CBC Radio column: A stolen laptop and the future of criminal justice

By DJ Kelly May 18, 2011

In this alberta@noon column on CBC Radio One with host Donna McElligott I talk about the future of crime fighting. Specifically we discuss the saga of Sean Power and his stolen laptop. He had free tracking software that he used to see what the thief was doing and live-tweeted the entire event. His followers, friends and others solved the crime and even got the laptop back. All from 800 km away. And after the police wouldn’t help. What could this mean for the future of crime fighting? Welcome to the world of personal responsibility.
