I said "find" not pick a target at random!
Suppose a police officer takes all the usual precautions about keeping his address private but some loony decides to make it readily available just because it's found on some obscure public list somewhere. Who knows what the consequences might be! There have also been cases of would-be Muslim terrorists looking for any soldier to kill.
If someone is thinking of writing something like "my brother in law is a police officer and he's in the phone book" - I don't want to hear it.
Incidentally it's worth pointing out again that publishing such information without permission would almost certainly be a breach of the data protection act in the UK.
