On late friday, Anonymous posted a notice on Pastebin claiming that it had leaked more information by hacking into websites such as the International Chiefs of Police, the Boston Police Patrolmens’ Association, and the law enforcement agencies in Alabama’s Birmingham and Jefferson Counties. This post from late friday was deleted off of Pastebin, though a different one appeared on saturday.
Saturday was the opening of the opening conference of The International Association of Chiefs of Police. The leaked information includes internal documents, membership rosters, Social Security Numbers, addresses, passwords, and other personal data.
Anonymous says that though the IACP conference was saturday, that day is also going to be the start of the Day of Action Against Police Brutality. Though Anonymous had done the same thing, with the release of data pertaining to the Arizona Department of Public Safety in June, they are continuing to leak sensitive data of other police and public safety organizations stating that they had little concern for the safety of those whose information it had made available with the most recent leak.Anonymouse state, this being their reasoning, that they had no problem targeting police and releasing their information even if it puts them at risk because they wanted them to experience just a taste of the brutality and misery they serve them on an everyday basis.
This latest action was also meant to show support for those arrested and charged with being members of the collective. Anonymous claims that they are conducting peaceful protests. Now is this really how it is going to last, or could this information that was leaked lead to something else happening which could end up in future bigger problems down the way. If these hacker groups keep posting this private information on the internet for the world to see, what could happen if a real criminal got a hold of this information at used it to get revenge on a law enforcement officer or other things like that. How far is this going to go?
