Anonymous' Journalist Released after 4 Years in Jail -- Vows Never to Back Down

• http://thefreethoughtproject.com

Barrett Brown, the activist and journalist known best for his work with anonymous, was recently released from jail after serving a brutal 4-year sentence. During that time he spent at least 6 months in solitary confinement, and now that he is released, he still faces 6 months of house arrest and will owe over $800 thousand in restitution fees.

Brown was a controversial figure who became a target for federal law enforcement due to his support of anonymous and his aggressive style of activism and journalism.

During his trial, Brown had a long list of charges stacked against him and was facing over 100 years in prison. Ultimately, the charge that actually stuck was a hacking charge that was related to Brown copying and pasting a link to already hacked Wikileaks material into a chat room for other activists and journalists to research. He did not actually carry out the hack in question, nor is he accused of doing so. He was simply accused of placing a link in a chat room and sharing information about an important leak, something that any serious journalist at the time should have been doing.

Brown was ultimately convicted for the crime of being a real journalist who was not afraid to expose the secrets and crimes of those in power. For generations, the establishment has had the media so tightly controlled to the point where pre-approved journalists are the only ones allowed to ask pre-approved questions of those in power, and anyone who prints anything critical of an authority figure or advertiser is sure to see their career crash and burn.

This poor guy took a beating for all Americans who are, whether they know it or not, under attack by evil FREEMASON ILLUMINATI dirtbags and all government, military and police pussy cowards who do the bidding for these sick diabolical bastards. Where are all the Brave American patriots to fight these wicked people. You are being called to fight for the America that these traitors are trying to destroy, and according to THE LAW you have every right to stop them. Obviously it is a flawed system so work covertly and do as they do when they decieve and backstab American citizens. Someone is going to be a hero because Americans are waking up faster than these Freemason Luciferian, Zionist and Jesuit scumbag globalists can kill us, which is why they are desperately trying to cause a nuclear war, killing the masses with Fluoride, GMOs, chemtrails, toxins and DEWs. THESE EVIL BASTARDS ARE IN THEIR LAST DAYS BEFORE SOMEBODY DOES WHAT SHOULD'VE BEEN DONE 240 YEARS AGO.

Total fucking Bullshit the hand he got dealt! These power-players are imbeciles because for every Barrett Brown there are a dozen in the shadows. You can't stop a movement built of truth and freedom.
