    Lessons will never be learned... while I don’t know Ryan personally (Just from his probably dead YT channel n’ stuff) I knew something like this will happen after that E3 Zelda: BoTW thing.

    Honestly as for me, on the child porn thing, he should’ve been in jail for longer due to that. -_-

    So the courts made a case and somehow a successful conviction based entirely on circumstantial evidence. I'd probably serve a decade for the materials on my computer if that's all it takes to secure a conviction for a crime that didn't even happen yet, and may have never happened in the future.
    A guilty plea does not mean the person actually did it necessarily. Plenty of innocent people get coerced into pleading guilty thinking it will help them somehow. Plenty of guilty people plead not guilty even when the evidence is damning. A plea is not evidence in and if itself. I'm not saying either way what happened, but it is suspicious that it's only the Nintendo hackers who get caught with CP, maybe the Nintendo fanbase is just more enticing to those people? Now the police and government aren't above planting evidence and trumping up charges, just look at what they did to Ross Ulbricht. Not saying it's likely, just odd.

    I thought this was just about leaking images of Nintendo IP for a second and was like "oh come on!".
    Then I saw the other part. Fuck this guy.

    Some of these people are wondering why he only got three years, and some are wondering if the material was planted, and if it was, why he pled guilty? Umm, cuz 3 years could equal a plea bargain? I know television is a horrible way to base knowledge of court proceedings, but has the public forgotten all the fiction we watch on TV could actually be based on reality? I dunno. If he is a pedo, then so be it. If he isn't, then he is just getting the fruits of his multiple infractions. Either way, he brought it on himself. I don't think prison violence should be put on anybody, though.

    Ngl the child porn stuff isn't surprising. Idk what it is about Nintendo that attracts so many pedos, creeps, and crazy people. Whenever you see a gathering of adult Nintendo fans, you can bet your ass there will be some pedos, furries, and other weirdos in attendance.

    Another point is that Nintendo is mainly targeted to kids, not FOR kids (big difference). Nintendo has games for all ages, and most ages can enjoy a game that E10+, but it's mainly going to be kids who are going to enjoy it the most. A Switch or a 3DS with a E10+ game is most likely going to be what a mother is going to buy for her 10- year old child for Christmas (unless she misreads/completely ignores the ESRB rating). If there's a bunch of kids who are attracted to a company who make/ sells games targeted to kids, you're most likely going to have a few nutjobs who are clearly messed up.

    Having known most stuff about this case before, the part of this sentencing news that's got me wondering is whether the "cognitive challenges" thing is legit or just something the expensive lawyer wrangled to make things easier on him.

    Interesting read. Sorry that he was driven to suicide. Really, that's a tragedy...

    But it has nothing to do with anything we were talking about. There's not a single indication in the case at hand that child porn was planted on Hernandez's computer.

    Imagine only getting 3 years for having child porn, hacking a major company multiple times, and leaking personal info from said company. He must have had a great lawyer, lol.

    He was also a minor when a lot of the offenses took place. I remember reading about it the last time he was in the news.
