Just let it go. You tried to do the right thing. Don't release it in the wild, that will just cause you trouble. A general rule of thumb I have is "don't mess with people who can lock you up and charge you with all kinds of things". It's a simple rule, but one that seems to work out for the best. If someone with evil intent does come across this site, it's not your problem. You tried, they didn't care. When it hits the local papers, and makes headlines, then they might care.
One thing I just thought of...if your local paper has a "technology" writer, you may try and contact that person. Other than that, move on to something else.
