So basically a member on my home chan, operatorchan, is being investigated for chopping up a 27-year old woman and having CP. This oughta be good. Wait'll they find our pony thread. http://www.macon.com/2011/08/25/1677683/internet-posts-about-death-linked.html Stephen McDaniel, aka SoL, used to be one of our members. Although he was a bit odd and made a bunch of unsavory posts, opchan's always been about freedom (at least as far as guns go--somehow animu is allowed only in /dmz/ but ponies are acceptable on the regular parts of the site) and being pro-gun AND a chan, we're bound to have some fringe members, so his posts alone aren't unique. One of the moderators, Frankengun, is a Georgia native so he was able to meet SoL IRL to serve as a jury member for some mock trial project that SoL was in. Recently Frankengun posted a thread in our news section linking to an article about how SoL is now a prime suspect in chopping someone up. There was a pretty good 'at first I was/but then' picture of the murder victim and then a picture of a torso, but the old thread got fagged up and deleted. Current thread here. http://operatorchan.org/n/res/160718.html He's got CP charges tacked on now. Even lulzier is that a bunch of soccer moms called 'websleuths' was tracking development about the case and found out about opchan. They read a bunch of his sketchier posts, did some amateur psychoanalysis. Discussion of opchan starts on page 10 of thread 9, which I've linked below. They've currently on thread 10 and decided not to link to it so that the admin can edit it. http://websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=147658&page=10 There was some hurrdurr on a couple opchan members' part about deleting SoL's old posts like that would do something. Also 'da gubment framejob,' etc. Oh, and discussion in dmz: http://operatorchan.org/dmz/res/430.html some fun bits: SmoothOperator: Anyway its said to be owned and operated [owner is frequent poster Operator] by a twenty year old kid who still lives at home with mom and dad and in "real life" owns not even a single gun.. Go figure.. Lost in a fantasy world..sound familiar?? Referring to PBE fiction some of our guys wrote: >"They frequently talk of starting their own death squad and traveling the world killing locals for money." Godverdomme: >GypsiesTramps&Thieves: That means that the people who knew who he was on OperatorChan did not come forward to volunteer all of this to police. Seems they really protect their own or are afraid of being investigated due to their own eye-raising comments. LOL. Here we go again. OpChan, you heard it, we have "eye-raising" comments to hide. And to hide them, we post them on a fully public and google-indexable (or NSA, FBI, CIA, Echelon indexable) web site where anyone can post what he wants within legal limits. PERFECT place to post about premeditated murder and stuff, I'm sure. Wut: BAHAHAHAHAHAAH Mods locked the thread on their forum... They also declined my registration... Seems like they wanna make sure that the thread remains as a character attack, and that no objective posts can be made. The moment a few posters softened up to idea of us, they put that shit on lockdown. He was referring to: >Hi Bessie, >I apologize for what I said about the dudes at Operatorchan. Can you please delete it? I have apparently made it to their board and I feel bad for what I said. I am married to a redneck nerd...so I guess that does make me a middle class wife /loser acting like a Jr. Detective on this site. >I love that they are passionate about something. I think that is kind of hot. >I read through the posts and for the most part they are just being "guys." I think every site has a few people like the ones I described or as someone on Operatorchan said "fringe element." If Stephen is guilty, then I would hate to have him ruin their place to meet and release some testosterone when they aren't really doing anything wrong. >I do think everyone is innocent until proven guilty, but their comments about Lauren made me mad. That was uncalled for. I have seen their posts about what they "would do" if someone raped and/or murdered their wives, children, or sisters, so I would hope they could understand OUR passion for convicting the person responsible, even if it might be one of their own. Also, child porn is not funny and sometimes it is not "planted." >Sooo, I apoligize Operatorchan. I am only afraid of some of you. That being said, should terrorists attack and the "sheet gets real" I hope that I can make some awesome freeze dried ice cream for your battles. >PS: How can you believe that McD was framed by the government and yet believe in the judicial system enough to say that anyone is innocent until proven guilty? >Scratch that. I would rather know the answer the age old question of why engineers wear black socks with shorts...and don't act like they don't. AcidMan: The problem I have is that these cornpones deliberately gave all of SoLs posting history here to the cops, which will then be taken out of context and used against him brutally. If he is guilty, then there will be enough real evidence against him to convict him. I am absolutely aghast at these fuckers trying to smear a man into a prison cell or worse. The whole idea is just fucking unconscionable. There is no problem with opinions and conjecture. We all have a right to those. But translating that into cherrypicking bullshit "evidence" that's given to the authorities that it might be used to deny a man an otherwise fair trial based on real evidence? Fuck them. Fuck them hard with a rusty chainsaw covered in the blood of Khorne. I make no apologies for insulting these dimwitted do-gooders. Because of their egotistical stupidity there is a chance an innocent man may hang.
