According to Los Angeles Times on Monday, November 26, Nassau County police has announced they are now conducting an inside investigation on how such shredded confident papers were allegedly included in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade confetti, which were found by some of the parade goers.
“I’m just completely in shock. How could someone have this kind of information, and how could it be distributed at the Thanksgiving Day Parade?” Inspector Kenneth Lack, from the Nassau County Police Department, was quoted telling to reporters.
“The Nassau County Police Department is very concerned about this situation. We will be conducting an investigation into this matter as well as reviewing our procedures for the disposing of sensitive documents.” Lack added, with some of the Macy’s parade confetti found reportedly even included details about Mitt Romney‘s motorcade.
Last Friday, Ethan Finkelstein, a college freshman of Tufts University, was exclusively interviewed by WPIX, a TV station in New York City, and was among the thousands who watched Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade 65th Street and Central Park West, said that he found some unusual kind of confetti falling on them.
“It landed on her shoulder, and it says ‘SSN’ and it’s written like a social security number, and we’re like, ‘That’s really bizarre.'” Ethan Finkelstein told PIX11 News, referring to a strip of confetti found stuck on her girl friend’s coat, with some of them later discovered to be from Nassau County Police Department.
“There are phone numbers, addresses, more social security numbers, and license plate numbers and then we find all these incident reports from police.” Finkelstein added, with Macy’s telling PIX11 News that they are using “commercially manufactured, multicolor confetti, not shredded paper.”
