Did Anonymous Hack Waller County Sheriff’s Department?

Video thumbnail for youtube video Anonymous Seeks to Collect Abusive (NYC) Police Officer's Information | Cop Block graphicThe “hacktivist” group Anonymous claims to have hacked the computer system for the Waller County Sheriff’s Department and obtained private employee information.

“Greetings world, we are Anonymous. We are preparing to release leaked files regarding Sandra Bland’s case,” said a voice on a YouTube video claimed to have been uploaded by Anonymous. “We will release the leak at 4 p.m. Eastern Time.”

Anonymous claims the Waller County Sheriff’s Department is involved in covering up the murder of Sandra Bland.

“Breaking News: Anonymous infiltrates Waller County Sheriff’s Department servers, leaks everything,” said @TheAnonMessage2 on Twitter.

The tweet included a link to a pastebin with a list of names, phone numbers, home addresses, and social media accounts.  In the pastebin, Anonymous claims to have hacked the department’s servers.

People always make the best exploits. I’ve never found it hard to hack most people. If you listen to them, watch them, their vulnerabilities are like a neon sign screwed into their heads.

Greetings Waller County Sheriff Department, Are you ready for August 8th? Do you think the city police are ready? Well we are ready. On July 10, 2015, unnecessary force of action was used against Sandra Bland when she was arrested over a minor traffic stop. Officer Encinia used excessive force causing injuries to Sandra which led to her death. We are distraught and angered by the careless response to our demands of arresting officer Brian Encinia and the pedaling of illegitimate and doctored evidence by the media.
Our blood is boiling with rage and on August 8th we will be hitting your servers once more. We will also take our rage to the streets across the nation. We will be protesting at courthouses, parks, police stations, and even at officers homes. We will have our moment of rage for her. We have given you plenty of warning of what is to come.

Not a single sheriff officer in your department has attempted to cross the thin blue line and hold the murderer accountable for his actions. Therefore, in the eyes of FrightSec and in the eyes of Anonymous, you all are just as guilty as he is. As your punishment we are leaking your employee list little by little. The only way to stop this is by crossing the thin blue line and uphold the oath you swore. To protect and serve the citizens and arrest Officer Encinia.

August 8th will be a day to remember. That day the nation will rage. We are asking the people protesting in Waller County to consider and talk with your friends and families about protesting at the officers houses. Until the Police State of America realizes that the power belongs to the people and that their badge does not grant them extra right, they will continue to abuse their power. they will continue to murder our kids, murder our vets, murder the homeless, and continue the use of brutality. Protesting at their house will show them that you are serious and demand change.

Be the change you wish to see in the world. Link arms with groups like Anonymous, Cop Block, Cop Watch, Occupy, and Black Lives Matter and burn the oppressors down!

This modern day genocide will soon be over America. We will soon no longer be like Iraq on the home-front. Until you stop using deadly force on unarmed citizens this movement will be here. We will be here. The Frightsec movement is here to stay. Waller County Sheriffs Department you should really keep a tighter security of your server data. To the police state of America, your police brutality will no longer go unnoticed. You are no longer exempt from the laws you swore to uphold. Do not expect us, for it is far too late.


However, Waller County’s Sheriff, R. Glenn Smith, told KPRC 2 as far as they’re aware, their computers have not been hacked.

Sheriff Smith said they do not have a computer database where personal information is stored.

Smith said the information Anonymous released is not correct and can be found easily on Google.

The sheriff’s department said they are monitoring the group and have notified their employees about the situation.

The information on Pastebin.com has since been removed, but it can be found here.

    Oh wow. You’d think in all that hacking that they’d of found he incriminating videos of her murder.

    Guess they didn’t because it didn’t happen.

    Face it guys…e depressed drug addict offed herself.
    That’s not a good thing. It’s just a thing.

  • stupidcopsuckers

    Please kill yourself

  • mobooz

    Oh noes! Anonymous is gonna’ DDoS a midsize county’s Sheriff’s Department and get rid of policing as we know it! Just like they got rid of Scientology, ISIS, the Koch brothers, Visa, Paypal, child pornography, the Vatican, the NSA and the KKK, right?

  • t

    Naw. That’s for whimps and losers.
    Maybe you could give a try and then prepare a book report for the rest of us

  • RadicalDude

    Good job Anons.

  • Yomammaaho

    THAT’S what I’m talking about!!!
    Shine the light on these rat pig’s personal life info…and have fun watching them scatter like roaches.

