The ‘Hacktivist’ group Anonymous has been a consistent source of counter cultural news and activism. The latest alleged video from Anonymous now deals with the mystery surrounding the death of black teen Kendrick Johnson. Johnson’s body was found rolled up in school wrestling mat in Valdosta, Georgia and was officially ruled accidental by the Lowndes County Coroner.
The family of Kendrick Johnson and supporters have refused to accept this explanation and believe Johnson was murdered. In addition, the family believes there is a vast conspiracy to protect those individuals who might be responsible because of law enforcement connections. The family recently filed a $100 million wrongful death lawsuit that names more than 30 defendants and the city of Valdosta. Because of possible conflict of interest issues with the case, seven judges have recused themselves from hearing the lawsuit. There is an ongoing federal investigation surrounding Johnson’s death and many prominent Valdosta and Lowndes County, Georgia citizens have been made to testify during the federal investigation.
