    One of the chief opponents of SOPA was killed. Did the government kill him? Was it suicide?

    Good chance. No doubt, some powerful people benefit from his death though.

    He killed himself. Certainly the stress of the hacking prosecution contributed to it, but he made the decision himself.

    As someone who's best friend's dad committed suicide when we were kids, I think suicide is about the shittiest thing one can do to one's loved ones.

    Or course The Great Gasbag empathizes with the kid who felt so victimized by legal prosecution because he actually imagined he stole all that stuff for justice!
