Anonymous has turned its attention to Maryville, Mo., where a small-town rape scandal isn't resulting in the justice they feel a teenage girl deserves.

"There's a multitude of anons and angry people planning a course of action as we speak for Maryville," said Deric Lostutter, aka RealKYAnonymous.

If the Maryville authorities won't "do their jobs," the hacktivist's boldly declares on behalf of one young victim, "we will have to stand for them."

"We demand an immediate investigation into the handling by local authorities of Daisy's case," his statement reads, referring to Daisy Coleman.

Just 14 at the time, she was drunk when high school football player Matthew Barnett, then 17, allegedly sexually assaulted her last year at a house party.

With North Korea threatening war with the U.S. this week, hackers reportedly affiliated with Anonymous broke into the rogue state's official Twitter account.

The country's Twitter and Flickr pages stopped sending out typical content from the Pyongyang regime, such as photos of Kim Jong Un and military leaders.

Kim Jong Un Hacked

Instead, a picture posted on the North's Flickr site shows Kim Jong Un's face with a pig-like snout and a drawing of Mickey Mouse on his chest.

Underneath, the text reads: "Threatening world peace with ICBMs and Nuclear weapons / Wasting money while his people starve to death."

Pretty much sums up Dennis Rodman's dictator BFF.

However, when hacktivist group Anonymous and supporters showed up to block the WBC's picket line, the so-called "religious" group was not present.

A crowd showed up Tuesday at the funeral home in Highland Park, Ill., willing to stand in the way of WBC members to prevent them from getting close.

This after after church said it planned to picket Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The scene of a mass shooting where 26 children and adults died Friday would seem an unlikely spot for a protest ... for any other group of humans.

Westboro Baptist said it planned a demonstration at the Newtown, Conn., school, which apparently didn't sit well with supporters of Anonymous.

Itself a subversive community of activists and trolls of a different sort, the "hacktivist" group appears to have taken down the church extremists' website.
