I have a friend with Asperger's Syndrome who also has excellent hacking skills. I wonder if it goes hand-in-hand ...

No he committed the act in this country so no he should serve any penalty in this country based on our legal system.

Sure the US court sentence is very much severe, but I dont think thats a true reason to prevent him from being extradited.

Actually he should not be extradited,

Three main reasons...

1/ This extradition treaty with the US was part of Tony Blair's unquestioning support for Bush and so should be struck out of law.

2/ On a more legal / technical basis this law was signed into effect in the UK on the understanding that the US sign a reciprocating law in the US, however Congress has refused to sign such a law and so we should not be upholding a one sided law. No country allows such a one sided extradition to stand... apart from the UK it seems.

3/ Lastly the US Justice system leaves a lot to be desired here in the UK you would probably not even get a prison sentence for this so the punishment does not fit the crime, the crime was committed here so really he should not be extradited.

I would be not at all surprised if Obama asks the UK to repeal this law as it un-justly gives the US to much leverage, the UK government should make steps to repeal this now if it does not want to be seen as a simpering Lap Dog.

I agree with (the rather politically active) tibetfreedom. The one-way extradition treaty with the US needs ending.

You act as if Obama were independent, do not be so naive.

Obama work for Banksters, he does what they tell him to do. They own Obama, they paid to get him elected.

Like TV, democracy is America is a sham. Again, so is Obama.

Forget about "hope and change," and get ready for another staged terrorist attack... just like they had in Mumbai a few months ago.
