The Anonymous hacktivist group has targeted the Ferguson, Missouri administration and police department web site in an operation dubbed #OpFerguson, according to an announcement on Pastebin.

The #OpFerguson campaign started shortly after a police officer shot an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. At the same time, protests calling attention to racial discrimination grew and a curfew was enforced as the National Guard was called in to stop the movement.
