I received an email while I was out directing me to this link at Kerodin's site, titled "Much fuck you in your future." Unfortunately, by the time I got home the post had been taken down by Kerodin (or some adult supervision with access to his website) and said merely "Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist."
The fellow who sent me the link commented:
His latest, he has a solution to all this! He is going to hunt down all his critics and dare them to repeat what they type and then assault them and crowd-broadcast beating the shit out of them, which is more or less a potential death threat, especially in Mike's case.This is very useful information: It shows how Kerodin's III community and dream "republic" will tolerate dissent, that is, the same way the brownshirts did, and it also shows his total incompetence as both a trainer and a tactician--there is not a credible self defense trainer in the country who teaches students to go looking for physical fights, rather, they teach the exact opposite. And who that is sane teaches to pre-announce targets? Anyone following Kerodin needs to look at the example he sets and ask themselves if they would follow such a lunatic into battle.It's also legally very stupid, as he says he wants to try to petition to get his gun rights back. Why would anyone who is honest about that create such a public record that any judge would look at and say "No way"?The guy is psychotic. He is destroying himself. Every time he gets prodded to go on a rant it becomes obvious to everyone with a brain and further makes those still loyal to him look like the idiots they are.Question: How long did his parole last? Is it still active? Because I would think this would really f-ck him up if whoever monitors him knew he was making thinly-veiled criminal threats.
Later, he emailed that the post had been taken down.
Post existed, cannot retrieve, essentially he was saying he has a solution to this and that is before he goes to Idaho he will go seek you out and Militialaw and a few others and invite you to repeat to him in person what you say over the internet and then either you will beat him up or he will beat you up.Militialaw noticed it too, and says K is in violation of federal stalking statutes: http://militialaw.com/2013/10/30/kerodin-stalking/
Here is what MilitiaLaw, an attorney, had to say:
Kerodin and the Federal Stalking StatuteAnd here I thought he’d forgotten all about me…Convicted extortionist Christian Kerodin, has demanded a face-to-face meeting with me and a bunch of others who he believes “are all talk.”These meetings, according to Kerodin, are necessary as he wants to prove a theory:Now, my contention is that the man would only speak to me one time in the tone he brings to the blogs if we were face-to-face. He would either stop using the tone, he would beat me into unconsciousness, or I would make it impossible for him to continue.While he is trying his best to sound tough, all he is doing is reinforcing the fact he can’t prove any of the claims I’ve raised.But his threat does raise an interesting ancillary point.If Kerodin does manage to go to Alabama, Texas, or Florida as he is promising, it appears he can be arrested under the federal anti-stalking law codified at 18 U.S.C section 2261A(a); interstate travel + intent to injure/intimidate + causing target reasonable fear = Kerodin’s promised trip.But Kerodin seems to have no fear of being prosecuted under this or any other statute.Ask yourself why that is.
Rather reckless behavior for an ex-con indeed. One would almost believe that someone has issued him a federal hunting license for yours truly and anyone else who crosses him, along with a Get Out of Jail Free Card.
LATER: A reader sends -- "Hey Mike, Just in case you didn't know this already, and are interested, Kerodin's latest meltdown can for now still be seen here (in Google Cache). Don't know how long that will last."
