Thanks EveningStar. A flaming lib, and a thief who *got caught*.
Feds: Harvard fellow hacked millions of papers

[snip] A Harvard University fellow who was studying ethics was charged with hacking into the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s computer network to steal nearly 5 million academic articles. [/snip]
The urinalist at the Daily News called the perp’s breaking and entering, hacking, vandalism, and theft as “swiping”. Swartz was facing $1 million fine and years in prison for his crime.
The “excuse” does not add up...the schools dropped the charges, but the Feds doubled down on the “big bad” nanny state/big government hater...hardly the profile of a “flaming lib”.
