Cop Website

A website is up and running where you can rate police officers.
A website has been formed where the members of the community can rate the performance of police officers. Police officers in California are already talking about having legislation passed so that this website can be taken down. They say that they are worried addresses, marital status, kids will be exposed. Which is total bullshit of course. The fuckers can't stand losing control of their mistakes. The site covers the entire nation including PPD and a few others.

WTVQ-TV/DT - Action News 36
(Kentucky)

Kentucky Representative Tim Couch filed a bill this week to make anonymous posting online illegal.

The bill would require anyone who contributes to a website to register their real name, address and e-mail address with that site.

Their full name would be used anytime a comment is posted.

If the bill becomes law, the website operator would have to pay if someone was allowed to post anonymously on their site. The fine would be five-hundred dollars for a first offense and one-thousand dollars for each offense after that.

Apparently, one can easily set up a website registered with a FOREIGN TLD (Top Level Domain) code domain name (say, "niftyname.be," out of Belgium). IMPORTANT: the politics of the nation bearing your TLD domain is most important; you do not want a United Kingdom (.uk) TLD! Here is one European registrar which also does hosting (they take Euros, thank you):

Europe Registry (Also does hosting) registers foreign TLD (Top Level Domain) code domain names.
