Mall of America Security Catfished Black Lives Matter Activists, Documents Show

By Lee Fang @lhfang



Documents obtained by The Intercept indicate that security staff at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota used a fake Facebook account to monitor local Black Lives Matter organizers, befriend them, and obtain their personal information and photographs without their knowledge.

Evidence of the fake Facebook account was found in a cache of files provided by the Mall of America to Bloomington officials after a large Black Lives Matter event at the mall on December 20 protesting police brutality. The files included briefs on individual organizers, with screenshots that suggest that much of the information was captured using a Facebook account for a person named “Nikki Larson.”

Metadata from some of the documents lists the software that created them as belonging to “Sam Root” at the “Mall of America.” A Facebook account for a Sam Root lists his profession as “Intelligence Analyst at Mall of America.”



The fake Larson account featured a profile photo that a Google reverse image search shows is identical to a photo associated with a woman who is Facebook friends with Root.

For years I've been saying that the police in this country are ALL out of countrol...

It really disheartens me to point out that I told you so. I'm not in the mood for that "not all cops" bullshit. Because the so-call "good" cops, as we have all seen, do nothing more than to back up the bad ones while they rabbit punch submissive victims of police violence.

My Bad Cop, No Donut posts have all become redundant, which is why I haven't done as many lately as I've done in the past.

There's enough shit out there where I could, not only post several police misconduct articles EVERY FREAKING DAY, I could pick an actual theme for all of the posts.

Drug use and dealing, domestic violence, child abuse and molestation, use of force... You name it. It's at the point where I'm more wary about the cops than I am the criminals, for obvious reasons.

I don't have an answer for this, no solutions, only piecemeal suggestions, like putting every single LEO in the country under uninterrupted video and audio surveillance for every single moment that they're on duty.

Ordinary people, including previously uninvolved white people, are going to have to rise up and demand that cops are held accountable for their abuse. POCs have been telling everyone about how bad the police are for decades, we've had atrocity on video after atrocity on video for as long as cameras have been trained on the police and still much of the country couldn't be bothered to give a fuck.

The people have been very patient about this and will continue to show restraint against law enforcement. I doubt at this point that cops will be gunned down in the street for no good reason, as the cops have done to so many people. It just won't happen, no war on our streets.

But I do expect more people to take to the streets, organize online, address their municipal entities and advocate for change. There is just too much at stake than to just sit idly by and wait until the next unarmed person to be murdered by a cop.

More and more people are waking up. It's time to be on the right side of justice and history. It's time to make a change.

Hey, the cop who beat that man in Inkster, MI and planted drugs in his car was FIRED today. http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/28774423/inkster-officer-fired-after-beating-caught-on-camera

That's just a drop in the bucket, but a welcome one. Hopefully he won't get hired some place else.

Don't bogart that fusilli...

For all the Better Call Saul fans in the house...

This sounds serious...

Happy Easter!

How Canadians are hatched...

Uncle Walter Warned Us...

Happy Easter, Pug Lovers!

What's up with those trigger happy German cops?
