This one is almost funny. Check out the Police Site.

It amazes me that websites can be attacked in this manner every day of the week and nothing ever gets done about it, but a police site gets attacked and there is a prosecution in a flash. The other charges have probably been added so it doesn't look like the police are just looking after themselves.

I think the other charges are integral to the main charge and substantiate the evidence that a single person was responsible, although I don't understand the "flooding with data" bit.
One would expect such a viable target to be secured against such a ploy. And, if they have to spend all their time investigating such attacks then wouldn't they be better off not having a website at all?
I would go and have a look at their site but I fear I may open two or three pages at once and be accused of trying to bring down the government..... Sorry, Police Force..... Sorry, I did of course mean SOCA. Sorry, I obviously meant a useless unmonitored website.
