This time it’s the social media site medium dot com. Stacy had been posting there since the middle of 2016, but he and several other right and libertarian writers were thrown of that platform today.
Of course, Stacy still has his own blog, and you can read his comments about Medium there.
SWATting has always been a foolishly dangerous prank. Indeed, there have been times when it appears to have been used as an attempt to kill or seriously injure a targeted person. Last week, what is alleged to be a SWATting prank gone wrong killed a man in Wichita. The LAPD have a suspect in custody.
I wasn’t SWATted, but I did receive a threat that was taken seriously by law enforcement. Stacy McCain was SWATted back in 2013 and has some comments here.
Yesterday afternoon, I got a phone call from my good friend and occasional co-defendant Stacy McCain. He invited me out to an undisclosed location for a fireworks display that he was putting together. It turned out to be an impressive show, in large part because of Stacy’s expertise in the use of timed fusing to program the fireworks.Here are a few photos from the display—
A good time was had by all, and no Tovex was used in any of the fireworks.
UPDATE—Be sure to scroll down through the comment section for the video.
All that is necessary to discredit Bill Schmalfeldt is to quote Bill Schmalfedt.
