NYPD Visit Elderly Couple – Again

Here is a real world example of why you DON’T use real data in testing.  Embarrassed cops on Thursday cited a “computer glitch” as the reason police targeted the home of an elderly, law-abiding couple more than 50 times in futile hunts for bad guys.  Apparently, the address of Walter and Rose Martin’s Brooklyn home was used to test a department-wide computer system in 2002.  What followed was years of cops appearing at the Martins’ door looking for murderers, robbers and rapists – as often as three times a week.
