Little reason to make up evidence. I think we all know there's plenty of copyrighted material on MegaUpload

But their is always reason to follow proper legal mandates, which was not done in this case by any stretch of the imagination. Being in the right does not give an organization free reign to act like the Gestapo.

They're not making up evidence, that's not the point. The entire arrest and seizure was illegal without the proper warrant, and the tape of the raid has vanished to hide the display of unnecessary force Kim Dotcom complained about when he was arrested in the first place.

Further, the US DoJ is still trying to claim it has the right to delete everything and refuse Dotcom's lawyer's access to any of the stored material (read: Evidence) prior to an actual trial.

This has sleaze written all over it.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

True. Things being lost when in police custody is pretty much them holding up a big sign saying that they are fixing the evidence. This whole case stinks of police across the globe doing the MAFIAA's bidding.

Not true. As an officer I get just as frustrated when the city/county loses my evidence. It actually hurts me more than it helps me on my cases.

But you're Batman, you should whip Alfred for not making copies.

Its logical that the Author if he is the same, still hasn't figured out what a spellcheck is So 2 errors in 2 articles is continuity ,)

Well I'm not calling him that dumb, neither of those errors are spellcheckable. I just don't see how they remain there despite being so obvious and early on.

Maybe the cops decided they weren't happy about being compelled to do the bidding of private industry and this was their way of showing it.

The first two articles I read had glaring typos right at the beginning.

"MegaUplaod" in the linked article and then "quire" instead of "quite" in the first sentence of the article about the missing footage. Same author too.

Turns out, you can't just shrug off collateral damage and that people who aren't even accused of any crimes have rights too!

The whole story, including articles linked from this article is actually quite interesting.

The US authorities didn't have the proper warrant when they arrested him and took all his stuff, and tried to get the right warrant as an afterthought with the expectation that it would be retroactive.


Then they "lost" the video footage of the raid, which was safe and secure in police custody.

As shady as Dotcom is, the US DoJ is coming across as even shadier in this scenario.
