Interesting. I'm surprised the media had them in the first place!

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Starting at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, newsrooms in Jacksonville will have a much more difficult time reporting on crimes and other incidents in River City neighborhoods.
That's because the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is taking away police scanners that the media currently lease from the Sheriff's Office.
Police scanners are how news outlets learn about many police-related breaking news stories.
JSO has said certain police communication should not be heard by the media. It has also cited budget, safety and legal concerns.
At midnight, the Sheriff's Office will turn off the scanners and take them back Thursday.
Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.
YOU NEED PROFESSIONAL HELP! Seriously. Do it for yourself and loved ones. You have issues
