Anonymous Calls for “Mike Brown’s Law” in Response to Missouri Police Killing of Unarmed 17-year-old

Greetings world, we are Anonymous.

On August 9th in Ferguson, Missouri the 17 year old and unarmed Mike Brown was shot several times and killed by an officer of the Ferguson Police Department. His body was left to lie in a pool of blood in the sweltering heat for hours while 15 police departments militarized the area against protesters, sealed the roads leading to Ferguson in a vain attempt to prevent protesters from reaching the city. The police has clearly crossed a line in the sand.

For this reason Anonymous will not be satisfied this time, as we have in the past – with simply obtaining justice for this young man and his family. 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 and misbehaviour in the USA.

To the good people of Ferguson, take heart – and take your streets. You are not alone, we will support you in every way possible. Occupy every square inch of your city. Demand justice, staying silent today could result in the death of your kid tomorrow.

To the Ferguson Police Department and any other jurisdictions who are deployed to the protests: we are watching you very closely. If you abuse, harass – or harm in any way the protesters in Ferguson we will take every web based asset of your departments and governments off line. That is not a threat, it is a promise. Attacking the protesters will result in the release of personal information on every single member of the Ferguson Police Department, as well as any other jurisdiction that participates in the abuse of this States own law. We will seize all your databases and E-Mail spools and dump them on the Internet. This is your first and last warning.

The time has come for more than simple justice for these atrocities. The time has come to draw a line in the sand. The time has come to bring those to justice, who served to protect us, not kill us.

Until justice prevails, hack and protest will replace it.

Operation Ferguson engaged.

    Lots of racist comments over this at CNN.

    • Oginikwe

      Where’s MLK when you need him?
      The media focus on the looting has really hurt their cause and it is my hopes that someone with national exposure will step up to the plate and tell them to stop, that this is not how things are change for the better–a leader needs to emerge.

      • http://www.thecinematika.com The Cinematika

        I kept waiting for a leader to emerge from the OWS protests. The day I realized there wouldn’t be one is the day I realized OWS was useless. There has to be some sort of unification. At least Anonymous is proposing a solution to the problem, not that I expect anything substantial to come of it.

        • Oginikwe

          I don’t believe that OWS was useless. Ineffectual but not useless.
          Anyone who paying close attention saw many circumstances that didn’t make any sense. Why was OWS moved on so quickly while the Tea Party was free to organize and move in public spheres carrying some heavy artillery? That alerted many us to the idea that some heavy hitters were backing the TP, that they weren’t “a spontaneous grassroots organization” and that TPTB were far more afraid of the populist OWS than they were anything the TP could come up with. This was before those “heavy hitters” were exposed and why they were exposed.

          If anything, the images that came out of OWS woke us to the fact that we are damn near living in a police state that makes no bones about violently moving against peaceful protesters and their “illicit” libraries and meals for the homeless, or using industrial strength pepper spray on helpless college students armed only with an opinion. This is why the issues surrounding a free internet is so important and why TPTB want to quash it: they don’t want a free exchange of ideas or a linking between generations–between those who remember how we got where we are today and those who question but are without context those very same issues.

          One big thing that I saw on discussion boards about OWS was that there are a lot of angry, hate-filled people out there working against their own interests and ours who attacked the OWS movement without understanding government infiltrators and trolls and the work they do. When their purpose is not clearly understood, it is easy to divide and conquer. Divide and conquer is what they did. Whatever leaders that OWS could have had, would probably be in one the places so many activists are in now: prison, expatriated, or their graves.

      • Chad Burke

        Should these animals get a pass on the looting and rioting? What do local businesses, owners, and employees have to do with this shooting? Just an excuse to steal stuff. The ‘leaders’ are on the way. Jesse and Al will be there any minute doing their typical thing.

        • Andrew

          > animals

          I smell racism.

          • Chad Burke

            Your comment is telling about your mindset. These people respond to a situation like animals. Someone gets shot, let’s go rob our neighbors, smash windows and burn buildings. Where do you see humanity or logic in that response? Truth isn’t racism.

          • Andrew

            > Truth isn’t racism.

            There it is!

          • Chad Burke

            Its great to have winners like you around, overusing and draining all meaning and shock value from claims of racism. There are about 3 people left in this country who still think it means something so keep up the good work sparky. I’m done.