    As I always say….KNOW where your pigs and their families LIVE.

  • JC

    Hackers are all over the net. There is no reason to get into the personal lives of police officers. Maybe that can be done to copblockers. I already know quite a few copblockers on this forum who would much rather keep their personal lives “personal”

  • Yomammaaho

    Is ths the guy who murdered Sandra?

    Brian T Encinia

  • Yomammaaho

    By the way..his salary of $182,090 certainly explains him and his kind feeling like they they have to shake people down.

  • Yomammaaho

    Nope. There’s EVERY reason to put corrupt cop’s info online…..starting with their refusal to obey the costitution they are sorn to uphold. And then there is lying….lying on police reports…..lying in court….unnecessarily beating and killing people……putting peope in jail for trumped up charges…..fabricating evidence.
    The list goes on and on.

  • Yomammaaho
  • Anti Cop

    That Fucker. What a piece of shit. One Can of paint stripper can do 2 thousand dollars in damage to a nice car in five seconds. It might be said to be a good idea to know where the assholes park their cars.

  • Yomammaaho

    It’s all there “as bold as Dallas”.

  • Anti Cop

    Paint stripper is very quiet when it’s lightly splashed at 3 am and doesn’t set off car alarms.

  • Pw4x3r

    Oh! So it’s OK for the police to fuck with civilians and interfere with their personal lives (even when it has nothing to do with their job or their oath) BUT ITS NOT OK TO FUCK WITH THEM? FUCK YOU! GO KILL YOURSELF YOU PIECE OF SHIT! Maybe we can get a cop to do that.

  • Yomammaaho

    I myself have used paint….(was great watching his face).
    Another thing to do is to get a good size can of auto body fiberglass resin…..and dump it down the gas tank. You don’t even have to add the hardener if you don’t have time.
    The car will run for a……short…..time.

  • Yomammaaho

    Must be hard to be as stupud as JC, and have to post it for all to see.

  • Time 2 dump

    We should start getting all police info and mass dumping it. Dump it all over the net. All over the world.

  • Yomammaaho

    Notice how the pig has already taken down his facebook?
    Chicken chit!

  • JC

    More threats, more paperwork.

  • JC

    You are truly pathetic. Why don’t we start posting copblockers personal information on the net. We could start with yours.

  • Yomammaaho

    Go right ahead JC and see what happens. I DARE YOU….

  • JC

    I have in the past. It’s hilarious you vote yourself up. I found out Graham Colson and a few others who like to hide behind fake names.

  • Yomammaaho

    YOU are the one most guilty of hIding behind a fake name. This site is anti-copsucker, yet you come on AS a copsucker WITHOUT the conviction of your ridiculous pro pig statements.
    Therefore, you must yourself KNOW your arguments are fake……otherwise you would be proud to put your money where your mouth is.

  • jonn

    Yeah, paint stripper works well……but damn, the price of it!
    Regular DOT III brake fluid also does the same thing, just takes a little longer, but its available at Wal-Mart, and even most grocery stores and its a great deal cheaper.

  • t

    Wow. New cars for everyone. Sweet.

  • Yomammaaho

    I just watched a youtube video, where NO damage was done to the paint in two hours.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    Lol, you don’t have shit. You still can’t even figure out what fucking state I live in. The comments above didn’t even get into the fun uses of paint thinner on the human body. It can be used to do a lot more than damage cars. Have you ever seen the lungs of somebody forced to inhale paint thinner? Gotta love chemistry.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    Why do you give him any logical response? Just explain different ways of humans dying to him, it starts to get to him after 10 comments. The video of his death is going to be unforgettable.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I’m going to fucking laugh when you are skinned alive on film.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    Do not use logic with him. Just insult him, or talk about dead bodies. He really doesn’t like you talking about dead bodies to him.

  • Pw4x3r

    You wouldn’t know a threat if someone was holding a gun at your face, you dumb mother fucker.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    What do you think his IQ is? I seriously think it’s in the upper 60’s or lower 70’s.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    Please start with mine. You’re so fucking retarded that I’m pretty sure you forgot what your first fucking name is. Have you ever seen somebody burned alive, and I’m not talking about on video. It’s the smell, after the sounds that get you. Then you get hungry.

  • corkie

    t = Another cop that’s completely clueless about the law

    t, do you still think that premeditation is a requirement for all murder convictions?


