We recently covered the Facebook saga of University of Wyoming student Meghan Lanker-Simons, who she allegedly posted on an anonymous social media page threat to herself in the guise of an outraged conservative.
It seems that Lanker-Simons has failed to read the liberal memo regarding firearms, however. Katherine Timpf of Campus Reform has these details on another court case involving the agitated activist.
Meg Lanker-Simons, an award winning liberal student activist and talk show host at the University of Wyoming (UW), walked into a radio station in 2005 and threatened her former boss with a Glock 44 .40 caliber handgun, according to court documents.
According to the 2006 affidavit on the firing, she walked into the office of her former employer and pointed the gun at the man who decided to fire her, who reported he was in “fear for his life.”
Immediately after, Albany County Sheriff’s Office deputies detained Lanker-Simons at gunpoint while she was attempting to flee the scene, according to the Laramie Boomerang.
Lanker-Simons “admitted to having (a) gun in (her) purse and pulling it out and waving it around (the) victim,” according to the affidavit.
She pled guilty and received six- years of probation. At the time, Lanker-Simons went by the name Meghan Michelena, according to the Laramie Boomerang.
Meghan Michelena or Lanker-Simons later violated that probation when she was “unsuccessfully discharged” from a treatment center, according to court documents.
Lanker-Simons lawyer appeared in Albany County Circuit Court to enter for her a “not guilty” on charges of interfering with a peace officer last month.
In early April of 2013, police accused Lanker-Simons of posting a rape threat aimed at herself on a “crush” Facebook page. The posting immediately ignited outrage from the college community.
“I want to hate f**k Meg Lanker-Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it,” it read. “I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican bitch,” the post reads, according to a screenshot.
Before the post was removed, Lanker-Simons commented on it and on her own blog, calling it “disgusting, misogynistic, and apparently something the admins of this page think is a perfectly acceptable sentiment.”
The University of Wyoming Police Department later issued a citation to Lanker-Simons for “interference” for “false statements she made to the UW Police Department,” according to a UW statement referred to by Laramie Boomerang Online.
