Plod wants your PC? Brick it with a USB stick BEFORE they probe it

One of the first thing the police do is plug in a USB device in that simulates the mouse moving to stop any inactivity password from activating.

I'd have a program that lock from inactivity plus locked from a change to usb devices. As soon as anything is plugged in or unplugged, it would lock and ask for a password.
