    Will you set up a court of "Britians who break American laws"?
    No, we should take into account what occured in US and the laws broken there and apply it fairly onto him along with the laws broken in UK and he can do the time in UK

    Let's not hold our breath. This is Labour we are talking about.
    If the UK government doesn't want him extradited then that is their business and their right as a country.However once they choose to let this alleged hacker be extradited to the US then if the US finds the individual guilty he should be punished under US law and incarcerated in US prisons. The UK has no obligation top punish him on their soil, if he didn't break any UK laws or hack into any UK computers. IF all they are going to do is fly him all the way here,try him over here in the US in a US court, and then fly him back to the UK with the expectation that they'll punish him then that is a waste of time and money.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    And under what law or statute would this even be valid? There is no precedent for this that I'm aware of.

    By rejecting extradition and our established treaties you open up a can of worms.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
