The ever-so-controversial site:

Apparently a Florida guy got arrested for publishing an officer's name & address when the site first launched. Their was some law the cops used to their advantage apparently.


I assume the site made some changes after that incident. These sites are always going to stir up a hornets nest. Same thing happened with the ratemyprofessor site.

think its only fair and right.
police officers used to walk beats and be known by the community.
so there was a relationship.
once police become completely faceless and nameless you run the risk of granting immunity for their acts cause they are more like robots than humans.

maybe if they are viewed as people by the public they will feel less inclined to pull foul shit.
