Re: What? No reference to "think of the kids"?

I know in the real world, at least for now, there'd be enough physical evidence to still catch the creep

Don't be to sure on the physical evidence. If I can walk in to the databases through the back doors, what's to say I can't change the DNA or fingerprint records to suit myself?

Like with the "deepfake video" stuff, once this door is opened I doubt it can ever be closed again, and all a defence lawyer has to do is question if the records can be trusted (of course, that also assumes a judge and/or jury with 2 functional brain cells)
