A federal judge has ordered a woman to provide an unencrypted version of her laptop's hard drive in a ruling that raises the question of whether turning over a password amounts to self-incrimination.
What a horrible decision U.S. District Judge Robert Blackburn handed down last week ("Fake Marine should pay for his sins," Web, Water Cooler, Monday). Judge Blackburn upheld the American Civil Liberties Union-backed "freedom of speech" defense of a phony war veteran. I need not remind readers that the Stolen Valor Act of 2005 was written into law because of the damage phony veterans have done to the dignity and prestige of our bona fide veterans and war heroes.
Attention, phony war heroes: Dust off those surplus uniforms and shine up those medals awarded by eBay.
Blackburn says the content of the computer adds nothing to what the government already knows.
