As promised, Anonymous claims to have assumed control of the @KuKluxKlanUSA Twitter account, posting a tweet late Tuesday revealing personal information about Frank Ancona, the Grand wizard of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan *TAKKK) and his alleged associates. The information, contained in two Pastebin documents contains the names, social security numbers, credit card and banking information, address, telephone number, social media accounts and any other detailed personal data Anonymous could obtain.
Although the grand jury failed to return an indictment against Officer Darren Wilson, hacktivist group Anonymous is vowing to continue their investigation, linking Wilson to the Ku Klux Klan.
As we reported last weekAnonymous has released evidence they claim links the Ku Klux Klan to the Ferguson police department and officer Darren Wilson as the country waited on pins and needles for the final decision of the Missouri grand jury investigating the shooting death of Michael Brown.
According to Anonymous, in the days leading up to the grand jury finding, the South East Missouri Chapter of the KKK known as TAKKKK distributed flyers in Ferguson, MO, making lethal threats toward activists on the ground.
In response, several activists asked Anonymous to launch #OpKKK. Local Anons in the St Louis and Ferguson area then launched #HoodsOff as a way to identify Klan members who might try to embed themselves within the protester community. After identifying multiple members of TAKKKK, Anonymous discovered that 3 of the highest ranking members were present at a Darren Wilson rally in Imperial, MO, that had previously been rumored to be organized by the Klan.
Last Wednesday Anonymous received an email from an informant that read:
“This has gotten out of control. They want to kill me. And after you release this information, they will want to kill me. I am scared for my life right now. I am begging you to please do not release the information that I gave. I’m afraid that because the information I provided is so specific, that it will definitely be traced back to me, and I will be in danger. I am a long time supporter of Anonymous, and have trusted you with my identity. Now I feel my life is in your hands. I’m begging you please. I have a family to think of.”
This informant has been confirmed the the Anti-Media website to be “an employee with access to the St. Louis County Police Department.”
However, in light of the aforementioned email, Anonymous has decided to try and take another look at all the information they have received so far to see if there is any way they can connect all the dots since the information obtained from their police informant was detailed enough that it likely could lead to the exposure of that individual if released in its entirety to the general public.
We will keep you posted on information as this story develops.
