+ - CHP officer steals nudies from arrested girl to his own cellphone

sabri (584428) writes "Apparently your cellphone is not safe in the hands of the CHP. CHP officer Sean Harrington, 35, of Martinez, was caught stealing nudies from the cellphone of a woman he had just arrested.

What did the CHP do? They must have fired the bastard! Nope. They gave him a deskjob: 'The five-year CHP veteran has been assigned to desk duties', the CHP explains."

That will be delegated to the ISPs.

Ah yes, the forceful delegation of government responsibilities, and their cost, to businesses. Now an ISP is forced to basically become the tax man.

Well, if Hungary wants to go back to the communistic age, they're welcome to do so. But please stay the F out of the EU and join the USSRv2 with Ukraine.

Like I said yesterday:

I've said it many times before, and will say it again. The UK is not what it used to be. It used to be the bastion of European freedom, the saviors against Hitler.

At this time, they're exactly the opposite. They're on the front-lines of oppression, limiting freedom of speech and monitoring online and offline behavior all in the name of "save the children".

Remember, we let neo-nazis and racists rally, and we let fundamentalists protest funerals and abortion clinics. This is freedom.

Mod parent up. Lot's of people don't understand that this is the tradeoff society makes when implementing freedom of speech: it also applies to speech that you don't agree with.

End result is, his connection is being tampered with, and he is not recieving the service he paid for.

True that, and I fully agree. BUT: the article suggests something far more evil than the evidence provided suggests, and that's what annoys me.

And like I said, transparent proxying has been done for a long time, and is actually undergoing a phase of renewed youth thanks to CDN/TIC solutions like PeerApp and this Brocade/Bluecoat solution.

I call bullshit without more evidence. From the article:

When it detects the STARTTLS command being sent from the client to the server, the mobile wireless provider modifies the command to âoeXXXXXXXX.â The server does not understand this command and therefore sends an error message to the client.

This smells like a transparent proxy for mail, in a similar manner is providers have been doing transparent proxying for a long time. This does not necessarily have anything to do with DPI and selectively modifying server's responses to client requests.

The whole article is written by folks who clearly have no idea about how the internet works.

France is a leader in aviation (#2 exporter) and european aerospace,, medicine, nuclear fuel reprocessing, genetics, second largest defense tech maker, France is ranked #4 in research after U.S, Japan, Germany.

France is also the number one destroyer of their own economy, with everyone going on strike as soon as someone farts and doesn't say "excusez moi".

Seriously, fuck the French with all their strikes. I'm avoiding France like the plague, and never ever will I travel through CDG again if I can avoid it. Half of the time the flight is cancelled, or someone is on strike. Whether that is ATC, pilots, cabin crew or ground personnel.
