If I were to do it for real I'd probably set up an internet connection in
an assumed name complete with a fake bank account so there'd be no one for
the cops to berate, just the computer [with no logs] to kick.

Not leaving log files is not that easy. And it becomes harder when
someone can get physical access to install all sorts of nifty add-ons.

Also, note that log files are only useful if the police arrive with a
search warrant or something along those lines - the ISP will just
terminate the account, keep the money, and tell your friend to f**k off.
It would be difficult to do something about this, especially since the
ISP is likely able to wave around some logs of their own.

Come to think of it, that's one more log file that will be difficult to
clear. Whether or not it is made at all depends on the ISP, and mostly
on the domestic laws whereever you live.
