Sharpton, ACLU, Anonymous Demand Policeman Name

From an outraged Associated Press:

Police won’t release name of officer who shot teen

By ALAN SCHER ZAGIER and DAVID A. LIEB | Aug. 13, 2014

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — The Rev. Al Sharpton pressed police Tuesday to release the name of the officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager in suburban St. Louis, and he pleaded for calm after two nights of violent protests over the young man’s death…

Yes, calming down angry crowds is what the Reverend does best. He’s made a career of it. — No, wait…

"The local authorities have put themselves in a position — hiding names and not being transparent — where people will not trust anything but an objective investigation," Sharpton said during a news conference in St. Louis where he was joined by Brown’s parents…

Like one done by Eric Holder. By the way, the Reverend also said not releasing the officer’s name would cause even more fear in the black community. Though he never explained how.

Earlier in the day, Police Chief Tom Jackson said he had decided against releasing the officer’s name Tuesday after death threats were called into police and City Hall and posted on social media. Jackson said it could be weeks before he releases the name…

Police have not disclosed the race of the officer, but witnesses said he was white. Brown was black.

Otherwise, this would not be a story.

The Ferguson police force has 53 officers, three of whom are black. Jackson said the city has had trouble recruiting and retaining black officers…

And we all know why. Because they are so racist.

Meanwhile, there is this via UK’s Guardian:

Michael Brown shooting: civil rights groups may sue to obtain officer’s name

Jon Swaine in Ferguson, Missouri [sic] | 12 August 2014

Civil liberties campaigners threatened on Tuesday to sue the police department of Ferguson, Missouri, for the name of the police officer who shot dead unarmed teenager Michael Brown, arguing that city authorities were breaking the law by keeping it secret…

“We are closely monitoring the situation to ensure that there is transparency,” Tony Rothert, the ACLU’s legal director in Missouri, told the Guardian. “If there is not, then we will get involved. I would be confident in going to court to get it if it is not made public in short order.” …

After all, the officer has no civil liberties, such a the right to safety. Whereas their is definitely a civil right to threaten, stalk and even kill a police officer if he offends you.

On Tuesday, members of the hacktivist group Anonymous posted St Louis police chief Jon Belmar’s home address and telephone number online and threatened to publish information about his daughter unless the officer’s name was released within the hour. The threat was later withdrawn…

We don’t know why the ACLU and those loveable scamps from Anonymous have felt the need to threaten the police chief’s home and family. Anonymous claims to already know the name of the officer in question. And they are also doing their best to shut down Ferguson’s internet, to help their fellow criminals and shakedown artists run rampant.

From the Washington Post:

A group claiming to be associated with the hacking collective Anonymous said Tuesday that it knew the name of the officer and was working to be sure it had the right person before identifying him. This group also said it had launched cyberattacks on the city of Ferguson’s Web sites following the police response to looting on Sunday night.

Ferguson’s site and e-mail systems were both hit with cyberattacks that appeared to be continuing into Monday evening, Pam Hylton, the assistant city manager, told The Post. …

Isn’t it wonderful that these anonymous thieves and shakedown artists have decided to become our moral guardians?
