Reddit co-founder Aaron Swartz commits suicide in midst of controversial trial

Published on Jan 13, 2013

The family of internet freedom activist Aaron Swartz has blamed the U.S. criminal justice system for his death – READ MORE

The 26-year-old co-founder of social news website Reddit hanged himself in his New York apartment on Friday. Swartz faced 13 felony charges connected with hacking the network of MIT University and downloading academic papers online. He could have spent decades in prison for charges he pleaded not guilty to. And a representative of the Pirate group from the Berlin parliament, Fabio Reinhardt, says that just isn’t fair.

    Can the ‘thank you for following’ pop up stop popping up?

    I caught the original newscast on CBS on the google news page an hour after the event. The headline at that time merely said he had been “found dead” with no further specifics. It did mention the criminal charges and said the penalty could be “50 years”. There were about 16 to 17 letters, Now what is really telling is these were people’s initial responses & no cause of death had had been released yet. About half of the letters said he was “suicided” and virtually all were suspicious.

    Keep in mind this was CBS, not a “conspiracy site” ore even someone’s blog.

    My gut sense is this event, Sandy Hook, & the 2nd Amendment debate are somehow all related.

    You’re absolutely right. He was fighting the noble fight and knew it was bigger than himself. He was in it for the cause. People like this don’t commit suicide.

    I don’t buy this ‘suicide’ for even a nanosecond. II think we can all figure out what went on here, on one level or another. May this kind of intimidation and abuse of power come soon at an end.
