Stories by Kim Bui
A hacker group affiliated with Anonymous has claimed responsibility for posting the personal information of more than 40 members of the Los Angeles Police Department's command staff. A member of the group said in a chat with KPCC Wednesday evening it put the information up because of the LAPD's "violent oppression" in clearing the Occupy LA encampment. Police said Thursday the majority of the officers listed were not involved in the Occupy LA clearing operation and some were retired.
