Swartz would be alive but for Ortiz

State prosecutors would have let him off


It is starting to look more like hacker Aaron Swartz would be alive if it had not been for the actions of Federal prosecutor Carmen Ortiz. Swartz killed himself after the DoJ attempted to get him locked up for years for a trivial case of hacking in which he took papers he was entitled to download.

According to the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly State prosecutors who investigated Swartz for hacking had planned to let him off with a stern warning. However federal prosecutor Carmen Ortiz took the case over because she wanted to make an example of the Internet activist. According to paperwork seen by Lawyers Weekly, Middlesex County’s district attorney had planned no jail time, “with Swartz duly admonished and then returned to civil society to continue his pioneering electronic work in a less legally questionable manner.”

But Ortiz’s office took over the case with the aim of sending ‘a message’ to the online community that even trivial hacking would be dealt with harshly.  The idea that she might do this to further her political career has been implied. Ortiz has been criticised for threatening the 26-year-old with decades in prison for allegedly downloading a large quantity of academic papers.  Already there is an online petition asking President Obama to remove from her from office. Ortiz is a politically ambitious prosecutor who was talked about as Massachusetts’ next governor as recently as last month.  She has been getting into more hotwater over her desperate attempts to get good publicity.  

This week she attempting to seize a family-owned for allegedly facilitating drug crimes, despite ample evidence that the owners worked closely with local police. US Magistrate Judge Judith Dein tossed out the case yesterday, siding with the motel owners. The owner of the motel commented that Ortiz should not have the power to pull this stuff on people.

  1. Salve, sto cercando il titolo di un film horror che tratta di un ragazzo che trova un videogioco molto violento col quale uccide le persone. In seguito ad alcune partite si accorge con orrore che le persone uccise muoiono anche nella realtà dunque cercherà di sottrarsi al volere del protagonista del gioco, un uomo dall’aspetto bizzarro, il quale sino a quel momento l’ha costretto ad uccidere in prima persona.

    Ho già svolto alcune ricerche su internet ed il solo film che ho trovato è stato Stay Alive di William Brent Bell; purtroppo non si tratta di quello poiché la prima ed unica volta che ho visto il film di cui ho appena parlato è stato da bambino e ricordo distintamente che il periodo in cui è stato girato fosse attorno agli anni ’80 o ’90.

    Vi ringrazio già da ora per l’aiuto nella mia ricerca.

  4. Feel the city breakin’
    And ev’rybody shakin’
    And we’re stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.
    Ah, ha, ha, ha,
    Stayin’ alive.
    Stayin’ alive.
    Ah, ha, ha, ha,
    Stayin’ alive

  5. The ponies run, the girls are young,
    The odds are there to beat.
    You win a while, and then its done
    Your little winning streak.
    And summoned now to deal
    With your invincible defeat,
    You live your life as if its real,
    A Thousand Kisses Deep.

    Im turning tricks, Im getting fixed,
    Im back on Boogie Street.
    You lose your grip, and then you slip
    Into the Masterpiece.
    And maybe I had miles to drive,
    And promises to keep:
    You ditch it all to stay alive,
    A Thousand Kisses Deep.

    And sometimes when the night is slow,
    The wretched and the meek,
    We gather up our hearts and go,
    A Thousand Kisses Deep.

    Confined to sex, we pressed against
    The limits of the sea:
    I saw there were no oceans left
    For scavengers like me.
    I made it to the forward deck.
    I blessed our remnant fleet
    And then consented to be wrecked,
    A Thousand Kisses Deep.

    Im turning tricks, Im getting fixed,
    Im back on Boogie Street.
    I guess they wont exchange the gifts
    That you were meant to keep.
    And quiet is the thought of you,
    The file on you complete,
    Except what we forgot to do,
    A Thousand Kisses Deep.

    And sometimes when the night is slow,
    The wretched and the meek,
    We gather up our hearts and go,
    A Thousand Kisses Deep.

    The ponies run, the girls are young,
    The odds are there to beat . . .

  7. If life is a Game,
    They say I can’t win,
    I’ll never amount to nothing.
    Tear me down before my life begins.

    I won’t be afraid,
    To challenge myself,
    They won’t ever break my fire.
    My dreams won’t die,
    If I high-five the sky,
    Spread my wings,
    Take off, it’s time to fly!

    Take a chance to make it all the way,
    Take a chance forgetting yesterday,
    Take a chance, believe.

    Nothing will bring me down,
    No retreat when I leave all my fears behind,
    My future’s still alive inside,

    Take a chance and chase my doubts away,
    Believing gets me through my darkest days.

    Take a chance to make it all the way,
    Take a chance forgetting yesterday,
    Take a breath, my heart will lead the way,
    Take a chance, I’ll take a chance today.
