OH NOES! Linux!

Um. Sadly expected of police (although really, campus police should know *something* about computers), but getting a warrant?

So, Serious Business:
Should there be mandatory technology training for judges, given that we got past the steam engine a while ago?

I knew Linux users couldn't be trusted.

Law enforcement personnel in general should be required to have at least basic competency in tech-related areas, and really anything else they may be called upon to investigate.

I agree with you in principle but believe that to be an utterly hopeless case. I want to start w/ judges because they are theoretically required to be quite educated.

Getting better tech training in grade school would go a long way if and when the vast monolith of entrenched educational mistakes can be moved - all sorts of positive effects incl. possible economic boost, less average vulnerability to simple malware, perhaps greater demand for products that don't suck, possible added support (including coding!) for F/OSS projects, and the ripple effect that law enforcement etc will *by default* be less boneheaded about these things.

Sorry, but this has nothing to do with the officer not knowing anything about computers, and more of him suffering from a bad case of Stupid.
