NYC ABC Update on Daniel McGowan’s Reimprisonment


We got word late yesterday that Daniel McGowan was told he wouldn’t be issued a pass to go to work the next day. According to his keepers at the halfway house, this denial came at the direction of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP). When he followed up, Daniel was told that it wasn’t merely a denial of a work pass, but a restriction on all movement. When asked if that meant federal marshals were coming to get him the next day, the halfway house administrators told him they didn’t know.

The state, and its for-profit halfway house minions, were clearly in collusion. This is just another way that opacity is used to mindfuck folks left to twist in the wind, not knowing what the future holds.

From our understanding, the reason for his re-imprisonment is directly related to an article Daniel recently wrote for the Huffington Post. An attorney with the Center for Constitutional Rights has been to visit Daniel at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. Once we know more, we’ll pas the information on.

For now, take time to send Daniel a card or letter. Let him know that regardless of how the state treats him, we have his back.

  1. […] There is also an article posted by NYC ABC, which you can read here. […]

  2. […] McGowan had been released to halfway house as a condition of his early release last December. He received word last night that he would not be allowed to leave for work today and was not given an answer as to whether this meant that he would be taken into custody. The New York Anarchist Black Cross, a prisoner support and advocacy organization, says that McGowan’s re-imprisonment is a result of his writing the Huffington Post article. There is no word yet from the government as to their justification for taking McGowan back into custody. For updates, visit the NYC ABC. […]
