They might have shared it for novelty value, and they might bother to go pick the guy up if someone tells them precisely where he is, (though i wouldn't put money on it).

Can you source the claim that the department said he was injured? So far as i know The gateway pundit made up the orbital fractures injury, before the right wing blogs picked it up, leading to faux news running with it. I hadn't seen it coming from the department at all, it was pure disinfo
When i was a time warner subscriber 5 years ago, this was already their policy, i got two nastygrams before proxying up, and both times i found out when they hijacked my browser to the "you've been a bad boy" page.