          • Andrew

            The word racism is being drained of it’s meaning by racists who claim spotting racism is a form of racism. But I will keep up the good work.

          • Ray Mundo

            rob our neighbors? Where do you see HUMANITY in killing UNARMED INNOCENT TEENAGERS? or are you just trolling for attention like a middle schooler?

          • Chad Burke

            Forget about the part where the thug shoved the cop into the cruiser and fought with him over the gun. You elevate the threat level like that and I have no sympathy.

          • Echar Lailoken

            What personal payoff do you get from using dehumanizing terms for the unarmed man, Mr. Mike Brown who was recently shot dead?

          • Andrew

            How do you know the boy shoved the pig and fought with it over the gun?

          • Chad Burke

            You guys are hilarious. One of you chastises me for using derogatory descriptors for Brown while the other calls the cop a pig and it.

          • Andrew

            It’s called giving you some of your own medicine. Also, trolling.

          • Chad Burke

            I’m laughing at you douche. If you think your hypocrisy is medicine to me, more power to you.

          • Andrew

            I’m glad you called it hypocritical. That means you recognize that I just did the same thing you’ve been doing since yesterday.

            So, was it wrong for me to call the cop a pig? Are looters worse than killers? Should we automatically take a cop’s word because he’s a cop, or because the person he killed is black?

            How does that medicine taste? Do you like it?

          • Chad Burke

            Here’s the difference. I never told you or anyone else what to call anyone. As for this story, its infinitely more plausible that brown did something drastic to provoke the shooting than it is likely that this cop decided to execute someone for no reason in broad daylight. So yes, until I have reason to believe otherwise, I’ll take the cop at his word.

          • Andrew

            Fair enough, you didn’t actually tell me not to call the cop a pig, or you a racist. Of course, I didn’t actually tell you not to call the rioters and looters animals, or Brown a thug.

            So, why do you think it’s more plausible that Brown did something drastic?

          • Chad Burke

            Occam’s razor.

          • Echar Lailoken

            Inductive bias! You know what they say about assuming? To assume makes an ass out of u and… Well, just you in this instance.

          • Chad Burke

            Unless a magic video pops up that wraps this whole thing up, what exactly do you think a jury will be doing to determine this case? They will make their best assumption based on the facts, which is all I’m doing now. Tsk tsk on the name calling. I’m not a baby though so I won’t flag you.

          • Echar Lailoken

            Being factual with how you are appearing to everyone is not calling names. It’s pointing out that you indeed look like an ass.

            You called an unarmed man who was shot dead, a thug. And others, animals. If you cannot see how that makes you an ass, and then to openly claim your bias with some slithery phrase such as occam’s razor. That’s beyond doubly ass like.

          • Andrew

            The facts according to those you choose to believe.

          • Echar Lailoken

            From my perspective, the police officer, who murdered this man, appears to be the “thug” in this instance. It’s well known that police corruption happens, and that they look after their own. An officer once lied in court and I was charged with posession and paraphenalia.

            Besides, even if Brown pushed and tried to take his gun, how does that make it ok to murder him? This is how I see this situation. Always on, eye level cameras for every police officer will solve these instances.

          • Oginikwe

            Apparently racial profiling has been a problem all along:

            NAACP files civil rights complaint against St. Louis County police: http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/naacp-files-civil-rights-complaint-against-st-louis-county-police/article_5e3ddfee-b883-55a1-bf08-948f74c96e47.html

          • Echar Lailoken

            “Do you know what it’s like for an officer to be accused of racial profiling? It’s career ending. But (Pruitt) has no regard for the facts and how it’s going to affect their lives and their careers.”

            Wow, what about the kid they murdered?

          • Oginikwe

            This article was from January, before Brown was shot. That was my point: this has been building for awhile. I can’t even imagine my supervisor telling me to target one group of people and what makes it even more insidious is this are police.

          • Echar Lailoken

            Oh, I didn’t read the date, I will make a conscious effort to do that for now on. I’ve not been singled out for my skin, but I have for how I look. Leather jacket, mohawk, ratty clothes, etc… So I know profiling happens. I can and have changed my appearance, I can’t imagine what it’s like to be targetted for skin color.

