With the greatest respect, the Tea Party can go hang for all I care. I am only interested in the case, and the Tea Party have no part in that
specific element of this .
I find it interesting that the only copy of the files which are evidenciary regarding this loggers discussion with Tyson, were on his home computer.
If I was that guy I would have sent every family member, friend, local bar, and local political group a copy , and all the newspapers too! The fellow
knew already that he was under threat, and that he had a serious peice of evidence for corrupt practice by the DEP. The moment you get that kind of
dirt on a government body, it doesnt matter wether its the Department for the Lovely Treatment Of Small Fluffy Stuffed Animals, you get your
information dispersed and secured, and then you can at least rest easy in the knowledge that should you get your home raided, you will be able to get
your files back, or get them out in the wider public domain. Heck , you could by a system of tweets and mails get a network of fallback publishers
ready for the information should you or your home or family come under any form of assualt.
Of course none of that should be required because democracy ought to be democratic, but he knew it didnt work that way, and its a crying shame he
didnt step up to the plate and take some measures to protect his hard won data.
That said, Im amazed that local groups havent been up in arms about this. If this happened to a political activist in my backyard I would be at the
gates of my local civic centre with banners and flags and at least a hundred angry douchebags, within a matter of hours.
