DALLAS – The Dallas Police Department Web site was shut down Monday night after a hacker took over the site with anti-American rants.
Whoever hacked into the site also posted a doctored photograph showing American troops watching over four people lined up against a wall.
Each of the four prisoners had lines leading away from their faces to individual head shots of President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Sen. John McCain, according to Dallas-Fort Worth television station KTVT.
"My understanding is that no internal police data has been affected," police spokesman Lt. Vernon Hale said.
Hale said the department's technology staff will work to get the site back up. He said he was unaware of hackers ever taking over the site before.
