Lashing out against the “racial profiling anti-immigrant police state that is Arizona”, LulzSec has released their newest data dump: “hundreds of private intelligence bulletins, training manuals, personal email correspondence, names, phone numbers, addresses and passwords belonging to Arizona law enforcement”.
The release, entitled “Chinga La Migra” (Fuck the Border Police) is the first time LulzSec’s purported to release personal information of government agents, rather than just disrupting their websites (see: CIA, US Senate). This is a powerful move. Home addresses are home addresses – about as personal as personal data gets. LulzSec’s also clearly placed a political motive behind this thrust, as opposed to the HACK HACK LMAO ethos we’ve seen before.
And LulzSec says this is just the start:
Every week we plan on releasing more classified documents and embarassing [sic]personal details of military and law enforcement in an effort not just to reveal
their racist and corrupt nature but to purposefully sabotage their efforts to terrorize communities fighting an unjust “war on drugs”.
A politically radicalised LulzSec is a big step away from the crew that was pissed off about video games. [LulzSecurity]
