There’s a Dirty Harry sort of network going after the perps at this point. But like the vigilante cops in the movie of the same name, the urban legend value of what LulzSec is doing is difficult to ignore. Law enforcement officials are sure to catch up with “the gang” soon. Or so it is thought. If I were them, and I’m not, I would have already piled up mounds of misleading pointers to random people to distract investigations from finding who I was. I’m guessing a lot of innocents get caught in the dragnet. More lulz for twisted minds. I smell a Hollywood screenplay in the making.
