Tonight’s musical selection is GRiZ performing “Too Young For Tragedy (DJ Green Lantern Remix).
In August I touched on the case of Jason Hammond, brother of jailed hacktivist Jeremy Hammond. Jason was arrested in connection to a year-old confrontation with white supremacists. Jason is now free on bail, according to the Jason Hammond Support Network. Jason writes:
Firsts and foremost I want to thank all of the truly amazing people that have showed me love and support, I am forever indebted to you. I was bonded out of Cook County Jail late last week and I am now back amongst my beloved community in Chicago. I am happy and on way to pick up where I left off. My heart was warmed by all the letters and messages of solidarity I received and it was very awesome to have communicated with people while in custody. I am excited to be able to start playing music and support my brother Jeremy. In regards to my arrest, I am being charged with allegedly being involved in the interruption of a white supremacist and Neo-Nazi gathering in Tinley Park in May, 2012. While I am bond, I will be able to better work on the defense of my case. So again, thank you all for the support for me and my brother in these times of struggle.
