Anonymous Tweets U.S. Hit By Major DDoS Attack on June 15

Following a massive cell phone service outage that affected hundreds of thousands T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint customers on Monday, that hacktivist group Anonymous tweeted that it was a result of a ďmajor DDoS attack.Ē

DDoS, which is short for Distributed Denial of Service Attack, is an attempt to make an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources. They target a wide variety of important resources, from banks to news websites, flooding it with too much information to operate, and forcing a major challenge to customers or people wanting to publish or access important information.

Anonymous tweeted out a digital map that appeared to show the various types of attacks happening between America and the rest of the world on Monday.


Things have been slow and glitchy for the last couple of hours here in NM. This explains a lot.

Confessions of a Former Bastard Cop

This essay has been kicking around in my head for years now and Iíve never felt confident enough to write it. Itís a time in my life Iím ashamed of. Itís a time that I hurt people and, through inaction, allowed others to be hurt. Itís a time that I acted as a violent agent of capitalism and white supremacy. Under the guise of public safety, I personally ruined peopleís lives but in so doing, made the public no saferÖ so did the family members and close friends of mine who also bore the badge alongside me.

But enough is enough.

The reforms arenít working. Incrementalism isnít happening. Unarmed Black, indigenous, and people of color are being killed by cops in the streets and the police are savagely attacking the people protesting these murders.

American policing is a thick blue tumor strangling the life from our communities and if you donít believe it when the poor and the marginalized say it, if you donít believe it when you see cops across the country shooting journalists with less-lethal bullets and caustic chemicals, maybe youíll believe it when you hear it straight from the pigís mouth.


Long and brutal examination of what the system is and why it is the way it is. Excellent read. Just be aware you might need a drink or three to get through it.

His recommendations are spot on.
