Austrian Police Face Sound of Music

Austria's Justice Minister Maria Berger has accused the nation's police force of gullibility
and gauranteed them a natural place on this blog. In fact I might just research a Gullible Hall of Fame as a result.

In doing so they provide a classic case study the key characteristics of which include:

Taking things at face value
Failing to ask probing questions
Failing to obtain evidence or proof
Being suckered by confident story telling
Failing to cross reference stories
Failing to notice unlikley coincidences

I reckon Columbo would have sussed the Austrian Noodle straightaway. Any offers on what his classic line might have been just as seemed to be leaving?

"Can I just check? did I hear you say sect or sex?"
