Former Microsoft Security Analyst Probes Possible Police Civil Rights Violations.

For the past year and a half, Eric Rachner, a former security analyst at Microsoft, who currently works as an independent security consultant, has been trying to prove that Seattle police officers unlawfully arrested him for refusal to provide an ID. Through his insistent probing the researcher might have uncovered a way for others to prove that their civil rights were similarly violated.

A Saturday night in October 2008 found over twenty inebriated computer geeks, including Rachner and world-renowned security researcher Dan Kaminsky, playing a game of urban golf on the streets of Seattle. However, their apparently harmless drunken fun ended prematurely when a passer-by got hit in the face with a Styrofoam ball and called 911.

I read this story the other day. Seattle PD seems to have backed themselves into a corner. Never rely on shady practices to save you, especially when there's a hacker involved.

They could have gone with public intoxication if they were actually tanked. Being drunk and mouthy to a cop....not a good idea. Besides, being asked for ID and pointing to your butt...that's where my back pocket and wallet resides....could be .....misinterpeted???
