    I totally agree. Every "appeal" which fails...he says he's going to a "higher court" or whatever. Does my head in. Lock him away and throw away the key...which of course the yanks want to do.

    Well done to both of you with a lack of understanding of aspergers. Your compassion is amazing.

    Yes, he broke the law, but there are extenuating circumstances. The claims that he 'hacked' are over-emphasised also - he accessed machines which were not protected. His skills were about as advanced as the average 12 year old.

    Why is it so important that he get extradited? Why can't they actually use the UK's laws? Rather than dropping the cases all the time?

    This has now been going on for 9 years, enough is enough. They should just prosecute him over here and be done with it!

    One way extradition laws, just for this.

    If you cant lock down some internet PCs at the heart of government, they deserve everything they get.... you done a crappy job and someone found a hole. Move on and stop making him out to be some master hacker.

    McKinnon's an idiot. He got caught and should be man enough to take the punishment. UFOs - lamest excuse on the planet.

    Opinions usually have some sort of factual grounds to them. ie. evidence is looked at and then an opinion built up from that. Rather than " Does my head in. Lock him away and throw away the key...which of course the yanks want to do." which is just a rant seemingly without any basis.

    I welcome your explanation for your opinion though...

    The explanation falls perfectly within the behaviour someone with Asperger's would exhibit. ie. they get onto something, and then obsessively engage in whatever it is, regardless of the detrimental outcomes it could have. I'd recommend [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Loving-Mr-Spock-Different-Kind/dp/0718146425"]Loving Mr Spock: A Different Kind of Love: Amazon.co.uk: Barbara Jacobs: Books[/ame] as a good book to show you how someone with Asperger's behaves.

    How about....he shouldn't have "hacked" in the first place. If he isn’t capable of stopping himself from doing things like this (due to his condition)...then maybe he shouldn't be left near a computer unsupervised in the first place.

    And bollox does an opinion have to have some factual evidence. An opinion is an opinion....NOTHING to do with fact...otherwise it wouldn’t be an opinion in the first place...it would be a fact.

    Once again...deal with it.

    When he is finished with the aspergers excuse he will start playing the religious card most probably. So he hacked PCs that were not protected - does that mean it's ok to go into a shop that has not been locked up and help yourself ? And if you get caught blame aspergers ?
    Prosecute him anywhere - just stop wasting money on this time wasting UFO loving moron.

    +1!!

    He committed the alleged crime in the UK, so try him in the UK.

    Then consider giving him a job

    Chop his hands off, then he can't hack or do whatever he was doing with this hands. That will also help his aspergers too. He will have to start talking to his UFO loving buddies with feet language....
