 Look, Mckinnon broke into the computer systems.

He never broke in, the door was open, he walked in.

 All the protesting or debating won't change the fact that he's a criminal.
Plain and simple, deal with it....  His sentence will be based upon what
comes up in court, and it hardly ever is the maximum.
