In New Jersey,
two deejays noted postings on a password-protected website indicating
that the state police may be planning a "ticket blitz" because they’re
upset about the way the media has been treating the state trooper who
crashed while driving Gov. John Corzine. According to media reports,
the trooper was traveling in excess of 90 mph, and apparently checking
his Blackberry at the time of the accident. When the deejays read the
anonymous posts on-air, the head of the police union responded by
broadcasting one of the deejays home address and license plate on the
local news. He says posting word of the ticket blitz threatened police
safety, because it would cause motorists to question the legitimacy of
their tickets. Much more here.
