Anonymous Threatens Cincinnati Police

“Hacktivist” group says it will release names, addresses and phone numbers of police officers and their families in response to recent officer-involved shooting.  WLWT’s John London reports.

(WLWT)  The hacking group Anonymous Anon Verdict released a video Sunday targeting the Cincinnati Police Department.

In a YouTube video over the weekend, Anonymous warned it would data dump as many officers as it sees fit, meaning it would release their names, addresses, phone numbers and family members.

In the video, someone wearing a mask discusses the group’s anger over the department’s handling of a deadly officer-involved shooting.

The group then posted online personal information about more than 50 Cincinnati police officers, including Police Chief Eliot Isaac. As of 4:30 a.m. Monday, the information had been taken down.

“When their addresses are put out in the public, that’s a concern. I know that we have a section working on that to try to knock down whenever our addresses are put out in a public place like that and that’s what the police administration is doing about this,” Fraternal Order of Police president Sgt. Dan Hils said.
