I thought this lock was fascinating. For some odd reason, it caught my attention. I wonder what it used to protect. Why isn’t it protecting anything now? Who might have walked through here? Who might have tried to walk through here?

Dearborn, Michigan — A Dearborn man learned this morning that when you handcuff your wife to the bed, you make sure you know where the key is first.
Dearborn Police officers responded to a call at 7:15 a.m. today by the man requesting help, Sgt. Ray Patrick said. They had to use a universal key to free the woman.
“I think it was more of an intimate relationship than an unlawful imprisonment,” Patrick said.
