Thats very cynical! Actually, we don’t all live in a country with a broken legal system, where hearsay is accepted as evidence, plea-bargaining is the norm, and there are political and economic influences on Judges.

Oh come on, what kind of argument is that? Are you honestly proposing that an invasion of privacy has not taken place because the victims "don't deserve any sympathy"?

If I leave my house or car unlocked, then it is more than likely that I will be burgled, but that is no justification for someone to enter my property and rifle my goods! Someone who did that is still guilty of theft. The fact that I have been foolish is no defence for the robber! Foolishness is not a crime (obviously, or half the world would be in prison) burglary and trespass are.

If you leave the keys in the ignition you only have yourself to blame if someone steals your automobile. Any idiot can take your car. No expertise required. Hacking a cellphone left on the original default pin code is the same. If expert phone hackers were brought in by News of the World then this is serious. From what I have read this is not the case.

So in other words, the NOTW journalists are not guilty of reading other peoples private emails because they didnt have to put as much effort into doing it??????
