That router was actualy Cisco owned,( tho ordered by Brad January '08) so would and should have records of its activity regardless of where it was?? and so they should unless it gets utilized or sold to private party...What really bugs my butt is why did it take so long to figure that out?? Geesh!!..But, maybe Super intellent Puter geeks dont think that way ..Geesh.
Someone may correct me IF I am wrong..but wasnt these records requestioned months (Feb) ago..prior to trial to Cisco?..thus made it admissible?
The twists in this case are so bizarre. JW, CF it's like a security geek cage match. They are very much alike and clearly have great mutual respect for each other. Has the case gone completely haywire and become a techno battle rather than quest for justice?

I think this case is showcasing the future of what law enforcement might have to deal with - and highlights the limited capacity of detectives to deal with this kind of data, as well as the limited success in which attorney and experts can paint that picture I spoke of a couple months ago.
Regardless of the verdict - attorneys and PD's all over the country are going to be talking about, and learning from, this case.
LyndyLoo was spot on in her post. The focus on the "evidence" that the CPD was comfortable with - ducks, statements from friends, weird behavior, security tapes from stores, buying habits - all ultimately yielded nothing and perhaps just served to pi$$ off the jury when they realized it was much ado about nothing.
I still believe the jury will deliver NG. Just too much static clouding the case.
Regardless, since so many seem to have "inside" information about the defense and its case, who is the defense's trial/jury consultant?? Are they a local firm?

OT post/ I am just reflecting on how wonderful life is. Southdide Johnny, grilling food on the grill, sweet Josie beer and time spent with family. No matter how bad things get we always have our memories and thoughts of tomorrow to keep us going. We all make mistakes and we all find ourselves facing hard times. We must always remember that we can always walk and don't look back. Regardless how this ends we should remember that there woo always be better days!!!
I don't really blame the state, they are pretty much trying to work with the hand dealt to them. This case has proven that sometimes what looks so apparent may not be so when you dig really deep down into the details.
and the "Long Lost ROuter" which is mysteriously missing??? Amazing, eh?
