This move by anonymous has the very real potential to backfire on them, badly. Publishing a cop's home address most likely won't get the cop hurt. If attacking the cop was what someone was after, they know exactly where he'll be. He's a cop after all He has a very predictable and assigned area with times to expect him. However, someone who wouldn't have the guts to attack the cop directly might well go for a wife and/or kids.
I hope this doesn't end badly for the family of this Cop. If it does....Anonymous will have crossed a line with me and millions more like me. You don't put a bulls eye on the FAMILY of the person you want to target for something. That may sound old fashioned to some, and to be totally honest here, I grew up as the son of a Cop so my view is hardly without bias...but some lines have been respected by even the worst of organized crime. Why can't Anonymous show some class too? Oh well...

I'm all for protesting. I think it's a fundamental right. I don't believe that someone protesting should interfere with other people's rights.edit on 26-9-2011 by Domo1 because: (no reason given)

You try to find me, well, be prepared, because like they say......

the point is that his family and his wife need to make this low life behave with some decency . If they enjoy living of his violence then they too become part of his karma . thats how it works .
Any decent women would have pulled that man into line by now and taught him how to behave respectfully or else left him .
Thats is what a good woman would have done

I do not exactly agree with releasing the details about his family. However, whenever injustice can be exposed I think we should do whatever it takes to expose the guilty individuals. That is the only way to make change happen,

i'm not whining about it because i have some big nest egg at risk. i'm a middle to lower class old woman. i agree that they should be able to protest and so does domo1. THE PROBLEM IS they are attacking his family, by releasing his private info, now just any nutcase can show up at his house and get revenge on anything any cop in the history of the freakin' planet, has done. people are not thinking clearly about this. they're blaming entire races, whether you actually have anything of value, your religion, your gender, your appearance, where you work, your job title, etc. it's out of control!
WHAT "private" info ???
by releasing his private info
