Leftist hacker gets off light at the hands of "Compassionate Judge"
One Angry Christian

You'll never see this on Kos, DU, or any other site that claims to support free speech for all people.

In a victory for free speech and property rights, Jeremy Hammond was sentenced to two years in federal prison to begin in January 2007.

It sounds great till you get to this part.

As reported in the Chicago Tribune, Zagel brushed aside Hammond's plans to rob victims out of millions of dollars as a lapse in judgment rather than willful and malicious credit card fraud, saying, "all 19-year-olds are idiots." He also characterized the theft itself as "countering speech [Hammond] found wrong ." Considering Hammond's history of violence and crime, Zagel's bizarrely euphemistic characterization of Hammond's actions reveals a misplaced compassion.
Can you imagine what would happen to this guy if he were a conservative activist part of a support the troops movement? This would be front page news on CNN. Instead I had to dig it out of the victims site.

Besides public execution by the media you'd likely see them sentenced as a home grown terrorist. How many times have stories like this come up, and the Democrats have flipped out? Where's their out rage now? What about the leftist knee jerk groups that go into convulsions ever time they think that some conservative might be thinking about something that might possibly lead to someone thinking about their perceived rights being infringed upon?

This is yet another example of how the "for justice and peace" movements, the press, and the far left in general are really more for "oppression, silencing, and robbery" of their political opponents considering that they protest "civil rights" violations every time the Administration breaks wind, but they can't seem to muster enough stones to speak up when one of their own violently, verbally, or virtually attacks someone on the opposing side.

Ann Coulter uses the "F word" and the press goes nuts. Some leftist hacks a site, attempts to steal credit card information and in essence the identity of
of a few thousand members of an opposing political movement and they're deafeningly silent. I find the whole thing ironic considering their passionate hatred of the Patriot Act.

The Patriot Act is bad enough to motivate thousands of protesters, but criminals trying to attack free speech by robbing political opponents is ... no big deal.

I'm not surprised, but it's just one more notch in the "the press is biased" coffin of the massive mainstream media.

Where are the out raged free speech proponents? Probably partying in Castro's private bunker.
