I have borrowed a friend's account for one final post: David Josephssen is dead. He was hanged about an hour ago from Diagon's famous white oak tree in the park at the corner of Diagon Alley and Lonesome Valley Road.
Technically, this was not a lynching. It was performed in daylight by Sheriff Grayson and his deputies as instructed by an Emergency Execution Order from Judge Bean.
I think the judge may have been tipped off by someone, because less than half an hour after the hanging, two US Marshals showed up with a Writ of habeas corpus and a Stay of Execution. In what passes for wit around here, they were told that "habeas corpse beats habeas corpus." Sheriff Grayson told them they were welcome to cut down the body and take it with them, to save him the trouble of arranging a burial, which they did.
Whatever he did on the Internet, David certainly didn't deserve this. May his soul rest in peace.
