Please sign the petition to help Jeremy Hammond; a computer activist who has harmed no one, but been locked up since March 2012 “awaiting trial”. Please tell the American government pedophiles and rapists (ETC) should be in prison; not a young man whom is intelligent and wants to better society, again, harming not one soul! It only takes a second. Please click the link below to read his twin brother’s plea for Jeremy. Here you can also add your name to the petition, and your reason for signing (the latter is optional for those who don’t desire to do it). Stand up for something REAL. Jeremy is being prosecuted under the same “law” they tried to get Aaron Swartz with. Sadly, we lost Aaron due to this. Like Jeremy, he had hurt not one soul and simply was a young, intelligent man that cared about society and where it is going. He tragically took his own life instead of being the victim of this unjust system. For his beautiful memory, for those taken from the struggle, please stand with us, and for us; for the life Jeremy has left to live; hell, the life all of us who care about the world have left to live! Are you telling us this is our destiny if we stand up for what is right?
This is a short post but it is regarding something I feel very strongly about… Aaron Swartz was only 26 years old; a coder and activist, facing more prison time than most murderers or rapists face, due to the moronic, misled and abusive computer “crime” law in America. Please read the below and then follow the link, where you can sign your name and let the government know that we the people are not okay with these asinine laws. To learn more about the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) simply click here and it will open a helpful website in a new tab. It is worth a read, as the text is so broad it basically makes most of us liable for prosecution.
The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act is broken. Tell Congress to fix it.
No more criminal penalties for violating a website’s fine print
No criminal penalties for circumvention techniques that protect privacy and promote security
Make penalties proportionate to offenses
The tragic death of Aaron Swartz, a 26-year-old coder and social activist, has shone a light on the sad truth about America’s misguided computer crime law. The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) has vague language that broadly criminalizes accessing a computer without “authorization,” but doesn’t explain what that actually means. It also contains heavy-handed penalties and shows no regard for whether an act was done to further the public good.
Take action by simply clicking here and entering your name. We must stand up against laws which punish those who work and fight for justice and good, and let pedophiles and true criminals out of prison. The system is broken, badly. Let them know that you know.
Please. Again, the link is HERE and it also will open in a new tab.
