Did Gizmodo post his bond?

So not only are we a police state, we're a corporate owned police state.

Happens every day. Guy gets pulled over for no front license plate and gets busted for DUI. Just read about it in the paper this morning happening to some star. Just his bad luck, and my good luck for getting him off the road. If that's a police state, fine with me. You have read this guy's antisemitic and racist rants by now haven't you? A real victim, he is.

Why wasn't he being arrested for hacking?

I'm just guessing, but it probably takes a little longer to develop a case for hacking than for drug possession.

You find illegal drugs in possession of the guy, you test them with a field kit, if positive you make the arrest. Pretty standard procedure--happens every day hundreds of times.

They are probably still investigating the hacking charge, making sure they can make everything stick before screwing it up with a premature arrest. Getting all their ducks in a row. If they have a good case, he will be charged.

There was a pretty potent film about just that:

The film was decent, although not entirely believable (inasmuch as it was a fictional interpretation inspired by a different real-world person), but I though the acting by Ryan Gosling as the main character was outstanding.

Think of it like this: Cops know this dude likes to get high, but why go after the little fish? Better to focus on the traffickers. Then here comes AT&T or Apple and they say to the cops, "look, we're almost positive he hacked us, but we don't have enough evidence. Here's a "donation" to the department, now go and use that minor drug charge to get us what we need."

Would you be able to wield that sort of influence on police? That's all I'm getting at.

So, first you say, oh, they had a warrant for the hacking stuff, OK. But then, after you already admitted that, you go into this whole thing about AT&T or Apple maybe bribing the cops (the FBI) to go bust him on a drug charge, and insinuating that they could, "wield that sort of influence." Are you on drugs and you just forgot that the whole thing was totally kosher before you wrote the second part?
