Confetti at Macy's parade contained confidential police records

Spectators at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade were showered with confetti while enjoying the festivities-- the problem? The confetti contained shredded paper made from confidential police records! Many of the small strips of paper contained personal information, including social security numbers, detectives phone numbers, names of undercover police officers and even information on Mitt Romney's motorcade. Police are investigating where the paper came from-- the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade only uses commercially manufactured, multicolored confetti.


Thoughts?
