    Oh, wait - nobody was harmed by this announcement
    how do you know this? If Bryan Willman is just some guy, completely unrelated to all this, and now being subject to harassment and threats on him, maybe his family, vandalism of his home, his car, does that seem like "just the price to pay"?  What about his rights?

    •  None of this happened, did it? (0+ / 0-)

      Bryan Willman - if he even exists - is just fine. No threats were made, he wasn't subject to harassment, nor was his family, there wasn't any vandalism done to either his home or his car, and his life wasn't even ruined.

      Really now - what were the chances that any of this would happen to him in the first place?

      •  Bryan Willman exists, he's a real person (0+ / 0-)

        And he's not a cop or anything remotely close to it. He has a wife and children. The person who tagged him as the cop wasn't even really Anonymous and Anonymous was pissed at the jerk that named Willman.

        Willman indeed received threats. His name, address and phone number were published by the jerk pretending to be anonymous.

        Its amazing to me how some tough guy hiding behind a DailyKoS UID can be so callous. Its a shame that you can't be made to stand in front of Willman and his family and tell him what you're saying here.

        •  Police Chief Jackson is your source? (0+ / 0-)

          Really?  This guy?

          This is the only source I found who says that Willman has received death threats. I'm open to a credible source, but I'm sure you'll understand if I dismiss out of hand anything that guy has to say.

          Especially considering that he's the guy who could have - and should have - identified the real murderer in the first place. An action that would have avoided this entire situation. Yet you place your blame on Anonymous, and yet again, what are the chances that the kneejerk press was right about that? Not very high, because now you admit it wasn't even Anonymous.

          None of this is about "callousness". It's about wild theories that border on CT which inevitably and predictably prove to be foolishly wrong in the light of the real facts.

          And you're still doing it. Chief Jackson?  Really? And who exactly was your "jerk"? If I were you I'd research that, because if it turns out to be someone on Jackson's staff, your whole premise is going to really look sorry. And it's not that Jackson didn't have ample incentive to pull off something like that.

          •  No, Anonymous itself is the source (0+ / 0-)

            Don't put words in my mouth. Willman turned out to NOT EVEN BE a police officer!!! Are you going to deny that??? And yet, you don't see a problem with innocents being falsely accused. Acceptable collateral damage I suppose. Like I said. Easy to be a tough guy behind a DailyKoS ID. I wish you could have to stand up in front of Willman and his family and tell him exactly what you've said in these comments.
