Barrett says the prosecution doesn't have its shirt on blopper- blo99er, and that he knows the evidence against him won't cut it. As the prosecution's case is never exculpatory, he seems to be saying that if his adversaries knew what he knows about it, they could make a better case. Brown and his rhetoric are a caution!

The government fears hackers, they like to keep secrets. They'll lock up good people for up to 100 years, i mean living in a country where you can commit a crime and spend the rest of your life in jail. Not to mention you don't even have to kill anyone.
