Virtually every top comment is a victim-blaming shitfest
Nope, not a single comment "blamed" the victim for having their laptop stolen.
Every single comment is however calling out that someone who leaves their laptop in an unlocked car can not in any way be called a "security expert".
"Ooooh CRIME he's a hacker! Arrest the victim!"
Nope, not a single person is calling for his arrest.
Most comments are pointing out that in his efforts of vigilante justice he's committed slander and accessed someone's account in an unauthorised way. Someone who he never confirmed committed any crime, was never charged or prosecuted.
"Every security expert encrypts every piece of technology they own regardless of circumstances! It's his own fault!"
Not a single person here has tied the word "fault" to his lack of encryption. They are just rightfully questioning the "security expert's" credentials given the circumstances. In fact several comments here even say if he encrypted it, then it would be his fault.
".. and they ALWAYS take every possession with them everywhere they go, and never lock anything in their vehicle, because they're infallible! Clearly he's not an expert!"
Well yeah. We hold "experts" to the standards set by their titles. Unlocked, and left valuable items, that's multiple concurrent failures for an "expert".
And just like that poor thief who's so quick to vilify an unknown person in possession of his laptop and slander them as a thief, you too have not stopped to even properly read let alone think about the posts of the people you are criticising.
I know right!
