    People keep blaming this on bad design, but I sincerely doubt a designer was anywhere near the project. Government contracts go to the lowest bidder and, among those crowds, designers are seen as a needless expense.

    What we're seeing is a database vomiting onto a screen without a single thought given to the UI. In the second tweet this becomes apparent because their solution "to prevent further mistakes" was to add a false alarm link.
