I Assume Revealing jpgs Are Still Allowed

Declan McCullagh of Wired News and the Politech mailing list alerts us that some unconstitutional chicanery is going on in the Northwest. The State of Washington's legislature has decided to outlaw posting the personal information (address, phone number, social security number) of law enforcement officers online. You can still post any other Washingtonian's personal information, but cops are a protected species. They already get to tear up their speeding tickets, now this?

For residents or those planning trips to the Evergreen State, you'll need the right apparel to comply with the spirit if the law.
