    “He’s just bored and isn’t into school at all. He’s definitely super quiet, and he keeps to himself. . . . No one really pays any attention to him,” Morris said.

    this is just sad..

    Wow a "gvh support tech" in my neck of the woods LOL

    I remember 9 years ago in computer class I got bored and brute forced the teacher password (the password if I remember was her first initial and last name LOL) and I wiped the whole system clean, and she came up to me and said "did you delete everything?!?!?!" I said no blah blah and she knew I was lying because of the logs but she let me go but said the next time this happens i will have to call the cops. But I learned my lesson from that day. Also I remember 2 weeks later my friend got arrested for looking at porn in the school computer during class and the same teacher called the cops on him - btw it was a Spanish music video he was looking at LOL - ahhhh high school memorys

    With the fucked up school system here the teacher would probarly watch it with you ;-) acceptable only if it's a female teacher.

    But I think the school should really take a look at this in the opposite direction. If he can hack something like a grade system, what else in the school is vunrabale.

  • (...) made it past a password barrier and software security system using a computer in the school and set up the network so he could access it from his smartphone, the sources said.

    Fancy

  • the next Mark Tuckershopburg

  • Wasn't Eric supposed to be a working adult and not 16 years old according to Jon? Or perhaps I remembered wrong and he never made that claim...

    Is this a big surprise? Kiddie hosts can only operate by "employing" kids. This guy is f**ked for life, felonies on his record will make him unemployable for most IT jobs, and he will have a hard time ever getting any job that requires government security clearance. Goodbye to any possibility of big pay checks!

    To be clear, charging a 16 YEAR OLD KID (yes he is a kid, not an adult) with a felony for being a cyber punk is stupid. Kid needs a spanking from his parents and a summer of detentions/summer school to retake classes as punishment.

  • 4n0nx4n0nx Member

    Why arrested? I thought that was only necessary in case of flight risk or danger to the public..

  • Incero said: Kid needs a spanking from his parents

    Parent* it seems :/

    "Walstrom is the son of beloved firefighter John Walstrom, who helped rescue victims on 9/11 and died of an illness in 2013."

    Well I am from the Bronx/Brooklyn and was definitely never spoiled. I Also learned a lot more than 96% of people in this country and 99% more than people on this forum.

  • OnraHost said: Also learned a lot more then 96% of people in this country and 99% more then people on this forum so

    Apparently spelling was not amongst those things

    Bit of an overstatement isn't it? Someone who wasn't spoiled doesn't usually brag like that.

    I'm on a mobile phone riding in a train right now. So find a new way to be just a little more of an asshole than you were yesterday ;)

    And please feel free to correct my spelling errors. I'll be waiting so I can edit the post and give credit to you :)

  • Did not mean to make this into a tiny battle, I am a born and raised NY'er, maybe I should say this generation of kids, sheesh......

    The only spelling error possible would be Then for Than...which was clearly auto correct. You sir are a complete troll smh...

    Because motivational speakers and success stories don't talk about their struggles before the success? No way they could be successful since they just told me they use to be broke!

    Well with that statement I could kind of agree...but it's no way just NY'ers. It's all kids these days spoiled or not. Strict parents are a 1 in a 100 these days.

    Not you silly...the spelling guy who thought the need to make a useless post directed at someone who wasn't talking to him in the first place ;) But I don't think its updated on my side yet :(

  • @OnraHost
    Granted its not just NY but I guessed I mentioned it since I really hate this crazy nanny state. I used to get hit with belts, large ass sticks and I was kept in check, these days a kid could just lie and the parent is taken to court, it is insane the laws on what counts as "disciplining" a child which is why crime seems to be rampant with kids these days.
