A Spokane anarchist named Travis Riehl is being brought before a grand jury because of his alleged involvement in the tagging of a military recruiting station. As evidence, the fucking state claims that pictures of the action were posted on Riehl's group, SLAC's myspace page. The picture also had the camera it came from embedded in it, and the camera was found upon searching Riehl's house. They also have an audio recording, though what it specifically says, and how it came to exist (phone tap, mic in his house, fed wearing a wire) is unknown, but police say he also claimed on the audio recording to know who was responsible for a Hummer being burned in 2004, an action the ELF took credit for.
A video interview done with a local news station can be found at http://www.kxly.com/news/?sect_rank=1§ion_id=559&story_id=13801
In the video, Reihl speaks about his belief in property destruction, his organization's beliefs and structure, and his personal ideology. Reihl is being criticized on various anarchist and leftist sites for being a braggart about the actions, and for giving the corporate media more info than they need... info which could potentially be used in a later court case to implicate himself and his group members. A previous poster on indymedia had this to say:
"This should be another example of why being a braggart only lands you in prison. With the green scare, grand jury inditements, and snitch culture poking it's ugly head into our scene, we can't afford to lose anymore soldiers. keep your lips sealed!"
