An international group of anonymous hackers is changing the #Ferguson protest one key stroke at a time.
Anonymous joined in on the fight to avenge the death of Black, unarmed teen Mike Brown when the collective announced #OperationFerguson and threatened the city’s police department in the process. Anonymous demanded that information on the cop who shot and killed the 18-year-old be made public… or else.
When members received no response, the hacktivists began to leak private information on other cops and their family members before doing the inevitable –– tweeting a picture of Bryan P. Willman, revealing the alleged culprit in question.
The group’s Twitter account has since been “suspended” (no surprise there). But public protest is only heightened in light of such eyebrow-raising news, if only to applaud the people behind the Guy Fawkes masks.
