Comment: From what I understand, this fellow was a thief.

(See in situ)


From what I understand, this fellow was a thief.

When he was caught and faced time, he couldn't handle it. There is a difference between someone like Bradley Manning who released government documents, something we should all have access to, and Swartz pirating intellectual property that is for sale because he thinks knowledge belongs to everyone.

If I understand this correctly, I am unsympathetic. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Some people have boundary problems, a reflection of personalities still stuck in childhood narcissism. What is this crap about victimless crimes? Didn't he take something that belonged to someone else?

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
