That's a given on the internet, whoever think otherwise is delutional.

And rightfully so.

Imagine this scenario:

- Jealous policeman
- Wife with a friend
- Policeman gets the records
- Guess the end of the story...

Second scenario:

- Rouge policeman
- Indiscreet politician/personality/business person
- Policeman gets the records
- How far fetched would you think blackmail can be?

Common sense, the Judge just had to have common sense and read the news about rouge police.
