    NYC cases show crooked cops' abuse of FBI database - Yahoo! News

    On a national basis, the amount of potential abuse could be staggering, if you think about how many have access to this database... :(

    You can't have a database like that without abuse occurring. What matters most to me is how aggressively that abuse is pursued; whether there is some sort of accountability.

    It sound like if you have another officers info you may be able to crack their soft password and then you can tag him with your activity... that does not bode well for accountability....

    at least in NYPD..... Most small deptarments have very strict controls, and accountability.... if you get caught you get FIRED.....

    And that is why we have USB memory sticks. Grab the backup, get it on the memory stick, take it home, restore to non networked computer. And write some queries just like the geek gods intended!
