Federal judge rules Anons are free to destroy civilization via Twitter

DoJ wanted indicted hackers barred from planning capers on Twitter, IRC

By  

Kershaw, a 28-year-old foreman for a Colorado landscaping company, was arrested along with 15 others for a DDOS attack the DoJ charges they participated in and which was organized by Anonymous.

He was released July 2 on a bond of $10,000 on condition he not access the Internet from any computer and that he allow a probation officer to verify he had not done so.

One other order – that Kershaw not act as an informant for the police without permission from the court – became ironic last week when the FBI arrested 25 others accused of Anonymous hacking and revealed Sabu, a leader of the lunatic-fringe Anonymous spinoff LulzSec, had been acting for months as an FBI informant.
