    Anonymous launches OpAngel in memory of Aaron Swartz

    Anonymous is uniting to stop the Westboro Baptist Church from demonstrating at Aaron's memorial service in

    Internet and Open Access pioneer Aaron Swartz's suicide last week has drawn attention to the government's aggressive prosecution of pro-piracy Web activists. In support of Swartz's legacy and his family, Anonymous has launched #OpAngel, carrying on his crusade of Open Access and Internet freedom, and specifically warning the Westboro Baptist Church against their alleged plan to picket his funeral and memorial service.

    Now US Attorney Ortiz has obtained her "pound of flesh" for the government, the charges against Aaron were dropped, as if that will exonerate her for her role in Aaron's death.
