titwrench: I once prank called Richard Nixon on accident.


Was it, "I'm scared, Mr President. I'm scared of the Space Man"?

So what harm was caused to require those damages? Oh... it's codified in 18 USC § 2724. Damn. You lawyers get us coming & going. I don't know how you summarize the actions of the state, and then separately count the separate actions of individuals as "226 look-ups".

KrispyKritter: Dwangerous: What a bunch of farking d-bags, these frat boy biatches probably had a running pool to see who could nail her. These cops can't even be trusted to respect the privacy their own how the hell can they be trusted to protect a citizen. Every one these guys should at the very least be held personally responsible for the financial hit the state will take on behalf of their action

No I'm not "white knighting" her, I just look for any excuse to remind people that most cops are nothing more than a gang with cool cars and weapons, the only difference being the spiffy matching uniforms.

but you're right. the dicks who did the deeds should be paying the fine. somehow i get the feeling the money will be coming from tax payers who did nothing to deserve the screwing they are getting. proving once again, if you can get over that whole "wow am I a dickhead" thing, it's great to be a cop.

This is SO true. Let the stupid farks that did the deed pay the fine...

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Isn't this like 6 mos old?



No. She may be a babe, but I'd put her around 40.

Rreal: while that dollar amount sounds alarmingly high, if you read the article, they were abusing the police database, looking up her picture for non-police related duties.

That shiat -is- frowned upon, and is quite illegal.


Would it make more sense to fire the people responsible?

(Instead of ripping off the taxpayer. Again. Which doesn't hurt anybody involved in the crime...)

snuff3r: Wow, that seems a little excessive.

And by a little i mean a farking lot.


Apparently it's not high enough.

FTFA:
Discipline for the perpetrators has been light in most cases or non-existent.

If nobody's learned anything from it and business goes on as usual, there need to be punitive payments too.

Wait until the system being abused by a horny LEO is not a drivers license database but an app that gives access to aerial surveillance photos from satellites and drones. That kind of scenario could spark some public outrage. Come on, you NSA whistle blowers!

headline: If a cop looks up your driver's license record without a good reason you could win a million dollars. Well, you couldn't, but she did

Pronoun fail...makes it sound as if a) a female cop got a 1m reward for looking at a civilian's DMV record and b) submitter thought that the civilian should have gotten the reward instead.

Also, she went through a lot more than just having her photo looked at.

* "should have gotten the reward instead" = "should have gotten that money as compensation instead."
