    Cue the conspiracy theorists ... I don't think a single notable unexpected death can happen without conspiracy theories and this won't be any different.

    Sad news.

    This by Glenn Greenwald is worth reading.

    Excellent article. As to the conspiracy theorists, see the first comment on the OPs link.

    Yes - I don't think conspiracies come into this - It seems more likely the the man (who was plagued with drepression) commited suicide as a result of several pressures - not least the looming of an outrageously unjust jail term.
    It's very sad that the US political, business and legal environment is so morally bankrupt that it so often feels that it has to resort to the most inhuman behaviour in pursuing anyone who threatens to uncover it's malignant practices.

    I agree with you Garth. If you have been following the debates re gun control recently in the US, amazingly the biggest fear some of the pro gun lobby have is their own government. Sad.

    I'm not surprised, Denny! I'm pretty scared of my (UK) government too! WinkSad

    Over there, whole swathes of the population are brought up on theories of the malignancy of government: their devotion to the second amendment is based not protection of America but oddly, protection from America. I guess it comes from their history as much as anything, but their stated willingness to fight and kill in this belief is staggering.
