Man with Florida tattoo on his forehead called 911 for a lift, but was arrested for weed possession instead – The GrowthOp02.06.21

Article content

A 22-year-old man from Florida, so enamoured of his home state that he sports a tattooed likeness of it on his forehead, has been arrested for misuse of 911 and marijuana possession.

Treating 911 like a personal taxi service, the man phoned emergency twice during the early-morning hours of last Sunday to get a ride home, according to WGN TV, citing a complaint filed with the court.

The first time he called was after 4 a.m. in the New Port Richey suburb of Tampa, the New York Post reports. A responding deputy with the Pasco County Sheriffs Office offered to call him a cab, but having no money, police reported he began walking in the direction of his home.

The walk didnt last long, though, since the man then called 911 for a second time, asking to get picked up and taken home. Not getting the response he wanted, he cursed at the call-taker, WGN TV reports.

That was enough for the deputy, who arrested him, while he was still on the line with 911, according to the New York Post. While carrying out a search, the sheriffs deputy found an unidentified amount of cannabis.

Possessing 20 grams or less of weed in Florida can result in a first-degree misdemenor charge carrying up to a year in jail and a fine of US$1,000 ($1,280).

Matthew Leatham faces charges of misusing of the 911 system and possessing weed. Leatham was released on US$300 ($384) bond.

Terminally ill man on mission to get tattoos with strangers makes stop at Savannah parlor – WKRG News 501.15.21

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) A man battling stage 4 kidney cancer is on a mission to celebrate life and leave a lasting impact on many.

Don Caskey, an Ohio man with a love of tattoos, says he was diagnosed with the terminal illness in December 2019. By New Years Eve, hed undergone surgery to remove a kidney.

It weighed about 8 pounds, the thing was huge, just full of cancer, Caskey told WSAV NOW.

The disease has since spread to his lymph nodes. Last summer, the 54-year-old father of five began reflecting on life and the things that matter to him the most.

I looked down at the tattoo I got for my cancer, the dying pine tree, and I realized that I cant take anything material with me, I cant take money or cars when I die, but those memories, those tattoos, they will go with me, I believe, said Caskey, who got his first tattoo at age 40.

He embarked on a journey of expanding his collection of ink but he didnt plan to do it alone.

I just thought Id start asking people if they want to join me, create more memories, have more human connectivity and make a lot more friends, Caskey said.

At first, people thought I was kind of crazy, I mean, theyre looking at me like, what the heck, this guy wants to get in touch with me, he doesnt even know me, he said.

He began his tattoo journey on Aug. 23, 2020, by posting on Facebook his plans to appear at different tattoo shops to get tatted with complete strangers.

People just kind of show up, Caskey said. Since August, he says hes gotten matching tattoos with 141 people.

So far, hes visited tattoo shops in Georgia, Florida, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and Maryland, bonding with newfound friends through their love of body art.

The cancer part yeah, it sucks but Im having one of the best times of my life, he said.

Caskey kicked off the new year in Savannah, stopping by Tramp Art Studios on Victory Drive.

He says about 14 people joined him in getting matching tattoos over two days. One of them was Nina Bragg.

One of my friends and I came in to get tattoos, and he was sitting right here and asked what we were going to do, Bragg told WSAV NOW.

I told him what tattoos we were getting, and I jokingly asked if he wanted to get one as well, Bragg said, adding, He was like, well, actually, let me tell you my story, so he told us and asked if it was okay if he could get a matching tattoo with us, and of course, we said yes.

Their tattoo of choice seemed fitting for Caskeys visit to the Peach State.

I got a Georgia peach on my butt, he said.

He says hes overwhelmed and humbled by the support that total strangers have shown him on his celebration-of-life journey thus far.

One woman who beat cervical cancer drove over an hour to Savannah just to get matching cervical cancer survivor tattoos with Caskey.

To have somebody put something permanent on their body for me, it just is huge, Caskey said. I dont know how to describe it, other than its just one of the most amazing feelings ever.

He says hes received support and messages from people all over the world. I get people that connect with me saying hey, Ive got Crohns disease, or Ive got depression, or my dad died of cancer, saying that Im inspiring them to get through whatever theyre going through, Caskey said.

Tramp Art Studios owner Kirsten Cassat, along with a few of her colleagues, also took part in Caskeys mission.

