it is an act of rebellion. good for him. similar to the token non lethal weathermen explosion at the pentagon. not meant to hurt, meant to be a symbol. if it pisses you off it is simply because you chose the wrong side. what can I say? better prepare yourself mentaly, spiritualy and physicaly because the "disease" that you call liberalism is called common sense by most people on the planet. most people do not believe as you do, as much as television, news, and media try to sell you the oposite. anyway, you can't stop us without a prison state and shoot if it don't look like you probably won't have the money to fund one of those on a global level anytime soon. hackers rule. they are nothing more than an extension of the minds that gave you your internet in the first place.

I'm afraid for his sake that they are going to make an example out of him for the campain. Pretty much throw the book at him to "show the public how rep's deal with criminals" and most likely label him as a "terrorist" before it's over.

The guy is just a kid, granted he did something bad but he should not go to prison over it, he did no harm to any property and the email account he busted into is owned by Yahoo, not Sarah Palin.

I dont understand how you get caught hacking, the guy musta just got lucky answering security questions. Because any hacker with a brain would have used free wifi. What a tard.

They could still trace the MAC but yeah, he was just a kid pulling a prank to show off. You can plainly see that when he admitted to doing it on 4chan then his dad was on the news, he had to of told everyone just to make a show.

This is why we have so many problems with kids- because we feel bad for them when they 'show off' and get caught.

He turned himself in, but only after they knew who he was and that he did it.

Send him to jail- where all other hackers of peoples private information should be.

I dont care how old he is, or what his motives were. Maybe if we did this with more criminals, we would have less problems with them as they get older.
