Anonymous on Trial
Word comes down that a New Jersey teen is facing trial for the DOS attacks on Scientology’s computer’s at the beginning of the Anonymous campaign earlier in the year.
A teenager who took part in a distributed denial of service attack against the so-called church of Scientology has been charged
Dmitriy Guzner, 18, of Verona, New Jersey, is charged with helping in the attack on Scientologist servers in January. He has agreed to plead guilty to a single felony charge of unauthorized impairment of a protected computer and pay $37,500 in damages.
As I said in my first video to Anonymous, this is not a game. Scientology is serious and they want to tie people up in court. You need to be aware of this. One may fall and ten will rise sounds good unless you are that one, like Dmitriy, facing years in jail.
The Justice Department has said that Guzner will be put on trial in the coming weeks and could face up to ten years in prison.
Anonymous as struck a mighty blow against Scientology’s fraud and abuse throughout this year but it’s good to remember that using legal means to educate the public and dry up Scientology’s raw meat is the smart way to go.
I’ll do a video this weekend on this and other subjects. I have no answers but I don’t want to see more Anons facing Dmitriy’s dilemma.
