The masked narrator said: “People have been fed up with such corruption and violence from an organization that guarantees their safety.” Anonymous insisted in his message that the police force exists to “fulfill criminal The determination of the will of the class “.
In this way, the anonymous organization established a clear mission: to provide ventilation for America ’s dirty police brutality.

We are activist.
We are justice.
We are legion.

On Saturday night 05/30, various rumors were circulating on the Internet, speculating that Anonymous had successfully shut down the website of the Minneapolis Police Department in retaliation for the murder of George Floyd.
Indeed: According to reports from multiple users, the Minneapolis Police website and the Minneapolis Mayor website were inaccessible on Saturday night.

In fact, it all started (05/28 three days after Floyd was murdered), when a Facebook page claiming to be associated with an anonymous person posted a video warning the Minneapolis police that “it Many of its crimes are exposed to the world. ” And, “George ’s Floyd was killed this week … it ’s the tip of the iceberg. In many high-profile cases, the tip of the iceberg died in the hands of officials in his state.
