Matthew was released from prison sometime in September of 2011. Thanks to War On Society for the heads up!

DePalma is an anarchist convicted of illegally possessing Molotov cocktails allegedly intended to be used at the Republican National Convention and against the police outside the convention. The government indictment stated that between August 22, 1008 and August 29, 2008, DePalma began to build roughly about five Molotov cocktails. Police started watching him during a CrimeThinc Convergence near Waldo, Wis. It was here where they claim he devised his plan to use explosives to disrupt the RNC at the Xcel Center. He was arrested on August 30, 2008 by agent of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force at a residence in Minneapolis. The plan involved tunnels near the center and using explosives to destroy cables and cause a power outage. As with the more recent arrests, a great deal of evidence against DePalma has come from the assistance of a paid informant. DePalma pleaded guilty on October 21, 2008. He pleaded guilty to 1 count of possession of destruction device.

  1. Matthew Depalma aka “Shades McGee” is a close comrade of ours and is one of the few set up by the feds in RNC related investigations. He was entrapped by Andrew “Panda” Darst ( and is now doing fed time in Fairton FCI.

    We have put some of Shade’s prison writings online at

  2. After more than six months of incarceration Matthew’s security designation has been reduced to ‘low’ and he has said that he was scheduled to be moved to FCI Milan. We’ve been tracking him at and he has passed through the Oklahoma transfer facility and as of 1/17 he is at FCI Elkton, although it is possible he is still going to be moved to Milan eventually so check at for updates.

    Also he’s doing OK and still wants letters!
