Hacker w/ #Anonymous Sentenced to 10 Years for Stratfor Hacking

Since I know some of the writers over at Stratfor, yes, this is personal:

Jeremy Hammond, 28, was handed the maximum term for the December 2011 hacking of Strategic Forecasting Inc, an attack his lawyers contend was driven by concern about the role of private firms in gathering intelligence domestically and abroad.

Prosecutors say the hack of Strategic Forecasting, or Stratfor, resulted in the theft of 60,000 credit card numbers and records for 860,000 clients, which were then uploaded online. Hammond admitted being behind it in May.

He also admitted to hacking several law enforcement agencies and organizations, including the Arizona Department of Public Safety, releasing personal details of officers as part of an attack by the Anonymous-affiliated group LulzSec.

Which reminds me ...

1 I have to admit, at this point, I have crooks on one side and a very questionable, potentially murderous but definitely dangerous government on the other side, which is threatening to take away my rights, include the right to bear arms, and whatever else it thinks it can get away with, I suppose, to make any "control measures" easier.

I hope this war between them takes them both down. I really can't trust the government. By the way... your friends... Do you trust them? Really. Seriously? Are you sure that is wise? Now, if it is because you are one of them... Fine. But that means you aren't to be trusted.

2 Hey Doom,
Relax: If you like your constitution, you can keep your
constitution. PERIOD.
And your existing amendments. Well, most of them
except for the Bad Apple and Junk ones...

3 Gah! Hahaha

As to relaxing? I'll relax when I'm dead! Don't push me, I'm already almost there. Sort of a trick though, I've been mostly dead for half of my long life. ;)

4 ....but aren't all the members of Anonymous anarchists, and aren't all the anarchists democrats and voted for Obama who, coincidentally, is a big government statist? The cognitive dissonance is quite mind blowing here. It's all pretty funny to me. I mean, these people are hacking into their big hero's government. Oh my, where's the popcorn?
