UK: McKinnon's Extradition Condemned
Via The BBC.
Supporters of Gary McKinnon have condemned the decision to let the former hacker be extradited to the US.
On 4 July Home Secretary John Reid granted the US request to extradite Mr McKinnon for trial.
One friend of the hacker said he was being made a "scapegoat" for the shortcomings of security policies on US military networks.
Others said the potential sentence he could serve if found guilty was out of proportion to the crimes he committed.
