The hashtag #PercumaLaporPolisi on social media is a form of Digital Movement Opinion as an expression of the accumulation of public disappointment. The series of disappointments and anger at the police have made internet users build solidarity and fight each other using the hashtag #PercumaLaporPolisi on Instagram to show their protest regarding the incompetence of law enforcement agencies which ideally have the duty to protect the community but in fact there are many individuals who do not side with the people. This research was conducted with the aim of analyzing and understanding the controversial digital opinion movement developing in virtual society. The analysis process is carried out based on the theories of Digital Movement of Opinion (DMO) and Public Opinion on social media. Using the netnographic method, the results of this study prove that the digital opinion movement in the hashtag #PercumaLaporPolisi was formed spontaneously, unplanned and disorganized. This hashtag resurfaced in the case of Ferdy Sambo, which dragged quite a number of Polri officials and risked the image of the Police in the eyes of the public. Comments written by netizens in the comments column are almost uniform or homogeneous in the form of disappointment, insults, to escorting cases to be resolved. Opinions from netizens in the hashtag #PercumaLaporPolisi which lead to feelings of disappointment, pity and anger, continue. In every post with the hashtag #PercumaLaporPolisi, almost all opinions from citizens are the same even though there is no coordination, it seems as if the community is really disappointed with the Polri agency. This opinion is also consistent, in the sense that it is not influenced by other opinions, netizens continue to express disappointment in the Polri agency and continue to guard the Ferdy Sambo case until it is punished as fairly as possible.
