For the second time this year, self-proclaimed Anonymous spokesman Barrett Brown was raided by the FBI.

The latest dramatic incident occurred late Wednesday evening while Brown and another woman identified by some as his girlfriend were participating in an online chat on TinyChat with other individuals.

Two minutes into the recorded chat session, loud voices could be heard in the background of Brown’s residence in Texas while the woman in the room with him was in front of the computer screen. She quickly closed the computer screen, but the audio continued to capture events in the room as the FBI appeared to strong-arm Brown to put handcuffs on him. Brown could be heard yelling in the background.

Jeez, seems nowhere is safe? Well, at lease the FBI chose to do this whilst he was "online" Hmmmm slight embarrassment for them I guess............Why not promote it to the world!

I know! I was thinking the very same thing!! ha! With that many people chatting at the same time you would not know who was talking if you were all wearing them?

Lots of enthusiastic hand gestures to distinguish yourself whilst talking!!!

Usually this site and the Posters that go here usually has a problem with the Corporate Establishment, trying to say Anon has no use right now is pathetic. Wiki Leaks is Anon in a way and sure they have some problems but at the end of the day the stuff they do is helping normal people understand wtf is going on. Hakers have there place in our Computer Generated World. 90% of the People I know dont have a clue how to add memory to a Computer and you expect our whole society to based on Computers and have no real Police??

Come on now. Refute me if you can, but at the end of the day I will be right. Go ahead....try me.

Hmm. Perhaps it's just the conspiracy theorist in me lifting an eyebrow or two, but don't you think it's just a little suspicious and convenient that this happened as he was online chatting? The screen was closed, so you could only hear audio. There's no way to ascertain whether or not the FBI was actually there.

From article.


A spokeswoman in the Dallas County sherriff’s office confirmed to Wired that Brown was raided last night and was booked into the county jail around 11 p.m. She said the FBI removed him from the jail this morning to take him to a different facility, but she did not know where he was headed.

Ah okay, sorry about that. In that case, this is pretty concerning. The government seems to be doing a lot to discredit those with different viewpoints as of late. And to what end?

We don't know the real reason hes being locked up.

It would have to be serious, I would think. Cyber Crime, of some sort, I think.

Maybe he is the one that broke in to the FBI a few weeks ago.
I seem to recall they like hacked laptops and found ou who all they were tracking, and had th I'd's of people's "smart" phones.

The Dallas home of Project PM founder Barrett Brown, an independent researcher, activist and informal spokesperson for Anonymous, was raided by armed officers on Wednesday after he uploaded the last of several videos to the Internet calling for an investigation into the FBI. He was in court later Thursday and charged with threatening a federal officer.




In retaliation for his arrest, Antisec posted the full credit-card use data for 13 accounts believed to belong to government officials, complete with .gov email addresses registered with the data.


rt.com...

Seems like overkill on the part of the FBI but not surprising.
