William Leon Lane a.k.a. "Bit Bit" Called An Innocent Man Victimized By A "Hurrendous Ackuasion"
Mug shot, therefore in public domain, blog post by John Hoff
William Leon Lane, a.k.a. "Bit Bit" was briefly mentioned on this blog in a kind of "round up" blog post I wrote about various criminal indictments, click here for that blog post. A couple of months ago, somebody sent me an email defending "Bit Bit" and taking me to task for what I wrote.
It's only fair that I would print this substantive, detailed defense of the supposedly good character of William Leon Lane, so here is that email, unedited, exactly as I received it...
Aldelila Sadd to John Hoff
hello Mr. Hoff my name is Ellie and I wanna discuss with u about something u had posted a column on January 3rd 2010 about William Leon Lane aka Bit Bit and Because of your column a lot of people jumped on his case and his against him. with out knowing the facts and anything about him. I know for a fact that he did not do this and u should really recap the event and re post the story because william is a great man fiancee son brother and father because of ur article and other falsiflying gossip he is being charged with a hurrendous ackuasion. you helped take him away from his family and loved ones. instead of posted gossip about him u should really be looking for the one who did this. and u need to look at the facts which is public information and no that no evidence points to william. because of the media and gossip it has made him guilty. I believe that is called trail by media. And u played apart as well. but the FACTS say that he is innocent. But i guess media is stronger then the facts. your input on this e mail will be greatly appreciated. And your not the only one gettin this e mail all the all the media is, and there will be more to come. the medias ackuaisons are untrue and this is unjust. please feel free to respond
My response as follows:
I did nothing but print a link to the criminal complaint with a brief commentary. I didn't make anything happen, that was all the justice system working completely on its own, but the best of luck to the justice system.
Until today, there has been no other mention of William Leon Lane, a.k.a. "Bit Bit," on my blog. In fact, until today I never even assigned him a metatag to make it easier for search engines to find my info about William Leon Lane.
I am printing your ridiculous email as a public example of the shrill, insane and poorly written b.s. I have to put up with because I publish truthful information about the pressing issues in my neighborhood.
