Next time read the article or at least the post before making unqualified remarks.
Sometimes they dont even bother dressing up - they just break down the door and point carbines at you

^ That, and jobs. Lots and lots of jobs. The jails, the people who build the jails, the states who get federal money for prisoners, the corrections officers, the court sheriffs, the judges, the people who design weapons, the factories who make them, the tech, the companies who supply computers, the lawyers, all the secretaries, clerks, janitors, companies who supply food to the prisons, the uniform makers for both prisoners and law enforcement, the list goes on and on and on...and on and on...it's (*#$ing huge.

Not too mention all the people supported by their commerce (i.e. judge Wapner buying his wal-mart street clothes, and whoppers at BK)

In recent years we were spending $10 BILLION to combat marijuana alone.

When I worked on the strip in Vegas, there would often be no less than 200 cops out there at night. They'd just hang out in huge clumps of cops and pull anyone to the side that didn't have a collared shirt and slacks, or looked even slightly sketchy and start searching them for no probable cause at all. Biggest group of corrupt pricks you ever met.

"Every new agent who goes to the Secret Service academy goes through a week of training" in computer forensics, including how to deal with encrypted files and hard drives, U.S. Secret Service agent Stuart Van Buren said at the RSA computer security conference last week.

The secret service is an arm of the treasury department. The treasury is simply an organization of account for the federal reserve. Which is not federal. The secret service is not part of the government.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_...Secret_Service

Since the establishment of homeland security the are now a roving gang of uniformed police state agents crawling all over washington in stupid cars that have police stenciled on them.

And well with a whole week of training. You can probably understand why I've been completely in gold and silver for the last nearly 3 years and only put money in a bank long enough to pay bills.

yes can use long passwords(63 random ASCII characters) but it will take you and while just to type it in, if you copy and paste they can get it from your RAM. Thats why you just use key files and have Eraser installed. If any thing you just right click on the key file and click erase( using Gutmann 35 pass ) which takes seconds, is not gonna be recoverable.

The keys is on the drive and it must be stored into memory in order to compare it, new hacks exist that can rip the key from RAM and viola, open says me!
that why you just keep a hammer around, as soon as you see cops knocking on your door you get to smashing

also the new truecryp 7 has triple ecryption if i'm not mistaken, some one correct me if i'm wrong,

What do you mean? Is this some indicator to a Keylogger or some one hacking you?

Welp, the UPS trick is certainly a lot easier then building a supercomputer from a cluster of PS3s.

Physical encryption keys, your best bet. You get caught, make it so that key can get erased. Who cares if you don't get the data back, it's important that they don't get the data back. =P

You can also set up trigger switches, a mini power supply, and an erase protocol. Set it up so the remote switch triggers a PCB board that runs between your MB and your HDD. This doesn't do anything but bridge the HDD cable to the HDD unless it's activated, then it runs it's own erase function strictly on the drive at hand. =) Yeah it would require a lot of technical skills, but I'm going to say if you are playing with government fire you should have those skills.

Honestly, no surprise and nor do I care.

[edit] When movies have those kill switches in file cabinets to burn the files, think that. You could also do it a more dangerous way. Set up a kill switch and some white phosphorus. If you don't know how that one is going to go down then I'm sorry you should look up white phosphorus. When that kill switch hits you won't have a drive to smash or erase.
