"As a parent and a sister, I can only imagine the pain felt by the family and friends of Aaron Swartz, and I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy to everyone who knew and loved this young man. I know that there is little I can say to abate the anger felt by those who believe that this offices prosecution of Mr. Swartz was unwarranted and somehow led to the tragic result of him taking his own life. I must, however, make clear that this offices conduct was appropriate in bringing and handling this case. The career prosecutors handling this matter took on the difficult task of enforcing a law they had taken an oath to uphold, and did so reasonably." 

Yes, Ms. Ortiz, you obviously can “only imagine the pain.” Because if you truly felt what you said about your being a mother and a sister, it would move you first to listen, and then to think. Death is permanent, his parents have lost their son, his sister lost her brother, you lost nothing but the nano shreds left of a human being that you once were.

In his death, you cannot even be humble enough to keep your mouth shut. Although you are part of crushing this man, you refuse to acknowledge that something terrible was done by you and your staff. You’re still so concerned in covering your own ass, saving your job, rationalizing the inexcusable abuse of your power as a government official, you try to prove that you understand this case better than your press releases about Aaron’s “crime” (those issued when Aaron still drew breath) made it seem (“the prosecutors recognized that there was no evidence against Mr. Swartz indicating that he committed his acts for personal financial gain”). 

But if your prosecutors recognized this, then this is the question to answer:Why was he being charged with 13 felonies?

His motive was political,obviously. His harm was exactly none. But he deserved, your “career prosecutors” believed, to be deprived of his rights as a citizen (aka, a “felon,” no longer entitled to the political rights he fought to perfect) because of what he did. 

Shit always rises to the top. Ortiz' shameless statements is yet another proof of this observation. Her practice of the cruel arrogance of the law in the politically correct words,the phony use of her having any personal feelings about destroying Aaron's life, seemingly erases him as an innocent human being who was in fact harassed, persecuted, and hounded to death by her office, all in the name of "enforcing a law they had taken an oath to uphold, and did so reasonably"

The same government that lies to start illegal wars, decides selectively not to prosecute those in power who commit major acts of fraud, corruption. malfeasance by violating laws, and bails out banks that started a global financial crisis, at the same time wants to censor the Internet and drives to suicide someone who is important enough and rises against it, on made up charges that can essentially be used to charge anyone. 

Once again this is about seeing past the facade that is our America, the "democracy' big lie, hiding behind the asinine mockery of self righteous rhetoric, when the truth is that they are the cancer of corruption, the puppets that enforce punishment against anyone who dares to challenge the injustices of our broken legal system and completely dysfunctional government .

Our government, our "justice" legal system are corrupt to the core. The Internet which allows for true free speech goes directly against every control method the governments of the world and their business partners have.The fight for the Internet is literally the fight for freedom, Aaron Swartz understood this and died for his beliefs.
This is a measure of who we have become. And we don’t even notice it. We can’t even see the extremism, corruption, injustices that we have allowed to creep into our laws. 

A shameless Carmen Ortiz, just another government official who has the nerve to double talk away their accountability for using their power "because they can", invoking her family, while in the same breath defending her irresponsible behavior which in part at least drove this 26 year old young man to his death. Our government killing it's own citizens, never taking responsibility for what has become a way of life in the politics of the cesspool called the United States of America.

We are a Nation that is beyond the point of being repaired. Six year old children are innocently gunned down in cold blood, the response to this seemingly inconceivable tragedy is that we wring our hands, and debate intellectually what should we do. 

We hide anything that shows the weakness, failures, and
sickness of our society by ignoring it in the end, everything is for sale, a human life is disposable, ethics don't exist, and money is the real god in which our country trusts.  

If you think that anyone in government will listen, an online petition that asks the White House to remove the U.S. attorney in charge of the prosecution of Internet activist and hacker Aaron Swartz passed the 25,000 signature threshold Tuesday that should prompt an official response.

Swartz committed suicide in New York City on Friday. At the time of his death, Swartz was accused of computer fraud and awaiting a trial expected to begin in the spring. He faced a maximum of 35 years of prison and up to $1 million in fines.

The petition has now passed 45,000 signatures, which means the White House is supposed to answer it, although it's not legally bound to do so. A recent petition to build a Death Star was addressed, although others take more time and some go unanswered.

Parker Higgins, an activist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital rights advocacy group, lamented Monday that a petition to grant open access to scholarly articles has been unanswered for more than seven months."White House makes jokes about their beer recipe and building a death star, but they don't answer a real petition on open access," Higgins tweeted.

Swartz was accused of sneaking into the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's library, plugging his laptop into a network closet and illegally downloading millions of scholarly articles from the online publisher JSTOR.

Swartz was reportedly depressed, but his family, supporters and legal experts such as Lawrence Lessig, have accused the prosecution led by assistant U.S. Attorney Steve Heymann, working under Ortiz, of overreach that may have played a role in his suicide. Swartz's lawyer had seen his plea agreement rejected as recently as last Wednesday.

According to Swartz's latest lawyer, Marty Weinberg, his last plea deal was accepted by JSTOR, but the deal fell through when the MIT refused to sign the deal. MIT's president already announced that the famed school will conduct an investigation to assess its eventual role in Swartz's death.

The success of the petition will certainly keep stirring the controversy surrounding his death. 

Andrew Good, Swartz's former lawyer, told the San Francisco Gate Monday that last year he told federal prosecutors that his client was a suicide risk.
"Put him in jail, he'll be safe there," they responded, according to Mr. Good. 

The arrogance of the law rearing its ugly head ABOVE by the scumbags who are sworn by oath to protect our rights, provide judicial justice, instead they are robots with egos and evil that knows no bounds, respect of no-one, nothing bothers them, they are our puppet masters, jerking us off, all in the name of "their justice".
