Hactivists target Orlando mayor for arresting Food Not Bombs members

Orlando police said Wednesday they are treating a photo taken by computer hackers outside the mayor’s house as a threat.

Members of the group Anonymous, which has been launching cyberattacks on Orlando-related websites, turned up the dial on what it calls “Operation Orlando.”

During the weekend, the group posted online a nighttime picture taken outside Mayor Buddy Dyer’s home in College Park. One of the group’s telltale Guy Fawkes masks, made famous in the 2006 film V for Vendetta, was left hanging from a street sign.

“We consider it a threat because they targeted an individual,” said Orlando police Sgt. Vince Ogburn. “Officers who actively patrol that area have been made aware of it and they’re keeping an eye out in the neighborhood for suspicious activity, anybody who looks like they don’t belong there.

The mayor’s office declined to comment, deferring to the Police Department.

  3. Awe, this politician will have to park somewhere else to get head from his favorite prostitute now…otherwise he’ll be a suspect in his own case. Anyone that looks “suspicious?” Give me a break.
