This is what I like to see (TJX Maxx Hacker sentenced to 30 years in a Turkish prison)

There is very little that I like more than to see scum like this get a heavy-handed sentence.

One of the people (a Ukrainian named Maksym Yastremskiy) of the 11 arrested for the TJX Maxx hacking incident has been sentenced to 30 years for his part in the crime. He was the buyer of the 45 million stolen credit card numbers and, he bankrolled the criminal group who prerpatrated the attack.

I really hope a sentence like this will help reduce some of the many computer crimes that result in so much loss through identity theft.

Kevin Mitnik's Gravatar Yeah lock up the Hacker for 30 years but let the Child molesters, Rapists, Murders and Drug dealers roam the streets.

Jason Dean's Gravatar Yeah, cause that's exactly what I said. Well-formed argument. If I thought you were the real Kevin Mitnik, I might give your comment more of my time. But your argument is fallacious and silly.

Jason Dean's Gravatar @ike, that or an "unstated major premise", being that the only way to lock up evil hackers is to let other evil people go free. Just plain silly.
