That last poster sounds a little like an ex-girlfriend of mine. Did I ever give the impression that I believe Jeremy Hammond is a bad person? Far from it; I think what the Halstead 3 did at the Gay Pride Parade was righteous. And the Chicago Reader article notes how active he had been before that, and after, up until the time of his sentencing. I can well understand how a scared 17-yr old in police custody might be intimidated into giving over evidence (which turned out to be useless). Far too many Chicago activists back then were reflexively judgemental and puritanical - which obviously hasn't changed at all. How much better is it for the anarchist milieu on this web site to celebrate the release from prison of someone whose history of activism they actually know something about?