          • Oginikwe

            Skin color, gender, age: it’s all the same–can’t do anything about it except stand there as an “it.” Most of the time, I’m invisible, and I sort of like that because you have a lot of freedom when no one pays much attention to you.

          • Echar Lailoken

            Holy crap, there are some awful people in the world. Just now I am interacting with a guy at some random site who made a comment about not taking a police officers gun. Like it warrents Brown’s murder. Why would people accept the authorities take on this. To me they are the more likely to lie.

            *pardon… upset and venting. Tired of awful, ignorant people.

          • Andrew

            > Why would people accept the authoritie’s take on this.

            Because Brown was black.

          • Echar Lailoken

            So much awful :(

          • Oginikwe

            Then there are people like you . . .and Andrew . . .and Jin, Buzz, VoxMagi and Marcie and many others whose personalities are thoughtful, happy, and positively responsive.
            Almost all of the people I know are wonderful people who are compassionate and caring. Sometimes it helps to take a break from the internet and take time to interact with your family and friends because it helps us remember what is real and tangible. Those “awful” people on the internet are on their own hard journey which they make harder through their disconnect to the rest of humanity. It’s a terrible thing to take a man’s or woman’s life: it’s all we really have.

          • Echar Lailoken

            Usually I have mental buffer, but It gets to me sometimes.

          • Denise Bligh

            So, guilty until proven innocent?

          • Echar Lailoken

            It must be nice to be perfect.

            Next!

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9u9K7Up4Ts

          • Denise Bligh

            It is. Thank you.

          • Echar Lailoken

            Excellent attempt at recovery from one of your very own manipulative comments, made to another. I quoted from your own back log of comments.

            Next!

          • Denise Bligh

            Taken out of context once again. I was also making a point about all these people convicting the woman before she had gone to trial. You are a piece of work Echar. Why are you afraid of the truth?

          • Echar Lailoken

            Next!

          • Denise Bligh

            No intelligent response? I am not surprised.

          • Echar Lailoken

            You are the one defending the use of excessive force. Which incidentally led to the death of a young man. No matter if he tried for his gun and hit the pig in the face, as calimed. There is no excuse for his death. Talk about intelligence.

            Next!

          • Echar Lailoken

            Ok, so to use your mentality. You just pushed me and my friends, who are frequent commentors here. We now have the right to theoretically *internet shoot you?

            No one has told you what to or not to say. We have however shared our honest perceptions of your activity in this thread. From my perspective you express racist, hyprocritical, and childish thinking.

            I’d like you to know I’ve also flagged two of your comments for calling my friends childish names. Please keep it up, I’d like you to get banned. It’s obvious to me that you have no intention of playing nice.

            *the odd wording is to denote no real world intention of threat or bodily harm*

          • Chad Burke

            Your first sentence is completely irrelevant to the situation and fairly nonsensical. Re the second, I understand what you think constitutes me being racist. You happen to be wrong, but I couldn’t care less. You call me hypocritical so you obviously don’t understand the meaning of that word. You won’t find an example of it in anything I’ve said. As for flagging me, go right ahead. That just proves you can’t stand a challenge to the status quo liberal spoonfed crap that makes up 95% of your deluded thought processes.

          • Echar Lailoken

            I say it’s relevant. Most of the people here that you assume are liberals, are not. Challenge all you like, impetuous child. Just don’t call people pussies, or douches. Or rather please do, I await your banning, and the zerging you will have brought upon yourself, if you continue.

          • Andrew

            To be completely fair, he might not be racist but merely statist.

          • Echar Lailoken

            Ouch, maybe.

          • Oginikwe

            As opposed to rioting when your team wins/loses?

        • Oginikwe

          I’d reply to you but I can’t get pass “these animals.”

      • Guest
  • Austin Range

    So if police get out of line by some random standard that may not even conform with the laws the police are abiding by they may have web resources taken down in what could be considered terrorism. Also how will they assist the police when the protestors turn to rioting again? No one has shown proof that Mike Brown was shot in the back and now atrocities of due process and civil order are taking place by the people, where are the hackers to attack the rioters?

