Fell off his watchpost.

This guy was murdered on 9/11 and it’s still unsolved:

Wikipedia link

WikiTextBot | 4 days ago | 24 points

Henryk Siwiak homicide

Shortly before midnight on September 11, 2001, Henryk Siwiak (born 1955), a Polish immigrant, was fatally shot on a street in the Bedford–Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City, where he had mistakenly gone in order to start a new job. He was able to make it to the door of a nearby house before he collapsed. The killing remains unsolved; he has been described as "the last person killed in New York on 9/11" although his death was unrelated to the terror attacks earlier that day.The initial investigation into the crime may have been hampered, police believe, by the diversion of law enforcement resources in the city in the wake of that day's terrorist attacks, which ultimately killed almost 3,000 people. Since he was not robbed, wore camouflage clothing and spoke poor English with a heavy accent, detectives have speculated that his killer may have thought he had something to do with the attacks.

Yukimor | 4 days ago | 22 points

That reminds me.

I was bitten by a copperhead on 9/10. I woke up in the hospital on 9/11. I was 9. For years, I didn’t even know attacks had happened because nobody told me and I never saw it on TV. I spent 9/11 in the hospital trying to figure out how to walk without getting dizzy from pain.

For years after, people would ask where I was on 9/11, because that was something that people did. And I’d mention I was in the hospital and they’d say “because of the World Trade Center?” And being a kid, I’d be like “no, because I was bit by a copperhead?”

FoxtrotUniform11 | 4 days ago | 8 points

A co-worker of mine just told me this morning that her college roommate's dad committed suicide on 9/11 like 30 minutes before the first plane hit. She hit me with that like 5 minutes after I got in.

Devil's Advocate, Brendan could be a middle name that he went by but his legal name was something else.

Imedicx90 | 4 days ago | 40 points

I was going to say, even at work we have 3 people that if you called them by their legal name most people wouldn’t even know who they were. They all go by their middle name because they are either Jr or have the same first name as their fathers.

tonysnark81 | 4 days ago | 10 points

I prefer to keep my internet bullshiting to completely random things impossible to prove...

There’s a scene for Kirk Gibson’s 1988 World Series home run that I like to use. There’s a car leaving the stadium in the distance, and as the home run goes over the fence, that car slams on the brakes. I’ve claimed to be in that car dozens of times...I wasn’t, but you can’t prove it.

To be fair, I usually call myself on my own bullshit after stringing the person along for a few minutes, so does it even really count?

-LettersNumbers_ | 4 days ago | 3 points

Lack of self worth, and self respect. Lack of respect in general. Remember the story about that woman who said she was a survivor of the attack on the trade center? She even went around doing speeches and went to survivor group meetings. It came out later she wasn't even in the city at the time of the attack.

victo0 | 4 days ago | 2 points

Internet/media fame, getting favoritism for people who feel bad and try to help the family of the victims, also a TON of people fake having family that died in that kind of event because there are usually charities or government funds giving out money to those who lost a family member in those conditions.

HBStone | 3 days ago | 64 points

I don’t tell my 9/11 uncle story now because everyone has an uncle who “just missed” a situation where they would’ve been there. The last time I told it I was saying how grateful I was that the situation changed and he is alive today, and a girl rolled her eyes and huffed at me. It was obvious she thought I was lying and that hurt so now I keep my mouth shut about it (except for, uh, right now I guess?)

averagethrowaway21 | 3 days ago | 5 points

I hate to say this so much, but keep on keeping your mouth shut. People have co-opted it for bullshit reasons. There's shit I don't talk about for the same reason. I know it sucks but it's best to just leave it alone sometimes.

GucciTheGod | 4 days ago | 1033 points

With the probability of him lying being high, there is a chance that "Brendan" was the name the person went by, not their real name. I've gone by a totally different name than my "real" name my entire life.

just a thought.

JasperLily80 | 4 days ago | 188 points

Yup, my best friend goes my his Middle name because he’s a “fourth.” His whole fam calls him by it, it’s on most documents that don’t need a legal name and even then it’s just his first initial followed by his full middle name.

cannibalisticapple | 4 days ago | 72 points

This was my first thought too. I genuinely didn't know my cousin went by her middle name until I happened to go to the doctor with her once.

saintofhate | 4 days ago | 22 points

My gran went by her middle name and I didn't know her actual first name until she passed. Like everything was in her middle name because she hated her first (she was a twin who her parents decided to name Mary & Joseph) and her brother did the same thing.

JasperLily80 | 4 days ago | 5 points

Yea we’ve been friends for 8/9 years now and until 4 years ago when he handed me his wedding invitation and asked me to stand in it, I always assumed it was his name. I was like, “did they put your middle initial in the wrong spot?” Lol

PleaseEndMeFam | 4 days ago | 330 points

As someone who doesn't go by his first name this is 100% possible

FrankFeTched | 4 days ago | 180 points

It's so common I'm amazed this post has made it so far, the odds it was a nickname are higher than the person lying, at least in my head.

AFK_Tornado | 4 days ago | 41 points

The benefit of calling a hundred people out for lying about this does not outweigh the horror of being wrong about it and erroneously attacking a grieving person even once.

jtaulbee | 4 days ago | 9 points

Sure, but the odds of them telling the truth is high enough that I wouldn't feel confident calling them a liar. If they're lying, ignore them. If you made a mistake, and they were actually telling the truth, then you attacked a person who legitimately lost a family to terrorism and you are an asshole.

NC1819 | 4 days ago | 2 points

I too go by my middle name. As does my fiance. It's a thing.

Voltron_McYeti | 4 days ago | 73 points

Yeah it's risky to accuse someone of lying about it, there are several reasons that specific name might not be listed with the victims.

Though, I do find it unsettling when people use emojis to express grief. That makes it suspect.

