I think his question is not only good, it is necessary and important to
ask. Especially when it comes to laws. Or if you want a more visible
example just look at all the misinterpretation of "laws" in religions.

And furthermore you don't need to assume a conspiracy or corruptness.
People make mistakes.
People are willing to bypass the law because they think they serve a
greater good "in this one special case".
People don't think about the greater consequences of their actions.
People are ambitious.
People are stupid.
People ...

But anyhow, how about you choose your password to be a confession about
a crime you committed. Would this be enough testimonial value? :)
