    Police responsiveness / understanding of computer-related shenanigans?

    "We have got 140,000 cops and most of them don't know one end of the computer from the other," -- Detective Superintendent Charlie McMurdie, who will head the Police Central e-crime Unit (PCeU) - from El Reg: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/03...ament_malware/

    I've provided computer-related evidence/testimony to the police here about five times for various things that have been done by or to our students. The cases were open and shut - it was clear what had happened and where the blame lay.

    But somehow during the evidence -> police brains > "yay, easy conviction" > court > justice interchange, nothing was done.
