What they seem to be scrapping over is the case of Anne Knopf, a former teacher in Wisconsin who was boffing her daughter's 13 year old boyfriend. The seedy details had this kid driving over to her place in the middle of the night where she would molest him while her husband and daughter slept on upstairs. Previous anonymous strangers had offered up both defense and denouncement but the new crop of crusaders seem to be new. Based on the IP logging, there are four different computers currently clashing in the back alley of my LJ.
What I find remarkable is that someone just happened to stumble over the entry and then managed to find a couple other debating partners out of the blue. On the other hand, it's nice to know that Anne Knopf has since been convicted and her cover story was shown to be a tissue of lies. She had claimed that the kid's father had some sort of vendetta and there was a conspiracy to frame her. It's always nice to know how these sort of cases resolve after they make an initial splash in headline news and without all the anonymice, I never would have known how it turned out.
I guess I should pop back to the entry and add my two cents, but part of me is curious how long the raging anonymice will go if I just keep out of it. I will say one thing though, it was a crime that she only got 9 months in jail for what she did. That's a travesty of justice no matter how you slice it. You can only hope that karma plays a role and she gets shived or raped with a broom handle in prison.
