Sabu should be in jail and Aykroyd and Hammond should be free. And Preska should be censured.
But it will never happen. Not in this political climate. Hell, the majority of Americans think Snowden did the right thing. Not necessarily think he's a hero like I do but that he should have done what he did. And the USA Government still wants to put him away for life.
We live in a country that allowed a judge, Preska, whose husband was a "victim" of Lulzsec, decide Jeremy Hammond's fate. A whistle blower in jail for a decade. A judge that legally had the duty to recuse herself. A judge who then called the rat that helped the FBI capture other hacktivists from Lulzsec and the only one that actually stole money, "extraordinary. " Another Lulzsec member in prison for two decades in the UK.
Have we already gone too far to turn back?
