Barrett Brown: A Jailed American Dissident

If you watched the excellent Anonymous documentary We are Legion, you will be familiar with Barrett Brown.  The interview below is from March 2011, but I found it really interesting since in it Barrett cryptically discusses his potential future arrest; an event that ultimately took place in September 2012.  When asked about him being targeted for arrest he states amusingly:

I mean Texans and indictments…it’s like a Texas Bar Mitzvah.  My dad was indicted, you know, I have friends that have been indicted, have gone to prison…it happens.

There is a Free Barrett Brown twitter account if you have any interest in following his story further.

In Liberty,
Mike

  1. The ordinary citizens it appears, are destined to fill the prisons, perhaps we have to get used to the idea! There is a traditional Irish ballad that says:

    ‘Tuar beannacht bheith i bpriosun’

    or in other words:

    If you want good wishes, go to jail.

    And the Irish know all about jail, they spent a lot of their time filling British jails during their 700 year fight for freedom!
