The only problem I have with this is the fact that they brought his family into this publicly. He wasn't the one to mention that they used his family as leverage. They didn't have to mention that he had two kids; forcing them into the public sphere isn't necessary. As I said, I don't give a damn about the dude, he deserves what he got. But if someone is willing to be an informant for you, as a legal measure of penance, you could at least spare their families from public humiliation. It's not about fairness or justice; I just don't think that's tasteful.Lono Shrugged said:Because we don't use stockades any more. ANY person who commits a crime is on public record committing that crime. They sometimes list minor crimes in the newspaper.
I'm not saying I totally agree but this is no surprise, especially if you are any way familiar with the F.B.I and how they operate. It's not about fair it's about nailing criminals and I can respect that. Especially if your hands are not clean anyway.
To me the whole kids thing is him just justifying burning his buddies to himself. It rings a little more noble than "I don't want to be shanked in the showers" I have no sympathy for this guy. I feel sorry for his kids but mostly because their Dad is a fucking asshole
I'm pretty sure it may have had something to do with the constant ass raping too, but Fox News left that bit out.Silvianoshei said:This is the only thing I don't like. Threatening to leave his children without a father or as orphans is a pretty terrible thing to do.Andy Chalk said:Monsegur, described by FoxNews.com [http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2012/03/06/hacking-group-lulzsec-swept-up-by-law-enforcement/#ixzz1oLiLkGhI] as an "unemployed, 28-year-old father of two," apparently flipped on the group in order to avoid being separated from his children. "It was because of his kids. He didn't want to go away to prison and leave them," a law enforcement official said. "That's how we got him."
Also want to point out that his name is freaking awesome.
Oh that made me lol XDMicalas said:I always found this picture rather curious. I don't know how it's possible to so horribly screw up the spelling of the word "Nothing."The_root_of_all_evil said:
The only reason we demand transparency from our governments is because their actions affect our lives. Anonymous? Not so much. Anon aren't the only ones demanding transparency from our governments, pretty much everyone wants it. Total transparency in Anonymous would be absolutely stupid. The organization wouldn't function at all, so why even bring that up? And yes, what they are doing is Illegal, but as many people have said before.Pluvia said:No, I changed the subject to Anon, I know who Lulzsec are.
It's not transparent otherwise we would know who they are. If you demand transparency you must also be transparent yourself. I want to see the faces of the people who demand this, yet they hide behind a mask so they can hide from the consequences of their illegal actions.
Remaining anonymous is fine. Remaining anonymous whilst demanding others don't is retarded.
I understand this motivation, however i can't comprehend why "father of two" participated in illegal activities in the first place."It was because of his kids. He didn't want to go away to prison and leave them,"
That's terrible... I don't like Lulzsec, they're assholes, but exploiting a father's relationship with his children to make him betray his own organization... only a truly moraly bankrupt person unable to feel empathy can do that...<.<"It was because of his kids. He didn't want to go away to prison and leave them," a law enforcement official said. "That's how we got him."
