Regarding the prosecution of Aaron Swartz, the New Yorker’s Tim Wu writes:
“It’s one thing to stretch the law to stop a criminal syndicate or terrorist organization. It’s quite another when prosecuting a reckless young man.”
I wonder if Mr. Wu will write 800+ words on every poor black kid caught up in the legal system over marijuana possession. Or graffiti. Or loitering. Or if his view of “justice” is limited to folks like himself and Swartz.
