An alleged thief stole a NASA engineer's package, and he came up with an epic revenge by designing a fake Amazon box complete with GPS, a glitter bomb, a stink bomb and hidden cellphones to record their reaction.  Mark Rober said a woman was caught on his home security camera walking up to his door and stealing a package off of his porch. When he brought the video to the police, they said it wasn't worth their time to investigate it, so he decided to take matters into his own hands.  What he came up with was a package that, from all appearances, looked like an Apple HomePod with an Amazon sticker on it. However inside is actually a high-tech box with a cup filled with glitter, a trigger to release it, a fart spray that whirls up and emits a stench every 30-seconds once the package is opened, and four hidden cell phones capturing the would be thieves' reaction from every possible angle, regardless of where the box is opened from.

Senate overwhelmingly passes criminal justice overhaul

The Senate passed a sweeping criminal justice bill Tuesday that addresses concerns that the nation's war on drugs had led to the imprisonment of too many Americans for non-violent crimes without adequately preparing them for their return to society. Senate passage of the bill by a vote of 87-12 culminates years of negotiations and gives President Donald Trump a signature policy victory, with the outcome hailed by scores of conservative and liberal advocacy groups. The House is expected to pass the bill this week, sending it to the president's desk for his signature. The bill gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders and boosts prisoner rehabilitation efforts. It also reduces the life sentence for some drug offenders with three convictions, or 'three strikes,' to 25 years. Another provision would allow about 2,600 federal prisoners sentenced for crack cocaine offenses before August 2010 the opportunity to petition for a reduced penalty.
