Danish police accidentally blocks 8000 internet sites including Google and Facebook

by RT News

Imagine logging on to Facebook only to find it had been shut down for offering child pornography? Visitors to some 8,000 websites in Denmark faced just that, when a “human error” by Danish police labeled most of the internet a sexual predator.


With the Internet under attack by a string of abbreviations ranging from ACTA to SOPA, avid web surfers have been a bit jumpy as of late.

In these troubled times, imagine the shock many Danish users of the Siminn internet service provider (ISP) received when a casual workday visit to Google or Facebook left this message ominously glowing on the screen:

“The National High Tech Crime Center of the Danish National Police [NITEC], who assist in investigations into crime on the Internet, has informed Siminn Denmark A/S, that the Internet page which your browser has tried to contact may contain material which could be regarded as child pornography.”

For several hours Thursday, that message appeared on the screens of 8,000 different websites, virtually bringing down large swaths of the Internet across the country. 

How did it all happen?

According to NITEC chief Johnny Lundberg, it didn’t take much.

The whole fiasco apparently began when an employee at the police center switched seats with his colleague.

With a few misguided mouse clicks, police were able to blacklist 8,000 websites instantly.

While Lundberg apologized and claimed that blocking sites in the future would require two people instead of one, the question remains:  should authorities have the power to take down the Internet in the blink of an eye?

Press Release: Cease-and-Desist Letter issued to Gerry and Kate McCann, parents of Missing Madeleine McCann


Gerry and Kate McCann, parents of the missing Madeleine McCann, find themselves for the first time at the other end of a potential legal action.

Top defense attorney, Anne Bremner, counsel to the Friends of Amanda Knox and the families of Rebecca Zahau and Susan Cox Powell, has issued a cease-and-desist letter (content posted below) on behalf of American criminal profiler Pat Brown whose book, Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, was removed from sale by Amazon following a claim by the McCanns that the book was defamatory. In recent years, the McCanns have instructed their solicitors, Carter-Ruck, to send numerous cease-and-desist letters to people who have publicly questioned their possible involvement in their daughter’s disappearance nearly five years ago while on family holiday in Portugal.

Next week, on February 8th, retired solicitor Tony Bennett faces English prison as the McCanns’ fight to shut down his efforts to bring focus to aspects of the missing child case that point to the parents’ possible involvement. Also, the McCanns have sued the detective on their daughter’s case, Dr. Goncalo Amaral, for libel and have had his book, Truth of the Lie, pulled off the worldwide market. The trial is scheduled in Portugal for April. Now, Pat Brown has fought back for the cause of freedom of speech and justice, alleging that the McCanns have interfered with her right to conduct business and have damaged her professional reputation with their successful removal of her book from sale. On Monday, Pat will leave for Portugal to continue her quest for truth and justice in the case of Madeleine McCann.

The Find Madeleine Campaign operated by Gerry and Kate McCann has spent some 2.5 million pounds on the supposed search for their daughter, Madeline, who vanished in Praia da Luz, Portugal while on vacation with the family nearly five years ago and have come up empty handed. Since last May, a 37-man team headed up by Scotland Yard has spent 1.5 million pounds on salaries plus many more pounds following up supposed leads with no sign of success. Altogether, four million pounds has been forked out to locate a missing child with zero results. What, then, does American criminal profiler Pat Brown hope to accomplish with her two week trip to Portugal, beginning next week on February 6, with her small band of assistants and a few hundred euros of her own money?
She could find the truth. She could find Madeleine. She could find nothing but at least she won’t be costing the taxpayers millions or draining the pocketbooks of kindhearted donators chasing useless leads.

Pat Brown will be following up on the theory she purported in her Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, her eBook which was pulled by Amazon at the request of the British solicitors Carter-Ruck on behalf of Gerry and Kate McCann. Amazon was told the book was defamatory in spite of the fact Ms. Brown clearly stated facts in the case, developed a theory based on those facts, and repeated numerous times that she makes no claim that the McCanns are guilty of any involvement in their daughter’s disappearance (other than leaving three children unattended night after night in the resort apartment). Since Gerry McCann clearly stated during the Levinson hearing, “I strongly believe in freedom of speech” and “I don’t have a problem with somebody purporting a theory,” it is difficult to understand why the McCanns wanted the book to be repressed, except that it was selling well and that the theory she presented was being considered credible by a number of readers.

During her trip to Portugal, Pat Brown will study the town of Praia da Luz and environs, reconstruct the crime, and examine possible locations as to where Madeleine might have been taken, dead or alive. If she discovers evidence to support a theory other than the one that was the focus of her book, she will pursue that information. She is looking forward to meeting with Dr. Goncalo Amaral, the ex-detective on the McCann case. Meanwhile, it is her hope and that of her lawyer, Anne Bremner, that the McCanns rethink their actions regarding the Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann and instruct their solicitors to have Amazon return the book to the market (now available at Smashwords and Barnes & Noble online).

