Re: This is a good thing for smart criminals

I think underestimating the police is pretty reasonable. Don't know about the UK but in the US they give candidates an IQ test and will reject them if it is too high! If the FBI gets involved you have to worry, if it is only my local police or sheriff the smartest guy on the force is probably no match for the average Reg reader.

I have my phone next to me right now but I haven't touched it for over an hour, which is plenty of time to have committed a robbery. Of course, most robberies are committed night while most are sleeping, so if I claim I was asleep in my bed the fact I haven't browsed or even touched my phone will hardly be surprising to the jury.
