    Will have to remember that one.....
    The UK and the USA have *very* different justice systems. The USA is a lot more brutal than here, with a lot less attention paid to the accused's well-being than we do in the UK.

    couldnt a compramise of been to try him over here physically but with an american court (and whatever other parafanellia needed) so ship a judge and jury etc over from the states? probabl cheaper than all the hassle so far as well and i doubt this is the end of it

    the problem with the aspergers part is that it dose look like a convinient fact (im not saing its unrue but it does look a bit like someone tring to find any reason to keep him here)

    Which is why independent medical advice was sought and given.

    Our CPS said the evidence they had did not come close to the criminality the US were alleging.

    Well I read the same thing in the Guardian and the Telegraph, so shame on me for not going off and 'checking facts'.

    Honestly this 'Daily Mail' shit got old about 5 years ago.

    I'm glad he's been able to stay; as others have pointed out, he didn't really crack any security as there was naff-all security in place to stop him. The cracking consisted solely of "lets try this account name with 'password' then" and he got in, because senior US military can't grasp the concept of computer security.

    Extradition should be for "crime commited on foreign soil, perpetrator then flees to another country". So if he had been sat at a computer in the US when he did this, realised his number was up and fled back here, then fair enough. But he was here when he commited the crime, so local law should apply. The US should be able to request his prosecution (and bring it privately should they wish to, as is possible in our legal system) and work with our law enforcement to provide evidence, but he should be tried here.

    Just a shame it took so long for reason to prevail.

    Was too dismayed to comment earlier and it would have come out as anger so I am glad someone has said what needed to be said.

    I find it ironic that Theresa May uses the Human Rights Act to stop Mckinnon from being sent. This being the same Human Rights Act the tories want to get rid of..... A fine example of Tory double standards.....
