Does anyone have any recollection of Lori Drew being SWATted? I recall a letter writing campaign, a boycott, there was what seems to be some neighborhood harassment in the form of paintballs and bricks – but Ron Brynaert is specifically trying to vilify the Head Moron by pointing out that
another blogger a commenter left Lori Drew’s address in his comments section five years ago and that Drew was supposedly SWATted as a result. Another blogger who has her own blog, where she blogged much more extensively about Lori Drew and the suicide of Megan Meier, to the point that she was interviewed by The Age about her identification of Lori Drew.
Brynaert’s link documents nothing about Lori Drew being SWATted, and nothing about any bloggers revealing any information. It does report a neighbor saying he’s glad the address it out there, and another neighbor saying that he wishes someone would bomb Lori Drew’s house.
So why is Brynaert going after Ace while leaving the
blogger commenter who posted the address, and the neighbors who were arguably inciting violence, alone? Ace has blogged about Brett Kimberlin, the Speedway Bombing, and the SWATtings of Erick Erickson and Patterico , while the blogger who outed Lori Drew has not. We shouldn’t be surprised that a group who is spending their time cyberbullying has chosen Lori Drew’s cause to champion.
And in other vileness from the Brett Kimberlin crew, one of their twattlers is pushing the idea that Patterico wasn’t SWATted. Apparently it’s not enough that several armed uniformed sheriff’s deputies were first on the scene, Patterico was just fortunate that there wasn’t time to deploy more heavily armed, potentially trigger-happy cops.
UPDATE: The blogger who blogged extensively about the Michelle Maier suicide is not the same person who posted Lori Drew’s address, on Ace’s site, and never posted Drew’s address on her own blog. That may be a hit-and-run commenter, as the commenter’s hashtag and screen name don’t appear in ANY other comments in the minx.cc system. Corrections above.
