Journal symbolset's Journal: Her name is Carmen Ortiz 1

The prosecutor who hounded Aaron Swartz to death, impoverishing his family and guaranteeing he would spend the rest of his natural days in federal prison because they had not enough to defend him properly: her name is Carmen Ortiz. She is the one who would do this to him - not for killing somebody, or stealing something, but for accessing information he was entitled to access manually in an automated way. Building scripts was his crime. Carmen Ortiz was his prosecutor. She killed him.

  • Symbolset, yeah, in a world where people are responsible for their actions, you'd be right. Unfortunately, we live in a world where as long as your job gives you an excuse, you're apparently free to do what the heck ever. It's sad.
