Aussie cops deploy Lethal Weapon email server

'This is a real badge, I'm a real cop...'

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Unlikely as it may seem, we have just acquired evidence that the cops in Western Australia have gone and got themselves a sense of humour. For proof, check out this search which reveals the mail server used by Australia's finest, viz: riggs.police.wa.gov.au.

Nicely done. We were going to email the Aussie boys in blue for a comment, but thought better of it since any query is likely to be answered with:

Well, what do you wanna hear, man? Do you wanna hear that sometimes I think about eatin' a bullet? Huh? Well, I do! I even got a special bullet for the occasion with a hollow point, look! Make sure it blows the back of my goddamned head out and do the job right! Every single day I wake up and I think of a reason not to do it! Every single day! You know why I don't do it? This is gonna make you laugh! You know why I don't do it? The job! Doin' the job! Now that's the reason!

For the record, our DownUnder informant Peter Chance got no reply from missives addressed to murtaugh.police.wa.gov.au. ® ®
