    Chicago Police Department website appears hacked (NATO protest photos added)

    The website for the Chicago Police Department is down today, the apparent victim of hackers who may have timed the hit in conjunction with the first day of the NATO Summit.

    I’m heading for the protests, and hopefully will have photos and a report later.

    Updates by WAJ — appears website back up and working.

    CHANGE OF PLAN — PHOTOS AND PHOTO UPDATES MOVED TO NEW POST, Chicago NATO protest photos.

    Excellent. I’m always up for a good Zombie-esque photo report.

    Remember all those legal observers at Tea Party protests? Yeah me neither. Totally crazy we didn’t have a team of lawyers handy given how violent we all were.

    Good for you, Anne! You are a better woman than I, we live a half hour from the city. We left Dodge for the week, I wanted nothing to do with Chicago during NATO. Stay safe!

    I thin we should all agree right here and now to stop calling simple DDoS attacks “hacks” it gives the /b/tards over at 4chan (and the rest of the Anon. Crowd) to much credit.
    Anyone can download the LOIC now and takedown a website. It’s the interwebs equivalent of TPing a house.
