I just received an email from someone claiming to be the Court TV poster ranger75. Here is what they said:
I understand blogging is part of everyday life with concerns to certain situations. You do nice detective work I guess I can say. This is ranger75 from courtv discussion boards. I ask out of sincere respect for my family that you remove your blog about my recent comments fom your site. I no longer post about my opinions, verdict or the trial on the boards as I explained earlier today. I went out of bounds and made my opinions and self public. Not the best thing to do. I again ask that you please remove the blog so that whatever privacy that my family and I have, remains.
Are you verifying to me that you are Rachelle Short's brother-in-law? This information became public the minute it was posted on the Court TV message boards. I did not violate or reveal any confidences; I just gathered information that was out there. "ranger75" was the one who made the decision to share their thoughts on a public forum. Maybe not the best decision, but definitely their decision.
