Steven Hunt, arrested for fraud, April 22, 2012
“Never tell a lie, nor take what is not your own, nor sue anybody for slander, assault and battery. Always settle them cases yourself.”
— Andrew Jackson, recalling his mother’s advice
Every decent, law-abiding citizen of Indian River County despises the Hunt family, a vile pack of trashy scum who have done everything possible to bring shame and dishonor upon their community.
And it has now come to my attention that several weeks ago, when the facts of the Kaitlyn Hunt case were just beginning to destroy the dishonest “Free Kate” myth her parents had created with their hateful lies, Steven Hunt conspired with one of their Facebook group administrators to “shut down” this blog:
So the admin “Amber” was attempting to suppress awareness of the site, SupportHonesty.net, which compiles the authentic facts about the Kaitlyn Hunt case. Amber identified me as “the biggest supporter” of SupportHonesty.net. Steven Hunt then called me a “DOUCHE,” and Amber said:
“Yeah well im trying to get his server kicked off
the internet and cause him to go in a media blackout.
thats if anon agrees with our opinion of him.”
In other words, Amber was soliciting members of the computer-hacking conspiracy “Anonymous” — which had originally rallied to the “Free Kate” banner — to help shut down my blog. Amber boasted of her influence within Anonymous. While those online anarchists are crazy, however, most of them are not stupid and, as the facts about Kaitlyn Hunt’s case emerged, support among the “Anons” quickly eroded.
You see the lawless tactics that Kaitlyn Hunt’s lawless supporters endorsed in their effort to suppress the truth. As the entire purpose of the “Free Kate” movement was to apply political pressure to Florida law enforcement — to smear the victim’s family and falsely accuse prosecutors of discriminatory intent — it is possible that these messages might be interpreted as part of a conspiracy to obstruct justice.
But I am just a journalist, not a lawyer.
“Brass-knuckles reputation management” usually fails, because the truth eventually is known, and if Steven Hunt has not researched the “Streisand Effect,” he should be advised that he has been dealing with its consequences for about three months now.
Honest people hate a liar, and when the liar displays himself as a bully who thinks he can intimidate people into silence . . .
Well, how’s that plan working out for ya so far, Steve?
Your criminal pervert daughter is now in jail, charged with a new felony, the evidence of which the judge called “overwhelming.” Kaitlyn’s lawyer seems to be having a nervous breakdown, and people who have long been silent are now speaking out.
As bad as that was, Booking #2012-00001721 has now been exposed as having sought to deprive me of my professional livelihood, and therefore the dreaded War Oath of Clan Cameron has been sworn.

Henceforth, you shall regret having forfeited my mercy. Selah.
UPDATE: Linked by Donald Douglas at American Power — thanks! Some may be surprised (and I’m sure that Steven Hunt will be shocked to learn) that I had hitherto been merciful. But when I learned of Hunt’s purposes to destroy my livelihood and deprive my wife and children of my support, all claim to mercy expired, which is the metaphorical meaning of the Gaelic oath: Steven Hunt, by intending to destroy me, has invited destruction upon himself, and if anyone would claim to be my friend, I implore their assistance in this crisis.
UPDATE II: The important thing to understand is that the “Free Kate” movement began as a campaign of hateful vengeance against the parents of the 14-year-old girl Kaitlyn Hunt molested. This is the only plausible reason why Kaitlyn’s mother, Kelley Hunt Smith named the victim’s parents nine times in her May 17 Facebook post, in order to demonize them and incite harassment against them.
This vindictive purpose was exposed again Wednesday, when Kaitlyn Hunt’s lawyer Julia Graves issued a statement accusing the victim’s family of abuse, knowing this would incite hatred by readers of such publications as South Florida Gay News:
Younger Girl in Kaitlyn Hunt
Case Had ‘Bible Thrown At Her’
The day after Kaitlyn Hunt, 19, had her bond revoked and sent to jail to await trial, her attorney, Julia Graves, released a statement that hit back hard against the prosecution making some outrageous claims.
In the statement she says the younger girl, known as C.S. has been “taken to a church that labels being gay a sin, has the Bible thrown at her, all of her thing[s] in her room boxed up and taken from her, is apparently hit by her parents, and clearly yelled at for lying by her father in the presence of Detective Shepherd at the school in a subsequent interview.” . . .
Again: The younger girl was 14, Kaitlyn was 18 and, even after Kaitlyn was arrested in February, she would not obey a court order to stay away from the minor, secretly arranging for continued “intimate contact” and sending the girl “lewd” photos and videos. Still, the lawyer that Steven Hunt hired to represent his criminal pervert daughter must earn her fee by blaming the younger girl’s parents.
It would be a sin to let people like the Hunts get away with this.
UPDATE III: Headline at the Lonely Conservative:
The word “pedophile” is tendentious, pejorative and inflammatory.
And also quite possibly accurate.
UPDATE IV: Welcome, Instapundit readers!
UPDATE V: In case anyone has forgotten, Steve Hunt lost his police job for trying to intimidate a crime victim.

Please, try to intimidate me some more, Mr. Hunt.
UPDATE VII: Feminist and sex abuse survivor S.J. Reidhead:
There is no sentence strong enough for Kate Hunt to serve that will restore what she has destroyed. . . .
This is what Kate Hunt and her parents have done to her victim. She is literally ruined, inside her soul. The only way she will ever be able to piece together what she once was is through a higher power. I found peace through Christ.
Millstone, neck, some assembly required. Becca J. Lower also sees this as fulfillment of biblical prophecy. Here’s the latest news:
And that’s just my first post of the day. Pete Da Tech Guy says Steve Hunt made “a miscalculation of epic proportions.”
As usual, Pete is correct.
UPDATE VIII: “All is proceeding as I have forseen,” Ed.
UPDATE IX: Regular Right Guy:
One can only imagine the confusion the victim must be experiencing in having to choose between doing the right thing and her affection for the woman who seduced her at one of the most vulnerable times of any child’s life.
