From [BlackListed News] The hacker collective Anonymous launched #OpKKK and #HoodsOff this past week which took down, and took over, multiple klan websites and social media accounts while exposing numerous Ku Klux Klan members by making their personal information public.
In the process of outing Ku Klux Klan members, Anonymous discovered connections between the Klan and the “We Support Darren Wilson” group.
One of the Darren Wilson rallies was held in Imperial, Missouri, and was rumored to have been organized by the Klan. It’s important to note that this is also allegedly the hometown of Darren Wilson’s girlfriend and fellow Ferguson police officer Barbara Spradling.
Prior to going public with the connection between the KKK and “We Support Darren Wilson” group, the group purged many photos from the rally from their social media pages, most likely in an attempt to obscure the connections between the groups.

The act of erasing pictures, prior to Anonymous going public with the information, only made Anonymous more suspicious that they were onto something. The scrubbing of information raised their suspicions that perhaps there truly was a connection between Darren Wilson and the KKK.
Then an informant came to Anonymous and described their direct ties to not Darren Wilson himself, but his girlfriend, fellow Ferguson police officer Barbara Spradling. Remember, Spradling is allegedly from the Imperial Missouri area where an alleged KKK supported pro-Darren Wilson rally was held.
The source claimed they had information that directly linked Darren Wilson and the Klan to the events unfolding in Ferguson. While this information was being seriously vetted by Anonymous, and ultimately confirmed, death threats from the Klan started being directed at the hacker collective. Anonymous has since responded to these threats, putting the KKK and Ferguson PD on notice that “We are the law now.”
