Comment Re:BeauHD, please don't use slashdot as your blog (Score 1) 95

Please tell me if you know a way to ignore all stories sent by specific person? I would use it immediately.

Judging by the front page of late, you would have dry spells where there were no stories all day (or for a couple days) because the only person even posting them is BeauHD or msmash. Pardon the buzzword, but you fuckers need to bring back the old ecosystem. /. has become homogenized.

Bro, do yu even read? The law is clear.

(a) Whoever, being an officer, employee, contractor, or consultant of the United States, and, by virtue of his office, employment, position, or contract, becomes possessed of documents or materials containing classified information of the United States, knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both.

The relevant law is: 18 U.S. Code 1924

Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material (18 USC 1924) is something that Hillary would likely have been charged with if she had not been protected by her cronies. The fact is, they allowed her claim that she didn't know what she was doing was illegal to stand in as absence of a clear motive. I find it really hard to believe that someone who has spent 30 years in the Federal Government has no knowledge of Section 18 of the criminal code! David Petraeus plead guilty to that charge and got a little probation and a $100,000 fine. For one count. However, Hillary (and others on her staff) might be guilty lots and lots of instances.

She and some staffers may also be guilty of 18 USC 1623, False Declarations Before a grand jury or court--which carries up to 5 years--for lying under oath about said intent to commit the crime of removing classified documents and storing them. There is also 18 USC 1001, Fraud and False Statements which might come into play if she lied. Really, I think it's quite embarrassing as a citizen to live in a country that claims to practice justice in the court, but clearly does not. When you get passed all the political spin and commentary and drill down to the actual criminal code, it is hard to imagine a reality in which Hillary and her staff did not get convicted of SOMETHING. Let alone not even indicted! It just goes to show how deep the corruption goes.

Here's TFL (the fucking law)

18 USC 1924
18 USC 1623
18 USC 1001

True, *you* probably don't need a professional grade laptop.. But photographers use the SD card every day. IT professionals use the escape key and ethernet jack every day. If you don't use either of them, you're probably not using your MacBook in a professional capacity. Writing emails and surfing Facespace doesn't count.. Apple really should be calling these "MacBook Air" or "MacBook Lite" because they are missing all the things that made them "Pro".
