    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.
