Re: dssf SIGINT-Friendly Hotels
Why so punative with the down vote when text would have sufficed? Not as if was intentionally misleading or malicious.
Maybe I should have more thoughfully appended with:
In real life, hotels are bugged, mic'd, and some loaded with cameras -- in advance. Well, if watching shows about dumb criminals and drugs dealers are to be believed.
Besides, as for the episode, of course I know it's just a show. Still, even if scene-sequencing is bad, people still get handed OSA letters, don't they? And, that was an earlier episode. As the show progressed, they got into laser mic's and other stuff, just to try to look realistic. Some police agencies don't even have the best stuff and walk away with no intel, or illegally-obtained intel/evidence, or have to call another agency to help.
Gods, it so easy to incur negative points lately. But, in your case, sincerely, I DO appreciate that you gave an explanation. That softens some of the pain. Much appreciated!
