    There are a number of good reasons to dislike Apple/Jobs

    I don't see how this is one of them.

    Now whether or not the police were overstepping their boundaries when they raided the place, that's a different argument, and entirely possible.

    I still don't see why they felt the need to raid his home, personally. I mean, if they're going to press felony charges against him, he posted all the information about how he got the phone on Gizmodo. Not hard to really look that shit up.

    But what other things may he have illegally purchased? Only one way to find out.

    And they're allowed to raid your office before anything has been charged, when this is specifically dealing with the iPhone, which has been returned already by Gizmodo?

    I thought that if they wanted to see if he purchased anything else illegally, they'd have to actually file charges first.

    You have to get warrants to collect evidence, and you need evidence to file charges. (I mean, you could file charges with no evidence, but that's probably not going to work out too well in terms of getting the right person)

    Let's say they believe Chen and the seller arranged the deal via emails sent from his home laptop (maybe the seller told them that, for instance). Then they have probable cause to believe there is evidence related to the crime in his home, and they tell a judge, and he signs a warrant, and they go and collect the evidence, and Chen whines like a babby about a "raid".

    It just seems like a whole lot of trouble when they already posted how they got it online. Seems kind of redundant to actually seize his computers and servers when they already know he paid $5000 for it from some guy who contacted them.

    Unless they're trying to press charges against the guy who found the phone, which would technically be covered under that shield law, right?

    Dog you don't seem to understand how criminal cases are built on evidence and how more and better evidence is always useful.

    No, I don't. Since Gizmodo openly talked about the whole iPhone debacle on their own website, disclosing how much they paid for it, who received it. How long they had it for, what happened in regards to it, etc.

    Just seems like overkill when the evidence is right there without a police raid.

    Hypothetical: They claim they made it all up.

    You're the lazy prosecutor who figured why gather any other evidence, you have no evidence other than the story they now say was made up. You're royally boned

    I guess that means that Apple isn't filing the charges, and this is being done completely by the police? I'm assuming that Apple's emails with contact information with Gizmodo would be dismissible as evidence if Gizmodo claims they made it all up, including testimonies about how the one engineer lost the iPhone originally and how Apple received the prototype back from Gizmodo?

    You had been using your immense power to fight people at the local pub and win money from the bets.

    One day you saw a highwayman riding down a dusty road. A fair maiden begged you to stop the thief, but you couldn't be bothered to waste his time on petty criminals.

    Later that same highwayman thrust his rapier through the heart of your Uncle. From that day you swore to do what was right.

    "Hey man we found it on the street that guy who says we bought it is just trying to deflect attention"

    Look, when you are investigating a crime there isn't a set amount of evidence that is "enough". If you think there is evidence that either reinforces or contradicts what you have, you go get it too. And you get a judge to give you the ability to get it if you can't legal get it otherwise, like if it's in someone's house.
