80,000 Cops' Social Security, Payroll Info Stolen
As if they didn't have enough trouble with the alleged rapist cop and the Jesus freak cop, now the NYPD has to deal with an apparently massive identity theft. Their pension fund director of communications, Anthony Bonelli, has been charged with stealing tapes containing the social security and direct deposit information of 80,000 active and retired officers. Letters have gone out warning the officers to be on the lookout for related attacks on their bank accounts and credit. If this is too depressing, go read the story of the cute karate cop twins representing the force at the World Police and Fire Games in Vancouver.
