Hacker Group Anonymous Hacks KKK Accounts, Shows Members Faces

November 17, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Hacktivist group Anonymous has hacked several KKK accounts, including their official Twitter account, and Facebook profiles/pages of several members. They have released a photo showing 13 Missouri KKK members with their hoods off, and identified some of them via their Facebook profiles. This campaign to expose the violent white supremacists has been dubbed: Operation KKK.

Anonymous claims this is in response to threats of violence issued by the KKK if the Grand Jury hearing chooses to indict Officer Darren Wilson.

Those who stand on the side of slain 18 year old Michael Brown are promising mass protests in many major cities throughout the United States. Law Enforcement agencies around the country are creating plans to deal with social unrest. Gun sales have risen sharply in Missouri in the last 101 days since the death of Brown.

The issue racism and law enforcement is extremely volatile right now, as two Florida police officers were recently fired for being KKK members.
