And speaking of flipping the mob switch…

Interesting video of mob riots obfuscating evidence. I particularly love the familiar line from an apparent Black Bloc fan to the film maker: “We don’t want your ___ing evidence!” and “We’re trying to ___ing commit crime here!” And if you listen closely you can hear someone scream “You forgot the ____ing Frappachinos!”

Where’s the EFF when you need them, eh? (see EFF, Best Practices for Online Service Providers http://www.eff.org/files/eff-ospbp-whitepaper.pdf). I’m sure they could have been a big help.

Now there are those who would say uncharitably that riots like this are an analog to what happens online every minute of every day. That’s completely wrong. You’d have to have this video without the cops for that to be true. Sheesh.
