Good job 10th Circuit Court!

Bankers are scamming the citizens of America for HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars, only to receive a slap on the wrist and a bailout. DeChristopher did the right thing, and will be a HERO until the end of time.

Stupid hurts. And sometimes stupid get you time behind bars. It's easy to be defiant for a day or a week. I'm guessing, though, that he'll be more humble after his sentence is finished.

Really? A hero? Wow. Criminals are not heros.

Christopher chose to break the law. If everyone who was passionate about something chose to break the law then we could not have a stable society. Environmentalists should not be a privileged class. However harsh, this example must stand to show others that this is not an acceptable way to attempt to change society.

It's not a black and white world, or would Olie north be a hero to conservatives? G Gordon? Zimmerman?

Got what he deserves.

Yeah, so why do we keep reading stories about this law breaker who wants to be famous, making him a hero to the misguided souls who worship him?

I'd say that he's had his day in court. Smart moves are mad with knowledge, this was obviously done with passion.

Among his own kind he may be a hero but to the rest of us he is just another convicted felon who will find some doors closed to him until the end of time because of his record. It was his record that dechrstopher was trying to clear.

No honor there.
