First things first: This editor is the one who first reported on the Covington Catholic High School incident after seeing the initial videos and jumped to the wrong conclusion, and for that I apologize to our readers and to the students of Covington Catholic.

That said, Twitchy’s post warned that people were already posting pictures of individual kids and demanding their names; Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald sure kept himself off the tentacle porn sites Saturday by grabbing all the still frames he could from the initial video and posting all of the faces to his Twitter feed. And he wasn’t the only one.

And then there were the threats, many of which we’ve covered here. Breitbart News’ Allum Bokhari is working on a piece about #VerifiedBullies — those blue-checks on Twitter who literally get away with doxxing kids and threatening lives.

As Twitchy reported, verified account @HouseShoes tweeted, “I want you to fire on any of these red hat bitches when you see them. On sight.” That tweet’s gone now, but it stood for quite a while considering its content. And blue-check producer Jack Morrissey posted a graphic of #MAGA kids going screaming head-first into the wood chipper.

We know that Twitter says a blue-check isn’t an endorsement, but they have taken away a blue-check (from Louis Farrakhan) as punishment, so it does carry some weight. So why are so many liberal blue-checks getting away with posting death wishes?

Blue-check Reza Aslan seemed upset that he was reported because of his tweet about the Covington student’s “punchable face.”

We write a lot about Hollywood celebrities who are #VerifiedBullies … any chance of any of them ever being suspended?
