THE MAN CAN'T BUST OUR

THE MAN CAN’T BUST OUR BANDWIDTH: Like most stories, there’s probably more to this than what’s on the surface, but Julian Sanchez writes about Patrick Arthur Richard, who:

volunteered his web hosting services to the Macomb, Michigan, sheriff’s department for two years. When he decided he couldn’t afford to keep doing it gratis, and the department refused to pay, he was hauled off to jail and charged with “extortion,” among other felonies.
