John Cohen Colby Needs Your Permission to Stalk and Harass You


At least that’s what the FBI told him. John has been stalking and harassing some guy he doesn’t know. Apparently, he thinks this guy and his girlfriend have been stalking him, his sister, and his dead mother (who isn’t complaining because she’s apparently dead).

Apparently self proclaimed FOIA expert John Cohen Colby wasn’t aware that people are entitled to their privacy, and the FBI kind of recognizes that right. You know, that same right he’s complaining to them about, they take that privacy stuff seriously.

Here’s what the FBI has to say about stalker assholes like John Colby and his FOIA requests he spams to anyone and everyone:

Public Interest Disclosure. If you seek disclosure of any existing records on this basis, you must demonstrate that the public interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests. In this regard, you must show that the public interest sought is a significant one, and that the requested information is likely to advance that interest.

Oh wait, you mean baseless personal vendettas against strangers don’t fit the bill?

I wonder how many people at the FBI got a laugh out of John’s request?
