Assuming HEK/MAK/BAK/KAM are people, their reward or punishment for their presence in NEO should be?

Judge Gallagher Agrees

Wouldn't it be nice if citizen opinions were as easy to determine and factor into legal considerations as has seemed to be the case with Hek/Mac. If one listened to the Greater Cleveland Partnership and their Cleveland+ buddies they would say HEK/MAC are felons... 2 years in jail... if you listen to REALNEO, there are more important issues, and Hek/Mac have value.

I'm glad Judge Gallagher et al listened to real NEO et al.

Disrupt IT

ostensibly citizen opinion

 is factored into our criminal code, though i'd say that has become highly debatable.

can we have a fifth option - leave them alone?
