    Sensitive documents found in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade confetti

    ...Most shocking was that on the scraps of paper were pieces of sensitive information, including the names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, banking data, and other personal information about Nassau county police officers and detectives, some of whom are believed to be undercover, according to CNN affiliate WPIX, whom Finkelstein contacted along with the police after finding the pieces of sensitive material on Thursday.

    Also found were notes about Mitt Romney's motorcade from the final presidential debate, which took place at Hofstra University in Nassau County in October....

    Hmm, the link is dead for me.

    NVM, it has now appeared after saying it couldn't be found. Guess the article is a better kept secret than the papers were.

    But, seriously...yeah, they did a crappy job shredding. That said, I don't know that it's really an issue to get too wound up about. How many of the shredded document confetti has be reconstructed?

    I think yep, definitely the city should re-evaluate their document shredding contractor.
