Carmen Ortiz, Stephen Heymann: Resign Your Posts as US Attorney for causing deaths of Aaron Swartz and Jonathan James

Signing this petition sends an email directly to:

Carmen Ortiz and Stephen Heymann

You used the Internet as a weapon.  You posted Charges against Aaron Swartz in a Press Release on the Internet years prior to his planned adjudication:
http://www.justice.gov/usao/ma/news/2011/July/SwartzAaronPR.html
Because the Internet cannot be erased, your public announcement is tantamount to condemnation and prejudice sufficient to ruin Aaron's life regardless of judicial outcome.  Because the Press Release constitutes no judicial process, it can be interpreted as a punitive and vindictive act by the US Attorney's office whose job cannot be to exact punishment nor deal a death blow.

Searching and seizing Aaron's property without warrant

was retribution enough.  

Now you have two similarly induced suicides in your portfolio:

Your actions were immoral and reprehensible.
Resign your posts.

Letter to
US Attorney Carmen Ortiz
US Attorney Stephen Heymann
You used the Internet as a weapon. The charges you posted publicly against Aaron Swartz were enough to ruin his life forever.

Searching and seizing his property without warrant was retribution enough. (Your own property should be seized, so that you know what it feels like, before you go seizing others'.)

Now you have two similarly induced suicides in your portfolio.

These acts were immoral and reprehensible on your part.
You have too much red in your ledger.
Resign your posts.
