The United States V Auernheimer...

I believe in the US prosecutors are appointed / hired.
Congress may get to run them through the ringer, but there is
no election for them.

In the US, hackers are the new witches
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, March 22 2013 @ 07:37 AM EDT
Te cheye.net - Link

All this puts the US in a difficult position. On one hand the Empire is suffering from hacking attacks on companies with huge security holes. At the same time it is locking up anyone who exposes those security holes. The end result will be all the security experts will shut up about the US and give the nation over to hackers elsewhere. They will move offshore where their skills are appreciated.

We knew back in 1984, when the law was passed, that it could
be abused. It didn't seem as likely back then. But we knew
that we all did things that we could be convicted for.

It is just one of many badly written knee-jerk laws. Look,
voters, we are doing something!

Good to see Kerr grasping the bootstrapping of a State misdemeanor
to commit a Federal felony. Swartz had the same count against him
and at the time I thought that was just plain wrong.

I await the Federal response to Kerr's claim that the case was wrongly
brought in New Jersey, since nothing in the commission of the
alleged crime occurred in or near New Jersey. Did the Feds subpoena
iPad owners from NJ who demonstrated actual harm?
Shades of Alice's Restaurant. What was the address on that envelope?
