    Thats exactly why I have zero faith and trust in the American government. Watch out McAfee, America might stick their nose up Belize's ass and help hunt you!

    Honest question. What does America have to do with this at all? The word America is not even mentioned in the article.

    A different article I read, said he wouldn't mind turning his self over to American authorities, that he didn't trust the Belize gov't.

    A movie in the making...


    He's the second IT, programmer person, who's been involved with murder. Hans Reiser of Linux fame was charged and convicted of murdering his wife back in '06.

    Ok. But if he trusts American and not Belize why the comment about hating the American government? I still don't follow.

    In any case, I don't see where America has any jurisdiction here at all. The crime was committed in Belize. I don't think anyone disputes that. The fact that McAfee is an American citizen isn't even relevant unless there's some sort of evidence that he's being railroaded or something.

    The article I mention, I read earlier today, it may have been in the local news site. The link from the OP, I didn't see anything saying he hated the US. My understanding, again from the other article, he moved to Belize for tax purposes.

    He's a person of interest but refuses to turn himself in for questioning because he claims the Belize government is corrupt and wants to kill him. That's kind of ironic for a man who made billions off of peoples' fears and paranoias.

    So he's arguing that he hates American because McAfee left the country to escape from taxes and that somehow caused him to kill this guy (allegedly). The logic is convoluted to me.

    Honestly I know nothing about the Belize government. I know some governments down there are incredibly corrupt and some aren't. No idea if Belize is one of them or not.

    Who's arguing about who hates American?

    The link from the OP posted, I didn't see anything saying McAfee hated the US.

    FFS the comprehension levels of some people are amazing sometimes


    as far as McAfee goes........ the dude is loaded...... in a very accessible place...... apparently not hiding too deep.... since this is about the 20th time in the last week hes given on camera interviews to the media....... if he really feared teh belize authorities for legitimate reasons he could easily get out of there........ thousands of poor south americans flee to the US every day..... youre telling me 1 extremely rich guy cant..... simple fact is the dude is guilty and afraid to face his punishment

    This is the post I was referencing. Wondering why America was even brought into the conversation.

    This article (linked from the bottom of the original article) is much more informative about what is going on in this guys mind than the original article is.

    Anyway, Belize seems like a fine little partly impoverished country, that's stable and far removed from totalitarianism despite what McAffee would have us believe. I'm pretty sure the issue here is that McAffee is paranoid and delusional.

    If he's arrested the trial is likely to last 30 days...

    He's trying to purify an aphrodisiac from bath salts. An aphrodisiac that is applied in powder form to one's anus. He also has a 17 year old Belizian girlfriend.

    The guy is just ****ing nuts.

    Apparently he's been arrested trying to sneak into Guatemala. Good times. He's innocent and he didn't do anything, but he's trying to sneak out of the country.

    John McAfee like the antivirus program? So what?

    Phil Katz of PKARC and PKZIP fame drank himself to death by the ripe old age of 37. How come nobody's making "black helicopter" accusations about Katz' death?
