Last month there were two thefts from people connected to Slovene president Janez Drnovšek. Each time there was a computer (with possibly sensitive data) stolen among other minor valuable things. After first theft the police immediately issued a notice that the theft probably isn’t related to the president, rather that it was a coincidence. After the second theft they immediately claimed the same, plus that two incidents aren’t related. Even though they didn’t have a clue who was behind the thefts and what were the reasons at that time. Isn’t that really brilliant crime investigation from our police? Here comes even more fascinating investigation conclusion.
After a while they arrested a couple of drug addicts that stole one of the computers and sold it to another person. But here comes the witchcraft touch: the police says the data wasn’t compromised in any way. How can police be so sure that nobody copied the harddrive or stolen the data in some other way – the computer was missing for weeks? Are they using some alien surveillance technology?
Statements like that certainly don’t add to police credibility, do they?