I have a lighter with Don in the middle of it, Cassat said, describing her new tattoo.

I think its awesome, Ive never experienced anybody doing what hes doing, Cassat said.

Hes really brought something new into our lives that we didnt know was going to be a thing, she added. People dont get matching tattoos with just anybody, so it is a special connection that he brought to our community.

Florida man accused of stealing lectern and Arizona conspiracy theorist in Capitol riot charged on top of other arrests – Anchorage Daily News01.15.21

WASHINGTON - One waved as he carried off the lectern of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The other flexed his bare, tattoo-covered torso and as he stood in front of Vice President Mike Pences chair in the Senate chamber.

Two men seen in some of the most memorable images of Wednesdays assault on the Capitol have been charged and arrested, as federal prosecutors in the District of Columbia target high-profile figures from the pro-Trump riot.

Jacob Anthony Chansley, of Arizona, who also goes by Jake Angeli, is accused of trespassing on Capitol grounds, entering violently and committing disorderly conduct while there. Adam Johnson, 36, of Bradenton, Fla., faces the same charges as well as theft of government property in connection with the lectern.

Prosecutors also detailed charges against a man accused of threatening to kill Pelosi, D-Calif., and against a West Virginia state lawmaker who resigned his office Saturday.

Sixteen people have been charged in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia with crimes related to the storming of the Capitol, including a man who admitted to stealing a document from Pelosis office. Forty others face charges in District Superior Court.

The federal cases charged so far involve the low-hanging fruit of the investigation - people who either identified themselves in online postings or were quickly identified by others who saw the images and recognized the individuals. The acting U.S. attorney in the District, Michael Sherwin, said a broader investigation into who did what at the Capitol, and what their intentions were, could take until at least the end of this year.

This is just the beginning, he said Friday.

The most common charge, unlawful entry into a restricted building, is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison. People who carried weapons or engaged in violence could face up to 10 years in prison. Making interstate threats is a felony punishable by up to five years. Most federal sentences fall far below statutory maximums.

The nations capital is one of the most secure cities on the planet, and federal law enforcement agencies, particularly the Capitol Police, have faced blistering criticism from the public and politicians that they were unprepared for the mob that invaded the building. Law enforcement agencies are scrambling to prove that they can quickly investigate, arrest and prosecute those responsible, particularly with the added pressure of talk already circulating online of additional unrest or confrontations on Jan. 17 and Inauguration Day, Jan. 20.

A number of right-wing politicians and advocates have suggested that the mob at the Capitol contained far-left provocateurs, and blamed antifa, a shorthand term for antifascists. But FBI officials said they have seen no evidence that antifa activists were there or involved.

Cleveland Meredith was charged Thursday with threatening Pelosi, one day after arriving in the capital from Colorado. He told law enforcement he got to Washington too late for the protest or the attack on the Capitol. But on his way there, according to court documents, he texted a friend to say he was Thinking about heading over to Pelosi . . . speech and putting a bullet in her noggin on Live TV, a remark that was followed by purple devil emoji.

While prosecutors do not allege that Meredith ever got near Pelosi, they say he was carrying a 9mm Glock 19 pistol, an Israeli army standard-issue Tavor X95 assault rifle and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

In these early arrests, authorities relied heavily on open-source information, including news reports and the participants own social media posts. Former West Virginia state representative Derrick Evans, a Republican, who is charged with unlawful entry and disorderly conduct, live-streamed himself barging into the Capitol building with the mob. An FBI special agent wrote in an affidavit that though Evans later deleted the video, it is still available on Reddit, and that though Evans later described himself as an independent member of the media, on Facebook he says he is a political candidate who would attend the rally in support of President Donald Trump.

In his resignation letter, Evans said he took full responsibility for my actions.

A widely circulated Getty Images photograph led investigators to Johnson, FBI Special Agent Michael Jeng wrote in an affidavit. The image showed a red-haired man in a ski hat carrying Pelosis lectern and waving.

The lectern, which is worth over $1,000, was found a day later in a corridor on the other side of the Capitol building, according to Jeng.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Jeng noted, subsequently reported that the same man posted pictures under the name Adam Johnson from inside the Capitol. In one, he is pictured next to a sign saying the building is Closed to all tours.

The caption accompanying the photograph, seemingly in response to the sign, says No, " Jeng wrote.

