Dum da dum dum…

I just read a series of articles on the online version of the Independant Weekely, a newspaper out of Durham, NC

The stories (linked below in chronological order) relate the tale of a High School student who was questioned by 2 law enforcement officers about a suspected hacking incident at Chapel Hill High School.

Looks like a couple laws were broken, but not the ones you might think.

“The FBI has been reading my diary” –May 28, 2003
“Silly cops!” –June 4, 2003
Faking It –June 11, 2003

I’m looking forward to reading any followups on the story.

I guess there’s two morals to this story:

  1. Be careful what you write in your blog, some people might not be hip to your pop-culture references.
  2. Don’t be an idiot and go breaking fedral laws during an investigation.
