Ramos his sweet feed because there wasn’t really a week that went by that someone wasn’t targeted with some kind of angry tweet sometimes those tweets were no more vicious than anything else you might read on the internet you know who’s calling someone fat or calling them a slob but at some point it kind of turned it in and those tweets became more targeted and more violin things like I wish you’d stop breathing or threatening to send certain people to journalistic hell that was a theme he had it was at that point that I think people sit up and took notice because these tweets were in just calling names anymore they were calling out specific people talking about acts of violence did you fear for your safety I think everyone at one point or another thought that mr. Ramos was was not balanced and and so and they consider themselves at at least at risk I didn’t show up in his Twitter feed as much as as others so I don’t think I was as scared as any other people work I do recall one instance where I used to serve in the Army and so at one point one of his tweets referred to me as sergeant Shirley and that spoke to me because I realized you know he was digging into my past you haven’t done some research now I understand that you knew some of the people who were killed this week after a couple of days now after the immediate incident what will you remember about those those members of the Capital Gazette staff so I should correct that because I actually didn’t specifically any of the victims obviously a horrible tragedy and I have very fond memories of working with the Gazette and so I know that the caliber of people that work there and that’s what I’ll always remember about about my representation and my time all right it’s actually thank you so much for being with us this morning thanks for having me
