Young bright computer geeks and social activists, at war with the establishment of governmental control and corporate greed.
Hacktivists against Government’s hackers-snitch-ex-anons or simply Fedhackers
What it is the maximum penalty for internet hacking? 1,5,10,35, or life in prison? All depend actually. If you are individual of interest for the district attorney’s office, you can be offer a deal, a deal you can not refuse.
If Aaron Swartz, our young privacy advocate, political and social activist was alive today, he probably can tell you about his 6 months in jail deal. Well, not that he accepted, so he was facing 35 years in jail, all because he did not want to play the district attorney’s sinister deal. This cost him his life.
What about the other “cyber breakers”? They all being offered a deal. One by one saw its day at the district attorney’s office. What do they do? All acted according to their conscience and sense of justice.
The district attorney’s office managed to brake few of them. Some of them “went to work” for the DA, some refused, but the simple truth is that now they are divided, scared and scattered.
Simple as this. The divide and conquer start showing inside the anon community. The paranoia is running wild. By now the Anons do not know who is snitch, who is being followed, and who is real anonymous. Once you see an anon’s name in the news, you are considered to be exposed.
The anons are doxing each other, they are snitching. And more scary for the anons, is that the Feds are hiring some of them and using them to infiltrate the ranks of the hackivist community. Who is wining this cyber war? Just in Indonesia, there is an estimate that
In some other instances the feds are blackmailing the anons already detained,they are being forced to work as snitches, in exchange to drop some of the charges.
By now, you should know how the district attorney’s office of crooks and escalators works. Once they arrest one anon, they will be offered two deals; One, to be an informant, a snitch in other words, if that is not accepted, they will probably be offer a deal, if that is refused also, the DA will play with the life of the defendants, using the unconstitutional trick called, plea bargain or blackmail. The DA assure with deals an 80 % of the cases a wining verdict. For them plea bargain or cases won sqare and fair in the court room is the same. They use this convictions to move up in the ladder of the office of the district attorney.
The less they care is justice being served. We can not help, but to remember Aaron Shwartz, the latest of its victims. Using the scare tactic, bringing outrageous charges, unheard charges on the book. Its call plea bargain. Aaron was offer 6 months in jail to plea guilty, off course innocent as he was he refused the Plea, Ortiz got mad and charged him with 9 counts of bogus charges that carried all together 35 years in jail.
Pleas Bargaining has come to dominate the administration of justice in America.
According to one legal scholar, “Every two seconds during a typical workday, a criminal case is disposed of in an American courtroom by way of a guilty plea or nolo contender plea. Even though plea bargaining pervade the justice system. He argue that the practice should be abolished because it is unconstitutional.
Government should not retaliate against individuals who exercise their right to trial by jury.
Plea Bargain it is one of the dirtiest tactics used by the government to coerce individuals into agreeing to plea guilty charges that they did not commit in exchange for waving their constitutional rights of a court trial.
Paul Lewis Hayes, serving life sentencing for writing a check of $ 88.30 and declining to accept a plea bargain of 5 years. The district attorney retaliated and charge him with another crime “Habitual Criminal Act”, which carries a mandatory life imprisonment. Hayes lost and appealed his conviction, took his case to the Supreme Court and 5 to 4 the supreme court upheld the conviction. The Case Against Plea Bargaining
The government has already understood that they lose the cyberwar, the youth in the planet outnumber the old. We seen the youth rebelling against the old in the
Please stop by and read International Strategy for Cyberspace, US government had said that will respond hackers attack military if necessary.
As a cyber space race looms, the military is looking for a few good geeks.
High school hackers, crackers and digital deviants: Uncle Sam wants you. Again the government blackmailing the youth of America. They want to use our youth to snitch each other in exchange for a pay check.
Anons hackers doxing each other. Who they working for? Feds? private firms, ego? Next Generation Fuckery

Anonymous hacker, commentator, journalist, and fameball Barrett Brown was arrested in a dramatic takedown last night live and on-camera, in the middle of a TinyChat with a dozen others.
