From Tim Farley’s History of Mabus:
“Phil Plait gave a report to a sheriff by telephone. Michael Shermer told me he obtained a restraining order to ensure Mabus would stay clear of him. Canadian skeptic Steve Thoms and blogger Greg Laden also filed reports. There are no doubt others.
On February 10, 2011 I was finally able to get a copy of my report from yet another Atlanta Police office across town. I quickly took it to a local print shop and faxed it to the Montreal Police.
And nothing happened. For me or for anyone else.”
PZ Myers filed a complaint (Time to Institutionalize Dennis Markuze).
After many complaints during which the police did nothing, an e-mail petition finally got the Montreal Police off their duffs.
Kyle VanderBeek, a skeptic who works for change.org in San Francisco. Kyle saw those tweets with the emails in them, and knew he had a potential tool right at his fingertips. He created a petition titled “Montreal Police: Take “Mabus” death threats seriously” and configured it to send responses directly to the SPVM public email addres.”
While I’m waiting to hear the results of the 30-day psychiatric evaluation of Dennis Markuze, AKA David Mabus, to see if he’s too crazy to stand trial, here is a list of Dennis Markuze summaries:
“Mabus” isn’t the only Crazy Canadian by any means.
And now I’m waiting to hear about Makuze’s next appearance in court.
