How stupid can you really get?
The University of Wyoming Police Department issued a citation Monday afternoon in Albany County Circuit Court for Meg Lanker-Simons, a woman allegedly threatened last week in a social media post authorities now contend was a hoax.
The citation is for interference, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment up to a year and a fine up to $1,000.
“Subject admitted to making a controversial post on UW Crushes webpage and then lied about not doing it,” according to the citation.
She is scheduled to appear at 9 a.m. May 13 in Circuit Court.
The post was made to the UW Crushes page April 24 on Facebook and described Lanker-Simons as “that chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it.”
The post also referenced a graphic, sexual act against Lanker-Simons.
“One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican (expletive),” the post read.
The post created a stir on social media and at the university, with school officials issuing statements denouncing the post against Lanker-Simons and campus police opening an investigation.
Lanker-Simons could not be reached for comment.
UW released a statement Tuesday afternoon regarding the citation.
“This episode has sparked an important discussion reaffirming that the UW community has no tolerance for sexual violence or violence of any type,” UW spokesman Chad Baldwin said. “The fact that the Facebook post apparently was a fabrication does not change the necessity for continued vigilance in reassuring that we have a campus where everyone feels safe.
I will not make snide remarks about her weight, like I have seen on twitter about her. As I am quite the hefty man myself. Those of you who have, will rot in the devil’s hell, I assure you of that. I just do not understand what this stupid woman was trying to accomplish. I mean, did she not know that the police would have the ability to see who posted that? Has this brain-dead feminist-Nazi ever heard of IP addresses before? I mean, to call this dumb broad anything remotely related to Nazism is an insult to Adolf Hitler himself! I mean, Adolf might have been evil, but at least he was not this stupid!
You know, I have always believed that this new generation of kids coming up today, lack a good deal of common sense. This here, proves that well beyond reasonable doubt. I am 40 years old by the way, going on 41 in June; I can say stuff like that — you’re welcome.
