Don't leak my address: Astonishing plea from WikiLeaks boss as he tries to get bail
MailOnline ^ | 15 Dec 10 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 12/15/2010 11:17:04 AM PST by seanmerc

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange tried to hide his bail address from the public in an astonishing move for the man responsible for leaking thousands of diplomatic secrets.

Assange's lawyers argued that the location - a 10-bedroom stately home - should not be disclosed on grounds of privacy during yesterday's hearing at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court.

But the move was dismissed by District Judge Howard Riddle, who ruled not to reveal the address would conflict with Assange's commitment to open justice.

The judge insisted the address - Captain Vaughan Smith's Ellingham Hall on the Norfolk/Suffolk border - was read out in open court as usual.

He is concerned about his safety on the street.. they should assure it by lots of security around his solitary confinement. Gotta keep this man safe until the full conspiracy is exposed!

I've heard people say that the crime of murder should be punished with 30 days in jail. Then, in the newspaper, publish their address and the date of their expected release.

Expected result: society will deal with the problem.

Speaking of rich... anti-establishment liberals seem to do really well.

Must be a lot of money in the “hating America” business. That makes sense; just look at Al Gore.

Anarchy is great! As long as it’s getting him laid by the easy hippy chicks. But then it’s bad when he needs it to be.

Other than making murderous vigilantism America’s other national pastime, it’s great for a laugh.

How ironic. If or when Julian Assange returns home, it should be to a burning pile of rubble.

That would be at least ‘some’ measurement of justice.
