What about the post today where it was revealed that the US Attorney chided Aaron on the day of his death? In the memorandum, it stated that they were ready to take his laptop and peripheral devices.

She said "The e-mail that Defendant Swartz's supplemental memorandum (pdf) cites as paramount to his fifth motion to suppress [evidence against him] is relevant, but not nearly as important as he tries to make it out to be".

If the US gov't bullied Aaron to death, I doubt it was because of that statement. Surely, harsher words have been spoken to defendants.

I don't even understand how that thread reached the front-page of HN considering how devoid of substance it is.
