Keith Henson update

The Keith Henson story broke through big-time today into the alternative media. Here's what went down:
  • My coverage of Henson's recent arrest is garnering a fair amount of attention and is being linked to from a number of sites; it was also cross-posted at the IEET site and given a ride on Reddit.

  • R.U. Sirius wrote an excellent article at 10ZenMonkeys. It was subsequently Slashdotted. Huge.

  • Another great article at Daily Kos: Keith Henson and the Great Miscarriage of Justice.

  • Philosopher and neuroscientist Anders Sandberg chimes in: Fighting Bad Enlightenment Business Practices.

  • P2Pnet has also posted an article
  • Now an update: Henson is currently at the Yavapai Detention Center in Prescott, Arizona, awaiting possible extradition to Riverside County, California. Henson has previously received death threats to the effect that he would be killed while serving his sentence. At the "initial appearance" hearing today, Henson stated through counsel that he is fighting extradition and requested release. The court set a future court date for March 5, 2007 at 1:30 pm in the Prescott Justice Court, and fixed the security for his release at $7,500 cash or bond, with standard conditions.

    Please consider a donation to Keith and his family. He has been made bankrupt by this entire ordeal and can use all the help he can get.
