    He SAID that people are treated like that ALL THE TIME and do not top themselves.  White children of privilege being treated like that are the exception, not the rule.  

    Robert Morris is now a professor at MIT, after unleashing holy hell on the nascent internet in the late 80's.  Child of privilege.  BTW they tried to blame ME when the worm first got out, and the FBI came knocking at MY DOOR before HIS.   Computing while female, I guess is the crime.  

    Sorry, I've seen how this works. B^3 is right.  

    If Shwartz had been black and underprivileged, he would have been simply arrested rather than...oh, is this another person that shot themselves in the back of the head with the wrong hand?

    Sorry, I don't even believe it was suicide.  I think they topped him when they realized he had wealthy parents (== legal war chest) and an extensive social network and there was NO WAY they were going to get their half-assed charges to stick.

      because he's Jewish".

      income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%
