i remember the NYPD cops doing this in the 80's when there was so much clashes with the police, they did it in the tompkins square riot and even then it was a tactic known to activists of the 60's
Madame Filth's blog
well ladies, the day is here. the day of so many operations.
Anonymous has released this statement about their actions tomorrow.targets: fox, facebook, banks (some say mexican drug cartels, but i haven't seen anything from them that confirms this) they advise us to get a big tub o' popcorn and enjoy the show. data dumps will start at 9 am, and continue for 12 hours.
oh i love theatrics! i don't know what will happen but i have a feeling i will love it!
(for the record, i have never been in love with this whole 99% 1% thing. it makes for great hyperbole, but it's not entirely accurate, and gives the impression that the 99% is a bloc with no diversity. but hey, what do i know?)
i'm reposting a blog from the great matt taibbi, with whom i have burdened you many times because many times i sit here reading and saying "yes, yes, yes" reading his shit, and when that happens, i share with you ladies.
as if you needed more insight, more convincing, more understanding of why it is the occupiers are fighting, why it resonates with nearly everyone, here he is:

Wall Street Isn't Winning – It's Cheating
I was at an event on the Upper East Side last Friday night when I got to talking with a salesman in the media business. The subject turned to Zuccotti Park and Occupy Wall Street, and he was chuckling about something he'd heard on the news.
"I hear [Occupy Wall Street] has a CFO," he said. "I think that's funny."
"Okay, I'll bite," I said. "Why is that funny?"
"Well, I heard they're trying to decide what bank to put their money in," he said, munching on hors d'oeuvres. "It's just kind of ironic."
i saw this as soon as it went viral but deliberately didn't post it because it's too horrid. i will post the link that brought it to my attention through Anonymous. but i warn you, do NOT watch the youtube video, you will get the point reading the article, and no one at this point needs to witness what this courageous woman secretly videoed, then posted online. the link is Anonymous' doxing of the judge, and their doxes almost always give a brief explanation as to why. the other link in there is ok, it has no pictures or video.
I think i'm gonna go ahead and switch to a credit union, even though I'm presently with a small community bank with good service. Here's why: I've been there 15 years or so. I've tried switching to larger banks that say they can offer more, but always end up swindling several hundred bucks out of me, but since I'm so lazy I don't close my first account, I just habitually go back to using that.
take a swig and get a load of this:
mere hours ago i made a crude, though 100% sincere proposition to colbert. this comes up and i'm not above considering a colbert/coulter three-way, but it's just too much irony. even for me.
an Occupier was found dead in his tent monday.
not sure what misinformation will be disseminated, how this tragedy will be construed, but i thought i'd get it up here first. he was a street poet. he was loved by the occupiers, but i'm getting the impression that he was peripherally involved in the protests. will clarify if new information comes to light. no foul play is suspected, it appears to be "natural causes," though i have no info on cause of death or what his given name is. he's known as Street Poet. a very young guy.
