Official Statement from the Family and Partner of Aaron Swartz

Excerpt:

Aaron’s death is not simply a personal tragedy. It is the product of a criminal justice system rife with intimidation and prosecutorial overreach. Decisions made by officials in the Massachusetts U.S. Attorney’s office and at MIT contributed to his death. The US Attorney’s office pursued an exceptionally harsh array of charges, carrying potentially over 30 years in prison, to punish an alleged crime that had no victims. Meanwhile, unlike JSTOR, MIT refused to stand up for Aaron and its own community’s most cherished principles.

I haven't been following the story, what crime was he charged with?
 
The justice system is severely broken and I hate hearing stories like this. 
 
The justice system in this country is not that good after all. Chances of getting a fair trial is not very promising. 
 
Not to be a rude or disrespectful but I like how everyone wants to make a news field day out of this one "hacktivists" "suicide" when an untold number of minorities become victims to the broken justice system every year. 
 
+Kwasi Bunsie "Not to be rude or disrespectful", well you failed there.

This is someone I respected, admired, and followed, and that's why I am choosing to post about him.

Have your own news or agenda about minority victims? Post it on your Google+.

Have a problem with that? Take it elsewhere, cause IDGAF.
