Delhi, Dec 18, 2016: A very amusing incidence of the policemen of New York, USA getting fooled by a life-like mannequin happened on Friday. The police received a worrisome call which reported, a woman “frozen to death” trapped in a parked car in the city of Hudson.

Police reached the location in a short time where they found a woman sitting in the car, motionless. They saw a seat-belted figure wearing an oxygen mask sitting motionless in the passenger seat, mentioned PTI report.

Police reported that the car was covered in snow, suggesting it had been left overnight in temperatures of about -13C. They tracked down the owner of the car, who very vulgarly complained about the police action and claimed that he used the mannequin as a medical training aid.

The police chief, L Edward Moore said,” The mannequin was extremely realistic, with real clothing, glasses, shoes, teeth and skin blemishes. It was even wearing a seat belt… It is my understanding that the owner was incredulous that we took action in this matter. The mannequin and car owner apparently was quite vocal and vulgar to my sergeant.”

Moore also shared a message for all the “mannequin” owners saying,” Just to clear the record, all citizens of Hudson should be put on notice that if you park your locked vehicle on the street on a sub-zero night with a life-size realistic mannequin seated in it… we will break your window.”

New Australia bill gives police power to spy on WhatsApp messages.

Australia is mulling a strict law that gives enforcement agencies power to track messages on platforms like WhatsApp and Telegram that offer end-to-end encryption and also to force users to open their smartphones when demanded, a media report said.

The controversial encryption bill comes at a time amid allegations of encrypted platforms facilitating spread of rumours, hate speech and even criminal activities like child trafficking and drugs businesses.

In countries like India messages circulated in WhatsApp have been linked to several lynching cases, forcing the government to ask platform to take suitable preventive action.

But the new Australia bill also raises privacy concerns as under the proposed legislation, the Australian government agencies could compel companies to build spyware.

The proposed laws could force companies to remove electronic protections, assist government agencies in accessing material from a suspect’s device, and in getting technical information such as design specifications to help in an investigation, News.com.au reported on Wednesday.

Critics have slammed the bill for being broad in scope, vague and potentially damaging to the security of the global digital economy, the report said, adding that a Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security has been scrutinising the bill.

The laws will help security agencies nab terrorists, child sex offenders and other serious criminals, Australia’s Attorney-General Christian Porter was quoted as saying.
