Fox31 has discovered a list of passwords being circulated among government employees in charge of driver's license suspension hearings. They include such gems as SuckFail, CuzUDrnk ("Because You're Drunk") and URSkrood ("You Are Screwed").
At this point, it's unclear whether the passwords, designated for each month from 2011 through 2014, are real or a joke. But the station reveals an investigation is underway to determine if they indicate a bias against the folks who come to these employees on a daily basis seeking to get back driving privileges.
Do you think these passwords an example of people in a high stress job simply blowing off steam? Or offensive proof of impartiality? Judge for yourself after reading the complete photo-illustrated list, followed by the Fox31 report.
