CNN is reporting that Missouri police say neither of the two officers whose names, photographs, and personal data were released this morning by Anonymous are the officer who shot and killed unarmed teen Michael Brown.
The young man's death sparked massive displays of public grief; peaceful protests were met with overwhelming military response by heavily armed SWAT teams.
On Wednesday, [Ferguson Police Chief Thomas] Jackson told CNN that the officer who shot Brown had been hit and suffered swelling on the side of his face. He was taken to a hospital and released the same day, Jackson said.
Five days have passed since Brown's killing, and the public still does not know the name of the person who pulled the trigger.
There have been cries of a cover-up, but authorities said police have received death threats against the officer and his family. And they want to prevent further violence.
Hackers have gone after the personal information of government and police officials, authorities said.
Below, two tweets from the account that later released what purports to be personally identifying information for two Missouri police officers. This Anonymous account says one of the two officers shot Brown. Other Anonymous accounts have voiced concern that the data was published prematurely, and there appears to be the usual infighting between self-proclaimed Anonymous leaders. Don't ever change, Anonymous.
