Hackers Unearth FBI Report on ‘KopBusters’ Filmmaker Barry Cooper

Computer hackers with the group ‘Lulz Security” have unearthed a Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) intelligence assessment of Barry Cooper, the former Texas narcotics officer who turned against the drug war and began setting up hidden camera stunts looking to catch corrupt police in the act.

The document, composed in Feb. 2009 by the FBI field office in El Paso, Texas, came just one month before officers in Williamson County, Texas staged a SWAT raid on his home over a Class B misdemeanor, filed after a series of stunts seeking to catch police stealing money from official evidence.

The FBI’s “Situational Intelligence Report” on Cooper is marked “unclassified,” and recipients were specifically instructed to take “precautions” to prevent it from falling into the media’s hands. It came to light after hackers stole a trove of documents from police in Arizona and published them online in an operation they called “Chinga La Migra” (or “Fuck the Border Patrol”).

    I wonder what would happen if someone printed, filled out, and sent in that customer quality survey… :)

    WoW!! First, Barry C.( an X-narc cop) joins the cause..then, the very lawyer that put Marc Emery behind bars see’s the light(to some degree at least)and has changed his stance. And, now hackers are helping too. I must say the movement has developed some great allies over the past decade. People like Marc Emery, Mason Tvert, and Ethan Nadelmann are showing people that it only makes sense to legalize. And they are doing it with informed opinions based in science. When I was a teenager in ’95 none of this was going on yet. But, since 2000 I’ve seen 16 states legalize medical use( it’s a start), politicians like Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, Jessica Corey, and Barney Frank are willing to be open-minded and reasonable, a lil’ college called Oaksterdam has been founded, Denver succeeded in voting to legalize posession of an OZ. within city limits, 4:20 Cannabis celebrations at Central Square in Keene, NH. And who could forget when Mr. Phelps showed us the preferred way to relax after winning 8 straight gold, yes indeedy. If trends like these continue to grow( I think they will..)it won’t be too long before Prohibition’s work-visa becomes out-dated……
