You know, I wasn't going to respond to this, but what the heck:

"Criminals Use Electronics to Foil Police"
The increasing use of electronic communications by police and other law
enforcement bodies has lead criminals to engage in methods to
interrupt and eavesdrop (listen to) those communications using
off-the-shelf or home-built devices.
Emerging retail outlets such as "Radio Shack" (Boston, Ma) and "Allied
Radio" (Chicago, Il) have facilitated such criminal activity by
providing not only complete radio receiver sets, but components such
as vacuum tubes, condensers, resistors, and such that dedicated
criminals can use to build their own specialized devices.
Even a simple "crystal set" can be modified by interested criminals to
listen to police-radio frequencies.
This is a worrying trend, and regulators are busy considering ways to
put a stop to it.
