This is a Good Thing. A lot less dangerous to both law enforcement personnel and the accused, not to mention a lot cheaper. However, none of the artciles I have seen mention whether "teekid" surrendered himself or was picked up "off the street." But he must have known the Feds were on to him already. They questioned him, searched his house, and seized several of his computers on the 19th. -- Crist J.
