Money Talks

So, Christopher Chaney, the Scarlett Johansson hacker, got out of jail on a $10,000 bond. I'd love to know where that came from. They let him out with a bunch of conditions, including third party custodianship and no internet access, but if convicted he could face up to 121 years in prison. The FBI and the justice system want this to be a warning that cyber-hacking is a real threat. Under normal circumstances, sure, but especially when there are celebrity boobs involved. That's why you see people get two months' probation in this country for hacking people who aren't famous, hot, and white.

I'd also like to point out that the justice system has yet to think it's important to prosecute people who commit torture of kidnapped foreign citizens.

But at least the media is completely ignoring what's happening on Wall Street and around the country, and isn't that what's really important?

I'd also like to mention that the FBI hasn't proven the guy they hounded to death for the Anthrax mailings actually did it.
