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.

Watch this video from BPD’s YouTube channel, uploaded Feb. 8, 2012.

The man, who was wearing a Make America Great Again hat, made the comments at a diner in Columbia Wednesday morning.

"I'm a Republican and a Trump supporter," he said. "But we have an operation chaos going on and all over the state we're encouraging Republicans to go vote for Bernie because we believe Bernie is the best worst candidate in contrasting his socialism against President Trump and his capitalism."

Nevada GOP activist reveals how he ‘caucused for Bernie’ to help Trump win: ‘It would be a dream election’

Conservative activist Chuck Muth said that he temporarily switched parties to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in the Nevada caucuses.

Muth, who spoke to the Las Vegas Journal-Review while wearing a red Keep America Great hat, explained that he had crossed over to “vote for the weakest candidate possible of the Democrats.”

“It was kind of a way of demonstrating how absurd I think it is to have same-day registration as well as early voting for a caucus,” Muth explained. “So my wife and I last Sunday went to an early voting site, we changed parties right there on the spot. We caucused for Bernie.”
