Alleged Hacker AND Sex Offender

The two worst things you can be.

You hurt children AND destroy people's computers (ie money, livelihood, etc)?

And it is said that Wikileaks Julian Assange is both.

But that didn't stop CNN from writing a seemingly glowing profile on him. He's described as "charming," "lovely boy," "good with animals," "sensitive," "quiet," "cool and collected," "highly intelligent," with a "wide breadth of interests."

"The Stockholm Criminal Court issued an international arrest warrant for Assange two weeks ago on probable cause in that case, saying he is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and illegal use of force in separate incidents in August. He could be sentenced to two years in prison if convicted."

All that on top of 31+ charges of hacking...and TWO YEARS?

In all fairness, CNN does mention the sex charges...but IMO the overall feel of the piece was almost in awe of the creepy dude.

I guess he goes into the Michael Jackson, Roman Polanski Hall of Fame where certain accomplishments blind many to heinous crimes...
