The hackers collective known as Anonymous claims it broke into the email of dozens of law enforcement agencies - and released racist and offensive correspondence between cops.
London's Daily Mail reported that in one email to a police official in Texas, an officer commented that someone who started a car chase got "what she deserved."
"I'll bet she was fat and black too," the email added.
The email then continued "Same with that pervert that got shot by the county. F*** that guy, see ya. That all sounds like good police work to me."
There is also an email chain in one police department regarding "Muslim inbreeding," gizmodo.com reported. Another requested police investigate an officer's rendezvous with a married woman.
The group also hacked the website of the Texas Police Chiefs [Association], and posted the email addresses that had been hacked.
In a statement on the website, the Daily Mail reported, the hackers wrote: "Having a slow day behind the desk, filing papers, staring at your colleague's fine posterior?"
"What have you been up to since our last visit? Don't answer that. We already know."
