Prosecutors Intended 6 Month Sentence for Aaron Swartz

There are people who are manipulating the liberal community and many of them are not doing it for actual liberal causes, but to throw the next election to a Republican that has an agenda even worse than George W Bush's invasion of Iraq planned.

And they are doing everything to keep young Americans in the dark.

U.S. prosecutors handling computer- fraud charges against an Internet activist who killed himself last week had intended to recommend a sentence of six months, U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz in Boston said.
The career prosecutors handling the case recognized that Aaron Swartz’s conduct didn’t warrant the severe punishment authorized by law, Ortiz said yesterday in an e-mailed statement.

And once done with the short sentence Swartz had the skill and the brains to go just about as far as he wanted.

It's too bad that many on the left still don't know this.  It appears that some of their supposed friends would like them to never know it, because they think they'll be able to grab more power if the young activists don't know.
