“Alleged hacktivist Barrett Brown, the 31-year old mislabeled spokesman for the shadowy hacker collective known as Anonymous, faces federal charges that could put him away for over a hundred years…His crime: making leaked e-mails accessible to the publicdocuments that shine a light on the shadowy world of intelligence contracting in the post-9/11 era. A critically acclaimed author and provocative journalist, Brown cannot be too easily dismissed as some unruly malcontent typing away in the back of a gritty espresso lounge. He is eccentric. And he was clearly high on something, if only his own hubris, when he made a threatening video that put him in the feds crosshairs. But thats not the real reason for the governments overreaction. Evidence indicates it has a lot more to do with sending a message to the community he comes from, which the government seescorrectlyas a threat.”
