    "Palin found dozens of e-mail messages and documents stacked up in trash folders"

    No... looking at files left in the trashbin hardly consitutes hacking.

    You realize it was the 'trash folder' on the computer ... not as in trash folder sitting on the floor of his office?

    Crabtownboy, in the other Palin thread you claimed to not be placing the crime on the one it was committed against...yet you are doing just that here. Typical liberalism

    I bet you started a thread how Reginald Denny shouldn't have been driving his truck through a black neighborhood :BangHead:

    http://www.usdoj.gov/criminal/cybercrime/reporting.htm

    Reporting Computer, Internet-Related, or Intellectual Property Crime
    Internet-related crime, like any other crime, should be reported to appropriate law enforcement investigative authorities at the local, state, federal, or international levels, depending on the scope of the crime. Citizens who are aware of federal crimes should report them to local offices of federal law enforcement.

    Reporting Computer Crime
    Reporting Intellectual Property Crime
    Reporting Computer Hacking, Fraud and Other Internet-Related Crime

    The primary federal law enforcement agencies that investigate domestic crime on the Internet include: the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the United States Secret Service, the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) , the United States Postal Inspection Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) . Each of these agencies has offices conveniently located in every state to which crimes may be reported. Contact information regarding these local offices may be found in local telephone directories. In general, federal crime may be reported to the local office of an appropriate law enforcement agency by a telephone call and by requesting the "Duty Complaint Agent."

    Each law enforcement agency also has a headquarters (HQ) in Washington, D.C., which has agents who specialize in particular areas. For example, the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service both have headquarters-based specialists in computer intrusion (i.e., computer hacker) cases.

    To determine some of the federal investigative law enforcement agencies that may be appropriate for reporting certain kinds of crime, please refer to the following table:

    Type of Crime Appropriate federal investigative law enforcement agencies

    Computer intrusion (i.e. hacking) FBI local office
    U.S. Secret Service
    Internet Crime Complaint Center

    Password trafficking FBI local office
    U.S. Secret Service
    Internet Crime Complaint Center

    Thou shalt not bear false witness...

    Slander to make King Messiah Obama look good is the typical, liberal worship given to Obama.

    Liberals are runnin' scared!

    Yes. My point remains. Looking in the trashbin (on the computer) does not make one a hacker.

    As I have seen on another board the comment "Liberalism is a fatal disease!", this thread just confirms that statement!!!!!!

    To say the liberals are "DESPERATE" is as much of an understatement as just calling Hitler a guy that didn't like Jews.

    WOW!!! This is Twilight Zone material.
