Anonymous says hello NSA, FBI, DHS, ATF and DEA online...

Since George "W" Bush Jr. took office, your online agents have been "gathering information" on people who did not commit any crimes. I haven't read anything online about any arrests for cyber-crime except one Anontmous Hactivist, who was not stealing money. Still, he was somehow associated with "terrorism" and sentenced to an unbelievable amount of time in jail.

Jailed 'Anonymous' Hacktivist Was Watchlisted By FBI Before Arrest

The revelation 'shines a rare light on the expanding definitions of terrorism used by U.S. law enforcement agencies'

The FBI placed Anonymous 'hacktivist' Jeremy Hammond on a terrorism watchlist more than a year before he was arrested for alleged cyberattacks, the Daily Dot reported on Monday.

Hammond is currently serving a 10-year federal prison sentence for his part in a series of high-profile hacks carried out under the Anonymous banner. One of the largest of those breaches in which Hammond played a leading role was the release of five million emails from the private intelligence firm Stratfor, which revealed that the company had been spying on human rights defenders at the behest of corporations and governments.

The Guardian reports:

He was prosecuted under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA). There was never any suggestion during the proceedings that he was involved in any activities related to terrorism or terrorist organizations.

Why do our tax dollars go to agencies that spy on citizens and arrest cyber-protestors, instead of arresting criminals who create malicious websites designed to screw up our computers?

I think if other international agencies observing the ineptness of these online agents had a song it would be this one:



If Anonymous had a song, it would be this:
