Brave New World redux

And, in the ever-encroaching strangle hold of a real-life Brave New World:
A man has been held in prison for seven months after failing to decrypt two hard drives that investigators suspect contain indecent images of children.
A court order says the man will remain jailed "until such time that he fully complies" with an order to unlock the password-protected devices.
The US man, who has not been charged with possessing illegal images, is appealing against his detention.
If I've got this right, authorities expect the man to hand over the evidence they suspect would warrant a jail term while all the time holding him in jail for not handing it over.

Talk about Kafka-esque.

Unspeakably corrupt.

Welcome to the Third World country of America.
