Yeah, well then again, neither is the US Administration, Congress, the US Senate, the CIA, the NSA, the US Military, ... Add to that: "nor are they respectful of international law, UN sanctions, ethical considerations, basic human decency..."
But then again: Iraq has 10-12 times the population of Chicago (and is trying to recover from civil war and insurgency), so me, I'm thinking, "Wow! Iraq only has three times the murder rate of Chicago? That's pretty good!"
While we're at it, compare that Chicago murder rate with that of Toronto (roughly the same size) which experienced a 'sharp rise' to 69, for 2016.
For those folk who always make a point a commenting without reading the source material:
"The case – A.T. v. Globe24H.com – involves a Romanian-based website that downloaded thousands of Canadian judicial and tribunal decisions, posted them online and demanded fees for their swift removal."
While there's a substantial difference of degree, the Romanian website's business model is essentially revenge porn blackmail.
From what I can discern, in the 'States, as long as someone is able to make a buck, any activity is considered, uh, legitimate. And anyone who pays you a salary, owns you, like a master owns a slave. This applies also when you're not 'on the clock'.
