He went to Gawker and leaked the information that he gained, victimizing all of those people in the process. Just because someone leaves a door unlocked or open does not give you the right to go in and steal stuff and this is no different.
A door being unlocked doesn't obligate you to inform the owner of the door, nor does is there any reason you can't tell someone else about it.
It is *beyond* stupid to swear at a federal judge and call her a "mean bitch" when she is the one that is sentencing you.
I think that, like with police officers, it is up to a judge to be the "bigger man" and realize that although it is rude, being a dick isn't something someone should get jail time for.
It is *beyond* stupid to go on a public forum and post that you intent to commit the same crimes again once you get out of prison.
It is stupid, but if the "crimes" that landed him in jail should not have lead him to be serving jail time to begin with, I think he has reason to make a big, public hub bub about it. The guy is an asshole, but I don't want any dangerous precedents being set just so he gets punished. Besides, there is nothing to gain from him being in jail.
His entire life has been dedicated to griefing people and generally being an asshole and yeah, the judge is going to look at that.
Maybe we should go ahead and throw Kanye West in jail the next time he getting a moving violation? I mean, the guy is generally an asshole.
