herman Austin, former webmaster of RaisetheFist.com, was
released from prison on July 12 and left Arizona for a halfway
house in his home of Los Angeles, California. Under the
sentencing guidelines of the USA PATRIOT Act, he was facing
over twenty years in prison for bomb-making recipes posted on
another site, which he linked to and was hosting, and decided to
plea-bargain for a year in jail and 3 years of probation. The actual
author of the post has not been prosecuted.

The nightmare hasn't ended for Sherman, however. He will serve
the remainder of his sentence in a halfway house until August. In
addition, Sherman will be serving a sentence of federal probation
for the next three years, under which he will not be allowed to
use a cell phone, computer or other digital device unless
approved by the government. Furthermore, Sherman has been
forbidden any contact with "anarchist groups," who the federal
government maintains "advocate violence as a means of
disrupting order and achieving social, economic and political
change."
==================================
"The Defenestrator - a newspaper of refusal and optimism
..... from an anarchist or autonomist tradition, which proposes
a revolutionary transformation of society, the abolition of
property and of all hierarchies and coercive power."

* Sherman Austin was released on 4 August 2004.
