SWAT raids house becasue man failed to password protect his network

Now don't get me wrong here, I think child molesters and kiddie pron freaks need to have their nuts choppedoff. But it seems to me that the knee-jerk reaction of the public to terms like "pedophile" are a police-state wet dream. Who the hell is going to come out to defend an alleged sex creep? No one. Which means that the police can get away with whatever the fuck they want under the guise of going after kiddie fiddlers. Alleged sex offenders and pornographers are the proverbial canary in the coalmine. What happens to them today, will be happening to the rest of us in ten years from now as the fascist police state nudges the goalposts along under the guise of "protection." Shit like this should NEVER happen in a free country. And they sure as shit should not be blaming the victim of police violence for not putting a password on his damn router.

NY case underscores Wi-Fi privacy dangers

BUFFALO, N.Y. – Lying on his family room floor with assault weapons trained on him, shouts of "pedophile!" and "pornographer!" stinging like his fresh cuts and bruises, the Buffalo homeowner didn't need long to figure out the reason for the early morning wake-up call from a swarm of federal agents.

That new wireless router. He'd gotten fed up trying to set a password. Someone must have used his Internet connection, he thought.

"We know who you are! You downloaded thousands of images at 11:30 last night," the man's lawyer, Barry Covert, recounted the agents saying. They referred to a screen name, "Doldrum."

"No, I didn't," he insisted. "Somebody else could have but I didn't do anything like that."

"You're a creep ... just admit it," they said.

Law enforcement officials say the case is a cautionary tale. Their advice: Password-protect your wireless router.
