Snohomish Responds

The city of Snohomish and the Snohomish School District have responded to the accusations of the Seattle PI article mentioned in the previous post by preparing an OP-Ed to be submitted to the PI, (which has been posted on their web site [PDF], and e-mailed to their distribution list.) It's also posted on the City of Snohomish web site here.

In other news, a petition has been put up and linked to Digg and other sites. As of this writing it has 5689 signatures (I just signed it), most bashing the citizens of Snohomish, with a few actively supporting the injured student, but most comments of dubious character.

This story has grown throughout the MSM and the Blogosphere.  I found a lik to the Wall Street Journal and a Blog in Ontario has given it good coverage or both sides of the issue (actually they are more sympathetic to us poor Snohomians).

It remains to be seen whether the PI will publish the OpEd.

Stay tuned.

    I didn't think that the Brett Karch, Snohomish cannon story rang true from the beginning. Luckily, Scott North from the Herald has been digging into the true story behind the incident. Turns out Brett Karch and his mother have a long criminal history involving the person making the supposed threatening phone calls. And neither Brett nor his mother ever mentioned this fact when they were talking about what a sports crazed hick town Snohomish is. Please read his latest article entitled:
    "Threats seem to have little to do with cannon" and found here:
