engaging early response yes it did and you know that though you know there’s only eight is a
real tragedies is a brilliant kitten very committed and you know that the
story i have said feel bad i i did know almanac communique with and i are you of
his arrest of course i had no idea of the charges he was
facing your listeners don’t know he was he he he did downloading um… la
academic articles intention was to to make them available to the public sadar
motive at believers in the hundreds of thousands if not millions of academic
our government is going to make them freely available to people that anyone
could uh… uh… click onto them without
paying and it’s a violation of the of copyright law no doubt about it he got
caught and my assumption was you know he’s facing p_l_o_ suspended sentence
something but the the prosecutors federal prosecutors under the obama
administration world were charging a pressing charges that could have put ’em
in jail for for decades i thirty near scientist and uh… and if you know
in what they’re saying over his head he he ended up committing suicide no
obviously other issues that are on the pacific your portion to this suicide but that sages striking you know i look at this i got here yet
but that this young man that was trying to make information academic work available to
the public and they could take the resources to
press these treasures and then you look at the wall street banks who passed on tens of billions of dollars in
fraudulent mortgages to enrich themselves and not one of them has been charged
with reminds me anymore and they seem to be going after the little guy in the
morning the mortgage brokers who were doing and saying that seems like they’re
willing to press charges against them and not the players who were actually

a stable system before things blew up in two thousand eight it’s not stable system today and thing
is these people do not want think about that all they’re doing is going to take
profits are back to the pre recession leveled stock market is that where was
