Sherman only had a link.
"They locked up sherman because he ran a website who's stated intent is to combat the government." That's incorrect. Sherman linked to a site, which he was hosting but was not affiliated with nor did he author. This was the web site that contained the "bomb making info". The information on this site was put up for the IMF world bank meetings. Again, Sherman didn't author any bit of this site. Now, if Sherman is being locked up because his intent was to combat the government, then how come the person who created and authored the site which the bomb making info was on, encouraging people to use it at IMF world bank protests, wasn't even touched?! The fact of the matter is if the point was to catch criminals ,or "intent", than the person who had the original site would be in jail, not Sherman. The issue was clearly not about what was posted; it was about taking Sherman and raisethefist down. It was about destroying something that was promoting free thought and expression. Here are the facts of the case:
1) The "explosives information" was on a separate web site that Sherman was not affiliated with.
2) Sherman did not author nor did he create this web site or the "explosives information".
3) The FBI knows Sherman did not author , nor did he create or implement the pages that dealt with explosives because they've already interviewed the kid who created the site and authored the explosives info. However, they continue to state Sherman implemented, authored, and created these pages on explosives.
4) Sherman merely posted a link on his web site to this separate web site. This is something internet users do every day. This is not unique, this is not a crime (or is it when they decide it is).
5) The FBI used the "explosives information" as an excuse to come after Sherman. The FBI didn't care about information on explosives being made available over the internet. There is detailed information on pipe bombs, grenades, napalm, TNT, dynamite, nuclear bombs, etc. readily available all over the internet. If someone were to build an explosive for illegal purposes they would not rely on raisethefist.com. You can go to Howthingswork.com and enter the word "explosives" to find detailed instructions on how to make a variety of incendiary devices.
6) Sherman is being used by the government to set an example.
