Video: Hackers Threaten To Shut Down PD's Website

January 01, 2013  | 

VIDEO: Graphic Calif. Police Shooting

The hacker group Anonymous threatened to shut down the Manteca (Calif.) Police Department's website if the agency doesn't remove an officer who used deadly force, reports the Manteca Bulletin.

The threat came via an eeire YouTube clip with a computer-generated voice running 2 minutes, 46 seconds. The video, which was posted Dec. 18, demands the removal of Officer Josh Moody.

The officer fatally shot parolee Ernesto Duenez Jr. on June 8, 2011. In early December, attorneys for the Duenez family released graphic footage of the shooting in which Officer Moody shot Duenez 11 times.

The shooting was ruled legally justified by the San Joaquin County District Attorney's investigators based on their review of evidence including a dash cam in the officer's vehicle that captured the shooting. A $25 million lawsuit is pending in federal court, reports the Bulletin.

I'm a retired cop. I watched the dash cam footage a half dozen times. It leaves questions but only tells part of the story. What was the suspects history? One or more attacks with weapons? Why was he stopped....the patrol car was obviously waiting for him. What kind of knife did he have? Above all, though, Anonymous can go straight to hell. They are making threats like cyber terrorists and if they don't use their intelligence for good they can use it for making license plates.

"The shooting was ruled legally justified by the San Joaquin County District Attorney's investigators based on their review of evidence INCLUDING [emphasis mine] a dash cam in the officer's vehicle that captured the shooting." Questions raised are irrelevant. I despise seeing officers involved in shootings that were found to be justified being tried AGAIN in the court of dumbass public opinion based on video recordings with zero context.

These cyber terrorists are really playing hardball. Next they'll threaten to interfere with the departments DirectTV signal. Why are these juvenile acting jerks given any print at all?

Scotty... I wish we still put inmates to work. At least out here in Colorado its a damn concrete country club. Maybe if there was some actual punishment beyond the loss of freedom, there would be less recidivism. As for Anon? Crash my website, I'm a cop, I'm not selling stuff on eBay here. We will do our jobs with or without it.

Yep, go ahead and hack the website. Who cares. The only people you are inconveniencing is the public. There are so many other ways depatments can communicate now, like Facebook, Twitter, etc. Anonymous your power is waining. Not to mention why potest something when you don't have all the facts.
