"arrested a 17-year-old man in Newcastle "
Man? Average 17 year old might look old these days but given the stupidity of the suspected crimes, child might be a better word!

There is no such thing as an adult, or otherwise, crime, just a crime.
The Police will treat him as an adult at 16, the courts at 18, and HMP service 21.

Someone wants to make an example.
"TeaMp0isoN" or "PCeU"?
Which one is cooler? Both or neither? Capitalisation fail to be cool or capitalisation fail to be cool? And, more importantly, does this mean that our beloved custodes are now indistinguishable from gangsta rappas? I think we should be told, etc etc.
more to the point....
Did he encrypt his hard drive and use a huge assed long password that will keep them guessing, or did he do a france and bend over at the first sign of trouble?
Re: more to the point....
Wouldn't he be thrown inside unless he gave them the password anyway?

What's the bet
this guy comes up with a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome at some point during the trial? Most likely right after he's found guilty and is facing jail for umpteen years...
I lay odds of 8:1 in favour.

Maybe the Internet don't but local prisons, do.
With their attitude it's no surprise
With an attitude that they are above the law it's no surprise these clowns got nabbed. Now we'll see if they get a slap on the wrist or proper punishment.
