Activist hacking collective Anonymous disabled the website of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police after the RCMP shot and killed a protester.
Twitter accounts affiliated with the loosely organized Anonymous posted updates of the RCMP server being down and claimed responsibility for the cyberattack.
A couple days before, police responded to a disturbance at an informational meeting about the Site C dam project in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. When they arrived, police found a masked man outside. When the man refused to give up his knife, police fired.
