I am an avid reader of Mark Cuban’s blog Blog Maverick and ran across an article today titled simply Genarlow Wilson.
I, like many of you have probably never before heard this name, but it’s about time you did know this young man.
Genarlow Wilson is a young man from Douglasville, GA which is just outside Atlanta. Genarlow was a well behaved young man with a very promising future, but that was all taken away by the state of Georgia in one swift day.
Click here to read the ESPN article about this Outrageous Injustice.
Update: Apparently now some more national news stations are now covering this story. Here is a link to CNN video story of the Genarlow Wilson Case.
Here is another video from ABC News where Genarlow explains why he didn’t take the plea bargain.
Please post any other video you find or articles relating to the case in the comments section.
Once you’re done reading the article on ESPN, please come back here and help this young man get set free.
ATTENTION ALL BLOGGERS and website owners!
I’ve been thinking about this poor guy all day now and since most people aren’t in a position to do much as far as money or as far as media attention like Mark Cuban, I think there is something we all can do that is actually quite powerful.
Bloggers and site owners have the power of the net and information at their fingertips. What’s great and sometimes not so great is we have the ability to sway opinion and alter search results.
What I propose is to “google bomb” the espn article to the top of google for the search term “Georgia”.
If we all write a post relating to the injustice of this and then post a link to the ESPN article with the anchor text “Georgia” (without the quotations of course) it won’t take but a few days for it to be #1 on Google for the search term Georgia.
This is extremely powerful and does give us all a way to help this young man. I also can’t imagine the State of Georgia will be very happy to know that the espn article is #1 when anyone searches google for info on their state. We can then all remove the links once someone with a sane mind turns around this insane sentence.
This actually works quite well to get a point across. It’s been done many times before and has worked. I actually helped do it for another search term when I was in the poker industry. Search google for “corrupt senator” (without quotes) and you’ll notice that Bill Frist’s wikipedia page is #1. This took poker affiliates all of about 2 days to accomplish.
So let’s use our power to get out the word about this and help this young man.
As we all know… the only time government will change is when the masses come together. So let’s come together.
