Save Gary McKinnon the NASA Ufo Hacker - new protest dates

Hey guys
As you may know Gary McKinnon the famous NASA ufo hacker has suffered another legal setback in his fight against extradition to the US on hacking charges:

The accused hacker has been refused a written judicial review of the Home Secretary's decision not to suspend  extradition proceedings in light of his recent diagnosis with Asperger's Syndrome. McKinnon's lawyer, Karen Todner,  has been given until 5 December to apply for an oral judicial review (ie a hearing in chambers). The legal setback follows decisions by the House of Lords to deny his appeal against extradition and the European  Court of Justice washing its hands of the case.

So whats being done , although not officially confirmed on his site Another Protest for gary has been apparently been arranged for Thursday 27 November from 4pm - 6pm outside the American Embassy,  Grosvenor Square, London. Check back to Gary's site to confirm the dates

Also apparently also a concert called ROCK AGAINST INJUSTICE is being organised and will be highlighting the plight of people like Gary McKinnon and Brian Howes both of whom are being extradited by the Uk government to the USA ..read more

This fellow broke into a government computer systems. Just because he claims to have found UFO information does not make the crime any less serious. He is a thief.
Let him face the music.

The guy committed this "alleged crime" in the UK and therefore should be tried here in the UK. As for the quote above from anonymous - bet you wouldn't be saying that if it was one of your family!

Ross,

Is he one of your family?
If not then why do you care so much that you oppose the justice due to him.
And does being family to him excuse his actions?

Yes, it's true, he is not one of my family, so I would expect the same treatment for him as I would for any other thief.
He is a common hacker and crook; the bane of every person on the web.

Bleed for him mate. I won't.

I come to this site every day, but I have to admit I'm sick of hearing about this guy. He hacked into a Defense department computer! In this age of terrorism, that can not be excused, no matter what he was looking for! I feel for him, but if he is allowed to escape punishment what's to stop every geek in the world from compromising the computer systems of every major government? Let him take his punishment and if he's cooperative and behaves himself, he'll probably only have to do a portion of the time dealt out to him.
