I dont approve what Gary did but a serious way to help him is this one

David Gilmour of Pink Floyd has contributed to a song called Chicago/Change the World in support of Gary McKinnon, who faces 6 charges for hacking 97 Pentagon and NASA computer systems.

The song, by Graham Nash and originally recorded by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, has been treated to new lyrics by Gary's mother, Janis Sharp, which Graham has generously approved. The song is addressed to US President Barack Obama, and highlights Gary's perilous legal position as he continues his seven-year fight against deportation, which, under the terms of the treaty, does not require the US to produce any proof of wrongdoing; however, the agreement is not reciprocal and the treaty, originally put in place by then-Home Secretary David Blunkett, has been much criticised for the way in which UK citizens only are exposed to deportation without a domestic judicial process. Nick Mason and Guy Pratt were not involved.

According to Chrissie Hynde, "Gary McKinnon is clearly not a terrorist, and the US is in danger of using a sledgehammer treaty to crush him like a nut. The US doesn't allow its own Nationals to be tried abroad, so let Gary be free to face the music in his own country".

David Gilmour played Keyboards, Bass and electric guitar. He also sang a verse. Chrissie Hynde is the main vocalist.

Help gary here

Downloaded it.

I feel sorry for the guy, he has Asperger's syndrome and in my opinion he has been through enough now because of what he did.

It is a bad situation, with his disease especially. But the US does not take kindly to someone hacking into DoD files. I hope a peaceful resolution comes out of this, I also wonder what he did see about UFOs. It is said that he found evidence of free energy and such but we will likely never know. Anyways, good heartfelt thread my friend, hopefully things will work out for him.
