The only decent thing Theresa May has ever done is block the extradition of Gary McKinnon to the United States of America for hacking when she was Home Secretary, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/gary-mckinnon-free-man.html. Now Lauri Love, another British citizen, is facing the same fate as
and his position looks far more precarious because the law has been changed
since McKinnon's liberation. Today the decision whether or not to extradite
wanted persons to the USA
cannot be made unilaterally by any politician and is purely in the hands of the
judiciary. There will be a ruling next week on Lauri's fate from a magistrates court.
Mr Love is accused of hacking computers for political motivations;
"hacktivism" as it has become known. Like McKinnon, the British-Finnish
engineering student has allegedly hacked into US government servers including
those in NASA, the Department of Defence, the FBI and the banks of the US Federal
Reserve. He's also said to have accessed the databases of several healthcare
companies; he has taken personal and financial details, although the
authorities admit no money has been stolen. He is supposed to be a member of
Anonymous, the famous worldwide hacktivist group. He was arrested at his family
home in Suffolk in 2013 after supposedly
taking part in "Operation Last Resort", a revenge attack on the
American authorities for the death of Aaron Swartz, a young political activist
who committed suicide after being prosecuted for hacking a university. Under US
law, hacking is a far more serious offence than it is in Britain.
Here a convict faces no more than three years in jail; in the United
States he could be imprisoned for up to ninety-nine
years, effectively a full life sentence. For this reason many of the accused
accept damaging plea bargains that result of them receiving lighter sentences
out of court. In these cases no evidence against them is ever tabled and the offender
cannot defend himself. As I've said before, this acts as a deterrent against
anybody who tries to bring the government to account for their actions. We've
seen the same thing with Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/assange-and-snowden-latest-bombshells.html.
It's also clear that nobody is safe; wherever you live in the world the
government of your nation will roll over and submit to the globalist willpower.
Love's lawyer says that there is a war on whistleblowers. The powers-that-be
are using legal systems to shut down and lock up hackers motivated by conscience;
and also they want to terrorize anybody considering hacking in the future. Like
Gary McKinnon, Lauri Love suffers from Asperger's syndrome. He has had a
nervous breakdown as a result of his prosecution and has come down with eczema.
He harms himself by scratching his skin with his nails. If he ends up in an
American prison he will held under maximum security in solitary confinement. He
will probably not live long. Like Aaron Swartz, he believes he will take his
own life. Here's Lauri Love's support website: https://freelauri.com/.
