9. such as?

So what sort of proof, exactly, would you expect to see?

A signed confession?

Many years ago I was aquuainted in passing with a drug dealing outfit.

Guys now established as respected Irish Republican politicians were involved. That's where the cash came from to run the IRA in the 70s, but on the whole it was just kids out to stretch their experience to its limits. There were characters around who would drop 100 tabs of acid just for the hell of it, to impress their friends, which is pretty much the picture I get of the Atta gang, thrill seekers living for the moment, indulging whatever whim as and when it arose.

Some of those I knew were eventually busted, but only on a circumstantial conspiracy charge.

Everything, and I mean EVERTHING was done by word of mouth, on trust. Telephone calls used coded language. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING was ever written down and no more than a small quantity of incriminating substances were ever kept on one place.

So if somebody were to tell me that some really hard evidence did turn up, that's when I'd have doubts about it.
