The Fifth HOPE (2004): "Mischief and Mayhem at the RNC" (Download)
Friday, July 9, 2004: 7:00 pm (Area "B"): Back in 2000 at H2K, ShapeShifter was part of a discussion on secrets of the major political conventions in the United States. Not long afterwards, he was arrested on the streets of Philadelphia on suspicion of being a"ringleader" of dissent. In the end, he won his case against the city and all charges were dismissed. His interests weren't squashed because of unjust prosecution. That's why this talk will focus on the 2004 Republican National Convention taking place across the street from the Hotel Pennsylvania in late August. The presentation will detail how cops spy on people, their methods of surveillance, and how they often abuse authority. You will learn how to infiltrate organizations like the RNC, how to look for and find security holes, and how mischief and mayhem is achieved. There will also be details on a unique scavenger hunt.
