We need to address this situation before technology advances any further. Personal data is everywhere and it is becoming increasingly more difficult to protect it and still allow law enforcement, healthcare workers and many other the access they require to meet our needs. A huge task.
Apparently State workers don't have enough to do in their jobs if they can be "browsing" personal data websites. Maybe we should fire a few thousand and the others could then fill their time more wisely doing what the others were SUPPOSED to be doing in the first place..., they obviously have to much time on their hands...
Smells a bit fishy. Couldn't tell if the person was fired or not? Really? Couldn't or wouldn't? If you couldn't tell, it sounds like they are incapable. If they wouldn't tell, are they hiding something? Also, what data risks are the people open to?
I don't understand someone wanting to look up another person's drivers license, what is one there of much interest? Height, weight and address?
One of the reasons is the photo. Not enough excitement on the job apparently. Hundreds of cops have done this to a single individual...some of them many, many times. None have been prosecuted. I don't believe any have even been fired...police unions...cough, cough. Nearly a million dollars in settlements have been paid out in just one case though, and new lawsuits have been filed recently so hang on to your wallets, taxpayers.
The other public employee who was top-rank and supposedly "leadership material" (Deegan) got a golden parachute for doing the same thing. What will this employee get?
