We've been talking about this type of thing here for quite some time, it's crazy that something like this has finally happened. I'm constantly
amazed at the junk people will let themselves be brainwashed into thinking, and even when shown why they're wrong over and over, they still repeat
the same incorrect information.
I could see something like this coming, but it really started to show up around this site with the "Harley Guy" thread, when people had themselves
convinced they knew who he was, and that he must be guilty of treason. Never mind that they had the wrong guy and that there was nothing wrong with
what he said. The Truthers WANTED it to be part of their 'conspiracy', and pushed it too far, if for nothing else that cannot seem to conceive that
someone might have a different opinion than them, and may actually be correct.
Whether this guy is actually a truther or not, or committed this act because of 9/11 or some other reason, I would be VERY careful of making death
threats on this site or others. Saying things like line them up in front of the firing squad, hang them, drag them through the streets, and so on are
going to be HUGE red flags now as law enforcement cracks down on this activity.
I know most of you don't do this and are simply misguided and/or get some satisfaction out of figuring things out that you don't believe could have
happened. However, mark my words here, that things are about to shift towards stopping this sort of thing before it happens again. Before you make or
even think about making any excuses for this guy, he just put a huge black eye on your movement, so don't excuse this type of behavior.
I would SERIOUSLY consider auditing threads for death threats, and removing the offending posts while being vigilant in the future of removing them
asap. I like this site, and would hate to see it interfered with by law enforcement.
