    Let me see, this guy is claiming, well, if you were cut him up on the 
    highway its OK for him to take your car, after all its not theft, its just 
    joyriding, denying you the use of your own property as a protest to 
    you behaving in a manner he disagrees with.
    Yes, but if the CIA were to hack another government's site would this
    be considered in the same light?   Do individual have special privilege
    in the law that corporate bodies or governmental organizations don't.
    What would be a lawyer's take on this?
