Feds investigate 'Anonymous'; protest planned today: SF

Another BART protest is planned in San Francisco today. The computer hacking group, "Anonymous," says they plan to protest at the Powell Street, Embarcadero and Civic Center stations today. 

The group has planned a protest every Monday since BART temporarily shut down cell service last month to avoid a protest over the killing of Charles Hill in July. Last Thursday a protest by another group, "No Justice, No BART" shut down the Powell Street station and ended with the arrests of more than two dozen demonstrators.

Meanwhile, the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and other federal investigators have now opened a series of official investigations into the hacker group. The FBI has carried out more than 75 raids and arrested 16 people this year in connection with illegal hacking jobs claimed by Anonymous.
