    The "end justifies the means" is the mantra of the BDS infected left. Undermining Palin was necessary for the left so anything done in that regards was justified to them.

    Well if he is sent to a real federal prison and not club fed, that smirk will quickly disappear, and will rapidly become a pucker factor of ten.

    state prisons tend to be worse. The highest security fed prisons-say Supermax Florence USP has no assaults. But this mope isn't going to get to a Level IV USP or higher-probably probation after maybe 6 months at a FCI or campl

    Yea your probably right, and to be honest that probably is all he should get considering it is his first offense. Although it does not alleviate the fact that he is a snot nosed dickhead (of course this is just a guess from judging from the photo IMO...I could be dead wrong).

    he ought to get the same sentence that say Pete Rose got-a fed camp in KY or so. Of course Pete Rose is a tough bad arse you wouldn't want to get into a fight with. This kid looks like a prom queen to some of those boys

    I'm not "trying" to do anything. You're looking to score points and you're failing miserably.

    With all the identity theft going on these days, take a lesson from this. When you set up an account don't answer those security questions with your real information. i.e. Use a high school who you liked their colors, mother's maiden name: use a neighbor who lived next to you when you grew up, first pet name: use a cartoon character, etc. Get the drift?

    If somebody wants to hack into any account of yours, and you answered those questions truthfully - you have helped the hacker.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Damn dude I know you're a liberal but please. Trying to defend this kid is just sad.



    hack

    b : to gain access to a computer illegally


    Hack - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
    Far be it for me to agree with ADK, and I'd love to see anyone say he's somehow a favorite of mine, but you're off base.

    If he hadn't put "hack" in quotation marks I'd say you're perhaps correct. But he did, signifying to anyone being objective in reading his context, and not just trying to punch the other side every chance possible, that he was meaning the more commonly thought of term of "hacking" when most hear it. The Mitnicks and Poulsens of the world.

    Using Password crackers, using worms to get information, using packet sniffers, using keyloggers, etc.

    What this kid did was a step below a "script kiddie", let alone a real actual hacker.

    Its kind of like saying that someone plays basketball and someone "is a baller". The kid by definition hacked into her account, but the kid in all reality and common use of it is not a legit hacker.

    What this guy did was the technology equivalent of finding the house key under the welcome mat. Is it illegal? Yes. Is it wrong? Yes. Should he be punished? Yes. Should he be excused? No. Is he some grand hacker or on par with what most people think of when they hear the word 'hacker"? No. Is he likely any kind of threat if he didn't get 25 years? Unlikely unless he gets lucky with a few other people having very stupid security answers.

    Which is in part the point ADK was making....don't put your spare house key under the guest mat, don't make your password and security question something that a monkey with a keyboard and google can determine.
