Before anyone moans about this post or closes the thread ......READ IT ...... and look in your consciences and be honest .
I`ve been watching this thread and waiting for someone to talk about the other major , more important , aspect in this case . Now it seems to me that all that can be said about the length of passwords , their complexity , remembering them and the dificultys of cracking them has been said ........... SO ....... what about the legal aspects ? Doesnt that side interest anyone ? Isnt anyone interested in their , our all , legal rights ? In justice ? In democratic principles ?
Someone has made a statement about another person . The police have investigated and useing the statement and probably details from his ISP they didnt get enough evidence to charge him . On the basis of what was in that statement and maybe details from his ISP they got a warant to search his house . They didnt find any evidence against him . The ISP has told the police what they know = every IP adress that he has had contact to for at least several months if not more than a year . The ISPs are legaly obliged to save that info = the IP adresses that he contacted , when , for how long and how much trafic he sent and recieved and from where . From that info they didnt get any suspicious details like the IP adresses of known criminals . If they had they would be able to get warants to search those peoples houses and gather evidence . Again .... remember throughout this investigation they havent found any / enough evidence to charge him . SO they do the dirty buisness that they are so well known for and so good at and charged him with not provideing evidence against himself !!!!!! He was found guilty and put in prison .
Things to think about ------>
Was the guy of previous good charakter ? It sounds like it to me as there was no mention of past offences wich would normaly happen if there had been offences .
That law and the laws about ISPs keeping peoples conection data for months to more than a year were introduced ...... because of the oh so convenient "terror threat". The guy is not a "terrorist" and is not acused of being one or haveing conections to "terrorists" .
It has abolished the right to silence , the right to not give incriminating evidence against oneself , the right to privacy and habeas corpus ......the back bones of british and many other countrys legal rights systems .
Now unsubstantiated statements are enough to try someone , find them guilty and inprison them .
What are they going to do when he gets out ? Try him again ? I hope not as part of british and many other countrys law says trhat a person cant be tried and punished for the same offence more than once . With that in mind what was the point in trying him , and then putting him in prison in the first place ?....... If he is a perv he could be haveing a better time in the nick than the judges wanted .......... LOL.....
Prisons dont work in fact they are counter productive in the extreme . A very very large percent of people who get sent to prison get sent again later in their life . A good example is someone gets sent down for a petty offence . When he is in criminal university .....Ooops !!! sorry prison ..... he learns how to steal cars , bypass burgler alarms and meets REALY big profesional criminals and makes international criminal conections . He also comes out with a grudge against society , the police , the courts and the government ......... and it costs US money .
There is a realy disgusting trick that they could use and that is when he gets out do a gate arrest on him . ( = They wait till he walks out of the doors of prison and arrest him at the gate ) . That means that they can then lock him up again while they do more investigations . Again back to the war against islam ....... it used to be that in the unUK they could hold people for two working days ...... not includeing the weekend = when they dont like someone they arrest him on a friday morning and hold him till monday , now that length of time has been increased . I dont know how long it is now but i have read something about 1 month . If that doesnt work then they can take him back to court for ignoreing a court order and lock him up again . They can continue doing that untill the end of time because every time he goes to court they make a court order against him and each one is a seperate charge .
Anyone who thinks that just because someone is acused of something and a judge orders a house search that that person is guilty or anyone who refuses to give evidence is guilty / must have done somethig wrong forgets ...... sorry ....... 6 million jews , the inquisition , the US cold war , vietnam , korea , iraq , palastine , the reasons why the founding fathers left the unUK to found the US ......... blah blah the list is endless .
One of the main principles that the US state is based on is the right to carry arms and to form malitias .......... because the people who made the US constitution believed that joe public has the right to defend himself and his country against his own government if they step out of line = The people who made the US constitution believed that governments cant be trusted 100 % , that a democracy is the will of the people and that governments dont always respect that and do undemocratic and criminal things .
Have you got any secrets ? If asked would you tell big brother all of them ? Have you NEVER broken any laws ? If you have then you are a criminal as there is no such thing as an ex-criminal = MOST ....BS..... ALL of us are criminals . Are the people here who use long passwords criminals ?
I hope noone feels ofended by that ...... if they do they should examine their thoughts and reactions and ask themselves why and explain it here ......... i just think its a to important aspect to not talk about .
I`d like it if you were all grown up enough to talk about it and this post without throwing excrement at me ...... please . We are all in this , life , situation together and blind faith in justice and legality has never got anyone anywhere nor has wearing rose coloured glasses ....... or trivial skin deep chat .
