Happiness Radio Replay - Barrett Brown interview.

Barrett Brown explains why he was once again detained.

Barrett Brown has been detained and released and once again it’s hard to explain why. There’s no government policy that would pin-point the exact reason the BOP detained him this past week, but they claim it was because he was conducting interviews without getting permission from them ahead of time [a rule that wasn’t previously explained to him nor has it been previously printed in any government document].

Barrett Brown is home again.

As D Magazine reports, Barrett Brown — who was re-arrested last week on the widely criticized basis that he flouted alleged BOP restrictions on speaking to the press — is again out of jail and back at home.

“I got to go back to Seagoville and see some of my old buddies,” Barrett said.
“Then today, they came in and told me, ‘You won. Get your stuff ready.’ An assistant from the halfway house had to come and pick me up in his car.”

D Magazine credits newly hired attorney David Siegal with Barrett’s release.

Siegal gave a written statement on Barrett’s re-imprisonment: The treatment of Barrett Brown by the Bureau of Prisons was unjustified and in violation of his First Amendment Free Speech Rights. Unfortunately, Barrett was forced to spend three days in a federal penitentiary when he should have been out living his life. We are happy we were able to work with Barrett and his family to achieve his return home today.
