Aaron Swartz. RIP. How the kids fought for civil liberties and pissed off the Feds.
January 13, 2013
Aaron Swartz was found dead in his New York apartment on Friday. Apparently it was suicide.
His family issued this statement:
“Aaron’s death is not simply a personal tragedy. It is the product of a criminal justice system rife with intimidation and prosecutorial overreach. Decisions made by officials in the Massachusetts U.S. Attorney’s office and at MIT contributed to his death.”
