This is HORRIBLE, what is wrong with you England?

Ars Technica has a story up about how a man in the UK, has been sentenced to 4 years in prison, at the behest AND PROSECUTION of a private company. I don’t care if the guy is guilty as sin the ability of a corporation to decide who to prosecute is HORRID!

The UK is also recently decided to extradite Richard O’Dwyer for what MAY be a crime in the US but ISN’T in the UK. COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT! You read that right, they are extraditing a British citizen from his home in England to the US to be tried for what is a CIVIL offense.

What the hell is wrong with you England? Have you decided to completely give the reigns of power over your citizens to corporations?  Is this what we get to look forward to eventually here in the US?
