DETROIT -- Police officers from adjoining Detroit precincts argued with each other, shoved and even threw punches Thursday night during a raid on a suspected drug house, leaving two copsinjured, aninvestigation under way and ablack eye on the department.

“This is probably one of the most embarrassing things I’ve seen in this department,” Detroit Police Chief James Craig said during a news conference Monday afternoon at police headquarters.

Two officers accused of exchanging punches as the incident unfoldedhave been placed on restrictive duty and a supervisor wasreassigned from special operations pending the outcome of the investigation, Craig said.

Poor communication led officers from the 11th and 12th Precincts to be in the same area, at the same time, without proper notification, Craig said.

Officers from the 11th Precinct planned to raid a suspected drug house in the area they are responsible for covering. As they approached it about 6 p.m., the officers confronted two people several doors away, apparently not realizing they were undercover cops from the 12th Precinct, Craig said.

"Other companies s**k in your data too," Facebook explained in many, many words today with a blog post detailing how it gathers information about you from around the web.

>Facebook product management director David Baser wrote "Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn all have similar Like and Share buttons to help people share things on their services. Google has a popular analytics service. And Amazon, Google and Twitter all offer login features. These companies — and many others — also offer advertising services. In fact, most websites and apps send the same information to multiple companies each time you visit them". Describing how Facebook receives cookies, IP address, and browser info about users from other sites, he noted "when you see a YouTube video on a site that’s not YouTube, it tells your browser to request the video from YouTube. YouTube then sends it to you."

>It seems Facebook is tired of being singled-out. The tacked on 'them too!" statements at the end of its descriptions of opaque data collection practices might have been trying to normalize the behavior, but comes off feeling a bit petty.
