re: Stratfor Hacker: FBI Entrapment Shaped My Case
Whether there was entrapment or not this time, these were not his first hacking crimes. Of course even if it was entrapment the fact that evidence doesn't exist to prosecute him for the other crimes of course doesn't make it right to falsely convict him in this case but it does seem to achieve a little justice.

Like John McAfee's recent exploits, Sabu's story still sounds like an unbelievable novel.

Based on his supporter's arguments, if you rob a bank to give money to the less fortunate, you should not be charged. Ludicrous.

While I agree with you ... yeesh, I really wish the government didn't align itself with people like Sabu.
