2012 proved to be the year that Anonymous turned away from solely targeting governments and corporations, and became somewhat of an online vigilante force. The hacker collective now targets those that they feel the law isn't punishing, and takes matters into their own hands. Their latest target may also be the most disturbing yet.
As you are probably aware of by now, the town of Steubenville, OH was rocked by the news that two of its high school star football players were arrested for kidnapping and raping a young girl at a party in August. The case has been largely covered up since then, but Anonymous is now taking justice into their own hands by releasing a video that clearly identifies those who took part in the crime.
According to The Daily Dot, the video was leaked by @KYAnonymous, a member who has also targeted revenge porn magnate Hunter Moore. It seems that this latest operation is continuing his or her vigilantism against those who perpetrate violence against women. You can check out the video below, but be warned, it's very disturbing.
Anonymous obviously hopes that the video will further prosecution against the football players who allegedly committed the act. You can follow all the details of Anonymous' latest operation at #OpRollRedRoll. It's pretty disturbing stuff, but it's even more disturbing that nothing has been done about it yet.
