wow, he’s got that sinister look to him.
Were the passwords password?
He really does!
Someone’s looking tough for his mugshot but will soon be finding out that he’s in A LOT of trouble.
The cons in the federal pen will be loving him.
Is he wearing a community service pick up trash along the road vest in this photo?
I dont care what he looks like in that picture - kudos to this kid!
Any kid thats a computer whiz or a hacker is OK in my book !!!
and that goes way way way back. Over eons
Security in the modern era of electron and light wave communications is quite an amazing thing now
Mostly you can just secure yourself by not communicating on any social media
Be only an observer. No one will know who you are to call you a troll
Its kind of like the other day I was going down one of my favorite bike trails that of course is illegal
and a couple was walking I was very polite got off my bike
and theyre filming me and threatening me
and I said are you gonna walk past or not because I want to continue o
and theyre still trying to threaten me and fill me and I said OK well Im just gonna continue on
So its like that- just because other people they do the same thing you do are bad does it mean that everybodys bad. IEEE rude
30 felony charges?
If only he had just looted, burned and toppled statues...charges dismissed!
I don't think he will be able to hack it in the joint.
If they give him a slap on the wrist, itll embolden more hackers.
Some democrat judge might just do that.
Little ass hole
How long before Dems call him a Russian?
Ooohhh... That is not a good look. He probably strangles kittens, too.
Is that picture from his Costco employee ID?
He may be a genius. The FBI could hire him for security. It happens.
He should have smashed his computer with a hammer and tell the police he doesn’t remember anything.
Kids gotta be kids.
Hire him to breach our enemies systems, like the DNC and That Society Something Soros funds. Turn him loose on finding Hillary's 33,000 emails.
He can be very useful.
Yep. I thought of that right after I posted.
