Re: The Greedy Hacker

It's not about what is perceived as legal and what is not. Like it or not, some thing (while not written as law in such details ways) is still convictable each and every day. If it wasn't, we wouldn't be reading this story. Either this guy had an idiot for a lawyer or the judge (while upholding the written law) still found something to convict about. The law is bent each and every day by both those that are criminals and those that are in law enforcement. Sure, you can argue all you want about certain things and while certain Constitutional rights are given to you, they are also taken away with small statues to those rights via local/state/federal laws. It is what it is... I don't like it either, but trust me when I say this. If someone wants to convict you of something, you WILL be convicted of it, no matter how much you think it was legal or not. Unfortunately, that's the new way of the law. The best thing you can do is stay within your legal written rights based on where you are. I don't like it, but that's what it has come to and as a single person I'm not going to jeopardize my own well-being by taking a stand against it. All that does is land your singular ass in jail. Thanks, but no thanks...

This guy made millions of dollars from selling information that lead or could lead to illegal actions by others. Someone wanted to shut him down and make an example of... that's what happened. I'm pretty sure there's law somewhere written that allowed this to happen or could be interpreted in such a manner as to allow this to happen. Read the court papers on it if you doubt this.

Not one single Constitutional right has been "given" to one single person. From the Declaration of Independence:
quote:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights ...

The U.S. Constitution grants powers of state to the government, not rights to the people.

... they are also taken away with small statues to those rights via local/state/federal laws.

Most statutes balance my right to pursue happiness against your right to life and liberty.

So you would not have joined die Weiße Rose?

No doubt; just as German law made an example of the key figures of die Weiße Rose.
