Blogger finds confidential NYPD anti-terrorism document in the trash, posts it on his blogA "sensitive" counterterrorism document belonging to the New York Police Department was found in a trash can outside a police station by a passerby who has drawn attention for posting it online. Bucky Turco, the passerby who's also a blogger, found the document Thursday evening outside the Manhattan South Stationhouse on 42nd Street.
That was apparently just one day after the papers were used in a police department's counterterrorism training session, according to CNN affiliate WABC. The document was dated May 11.
The eight-page document, entitled "COBRA Task Force Deployments," contained a map of Times Square, instructions on vehicle checks and an old NYPD Terrorism Intelligence Report, dated February 21. COBRA, which stands for chemical ordinance, biological and radiological awareness, is a federally funded program to instruct officers on how to react to terrorist threats.
The document was stamped as "law enforcement sensitive" and said it "may not be distributed to members outside the NYPD" and that "all copies must be destroyed upon completion."
"The paper was just sitting in the can," Turco said.
He took it home, read it over "to check it wasn't a threat," and then posted it on his blog Friday afternoon, he said.

Nice.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army

So this sensitive paper "just happened" to be found by a guy who "just happens" to be a blogger, who "just happened" to be passing by the station. He doesn't admit to rummaging around in trash cans outside the station, just that he was passing by and it "was just sitting there".
Someone didn't pass Lying 101.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\
