Oh crap. Public apology time.

Dear Laz,
Friday was done in good fun. I really was not trying to call you out.
If I offended you, please forgive me. It was in jest.

Best regards,

“Forget all those pleas for civility based on simple respect for other human beings. There’s an even better reason to watch what you say about other people online...”

No. Simple empathy, courtesy and human respect are reason enough to not descend into vile adolescent insults.

There but for the grace of God, go I.

Just shows that we Kansas City people are not to be trifled with — I don’t care if it is just (1) a confederacy thread, (2) a libertarian/conservative thread or (3) a Sarah thread.

I'm guessing that a lot of the Global Warming/Carbon Credit Profiteers would've liked to kill me when I point out their non-science.

Sample of what their “arguments” sound like to me:

“NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Don't tell me that CO2 is good for plants..NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Big Oil or Big Coal made you say that. You are getting $30,000 a year to shill for scientists that say that the Sun is warming the Earth.
ADMIT IT!!”

“Noo!!! Don't say man-made global warming isn't true! It's all I have. If I can't help destroy the economies of the world and take everyone’s freedom then what good am I?
Who am I?
What am I?!!!”

“George Bush put you up to this didn't he? And that LIAR who founded the Weather Channel.....yeah, you believe his lies over the man who NEVER ever told even a slight inaccuracy, AL GORE! A giant among scientists. Those 31,000 fools at the petition project are fringe nutjobs, they don't know what Al Gore knows. Ha! Do they know that it's :several million degrees” 2 kilometers beneath the surface of the Earth?!?!?!
No. They do NOT. They deny it. DENIIIIIIIIIERS!! Only Al Gore knows. No one else. That's because he is the smartest man ever! Smarter even that Bill Maher thinks he is!!”

It sounds like the guy insulted her on a hip-hop site, but I am really confused about how he even knew her. I suppose they were both posters on a site, commenting on each other’s remarks the way we do here. But probably with lots of vile language.

"It's great inspiration for a novel. At the same time, if what the article says is true, then it's a shame she didn't manage to shoot the jerk before she was caught. It's time people realize that what they post online can do serious damage. Putting crap about someone online shows a serious lack of concern for anyone else. Not only is it cyberbullying, but as far as I'm concerned, if she had succeeded in killing him, she should have a solid case for justifiable homicide." - comment posted by Kate Ryan

Kate Ryan is a moron.

So this involves some Undergroundhiphop dot com? Then this is not surprising at all. This wanna be obviously had some Biggie Smalls, Tupac, Fifty Cent, shoot em up dreams. This will probably earn her site credit there.

Since I can't really know what transpired between the would be shooter and the intended victim that might have led to what took place, I tried to glean a few clues from the blog post that accompanied this FR post. If he posted the kind of thing Erik Sass suggests, Forrest Jamison certainly doesn't seem like a very nice person. A mentally fragile person might react differently to something like that, unlike someone who is more stable and would probably shrug it off.

From The Social Graf via Erik Sass

"It's not clear just what Jamison said to provoke Greathouse to look up his address, arm herself, get in a car, and drive five hours to kill him, but it must have been pretty bad. I searched for her name on Google and came up with a bunch of links to videos with unflattering titles, like "Breanna Greathouse of Kansas City Gets Dissed UGHH," but the videos themselves had all been taken down.

Then I found what I believe may be the offending document -- a post on an online forum called UndergroundHipHop.com, dated September 23, 2010, insulting "Breanna Greathouse" in terms so vile I can't bring myself to even allude to them in circumlocutory fashion. Needless to say, this is just a hunch. But if you were looking for online comments that could plausibly make someone want to kill someone else, these fit the bill.

I'm not saying the murder attempt was justified, of course, and there's clearly more to the story: Greathouse's brother told one local news station that his sister had endured years of teasing, and one of the links to an insulting video (which had been taken down) alluded to supposed mental illness. Meanwhile the pacifist in me says "living well is the best revenge," but since this didn't seem to be possible in this case, Greathouse opted for the next best thing: shoot the sumbitch."

...get in a car, and drive five hours to kill him...

Fortunately, she was as bad an assassin as she was a driver.

So, I guess I'm out of the woods.
