I'm all for technology and find criminal justice and find forensics very
interesting, but a public company that specializes in the reconstruction of
shredded documents does not seem like a good idea to me.  Seems like a
Pandora's box that should not have been opened, even with the potential good
it can serve for law enforcement and the fact that they offer "instruction"
on shredding services.
