Yeah, I'll give
you a statement from him. I know him, his
friends and his family well, and I've been
in the company of those that have visited
him. Consider this statement below, from
him, as authoritative:
GET ME OUTTA HERE!!
He is now
extremely depressed. He's been 15 days in
custody [as of Nov. 15], and he
was punched a couple of times for no
reason [by other prisoners] ,and
now he feels like he's going to spend a
LONG time in jail. Bail in the U.S.
apparently will be hundreds of thousands
of dollars. He has four kids, who miss him
impossible that NSI lost any real money
(they're gonna get those customers who
apparently were too stupid to click on the
real link to Inter.NIC at the Alter.NIC
page; it's not like they can go somewhere
else to buy a .com address), and because
the wire fraud charge is only valid if
there was $5,000 worth of lost business,
it looks to me like the charge is bogus.
They want this guy and don't care how they
Look at it this
way: Eugene wanted to compete with the
legacy root servers. The US Government
runs the legacy root servers and prevents
his business from being able to compete
with the InterNIC. Then the USG has him
arrested on trumped up charges. By it's
inaction to do something about the mess it
has created with the cluster of IANA, NSI,
NSF, etc., the USG is the one who is in
the wrong and should be embarrassed.
Eugene is being
railroaded. For him to be locked up for
having a social conscience is
unconscionable. To ruin a man's life over
a political protest serves nobody well.
