Police Blame Computer Glitch For Inability To Catch Serial Rapist
from the wonderful... dept
We were just talking about situations where people would rely more on computers than their own brains to make certain situations, and it appears the Denver police have a specific example. They’re blaming a computer glitch for not helping them connect a series of rapes to a known serial rapist. Apparently, they were relying on an FBI contractor to move their data to another computer system (the FBI having computers problems? what a surprise) which resulted in some sort of computer glitch. Because of that, they were unable to identify DNA samples that would have pointed them to the rapist in question prior to him committing at least one more rape.