Dear Mr. Tudor,
In July 2011, American criminal profiler, author, and television commentator, Pat Brown, released on June 15, 2011 a self-published book of thirty-pages on,, and, for the price of US2.99. It was titled Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, sold 850 copies over the next five weeks and garnered 49 nearly all five star reviews on alone. Then, the book vanished from sale on all three sites. Upon questioning, Pat Brown was informed by Amazon that they had received communications from Carter-Ruck on behalf of their clients Gerald and Kate McCann that the book was defamatory.
Mon 7/25/2011 7:27 PM

Dear Pat,
We have received a notice of defamation from Carter-Ruck Solicitors that says the content of Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann (UPDATED) B0055WYVCQ, contains defamatory statements regarding their clients, Gerry and Kat (sic) McCann.

Because we have no method of determining whether the content supplied to us is defamatory, we have removed the title from sale and will not reinstate it unless we receive confirmation from both parties that this matter has been resolved.
Carter-Ruck can be reached at:

6 St Andrew Street
London EC4A 3AE
T 020 7353 5005
Best regards,
Robert F.

 This was quite a surprise to Pat Brown as she had never received any communications from the McCanns nor their solicitors concerning any defamatory material in this book, nor had she ever received any communication concerning any defamatory material in her blogs on the case she has posted online at The Daily Profiler over the last four years. As Ms. Brown is an analyst of evidence, she is careful to not state anything as a fact that is not a fact and to clearly state what is a hypothesis or a theory as opposed to proof. She has publicly and repeated explained to anyone reading her analyses of crime that criminal profiling is a methodology which explores the possible and theoretical scenarios that might be considered as logical based on evidence connected with the crime – forensic, linguistic, or behavioral. Any findings resulting from investigative tools which are not acceptable in certain courts of law (such as cadaver dogs or polygraphs) are noted as suitable for speculation, but not as solid proof of anyone’s guilt or involvement in criminal activities. Criminal profiling itself is an investigative tool and not a finding of guilt as Pat Brown clearly notes in her book.

Due to the speculative, if analytical, nature of Deductive Criminal Profiling, the methodology used by Pat Brown, she was careful to repeat numerous times throughout her publication that she was not accusing the McCanns of being involved in any crime or in the disappearance of their daughter, Madeleine. She was clearly only “purporting a theory” and exercising “free speech,” both manners of communication Gerry McCann stated he strongly supported under oath at the Leveson Inquiry on November 23, 2011 in London:
"I would like to emphasize that I strongly believe in freedom of speech, but where you have people who are repeatedly carrying out inaccuracies and have been shown to do so, then they should be held to account. That is the issue. I don’t have a problem with somebody purporting a theory, writing fiction, suggestions, but clearly we’ve got to a stage where substandard reporting and sources, unnamed, made-up, non-verifiable, are a daily occurrence.” Gerry McCann

Pat Brown also believes in free speech and the right to purport a theory, it would seem she and Gerry McCann are in agreement that any work that purports a theory as opposed to false statements of fact is acceptable under freedom of speech. Pat Brown’s Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann opens up discussion of what happened to the McCann’s daughter, further stimulating interest in the case, and keeping Madeleine in the minds of the public. As the McCanns claim this is what they want, Pat Brown’s book is in accordance with this desire. In fact, it is the McCanns themselves who have clearly encouraged massive interest and speculation on this case. Pat Brown is in no way, therefore, infringing on any wish to keep talk about the case to a minimum.
By speaking and writing out quite often and in such a high profile manner, the McCanns have succeeded in making Madeleine McCann the most well-known missing child in modern history (since the Lindbergh baby in 1932). They have stimulated debate worldwide as to what happened to Madeleine. They have publicly purported their own theories; that someone took Madeleine because they wanted to raise a child, that she is being held captive in a sex ring, and that a pedophile had taken her. They have publicly disclosed many details of the case and repeatedly told their version of what occurred before, during, and after the disappearance of the daughter. They have discussed their emotions, behaviors, and opinions. Pat Brown is carrying on that discussion.

Utmost of importance in the entire matter, is the handling and funding of child abduction cases, the prevailing attitudes toward these crimes, and the future of catching child predators. Because the victims are so young and innocent, missing children are among the most publicized cases in the world. In the last three decades with the increase of the Internet and the 24-hour news cycle, awareness of child sex predators and stranger child abduction has radically increased fears of parents that their child will be taken and murdered. In reality, stranger abduction continues to be exceedingly rare for children of Madeleine’s age. Regardless, the paranoia that is engendered when a small child goes missing is a great stress to the community, the police, and resources. Therefore, it is extremely important that each and every case be properly analyzed and understood so that wrong ideas aren’t promulgated and funding and efforts are wasted investigating such crimes improperly. Each child that goes missing is a terrible tragedy for the parents, siblings, relative, friends, and community. Pat has great empathy for any family of a missing child and, most of all, compassion for the innocent young person who has suffered abuse, terror, sexual assault, and, possibly, an early death at the hands of others.

