In the wake of the Ferguson grand jury decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of unarmed Michael Brown, hacker collective Anonymous posted a video promising to take down websites belonging to the government of Missouri.

The video is posted on YouTube by a different offshoot of the hacker group than the one responding to Ku Klux Klan taunting last week.

This time, the threat comes from a band calling itself GSA AMCF (Ghost Security Anonymous / AnonMafia Cyber Family), and they are obviously vexed by the grand jury verdict.

Addressing protesting citizens in Ferguson and all over the US, they created a video in the Anonymous style, the message being delivered via computerized voice-over.

“Anonymous shall Target any Missouri Government or Bank sites now, so you better increase your security because we're here and we're not gonna standby and watch you let this man walk free,” it is said in the video, read by someone wearing a Guy Fawkes mask; the footage should be familiar, though, because it has been used in other Anonymous videos.

It is unclear, though, what it is they expect with this kind of action, since launching a distributed denial-of-service attack would not lead to a change of verdict.

On the other hand, the initial group battling KKK, and still holding hostage their Twitter account, dumped online personal information of alleged leaders, as part of #OpKKK / #HoodsOff.
