Countdown: Ferguson?

The hacktavist group Anonymous is claiming to have obtained government electronic documents and files related to the Michael Brown shooting and Ferguson, MO.

IJR: Anonymous Claims It Has Hacked Into Govt. Info on Officer Wilson That May Lead to Ferguson Riots

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson
The information that has been release is hardly surprising: it has all been speculated about before. However, there is a new wrinkle, Anonymous has put a date sure to the release of the Grand Jury findings: On or about Monday, November 10, 2014.

What is different about the Anonymous leak is its definitive tone. They state that Officer Wilson will not be indicted, and the police and jails are preparing for widespread civil unrest. Governor Nixon has alerted the National Guard.

I'm not sure I completely believe Anonymous. Okay, I don't. The above information is presented with that caveat in mind. Still, we urge everyone to be mindful of the possibilities in the first two weeks of November, and prepare accordingly.
