Sean Swain is a hostage held by a lawless rogue-state calling itself “The State of Ohio.” He has been held without legal conviction or sentence since 1991 for the self-defense killing of a court official’s relative who broke into Sean’s home and threatened his life. In 2011, the Ohio Adult Parole Authority gave Sean a continuance of 5 years without notifying his counsel of a full-board hearing as required by statute. None of the State’s laws apply in Sean Swain’s case. His next parole eligibility date is in 2016 but there is no reason to believe the State will have any greater regard for justice or truth than it does now, so Sean has stated that he will not attend that hearing.
Sean is the only son of a retired auto worker and stay-home mom. He has renounced his high school diploma, his college degree, and his honorable discharge from the U.S. military. Before being taken hostage, Sean worked as a newspaper columnist and as a union organizer.
According to the federal courts, Sean’s prison writings “promote anarchy and rebellion against authority.” Since he has been stripped of all constitutional protections he has been forced to write underground like writers in all fascist police states. His work is available for free in print and on-line because the system of capital sucks and nobody should be paid for telling the truth.
Sean ran for Ohio Governor in 2006 and 2010 on a Zapatista platform that in many ways prefigured the Occupy Movement. He supports arming the homeless, burning down banks and courthouses, abolishing the State, and dismantling civilization in order to make something better. Though innocent of any crime, and though he is held without legal conviction or sentence, Sean will only be liberated when the illegitimate power of the lawless rogue state holding him hostage is abolished once and for all.
The State started the war. Sean Swain intends to finish it.
