Brown maintained that OpCartel members were proceeding carefully, not only to protect themselves, but to insure that they identify the right people when they make their public disclosures. "It's a very careful process," he contended. For any Anonymous members concerned that the drug cartel, known as Los Zetas, will hunt down and kill them, "this isn't the movement for them," Brown warned in this YouTube video.
