McAfee, how are you supposed to stop viruses when you can't even hide from the authorities?

Isn't his brain completely fried by mind altering drugs that he's been experimenting with?

How to get away with murder.

"Federal officials escorted the 67-year-old Internet antivirus pioneer through customs spirit him out a side door, out of the view of reporters, according to Miami International Airport's communication director, Greg Chin."

I wonder what was smuggled into the country.

At least now he will have access to all the young women and drugs he needs to really party down until he kills someone here like that DuPont guy.

FTFA: He said he had never used the drug, and said statements that he had were part of an elaborate prank.

There you go. He said statements that it was all an elaborate prank.

What a McAfee might look like : Fred
 
2012-12-13 08:34:51 AM
I know very little about this...

Is he actually accused of murdering his neighbor/is there a large amount of evidence pointing to him as the murderer or is he running from the authorities simply because the idea of being questioned by the authorities in the first place is scary to him?

What am I not grasping here?

During his three-week journey, said McAfee, he disguised himself as handicapped, dyed his hair seven times and hid in many different places during his three-week journey.

I guess Yahoo News is now using 2nd graders to write their stories.

hilarious - he would tend to stick out a bit when I think about my Guatemalan friends.
 
2012-12-13 08:41:23 AM
Okay, so his neighbor complained about his dogs, then his dogs were poisoned, then the neighbor was killed, then he was arrested for the neighbor's death, and now he's back here.

Funny how people who get so chafed by restrictive "rule by law" suddenly are so appreciative of it after finding out how easy it is for "rule by decree" to turn against them.

/libertarians take note
//also, this is why we have that "accountability" and "transparency" thing, not to mention "innocent until proven guilty"

He fled the United States to escape a civil judgment, built a fortified compound in the jungle guarded by gangs and stuffed with prostitutes, then his neighbor turned up dead and he was the considered likely suspect.

In other words, which of those two stories is the case is a matter of who you ask. McAfee claims the government forces who have been raiding his compound can't get to him any other way than by framing him and that he has a lot of "enemies" who want to kill him, the government claims the James Bond supervillain lifestyle finally got to him.

Kinda everything. On the one hand, Belize is corrupt as hell. On the other, he's batshiat insane. We'll find out soon enough.

The latter. He believes the Belize police will kill him.

I think one of his sketchy bodyguards decided to take the initiative and kill the neighbor for killing the boss's dogs.

Not so sure I'd call it "insane," so much as "determined to come out ahead, no matter who he steps on or what laws he has to flout along the way."

/not crazy, just evil, really
//only reason we can't call it what it is, is because the media has spent too much effort convincing us that only conservatives can be "evil," and would rather die than admit there might be more to "evil" than just refusing to call a horse's tail a leg

Correct. And while in Central America in his fortified compound, he regularly posted updates about how to home-cook "bath salts" into new and different designer drugs, including detail on what taking them was like.

A cracked out rich white guy wore out his welcome, annoyed too many locals, probably was high most of the time he did it, and then came running home to momma.

Pretty effin pathetic. If your only job is "live comfortably off your billions in life earnings" and you mess that up, you're worthless. See Phil Spector.

Or was acting more or less with the boss's tacit approval...

Or maybe would have taken a bullet to the face as well if he's got in the guard's way, especially if the guard was the one responsible for caring and raising the dogs and decided to make their deaths a matter for personal vengeance.

Hell, they didn't even get three full sentences in before managing to screw it up.

I enjoyed th Guardian interview where he said he takes the product off his own computer because it's "too annoying".

Also hate that Adobe tries to sneak it on your computer during flash updates. Thanks for teaching my kids that malware tricks are legitimate, farkers.

Remember, kids, don't let anyone tell you money can't buy everything. In this guy's case, it bought him "love" (20-year old Brazilian) and a "murder-someone-and-get-away-with-it" card.
