The last 2 posts are so typical of how far we have come to seeing a person spend the rest of their life in prison for crimes such as cyber crimes.
The one thing my mother told me about life and that was:No#1.
if you owe any money, the last thing anybody wants to wish on you is:a.
to be sick, in the hospital or suchb.
to be out of work... you can't get your money thenc.
to be in jail. You'll never get your money if you jail me. Jail is my retribution back to society.
My point is, if you're so clever and so smart, you would be wise enough to:d.
keep the person out of jail, and make him pay restitution for the crimee.
make the person work for free to teach all of you wise people how to protect yourselff.
make the person give seminars and lessons to people on how to protect themselves of crimes he committedg.
make him study cyber crime, since he has the knowledge for it, and teach it to law enforcers
Everyone that is sooooo bent of stiff laws like that, I hope that you never see the day when you're sentenced to 30 years for doing a petty crime. Spam, and all of that crap?.... is just a petty crime. It's not is fault that so many people are sooooo stupid to fall into a trick so easily on the Internet. All of those people need training too. And they need to help pay the restitution back,... wasting the governments money like that. People are that dumbed down.... but a person like that has to pay the brunt of it. And alot of you never talk, nor even wink an eye at how you're being cheated everyday, just by the legal system alone.
101 years is waaaayyyyyy too much time for someone to spend in prison for a cyber crime, but yet and still, convicted murderers spend only a few years, at tops,, and back on the streets again, just to kill again.
Do you see something wrong with this picture? I do. I'm smarter than alot of you as to how to win a prize. You'll go for the maximum penalty to jail a person, whereas I would want the person to be able to pay me back. And he's not paying me back by rotting in prison. Alot of you are just as gullable as the victims. You got taken, and now you want the person to spend the rest of his life in prison.
If a person could get 20 years for stealing your trash can from your yard, you'd be glad for that too. Me?... I'd ask to have my trash can returned or replaced. But the 2 last posters above?.... I'd hate to cross paths with you. That's just too harsh to even think that a person deserves that kind of a sentence. Too harsh.On an ending note:
I'd bet you'd be the first person to give someone 50+ years, just for downloading a movie from the internet, instead of just making him pay for it. But attitudes like the posts I've read, those are the real tax payers problems, because the way you think, you do nothing but create more taxes on people. All that money he must have taken, all those emails sent.... guess what?... You're gonna pay for it, and you're gonna pay for him to be housed for the rest of his life.
So,,,.... who really won?
