Two shot in Las Vegas courthouse

Posted By on Mon, Jan 4, 2010 at 10:53 AM

Two federal agents were shot in a federal courthouse in Las Vegas today.

It is brutally coincidental that the headline comes not long after release of a Justice Department report indicating threats against federal judges and prosecutors have doubled over the last six years.

The stepped-up security is evident here, naturally. I also didn't know until last week that you are barred from taking a cell phone past Little Rock courthouse security if it has a camera. In the long ago days when I first arrived in Little Rock, just about anybody could wander in and out of judge's offices in the federal building. And, often, an odd lot did. Those days are over.
