Cyrus Andrew Sullivan of Portland, Oregon is a former political prisoner, web developer, and internet entrepreneur turned anti-government misconduct activist. He began his web development career shortly after graduating from the University of Oregon in 2008. He built several well-known websites that were featured on national television more than once.

His old fleet of websites was really gaining steam in 2012 when he was targeted by a deranged stalker. He then threatened the stalker and was sent to federal prison. It was a selective prosecution for the purpose of shutting him down. It worked because the Government has no problem working with provocateurs as long as their basic ideologies align, so if you are on their side you can do whatever you want and if the person you target fights back then that person will be prosecuted for fighting back. Then a judge of similar ideology will use the provocation as a justification to prohibit the person from doing anything related to the conflict while on supervision. As a result, Sullivan became a second-class citizen that no longer enjoyed the protection of the Constitution because ever since it was signed, judges have been working hard to find reasons not to apply it equally to everyone. Whether the founding fathers would have wanted it that way is irrelevant to those that see the Constitution as a barrier to getting what they want.

Once out of prison, the Government abused Sullivan’s release conditions to the point that he was not even able to use a computer in a productive way until he had less than three months left on supervision. This website was built at a time when the software he was forced to install on his computer for monitoring reasons broke the machine. He was in a position where he could not legally use any of his skills to look for other work and he was not going to take it anymore. He built this website, posted home addresses of many people responsible for persecuting him in the process, and went back to jail on a violation. He expected that he would be arrested, so he made sure that this site would stay active no matter what happened in court.

While in jail, Sullivan was frequently used his wiliness to dox law enforcement personnel as a means of persuading jail staff to do what he wanted. Eventually they had enough, they assaulted him, and broke his arm. Then they tried to put him away for a long time by accusing him of assaulting the people that broke his arm. After failing to prove that they were injured, Sullivan was released in late 2018. In June of 2019 he was finally able to get online again. This time the new monitoring software caused no problems at all and he was able to start speaking out against those that abused him and those in similar positions that abuse others similarly situated to how Sullivan used to be situated.
