No, the most ridiculous part of the above pull quote is that it took four goddamned officers to respond to this request, and they still reached the conclusion that a citation was warranted.
(new emphasis mine)
Not that this makes one iota of difference in the monumental stupidity of the situation, but it was only TWO 'officers' responding to a 'request' made by two MALL COPS (Portland Patrol Inc.). Therefore, for all of the (well-deserved) ration of shit you are heaping on the city's legal system, a big old helping of "Fuck You!" needs to be placed on the assholes who called the cops to begin with.
Hey, Portland Patrol Inc.! You are the first in a long string of assholes in this story! Even Paul Blart would be ashamed.
I represent a lot of powerful people that had their nudie pics stolen from somebody else. I'm not going to tell you who I represent, though; you know the ones.
I'm going to sue you for a bazillion bucks if you don't delete the pics that I'm not going to tell you about; you know the ones.
I'ma lawyer, and stuff. I don't care if you didn't steal the pics. I don't care if you didn't post the pics. I dont' care if you host the pics. You have the money and are big, and mean, and do bad things that the government says you shouldn't do.
Now do what I'm asking, though I didn't tell you specifically what I'm asking; you know the ones.
If you don't, (and how can you?), you will pay me and I'll be rich!

If I were a person who likes the Fan-page but dislikes the Official-page, I would have no way to show that except to 'Like' the one and do nothing with the other. By taking my like away (or simply copying it) from the Fan-page to the Official-page, my freedom of speech has now been affected and interfered with. I CHOSE not to like you; don't claim I like you if I liked something similar to you.
Someone needs to call up each and every institution/company/organization that has an anti-memory clause and ask them about it. If they respond with anything other than "I have to look that up and read it verbatim to you" then they should be sued for violating their own clause.
Some genius out there needs to create a web page that lists all of the links Google, et al, remove from their search responses. Make it a wiki so that the reasons for their requested removal can be documented, discussed, and analyzed.
It'll then be interesting to see the loop build as these pages get their search engine removal requests ... and a new wiki-page goes up .... get's listed ... gets a removal request ... lather...rinse...repeat....ad infinitum!
