    So they are just a bunch of Amateurs! Well I am sure Law Enforcement will be taking these kids down in short order. As part of their punishment make sure they are banned from using computers for a minimum of 20 years in addition to any jail time. The worst way to hurt these kids is take their hardware away!

    Because they sided with terrorists they can be accused of being terrorists themselves. They will all get a lot of jail time and will forever be monitored for being a potential threat.

    Script kiddies trying to act like pro's. Who stores they passwords in a plain text file.

    Good story.

    Worst way to hurt them, take away their internet connection.

    Since there's a terrorism / religious undertone to this, maybe the Brits will hand them over to us for a quick trip to Guantanamo!:D
  10. They should have started their ddos service earlier. Maybe then they could have actually spent the money they obtained by breaking 1000 laws lmfao.

    Instead they broke 1000 laws to ddos gamers mostly then tried to make money AFTER the already got governments attentions xD

    They're not just script kiddies. They are truly *****s. Smarter criminals actually live it up before they get caught. if they get caught. I guess since they had no lives to the point that they had to ddos gamers there really wouldn't be much for them to do with that money anyways.
  11. The hammer of justice squishes yet another lizard
  12. Lizard Squad ends their internet fame by being the laughing stock of hackers. Even worse.... that laughing stock of even the other script kiddies

    I'm fervently hoping they get sent to prison. Whereupon they will have to change their name to, "the somebody else's b***ch squat".

    I think the fact they actually acted like terrorists was enough. Did they actually "side with terrorists"?

    EDIT: Read the interviews. Not surprising... "siding with ISIS/ISIL" is a load of crap. It was tongue in cheek from a bunch of immature script kiddies and as usual people jump to conclusions.

    That fact remains, if you're caught with your hand in the cookie jar, that's the worst time to reply with a smart remark.

    The burden of proof shifts to you to prove, "I wus jes jokin".

    Your parents, or law enforcement, can interpret your remarks any way they damned well please. In fact, when you start spouting crap like "you better leave ISIS alone". It shows you have little to no grasp of the gravity of your situation.

    So, when you're on the hook for a crime, best to hone up your "remorse patter", instead of continuing to spout disdain for authority. After all, they can let you wait to be bailed out, any damned where they please. AFAIK, there isn't a special holding area for overprotected, overindulged little snot noses. Ya get stuffed right in with the rapists and killers.. If you is 18, you is full growed. Keep that in mind.
