I first saw this infographic on Lee Lofland’s The Graveyard Shift, a terrific blog for anyone interested in police work or in writing about it.
I met Lee at a Writer’s Police Academy event in Ohio some years ago when I was working on my Ministry is Murder series. Since that time he’s moved the academy to Greensborough, NC, and it’s quite an amazing way to spend a long weekend. If you’re interested in criminology, this is great fun.
I loved this, and saved it for you because I know you’ll get a kick out of it, too. Notice how many laws pertain to animals?
What else can I say? If you live in any of these states, beware!
