Releases Police Recordings (Listen Here!) From Day Of Ferguson, Missouri Shooting
Members of the international hacker collective Anonymous have claimed they have identified the Ferguson, Missouri law enforcement officer involved in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager killed on Saturday, which sparked days of protest and raised racial tensions.
“We have the name of the shooter,” the Anonymous group member tweeted under the Twitter name Operation Ferguson. “We just can’t verify. We need to either talk to witnesses or get a second leak source.”
Michael Brown, 18-year-old, was shot multiple times by a local police officer on Saturday, which happened around 1:40 p.m. Brown’s body was then left on the sidewalk for hours. He was killed following an alleged altercation with the Ferguson police. Since then, the police have been accused of racism and become the focus of retribution by an angry public.
