Although generally I oppose the death penalty, when I read about the very light sentence given to the German teenager who last year released the Sasser virus I had thoughts that are very similar to those of John Tierney in his IHT/NYT opinion article last week.
Some quotes:
"Hackers are the Internet equivalent of Richard Reid, the shoe-bomber who didn't manage to hurt anyone on his airplane but has been annoying travelers ever since. "
" Most painful of all for any geek, make him use Windows 95 for the rest of his life."
