Well, that didn't take long.

Anonymous has put the Ferguson PD and the state government on notice. Their demands (and threats) are very specific, including a promise to release private information about every officer on the force, as well as taking every "web based asset" the department and state government has offline.

Forgive the shortness of this diary. The video speaks for itself.

WARNING: This video contains disturbing images. Viewer discretion is advised.

12:40 AM PT: Not sure, but I think Anonymous just released the names of all Florissant PD personnel.

12:48 AM PT: UPDATE FROM: ExpatGirl:

I support their demands. (1+ / 0-)

1. Do not harm protestors.

2. Introduce "Mike Brown's Law"

Anonymous demands that the Congressional Representatives and Senators from Missouri introduce legislation entitled "Mike Brown's Law" that will set strict national standards for police conduct in the USA. We further demand that this new law include specific language to grant the victims of police violence the same rights and prerogatives that are already enjoyed nationwide by the victims of other violent criminals. The Equal Protection clause of the US Constitution demands nothing less.

Amid Ferguson protests, hacker collective Anonymous wages cyberwar

"...a group claiming to be associated with Anonymous set up a Web site to organize cyberprotests as well as a Twitter account. It released a video and put out a press release...Then, apparently unhappy with the government’s response, it made good on its word.

The Internet crashed at City Hall. E-mail systems were hit. Phones died. City officials told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch a flood of traffic targeting the city’s site “just kept coming.”

On Tuesday afternoon, Anonymous took credit. The hacktivists had done this before, perhaps most notably in Albuquerque, where riots broke out in March over the police’s involvement in 37 shootings, 23 of them fatal, since 2010 — particularly the killing of a homeless man.

Now Belmar was the one in the crosshairs. At least one hacker trolled the Internet to find information on him, the Post-Dispatch reported, in retaliation for not disclosing the name of the officer who killed Brown. Authorities decided not to identify the officer because of threats made on social media. Anonymous said Tuesday it knew the name of the shooter and was making sure it had the right person before identifying him, tweeting, “Everyone be patient, we don’t want to be wrong.”

Then tweets once directed at Belmar turned to his daughter, CBC St. Louis reported, stating “Jon Belmar, if you don’t release the officer’s name, we’re releasing your daughter’s info. You have one hour.” Anonymous eventually gave up — and it’s not clear why. As of early Wednesday morning, the group had not released the officer’s name. Many Twitterers praised the hackers throughout the day Tuesday. Still, some called them out — particularly in posts about Belmar’s family — saying: “This. Is. Creepy.”; “Do you really think that officer went out to kill someone?” and “Dear God.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
