The Scarlett Johansson Hacker Arrested

A man in Jacksonville, FL, was arrested today for hacking into the cell phones of several actresses and posting their nude pictures online. A crime? Yes. I don't dispute that. I do find it depressing, though, that I live in a country where the sanctity of an actress' smartphone is more important to the FBI than the thousands of other daily privacy violations that occur in this country with government approval, no matter how many courts find them unconstitutional.

So police can get this guy, but Rupert Murdoch is still free to go about his business? Because if anyone other than a rich white businessman hacked into Prince William's phone, they'd probably be dead by now. I guess the Scarlett Johansson thing is more important because boobs.

Just sayin'.

(In other Murdoch news, the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal was caught today artificially inflating its own circulation numbers. Free market or something.)

Amen, brothaa, preach it to the choir.
And in the man's defense, those tits and butt shots really needed to be shared with the world.

The breasts of our actresses must be protected from the masses.
