Confidential police documents were used as Macy's parade confetti

Source: WPIX-TV

Something far more concerning than marching bands, balloons, cheerleaders and clowns was at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Confidential personal information is what some paradegoers found among confetti tossed during the world's most famous parade. That information included social security numbers and banking information for police employees, some of whom are undercover officers.

... A closer look shows that the documents are from the Nassau County Police Department. The papers were shredded, but clearly not well enough.

... The Nassau County Police Department told PIX11, via a written statement from its commanding officer for public information, Inspector Kenneth Lack, "The Nassau County Police Department is very concerned about this situation. We will be conducting an investigation into this matter as well as reviewing our procedures for the disposing of sensitive documents."

2. That's really messed up

"For its part, the sponsor of the parade, Macy's, told PIX11 News that it uses "commercially manufactured, multicolor confetti, not shredded paper.""

I wonder if this is where the shreddings go from those commercial shredding services. That would be pretty fucked up, especially since it isn't even shredded enough.
