Nominate the "Everyday Zeroes Award" 2008

[NOTE: 2008 POLLING CLOSED! Revised Post reflects the nominees for the 2008 Awards]

The "Everyday Zeroes Award" is for those common folk (no celebrities, newshounds, or politicos) who have used words or actions against Former Offenders in order to claim their 15 minutes of fame. Instead, the Shiitake Awards will grant them 15 minutes of SHAME.

My inaugural nominee is Tammy Lee Gibson, aka, "Angry Tammy," of Puyallup, Washington.
Upon hearing a Former Offender moved into her neighborhood, crazy Tammy went to his trailer and assaulted him with a baseball bat. Angry Tammy was charged with Second Degree Assault and Felony Harassment, but amazingly received less bail than her victim, who was arrested on "suspicion" of failure to register as a sex offender. Since when was attempted murder less of a crime than failure to register?

Tammy Lee Gibson has mile long criminal history, including pevious assaults and drug charges, yet, despite this, people were calling this nutjob a "hero," and a few people even sent her crack.. er, "bail" money

Worse, this looney toon was bailed out, despite threatening to kill her victim WHILE IN JAIL

Therefore, Angry Tammy Lee Gibson is my inaugural pick for the "Everyday Zeroes Award"

Nominee #2: Noel Watterson, the Aussie who formed a lynch mob to chase a Former Offender out of town. I question whether this old fart is REALLY an invalid, unless you count mentally invalid. Anyways, he ended up being forced to pay $2250.00 in crime compensation, and a suspended sentence. I say lock him up, because he defied a court order

Nominee #3-- Travis Metcalf of Colorado:Metcalf admits he lost control of his emotions.“I was screaming at the top of my lungs at him,” said the 34-year-old Metcalf, a husband and a father of three children, ages 14, 12 and 5. “I ended up getting a ticket for disorderly conduct out of the deal.”And Travis Metcalf should have gotten more, in my opinion, to teach people a hard lesson about vigilante violence. And he isn't learning his lesson:"Despite his June 25 court date, Metcalf said he is keeping the pressure on Larsen by distributing fliers with Larsen’s picture and identifying information, and Metcalf is attempting to organize a 'parent watch' to raise public awareness. "If that wasn't bad enough, he defended his very actions on the blog provided by the local newspaper, not to mention was fiercely defended by cyberterrorist group Absolute Zero United

I nominate Adrian Porter, the nutcase who posted his neighbor's internet page all over the neighborhood and then tried to go after the same guy with a machete!http://http://whec.com/article/stories/S625982.shtml?cat=566
He got stopped by the former offenders' family and a friend of the family. He's in the hospital, but belongs in jail!
