you totally ruin ONE persons life....
is that going to prevent hackers?
it will cost the government >$40,000/year to incarcerate him---seems silly!
GREAT/LOG ICAL idea below---let him pay the fine off :)

Jails are university of crime. I encourage him to teach all the other inmates how to hack, it not only would make his time easier, but to gain friends with all cliches in the "yard".

Now see, this is what I"m talking about! The pentagon should get this KID to help hack China! Let him do his time and pay off his fine, doing GOV. work! I'm sure his time would be better spent helping us then spent rotting in jail! If he's under arrest he's not going anywhere! Give him and ankle bracelet and time to work off his penalties! Like that kid's going to pay $73,000.00 off! It doesn't look like he has two dimes to rub together! Obviously he's good at what he does! Instead of castrating these brilliant kids, Hire them! Don't you watch the movies!

The US war on democracy continues. Controlling the Web is high on the agenda, for surveillance and suppression. And of course, the US's partners, Google, FB, etc. are banking on big revenues from collecting and providing user data.

Commit a crime that harms no one= 10 years in prison. Rape a passed out girl= less than 5 years


Your math is way off.
