These leaks need to be redacted before they are published - period. Cooperating with police agencies or Military should not lead to you being outed to those you snitched on.

Your privacy is at stake. Suppose someone dumped a secure police database and your name was in there as having provided eyewitness information related to a gang hit. That would probably not be good.

Suppose University registration information was released - home addresses of students (which has happened) and some guy was stalking a young woman (which has happened).

"One big database" as a goal has unintended consequences...
