Anonymous Leaks Personal Data of LAPD Brass

December 08, 2011  | 

A hacker group affiliated with Anonymous has claimed responsibility for posting the personal information of more than 40 members of the Los Angeles Police Department's command staff. A member of the group said in a chat with local radio station KPCC Wednesday evening it put the information up because of the LAPD's "violent oppression" in clearing the Occupy LA encampment. Police said Thursday the majority of the officers listed were not involved in the Occupy LA clearing operation and some were retired.

The hacker group @CabinCr3w sent out a Twitter message Dec. 5 that police said provided information on officers' backgrounds, home addresses, campaign contributions, property records, and in some cases, the names of family members, including children.

Police initially said the list included 25 members of the LAPD, but a review by KPCC showed that 44 officers had information posted on them that ranged from minimal information such as an email address or their rank, to more personal details including family members' names, a person's online resume, home values, and phone number.

As bad as what Anonymous has done, naughty Anonymous, not one of the 40 officers were mentioned. The days of blaming the Street Cop is ending but putting the command staff on check. Heck, maybe that beef you have in your jacket may no longer hold you back on your promotion...bad Anonymous for supporting the men and women of law enforcement.

Tim, you don't even make sense.

TimFromLA @ 12/9/2011 2:13 PM

Blue Line, either you're not a cop or if you are, management. And if you are management, you can't use a beef from a copper's jacket to deny a promotion. No more blackmailing coppers anymore.

THe term is blame, not responsibility.

you know I used to post positive things about the LAPD because I sympathized with them. But one night a year ago, my elderly mother got agitated and accidentally injured and even thought I was actually the more severely injured party, I was arrested and humiliated by two men on the LAPD My exhusband then used the LAPD to file false reports about me. You humiliated me for being divorced and female. I think I am going to sue you.
