Hacker Group ANONYMOUS TARGETS Pepper-Spraying UC Davis Cop

" Hacktivists want cops to taste 'the brutality and misery they serve on us'




:smoke:.....F@*k With The Bull and You Get The Horn.


" The UC Davis police officer filmed casually pepper-spraying passive student protesters is the latest target of the computer hacking collective Anonymous. A new 10-minute video attributed to the shadowy "hacktivist" group threatens the officer directly and makes public his personal contact information - including his cell phone number and an alleged home address. The voicemail on the working cell number for Lt. John Pike was full Tuesday.



"Dear Officer John Pike, we are Anonymous. Your information is now public domain," a computer-generated voice narrating the Anonymous video states. "Expect our full wrath," the voice continues as viral video of the Friday incident plays in the background. "Anonymous seeks to avenge all protestersWe are going to make you squeal like a pig."


The ominous message, which ends with a photo of Pike and the sounds of shrieking pigs, makes no excuse for exposing Pike to potential reprisals. "We have no problem targeting police and releasing their information even if it puts them at risk because we want them to experience just a taste of the brutality and misery they serve us on an everyday basis," it says. UC Davis authorities were aware of the Anonymous threat Tuesday, a source in the campus police department told the Daily News.

1. Wondering if Pike has any young children and if traumatizing them is acceptable.
I'm just wondering about that.

2. "Policemen are hiding behind the skirts of little girls"-Joan Crawford, Blue Oyster Cult
I hope no one would do anything that might harm his family. Definitely something for anyone to keep in mind though. If you're the 1% or a cop and you're screwing over people with the attitude that no one can do anything about it, you may find out that's not the case.

21. +1 for BOC reference!
I've waited years to reference Catholic schoolgirls throwing away their mascara and chaining themselves to the axles of big Mac trucks... the opportunity has yet to present itself.

3. Please consider the fact that the people he attacked are someone's children.
I hope I am not coming off as argumentative as that is not my intention. It is just that as a mother myself, I almost feel as though those kids sitting on the ground being sprayed like roaches are my children. It really caused a visceral reaction for me, and I think for many other People.

5. I appreciate your point but am sure you can agree that harm to yet more young people...
...isn't the answer.

I do understand and share the immediate urge to hurt him and not give a thought to the collateral damage.

But the cycle has to stop. The man needs to face consequences.

20. what is important is to create a deterrence against police brutality
There are some people on this forum who argue in favor of bringing guns to demonstrations and using the threat of lethal with firearms as a deterrent. I frankly find that approach dangerous, insane and simply suicidal. It would be hard for me to imagine anything more counterproductive.

However if police are made aware that there are consequences for their actions such as the name and shame exposure of their names, addresses, phone numbers and other information is circulated across the media - a powerful and effective deterrent is created without resorting to counterproductive violent techniques.

As far as the question of whether this might hurt the feeling of Officer Pike's or Officer Bologna's family members - well it probably will. Just as when a person is arrested for any crime or even suspected of any crime and their personal information is in the newspapers and in other media. Imagine how upsetting it must be to the family members of someone accused of being a sexual predator. I suspect that would really be disturbing to a child if the accused predator is their father and the story is in the newspapers and on the television - even if the accused is later exonerated. In comparison exposing a police officer to public scorn for committing acts of brutality would be a lot less humiliating. No doubt they would be considered heroes in some circles. I'm sure they would get a rapturous applause at a Republican presidential primary debate

Still, I simply cannot think of a more reasonable and less violent way to create a deterrent against police brutality.

26. agreed. the young are innocent. all of them. THis sucks all the way around.

6. Like any other force of nature, Anonymous is here to stay
Pike is the one who should be acting in the best interest of his children if he has any. Pike is accountable and if his superiors let him off with a gentle slap on the wrist then maybe the rest of us shouldn't.

What do you think Pike did to those children sitting on the ground, if not traumatize them? He had no qualms about hurting innocent children.

I can't get worked up over a man who is probably just as abusive to his wife and kids. I'm guessing, of course, and jumping to conclusions but having lived with an abusive man I know that bullies are abusive to everyone they can be abusive to. They're usually the kind that kiss up and kick down.

7. Two wrongs... Pike's children are OUR children. That's a pretty universal point of view...
...among enlightened cultures.

Any harm that our actions brings to innocents will, eventually, harm us all.

Peace.

12. And they will, without the "help" of angry citizens, I think.
And I feel for them.

Sad.

17. His children will be the next in line for brutality


if they haven't been brutalized by this man already.

