Anonymous Hacks City Of Ferguson Website, City Emails Not Working
[su_right_ad]As part of Operation Ferguson, a response by the collective Anonymous to the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager, the loosely knit group took down the city of Ferguson’s website on Sunday night. Mike Brown was gunned down by a police officer in the Missouri town, and eyewitness accounts seem to contradict the story given by the police department.
Anonymous vowed retribution if any police abuse is directed toward the protesters in Ferguson.
Officials say none of the city’s e-mails were working on Monday morning. After anticipating a problem, the mayor of Ferguson had the IT Department take down all personal information from the site on Saturday, according to KMOV On Sunday, Anonymous stated in part:
If you attack the protesters, we will attack every server and computer you have. We will dox and release the personal information on every single member of the Ferguson Police Department, as well as any other jurisdiction that participates in the abuse. We will seize all your databases and E-Mail spools and dump them on the Internet. This is your only warning.
Since then, images of police releasing tear gas have circulated online. There have been reports of police firing rubber bullets and ordering residents and members of the media to leave public areas. Just one question: When the Bundy ranch militia members aimed rifles at authorities, were any of them shot by the police? Michael Brown was unarmed, with his hands in the air.
