ICE officials further opened to Doxxing by Wikileaks...

Speaking of “social warfare” in the news, it quickly crosses the lines into dangerous, illegal territory when political activists engage in doxxing. Shortly after New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon put out the call to abolish the office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) others decided to up the ante considerably. The names and addresses of ICE agents and other agency employees were posted on Wikileaks, apparently gleaned from Linkedin and other sources. This was clearly intended as an intimidation tactic at a minimum but opens the door to actual doxxing and the risk of injury or death to the agents. So why would Wikileaks stoop to such a level?