The stand against police brutality needs to be zero tolerance, just as we have been made to live in a zero tolerance state.

His children are in less danger - as is our entire society - when injustice is addressed with a strong show of public sentiment against it.

If he is concerned for his family, he can be inconvenienced by moving them somewhere else. That will not be as harsh a sentence on his children as the pepper spray was to many people's children at his hands.

They were innocent too.

9. We don't even know that he has children. I merely make an observation about consequences.
Inviting a mature discussion.

I enjoy such things and would hope that people would consider some universal truths about this matter.

Others might prefer to dismiss them.

And that's fine.

Peace.

14. Some people have violent fantasies looking for an excuse - just like Pike

There are people who are always itching to do someone harm.

The way they work this out is to convince themselves they are on the side of God, Justice, whatever.

Then, they can do violent things and feel good about it.

They are no different from Pike himself. Just assholes looking for an excuse to do harm, or cheerleaders for others doing it.

24. An excellent, if contentious, point.
I think it's largely true.

Violence begets more violence, regardless of any perception of righteousness on the part of the person committing same.

22. there are a BUNCH of people whose children were definitely traumatized by Pike.
that definitely happened.


anything else is speculation......


if ONE cop thinks twice going forward before brutalizing a peaceful person, then Anonymous has done more to end the brutality than any government entity in the US designed to protect it's citizens.



it's not like anyone ELSE is stepping up to protect their rights..........

23. Teach your children well...
It's not just a song... people really do need to consider their own children before doing something heinously egregious to human beings... you can't let a subhuman off the hook for fear of his children... he didn't consider them, and that is his job. Perhaps this will give a free clue card to other potential barbarians.

You, who are on the road must have a code that you can live by.
And so become yourself because the past is just a good bye.
Teach your children well, their father's hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams, the one they picked, the one you're known by.
Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you you would cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

And you, of the tender years can't know the fears that your elders grew by,
And so please help them with your years, they seek the truth before they can die.
Teach your parents well, their children's hell will slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams, the one they picked, the one you're known by.
Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

28. I must have seen somewhere or read somewhere
that everything is off limits or go beyond as far as the eye can see, can't
remember where I saw it, as you can see I can't even get the wording right.

29. I doubt he does, the address posted for him is an apartment.
Single family homes are rather expensive in Davis, but certainly manageable on his unusually high salary. It's also very common for people who work in Davis but want more house for their money to commute from less expensive nearby communities like Woodland and Dixon. Doing so would actually be much less expensive than living in an apartment in Davis.

It would be highly unusual for a family with children to live in one of Davis' many apartment complexes, because they tend to be full of college students, with all the noise and drinking that goes along with that.

4. I just watched the Anonymous video,
he actually went back and forth repeatedly apraying them. shaking up his little canister ... very meticulous about getting them all. I wonder if he was whistling while he worked.

Sociopath SCUM.

Not saying that excuses them, and Nuremberg defense aside, fear of retribution for insubordination might weigh in the equation.

35. Judging from the bars on his shirt, he's probably their boss. That doesn't excuse
them from acting oblivious to this act. Overall, I imagine that most of these cops are pulling in some healthy overtime pay to suppress these protests giving them a paycheck windfall at the end of each week. I'm curious to know if police association donations have risen since OWS began their protests. If so, who are these new donors? Could these donors be bank/wallstreet shell organizations?

16. Am I the only one who's unimpressed with Anonymous?
I'm deeply impressed by the people who are on the streets, fighting this fight, and I suppose that in some small way, Anonymous is contributing, but by and large, they seem to be little more than pranksters. Plus, Pike's personal information was released almost immediately after the pepper spray incident.

Over and over they make these dramatized threats that come to nothing.

Why do they still get so much press?

No email for you, Mr. Pike. Oh, your internet connection never seems to work, why is that?

34. Shouldn't Pike be a little afraid?
And for that matter all cops who commit these brutal acts.

They live somewhere, they have families. I'm non-violent but when I watych these videos they make me very angry. What about people who live near this guy? who know of him? He has to live in a community.

They perhaps think they are invulnerable, but when they are alone these policemen are vulnerable. He couldn't even run fast. Sooner or later bad things are likely to start happening to these police. It seems odd to me that they appear to not be deterred at all by the risks they face in riling up so many folk. Especially in a country with hundreds of millions of guns in citizen hands.

He also risks the safety of his family through this immoral act a do other police.

Obviously it must be like a dream come true for Pike and his ilk to commit some real thuggery, but if I was them I'd be a little worried about the dark. Karma.

It puzzles me. Perhaps they don't truly get the internet thing?
