MegaUpload goes down....... with Mr. Dotcom hiding in his mansion

Dude, did not miss any meals.

Kim Schmitz, AKA Kim Dotcom, was arrested this past week. His arrest a came within days of a now failed set of bills in the US Congress which would theoretically combat Schmitz's business model.  This piece in no-way purports to take sides on the arrest, but it appears  Mr. DOCTOM was living the life of a 'ultra uber' wealthy mogul.

Kim Dotcom
I wonder who in the Klan drove the pink Cadillac?

It is reported by multiple sources the FBI led the arrest teams this past Friday.  Apparently, DOTCOM was as adroit as Saddam Hussein at surrounding himself with mechanical security measures.  One, difference, Dotcom did not have a village to which to run and he certainly had no 'spider hole' in which to intern himself.

Hufttngton Post reports......

"Despite our staff clearly identifying themselves, Mr Dotcom retreated into the house and activated a number of electronic-locking mechanisms," said Detective Inspector Grant Wormald from the Organised and Financial Crime Agency New Zealand.

Officers broke the locks and Dotcom barricaded himself into a safe room which officers had to cut their way through to gain access.

"Once they gained entry into this room, they found Mr Dotcom near a firearm which had the appearance of a shortened shotgun," he said. "It was definitely not as simple as knocking at the front door."
The scene must have been reminiscent of the Navy Seal elimination of Osama Bin Laden. Of course, with one exception: no order to kill.  

The article is almost like reading a high-tech mystery short story. News is news and most is boring, but this story will become the subject of movie creators.  Can you imagine a move of which Dotcom's company would have benefited via pirating?

A serious must read article.....

One last point.  How coincidental is it the arrest came just days before the intended vote on the bills in the US congress. I am not much of a conspiracy theorist, but the timing of this one is intriguing. I mean the whole raid was led by the US FBI.  

Speaking of  Raid! Is this not a much better way to handle such criminals vs. bills which could be used to stop open communication among people and access to services and information.

Oh well, another future movie for 'watchful' producers and directors.  Unfortunately, the Italian shipwreck is the other.  Bless the souls of those who lost their lives due to complete human incompetence and disregard for safety.

If you did not read the linked article, you are missing a good screed.
