The technology in the digital world is expanding things out so much.
Accidentally every single -- and every day.
Cops and police departments and law enforcement agencies.

The bombing in Boston about their -- -- and putting people's names out there that had nothing to do with the bombing.
How did they get their reputation back when they didn't want to deal with it and it didn't know they can't think -- it had reported staked out from the house.
How -- they get that back so it's runways is very helpful.
And I don't want to minimize that.
But in other ways it can be very damaging to so with reputation and career.
And you know it is.
Cases dismissed what -- found not guilty how -- they get that back.
