Barret Brown finally sentenced

Brown said after hi sentence: “Good news!” he wrote. “The US government decided today that because I did such a good job investigating the cyber-industrial complex, they’re now going to send me to investigate the prison-industrial complex.”

Kevin Gallagher, the director of the Free Barrett Brown campaign was quoted as saying “Basically, if you share a link to publicly available material without knowing what’s in it – maybe it could contain stolen credit card info – you could be prosecuted. Any journalist that uses hackers as sources is extremely chilled by this, We thought he’d get between 30 and 40 months,” he said. “I think he’s just as upset as we are.”
