Lulzsec and SB 1070

How far is too far?

I am all for destroying the undeniably racist Arizona SB 1070 bill, which requires all immigrants in the state of Arizona to carry their registration papers with them at all times. This bill has been under fire since its inception in April of last year, and has been covered by media from the ultra-credible to the lowliest blog.

This, however, might be taking it too far:

“We are releasing hundreds of private intelligence bulletins, training manuals, personal email correspondence, names, phone numbers, addresses and passwords belonging to Arizona law enforcement. We are targeting AZDPS specifically because we are against SB1070 and the racial profiling anti-immigrant police state that is Arizona.”

The hacker group Lulzsec has been taking some big action recently, against big business and even the CIA website. They claim that they’re just doing it for the lulz. For the most part, I’ve been laughing along with them. But when the contact info of hundreds of private citizens is released on the Internet…

They’re not discriminating in their attacks anymore – they’re taking on everyone – governments to innocent individuals. It might be time to stop laughing, and start tightening some Internet security.
