Mourning Father Says Aaron Swartz Was "Killed By the Government"

The Chicago Sun-Times says:

Aaron Swartz was “killed by the government,” his father, Robert Swartz said at a memorial service Tuesday morning for the 26-year-old tech genius who killed himself in the face of felony charges he’d stolen millions of files from MIT.

Swartz said his son was “hounded by the government, and MIT refused him.”

Everything about this story makes my heart hurt.
