ICE ICE baby

Customs officials in a coordinated raid of 30 separate locations in 16 states searched for modchips and other piracy related devices in an attempt to hold off rampant software piracy.

I am all for going after criminals and software pirates deserve what they get. But I have to question how much of a priority is this? How much taxpayer money are we throwing at it? Wouldn't that money be better spent on preventing identity theft or more serious computer crimes?

And by the way, if you sell modified video games systems pre-loaded with games, you don't only deserve to be caught, you deserve a dope slap because you make it more difficult for people who are not trying to take advantage of someone.
