Brickbat: I Know Where You Live

Police officer with flowersVladgalenko / Dreamstime.comThe FBI is investigating former Bradenton, Fla., police officer Leonel Marines. Marines resigned from the force after an internal investigation found he was using police databases to find women to date. The investigation began after Marines followed a woman from a parking lot to her parents' home and tried to speak with her. It found he'd used databases to perform "several hundred" queries about women. Investigators interviewed nearly 150 women in the course of the inquiry.

    But remember, anybody who's concerned about private information in government databases is just paranoid. If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear, right?

    Is the worst part the misuse of databases, or that this cop wanted to date criminals?
