What you don't know about technology can cost you your job. Northern California police officers placed on leave after sending degrading, violent texts
Two police officers in the Northern California town of Eureka have been placed on paid administrative leave while a third-party investigator conducts its review of demeaning and violent messages sent in a private texting group.
Okay, "private texting group" is an oxymoron. But that is a topic for another post.
If you're interested in the details, click thru. Nothing is too surprising, except for the fact that they were stupid enough to attach their names to the insanity via text messages. My guess, regular SMS and MMS messages, which are the very definition of "not secure." I'm sure if they were using Telegram or WhatsApp or something even a little better, that would have been noted. Well, reasonably sure. Reporters know squat about technology, but they do know popular apps.
