A lot of this week in civil liberties has been about the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, USA. Police troops fired tear gas on a television crew. This mirrors the ongoing web censorship efforts. The governments around the world are reacting the exact same way today as they did when the printing press arrived 500 years ago. There isnâ€™t really anything new under the sun. Then, as now, they were used to telling people what was true and what wasnâ€™t, telling whatever story that fit whatever it was they wanted to do. â€œCannabis is dangerous. Tobacco is not harmful at all. Oh, and there are weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.â€ When police troops in Ferguson launched tear gas grenades at a television team from Al-Jazeera, that is a symptom of the exact same thing as web censorship: governments are losing control of the story. Governments can no longer invent whatever truth that fits what they want to happen. Police firing at press is actually something very rare â€“ even in the worst of war zones, itâ€™s a rare occurrence that press teams are deliberately targeted, and yet, this was precisely what happened in Ferguson, USA. The reason is the exact same as for web censorship and mass surveillance: The governments and the people working for them are attacking anybody who exposes what they do, using whatever power they have to do so. Tear gas grenades against a TV crew may have been both overviolent and counterproductive, but itâ€™s still the same thing. Itâ€™s exactly what happened when the printing press arrived, and the penalties for using a printing press â€“ thereby circumventing the truthtellers of that time â€“ gradually increased to the death penalty (France, 1535). Not even the death penalty worked to deter people from using the printing press to tell their version of events to the world, which more often than not contradicted the official version. The cat was out of the bag. As it is now. Governments and police still donâ€™t understand that everybody is a broadcaster â€“ attacking a TV crew was futile in the first place. During the initial, hopeful months of the Arab Spring, a lot of photos circulated of young people gathering for protests. What was interesting about the photos were that they were taken with mobile phones, but also that they showed a lot of other people at the protest taking photos of the same crowd at the same time with their own mobile phone. Thus, the photos of the ongoing revolution contained instructions in themselves for how to perpetuate the revolution â€“ take pictures of crowds defying the edicts and dictums. This is why itâ€™s so puzzling that the police even bother to give special treatment to people from television stations and newspapers. Strictly speaking, theyâ€™re not necessary to get the story out anymore, even if they still have some follower advantage for the most part. â€œPolice are being transformed from protecting the public into protecting government from the publicâ€, as @directorblue just tweeted. That could be said about pretty much anything concerning the net, too â€” from oppressive applications of copyright monopoly law to strangling net innovations or giving telcos monopolies that prevent the netâ€™s utility. The attacks on the public by police troops in Ferguson, attacks from the copyright industry against those who want a free net, and web censorship by governments are all different sides of the same story. And all of this has happened before. Last time this happened, it took 200 years of civil war to settle the dust and agree that the printing press may have been a nice invention after all. Can we please not repeat that mistake? http://torrentfreak.com/ferguson-attacks-web-censorship-parts-story-140817/
The hacking collective publishes hours of alleged police dispatch tapes on Twitter and YouTube from the day unarmed teenager Michael Brown was shot to death by police in a St. Louis suburb. Speculation has been circling around police procedures during and after the shooting of an unarmed teenager last weekend in Ferguson, Mo. Now, Anonymous is apparently trying to shine a light on police involved in the incident. The hacking group allegedly got its hands on police dispatch tapes. On Wednesday, Anonymous released a slew of details from police dispatch calls from the day of the shooting on Twitter and posted hours of tape to YouTube. "#Anonymous has obtained audio files of police dispatch and EMS during the #MikeBrown shooting," Anonymous boasted from its @TheAnonMessage Twitter account. Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager, was shot multiple times by a local police officer on Saturday. The shooting happened around 1:40 p.m. and Brown's body was left on the sidewalk for hours afterward. The Ferguson police have since been accused of racism and become the focus of intense criticism and violent protests. St. Louis County Police have taken over the investigation into the Brown shooting. The name of the officer involved in the shooting hasn't been released. According to the dispatch tapes released by Anonymous, the police allegedly requested assistance for crowd control before mentioning any shooting or calling in for emergency medical services. The dispatcher in the tapes also mentions that the department got information about the shooting from the news, rather than from police at the scene. It's unclear whether the tapes are authentic. CNET has contacted the St. Louis County Police to verify their authenticity and for comment. We will update the story when we get more information. Anonymous has hacked into police departments in the past. Sometimes the group looks for information to publish. Other times it just wants to take down police websites -- as it did in Utah and Illinois in 2012. In June 2011, a branch of Anonymous, LulzSec, released emails and other information from the Arizona Department of Public Safety in response to the department's "anti-immigrant" policies. http://www.cnet.com/news/anonymous-hacks-into-ferguson-police-site-for-dispatch-tapes/
Hackers have made the St. Louis County Police their new target. The police department's website has been offline since Wednesday and continued to be down on Thursday. The police haveconfirmed to several news outlets that they are under "some sort of cyber-attack" and their e-mail has also been down. Presumably, the hackers involved in this distributed-denial-of-service attack are protesting the St. Louis County Police's involvement in the killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and the demonstrations that have ensued. Brown was shot multiple times by a local police officer on Saturday. The shooting happened around 1:40 p.m. and Brown's body was left on the sidewalk for hours afterward. In the wake of the shooting, police have declined to name the officer involved. The Ferguson police have since been accused of racism and become the focus of intense criticism and violent protests. On Wednesday, a group claiming to be affiliated with Anonymous announced it had hacked the St. Louis County Police to get dispatch tapes from the day of the shooting. The group released alleged details from police dispatch calls on its @TheAnonMessage Twitter account and posted hours of tape to YouTube. Then, earlier on Thursday, the group said it found the name of the officer involved and tweeted out the name of a man. The St. Louis County Police quickly tweeted back that the person identified "is not even an officer with Ferguson or St. Louis County PD. Do not release more info on this random citizen." Since this incident, the @TheAnonMessage Twitter account has been suspended. When CNET contacted Twitter for more information, a company spokesperson said, "We don't comment on individual accounts." The back-and-forth between the hackers and police shows how quickly protests and strife can be taken from the streets to the Internet. http://www.cnet.com/news/st-louis-police-website-suffers-ddos-attack/
