Outraged by claims of excessive police force and brutality at the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, “hactivist” group Anonymous has threatened to attack the NY police department. Anonymous has given the police officers an ultimatum: the brutality must stop within the next 36 hours. Anonymous posted a video 4:30 p.m. Sunday telling the NYPD “If we hear of brutality in the next 36 hours then we will take you down from the internet as you have taken the protesters voices from the airwaves,” according to The Huffington Post.

In the past, Anonymous has attacked the websites of Mastercard, Visa, Gawker, and the Westboro Baptist Church.
