Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Well, that didn't take long.

Anonymous has put the Ferguson PD and the state government on notice. Their demands (and threats) are very specific, including a promise to release private information about every officer on the force, as well as taking every "web based asset" the department and state government has offline.

Forgive the shortness of this diary. The video speaks for itself.

WARNING: This video contains disturbing images. Viewer discretion is advised.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

12:48 AM PT: UPDATE FROM: ExpatGirl:

I support their demands. (1+ / 0-)

1. Do not harm protestors.

2. Introduce "Mike Brown's Law"

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 in the USA. We further demand that this new law include specific language to grant the victims of police violence the same rights and prerogatives that are already enjoyed nationwide by the victims of other violent criminals. The Equal Protection clause of the US Constitution demands nothing less.

2:48 AM PT: UPDATE: Washington Post link provided by Pluto:

Amid Ferguson protests, hacker collective Anonymous wages cyberwar

"...a group claiming to be associated with Anonymous set up a Web site to organize cyberprotests as well as a Twitter account. It released a video and put out a press release...Then, apparently unhappy with the government’s response, it made good on its word.

The Internet crashed at City Hall. E-mail systems were hit. Phones died. City officials told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch a flood of traffic targeting the city’s site “just kept coming.”

On Tuesday afternoon, Anonymous took credit. The hacktivists had done this before, perhaps most notably in Albuquerque, where riots broke out in March over the police’s involvement in 37 shootings, 23 of them fatal, since 2010 — particularly the killing of a homeless man.

Now Belmar was the one in the crosshairs. At least one hacker trolled the Internet to find information on him, the Post-Dispatch reported, in retaliation for not disclosing the name of the officer who killed Brown. Authorities decided not to identify the officer because of threats made on social media. Anonymous said Tuesday it knew the name of the shooter and was making sure it had the right person before identifying him, tweeting, “Everyone be patient, we don’t want to be wrong.”

Then tweets once directed at Belmar turned to his daughter, CBC St. Louis reported, stating “Jon Belmar, if you don’t release the officer’s name, we’re releasing your daughter’s info. You have one hour.” Anonymous eventually gave up — and it’s not clear why. As of early Wednesday morning, the group had not released the officer’s name. Many Twitterers praised the hackers throughout the day Tuesday. Still, some called them out — particularly in posts about Belmar’s family — saying: “This. Is. Creepy.”; “Do you really think that officer went out to kill someone?” and “Dear God.”
