    Anonymous Quebec Declares War on the Montreal Cop nicknamed ‘Pepper Spray Man’

    On Thursday evening, Anonymous Quebec effectively declared digital war on the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM)'s Chief Inspector Alain Bourdages, after a photo of him surfaced where he appears to casually pepper-spray nonviolent protesters at close range.


    Anonymous has been monitoring the ongoing anti-austerity protests in Montreal since they began in earnest last month, and the vast majority of them have ended with a combination of arrests, tear gas, stun grenades, and pepper spray.

    As a response to the violence at Wednesday's demonstration, Anonymous posted the photo to their Twitter with a promise to quickly identify Bourdages, who they nicknamed "Pepper Spray Man."

    "From the moment we decided to crowd-source his identification by reaching out with the Twitter hashtag #FindPepperSprayMan to the moment we had his name and rank was approximately 16 minutes,"an Anonymous Quebec spokesperson told VICE. "We timed it."

    They also claimed that they attacked three web servers: the SPVM, the Montreal Fraternal Order of the Police, and the City of Montreal, during which time "the SPVM and FOP sites were taken down completely, and the city's web servers were severely impaired."
