Anonymous has long history of activism and controversy

Gordon Hoekstra reports;

Anonymous, the group that claimed Sunday it had launched an attack on the RCMP for the shooting of a Dawson Creek man, is a loose affiliation of international hackers that originated in 2003.

Since then, it has launched dozens of operations, largely over the Internet, that have targeted child porn websites, supported pro-democracy demonstrators in the Middle East and claim to have taken down government websites over measures to tighten online piracy laws.
