    I'm under the impression all public libraries require a card which in order to obtain you must apply and show a State ID. So they would be a record of the user logging in and the browser would be searchable to LE/FBI.

    Our public library doesn’t require you to sign on or anything. No library card or ID needed, you just pick an empty seat at the computer stations. I’m sure they aren’t all like that though. We actually used to have a sign in requirement but not anymore. The rational behind removing those requirements is that we have a large population of people who are unhoused, and this gives them access to a computer to apply for various resources and apply for jobs.

    The dark themes permeating Brian Laundrie’s digital footprint

    While it’s unknown whether BL was on the autism spectrum, he and Gabby told officers attending a domestic disturbance in Utah on August 12 they were suffering from a mental health breakdown.

    According to a 911 call, he hit and slapped his girlfriend in Moab, Utah, on 12 August.

    When spoken to by police, she claimed to have instigated the fight and said she had been suffering from anxiety. Officer Daniel Robbins said the couple appeared to have been going through a “mental health crisis”, according to a police incident report.

    BL twice references death or dying when posting about his relationship with Gabby.

    3 July - “My biggest fear is that one day I’ll wake up and it will have all been a dream, because that is what every second has felt like since the moment we found each other. Till death do us part or until I wake up, I’m so happy the answer was yes, Love you hunny.”

    To semi-quote Gabby, "Wasnt_Me never goes outside!" I have never slept in a tent. NEVER slept outside of walls, and I never want to. I can't remember if I ever slept in a car overnight. I don't think so.

    ETA: feeds my theory that BL had said or done something to let GP’s parents that he had done something to her. Or NPPD just didn’t have the skills or resources to adequately process. If that was case, You would think think the would have gone to state LE first, tho. IDK. MOO

    We know what he did. But there are no criminal charges related to that...yet, beyond the debit card usage.

    Yep. Virtually all of the reporting regarding the whole envelope of this matter has been, IMO, lousy... filled with inferences and assumptions of convenience to "get some content - any content - published. True journalism is - for the most part - dead. And I rarely see any meaningful "investigative" journalism,. I wouldn't bet much of anything on accurate reporting in this matter.

    If BL had recently gotten a passport, the FBI would not have spent a week looking for him in a swamp. MOO

    Many of us believe that he was gone and out of the area before the parents of Gabby even realized she was missing. They didn’t have a chance to surveil him because he was out of town (but the cops were misled by his parents to believe he was at home) before he was known to be someone needing watching. MOO

    Absolutely, and with hindsight and the benefit of more extensive and up-to-date DV training LE might have done differently, and better. It's also the case that the responding officers were acting in the moment and did not have the benefit of a detailed history of GP and BL, the statements of esteemed forensic psychologists/ psychiatrists/ profilers and longtime acquaintances of the couple, and multiple frame-by-frame dissections of their bodycam video to rely on when making their determinations.

    I think there's a long, ugly list of things to hold LE to account for, but I'm not sure that this incident is the clearest example of LE malfeasance. Would some version of this video be useful in DV training going forward? Certainly. But I'm not sure that these officers should be held responsible, even in the court of public opinion, for BL's heinous actions. FWIW, no one in either extended family seems to have anticipated that BL might go on to abuse and/or murder GP -- and they had years of contact and communication to make those determinations. Sometimes, you just can't tell. And sometimes you think you can tell but can't act on what you suspect.

    IMO.

    its a fun time! I enjoy taking my kiddo and my mom always comes with us.

    I sure hope so. I truly want there to be justice for Gabby, and I know we can all agree that we want that for her.

    fingers crossed that he’s found and alive, he doesn’t deserve the easy way out jmo.

    And currently for Canada you need a negative COVID test w/in 72 hours of crossing. Makes it more difficult for sure. Mexico however does not have testing requirement.

    Here is our latest. Noreen Gibbons –a close family friend of the Petito’s– says Gabby and Brian were planning to end their trip with her in Portland. She was like a grandma to Gabby. “I don’t know if I want him dead or if I want him alive to face the consequences," she says now.

    The tweet includes a video with Noreen Gibbons and also includes the police surrounding the Laundrie home after a report of gunshots being heard, but there was no evidence of this.

  19. Most public libraries allow access to computers by non card holders. They will give you a temporary passcode, usually with a time limit on use. I have accessed the internet at public libraries where I don't have a card because I live elsewhere.

    If evidence was found, the challenge would be linking the code to a specific user since the library will have no personally identifying info on record due to privacy laws. Library use records can be obtained by LE. However, once again due to privacy laws and a commitment to upholding them as promulgated by the American Library Association (backed by the U.S. Constitution), it is very unusual but not unprecedented to release any user information without a legal document demanding it.

    Having obtained a master's in library science and work experience in county library systems, I am familiar with the usual privacy protections they have in place.
    IMO

    Sadly, it does appear to be a missed opportunity to help Gabby, but wasn't helping herself. She was instead blaming herself. In one moment she explained that she kept apologizing to him for her own behavior.

    What a circle of abuse she seemed to be trapped in. Blaming herself, apologizing to him, making excuses why she was in a bad mood, minimizing the entire situation. Just a terrible place to be.

    She probably didn't even know she was trapped, rather than voluntarily on a vanlife adventure, he was working her psychologically, long before that trip began, twisting her mind up.
