FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION
The escalating insanity has apparently reached new heights. Just when Aaron Walker achieved a court victory — this:
Readers will excuse the intensity of my reaction, but I simply cannot imagine that any criminal would be so stupidly overconfident to attempt such a thing, at a time when there is so much public attention on the subject. It boggles the mind.
UPDATE: Patterico reports:
It happened around 6 p.m. Eastern. I briefly talked with one of the police officers at the scene, who confirmed that someone had called saying he had shot his wife, and sent officers to Aaron’s address.
I just got off the phone with Aaron and he and his wife are a little shaken up but OK. The officers had machine guns but did not point them at Aaron. They were quickly able to determine it was a hoax.
More reaction at Twitchy. Memo to The Washington Post: This is now what they call “local news.” Get on it.
UPDATE II: Welcome, Instapundit readers! Perhaps now readers understand why I’ve spent the past five weeks at an Undisclosed Location.
UPDATE III: Cops with M-4 automatics knocked on the door. Aaron said to the cops, “Let me guess, someone claimed I shot my wife…?”
