Egyptian relief: Can you pick the perp? Crime stoppers Friday!

Egypt is dominating the news all over the world and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Tomorrow will feature an article that will discuss the old phrase of "be careful what you wish for."

Therefore, for a little Friday respite now that Mubarak has stepped down and all is well in that part of the world (Friday sarcasm), let's see if you, the reader, can Pick The Perp!

Everyone has a pretty good idea of what a criminal looks like right?

When you take all of the societal biases out of the process, can you really tell who the car thief is? Or who committed a burglary or assaulted a police officer? How about securities fraud?

The answer to this question is probably not. There are no "norms" when it comes to criminals or breaking the law. Just look at Lindsay Lohan who was nailed for "allegedly"stealing a necklace that she could easily afford.

Try your hand at police lineups

Try this simple game at The Smoking Gun and when its over, if you didn't get enough go to picktheperp.com where an unlimited number of lineups are available.

For example, was this woman charged with possession of a controlled substance or was it someone else in the lineup?
