At about this time four years ago, in the heat of the Democratic primaries, many of us saw how the Obama campaign utilized the “Alinsky” tactics to combat the story of one Larry Sinclair, who was alleging to have had a sexual encounter with Barack Obama, which also included some drug use. The power of the internet, through the bloggers, was unleashed on Mr. Sinclair with the full force of what one would an empire protecting its leader. There was no concern whatsoever for the legitimacy of the cyberattacks on Mr. Sinclair or anyone in his life. A weaker person would have folded under the intense online pressure that was targeted at Mr. Sinclair. (But the details will make interesting reading when Mr. Sinclair publishes his next book)
Fast forward, and we now see how the Obama campaign is employing the same tactics against the big donors of his opponent, Mitt Romney. They are digging for any tidbit of information to publicly humiliate these private citizens, and have now employed the media, including Politico.com, to be their accomplices.
But even more troublesome is the use of the blogosphere to terrorize individuals, to ruin their lives, for no apparent reason other than a differing opinion.
Here is the story of a Deputy District Attorney in LA who has been the target of ONE BLOGGER, and how the internet has been used to sabotage his entire life:
In the last radio interview Andrew Breitbart ever gave, on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, Breitbart talked about a new ruthless tactic used by thugs against political opponents:
[O]ne of the things they’ve done to people who have worked with me in the past, including an L.A. prosecutor, is to “SWAT.” That means that they’re spoofing phones, pretending to be somebody else’s phone, calling 911, and saying “I killed somebody” and then the person’s home is met with the guns drawn, the SWAT and the helicopters, in a horrifying act. It’s happened twice: once in New Jersey, once in Los Angeles, with an L.A. County . . . prosecutor who [is] associated with me.”
I am that L.A. County prosecutor. And in this post, you’ll hear the hoax call that sent police to my house, pointing loaded guns at me.
THE NIGHT I COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED BECAUSE OF MY BLOGGING
At 12:35 a.m. on July 1, 2011, sheriff’s deputies pounded on my front door and rang my doorbell. They shouted for me to open the door and come out with my hands up.
When I opened the door, deputies pointed guns at me and ordered me to put my hands in the air. I had a cell phone in my hand. Fortunately, they did not mistake it for a gun.
They ordered me to turn around and put my hands behind my back. They handcuffed me. They shouted questions at me: IS THERE ANYONE ELSE IN THE HOUSE? and WHERE ARE THEY? and ARE THEY ALIVE?
I told them: Yes, my wife and my children are in the house. They’re upstairs in their bedrooms, sleeping. Of course they’re alive.
Deputies led me down the street to a patrol car parked about 2-3 houses away. At least one neighbor was watching out of her window as I was placed, handcuffed, in the back of the patrol car. I saw numerous patrol cars on my quiet street. There was a police helicopter flying overhead, shining a spotlight down on us as I walked towards the patrol car. Several neighbors later told us the helicopter woke them up. I saw a fire engine and an ambulance. A neighbor later told me they had a HazMat vehicle out on the street as well.
Meanwhile, police rushed into my home. They woke up my wife, led her downstairs and to the front porch, frisked her, and asked her where the children were. Then police ordered her to stand on the front porch with her hands against the wall while they entered my children’s bedrooms to make sure they were alive.
The call that sent deputies to my home was a hoax. Someone had pretended to be me. They called the police to say I had shot my wife. The sheriff’s deputies who arrived at my front door believed they were about to confront an armed man who had just shot his wife. I don’t blame the police for any of their actions. But I blame the person who made the call.
Because I could have been killed.
The weirdest part of the whole thing was that I halfway expected this might happen. Because I was not the first one it had happened to.
I think it’s about time you heard the call that sent police to my home.
