"Hackers are not dangerous, they are misunderstood, and while disciplinary action is of course necessary, there is nothing disciplined about locking the door on a young man's life for 10 years."
FTFY: disciplinary, disciplinary. disciplined is the wrong word for this. It's like Jake Davis is saying that locking the door is a disciplined act. He means disciplinary act.
It's not like "not buying a vacuum cleaner because the electricity sometimes goes out."
It's like not buying a vacuum because you have to phone the manufacturer every time you want to use it... and getting busy signals when you do phone in because the phone bank is overloaded.
I recently read This (https://www.nsfwcorp.com/dispatch/chris-dorner-wrongful-termination) article. It leans towards social issues spurring violence, not desensitization. It's probably as biased as any other source of news, but I think it puts forward an interesting point of view that doesn't see much serious consideration.
This is a great point, and of course, I missed it completely.
Thanks for the insight.
