Homeless People Lose Internet Access Over Illegal Downloads

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry when I read this. I'm not one to judge, but you'd think everyone having internet access would be more important than downloading illegal content. frown

"We were notified by our Internet service provider that there were people downloading things illegally, and if we didn’t put an end to that, they would turn off Internet to the entire property, which would keep us from being able to do business and provide services," DeCarmine says. Apparently the illegal downloading continued, as did the complaints. This resulted in the Village feeling under pressure to safeguard its Internet connection.
