I, Barrett Brown, Have Returned

{{ currentIndex+1 }} / {{ images.length }}

Four years ago, after my overly dramatic arrest by the FBI, I vowed to return to Dallas at the time of its greatest peril, or anyway I meant to vow this. Now I have fulfilled the promise I definitely intended to make; my sentence complete, on Tuesday I rode from a South Texas prison with my mom and dad and Alex Winter for some reason to a halfway house 20 minutes south of downtown. I live in a room with five drug dealers. We have a TV and an Xbox 360. When I came in, they were watching the 1990 Charlie Sheen vehicle Navy Seals, a film of extraordinary obnoxiousness. Further reports will follow.

Special thanks to Julian Assange and Sarah Harrison for releasing the 60,000 HBGary emails in honor of my release. Greetings to my various enemies. Down with all human institutions.

Barrett Brown Gets Shipped Off to a Medium Security Prison

Another column by Barrett Brown has just been published by The Intercept. It's a delight to read, as always. But he got busted for snorting morphine and has been transferred to a higher security prison in South Texas. So it's a rather depressing column, too.

This is not an official moniker, but if the authorities don't follow my lead when coming up with a catchy handle for the woman who has robbed 10 banks so far, why even bother naming things?

Barrett Brown To Be Sentenced Tomorrow

Tim is the resident Barrett Brown expert, but we are all busy trying to make sure we have Christmas around here, which has led to about eight fires, and Tim is directly involved in putting out at least four or five of them. So, it falls to me to tell you that tomorrow morning Barrett will find out if he's got to spend any more time in the joint. I hope the answer is no, but I also enjoy his writing about prison life. So -- no, I hope he gets out ASAP. #freebarrettbrown
