wisconsin teacher arrested for blog comment

via newsvine
wisconsin appears to be a state chock full of weirdos. like these kids who try to dig up a dead chick to have sex with her corpse....and there is that whole jeffrey dahmer episode...

then theres this freak:

#2 of the ten worst congressmen - james sensenbrenner, jr. - nazi republican from wisconsin
more on him here and here.
according to congresspedia, representative sensenbrenner, makes his living off of his great-grandfathers invention: the kotex feminine pad. so you know hes got some (no pun intended) deep seated issues.

anyway, we werent surprised to learn that this incident arose from the cheesehead state. someone who was trying to be a troll left the following comment in a post (see link) on a wisconsin blog called "boots & sabers"
“Looking at those teacher salary numbers in West Bend made me sick. $60,000 for a part time job were you ‘work’ maybe 5 hours per day and sit in the teachers lounge and smoke the rest of the time. Thanks God we won on the referendum. But whining here doesn’t stop the problem. We’ve got to get in back of the kids who have had enough of lazy, no good teachers and are fighting back. Kids like Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold members of the Young Republicans club at Columbine. They knew how to deal with the overpaid teacher union thugs. One shot at a time! Too bad the liberals rip them; they were heroes and should be remembered that way.”
first of all this comment doesnt even make any sense. nevertheless, it "scared" someone enough -- probably a teacher with a guilty conscience, to call the cops.

if you look in the "about us" section of the blog you will quickly learn that the two guys who run the boots & sabers "owen" & "jed" are a couple ding ding ding you guessed it right wingers. owen says that he is a "registered republican" and jed says that hes "a libertarian on domestic issues, and somewhere to the right of 'bomb them back to the stone age' on foreign policy issues." now these are the very people that claim to be for less governmental regulations, lower taxes and more freedom.

yet "owen" writing in his explanation about what happened in this incident says that he was sitting in his deer stand early one morning when he received an email from a west bend, wisconsin police detective. how he received an email whilst on his deer stand is a mystery -- maybe he had his blackberry with him or maybe he received it through his borg implant, we dont know.

so what does "owen" do? without even bothering to check if this was a legitimate email because email addresses, headers and so forth are easily forged, he immediately forwards it to his "'ol lady" "jed" who them promptly retrieves the information and sends it to the police detective. this is all without any warrant or any explanation from the police to the blogger as to why the police wants the information to begin with.

in "owens" explanation when he attempts to backpedal and explain why he did it he writes: "When I gave the detective the IP address, I assumed that they would find him, chew him out a bit for being an idiot, and leave it alone." heres a newsflash for you -- the police are not running a baby sitting service - the cops are there to arrest your ass. thats what they do.

right wing lying hypocrits like "owen" & "jed" are one reason we so, so, so, hope that the supreme court in district of columbia v. heller rules that the right to bear arms doesnt apply to average citizens. not because we are for gun control - coz we're not. we think that you ought to be able to own ak-47's or uzi's and you should be allowed to saw off your shotgun barrel as short as you please and you should be allowed to carry a pistol concealed or not and not have to get permission from the state.

we hope that the supreme court rules that way in order to wake up these bunch of slugs so they will finally see just what the country has become -- mostly with their full support and encouragement.

and what will the right wing lying, hypocrites do when the police or blackwater or whoever arrives at their front door to collect their guns? they wont do anything but give them up because after all its the law. then they will run to their blogs and bitch about it. then thanks to people like "owen" & "jed" the cops will get their ip numbers and toss them in the clink for being homegrown terrorists.