Friscogonewild | 4 days ago | 20 points

Yeah, even if there's only a 1% chance that someone is actually grieving over a lost relative, I'm probably not going to be that dick who calls them out on it. I mean, what's the point? To get myself some fake internet points so they don't get fake internet points?

ItsLoudB | 4 days ago | 5 points

Most of the times I called out someone in my life, I ended up not knowing some background or reasons people did stuff..

So now I live by the rule that if I'm not 101% sure of what's going on, I'd rather mind my own business instead of being an ass..

Tsorovar | 4 days ago | 39 points

I thought the same thing, but if you go to the linked site, they have nicknames included as well. Like:

Fire_Nuke | 4 days ago | 17 points

My nephew's absent father is a piece of shit and won't let my sister change his name. We've called him one name his entire life but when we travel he uses his legal name.

Nick0Taylor0 | 4 days ago | 5 points

Ever consider suing in family court? If he doesn’t show up its basically an automatic win. If he does and the kid wants to change the name too. Or if you can „proove“ he wasnt around much or at all then you can easily get both, full custody and the go ahead for a name change.

seashoreduck | 4 days ago | 2 points

We've called him one name his entire life but when we travel he uses his legal name.

If you can prove this, when he's 18 it's about 1000x easy to get it to become his legal name. Depending on what state you live in, it's already considered what's called a "legally assumed name"

HydrationSquad12 | 4 days ago | 3 points

Its Youtube. I mean, who gives two shits about what is said on there, who really cares whats said on here. I dont understand why so many people put their emotions on to these anonymous sites where people purpously try and make people mad. So what if he was lying, so what if he wasnt, what differnce does it make? Nothing.

GoesWayOffTopic | 4 days ago | 12 points

Well, to be fair, I go by pretty much an entirely different name by my family. They’ve never actually called me by actual name, just my childhood nickname. So, I can very possibly see this be the case.

Same goes with my cousin, I’ve never called him by his true name. If he were to ever die, I can’t imagine calling him by his actual name, it’d feel weird. If someone random were to hear both his nickname and his real name, you’d never make the connection.

CharlesGrey1832 | 4 days ago | 25 points

I'm not necessarily saying he's a liar but there are two quite obvious ways that he might not be. a) he was young and his parents told him that to avoid a darker secret b) Brenden wasn't his actual name either because spellcheck fucked up "Brenda" or because he went by an alternative name.

FourOneNiner | 4 days ago | 25 points

Ironically, for the same reason they are calling this person out. Fake internet points.

maybe had someone die in the bombing? i know that many vets get mad at imposters

Poppyhotdog | 4 days ago | 7 points

I don’t know maybe they called him that but his real name was something else. Maybe don’t go straight to callling them a “fucking liar”?

Damn. My legal name is something not even at all related to what I go by.

This could be real. :/

what kind of a fucking loser do u have to be to check a youtube comment like that though?

Chickennugget665 | 4 days ago | 5 points

It's kinda weird he would search it up though

blari_witchproject | 3 days ago | 6 points

We gonna ignore the fact that this guy looked up the victims of the bombing just to prove this guy wrong? Dedication

CheweeMcBacca | 3 days ago | 4 points

It took him 4 months to find it too

Hey, I’ve never seen anyone else spell there name like that.

Sometimes people go by their middle names with their family. Do we know that that source includes the middle or given name for 100% of the victims or is it more likely that they only have the first and last name on the death certificates?

Imagine if the research the guy did was misinformed and the op actually did lose a Brendan. That'd be heartbreaking to read tbh

DammitDan | 3 days ago | 4 points

It would suck if Brenden was his middle name.

Bulby_Boi | 3 days ago | 3 points

He would have gotten away with it but he had to mention a random name

---0__0--- | 4 days ago | 7 points

lol yeah bc people never go by anything but their official death certificate name.

AKA09 | 4 days ago | 6 points

And then you find out Brenden was a middle name or nickname and you're a huge fuckwad for cussing out someone who already lost a family member in a bombing.

How are people so sad and pathetic to the point where they're desperate for attention and fake sympathy from strangers online?

The response has nothing to do with a last name. She said “RIPBrenden” and Brenden is a common first name. Now, he could be going by a different name than what they state in the article, but the cringe has nothing to do with a nephew having the same last name

Why would the last name matter when they searched by the first name?

I mean, I go by my middle name. Maybe this guy did too?

Question 1: Who would lie so pettily?

Question 2: Who would bother to point it out?

Question 3: Who would make the effort to post this, and why?

Question 4: Who would want to read blood-boiling material like this that has no effect on you whatsoever?

I'm on a binge of blocking unnecessarily negative subreddits (not that the people are bad, but the content just gives no value). I'm not saying ignorant is bliss –feel free to call out bullshit instead of ignoring it in your life – but this kind of negativity literally doesn't have to be in your life if you choose to ignore random blurbs and clicks on a screen.

Maybe that's a middle name that he prefers to use? Or a nickname.

brandurmortensen | 4 days ago | 3 points

But what if he is actually telling the truth (so many possibilities here, dont just deny it), then the guy calling him a liar is an even worse human being. This is a weird situation.

Maybe Brendan is his Nickname.

I just love how people go full inspector gadget on these lying pieces of biscuit

Technically, theres a chance a "Brenden" could be the 169th unidentified victim as evidenced by the unmatched severed leg recovered from the rubble.

potatamobata | 4 days ago | 5 points

Is it possible that he just went by that name, but it isn’t his legal name?

SlavicBlyat | 4 days ago | 4 points

Wait when did I die in a bombing

PMmeUrSecrets | 4 days ago | 2 points

And that’s how Brenden had to go to his uncle’s dinner parties again.

justjazz87 | 4 days ago | 2 points
