Stop taking photographs of protesters. Fuck local media. And fuck Fedbook.
If I weren't sitting on my ass in the middle of nowhere doing nothing, I'd be a ghost on social media these days.
Also, *cover any distinguishing tattoos at all times*. From the second you leave your damn house til the second you get home...
Everything even remotely identifying in the indictment came directly from social media (the accused's own and protest voyeurs). There's nothing from alleged pig bodycams or surveillance cams produced (doesn't mean they don't have it, they just didn't use it in the indictment.)
"According to charges, investigators scoured publicly available social media accounts, including YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok in the days after the Third Precinct building" https://www.startribune.com/feds-charge-brainerd-area-man-with-helping-burn-down-third-precinct-building/571299032/
"Branden Wolfe, 23, was charged with aiding and abetting arson and is scheduled to make his initial court appearance Tuesday in U.S. District Court in St. Paul, Minnesota." https://www.kare11.com/article/news/local/george-floyd/st-paul-man-charged-in-minneapolis-police-3rd-precinct-arson/89-f01d7d6e-8be7-46d5-afac-28cfc4c41253 #Crackdown
Also, ATF is actively looking for (and soliciting snitches) on 14 more people from the Minneapolis uprising already. Certainly going to be more. https://www.startribune.com/atf-releases-photos-of-many-suspects-in-acts-of-arson-during-minneapolis-unrest/571273222/?refresh=true
They got some prettttttty identifiable surveillance photos splashed on their website...

Repression ramping up daily.
It took something like two weeks for the LAPD to snatch up the "LA Four" in the Reginald Denny incident in 1992. And everyone didn't have snitches in their own pockets back then [just helicopter news footage]. https://twitter.com/OLAASM/status/1272944259486961665
Threading this. Another arrest in #Minneapolis
yesterday. Law enforcement claims to have matched surveillance with a tiktok video and cellphone data pings for their ID. https://twitter.com/OLAASM/status/1273415061848109056
They're still going hard after two women for the Wendy's fire (and according to Fox5 Atlanta, several more people as well.) Good thing there's *plenty* of video and everyone shared it all 500k times in case they missed any of it.

[ABOVE: Every arson of a business gets Federal charges added on based on their "interstate commerce," apparently. I thought it might just be police property, but every fire is getting Federal enhancement.]
If they catch all the people involved in burning the Wendy's down in Atlanta, they're going to catch a Federal case, too. Good job, everybody!
