Bear in mind that he didn't just merely look around.  What he did would
be analogous to driving by and seeing a car accident then stopping to
poke around w/ the brake lines and such.  Maybe he was just curious, but
it was a crime scene he was contaminating and he is a lead that *has* to
be followed up on.  My brother spoke to the kid immediately afterwards
and he admitted that it was pretty dumb of him.

        I hate analogies like this.  It is inapplicable.  You cannot
compare port scanning to walking in a person's house and walking around,
this is not much different.

        Times are changing.  This is the electronic world.  No need to
compare to obsolete situations.
