Dept. of Severe Punishment

Ruling of the court:

...thou shalt live at your parents house. This truly severe punishment got Adrian Lamo, the famous slackerhacker with the lifestyle of a drifter, when finally got caught for one of his attacks.

This guy is also called the "Homeless hacker" and his hacking escapades have not been in the dark - his mission was to show how easy one could take over big computersystems and LANs. But NYT didn´t see his Samaritan-way and got the feds to hunt him down. And now he is sentenced to move back into the old house.

Poor kid. Shouldn't this kind of cruel punishments be forbidden by the Genevaconvention?
