Confetti Violation?

SHREDDED POLICE DOCUMENTS USED AS CONFETTI AT MACY'S
THANKSGIVING PARADE?


A couple of college students at Macy's 2012 Thanksgiving Day Parade noticed something strange about some of the confetti floating around. Ethan Finklestein, a Tufts University freshman, said, "It landed on [a friend's] shoulder and it says 'SSN' and it's written like a social security number, and we're like, 'That's really bizarre.' Once they started picking up other pieces of confetti they noticed a pattern. Finklestein explained, "There are phone numbers, addresses, more social security numbers, license plate numbers and then we find all these incident reports from police... This is really shocking. [One of the shreds] says, 'At 4:30 A.M. a pipe bomb was thrown at a house in the Kings Grant' area." It appears that the original documents were shredded horizontally instead of vertically, allowing specific lines to be easily read. On Monday (November 26th) sources close to the investigation revealed that a Nassau County Police Department employee who was watching the parade near 65th street brought the shredded documents for him and his family and friends to use as confetti.
