Lord Carlile of Berriew, the government's independent reviewer of terrorism laws, has spoken out against the proposed extradition of London hacker Gary McKinnon to the US.
McKinnon stands accused of accessing and damaging 92 US government computers holding information on national defence, but has argued that he should be tried in the UK because the conditions of detention he would face if convicted in the US would be degrading and an infringement of his human rights.
In a letter seen by The Guardian, Lord Carlile asked home secretary Jacqui Smith to help McKinnon to be prosecuted in the UK because "the acts of hacking occurred within our jurisdiction".

Just out of curiousity, how does anyone know without any doubt that he was genuinely serching for UFO info? Nobody knows what really went on in his head on that day. It`s impossible to know without actually being him.
Think about it. If someone hacked into YOUR personal computer and left you cocky messages, would`nt you want to kick his butt and hope he gets the maximum prision sentance?
Perrsonally, I`d want to beat the living daylights out of him regardless of what he was searching for. UFO info or not, he had no business unlawfully accessing those computers.
