Barack Obama & The Kentucky state Governor: Pardon and Drop charges against Deric Lostutter of Kentucky for exposing Steubenville, OH. rapists.

      Richard Sims

      Springfield, MO

He is a hacker who exposed evidence of two rapists and helped them get convicted, now they want to send him to prison longer than the rapists just for hacking. Our justice system is highly based on "intent" and in this case, we not only have good intent but a conviction of two rapists. This is a clear case of a man doing what he can to help the victim being punished for doing what is right the only way he knew how, help the rapists get caught.

      Sorry for letting them snoop? Dell apologizes for 'inconvenience' caused by NSA backdoor

      Security researcher Jacob Appelbaum dropped a bombshell of sorts earlier this week when he accused American tech companies of placing government-friendly backdoors in their devices. Now Texas-based Dell Computers is offering an apology.

      Grand jury chosen to investigate Ohio rape by football players

      By Drew Singer (Reuters) - Prosecutors selected a grand jury on Monday that will investigate whether more crimes were committed when a 16-year-old girl was raped last year by high school football players in Steubenville, Ohio, authorities said. Quarterback Trent Mays, 17 and wide receiver Ma'lik Richmond, 16, were convicted last month of raping a classmate after a party last August.

      If any of us were victims of a similar crime, would we want this man to go to prison? Who in their right mind, would even consider throwing this man in prison for a decade? We need to let our Government know we won't stand by and let him go to prison. All our voices will be heard! Let's get more signatures so that we can not, and will not, be ignored.

      Hero Hacker Deric Lostutter Outed Steubenville Rapists, Now Faces Prison Time

      The justice system can be difficult for the layman to understand, but this case has us really scratching our heads. Deric Lostutter, a security consultant that uses the online handle KYAnonymous, faces up to a decade more prison time than the Steubenville rapists for hacking crimes that helped to convict the scumbag football stars.

      The Rapist should be punished, and the police should apologise for failing to bring this to light. Shameful behaviour of a governing force that the people put their trust in.

      I have daughters. If this had happened to one of mine I would want the rapist to pay for what he did to her. We can't just these rapist run wild and do what ever they want to.

      Hacking is the invasion of privacy to get information... this man did it to uncover criminals and he's going to jail... but what about the suits who listen in on people's phone calls to 'find terrorists' and are hacking into millions of lives... see the hypocrisy there?
