Boston Police react to Anonymous hacking with sarcastic video

Published

on

Members of the Boston Police Department have released a sarcastic video responding to an attack on their website by the hacktivist group Anonymous.

On Feb. 3, Anonymous had replaced the BPDNews.com with a message criticizing their crackdown on Occupy Boston protests. A video for KRS-One’s 1993 song “Sound of da Police” was also included on the hacked page.

“Normally I sleep pretty well,” Deputy Superintendent Colm Lydon deadpans in the video. “But since the site went down, I haven’t slept a wink.”

“In the days after the hacking, fans of the page struggled to make sense of a world without BPDnews.com,” a narrator says.

Another officer recalled hearing “Sound of da Police” for the first time when the site was hacked: “I was out running like I do every morning and I came in, I showered, I put on the web page to look at all the positive news and all the great events we’re doing working with the community and to my dismay, I hear this terrible voice.”

“Well, my reaction was, ‘Why would anybody want to destroy a perfectly good KRS-One song?'” Deputy Superintendent William Gross adds.

The video shows a speaker, who is black, talking about systemic racism.

"They have found ways to cage our babies, separate families, mistreat and abuse us," the woman says before she was interrupted by Bennett.

"What about abortion?" Bennett exclaims.

Published

on

White House aide Kellyanne Conway on Sunday insisted that Democrats do not have a "constitutional basis" to embarrass President Donald Trump by conducting an impeachment inquiry.

Conway made the remarks while speaking to FOX News Sunday guest host Bill Hemmer.

"Complete nonsense," she said when asked about the impeachment proceedings. "They need to get a messaging meeting and they need to read the constitution of the Democratic Party."

"Americans, the Congress, they work for you," Conway continued, talking over the FOX host. "And they're wasting your money and your time trying to impeach a president where there are no high crimes and misdemeanors."
