UK MPs are calling for hacker Gary McKinnon to serve any sentence he receives in a British jail.

If you can't do the time then don't do the crime.
Why should we pay to keep this guy in prison?

If his offence was against USA Targets he should get USA punishment surely.

Mr McKinnon could face decades of jail time, and millions of dollars in fines. I cant see him serving many years in a UK jail.

Is that the problem, the US system to hard for our soft MP's

Dont know why they are interfering,the Americans should tell them to keep their noses out.

really care what happens to this man. One way or another it looks as though he's going to jail for a long time, and if he's convicted in America he should be a burden on the American taxpayer.

I feel that he should get an award as he as proved a really valuable point that there system was not secure

Here's a link to a 2006 BBC interview with Gary McKinnon.

I found it an interesting read.

'I feel that he should get an award as he as proved a really valuable point that there system was not secure'

On that basis succesful spammers should also get an award for proving that anti-spam programs don't work!

Get real.
