I was alerted that Frederick Leatherman reported that his house was broken into, and someone obtained the access code to their router and accessed his and Crane-Station’s computers. Whomever it was changed the password to his blog and he could no longer log in.
I do not use the word “hack” because that sounds as if someone actually hacked into the server side to get into his computer. That’s difficult to do with Word Press blogs because the hacker would have to actually hack into Word Press servers then find the blog that they want to access.
What I actually think happened is that after breaking into Fred’s house, the perpetrator accessed Fred’s computer. If he was already signed into Word Press, the person was able to change the password on his blog. The most concerning thing however, is that if the person gained access to the administrative side of Leatherman’s blog, that person might have obtained the email addresses of those who submitted comments and might attempt to sign into and change the passwords on Word Press accounts.

Working another agenda when all others have failed.
I don’t generally publicly acknowledge anything that the harassers post about me on other blogs. I do so now because an accusation involves another blogger.
Word Press provides insight for dispute resolution, stating:
“We think the right response to bad or offensive ideas is to speak out against them, not to censor them. Instead of asking us to suspend such a blog, please consider either responding in the blog’s comments or on a blog of your own, to set the record straight.”
This is to set the record straight.
To give some history, it might make sense to roll the clock back. When I decided that justice for Trayvon was important to me, I sought blogs that shared that interest. I looked for blogs that discussed evidence, stayed up-to-date with the release of discovery material, and the pre-trial proceedings. Since the dead cannot defend themselves, I avoided all blogs that denigrate Trayvon. By reading anti-Trayvon blogs, it didn’t take long to recognize the White Supremacists and sovereign citizenship ideologies that they project. That in fact, all if not most of them have stated in some form or another a parroting of what Juror B37 told her now former literary agent; that is, that she found George Zimmerman not guilty “… due to the manner in which he was charged.”
2 Million people signing a petition and millions of Whites, Blacks, Latinos, Native Americans and Asians, young, middle-age and old, coming together protesting the lack of investigation and that Zimmerman had not been arrested, was just too much for those who want to take this country back to the 1800’s.

Citizens Petition The White House, Asking That George Zimmerman Be Investigated for Violating Trayvon Martin’s Civil Rights. By Lonnie Starr
Petition for investigation of George Zimmerman for violations of Trayvon Martin’s Civil Rights
December 04, 2012
Lonnie Starr announces the November 25, 2012, posting of a We The People petition to the White House. Lonnie Starr wrote the petition asking that George Zimmerman be investigated for civil rights violation in his killing of Trayvon Martin.
On February 26, 2012, George Zimmerman called the non-emergency police phone number, reporting that Trayvon Martin looked “suspicious.” The recording of that call was released to the media and provides evidence that George Zimmerman got out of his vehicle to follow Trayvon Martin. About 80 seconds after George Zimmerman ended his non-emergency police call, residents called 911 reporting screams for help and then a gun shot. George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in the heart, killing him. Trayvon Martin was 17 years old, and unarmed. He was staying with his father in the community where he was killed.
“This petition is necessary because George Zimmerman impersonated or took on the authority of law enforcement when he voluntarily exited his vehicle with a loaded gun and followed Trayvon Martin,” says Xena, a blogger with Blackbutterfly7.wordpress.com. “After the dispatcher told Zimmerman that the police did not need him to follow, Zimmerman did not ask for directives. He acted as a deputized authority independently deciding what actions he would take, and his actions resulted in killing an unarmed, 17 year old. After shooting Trayvon in the heart, Zimmerman frisked Trayvon’s body, again, doing acts of deputized law enforcement.”
George Zimmerman has not been charged with committing a federal hate-crime. “His supporters seem to think that is exactly what Zimmerman did,” says Xena. “There are several websites filled with racially bigoted comments that applaud George Zimmerman’s actions while denigrating the African American race.”
“This petition is unique and creative. In this way, the petition is a very important social document and perhaps a sign of the times, “says Malisha, another internet blogger. “It says that our society wants a way to criticize the act and to say that it violates their standards.”
Lonnie Starr, Xena, and Malisha, met on Frederick Leatherman’s Law Blog where Leatherman, a former death penalty and felony criminal-defense attorney in state and federal courts, writes on law and legal procedure.
The petition can be read and signed at http://wh.gov/IXcy.
