Hackers Target AZ Police Over Immigration Law

TUCSON - Hacking group Lulz Security (LulzSec) has intruded into the police files in Arizona and exposed important documents, calling their deed a protest against the state law.

Hispanic News, Latino News, Mexican News, Minority News, Civil Rights, Discrimination, Racism, Diversity, Latina, Racial Equality, Bias, EqualityLulz Security hacked into Arizona Department of Public Safety’s computers and posted a cache of files labelled as training manuals, emails and intelligence documents.

"We are targeting AZDPS specifically because we are against SB1070 law and the racial profiling anti-immigrant police state that is Arizona," LulzSec said in a press release. "Hackers of the world are uniting and taking direct action against our common oppressors: the government, corporations, police, and militaries of the world."

Spokesman Steve Harrison of the Arizona agency said the documents appeared to be authentic and said LulzSec most likely accessed them via the email accounts of eight officers.

"Our IT people are looking at this, trying to determine how this breach was made and how to stop it," Harrison said.

LulzSec taunted Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio on his official account, by saying, "Media? Heat? You?" The tweet also included an expletive in Spanish aimed at the Border Patrol.

LulzSec said in a statement posted on their website: "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 group also said that every week it would release information to embarrass military and law enforcement officials "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. "
