More “Asperger’s Syndrome” Sufferers Arrested

Nice to hear that more than twenty hackers have been caught. The arrests took place in the USA, Great Britain and the Netherlands in a joint operation by police.

All are said to be members of two troublesome hacking groups, Lulzsec and Anonymous, who have been terrorizing the internet for some time.  

Of the sixteen arrested across America, fourteen are said to be from the group Anonymous that tried to shutdown PayPal after it closed down all links with Wikileaks.

The group has of course been guilty of intrusions into other computer networks like the Church of Scientology. They also created havoc with MasterCard and Visa, which let’s face it, impacted millions of people across the globe.

Cleary - Ducking Justice

One arrest was made in the UK, but to be honest, I can never see him facing trial, for he is sure to be diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome like the other two hackers awaiting justice, Gary McKinnon and Ryan Cleary.

McKinnon - May Never Come To Trial?

McKinnon has managed to evade extradition to the USA for nine years because of his ‘sickness’, while Cleary, arrested last week, claims the same defence.

Dutch police have arrested a further four who have been linked to either Anonymous or Lulzsec. There can be little doubt that the suspects arrested in America and the Netherlands will have little opportunity to use Asperger’s Syndrome as a defence – Thank Goodness.

Their justice systems are not as lame as ours! So go ahead boys, lock ’em up and throw away the key!!!

Roy.
