and the republication of Julie Amero: Heroes and Villains, in which Karoli analyzes the character of Norwich Police Detective Mark Lounsbury. On Feb. 1, Karoli published Julie Amero is INNOCENT. Period.
Julie Amero was a victim of malware and sloppy network administration.
She doesn’t have her teaching license and she doesn’t have her good name restored. She is, however, at least free of the spectre of jail hanging over her head, which I suppose is something, at least.
I really shouldn’t have to write this. AGAIN. But it seems that Detective Lounsbury is dissatisfied with the outcome of the case. For Det. Mark Lounsbury, this is a zero-sum game. Just like recently-disgraced Gov. Blagojevich, Detective Lounsbury continues to advocate for Julie Amero’s guilt in the public eye, using whatever tools are at his disposal.Yesterday, Karoli published Cyberbullying Julie Amero
What was striking to me about the interview with Lounsbury was how smoothly he was able to craft a reason for writing what he has. Read through the blog post — it drips with sarcasm, defensiveness, and a real need to trash Amero for his own self-aggrandizement. Yet, when he is in front of the camera, he appears calm, smooth, perfectly reasonable.
Have you ever known someone like this? Someone who seethes with anger and whose intensity is nearly overwhelming until they are in public? In the public persona, they appear calm, cool, and perfectly collected, sending the message that everyone around them overreacts.
