A $4,000 reward has been offered for the identity of the police officer who may have been responsible for the injuries sustained by former Iraq war veteran Scott Olsen in the Oakland protests last week.Speculation is running rampant online and Anonymous has already provided a name and home address for the individual currently suspected.
I’ve received several documents and links with highly sensitive information directly from Anonymous via temporary, expired email addresses.
SCMagazine has some of the Anonymous links I’ve received and quotes the movement:
“‘The time has come to retaliate against Oakland police via all non-violent means, beginning with ‘doxing’ of individual officers and particularly higher-ups involved in the department’s conduct of late,” read an Anonymous statement, posted to Pastebin.
An Oakland police spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment.
Doxing references the public release of information about individuals.”
It looks like the public, and the Occupy movement, will continue pursuing the individual’s identity. In the meantime, a group called #OccupyMARINES has updated their list of demands and called on members of all military branches to lend their protection and support.
In addition #OccupyMARINES has added its voice to the cry for Oakland Mayor Jean Quan’s resignation.
