Wednesday, August 06, 2003The webmaster of an anarchist website, Sherman Austin, has been sentenced to one year in federal prison because he linked to information about how to build a bomb on the website, "RaiseTheFist.com". Bomb building instructions are not illegal unless intent can be proven. Think it's only crazy anarchists? I remind you this story of a bearded twenty-something who was interrogated by the FBI because an anonymous tipster thought he looked suspicious at a coffee shop: "Careful, the FB-eye may be watching"
