From: Emma Best


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Alaska Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Records mentioning, describing or generated as a result of the 8 May 2015 Roll Call Release IA-0181-15 (which was designed to be shared widely with law enforcement) from the Department of Homeland Security's Office of intelligence and Analysis (I&A) in conjunction with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, titled "Criminal Hackers Target Police to Protest Perceived Injustices," as well as records otherwise responding or reacting to the issues raised in it.

I am a member of the news media and request classification as such. I have previously written about the government and its activities, with some reaching over 100,000 readers in outlets such as Gizmodo, MuckRock, Motherboard, Property of the People, Unicorn Riot, and The Outline, among others. As such, as I have a reasonable expectation of publication and my editorial and writing skills are well established. In addition, I discuss and comment on the files online and make them available through non-profits such as the library Internet Archive and the journalist non-profit MuckRock, disseminating them to a large audience. While my research is not limited to this, a great deal of it, including this, focuses on the activities and attitudes of the government itself.

As my primary purpose is to inform about government activities by reporting on it and making the raw data available, I request that fees be waived.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Emma Best