    • Joey Wehrlie

      First off, define “random standard”, Secondly, what law did the police abide by that let them murder someone in cold blood, Thridly, isn’t murdering someone in the streets lack of due process, Lastly, YOU ARE A DUMB BEARDY CUNT THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THAT STREET INSTEAD. SHEEP.

      • Austin Range

        What account are you believing? The two men encountered by the officer assaulted him and attempted to steal his weapon, neither of them are innocent if that is their reaction to police. What proof has come out that says he was shot in cold blood? No one has even released information on the events, people claiming to be eye witnesses will almost guaranteed be inadmissible in court due to it being night time and most likely didn’t see the entire event.

        • Oginikwe

          See how misinformed you are? It wasn’t night, it was broad daylight. Do you make this stuff up? Even Fox News reported it correctly.

    • Oginikwe

      He wasn’t shot in the back, he was shot in the face and chest. “Atrocities of due process and civil order”? Isn’t this what this is all about–the lack of due process and civil order between the police and the citizens? I, for one, am tired of hearing stories of young black men dying in police custody. I don’t condone rioting but I understand the anger that comes with denial of access to the “American Dream.”

      • Austin Range

        He was never in police custody, he wasn’t even detained before the officer was assaulted and an attempt to steal the officer’s weapon took place.

        • Oginikwe

          You are misinformed.
          The policeman stopped him because he was walking in the street. His only crime at that time was “walking in the street while black.”

  • HCE

    As much as I appreciate Anonymous, at least philosophically, they really are going to have more effective means of intimidating those they go after. I’m not really sure cyber attacks carry much weight. And now that anonymous has tipped their hand, the cops are probably preparing for it, just in case.

    • Ray Mundo

      EVERYTHING is done by computer, so a cyber attack would have a GREAT effect on them…but prepare for it how?!?! lol

  • B.J.D

    Does Anonymous even know what happened here, or is this some of that good ol’ fashioned knee jerk activism?

    • http://gregforest.com Greg Forest

      If they don’t know now, they will soon. Once they hack into the police servers, the truth will come out. As for the police defending their data, I wish them luck. The NSA, a lot of banks and huge online vendors thought they were hack proof too.

      I sure don’t think its knee jerking to want to live in a country that isn’t a police surveillance state.

  • Ryuk’s Last Apple

    he better have a good team behind him (if he’s not some fed) cause hes in the cross hairs now….I mean honestly shit like this happens everyday and the most people do is spam facebook…with this shit….I respect anon for what he stands for but this will not accomplish anything. you are better off protesting about the mass amounts of aluminum dioxide in the air. take a rainwater sample and send it to a verified science facility. they will send ur ass a letter saying its so toxic they can’t even send u the damn jar back. police shooting innocent children is normal. why?because a lot of cops have mental and racial issues..police are citizens just like us and protesting is begging. if you wanna make a difference , stop using federal notes, grow your own food, etc. ur still gonna have problems even then though.

  • Ryuk’s Last Apple

    i mean damn lets start.this shit.before china and russia throw their hands up and say “we dont care anymore fuck the dollar” .. when that happens the people on these comments who havent been prepping are gonna be the looters… and the excuse will be “nobody saw it coming” … watch.

  • http://www.zoboprepublic.wordpress.com/ zobop republic

    Way too many Black people getting shot & killed by cops in this country. Sooner or later something is gonna give way in the USA! Maybe we need a Occupy Movement for this sort of thing.

  • Oginikwe
  • Bruce

    I think I am missing something…..arent there already laws against illegal shootings? Yes of course there are, that is why they are called “illegal.”

  • The one.

    When you find out that anonymous is the government. Whoa! xD

  • bern

    What I saw on that video was murder by an armed police officer. The boy had nothing and turned his back and was shot multiple times by a gun crazed man!
    Something should be done! I don’t think all police officers are bad because there is good and bad in every occupation but this man was clearly a bad officer.

  • Pee Bee

    what a joke. the criminal was shot dead by a good officer and morons are attacking innocent store owners over it.

  • Oginikwe

    You have the personality of a snapping turtle.
    Good riddance.

  • Echar Lailoken

    It’s odd that you would call others animals, yet display such a lack of humanity. You won’t be missed.

  • Chad Burke

    Lol…lmb.

  • Andrew

    > Lol…lmb.

    Don’t do it. He has the balls of a snapping turtle too.
