IDG News Service - The Anonymous hacking group has taken another swipe at police in Arizona, launching online attacks against several police union websites and publishing e-mail messages stolen from law enforcement officers.

Regional sites belonging to the Fraternal Order of Police were defaced Thursday night and many of them remained offline Friday. Anonymous took credit for the attacks, saying it was continuing its assault in protest of the state's tough anti-immigration laws.

Anonymous said it had defaced eight Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) websites and was releasing a list of more than 1,200 police usernames, passwords and e-mail addresses. It encouraged other hackers to search through "everybody's inbox to retrieve and expose their secrets," it said in a statement.

It also published personal e-mail messages of several FOP members containing passwords, credit card numbers and, in some cases, anti-immigrant chain e-mail messages.

Representatives from the affected Fraternal Order of Police organizations did not reply to messages seeking comment Friday.

Anonymous, along with another now-disbanded hacking group, LulzSec, has been running an ongoing "Antisec" attack against government, law enforcement and corporations for weeks now. In two separate incidents, it has previously released e-mail messages belonging to the Arizona Department of Public Safety and other police data.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety has called the hackers a "cyber terrorism group."

Do you actually know that AZ officers are racially profiling? Or is that just what you THINK to be the case. ANYIME ever, I have been pulled over in AZ, CA, NV or OREGON, the cop gets to the window and asks for License, Proof of insurance and regisistration. What do they ask you? Guess what happens in CA if you don't have one of those three things, your vehicle is TOW'd. You are also assuming that AZ cops are all Euro-American when in fact they are pretty diversified. Cops in general, need to be watched to keep the would bes clean but for the most part, that stereotype don't fly. and no, I ain't a cop and never was.

I'm sure that on an individual basis that bias still exists.
