Don't assume that fungus must be less toxic -- there are some true horrors in that direction. Granted, I can't imagine someone using the nastier forms of fungus as building materials, but blanket statements are no one's friend when it comes to the safety of fungi.
Weak encryption is like having a flimsy door and cheap lock. Strong encryption is like having a metal security door and a quality lock. World class encryption is like living inside a bank vault.
Just because a strong door or strong encryption might slow down a police search warrant execution does not mean it can only be used for evil ends. For every SWAY raid, there are hundreds or thousands of crimes from home invasion to sneaky burglaries -- if there weren't, the police would be out of a job.
Outlawing encryption is no different than outlawing locking your front door when you leave the house. And who gets to decide that your front door is too strong to be legal?
Two or more people violating constitutional rights commit a felony crime by doing so. If anyone dies as a result of the violation of rights, even a cop being shot to death by a victim of the rights violation, the rights violation becomes a capital crime.
How precisely does expecting people to obey they law make the site anti-law?
"Second, the gloom and doom predictions of legacy industries over new technologies is time-worn and has never been even remotely correct."
Eh, it depends on the industry. The technology to refine petroleum cheaply had one hell of a dooming effect on the whale oil industry, and when was the last time you bought an 8-track tape of the latest hits?
What the officers did meets the legal definition of aggravated sexual abuse (rape). While a body cavity search can be legal under some circumstances (with a warrant), the absence of a warrant means this wasn't a lawful search but rape -- no more, no less.
And the department already 'investigated' and determined that the officers committed no wrongdoing because they followed department policies and procedures?
