"Exaggerated claims of jeopardized systems. The city's legal
justification for the arrest was the fact that Childs refused to
give the passwords to DTIS officials, which effectively locked them
out of administering their own network. But in the press reports
that soon surfaced, statements ascribed to city officials made it
appear that some or all of the data on the network was in jeopardy,
including e-mail, 311 service (the one-stop phone number for
residents to get help on city services), and law-enforcement
applications. But these services do not appear to have ever been
jeopardized. And Childs' influence over this network did not appear
to extend to these services, only to the network itself."
