IMC posters arrested by FBI
07 Jul 2005
Several posters around the country have been arrested by the local police and FBI after they posted comments on IMC newswire and message boards. Apparently the FBI has been using the Carnivore system to trace posters back to their original locations and then using local pigs to trump up charges in order to gain "legal" warrants.

Three would-be protesters of the G8 summit were apprehended before they could take action and are currently being held without bond. Several others have stated that their homes have been invaded, their belongings destroyed, and their personal computers seized as "evidence".

Apparently the FBI is using a system that is capable of invisibly monitoring websites and gaining the ISP addresses of posters. Beware what you post if you are using a home computer!

I'm surprised a post so newsworthy would have absolutely no data (names of people arrested, towns where they live, or what they posted) in it. maybe Frank could be a little more specific and share a few facts with us. What say?

I've not heard any of this from IMCistas around the world.
And I'm not seeing any corporate media reports or anything.

Might I sound too cliche if I recommend reading Brian Glick's book, "The War At Home?"
