FBI Half-Life 2 Raids

A weblog post mentioned in a Slashdot story apparently gives the account of a San Francisco native's encounter with the FBI as the fed's raided his home looking for evidence in connection with the theft of the Half-Life 2 source code (story). According to Slashdot (since the site has been, naturally enough, Slashdotted), the blog includes a scan of the FBI's search warrant. Thanks Captain Trips.

I agree with Creston. If they catch the true culprits, I doubt if they'll get more that a hard slap on the wrist.

The judge will look at other circumstances like danger to society etc. I am also peeved at the fact that the code theft is the alleged reason behind the delay of HL2, but this is simply a case of lost income for the creators of HL2. No human life has been threatened. I'm sure it would not hold the same penalty as hacking the national power grid or toying with air traffic control systems.

... but then again they did delay HL2... nah roll out the electric chair!
