Target tagets crooks

An article on the front page of today’s Washington Post reports on targets role in assisting law enforcement.
“One of the nation’s top forensics labs is located at Target’s headquarters building in downtown Minneapolis,” said FBI Special Agent Paul McCabe, who has worked with Target. “They have abilities and technology that far surpasses many law enforcement agencies in the country.”
I was kind of surprised to hear in this story that they succeeded in recovering a damaged video tape where NASA had not. Its not clear if NASA just declined the police request or were unsuccessful. I recall a few years ago NASA was the place to go for restoring damaged surveillance video. The C-Stores often dont rotate the tapes in their surveillance machines. The tape degrades to the point of not being usable. Hopefully more will use digital video recorders.
