Hacker Group Attacks Texas Cops' E-mail
September 02, 2011
The group known as Anonymous claims to have hacked into the email accounts of more than two dozen Texas law enforcement agencies or officials in retaliation for arrests of its supporters and what it sees as harassment of immigrants by authorities in the state, the Associated Press is reporting.
The group appeared to briefly take over the website of the Texas Police Chiefs Association on Thursday, replacing its home page with one that listed police departments and officials whose email accounts Anonymous said had been hacked. The group posted a statement on the police website saying it was "attacking Texas law enforcement" because of arrests of its supporters and what the group sees as harassment of immigrants by authorities in the state.

Sounds like this group just made it personal.

Never ceases to amaze me that people do the wrong thing, then get angry when police come after them. Let's spell "accountability" shall we folks? Mama didn't raise you right.
