Hong Kong police have arrested a 21-year-old man after he apparently bragged on Facebook of his intent to disrupt several government web sites.

I am struggling
to believe that he was other so stupid as to think putting it on facebook was a good idea or that he was THAT naive to believe its not monitored!!!!

Indeed. I facepalmed as soon as I read "after he apparently bragged on Facebook". Some people are just too stupid to live.

Fools pissing of the Chinease Govt

On top of that, anyone pissing of the Chinease government is going to be dead in about 20 seconds anyway
