While thousands were being sued for piracy a couple of years ago a North Carolina police officer was RECORDED discussing downloading music for free. The officer named the name Kazaa which has appeared in numerous lawsuits and talked about how the songs were arranged in groups and you choose the songs and just click and get them. He said it was the thing to do everybody was doing it. He bet his daughters had downloaded a THOUSAND SONGS on his computer. He said he had to get a new computer his old one FILLED UP WITH MEMORY. He laughed and said he hoped the federal government did not come in and investigate him.
Shortly after this conversation we began reading the news articles people were being sued by RIAA and the FBI. They were calling piracy a crime of stealing and calling these people thieves. They were making serious verbal attacks against school and college students along with warnings being put in the schools of the consequences. The RIAA and the FBI on their websites encourage people to report piracy. The FBI Anti Piracy Warning says they investigate. At that time we reported the officer's conversation as well as his name to the RIAA and the FBI. It was ignored. A few months ago we were still reading news article people still being sued. Three of these cases that stood out were Joel Tennenbaum, Jammie Thomas and Whitney Harper all having to pay outrageous monetary amounts. In other cases included a grandmother and also a 12 year old sued. Now feeling ignoring the officer's conversation was unfair we began reporting the conversation to the RIAA the FBI the PD and several other anti piracy organizations along with the officerís name asking why this was not investigated. Again it continues to be ignored. If piracy is a crime as the FBI the RIAA and others proclaim why was this conversation ignored. Considering piracy is being called a crime and the thousands of people that have been sued shouldn't this conversation be investigated to see where the THOUSAND SONGS this officer talks about came from, who the everybody is that is doing this and if he or his daughters may have committed what RIAA, FBI and others are calling a crime. Ignoring this conversation seems to be an injustice to all the people that have been sued as well as to us as a citizen reporting it and it being ignored. How can they sue some and ignore a high ranking police officer discussing downloading music in this way. I feel this is wrong and donít understand how this is allowed. The funny thing is this officer is married to a Christain School Teacher and her sister is a public middle school teacher.
This same officer also RECORDED discussing a favor being asked. The officer﻿ said a local dentist had died while having sex in his office with a woman not his wife The brother who is an attorney in Raleigh NC phoned the PD asking to keep it quiet for the sake of the family. The officer said he started to tell him when you do something like this it is going to get around. Later the news paper printed the dentist's wife was at the officer waiting to go for a walk definitely not the story the officer told.