Florida documentary photographer Allan Mestel told The Washington Post that he had planned to travel to the event himself as an observer, but his wife deemed it too dangerous. Then, watching the news, he saw a friends neighbor carrying Pelosis lectern.

Mestel said that though he had never met Johnson, he knew him by sight and from social media, where the fellow Floridian expressed extreme right-wing views and pro-conspiracy theory views.

The Bradenton Herald reported that hours before the riot, Johnson posted on Facebook that he had joined a crowd the previous evening chanting expletives dismissive of the Black Lives Matter movement.

It was pretty amazing, his post said.

About 200 Trump supporters converged on Black Lives Matter Plaza near the White House on Tuesday night; a woman and two District police officers were taken to a hospital with minor injuries in connection with that demonstration.

Mestel said he called the FBI to identify Johnson. He said he was impressed and surprised by how quickly they responded.

Prosecutors identified Chansley as the man wearing fur-lined headdress and face paint who stood on the dais in the Senate chamber next to Pences chair in widely distributed photographs of the chaos inside the Capitol.

Chansley, who also goes by Jake Angeli and is associated with QAnon, was charged Friday with entering restricted grounds and disrupting Capitol business in Washington. A Capitol Police arrest affidavit said an agent confirmed Chansleys identification by media reports, citing his unique attire and extensive tattoos seen in photographs Chansley posted on a Facebook page. The defendant also was identified by law enforcement through public databases, including his Arizona drivers license photo, said Capitol Police Special Agent James Soltes.

Chansley called the FBI on Thursday to speak to law enforcement, Soltes wrote, and confirmed that he was the man wearing the headdress on the dais. He stated that he came as a part of a group effort, with other patriots from Arizona, at the request of the President that all patriots come to D.C. on January 6, 2021, Soltes wrote.

Chansley could not be reached Saturday. In a lengthy telephone call Friday, he told The Post he was not at all afraid of arrest and believed himself innocent. I didnt do anything wrong, he said, although he acknowledged that he entered the Capitol with other protesters, wearing the distinctive costume with horns and fur. [B]ut isnt that a public building? Didnt our tax dollars pay for that building?

Using the name Angeli, Chansley has been repeatedly photographed and interviewed in his distinctive garb at pro-Trump rallies over the past year. He often carried a sign saying Q sent me.

When you really do enough research, it all ties together, he told the Arizona Republic about QAnon, which holds that Trump is fighting an alliance of Democratic politicians and Hollywood liberals involved in child sex trafficking. The woman who was shot and killed by a Capitol Police officer Wednesday also was an adherent of the conspiracy theory, which is heavily influenced by anti-Semitic tropes.

Information about attorneys for Chansley, Johnson and Meredith was not immediately available.

The Washington Posts Fredrick Kunkle contributed to this report.

‘Below Deck’: Captain Lee Addresses Backlash He Received Over Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine – Showbiz Cheat Sheet01.15.21

Below Deck fans flooded Captain Lee Rosbachs social media feed after he shared a photo receiving the COVID-19 (coronavirus) vaccine. Some fans suggested Rosbach used his celebrity status to secure the vaccine before others. A few fans expressed concerns about the vaccine.

Rosbach and his wife live in Florida, which allows anyone over age 65 to receive the vaccine. Rosbach shared the photo to document his story with the vaccine and to share his experience. But instead, he received a slew of questions as to how he was able to get the vaccine and some push back from those who expressed concerns about it.

Because of all the questions and controversy on social media, Rosbach felt the need to clarify and explain his position and who is able to get vaccinated in Florida.

Rosbach used his blog to address the questions and concerns he received on social media. Yes, Mary Anne and I did get the [Covid] vaccine this past week, he wrote in his blog. No, we didnt use our position in life to cut in line to get it. We are both well over 65 which is the age to sign up to receive it in our state of Fl. We signed up, waited to get the call, when it came, we followed instructions, and got the vaccine.

He added that after five days, he and his wife havent experienced any side effects and are waiting to get their second dose. I decided to post it on social media to make people aware that in my opinion it is safe, and you can have confidence in taking it, he wrote. But that is a personal decision that everyone needs to make on their own. So, I hope this clarifies this matter for some people.

Confused fans shared a slew of responses. Are you 75? Thats the rule in most states, one person posted on his Instagram share. Another person added, Bad choice.