We are requesting that you respect Pat Brown’s right to free speech and to purport a theory as Gerry McCann has stated is not a problem for him. We request that the claim of libel be retracted for the Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann and the book permitted to be returned for sale at Amazon.

Anna-Karin von Schoultz – Ruotsin saamattomin syyttäjä

Jos Ruotsissa olisi Maan saamattomin syyttäjä-palkinto niin vahva ehdokas siihen olisi växjölainen syyttäjä Anna-Karin von Schoultz .

Anna-Karin von Schoultz tiedotustilaisuudessa (kuva Aftonbladet)

Jos tulee joku uusi rikostapaus Växjöstä jossa syytettä ajaa von Schoultz niin voi olla melkein varma, ettei odotettavissa on pitkä, sotkuinen ja tulokseton esitutkinta ja syyte jos se ylipäätään nostetaan, kaatuu oikeudessa.

Muutama esimerkki ihan viime päiviltä:

58 vuotias Irene Sveningsson-Agardh löytyi kuolleena kotoaan maaliskuun alussa Växjösta, naisen löysi hänen teini-ikäinen poika. Poliisin kuvaili tekoa ‘brutaaliksi.
Poliisi pidätti epäillyn muutaman tunnin kuluttua, joka oli uhrin 22 vuotias poika. Uhri, hänen äitinsä oli töissä Yliopistolla ja suosittu persoona, kertoo Expressen. Epäilyllä ei ollut rikostaustaa ja hän työskenteli nuoriso-ohjaajana. Epäilty päästettiin vapaaksi 3 kuukauden tutkintavankeuden jälkeen viime viikolla, sillä näyttöä syytteen nostamiseksi ei saatu, ilmoitti Von Schoultz.

Kenneth ‘Kenny’ Malmberg,s 1980, puukotettiin kuoliaaksi yksityisasunnossa Växjössä viime vuoden syyskuussa. Vahvistamattomien tietojen mukaan uhri oli tunnettu maahanmuutto-vastaisista mielipiteistä ja surmaa edelsi riita maahanmuuttajien kanssa. Tapauksella oli useita silminnäkijöitä. Kaksi eteläamerikkalaista epäiltyä pidätettiin josta toinen päästettiin vapaaksi.

31 vuotias Mauricio Olivera  sai syytteen murhasta ja hänet tuomittiin 12 vuodeksi vankilaan. Miehellä oli jo entuudestaan useita rikoksia tilillään. Sitten uutisoitiin että syytetyllä oli vankilassa matkapuhelin käytössä jolla hän lähetti tuhansia tekstiviestejä, mm jutun todistajille.

Asunnosta jossa surma tapahtui, löytyi surmaväline, (kuvassa) josta löytyi sekä uhrin että tekijän DNAta

Mies valitti käräjäoikeuden päätöksestä ja kaikki syytteet kaatuivat hovissa. Olivera ehti olla vapaalla jalalla kaksi viikkoa kun hänet pidätettiin epäiltynä pahoipitelystä ja ryöstöstä. Ironista kyllä kun hovi ilmoitti virallisesti vapauttavasta tuomiosta, niin mies istui tutkintavankeudessa jo uusista rikoksista. Tässäkin surmajutussa ajoi syytettä Anna-Karin von Schoultz.

Kyseisen syyttäjän saamattomuutta ja passiivisuutta on ihmetelty Eduskunnassa (Ruotsin Riksdagen) asti. Tuolloin rikoksen uhrin omaiset valittivat Eduskunnan oikeusasiamiehelle hitaasta,  7 kuukautta kestäneestä rikostutkinnasta jolloin myös omaisille ei annettu mitään tietoja. Silloin hän valitti valtavaa työtaakkaa ja henkilöstöpulaa. link

Levona Svenssonin tapauksen hän hoiti sentään kunniakkaasti loppuun, jolloin hän ylpeänä antoi useita haastatteluja medialle. ‘Mysteerin’ selvittämistä edesauttoi varmaan se että mielisairas tekijä heilutti veristä puukkoa julkisella paikalla – linja-autossa – useiden silminnäkijöiden edessä ja huusi että on tappanut jonkun. Svensson määrättiin hoitoon viime vuoden huhtikuussa tapahtuneesta kaksoismurhasta.

Tässä blogissa keskityn rikosaiheisiin juttuihin.

Tarinaa tulee varmaan sekä Suomesta että ulkomailta, tarkastelen  ajankohtaisia aiheita ja käsittelen eri maiden rikoshistoriaa.  Otan jossain määrin kantaa eri rikostapauksiin alan harrastajan näkökulmasta, sen verran mitä itse olen ehtinyt perehtyä kunkin tapaukseen, mikäli siihen on tarvetta. Usein kyseessä on tapauksen dokumentointi minulla olevan tiedon perusteella. Lakitekstiin en tule paljon viittamaan. Tervetuloa lukemaan ja kommenttoimaan, mikäli aihepiiri kiinnostaa
