Boston Police Offer Levity in Wake of Anonymous Hack

Thursday, February 09, 2012

The Boston Police Department's Media Relation arm has produced a somewhat whimsical response to the attack of their official website that occurred late last week.

The department's website had been hacked and defaced by sympathizers of the rogue movement Anonymous apparently in retaliation for a raid on Occupy Boston protesters in December of last year.

According to reports, the hackers posted a "message from the collective, titled, 'Anonymous hacks Boston Police website in retaliation for police brutality at OWS,' as well as an embedded version of the KRS-One music video, 'Sound of Da Police.'"

The Boston Police Department has now responded with a video of their own:
