Trouble is, the US govt has not yet learned that especially after the Snowden leaks, they can not get away with hypocrisy as a foreign policy any more. Their credibility is completely shot at this point.
Every day on the way to drop my kids off at school there's 2 police cars parked on the main road running radar. In the same spot. Why aren't you assclowns out doing real police work instead of revenue enhancement for the banana republic you work for? Aren't there any unsolved crimes you could be working on? Ones with victims, mind you?
But NO. Better to get your rocks off on your little barney fife power trip.
These assclowns didn't seem to give a shit about "manifest injustice" while they were extorting thousands of $$$ from hundreds of people for downloading from their honeypot they set up to entrap people. With settlement figures that, as John Steele himself said, were just less than the cost of a basic legal defense.
If they "can't pay", then it's time for asset forfeiture. Seize their cars, houses, bank accounts, whatever. But ESPECIALLY their passports.
Welcome to the big leagues, guys. Payback's a bitch, ain't it?
Punk bitches. I hope they rot, first in jail, then in hell.
