"You have Jail"


North Carolina law enforcement officials can now track individual criminal histories using a much more comprehensive collection of data, all managed and accessed via software provided by SAS. According to this recent news article, transitioning from the archaic text-screen-based system to the new web-based interface is "like switching between Pong and a Wii."

Just so there is no confusion: this is not the Wii-based SAS that was announced here last April 1. That was a joke.

Best line from the article: an e-mail alert that gets sent to the prosecutor if a defendant awaiting trial is arrested again -- it's a "You have Jail" message.
