Maybe there are people here that will disagree, but there are two types of hackers. First is "good" which tests his abilities and when he manages to hack a system, reports to the system administrator for the breach, so the sysadmin will be able to fix the flaw. Second is "bad" which, can be harmless, or commercial or for popularity. This case is harmless...
I diagree due to when ur 17, u clearly have enough responsiblity for own actions, he is not 8 years old.
Also, he wasted valuable police and swat time, what is some real ermegency was going on, police were needed but they were too busy arressting an idiot blind kid who obviously has too much time on his hands. (Yes im aware hes blind lol)
I say he gets the force of the law, medical condition or age he should be punished, even if that means juvy as you americans have or parents ground him so badly he wont do it again
Dam "lil" punks
