Another commenter already brought up Snowden. Snowden did exactly the same thing wrong: Snowden exposed way too much classified information. In doing so, he compromised national security and turned public opinion against him. Now the message of Snowden is mostly lost to the general public, which is a shame. The general public now thinks to know stricter laws are necessary in order to protect information. Stricter laws are needed to ban encryption. Stricter laws are needed to penalize hackers. Thanks Snowden. Good job.
