BJ's BLOG 10/17/11 "Hackers"
Last week we talked about Chris Chaney, the 35-year-old Florida man who was arrested for hacking into the email accounts of several celebrities, including Scarlett Johansson and Christina Aguilera. We all remember this incident because it is how the nude pictures of Scarlett Johansson surfaced.
Chaney has now come out claiming that he didn’t hack into their accounts for “monetary gain” but because he became “addicted” to looking behind the curtain of famous people’s lives.
Chaney said, “It started as curiosity and it turned into just being, you know, addicted to seeing the behind-the-scenes of what’s going on with these people you see on the big screen every day.I was almost relieved months ago when [the authorities] came in and took the computers… because I didn’t know how to stop doing it myself.”
I can’t stand it anymore; everything is a freaking addiction now! We’ve created a society of losers by basically saying they can make an excuse for anything.
They should make an example of Chaney because as much as people like to see pictures of Scarlett Johansson, it’s still an invasion of her privacy and she doesn’t deserve something that awful happening to her.
He faces 26 counts of computer hacking and can spend up to 121 years in federal prison, and I say go ahead and give him the whole 121 years!
We need to start teaching people that no, you are not special, that you can’t get away with everything, and you will be punished when you behave like an idiot.
