Have I missed something.Are the national guaed needed at this point? This will make the protesters even angrier.And leave it to the inflamer in cheif yo add guel to the fire criticizing local police.This could be a big mistake.

i dont think it will make them angrier as long as they arent being shot in the face with teargas
if theyre being sent in to beat protestors yeah theyll be angry
if theyre being sent to oversee and prevent the local pd from using unnecessary force then theyll be welcomed with open arms

Hey anonymous thank you for f#####g the internet up you people are useless all you are going to do is screw up everything for the little guy.

What a waste of talent.


So "we" should lay down and let the state and federal governments run rough shod all over "us" because you are afraid of data caps or tiered pricing or more censorship? You don't see the irony of this? I think it's a small price to pay personally.

wow!!...can't fight that with body armor, armored personal carriers, tear gas, baton clubs, ar-15's, S&W 40's, police dogs, etc....the power of information seems to be going both ways these days.


But it says that they released the wrong information from an unreliable source. Someone innocent might get hurt here or worse. Now I hate the cops of today, but I would want the right person to be held accountable....not an innocent.

As a derivation from your statement, I presume you are "other" than Caucasian...and your statement is just as racist as if someone were to verbally accuse your race. Not exactly a step forward is it?

My ancestors were Irish and German, if that helps? I'm asking this guy what he meant by what seemed a very strange remark. "If the kid was White, Native American, or Asian would the outcry be the same? Prob not."

Again, is that meant to imply that if an unarmed light skinned man is shot by the police, we will take it lying down without protest?

Anyone can be or say they are Anonymous. It's ridiculous to even consider it a group. The problem is even if you do have a core of people the media doesn't care, other groups don't care, nobody is there to defend you. It's like Hamas if someone says they did it, sure. Who the hell is going to argue it?

I could be wrong, and am speaking for this poster but I think what he is asking is if there would be such a large local and national uprising if the deceased was lighter skinned. While I don't think he is being racist, I think he is asking for the wrong reason even though the answer is the same.

If this wasn't a black kid in a black neighborhood I don't think the reaction would be the same. If it was a light skinned person in a black neighborhood it probably wouldn't be the same. If it was a light skinned person in a light skinned neighborhood it probably wouldn't be the same. This is happening because most likely these local people are used to being treated unfairly for what ever reason and are sick of it. Right or wrong, it doesn't really matter because it is what it is.

If it was a white kid in a well to do neighborhood the spineless white folks would probably just assume he deserved it and wouldn't bother saying anything because they have too much to lose. I would like to preface this by saying I am white myself, and it isn't meant to be a racist or biggoted comment in any way. This is just the type of attitude I see coming from the people I know and that live around me.

I personally don't care for any of the reasons why or the make believe scenarios of the victims skin color. I am happy to see people standing up for what is right, this type of incident has happened too many times to too many people and the water has finally boiled over the edge of the pot.

Why would anonymous side with one side without hearing the other sides version? Seems like a rush to judgment to me and it could come back to haunt them if there is proof that the officer was justified.


Seriously, let's not turn this into a comedy show... anyone suggesting the shooting was justified, in any way, shape, form or fashion...should present something that supports their claim, besides fantasy speculation.

So we stand by and do nothing for fear of rights being taken.... I think that behavior will take us down the very same road, only difference is that way they have silent consent. a reply to: thesaneone

If you think Anonymous is the problem then you have no clue what is going on. Don't you think it would make a little more sense to blame the people who actually do the "taking away" of the internet? That seems a bit more rational. Anonymous hasn't taken your internet away. They made public information that should have been released already. If the police would do their jobs then groups like this wouldn't have to get involved. In fact, if police would stop abusing their power then Anonymous wouldn't need to hack into their systems to gain recorded evidence of the crimes committed by police.

Some of these responses in this thread have me shaking my head...

Now, I do not agree with all of Anonymous' actions, but it's time SOMEONE did SOMETHING to stand up to this nonsense.

