What a hoax of a crime. Hackers provide a public service free of cost and should get a reward every time they reveal that the companies the agency's and governemnt are hiring to create these programs are cheating taxpayers. If any thing the police should be chastised and some heads roll for buying and paying for faulty services. What ever company installed and wrote the programs should be the ones in court to explain then demand a financial accounting of losses.

The only losses the taxpayers and police repaying the companies to fix the flaws while police play with their tax funds in giving contracts to inept computer companies.

Hackers should be given a license to hack and reveal flaws and thanked for revealing fraudulence program writers defrauding the taxpayers. Revealing a crime is not being participant in the fraud and should have the same immunity the Federal Whistle Blower Act which the law protects whether civilians or employees.
