Testing is never optional and you never believe a salesman


#1

OK this guy is a snake oil salesman and deserves to be beat and jailed, but didn’t anyone bother to test the devices before they purchased them? I also wonder how much he got from the bad guys as a kickback for basically disabling law enforcement.


#2

I read an article from 4+ years ago where this guy was already under suspicion of fraud, selling these bogus devices. I guess it took this long for him to be sentenced.

Most of his victims were Iraqi law-enforcement. Apparently he made most of his sales at the height of Iraq’s sectarian conflict, when local law enforcement was [em]really[/em] desperate for any kind of solution, even if it sounded too good to be true.

10 years not enough.
working a lot with people who search and detect old munitions and bombs. The daily put at risk there life to bring us a clean areal.


#4

Even more interesting is the fact that one of his customers swears the devices aren’t fake, and that they’ve caught several bad guys and prevented several crimes using the devices.
