Lot's of guy's/girl's sticking up for him that's noble.
But what he did was wrong that's what im getting at.
He must have realised what he was letting himself in for if he was found out. Pretty foolish act messing with the American government that's the point i am making.
Play with fire you will get burned.
5000? where did they got that number! the cost of the backup cd's? i guess they use $200 dvds and have to hire an external consultant to come and format and then restore from cds the windoze on their machines
Mr McKinnon has already appealed unsuccessfully to the House of Lords and the European Court of Human Rights and his latest judicial reviews in the High Court are likely to be his last chance.

OK, he did something wrong. He could have had a low-key trial in the UK & had his wrists slapped.

You seem to misunderstand my arguement. If he IS to be tried, then he should be tried in the UK were he will recieve a fair trial, as opposed to tasting American justice which is draconian and unfair to his illness.
That's my point.
The Uk should not bow to the yanks. We have soliders refusing to fight now because the Yanks have warped all that is decent and good about the Uk, and now our government is bending over again to them in this case over the trial of a hacker.
The USA is not our boss, we should not be afraid of America, yet our spineless leaders are taking it up the jacksy from our loud-mouth cousins.
