#AntiSec/Anonymous claims to have compromised 77 law enforcement-related web sites and acquired personal information of 7,000 officers

The Hacker News reports that #AntiSec has attacked 77 law enforcement-related web sites.  According to a statement posted yesterday on Pastebin by AnonymousIRC:

Time for us to conduct a raid of our own.

In retaliation to the unjust persecution of dozens of suspected Anonymous “members”, we attacked over 70 US law enforcement institutions defacing their websites and destroying their servers. Additionally, we have stolen massive amounts of confidential documents and personal information including email spools, password dumps, classified documents, internal training files, informant lists, and more to be released very soon. We demand prosecuters immediately drop all charges and investigations against all “Anonymous” defendants.

The 10GB of private law enforcement data contains:
* The mail spools of police officers from dozens of different PDs
* Usernames, passwords, social security numbers, home addresses and phone numbers to over 7000 officers
* A list of hundreds of snitches who made “anonymous” crime tips to the police
* Hundreds of internal police academy training files

The leaked data also contained jail inmate databases and active warrant information but we are we redacting the name/address info to demonstrate how those facing the gun of the criminal injustice system are our comrades and not our adversaries. On the other hand, we will be making public name and contact information about informants who had the false impression that they would be able to “anonymously” snitch in secrecy.

To law enforcement: your bogus trumped-up charges against the Anonymous paypal LOIC attacks will not stick, nor will your intimidation tactics stop us from exposing your corruption. While many of the recent “Anonymous” arrestees are completely innocent, there is no such thing as an innocent cop, and we will act accordingly.

To our hacker comrades: now is the time to unite and fight back against our common oppressors. Escalate attacks against goverment, corporate, law enforcement and military targets: destroy their systems and leak their private data.

In our fight for a world free from police, prisons and politicians, we will continue to expose their corruption and destroy their systems. Remember there are more of us than there are of them, and they can never stop us all.

Solidarity means Attack!