The LEO's and Top Brass in Ferguson are going way overboard with their military, I mean police force, which is like putting gasoline on a fire. What's going on in Ferguson isn't really a "riot". I've seen a real riot, in my hometown. And it popped off over a similar situation. What's happening in Ferguson, as of now, is unrest...but could certainly lead to something much more destructive and tense.

If the cops would just LET PEOPLE BE, let them protest (legally) and allow them their Constitutional rights, everything would probably die down rather quickly. But, they're out there in tanks with military style weapons and space age looking riot gear. They're going to keep pushing and pushing and the fine people of Ferguson are going to get fed up and they will start pushing back. Hard.

If people are PEACEFULLY protesting the shooting of an unarmed HUMAN BEING, then they should be allowed to do just that because it's their RIGHT. According to the Constitution, anyway.

When the police or any other controlling entities are able to shut down peaceful, appropriate, lawful protesting and control Twitter hash tags, THAT IS A BIG PROBLEM!

Wake up Sheeple. Those people (especially those in the USA) who are complaining and whining that Anonymous is going to take away the 'net, get a freaking grip. That IS NOT going to happen! So relax, get your head out of the sand and REALLY take a look at what is going on. Compare what's being shown on the MSM versus what is really happening, via Twitter, etc.

If you'd rather lose your actual Constitutional freedoms versus the Internet, you really need to get out more. Or just move to North Korea, or some other Communist and controlling place.

Seriously...

Using the military against the people of this country is prohibited and for good reason. If the military is brought in to this it will be a call to arms for all citizens. People should calm down. Escalating the situation will not solve anything, only make things worse. I know there are some firebugs out there that will be fanning the flames for their own sick amusement, and the yellow journalists trying to sell more newspapers, but we have to move beyond that and try to slow this thing down.

So the appropriate thing to do is to threaten hacking websites, and then release wrong information, possibly putting someone's life at risk?

"Anonymous" is a bad joke. The only thing they have ever done worth a damn is lead to arrests in a child porn ring. Usually they bleat about what amazing things they are going to do / release, and nothing happens.. or as in this case, the wrong thing. Dorks with delusions of grandeur, and I feel that most just want the limelight.. they couldn't actually care less about the actual issues.

Martial law?

The governor of Missouri will reportedly relieve St. Louis County law enforcement from policing the ongoing demonstrations in the town of Ferguson, paving the way for possible state or federal intervention.


rt.com...


Well they cant have local police beating down on people too much can they? That's all this is... When the smoke clears the local police will CLAIM to be on the side of the pee'd off residents... Oh we would never have treated you like that! How awful, our hands were tied though, they took us off the case! rah rah...

Just a standard pass the buck ploy... We did this in care homes... If a resident was upset, the staff member present would leave the room only for another one to take their place... Makes them think they got what they wanted... But in reality nothing has changed...

As for anonymous! You go guys! Names and addresses of ALL the pigs and any affiliations too! What... the pigs don't do this huh? You bet your nelly they do! Hey throw in family members too! Not just of the cop that cop the lad... The whole stinkin lot!

If any person goes after a cops gun they will most likely get capped. Color doesn't matter. A man here where I live tried it(he was white) and he got shot to death.

Do you have inside information, or?

None of us on ATS actually KNOW what led to that man being shot by the police last Saturday. So to take what the PD said as fact is, IMHO, shallow. Use your head...Of course they're going to say and spin this story to make this look justified. How shooting someone THAT many times is justified, is beyond me. Bottom line: NO one knows if that is what happened and we may never know.

Those claims were made by the LEO, who shot an unarmed man almost a dozen times, and the PD's claim, because they will back their Brother in Blue. Excuse me while I vomit...

Multiple witnesses and Michael Brown's friend, who he was walking back from the store with, all say that is NOT what occurred. The LEO in question initially got on them for NOT WALKING ON THE SIDEWALK. This ALL started because Mr. Brown and his pal were walking in the street! How dare they, did they think they were walking down the street in Americuhhh???

Sorry, but these days I tend to believe the independent witnesses and accounts from regular 'ol folks before anything coming out of a PD or LEO's mouth...They usually spin it to make the victim look WAY more guilty than they are and will do what ever they can to keep things under wraps, behind that blue wall, or line, or whatever.
