Me too but it's not going to happen is it ?
I feel sorry for the him but he is hardly a fall guy. If he was snooping around computer's that allowed him access to your bank account detail's would you feel so sorry for him.
I know it was not a banking computer that was just a example but he was poking his nose in and was found out.
Another what if for you.
What if he was never found out ? What would he be upto today ?

Then he should be tried and imprisoned in the UK no in the USA. Simple, I amsick and tired of the UK acting like a state of the US. It is about time weinthe uk told our mps we have had enugh of this.
In fact I have written to my MP. Imforming him of this. I certainly hope alotof other people in the UK are doing the exact same thing.
What if I lived in a country with no real law, and I started hacking into the U.S files.
If they know I am not going to be punished by my own country, then more than likely they would want to extradite whomever it is.
Home Secretary Alan Johnson has said he would be breaking the law if he blocked hacker Gary McKinnon's extradition.
But writing in the Sunday Times, Mr Johnson said: "It would be unlawful for the home secretary to intervene."
He said after a court rules there is enough evidence, a home secretary can prevent an extradition only in very specific circumstances, none of which applied in Mr McKinnon's case.
The home secretary also denied that extradition law was wrong, arguing that it was appropriate for "an age where crime is increasingly indifferent to national borders".

We need to rescue this guy. He is on our side. Without people like him we wouldn't know half of what we do.
No one knows the official charge.
It seems you only want him to be tried in the UK because you know the punishment will not be bad at all.
