Truth Squad had already reported that the NYPD under Federal directives has been monitoring facebook on July 22nd, when Truth Squad editor Danny Panzella was confronted by no less than 40 NYPD officers after posting on facebook that he would be staging a “flash mob” protest of the NY Federal Reserve Bank.
The NYPD apparantly classifies this as “mayhem” rather than the founders definition of right to free speech, and freedom of assembly.
The term flash mob first came about when activists and artists would use social networking to organize last minute protests, street art such and impromptu dance routines. As parodied in this commercial.
Recently however flash mobs have taken on a more nefarious meaning when gangs of thugs would flood into retail stores in mass shoplifting mobs.