  • Dave

    All you do is bark, little doggie. Yip yip yip.

  • copblock18017
  • jonn

    I never actually timed the brake fluid bubbling up car paint, but I have spilled brake fluid, thought I wiped all of it up, but next morning, big spots where the fluid was is all bubbled up to the bare metal.

  • t is a dictator

    oh so it’s your turn with the paperwork huh you dumbass pussy

  • CopApologistsSuck

    what a pussy he is.

  • CopApologistsSuck

    I say we email on both of those accounts and remind him how much of a coward he is.

  • Yomammaaho

    I google mapped officer Encina. He has a nice pool. When one robbs $182,000 from citizens, one can afford such luxerys.
    Here’s his email………briant78962@yahoo.com

  • Never Trust The Police

    I think his email bounced back

  • Yomammaaho

    Obviously he’s shut down his social media….but no way he’s already moved out.

  • CopApologistsSuck

    Looks like he shut down his email or one of his buddies did it for him. Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

  • CopApologistsSuck

    I have feeling he’s been visiting the site and this article

  • Yomammaaho

    I can imagine ALL of those listed LEO’s are putting cops around ALL their homes.
    That’s Good. Less of the thugs on the roads harassing citizens.

  • mobooz is a troll

    Keep it up i got 6 comments of yours saved on wordpad where you troll the articles, so the next time you kiss up to Valerie or one of the Larry’s you like I’ll repost those comments of yours so that Valerie and one of the Larry’s will see that you’re just as worse as JC and the other copsuckers who come here. Right now they don’t think you’re a troll because they only come to the site when they make an article but I promise you they will see that you are just like JC and the other copsucker’s the next time you kiss up to them, So remember i got your comment’s saved.

  • mobooz is a troll

    not to mention where you insult the author’s

  • Pw4x3r

    According to all the evidence, fact.

  • Drexel Hill Watch

    The police department DID admit they were under a cyber attack.

  • Yomammaaho

    Quite tame compared to yanking a WOMAN out of her car in a power trip…..and having your buddies murder her behind closed walls.

  • JC

    Let’s see. Ademo Freeman’s real name is Adam Muehler. Ian Bernard also goes by Ian Freeman. Matt Phillips goes by Centurion and so on and so on. You are the pig on this forum. Your little cocktail party psychology is very funny. Keep up your lies.

  • mobooz

    Lemme’ see the comments. =P

  • mobooz

    Is it really my fault that Joshua H couldn’t write his way out of an 8th grade proficiency exam?

  • Common Sense

    Oh my, you flooded their server and “shut down” a FB page. Released information that was pretty much public information already.

    How ever will the police cope? What ever will they do? I bet, even now, in a secret court room, in evil allegiance with the DMV, all employees are getting new names and identities, having their debt wiped clean to avoid any electronic trail. They will be in hiding for decades…..yeah…..well…..probably not…..

    He will be just like Pike at UC Berkley. 14 year olds will harass him, he’ll claim PTSD, get an early retirement with full benefits and max pay, laughing as he preps his new boat. Nice plan.

  • Larry Freeman

    my guess it’s about the same as a pittsburgh steelers fan’s IQ

  • Nana Chel

    Sheriff Smith said they do not have a computer database where personal information is stored.?? really ?? more lies ?

  • Nana Chel

    eggs work better and are cheaper .. limburger leaves a raunchy smell .. there’s lots of things .. but isn’t this a little juvenile ??

  • Yomammaaho

    Actualy, the very BEST thing for a pig’s personal car is skunk scent….available from hunting stores. Mix it with a 1/2 or full gallon of water…and soak the interior.
    The car is GAURANTEED junk after that.

  • Yomammaaho

    You…as always are a lying piece of shit copsucker.
    The police, prosecutors, and judges actively hide their personal info (for good reasons), and they even “scrub” the net to remove their personal info.
    They falsely arrest those video recording police station parking lots….but you think everyone is too stupid to see this.
    You are an imbecile.

  • BlamePoliticiansNotAParty

    Obviously the Sheriff is lying about the database or he is really that big of a fucking moron. Every single person that works as a police officer is in a database that contains their background check, fingerprints and all their contact information. Is this fool saying that their actually using paper files for this shit? It’s 2015, you can’t just fucking lie and expect people to believe it.

  • b L a c K a n d P r o u d

    I hope justice is served this Saturday and if it isn’t I hope they do what they have to
