Jeremy Hammond, the Anonymous hacktivist who released millions of emails relating to the private intelligence firm Stratfor, has denounced his prosecution and lengthy prison sentence as a “vengeful, spiteful act” designed to put a chill on politically-motivated hacking.
Hammond was sentenced on Friday at federal court in Manhattan to the maximum 10 years in jail, plus three years supervised release. He had pleaded guilty to one count under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) flowing from his 2011 hack of Strategic Forecasting, Inc, known as Stratfor. In an interview with the Guardian in the Metropolitan Correction Center in New York, conducted on Thursday, he said he was resigned to a long prison term which he sees as a conscious attempt by the US authorities to put a chill on political hacking.
He had no doubt that his sentence would be long, describing it as a “vengeful, spiteful act”. He said of his prosecutors: “They have made it clear they are trying to send a message to others who come after me. A lot of it is because they got slapped around, they were embarrassed by Anonymous and they feel that they need to save face.”

I know this picture’s been going around but…
THIS IS NOT THE RADIATION LEVELS FROM THE FUKASHIMA INCIDENT.
“. This map was the Tsunami Wave Height predictive index set out by NOAA prior to the tsunami landing on the shores of Japan. You will notice the same exact pattern and colors used. Also notice on the other map that the Legend is also in (CM) Centimeters. Do they even measure nuclear radiation in Centimeters? Most maps would also contain a title, so that we would be able to understand the context of the map as well.
PLEASE GUYS FACTCHECK
PLEASE STOP SPREADING THIS FEARMONGERING NONSENSE.
Good god, man! There’s over twenty centimeters of radiation outside!
