Suspected != guilty and if they go around publicizing suspects or even people who the police have named as suspects or "persons of interest" who turn out to be innocent, it will hurt Anonymous's own reputation big-time.

Yes, it would hurt Anonymous's sterling reputation as fine, upstanding citizens, full of kindness and charity, the very model of intergrity and all that is good in the world.

Has anyone actually gone into root and executed the command-that-shall-not-be-named?

Oh yes. Once by accident due to finger flail. Fortunately, this was on my own desktop machine, and I was able to fully recover from backups. It was a valuable lesson though (once bitten. twice shy). I now pay more attention to what's on the screen before hitting enter.

As for slaughtering, well, chickens are relatively easy. You can go for the messy way and just chop the head off, but if you prefer less mess and a calmer chicken, just use a killing cone, hang upside down, slit the throat, let the blood drain for a couple minutes. Dunk in scalding water, pluck feathers. The only mildly hard part is getting out the viscera, and that's only because you don't want to puncture the intestines (and get feces all over) -- so make a cut in the right place, then use you hand gently to yank them out. Cut off the feet and neck, and you're basically done.

Stop already, you're making me hungry!

I propose something else: all police wear cameras and audio recording 100% of the time, and a zero tolerance for police who do not adhere to the law, and dismissal/criminal charges are the outcome. Any police officer who turned off his recording stuff is presumed to be lying.

Remove the ability to turn the cameras off. Same with the ability to erase what has been recorded. Anything less than that is just inviting abuse.
