UPDATE: McGowan Released From Illegal Detention

According to the Center for Constitutional Rights, environmental activist Daniel McGowan was released from Federal prison today after the Bureau of Prisons was informed that the regulation he allegedly violated by posting a blog on Huffington Post was ruled unconstitutional – in 2007. We know there are a lot of amendments to the U.S. Constitution, but we should hope the Bureau of Prisons and Department of Justice could at least remember the first one.

We’re sure this was an honest mistake and not punitive in any way. We’re equally sure it will never happen again.

Welcome back, Daniel.
