British terror expert drops USB stick

Written by Nick Farell

Fortunately it was handed to the press
UK coppers are trying to find out how a memory stick containing top secret anti-terror documents was found dumped in the street. The USB memory stick contained 2,000 pages of highly-sensitive and confidential information.

It included how to deal with terrorism on British streets include strategies for acid and petrol bomb attacks, blast control training and the use of batons and shields. Just to be handy there was a list of top terror cop's names, ranks and their divisions.

It was dumped on the pavement outside the police station in Stalybridge, near Manchester where it was found by a  34-year-old businessman who was astounded by the contents when he fitted it into his laptop to check what was on it. Apparently it was not password protected.

He was so shocked he handed it into the press because dropping it into the Cop Shop where he found it might be a bit tricky.

LOL! He dropped it to press because giving it to cops would be tricky? :D Isn't it much worse to give it to the press which might publish it or use it in god know what means? :D ROFL! :) I think he did it for his 5 minutes of fame or a "finders fee" so to speak.. Or he is just dumbass :D

I take it you'd actually regret catching a glimpse on what governments do behind closed doors, huh? And you call him a dumbass?

That would be too simple for the British authorities, they always like to investigate in the most awkward and time consuming way possible
