"You sure got a purty mouth, boy…"

( h/t Michelle Malkin)

Okay, so he isn't pretty by the standards of those of us who reside on this side of the triple barbed-wire fences, but the slightly-built, pouty-lipped Jeremy Hammond will probably be quite popular inside the cell block after lights-out.

I hope he doesn't bruise easy.

If convicted for his role in masterminding the break-in and theft of 5,000 credit card numbers from the server of, Hammond could potentially face up to 30 years in prison according to the web site.

Interestingly enough, Hammond's supporters seem to wrap their defense around the fact that Hammond was arrested before he was able to commit millions of dollars in credit card fraud. Their claim seems to be that if the cards weren't yet used, then there wasn't a crime. According to their logic, someone could break into their homes and steal their television, but a crime would not actually occur until the thief started actually watching television. I can only hope that Hammond's lawyers are more competent in the basics of criminal law than his supporters. has a petition section where you can contribute your thoughts on the case. Please feel free to express your thoughts on what you feel might be an appropriate punishment for someone who would steal your identity and abuse your credit because he doesn't like your politics or respect your freedom to voice your beliefs.

In addtion, has a support page that I encourage people to visit. It has a Paypal donations button, but considering Jeremy's apparent penchant for personal identity theft, I'd advise skipping it for now.

But I would suggest a donation of either Soap on a Rope or Preparation H to the address listed for their super secret safe house at:

1271 Pleasant Avenue Apt #D
Glendale Heights, IL 60139

I have a feeling he'll be needing copious amounts of both.

Free Jeremy?

Yep, I suspect that's what the other inmates will be getting: some free Jeremy.

Tee hee, Basil...true, so true. The logic of those defending this person is absurd. Better they use any donations to stock up on Astroglide.

HA! Basil's right.

Everyone say it with me...

This dim bulb has been attending the monthly meetings for the Chicago chapter of 2600 group for about 7-8 months now. He has had some extreme problems with the caveat "nothing illegal should go on at the meetings". Thus, the poor guys who arrange the meeting have had to have words with him, and several of his pothead posse about drinking and doing drugs on-site. Even after SPECIFICALLY being told not to.

After he failed to find kindred souls, and other assorted mental defectives to go down with him, he started getting obnoxious and demanding access to projects being worked on by private groups within the mainstream 2600 setting.

When he politely got told to fuck off, he proceeded to hack his way in. Not to demonstrate he could. Not to show people the various insecurities inherent in their system. Simply so that he could circumvent what he perceived as access "restrictions" on himself.

When called to the carpet, he merely responds with "well if I'd been asked to clean it up, I would have". Patent BS from first to last. Every last problem he's ever caused, he's out the door before any chance is made to inspect the systems and ask for them to be cleaned. Causing more work for the people who own them, and now have to take them out of service for reinstallation.

About this time, it was discovered by the group at large that this idiot damn-near got mobbed off a stage at Defcon 2004 for preaching what he called "Hacktivism" or "Civil Disobedience". Nothing civil about it. It amounted to "Fuck their shit up. Hack their websites. Break their property." And he had to be escorted away by security for his own could see the feds popping out the cell phones to make the calls.

In short, this "hacktivist" is nothing more than a petulant, willful child. One for whom NOTHING is a barrier, so long as HE gets what HE wants.

He's not an activist. He's not even really an idealist, though he purports to be. He's just another dumb, selfish ass who will eventually wind up in jail.

I wish him copious butt sex....On the receiving end.

Dear Confederate Yankee,
First off, Yankee or no, the "Confederate" part of your name belies your true nature, namely a red-neck cracker, biggoted, inbred, who probably still uses words like "niggras" and "darkies"... second, anyone who would wish rape upon someone else is a sick f**k who probably deserves it himself. I for one would like to see you fisted good and hard or maybe have your ass widened out with a kickstart dildo. Maybe then you might learn that things like rape aren't funny, even though your type probably don't consider it rape
when it's your sister. Choke on that you Confederate flag waving asshole. The South lost for a reason, but on behalf of the rest of us "Yankees" please do us all a favor and move back there.

Jeremy you're an idiot:

"anyone who would wish rape upon someone else is a sick f**k who probably deserves it himself. I for one would like to see you fisted good and hard or maybe have your ass widened out with a kickstart dildo."

Um, isnt that avocating rape on someone else?


Confederate definitions:
# A member of a confederacy; an ally.
# One who assists in a plot; an accomplice. See synonyms at partner.

Way to fuckup your slander there buddy.
The term Confederate Yankee is a joke in itself. I'm surprised you didnt take offense to the yankee part, considering you're obviously inbred.
