Comment: Trespassing? (Score 1) 267

by HerbertStencil (#39881339) Attached to: FBI Caught On Camera Returning Seized Server
Well, assuming they had a warrant for the seizure in the first place, fine and good that they did their job looking for the bad guys. But I don't think a judge would have given them a warrant to break in and return the server unless they thought no one had noticed it was gone. Why did they not just call the owner and say they wanted to return the server. Were they trying to be nice by returning it to its rightful place. How did they get in to return it? Has this place no security? Did they bully some pimply faced security guard into opening the door? Did the guard have authority to grant them access to the cage? No legal access means trespassing; the feds are not above laws on criminal trespass.

+ - The Jumanji effect? Warm winter wreaking havoc on ->

Submitted by Velcroman1
Velcroman1 (1667895) writes "Ravenous black bears scurrying through trash cans for dinner, mosquitoes swarming in the early grass, amorous deer behaving like, well, rabbits. Creatures great and small are being thrown for a loop this winter as the unusually warm climate stirs all forms of wildlife from their natural hibernation and reproduction cycles. Call it the “Jumanji effect.”

It will cause bat populations to crater and had famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil stirring early. And rather than hibernating through the freezing snowstorms typically seen from October to March, black bears are likely to wake early — and they’ll be ravenous, said Paul Curtis, a professor of natural resources and wildlife specialist with Cornell University. “They’ll be hungry when they come out of their dens after hibernating all winter,” Curtis said. “Their fat reserves will be gone and they’ll be looking for easy food.”"
