    Default Gary McKinnon extradition


    In case you're not already familiar with this story.

    Gary McKinnon is a UK resident and sufferer of Autism and Aspergers Syndrome. If convicted of computer hacking into a US goverment database looking for evidence of alien life, he could be extradited to the States and face a 70 year jail sentence in a maximum security prison for a crime he would serve no more than 5 years for in the UK.

    There's a link to a petition created by his supporters at the Number 10 website asking for the extradition order from the US government to be blocked and ensure that any legal proceedings are conducted under UK laws. If this fails, he may be sent to the US to stand trial immediately.

    I saw this question coming and this is why I posted in the off topic section. No he's not.

    I read this in the paper. They want to lock him up in a high security prison like gauntanamo bay because he's a national security risk and will be released when hes 110 or something.
