The guy broke the law, tried to lie about it and now that's called privacy concern? Oh the hypocrisy.
Look, US can be a little old on those things. That's why I live in Europe where people are actually held responsible for their actions. You don't get to say it's a privacy concern if you go around driving over people and shoot them with a shotgun!
You know what, if you kill a guy with your car at least take responsibility and try to work it out with the police. Don't lie about it, you have no shame!
