NCSC-FI is totally different organization than police. They are just
listing malware detections and automatically sending this feed to ISPs.

Tor exit is not real malware machine so detection is false. I
contacted them and they agreed that exit nodes should be labeled
somehow to prevent false malware detections.

exonerator.torproject.org is very useful service for crime
investigation. I went to talk The National Bureau of Investigation and
they told me that this tool is indeed useful for them.

These organizations have publicly stated that they are neutral towards
any general purpose technology like Tor and recognize that Tor is useful.
