On 13 August 2016, OSINT identified the use of social media in mobilizing a crowd, which turned into a riot, resulting in major property damage. Social media was used to mobilize and insight the protestors onto a riotous situation. There is a call out through The Anti-Media's social media outlets to target police; specifically naming three police chiefs in Detroit MI, Evergreen IL and Norwalk CT. Social media continues to be used to form public sentiment. We are providing this information for your situational awareness.
