I love when you become so close with someone that you can see parts of each other in one another and you begin to say the same things and steal lines from one another and have a similar sense of humor and can exchange an inside joke with just a glance you don’t even have to talk because you have such a strong connection with them and you can sit in comfortable silence but also talk for hours it’s really hard to find that kind of compatibility

The Google Doc with all the information on #NMOS14 is here, and it is a bit over-crowded, so some of the links and features might be a little down.
However, from the rest of my Illinois friends, there is a service in Chicago and for the rest of Illinois, there is one in Carbondale. If you can’t make these services, that’s okay, you can still observe a moment of silence in the least.
Here’s a bail and legal fund with a PayPal donation button, for the people arrested for people PEACEFUL PROTESTING, the first amendment in our Constitution. The FIRST ONE.
Mister Brown, Mister Garner, Mister Crawford, and Mister Ford deserve justice. Their families deserve justice. Their communities deserve justice. This isn’t about us, and certainly not us individually anymore.
Reporters from the Washington and Huffington Posts have been arrested, the mobilized police are more heavily armed than some of our troops sent to Iraq, these ‘riots’ are people scared for their lives for good reasons.
Six Post meridiem. You can spare at least a minute.
Anon has officially started doxing. They are doxing Ferguson’s police Chief John Belmar and his family. They HAVE ALSO POSTED HIS ADDRESS ONLINE AS WELL.
With the protest going on in Ferguson plus the help of Anon, this is history in the making.
In case you can’t see the confederate flag in that screenshot…
Anonymous don’t play
Yeah have ya’ll read their official statement?
“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.
We Are Anonymous.
We Are Legion.
We do Not Forgive.
We do Not Forget.
Ferguson, Expect us.”
HACKERS ARE WILD AND I LOVE IT
