Anonymous offer $1,000.00 reward for name of officer who threw flash-bang at crowd helping S. Olsen
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 04:07 PM by Fire Walk With Me
"These are among the most disturbing and criminal acts to be have been proven on the part of US police since NYPD officers were outed as having routinely planted drugs on suspects earlier this month. 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."

As such, the group is asking supporters for assistance in doxing the OPD, while offering a $1,000 reward, "no questions asked," for the name of the officer who threw a flashbang at the injured Iraqi vet.

1. Could a donation be taken up to sweeten the pot? n/t
It's be cool to see that reward climb up over ten grand or even more..

4. May not have been OPD. Could have been Fremont, Hayward,
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 04:14 PM by EFerrari
San Mateo or Alameda Co Sheriff's Deputy, Mill Valley or SFPD. Oakland deserves the blame but the many others who cooperated shouldn't be overlooked.

7. I think a Sherriff deputy threw the grenade
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 04:30 PM by libertypirate
The grenade looked to be from a group of Sheriff deputies in the video. Look at their riot shields, some say police some say sheriff.
About 45 seconds into the link above.

3. Won't it come out in the investigation?
I hardly see the need for a bounty at this point. They guy's career is most likely over and he'll probably be charged with a crime if his actions warrant it.

5. Doubt it...
there is a blue code of silence. My guess is that cop will never see justice.

16. yes, because no police officers ever go to jail for their criminal behavior
This will not be a good thing in the long run. It's best to be left to the state or the FBI, who will no doubt take an interest given OPDs track record of late

23. Are you serious?
The police officer that gunned down John L. Williams in Seattle - in broad daylight and in front of five witnesses - didn't spend one minute in jail. Did I mention that Mr. Williams had his back turned to the officer when the officer started shooting?

The police officer that pepper sprayed multiple unarmed women in New York City participating in Occupy Wall Street lost 10 vacation days and got a desk job. Oooh. That'll teach him, won't it?

State and FBI won't give a shit about what happened at Occupy Oakland. Nobody will do one minute of time for the assault on the Iraq vet, either. If I'm wrong, I'm more than happy to scrape together some cash and make a donation to the ACLU in his name.

6. At best, he'll lose a few days of vacation pay.
And that's if he becomes so infamous his name plays on all the cable news channels like Tony Baloney...

9. Without the reward, this will go away like yesterday's news.
The Oakland police do not have a good reputation in the first place and you expect an internal investigation to find and deal with this cop?
The reward can only help. Let's see how big the reward pot gets.

27. Retaliation from Anonymous = ....
Hacked FaceBook pages...

Many pizzas delivered to the accused's house...

Obscenity laced phone calls and inquiries of "do you have Battle Toad?" at all hours of the night...

Burning bags of dog shit left on the doorstep...

Photoshoped images of the accused's face super-imposed on tranny on tranny (trap) porn...

35. Not too up on actual events, are you?


Ask HBGary, Sony, and SF BART how 'harmless' Anonymous is.

Maybe they'll help illustrate the term 'royally fucked with' for you.


In the meanwhile, all the above forms of harassment are fine options as well.

13. It shines a light on the person.
Cockroaches don't like the light, and neither do people who do things against the public good. Just publishing the name will has a startling effect on police tactics. No person wants their kids to know that they do awful things to innocent people.

15. And if death threats are made on this officer's life
do you think his kids or family will be affected by that?

Once his name is out there, via this method, who will be held accountable if someone does something stupid, claiming to be associated with OWS or worse yet, IS associated with OWS?

hardly comparable to an act by a single police officer

18. LOL. You've visited our planet before haven't you?
It doesn't work that way. Punishment will ONLY be meted out in the amount necessary to blunt the public's anger at the act. Usually this amount = 0, due to the short attention span of the people angry, or by the PTB successfully concealing the culprit's identity. It is of course the latter point that "Anonymous" wishes to address.

37. Police can arrest and charge you for aiding and abetting a criminal.
The police who are not turning in their criminal co-worker are aiding and abetting him.

19. Didn't they remove the guy from operational duty already?
I thought I read something along those lines, that he was removed and the incident was being investigated the same way a shooting with a 'regular' firearm is investigated.

What will they do with the name? Threaten the guy? Frighten his family? How does that help?

26. Provide an example to the police that the blue wall cannot always protect them
and as such should be an incentive to behave more responsibly.

29. I don't agree with that as a premise or a tactic. It sounds thuggish and bullying to me.
It's not what "democracy" looks like.

38. I have little interest in "democracy", I am into forms of actual democracy and models of
self determination, when we have that such tactics are not required but unfortunately, as you astutely point out, we only have a "democracy" or the illusion of choice and little self determination as our national policies are dictated under the cover of our sham "democracy" from corporate interests and the ultra wealthy predator class.

Power without accountability is a waste dump for officers of the peace, "democracy" is unable and/or unwilling to remedy this so true democratic accountability is one of the better options available to make sure those pay to protect and serve are held to just such a standard.

34. I dunno, but Anonymous was the first to ID the pepper spraying Officer Bologna in NYC.
They posted his full name, street address, and phone number in retaliation for pepper spraying female protesters who were unarmed and non-violent who weren't provoking such a response.

36. He was pulled offline toute suite, too. Now he's relegated to "Special Projects"
in his home neighborhood.

He's got one more year before he hits his thirty. He's as good as gone.
