Case thrown out due to it hogging storage space
Alright, I'm not sure how reliable this story is, but if true, it's jaw-dropping.
"The federal government has more than 400,000 pages of evidence against fugitive Miami doctor Armando Angulo, taking up some two terabytes of digital space. On the surface, it sounds like a pretty solid case. But at the urging of prosecutors, charges were dropped against the doctor because the evidence is simply taking up too much space on government servers."
/me looks around at the 20TB of storage in his room. Gloats at being better-off than the government.

Sorry for the double post, but an addendum: After you get over the outrage you feel from the article, you can recover your balance by reading the comments after the article. Some of them are hilarious but very insightful and profound.
