When the system doesn't demand accountability, it leaves a vacuum that Anonymous likes to fill:

FERGUSON, Mo. ( – “Anonymous,” a group of “Hacktivists,” hacked the City of Ferguson’s website Sunday night.

According to officials, none of the city’s e-mails were working Monday morning. Anticipating a problem, the mayor of Ferguson had the IT Department take down all personal information from the site on Saturday.

On Sunday, “Operation Ferguson” tweeted that “Anonymous” would only launch cyber-attacks in Ferguson in direct response to any police abuse of protesters. “Operation Ferguson” has since been suspended from Twitter.
