Barrett Brown said upon his conviction: ‘This is the “rule of law enforcement”, and it is very dangerous.’ Further upon his sentencing he said: ‘They’re sending me to investigate the prison-industrial complex’.
The rule of law enforcement is really dangerous to the new emerging world order that is Internet order of humanity as old outdated oppressive regime now doesn’t even know that what it is actually doing. Sentencing of Barret Brown has shown that this world was not prepared to save Aaron Swartz so he was left with no other way out from here except suicide that he did.
The man behind the mask of ‘Anonymous’ is duly imprisoned. His defense lawyers made the charges in the run-up to sentencing explicit as follows: “This breaks down to uploading YouTube videos that contained unfortunate statements, efforts to redact sensitive e-mails that had been procured by hackers, and hiding laptops in a kitchen cabinet.”
After receiving his sentence Barrett Brown released the following statement:
“Good news! — The U.S. government decided today that because I did such a good job investigating the cyber-industrial complex, they’re now going to send me to investigate the prison-industrial complex. For the next 35 months, I’ll be provided with free food, clothes, and housing as I seek to expose wrongdoing by Bureau of Prisons officials and staff and otherwise report on news and culture in the world’s greatest prison system. I want to thank the Department of Justice for having put so much time and energy into advocating on my behalf; rather than holding a grudge against me for the two years of work I put into in bringing attention to a DOJ-linked campaign to harass and discredit journalists like Glenn Greenwald, the agency instead labored tirelessly to ensure that I received this very prestigious assignment. — Wish me luck!”
Internet has got its own bunch of heroes in its struggle of freedom from the state.
