The judge in this case shows a total lack of knowledge of how wireless networks function.
From my Palm, Iíll use any WiFi access on non-secured networks and I certainly donít feel any guilt. The article does not state if the WiFi was secured or not.
But nevertheless, a wireless network is like a radio broadcasting a signal. Some are secure, some are easily broken (WEP), the whole point is that if you are broadcasting, donít expect privacy or the end of bandwidth tapping. Itís that simple.
SINC, giving military training to youths with criminal tendancies? Okay....
Perhaps mandatory military service of a few years would be an option to consider here in place of house arrest for teens who kill. Not a bad idea now that I think about it.
I can understand sending violent young offenders off to plant trees, fight forest fires, combat decertification, do habitat enhancement work, clean toilets, or collect litter from the side of the road, but military service?!? Are you crazy? The last thing I'd want a kid with a propensity to violence doing is learning how to use automatic weapons and explosives.
I'd argue that anyone with any sort of criminal or mental-health issues should be barred from military service, just like they're barred from police service.
Who says they have to be trained in guns? They could be in a special branch of the military to teach them respect and discipline, could they not? They could be used to do all the things you describe, but in a strict military environment as in "no fooling around here pal", type of training.
I really didn't even think about them using weapons. Today's military is about a whole lot of things other than weapons, but there could be zero involvement in weapons training by young offenders.
Under Harper and the pinhead in charge, we are far from the ideals that you are trying to pass off SINC.
I'm not sure if you have been in the military SINC, but what you do learn is how to fool around and get around the system....
