TAKING ADVANTAGE OF OPEN WIFI: Feds: Child porn accessed via neighbors, church.

Special agents said Chandler was able to access the Internet from more than 30 locations, including one belonging to the Higher Ground Baptist Church.

“Chandler’s residence … is uniquely positioned such that numerous wireless networks from adjacent streets appear to be accessible,” according to the warrant.

You know, maintaining open wifi is kind of neighborly, but the problem is that you don’t always have such great neighbors. Meanwhile, give the law-enforcement folks credit for not going off half-cocked with a mistaken SWAT raid, as happened in Buffalo, New York.
