    Check out the message on the main page: http://www.forsakethetroops.info

    I honestly don't believe this for a second, it's probably just another ploy to get people to feel sorry for him. IF this is true, then there will definitely be an article in a local Syracuse newspaper and whatnot.

    And IF it is true, karma sure is a bitch :Ownedd:.

    UPDATE: It was confirmed that this was nothing more than a hoax, go HERE for more info.

    it's bullshit, for the reasons I highlighted:


    On Monday evening, the webmaster of Forsake The Troops was brutally assaulted by two men, thought to be members of the military, in response to their opinions about this website. Mr. Crook had been the target of numerous death threats and trespassers at his residence. All of these threats were saved and have been turned over to the authorities.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    UPDATE:
    At 6:19pm Eastern time, Michael Crook died of his injuries, after being rushed by ambulance to the leading hospital in the area for head trauma. The two men who allegedly assaulted him are currently in the custody of police. Mr. Crook died with his wife and infant daughter present.

    It is therefore the decision of his family, and associates that Forsake The Troops goes offline, to prevent further incidents of violence and threats against his family. Therefore, this domain will permanantly go offline at around 5pm Eastern time, on Tuesday, May 17th, 2005.

    Comments, and well-wishes may be addressed to [B][email protected][/B]. Media inquiries (no interviews with family at this time), or sincere inquiries from well-meaning people may be directed to (315) --------.

    Leave a voice mail message and your call will be returned by our media representative. The family requests privacy at this time.

    You liberals sure like to twist the facts. :ugh:

    Spitting in the face of military wives who have husbands in Iraq and telling them that he hopes their husbands die a painful death != expressing your opinion :rolleyes:.

    You can exercise whatever freedom you like, but just like any right, abuse has consequences.

    Michael Crook’s disgusting “forsake the troops” site alleges Crook was murdered today by two soldiers. Lovely. Thanks to commenters Airman Eric X and Peter1968 for the tips.

    UPDATE: Some commenters think this too is a stunt, as it appears not ot have been run in any Syracuse media. We’ll see.

    UPDATE x2: On Tuesday, 5/17/05 at 10:40 a.m. PDT, I put in a call to Crook’s media representative at (315) 295-2602 asking for details about the location of the alleged murder, the hospital, and which police department had been involved. We’ll see if they call back with any real information. I also left a message for Lieutenant Joe Cecil (sp.?) of the Syracuse Police Department asking if he knew anything about the alleged incident. Meanwhile, feel free to call the inquiry number yourself, send an email to [email protected] [email protected], or check his forum for any corroborating details. I can’t do that myself, as my prior comments and/or blog posts got me on his sh’list a long time ago.

    UPDATE x3: The commenters were right, this was a hoax. A mere four minutes after I left the above message for Lieutenant Cecil, he returned my call advising me his office had been flooded with media inquiries about Mr. Crook’s alleged murder. He assured me none had occurred, and that if such a murder had occurred anywhere near Syracuse, his department would have known about it. In the end, Michael Crook is an even bigger scumbag than we thought he was.

    UPDATE x4: Army Times (h/t: UrbanGrounds)has more.

    I don't condone killing some asshole over his misguided beliefs, but it's one thing to bash the military folks, then fake your death and blame that on them as well. This guy needs some mental help, stat.

    I'm not a liberal, dumbshit.

    You're condoning death based on words. Untwist your panties, he didn't spit in anyone's face. Don't be so pussyhurt about someone's opinion. He just wished they would die just like you wish he would die. That doesn't make you much better than him. :ugh: WWJD :hsugh:

    "That's wrong for people to wish others would die, I wish he would die!"

    Irony, much? :hsugh:
