There comes a time when playing by the rules and getting your face kicked in anyway gets old. People have risen up for this reason alone countless times and you eventually have to stand up for yourself.
The real problem now is that we're taking it and taking it and taking it and when it snaps, it's going to be bad. But necessary.

Now there is a mass legion of faceless unaccountable witnesses who have the power to unmask the jackboots for all their miserable violence. You mace me, we find you. You try to find me, well, be prepared, because like they say......
They are anonymous,
They are legion
they do not forgive,
they do not forget,
Oh also, stop macing innocent non-violent hippie women,does this even need to be said?

I support the posting of the names and addresses of cops accused of wrong-doing, as well as the names of their families. What's good for the goose is good for the gander, and police have no problems targeting the families of people they go after.
What gets me is that people still think peaceful protest is going to do anything. If they are going to protest, they should show up as well armed as the police. Motorcycle helmets, gas masks, baseball bats, and guns; then if the police want to go from a peaceful protest to a violent protest, respond in kind. "80 Protesters Arrested" may not make much of a blip on CNN, but "80 Police Officers Hospitalized" would get airtime.
I don't get it, people are posted all over the news before they are even convicted of a crime. They don't work for the public either.
Not sure if anyone can agree with the family contact info, but why shouldn't public officials be identified if they are up to no good?

Now people know where he lives, and thus where his family lives. I don't condone what he did, but putting his family at risk? Sounds like a good way to get a lot of dead people on his front lawn.

This move by anonymous has the very real potential to backfire on them, badly. Publishing a cop's home address most likely won't get the cop hurt. If attacking the cop was what someone was after, they know exactly where he'll be. He's a cop after all He has a very predictable and assigned area with times to expect him. However, someone who wouldn't have the guts to attack the cop directly might well go for a wife and/or kids.
I hope this doesn't end badly for the family of this Cop. If it does....Anonymous will have crossed a line with me and millions more like me. You don't put a bulls eye on the FAMILY of the person you want to target for something. That may sound old fashioned to some, and to be totally honest here, I grew up as the son of a Cop so my view is hardly without bias...but some lines have been respected by even the worst of organized crime. Why can't Anonymous show some class too? Oh well...
If he was so worried about HIS family, maybe he should act professional and not risk retribution. Maybe the co-thugs should have considered that as well. He couldn't care less about anyone and was enjoying himself.
I'll stop now before I call you an insipid little NAUGHTYWORD.
adjective 1. without distinctive, interesting, or stimulating qualities; vapid: an insipid personality.
2. without sufficient taste to be pleasing, as food or drink; bland: a rather insipid soup.

So essentially you're saying what I've seen countless times in this thread. Two wrongs make a right.
If this mans family gets killed (doubt it but that's not the point) would you still think it was acceptable to encourage their harassment and post information?
Cops make mistakes too. They are not all these crazed Illuminati puppets so many on ATS would have you believe.
Do I want his family hurt? No way. Do I expect them to be hurt? No way. But the threat might keep others in line, which would be a success. Why is this cops family more important then the thousands upon thousands of families which have been flipped upside down because of corrupt cops?
Who said his family is at risk? The worst thing Anon has hinted at is prank pizza deliveries. So you are saying they will be a pizza delivery boy massacre? A ton of black faxes? Is your refrigerator running phone calls?
Public officials should be called out when they do wrong. What I take issue with is posting his family members and encouraging their harassment.
