"...and in the spirit of the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights"

Cool, lets see... oh

Article 18.

Call me slow but ... The Judge is asking for a passkey, not how to get it. Trying to explain to a judge you left a bread trail for the cops leading to the passkey is likely to confuse & irritate him/her.

Of course you do have a point, if they want to detain you they don't really need a reason anymore in the USa. But I think you are giving them just more reasons/ammo with this approach. Good chance the Judge will just smile and point out you can also retrieve the passkey with the help of your text file and unlock it way faster then the nice lady who "forgot" it.

If you then try to explain to him he doesn't understand the technology -- you will have the chance to discuss this fact with others sitting in jail waiting for a judge to understand Technology & the "Internetz".

^^ mod up. Indeed, she would of been told to sign it anyway, doing so under protest ---or doing so ... and protesting afterwards. Same result.

If she would of decided not to sign at all, someone else would of signed it. Maybe someone not protesting or apologizing at all.

We should be glad she is speaking up and making a bit of a fuss about it...

Diplomacy is the art of saying "nice doggy" until you can find a rock.
