Hacker group Anonymous announced that it would support the protests with the video it published and threatened the US administration. After this announcement, Anonymous hacked the radio and websites of the Minneapolis police force.
Demonstrations that began to protest against the death of blackman George Floyd strangled by police Derek Chauvin on Monday in Minneapolis, the US, turned into a nationwide riot. In many cities, National Guards were deployed and curfews were declared, but this was not enough to prevent protests. On the other hand, the hacker group Anonymous was also involved in the protests and hacked the radio and websites of the Minneapolis police force.
Anonymous threatened racist police violence with a video he posted on social media and threatened the US administration by saying, “Take the necessary steps regarding the police who killed GeorgeFloyd, or wait for our steps.”
