An incendiary case over whether a Kansas church has the right to stage anti-gay protests during military funerals goes to the Supreme Court on Wednesday. The Westboro Baptist Church claims that American war casualties are God's punishment for the country's tolerance of homosexuality. Albert Snyder is suing church leader Fred Phelps for picketing the funeral of Snyder's son, U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Matthew Snyder, who was killed in Iraq in 2006.
So what, exactly, does Hustler Magazine publisher Larry Flynt have to do with any of this?
Attorneys for Phelps are citing Flynt's landmark case against the late Reverend Jerry Falwell as part of the defense. Flynt gives CNN a reaction to his inclusion, and also teases that he's holding onto some potentially explosive political secrets.
With more than $500 million in reported cases last year, cybercrime continues to rise. Internet scams make up much of it, but there's also the lesser known violation of webcam hacking. A skilled hacker can invade and control your web camera for days even months without you knowing it. And the nation has come to learn how damaging secret recordings can be. Rutgers student Tyler Clementi killed himself after his roommate allegedly remotely controlled his web camera and recorded a sexual encounter between Tyler and another man, posting the video online. Cyber security expert Gregory D. Evans talked to CNN's Brooke Baldwin about how webcam hacking is done and how to protect yourself.
