I'm not sure this is actually true. The Law generally recognizes 'accident'
as a means for relieving people of responsibility for criminal acts -- it
can't *be* a criminal act without scienter on the part of the doer.
In this case, the doer was negligent, rather than purposefully malicious,
but we have solutions for that as well.
I hope that we don't see a class-action lawsuit against the feds... I wanna
see them have to defend each case individually.
