You really have no idea. Go find a Mosin Nagant, an ancient Russian military rifle capable of hitting a target at over 200 yards with a high-power round for about $100.

Are expensive guns better than cheap ones? Sure! But there are cheap (and effective) guns for anyone who wants one.

Hey, it's an approach. Nothing works until it gets past a judge. It would have made for a better argument than the one he used (maybe).

Don't get me wrong. I'm not supporting a street thug. But law is a logic puzzle mixed with human irrationality. For instance, check out the genius who called me an idiot below. "That's not fair, so it can't be right!" Nope, doesn't work that way.

If by "don't want to compromise the investigation" they mean "don't want to let the crooks know what we know", they have already failed. Any action to remove material now is simply playing to politics.

Personally, I think the value of publishing the data is higher than not tipping your cards to crooks. They know what they left behind.
