Comment Re:Cybercrime != Cyberterrorism (Score 1) 73

They need to relate cybercrime to terrorism so they can throw out the constitution and go after petty cybercriminals with the full power and authority granted by the PATRIOT act.. In other words, declare them a terrorist because some member of a bureaucracy determines it to be so.. No trial, judge, jury or any other petty rights a human deserves..


Anti-Speed Camera Activist Buys Police Department's Web Domain 680

Brian McCrary just bought a website to complain about a $90 speeding ticket he received from the Bluff City PD — the Bluff City Police Department site. The department let its domain expire and McCrary was quick to pick it up. From the article: "Brian McCrary found the perfect venue to gripe about a $90 speeding ticket when he went to the Bluff City Police Department's website, saw that its domain name was about to expire, and bought it right out from under the city's nose. Now that McCrary is the proud owner of the site,, the Gray, Tenn., computer network designer has been using it to post links about speed cameras — like the one on US Highway 11E that caught him — and how people don't like them."
