Will Anonymous keep fighting crime?

Tell me something.

Anonymous solves some cases faster than the cops. Doesn’t matter why, really. Just that it happened. They brought justice – more than once – when justice was otherwise impotent.

When do you think that Anonymous – and the tools that Anonymous uses – will be used to catch those who hurt innocents to create terror?

Reading about the events in Boston, I am not only filled with sadness and compassion, but a righteous anger sharpened by my inability to stop those who attacked innocents.

I also see the occasional Guy Fawkes mask icon spreading news and information.

How long do you really think it’ll be before Anonymous – people who couldn’t help being raised on myths of epic spandex-clad heroes – realizes they can be the mother-f’in batman in a Guy Fawkes mask?

I don’t know if that thought is awesome or terrifying.

But sooner or later, it’s coming.

    When Anonymous doesn't wait for the next guy to speak up, stand up, or push the bad guy over…he/she's a pretty awesome force. You're right.
