Apparently they were retaliating against the arrest of people who support the group in both the United States and the United Kingdom. Not only did they take information that they will release in order embarrass law enforcement officials in the US but they also stole emails, credit card information, etc. For the most part they hacked sheriff offices across the US. Most of the sites apparently didn't have much other than the personal information of the deputies and other employees.

Personally I think anonymous has gone out of control with this latest attack. Now their stealing personal stuff like credit card information and doing something like that can really ruin peoples lives. Especially in economic times like these I don't think anonymous should be taking such a risk with other peoples credit information especially if their just ordinary citizens who just happen to be law enforcement officers.

If they want to release the incriminating evidence or embarrassing information they claim to have stolen that's fine but stealing credit card information and other personal information crosses the line in my opinion.

All is fair in love and war.


What anon is trying to do is a warfare tactic, strongly used by Germans of going after anyone associated with the enemy. If they start really hurting the groups that are the "enemy" people wont want to work for these groups that (i know law enforcement does good) can perpetrate evils in certain ways.

IMO, they would be best off collecting the names of people working at the Fed reserve and the IRS and going after them. Coming from a masters in finance student, so ask me an q's you need to know.
