    "AT&T has since terminated the employee in question."

    I have to say that's a bit harsh. He should've gotten jail time and a huge fine/lawsuit, but to kill the man? That's excessive.

    Damn right. In America trials can take months, years even and if the prisoner is sentenced to death he/she often dies on death row of old age or natural causes before being termina... I mean executed, and that is for far more serious crimes than this one. Whose data did he access, Obamas? What did they do, take him outside and shoot him or just lynch him from the nearest tree? Talk about rough justice.
    Just kidding, the author probably meant to say was his service to AT&T was terminated but I guess we already knew that.