Some weren’t worried. “Cool how the FBI staged @BarrettBrownLOL‘s arrest live on cam to bolster the idea he hasn’t been working for them for some time already,” said Methadonna on Twitter, voicing the suspicions of many. Daily Dot
The hacker group Anonymous is dealing with the arrest and betrayal of one of its most vocal members the only way it knows how: By hacking a security firm and covering its website with a rant against feds and snitches. To Snitch Sabu
Read the following story of Sabu, the mention of the victim SONY, makes the crimes more expensive and the years of jail multiply by the dollar $ Sign!!!!!
Hector Xavier Monsegur, a.k.a. Sabu, was outed Tuesday as a Puerto-Rican American resident of New York who pleaded guilty in August to an indictment on charges of computer crimes against targets ranging from Visa and Mastercard to the security firm HBGary and Sony that carried a maximum sentence of up to 124 years and six months in prison.
Six top computer hackers associated with groups such as Anonymous, LulzSec and AntiSec have been arrested and charged in New York in connection with a series of attacks on computers used by the entertainment industry, credit card companies, intelligence firms and even an Irish political party, U.S. officials announced Tuesday. Los Angeles Times
The FBI and Secret Service have successfully infiltrated the underground world of computer hackers in the US: 25 percent are secretly informing the government about their peers for fear of a long prison sentence. In fact, the community is riddled with paranoia and mistrust as it is not clear who is part of this “army of informants.” Tech Spot on hackers
One of the six, Hector Xavier Monsegur – also known by his computer name of “Sabu” – pleaded guilty and was said by officials to be working with the government against his former colleagues.
Brian Salcedo, now 23, has been in custody since 2003, when an FBI stakeout caught him and a partner breaking into several Lowe’s networks over an unsecured Wi-Fi connection at a suburban Detroit store. 8 years for Crazy Long Hacker
A skilled San Francisco computer intruder was sentenced here Friday to 13 years in federal prison for stealing nearly two million credit card numbers from banks, businesses and other hackers — in what is the longest hacking sentence in U.S. history. Record Sentence for hacker Max Vision
We see these hackers thieves that stole millions of dollars in wire fraud, their sentences are very small compared to Aaron Swartz 35 years sentence.
Hackers and thieves are notorious nowadays. In fact it’s all anyone tends to hear in the news, and they get long sentences. A con artist/thief stole millions of dollars and got sentenced to 150 years in Jail. Which obviously he won’t ever survive. A man who murdered two children, aged 10, and 12 respectively, got 14 years combined.
Who decide when a crime deserve more years in jail? Justice, Judge, Governor, District Attorney? Make your opinion count, demand accountability for harsh punishment and outrageous district attorney charges for social activist and dissidents.
“Being a federal prosecutor isn’t just a job, it’s a privileged position of power… And one of the things that goes with the unbridled power to decide who to indict and what charges will be brought; is the responsibility to use that power appropriately. Anyone who does not understand that responsibility should not be allowed to pass the bar, much less be handed the power to ruin lives with relative impunity.” Kurt Hopking
On January 14, 2013, Yesterday, it became public that Stephen Heyman oversaw TWO excessive prosecutions of hacker-defendants who committed suicide, Aaron Swartz and Jonathan James.

Ilya Zhitomirskiy (12 October 1989 – 12 November 2011) was a Russian-American software developer and entrepreneur. Zhitomirskiy was a co-founder and developer of the Diaspora social network and the Diaspora free software that powers it. Diaspora could have destroyed facebook platform if being developed as Zhitomirskiy had planned.
On the evening of 12 November 2011, Zhitomirskiy was found dead in his San Francisco home by police responding to calls about a suspected suicide. An autopsy report from the Medical Examiner’s office formally ruled the death a suicide in April 2012. While press reports questioned whether the pressure of working on Diaspora had led to his suicide, Diaspora co-founder Maxwell Salzberg disagreed. Salzberg stated, “Yes, I agree that being a startup founder is stressful. But it wasn’t the stress of work that killed Ilya. He had his own issues. He was sick.” Zhitomirskiy’s mother, Inna Zhitomirskiy, did not comment on reports of his history of mental illness, but she did say on his participation in Diaspora, “I strongly believe that if Ilya did not start this project and stayed in school, he would be well and alive today.”
Diaspora is the Privacy Aware Open Source Social Network that puts you in control of your information.
With Diaspora you decide what you’d like to share, and with whom. RIP Ilya Co-founder of Diaspora
