Forwarded from: Bill Schneid <SleuthOneat_private> Josh, My "Op-Ed" posting was not meant to be a thesis on the juvenile offender and their propensity for certain behavior. I could have bored the forum "to death." Society has long condemned the offender--even by forever black marking someone's "record" -if ONLY an arrest. Of course times have changed. I remember using a pocket calculator instead of a slide rule and getting a "F" for using a "cheating device." Getting back to point: Mitnick was/is the martyr for many. So-called "cybercrime" is still costing industry/govt billions and we are as ill-equipped to deal with the cyber-offender as we are with the drug-offender and we've had drug offenders around since the early 1900's. This is still the wild-wild west for law enforcement (yes, that includes criminologists) and the learning curve is lousey at best. Criminologists, by definition, deal with the so-called "criminal mind" and the "penal systems"--hardly a pure science. As to "digging up shit on you"--we only work when we get paid!

A professor friend said, on dealing with idiots: "One of the greatest lessons I can teach you is this: Don't wrestle with pigs. You get muddy, sweaty, tired, mad, covered with crap, and when you're done the pig loved it anyway." - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
