On 9/4, Sherman Austin started serving a 1-year federal prison sentence for
having an "illegal link" on his website. The link in question, which
included bomb-making information, was authored by a white boy from Orange
County, the son of wealthy Republicans. That boy was never charged with any
crime, but Sherman, who is a young, black anarchist in Los Angeles, has been
hounded by the FBI and is now doing time for linking to this other kid's
website.
