Hacker David Kernell goes to camp

Posted by joshpainter on January 13, 2011

The 23-year old son of a Democratic Tennessee state legislator, David Kernell, has begun his term in a dormitory-like, unfenced federal resort prison, a Bureau of Prisons spokesman said Thursday. Kernell was convicted last year of unauthorized access of a computer and obstruction of justice by hacking into Sarah Palin’s e-mail account in September 2008:

Kernell reported on Monday to serve a term of a year and a day at the minimum security facility in Ashland, Kentucky, Bureau of Prisons spokesman Edmond Ross said.

“He’ll be expected to work in food service or landscaping or any number of jobs the staff will assign him,” Ross said. Ross said all inmates must work, if medically cleared.

[…]

Kernell is living in an open dormitory and inmates have access to educational, religious and other types of programing as well as recreational opportunities and social visits with persons who are cleared, Ross said. While there are no fences, all inmates are supervised at all times, Ross said.

Great opportunity to work on his tennis game…

‘Obamacrat’ David Kernell sentenced to 366 days

Posted by joshpainter on November 12, 2010

A federal judge has sentenced the son of Tennessee state Rep. Mike Kernell (D-Memphis), convicted of hacking Sarah Palin’s e-mail, to one year and one day in federal custody, according to a report by Knoxville television station WBIR:

David Kernell was arrested in 2008 for hacking the former Alaska governor’s e-mail.

He recommended that Kernell serve his time at the Midway Rehabilitative Center on Magnolia Avenue in Knoxville, but that will be determined by the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The judge also sentenced Kernell to three years probation.

Kernell will turn himself in at a later date.

Defense attorney Wade Davies had filed motions seeking probation at the sentencing, contending Kernell used publicly available information to guess his way into the e-mail in a prank. Prosecutors said the hacking was motivated by Palin’s status as a governor and candidate for vice president.

Last spring, a federal jury found Kernell guilty of obstruction of justice and unauthorized access in the breach of Sarah Palin’s e-mail this April. He gained access to her account in September 2008.

A former University of Tennessee student, Kernell described himself on his Facebook page as an “Obamacrat.” He was a member of UT for Barack Obama.

Sarah Palin: It’s War, Not a Crime Spree

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 5, 2010

Complete transcript of Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

It’s War, not a Crime Spree

Today at 3:39pm EST

President Obama’s meeting with his top national security advisers does nothing to change the fact that his fundamental approach to terrorism is fatally flawed. We are at war with radical Islamic extremists and treating this threat as a law enforcement issue is dangerous for our nation’s security. That’s what happened in the 1990s and we saw the result on September 11, 2001. This is a war on terror not an “overseas contingency operation.” Acts of terrorism are just that, not “man caused disasters.” The system did not work. Abdulmutallab was a child of privilege radicalized and trained by organized jihadists, not an “isolated extremist” who traveled to a land of “crushing poverty.” He is an enemy of the United States, not just another criminal defendant.

It simply makes no sense to treat an al Qaeda-trained operative willing to die in the course of massacring hundreds of people as a common criminal. Reports indicate that Abdulmutallab stated there were many more like him in Yemen but that he stopped talking once he was read his Miranda rights. President Obama’s advisers lamely claim Abdulmutallab might be willing to agree to a plea bargain – pretty doubtful you can cut a deal with a suicide bomber. John Brennan, the President’s top counterterrorism adviser, bizarrely claimed “there are no downsides or upsides” to treating terrorists as enemy combatants. That is absurd. There is a very serious downside to treating them as criminals: terrorists invoke their “right” to remain silent and stop talking. Terrorists don’t tell us where they were trained, what they were trained in, who they were trained by, and who they were trained with. Giving foreign-born, foreign-trained terrorists the right to remain silent does nothing to keep Americans safe from terrorist threats. It only gives our enemies access to courtrooms where they can publicly grandstand, and to defense attorneys who can manipulate the legal process to gain access to classified information.

President Obama was right to change his policy and decide to send no more detainees to Yemen where they can be free to rejoin their war on America. Now he must back off his reckless plan to close Guantanamo, begin treating terrorists as wartime enemies not suspects alleged to have committed crimes, and recognize that the real nature of the terrorist threat requires a commander-in-chief, not a constitutional law professor.
