(Ferguson, MO) -- A group of Internet hackers known as "Anonymous" has admitted to hacking the website of the city of Ferguson, Missouri. "KMOV" reports the city's emails were not working Monday morning, following a night of protests, rioting and looting in and around the St. Louis suburb. The twitter handle, "Operation Ferguson." tweeted that "Anonymous" would launch cyber attacks against the city's website if any protesters were harmed after the Saturday shooting of Mike Brown by a police officer. The twitter handle has since been suspended.
