Legal "Three weeks ago the 23-year-old UK-based administrator of a TV show and movie links site was arrested by police. The site, referred to only as TVShack, could be one of three domains of which two are already controlled by the US government after their seizure as part of Operation in Our Sites. Following his detention in the UK's largest prison, the admin is now fighting his extradition to the U.S. with the help of Gary McKinnon's lawyer." His site only linked; it did not host. The most damning point is that he was found not guilty under UK law. So, does this mean The Netherlands can request extradition of, say, Rick Santorum for his blatant anti-homosexual remarks, which are illegal under Dutch law? That would be fun.

This is how bullies get away with their campaign of hate for so long.

The person being bullied tells the truth. 'He/She Started it'.
The Bully is alibied by his/her mates/Friends/Fellow Gang members who all say 'No he didn't'.

The victim is then punished for telling the truth. The bully wins twice.

Sorry, the 'he started it' excuse is very lame and does not cut any mustard with me. (yeah, I was the victim for many years at school)

Back on topic, I think it would be kinda nice for the Dutch to issue an international arrest warrant for Mr Santorum for his comments that are bordering on a 'hate crime'.
Then we would at least get to see how the US Acts with the extradition request. His crime is equally as bad as someone having some links on his web site.
