So what is the problem? Security is more valuable than easy manipulation of
facts. The DOJ wasn't able to take computer experts in and change
information without authorization as they do in most cases they investigate.A police department operates on budget and resources which are no longer
luxuries for city's to have and pay for. A log book is good book keeping
and securely infallible. Police departments have to prioritize its work load and
this report is an example of federal interference on local departments. Making
demands they incorporate systems and methods not feasible by cost or priority.
I'm sure if every local government could have imaginary trillion dollar
budgets the sky is the limit. Technology is a hindrance to good police work and
unreliably because of its error prone outcomes and misinformation.There is nothing botched at all when they did every thing in their budget
would allow. Botched is a term to imply waste and incompetence when its all a
matter of funding and taxation. More states and cities should follow the Arizona
department and shut down what they can't afford, even in manpower.
