Not a crime story, just interesting: New Jersey has revoked a set of vanity license plates reading "BIOCH" after someone complained. It's a misspelling of a made-up word, biotch, which often replaces ... well, use your imagination. The license plates' owner is nonplussed. From the New York Daily News:
"It sort of makes me feel like almost an invasion of privacy or taking away your freedom of speech," said Romano, 49, a mom of three grown sons from Manville.
"It's a plate. It's not a word really. It's made up, and if you want to get technical, it's spelled b-i-o-t-c-h."
