Mother Jones’ Josh Harkinson writes:

I traded emails last night with one of the half-dozen core Anonymous members working on Operation Ferguson, as the group’s effort to pressure and shame the local police department is known. They were still working to verify the identity of the shooter. “I can only tell you that our source is very close personally to the officer who killed Mike Brown, and that this person is terrified to be our source,” said the anon, whom I will call Fawkes. He added that the source “reached out to us, we did not seek out this person.”

Harkinson’s source said that Anon members were firmly united behind the group’s recent efforts in Ferguson:

Per Harkinson:

It has been a busy few days for Operation Ferguson. The hackers shut down the city’s website for a few hours on Sunday night and Tuesday morning, posted the home address and number of police chief John Belmar, and dropped an email bomb that crammed city and police inboxes with junk messages. The goal was “to get journalists like you to do interviews with us, and incidentally maybe talk about the issue at hand in the process,” Fawkes told me. “Looks like it worked.” Early this morning, the allied Twitter account @TheAnonMessage announced that it had access to emergency response recordings related to Brown’s death.

    A radio station employee Mustaffa Hussen was showing Live footage on Lawrence O’Donnell show/MSNBC, horrifying! And later another reporter Traymmaine ? from MSNBC was reporting Live, again horrifying! Where are the elected officials, where is Governor Jay Nixon? I might as well be watching footage on the WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST because that’s exactly what it looks like watching footage in Ferguson MO.

    Watching live footage on MSNBC Lawrence O’Donnell last night was horrifying. I thought I was watching a WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST. Shame on how poorly the police are handling the situation, shame on the elected officials for not coming to the aid of it’s citizens, shame on Governor Jay Nixon for not stepping up to the plate to calm the storm taking place in his State, shame on the citizens of Ferguson for voting the same people back into office or worse, not voting at all, and yes rioting like hoodlums at WAR in the MIDDLE EAST was dumb!

  3. The Ferguson PD are a bunch of COWARDS!!!!

    Why should the cop who killed this young man remained cloaked in anonymity?—
    In addition, why have these POS cops refused to interview several witnesses who know the FACTS regarding this MURDER! I have never heard of this ever. You would think that they would want to know what really went on unless they are busy in the precinct spinning their own tale!!!!!!—The Department of Justice needs to demand that this cops name be released to the public now!!!!!

    • Yes Linda, if the cop that murdered Michael Brown is so innocent or killed him in “Self Denfense”, then why is he hiding??? You’d think that he’d come out, apologize (at least “ACT” like he was remorseful) for the young mans death and let the investigation take it’s course. The reason he’s hiding and the whole police force is covering for him is because something in the wash aint clean!!!
