And the hacker is...
My name is David KernellI am 15 a white cacasian male i live in memphis, TN.
This bio was posted in 2003 to a blog linked to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Now he would be about 20. There is a democrat representative from TN named Mike Kernell.
I read though the emails ALL OF THEM before I posted, and what I concluded was anticlimactic, there was nothing there, nothing incriminating, nothing that would derail her campaign as I had hoped, all I saw was personal stuff, some clerical stuff from when she was governor . And pictures of her family.
I then started a topic on /b/, peeps asked for pics or gtfo and I obliged, then it started to get big
Earlier it was just some prank to me, I really wanted to get something incriminating which I was sure there would be, just like all of you anon out there that you think there was some missed opportunity of glory, well there WAS NOTHING, I read everything, every little blackberry confirmation all the pictures, and there was nothing, and it finally set in, THIS internet was serious business, yes I was behind a proxy, only one, if this shit ever got to the FBI I was fed, I panicked, i still wanted the stuff out there but I didnt know how to rapid[share] all that stuff, so I posted the pass on /b/, and then promptly deleted everything, and unplugged my internet and just sat there in a comatose state
He’ll be popular in supermax.
This kid is the poster boy for all the hardcore left wing types of the internets...a weak looking 20 something trying to act gangsta online while really living in their parents’ basement.
Busted! All your life belong to us,kiddo. Wasn't the FBI, it was Secret Service.
What made him think he wouldn't get caught? They don't take Sarah Palin as VP seriously? they think it's a joke/political bit on TV? Joke's on them.
Because his father is a state rep, I don’t expect him to receive the same punishment as any other person. A slap on the hand at most.
He’ll meet a lot of new “friends”!
He would be considered elderly over at DU...
He loooks like a gutless little wussie - typical DemocRat.
Hope his little butt gets fried big time if he did it.
Most Dems are real thugs around election time. Guess he is just a chip off the old block(head).
I’m concerned, since his father has money and connections, the 20 year old will get NO JAIL TIME! In which case we must organize protest marches every day in front of the court house. He MUST NOT be allowed to get NO jail time. It would not be fair. If he gets just probation, he will be laughing every day about it!
They should send him to the Marines.
Is it me, or do those eyes just scream “I’m so wasted...”
More info. Dad confirmed.
Those men and women are willing to take a bullet to protect those they are assigned to.
One of my brothers best friend served in the secret service under everyone from Nixon to Bush 41.
He is very closed lipped about that time, but did mention once that Carter could smile as he stabbed you in the back.
Looks like a guilty putz to me.
I wouldn’t be surprised. For a long time now, I’ve thought Carter to be an evil bastard.
“...it finally set in, THIS internet was serious business, yes I was behind a proxy, only one, if this shit ever got to the FBI I was fed”
Got that right, sunshine...
Do you have a link to his My Space?
WoW! Imagine the “new” love he is in store for...it could make some of those sences out of the Shawshank Redemption look pleasant...a.k.a. tossed salad man.
I really, really, really hope to hell it was worth it.
Just go to myspace and lookup David Kernell.
The Marines don’t take wussies like this little scum!
Its been cleaned.
“Come find me at Oak Court Mall, you bitches!”
Punk @ss b@st@rd!
Let me guess, he lives in his parents’ basement, spending his days playing ‘World of Warcraft’ and text messaging his friends about how he will rule the world...
“he lives in his parents basement”
what’s his pw?
I just went to check the dummie's reaction to this story. I had to scroll way down before I found a thread on the subject. I guess they aren't very interested in it. Here is a sampling of pithy DU comment. Cleaned up a little.
In my view, this kid, if proven responsible for the incursion into Palin's email, is a whistleblower and deserves protection from the law. Palin is not supposed to conduct official business in outside email accounts.
Good luck with that one.
As someone who does computer stuff a lot, I have nothing but enmity for those of any political stripe who would abrogate the privacy of another, regardless of their party affiliation. Also, if he was a sincere whistleblower, he should have secured a lawyer familiar with the process and proceeded with his evidence with the counsel of said lawyer. Yes, his evidence does clearly show official malfeasance on the part of Palin and others. But the manner in which he handled it, posting it on that internet s***hole "4chan", points to the sad fact that he was not a sincere, altruistic whistleblower, but one of the rabble that hangs there, the rabble that does stuff like that and posts it there to receive the accolades of the assembled. Accolades that tend to be accompanied with a lot of drool. Maybe he should have stuck with the nude photographs that underage girls post of themselves there. The fact is, the kid is gonna go down hard. His a** is in a legal woodchipper. A lot of political heavyweights are gonna be vying for his head, mounted and hung on the wall of their cigar parlor.
I wonder how much of the the computer stuff he does involves checking out nude photos of underage girls.
This kid will get a surprisingly harsh sentence and yet, a bunch of people who exposed a CIA agent (against all law) get talk shows on Faux ...
Is this a reference to Valerie Plame? Dude, get over it!
Republicans will probably try to put him in gitmo.
Its been suggested more than once right here at FR.
What a little pussy....drop him off at my boxing club. My guys would love to show him a few things.
It's not just you.
Little creep POS needs some serious jail time for this.
I look forward to meeting this strapping young Memphian from my perch in midtown. We’ll chat. :)
Well, assuming he sees daylight again before I blow this joint.
BTW, he always outshot me. ;-)
“Sunday, June 15, 2003this page is dedicated to showing what has happend to scociety these days, now i am not going to be a hipicrit here and say im “fair and balanced” like FOX news, it is imposible to do so, we are humans and are very falable, but less than perfect is better than nothing, its much like limits in calculus, you can get infintely close to the variable but it is impossible to reach it. Also, this is intertwined a bit with my expriences because most of our behaviors are formed by scociety and our experienes. My name is David KernellI am 15 a white cacasian male i live in memphis, TN. My favorite and only hobby is chess, more like an obsession. I am not afraid to say that i have acute depression and have been institutionalized twice, one at th age of 9 in Texas and one this past year. I have been strugleing with this for my entire life and have finally come to the conclusion that being stoic in most of life's issues is of the untmost importance. i have to go to sleep now, its 2 AM here. notice, i never say goodbye or c ya”
please save that someone with puter knowledge....
Sounds to me like this kid has serious “mommy issues.”
Maybe the Rats should drag whatsizname outta mothballs to sing “I ain’t no senator’s son blah blah blah.”
He'd be so adorable when they send him into one of those terrorist spider holes, let the camel humpers have their ways with him, then have the leathernecks come in popping skulls.
Might make amends for his cyber "indiscretions".
Maybe more issues than that. Check out his favorite flash movies on this site.
How proud his “public servant” father must be.
