Update on the situation with Matthew Keys, who is facing charges in a case involving Anonymous. Matt, a SFB contributor, faced criticism last week over his reporting of unvetted information on police scanners in relation to the Boston Marathon story, which he defended on Facebook last night. (No reason was given for the firing, but we didn’t work with Matt on the story.) Whatever the case, we wish our friend the best. — Ernie @ SFB
EDIT: Philip Bump offers a roundup on the situation for The Atlantic Wire.

We are aware of the charges brought by the Department of Justice against Matthew Keys, an employee of our news organization. Thomson Reuters is committed to obeying the rules and regulations in every jurisdiction in which it operates. Any legal violations, or failures to comply with the company’s own strict set of principles and standards, can result in disciplinary action. We would also observe the indictment alleges the conduct occurred in December 2010; Mr. Keys joined Reuters in 2012, and while investigations continue we will have no further comment.

Anonymous has observed for some time now the trajectory of justice in the United States with growing concern. We have marked the departure of this system from the noble ideals in which it was born and enshrined. We have seen the erosion of due process, the dilution of constitutional rights, the usurpation of the rightful authority of courts by the “discretion” or prosecutors. We have seen how the law is wielded less and less to uphold justice, and more and more to exercise control, authority and power in the interests of oppression or personal gain.
A message posted to the hacked website of the U.S. Sentencing Commmission • Decrying the death by suicide of internet pioneer Aaron Swartz, whose family and friends have suggested was hounded towards suicide by an especially harsh prosecution being brought against him, for a large-scale downloading and alleged free releasing of academic articles (he faced a possible 35 years in prison, and 13 felony counts). Now, hacker group Anonymous has threatened vengeance over Swartz’s tragic death, having hacked the U.S. Sentencing Commission site and issuing a further threat that they’ve obtained information from secret government networks that they may release in retribution. The incident is being viewed as a “criminal investigation,” according to an FBI executive assistant director, Richard McFeely: “We are always concerned when someone illegally accesses another person’s or government agency’s network.” source

It’s a disgusting video … it’s stupidity. But you can’t arrest somebody for being stupid.
Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla • Explaining why no new charges will follow the recently leaked video of former Steubenville High School football player Michael Nodianos making jokes about the alleged rape of an unidentified 16-year-old student. Nodianos’ former teammates Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond are currently the only two people facing charges for the alleged sexual assault, though neither is being tried as an adult. Sheriff Abdalla’s announcement was intensely booed by those gathered for “Occupy Steubenville” on Saturday, and we doubt the decision will do much to alleviate tensions in a town increasingly divided by this controversy. source
