The judge doing this needs to be put into prison for this crime.

That's a odd way to spell "needs to be put in front of a firing squad".

Firing squad's too good for him. Give him a lethal injection with bleach as a warning for the rest.

No. The law is on my side. The system isn't.

who is the real criminal, the man behind bars, or the one who unjustly put him there?

You can't detain someone indefinitely like this.

Innocent until proven guilty.

Well, you obviously CAN. It's not supposed to be able to happen, but it is happening.

The courts also concluded that it was a "foregone conclusion" that kid porn was on the drives because a forensic examination revealed that the "hash" values of the files have been linked by the authorities to known child pornography.

I have never heard of a "hash" value linked to known child pornography file. It sounds like the cops are lying again.

How do you have a 'hash value' of file on a scrambled up, encrypted drive?

[–] Tb0n3 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

It's possible the files were hashed in the OS when accessed for thumbnails or some background process.

[–] bezzy 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Very standard for police and also companies like google to keep hashes of known illegal images and then hash files on either a drive or in an email, then compare them. In some cases even hashing segments of an image, as in, the top right corner so that changing a pixel or some trailing data doesn't help evade detection. Software tool suites like FTK do basically automated detection.

I've searched all I can for an update in this case, but this looks like it's the latest(another goat said he'd been murdered, but I found no corroborating article).

Basically, the negro believes it's better to be in jail and suspected of child porn than to confirm it and still be in jail. He's kind of a hero to some in his current status. He'd lose that and possibly his life if he let them confirm the CP on his computer.

Man in jail 2 years for refusing to decrypt drives. Will he ever get out? | Ars Technica

'Another way for the contempt order to be lifted would be for Rawls to unlock the drives. '

'A now-fired Philadelphia cop has been behind bars for almost two years for refusing to decrypt hard drives that authorities found at his residence as part of a federal child-porn investigation. '

'If the justices take the case, it would be the first time they weighed the constitutionality of whether forcing somebody to decrypt hardware amounts to a Fifth Amendment violation. '

'On Thursday, his lawyers are set to ask a federal judge to release him while he appeals the reason for his confinement to the Supreme Court. '

'UPDATE: Many readers are asking a valid question about what happens if someone is ordered to decrypt hardware but claims they forgot the passcode. '

This has been an automated message.
