Want Edward Snowden pardoned? You're in the minority, say pollsters

Well, Matt, seems this Snowden chap found evidence of mass criminal activities, distributing and placing malware, intercepting phone conversations - all illegal in the EU without a court order. Invasion of privacy on a grand scale, too - not nice. Without Snowden there wouldn't be much evidence of the NSA's wrongdoings, and that;s why Snowden ought to be recognised as a hero, for bringing their illegal activties - and those of GCHQ- into the public view. And being a peeping Tom, whether on an individual basis or as state-sponsored cybercriminals maynot cause quantifiable harm, but that doesn;t get away from the fact that it's still morally wrong. Or do you subscribe to the notion that if you don;t have to bring in the insurers no harm done?
