Photography is Not a Crime surpassed 1.5 million page views since January 2008 this past weekend, which is not bad considering I reached a million page views only five months ago, meaning I’ve averaged 100,000 page views a month since then.

The recent story on the Chicago-area cop who was jailed for rape after beating a 15-year-old student for having an untucked shirt – and who killed his ex-wife’s new husband only to be hired by another department – ended up getting posted on Reddit where it drew more than 18,000 page views on Saturday (as well as 761 upvotes and 313 comments on Reddit).

So I just wanted to say thanks to my readers who send me stories and tips and continue supporting this site, even if I have been slacking a little lately.
