While the feds consider Jeremy Hammond a criminal hacker, thousands of others think of him as an altruistic political activist.Hammond, 28, is accused of leading the massive Stratfor hack, which resulted in the alleged theft of 200GB worth of data from companies and government agencies like the US Army, Department of Defense, Lockheed Martin, and Bank of America.While Hammond pled guilty to conspiracy, he also claims that this hack was fueled by his need to protest and expose the secret actions of the government and private corporations.”People have a right to know what governments and corporations are doing behind closed doors,” Hammond wrote in a statement last May.
