Well think again…
Police in Teaneck, New Jersey, with apparently too much time on their hands, are investigating an offensive wireless network name. Although the police didn’t reveal the name, the New York Daily News reports that it was anti-Semitic and racist in nature. The incident is being investigated as a possible ‘bias crime.’ It’s definitely not what proper people do, but a ‘bias crime?
Sounds very Orwellian ’1984′ “thought-crime-ish”
Anonymous have raided many government sites and taking them down as a response to Megaupload being taken down.

FBI website crippled by Anonymous led retaliation to Megaupload raid
The websites for the US Department of Justice and Universal Music Group were among the first to go, with the sites for US Copyright Office, Warner Music, BMI, and RIAA following suit shortly after. At around 7:40 PM ET, FBI.gov finally went down.
Ongoing attacks have also been waged against WhiteHouse.gov, the official site for the Executive Branch of the United States.
“It was in retaliation for Megaupload,” Barrett Brown confirms to RT. A frequent collaborator with Anonymous, he is mastermind a separate campaign aimed at attacking Congressman that support the SOPA and PIPA legislations.
Seems Anonymous is definitely on the warpath.
