How ironic is it?

That the family of this kid writes this below?:

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. The US Attorney’s office pursued an exceptionally harsh array of charges, carrying potentially over 30 years in prison, to punish an alleged crime that had no victims. Meanwhile, unlike JSTOR, MIT refused to stand up for Aaron and its own community’s most cherished principles.

But, yet, progressives still want and advocate for big Government. This just does not make any sense to me, at all. When will the progressives finally wake and realize that the Government, is not your friend at all. Most likely, when it is too late and ALL of our freedoms are taken from us.

Short Bio: I started blogging about politics in 2006, as a populist, skeptical left of center type, with a blog called simply, "The Populist." In 2007, that blog was hacked by some nasty, evil neoconservatives who sought to silence me. During the 2008 election cycle, around the middle of 2007, I began to see that I really did not fit within those circles and after my blog was hacked; I created a blog called "Political Byline" and I kept writing; first as a Centrist and then as a Paleoconservative. For my long bio, see the "About Me" section on this blog.
