    The hackers who defaced police department websites in Boston and Alabama did so in support of the Occupy Boston movement, and to protest the Boston Police for what they perceive as unprovoked violence against demonstrators. There's another, decidedly less righteous reason behind their attacks, however: they were bored. The hack, according to Wired, replaced the websites of the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association (BPPA) the Baldwin County Sheriff's office in Alabama and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) with an anti-police rap video.
