    So, where can I find it?

    Good, fuck drug informants. They are one of the only forms of life lower than murderous drug cartels.

    Legalize freedom and it’s no longer an issue.

    Thank Odin it wasn’t Top Secret info released by some Federal Reserve insider that showed all the fraud and felonies committed by the world’s largest counterfeiting outfit!

    Kind of funny how hard drug dealers believe in their own mess and call it art. Pro musicians? So what. If Jimi Hendrix had avoided hard drugs and the mobsters who sold them, he would still be finding different waves to travel around this universe and the others. And Jimi was worth more than any drug. And could he surf! That sheriff should be fired.Then tried for reckless endangerment and jailed for a long time if proven guilty.

      ^This is the most schizophrenic post I’ve seen on BB for a while..

      What exactly are you trying to say? Hard drugs are bad, Jimi is awesome, Jimi could surf and he would surf around the world if it weren’t for mobsters?

      Anyway, isn’t there growing evidence that Jimi’s manager was somehow involved in his death in order to collect on insurance? Drugs may have been a method, but they weren’t the reason.

      Also, on topic, while I agree that most drug informants are scumbag motherfuckers, some of them are unfortunately blackmailed into being informants through pressure from the cops on minor or non-existent charges.

    The database didn’t *mistakenly* reveal its information. It wants to be free!

    Why did the Police Cartel have data on 200,000 people in a county that has only 150,000 residents???

    Yeah, if you want my opinion, the Sheriff should “no longer work there” either. Nor the rest of the department. As for the narcs, maybe they’ll get what’s coming to them for helping perpetrate the police’s brand of tyranny.

    Treason charges expected shortly?

    Well… hellllooooo… snitches….

    What a felonius database! It should be hunted down and deleted!

    Can’t we do something to the electrons?

    Whoever leaked this is a hero, just like Julian Assange!

  12. Church says:

    Maybe Assange should have claimed it was all an accidental release.

      So now you’re saying he suffers from premature ejaculation? When will the personal attacks stop!?

    A heroic mistake?

    Looks like someone needs to take an introductory course on computer security! The database was in a clear, plain-text file which is something it should never be stored as. The mistaken move to a non-secure server was just icing on the cake.

    The drooling incompetents managing this system will probably use the “careless worker” excuse. This was most famously used in the initial reports on the sinking of the Ocean Ranger oil rig. Zero dollars and zero cents were used to train the staff on this rig. People reported that their first day on the job consisted of showing up and waving goodbye to the previous shift leaving. The design of the rig included two buttons right next to each other: one flushed the loo and the other flushed a stabilising ballast tank. They were unlabelled. One day during a storm some careless worker pushed the wrong button and sank the rig. The typical management excuse for not actually doing any managing in these cases is to shrug and say “Well, what can be done? It was just an accident by a careless worker.”

      They’ve already blamed it on one particular person, who “no longer works for the department.”

    • Pantograph says:

      Time can never mend,
      A careless worker in your department.
      To the heart and mind,
      Ignorance is kind.
      There’s no comfort in the truth,
      All data will be mined.

      exactly! This is obviously a system set up by people (alpha-male spray-on-pants wearing types) with belief in their mental superiority and no tolerance for nerds who insist they’re doing it wrong, and as in all the great nerd come-uppance stories, their avoidance of nerds has caused them to screw the pooch, and probably their careers. w00t.

    Are the tech guys the same kind of people who leave their bank statements sitting lightly on top of the trash and then think someone is really trying to get them personally when something goes awry?

    Surely this is a much greater risk to the lives of American citizens than anything Wikileaks has released?

    Question 1 is: What is a sheriff doing with data on 200,000 individuals in a county with a 150,000 population?
