Retired Police Captain: I Trust #Anonymous More than the Feds

Posted: May 31, 2015 in Politics


Ray Lewis, a retired Philadelphia police captain, claimed Thursday that he was not only targeted by the Department of Homeland Security, but that he trusts the hacktivist collective, Anonymous, more than he trusts the federal government. Lewis is an outspoken activist who was arrested at Occupy Wall Street and present at the Ferguson police brutality protests last year.

Lewis continued that within a week, he had received a notification that his pension was in jeopardy.
Just as disconcerting, he said,

A day later I received a Certified Letter from Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey. He egregiously and illegally, threatened me with, ‘. . . I will take ANY and ALL necessary action to stop you…’

Charles Ramsey is a notoriously corrupt cop who recently headed  President Obama’s “Task Force on 2st Century Policing.” In contrast, Ray Lewis is a former officer who has protested a variety of policies around the country, from oil profiteering to Wall Street to police brutality. In the post, he included a picture of himself at the Wednesday protest, holding a sign that says “WARNING: MASSIVE CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE IS NEXT.” “CIVIL” is crossed out.

Due to the surveillance and targeting Lewis claims to have experienced, he sides with Anonymous over the government. His post concludes,

I firmly believe that my safety is in better hands with Anonymous, [than] it is with DHS, or the Philadelphia Police Department. (read the full statement here)
