The Government Can Do No Wrong

Boxes of files from the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, containing personal medical information, are found dumped in a random trash bin, on a random street. No charges are filed because the police do not believe anyone had access to the information other than the person who found the records and called authorities.

Good to know that if I decide to follow the government's lead and discard some patient records in a trash bin on the street I, too, will be given the benefit of the doubt and be absolved of any responsibility.

So I'm off to breach patient confidentiality and suffer no consequences for it.
