Mick Keelty and Wikipedia

I would like to point you to this story about Australian Federal Police Chief Mick Keelty, whose Wikipedia entry was…err…modified a couple of days back. I’ve reproduced a bit of it below. It made me laugh because it was just so stupid and immature and loco… just how I like my funny stuff. Enjoy:

Cyber bandit sabotages top cop

Wikipedia has been forced to lock its profile page on Australian Federal Police chief Mick Keelty after a cyber vandal portrayed him as a deranged conspiracy theorist.

The nonsensical rewrite appeared on the popular online encyclopedia on Tuesday morning but was quickly removed after The Sun-Herald alerted AFP staff that afternoon.

The unidentified hacker mockingly quoted Mr Keelty warning: “The Americans should stop looking for Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan. I have particularly sensitive intelligence from aliens – he’s living in an outside dunny in Dubbo.

“At this time he is training terrorist pixies and raising an airforce of stealth budgies to strike at the heart of the infidels, Allahu Akbar.”

The top cop’s often quoted contentious remarks about airport baggage handlers during the Schapelle Corby drug smuggling case were amended to include: “I have very little intelligence. I’m a little teapot.”

And under the heading Crime of the Future he was recorded saying: “One day there will be a man with a black outfit and a really fast black car and he will be called Batman.”
