The article didn't say what he found, but what he did. Obviously, he got into some really sensitive information relating to the phenomenon and they want to quiet him with what he found. Then again, hacking is against the law. However, what he did was because he wanted the public to know the truth at his expense. A bit of a Robin Hood of our era trying to find the truth to the cost of himself. I don't like the idea of people hacking into other people's data, but he was searching for something specific of interest to the general public. No doubt he is one of many who will make the attempt until ... [More]

Yeah it does make sense that he found nothing, lots of people are fatally "mugged" ever year, it wouldn't be hard to fake at all.

The young man broke the Law, and caused Damage! Don't you think he should be held accountable for his crimes! I Do! 663719[/snapback] hmm well he did not really harm any one or use the info in a scam but he DID cause a alot of damage so yeah I guess he should go to jail.

I think your all reading too much into this. He is now out on bail and is free to say what he likes. So he didn't get any where near sensitive information.

Of course, this is all assuming that they did let him out? What the media reports and reality are not always the same. I've seen the situation were a fellow is released knowing that he dare not do anything. It is much harder to explain away 'death while in custody'...

He slips on a bar of soap, fallls down two flights of stairs, rolls in to traffic, and is run over by a Bus? It could happen!

Glad they got him.

You also have to remember right after 9/11 there was either one or two I can't remember which guys named as hijackers only they were not dead from plane crash, and were alive and well on the other side of the world.

God almighty, conspiracy theorists...geez...if the government wanted to shut him up, then they'd just have had him murdered. I highly doubt it would be the first or the last time the US government did such a thing The fact that the guy's getting locked up over what he did doesn't in any way indicate that he found "something" and is being shut up...certainly not anyone along the lines you people are thinking. What it means is that he broke the law, and he's going to pay for it. Nothing more, nothing less. Quite frankly, if he had found something, I think the last thing the CIA would want is giv... [More]

So, um, he was supposed to be an expert hacker? Regardless of what he was looking for, a good hacker never gets caught. Sneaky little buggers.
