Most school zone signs I've seen have flashing lights that go off when the lower speed limit is in effect, usually only when students are going to and leaving the school.

It would be more like someone setting up a table at the store handing you something saying it was a free sample and then you finding out later that the person had no affiliation with the store.
Then go after the person who set up the table with the "free samples". When a crime is committed, someone committed the crime and the question is where was it committed? It looks like the crime in the OP was committed when the person who had access to the DMV records took the pictures and handed them to someone else.

I don't think the state of Florida also publishes who has a CWP and who doesn't, mainly for safety reasons and in the courses they stress to NOT brag about your CWP, that you should keep it quiet, too.

Here is the Florida CWP law (it's long):

http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/...EChapter%20790

Section 790.06 states:
Quote:
(16) The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services shall maintain statistical information on the number of licenses issued, revoked, suspended, and denied.
So they do have a list of who has one, who had one, and who has been denied (pretty obvious).


Section 790.0601 states:

Quote:
790.0601 Public records exemption for concealed weapons.
(1) Personal identifying information of an individual who has applied for or received a license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm pursuant to s. 790.06 held by the Division of Licensing of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is confidential and exempt from s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a), Art. I of the State Constitution. This exemption applies to such information held by the division before, on, or after the effective date of this section.
(2) Information made confidential and exempt by this section shall be disclosed:
(a) With the express written consent of the applicant or licensee or his or her legally authorized representative.
(b) By court order upon a showing of good cause.
(c) Upon request by a law enforcement agency in connection with the performance of lawful duties, which shall include access to any automated database containing such information maintained by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The list mentioned in section 790.06 is supposed to be confidential (with the exceptions listed below). I think (b) and (c) do not apply here so unless they have the written permission of the people they used then the person who took this information and handed it to someone without access committed the crime.

IMO someone with access to that information should be fully aware of the law. In my company, even though I don't have (legal) access to external customer information, since I do have access to the computers I have to sign NDA's and go though regular training on customer information privacy etc, and that's just with my company. I'm a little surprised that a government entity doesn't go though this.

The problem here is one of figuring out who did what. Person A asked for photos of a class of people from person B. Person B provided photos to person A. It is possible that neither persons A or B actually committed an offense and it was merely a lack of proper procedures in place or a failure to follow them.

I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that there weren't procedures to cover this situation. It's also possible that the procedures exist and one or more of the people involved was never adequately trained in them.

I think it is quite simple. There are people with legal access to the information and people without legal access to the information.

The person who has legal access to the information who handed it to the person without legal access is the one who committed the crime.

The captain handed the list to the lobbyist. This is covered in 790.0601:

Quote:
(c) Upon request by a law enforcement agency in connection with the performance of lawful duties, which shall include access to any automated database containing such information maintained by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
As far as I know, political agenda is not part of a police officer's "lawful duties". I took a quick look in the Florida law for a definition of "lawful duty" and it is not defined (as far as I can tell) but since "duty" is often defined as a "legal obligation" then it would seem that "lawful duty" would pertain to law enforcement etc.. (for example, researching a crime suspect if they have a CWP or not).

The article states that the 8 photos used were of "outlaw bikers with valid state Carry Concealed Weapon permits". So if the captain was getting the information because they were going to serve a warrant, that is legal, but he handed it to the lobbyist who, as far as I can tell (and I'm sure it would have been mentioned), does not have legal access to this information.

The police captain is the one who broke the law, IMO.
