04/14/2005 Archived Entry: "Cops steal woman's identity"

HERE'S A NEW (BUT SOMEHOW ENTIRELY PREDICTABLE) TWIST ON IDENTITY THEFT. Ohio liquor cops steal the identity of a woman so they can give it to an undercover agent.

Yep. Cops -- authorized by a recent state law, so they claim -- simply grab the drivers license, SSN, and other records of an innocent citizen and freely toss them into a world of "crooks" they're supposedly investigating. Now doesn't that make you feel "served and protected"? Imagine the potential repercussions!
