    Those stupid guys from the STG need to cool down and stop playing Call of Duty, seriously.

    So, Poor Dotcom is branded as a terrorist for what?

    Running a useful website, that Hollywood happens to despise?


    Is it just me, or does this arrest seem awful similar to Osama bin Laden's "arrest", with the exception of no fatalities?

    He's an idiot and I don't feel bad for him at all. He certainly isn't "poor Dotcom".

    All those men are told is to go capture Kim from their superiors. They're not told anything that they don't need to know, so as far as they're concerned, he was a terrorist (hence why they screamed at his nanny asking if they had bombs.) All they do is follow their orders, and that's what they did.

    okay, i'm taking personal offense off of this article, because i'm a Filipino. seriously, ask a nanny twice about bombs? WTF is Kim Dotcom anyway, a Bin Laden sympathizer or something? we don't even remotely look like Middle Easterners, more like Polynesian (think Hawaii-- we look like that, except smaller) or maybe Thai.


    if anything, this arrest might have been made on the assumption that Kim's money made him somewhat like a Mafioso--rich, grand, and fully loaded with tons of armed goons roaming the grounds.

    They were probably told to expect bombs, major caches of weaponry, and other defenses to elicit this sort of a raid.
    He was essentially branded a terrorist. It's becoming easier for this to happen every day, all around the world.

    He should sue the police if they don't pay for all the damages, especially considering they were INVITED IN.

    lol. so expecting the worst means they didn't do their homework and recon'd the place. otherwise they would have known that it was just one bodyguard and some asian nannies.

    It seems to me like they just wanted to make an example out of somebody, and this is the guy they chose.

    "Help pirates and this is what we'll do to you, next!"

    Hell.
    What the fuck? That sounds like way, way, way too much for just running a file sharing service. One with legitimate uses at that. They wrecked this guy's house, traumatized his kids, and fucked over around half the people on the internet because this guy made a website that can be used for illegitimate purposes. The guy made some cash on it, so what? Megaupload was a good service. A good service with a ton of legitimate stuff on it.

    World's going crazy these days.
