The Rumours of His Death have Been Unfortunately Exaggerated
FINAL UPDATE: As I’ve stated all along, everything about Michael Crook is a hoax. Now the deranged lunatic has ‘fessed up‘. I’ve had enough of his tired, pathetic act. This will be the last post or update on Mr. Crook (unless he somehow really does meet up with an unfortunate and sudden ending).
On May 11th, I posted that a Web site run by Michael Crook (foresakethetroops.com) appeared to be a sick hoax. Oh, that doesn’t mean that Michael Crook isn’t a vile piece of shit, it just means that his site was a publicity stunt and apparent money-grab.
Well, it looks like he’s trying to show his “support” for our troops one last time (in that special way that only the unhinged-left and Al Qaeda know how to show their support for our troops) before his site is pulled by his Internet Provider.
Today, his site announced that two members of the military who disagreed with his opinions had beaten Mr. Crook to death.
First of all: It’s not true. It’s another hoax and another attempt to defame the brave men and women of the US Military. According to the ArmyTimes, the Onondaga County Sheriffâ€™s Office in Syracuse does not have any reports or information on the death of Mr. Cook.
Additionally, Mr. Crook’s site claimed that the two attackers were â€œtaken into police custody”. The Sheriffâ€™s Office in Syracuse also told Army Times Tuesday that they have no record or knowledge of any such attack in the region.
So, as much as some of you were hoping that this was not a rumour, it is.
Oh, and for posterity’s sake, or in case you never got to see what all the fuss was about — here’s the google cache of foresakethetroops.com, before its gone forever.
UPDATE: MudvilleGazette and his readers were also quick to call bullshit on the rumours of Cook’s demise.
UPDATE II: One of my readers, Preston, commented (for those of you who don’t read the comments section) that I keep claiming that Crook is a liberal. Preston points out accurately that Crook is a member of an organization that preserves the rights of White men and women—a White Supremacy group. To his credit, Preston opines: “Sorry, heâ€™s not one of ours [the Left].” Perhaps not…but I’ll bet my nickels to your dimes that he’s not a conservative Republican, either.
UPDATE III: MedicGirl posed this question in the comments at Damnum Absque Injuria:
Faking your own death and blaming it on 2 people is a crime of some sort right? He should at least be charged with impeding police procedure or something of the sort because the police department has had to handle all of the inquiries.
