  •  Authorized sources? (0+ / 0-)

    lordy that's rich considering that this whole horrible miscarriage of justice was all about making information and knowledge for free public access. 'Authorized sources' meaning whatever total bs. the DoJ decides merit's prosecuting and persecuting someone who fought for open sources not authorized ones. What gets me is that people defend this. Nothing belongs to the public anymore the only authorized recourses are all owned and for profit. Public is a dirty word these days it's a crime to access anything that bypasses the walls set up by the owners of the place after all were not authorized.

      of Swartz's break-in at MIT, including some that show him attempting to hide his face, have made it to the Internet in today's news, thus his acts and consciousness of guilt are no longer arguable.

      Facts are facts, and illegal acts have consequences.  Individuals seldom get a pass because of the "honorable" intent of their acts.  What's the old adage?  "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time"?
