Dumbass Idea of the Week: Fail DEA Servers

Picture this.  Dr. Armand Angulo illicitly distributes prescription drugs to thousands of people over a good number of years.  The DEA catches him and indicts him.  The case is a sure thing because there's a mound of evidence to prove his guilt.  The problem?

There's so much evidence that the DEA servers can't handle it.  Apparently, the evidence mounted against this guy took up almost "5% of the DEA's entire global network," and it was such a burden on their outdated shit that they had no choice but to . . . wait for it . . .

drop the charges against him.

That's right.  The charges were dropped because they simply couldn't handle all the evidence any longer.  If that wasn't enough, the case was dropped "with prejudice, meaning it cannot be refiled in court."  Apparently he's wanted for a lot of other shit, but that's okay, because he fled the U.S..

Way to go DEA and the American legal system.  It's because of you that outstanding citizens like him can roam free and give out prescription drugs.

The DEA is also responsible for such wonders as Operation Fast and Furious, but we won't go into that here.