Rosbach took off his shirt to receive the vaccine. Of course, a slew of fans couldnt help but notice that Rosbach is incredibly fit. Didnt know it required you to take off your shirt, one person joked. Another ribbed him, Captain lee you dawg.

Fans also noted that Rosbach was in great shape. Damn Cappy is ripped, a fan wrote. Other comments included, Captain Jacked Lee and daammmnnn captain lee is fit.

On a side note, Rosbach wrote in his blog. There have been a lot of comments about the fact that I told Delores that I didnt have any tattoos. Well at that time, I didnt. I got my sons picture done after we filmed. Hope this clears that up as well.

Is the QAnon Shaman From the MAGA Capitol Riot Covered in Neo-Nazi Imagery? – Rolling Stone01.09.21

Mere hours after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., forcing Congress to evacuate and giving every impression of staging an attempted coup, the right-wing propaganda machine whirred to life. Republican mouthpiece Sarah Palin, Pro-Trump lawyer Lin Wood (who has since been banned from Twitter for inciting violence), far-right Florida Representative Matt Gaetz, and innumerable pro-Trump social media accounts all began spreading an unfounded and utterly bizarre false-flag theory that antifascists, or antifa, had somehow infiltrated the crowd and were actually behind all the violence and destruction. Among their major pieces of evidence were photos of Arizona QAnon supporter Jake Angeli, who is well-known for his outsized, costumed presence at pro-Trump rallies and far-right anti-lockdown protests. Angeli himself was mortified at being mistaken for antifa, tweeting plaintively, Im a Qanon & digital soldier. My name is Jake & I marched with the police & fought against BLM & ANTIFA in PHX.

But there may be an even more blatant sign that Angeli is no friend to antifascists: his much-photographed bare torso is covered in symbols that have long been used by the white supremacist movement. Given his penchant for showing up to protests shirtless, face-painted, and sporting a horned helmet like some kind of racist Party City Viking who took a wrong turn and ended up at Burning Man, Angelis many tattoos are often on full display, including his large trio of Odinist symbols. He has a mjolnir, or Thors Hammer, on his stomach, an image of Yggdrasil, or Tree of Life, etched around his nipple, and most significantly, placed right above his heart, a valknut, or knot of the slain, an old Norse runic symbol turned recognized hate symbol that is popular among white supremacists. In addition, the mjolnir has become a symbol of identity among self-proclaimed heathens (code for white supremacy-aligned pagans).

The presence of Yggdrasil or even mjolnir on their own isnt necessarily cause for alarm, given their popularity among modern pagans and fans of Norse mythology, but there is far less ambiguity around the valknut. There is some debate about its original meaning, and its three interconnected triangles have appeared on a variety of archaeological objects from the Viking era; the name itself is a neologism, a modern combination of the Old Norse valr the slain and knut, knot. While its used in some European corporate logos, Heathens now use it to signify that one is ready to be taken into the ranks of Odins chosen warriors essentially, to die a warriors death for the cause. When tattooed on a conservative activist who adheres to a blood libel-style conspiracy like QAnon, it wouldnt even have to mean he was a white supremacist, but rather that conspiratorial worldviews have a historical context about which their believers should be slightly self-aware.

Understandably, many actual pagans are horrified at the way white supremacists have co-opted their religious and cultural icons and twisted them into symbols of hate. Talia Lavin, who explores the concept in her recent book, Culture Warlords, says that neo-Nazis Viking fetish harkens back to their obsession with both traditional European conceptions of masculinity and whiteness itself. Neopagan symbols offer the hypermasculine aesthetic sheen of the Viking, she explains via text message. But we can also see a desire to ground their white supremacist ideology in a purportedly timeless myth, a desire to reach back to an anachronistic, ahistorical perfect whiteness, thus grounding their violence in an idealized past, in white nationalism as in any other form of nationalism.

This kind of Norse imagery had a long history of being co-opted by terrible people. The original Nazis famously made heavy use of Norse and Germanic runes (the SS bolt is the most famous example), as do their modern successors in groups like the Nordic Resistance Movement, the Soldiers of Odin, and the National Socialist Movement, which has adopted the othala or odal rune as its logo. Members of the Aryan Brotherhood are fond of tattooing runes and Viking symbols alongside their swastikas and Celtic crosses; an explicitly white supremacist branch of modern paganism called Odinism or Wotanism is promoted by the Asatru Folk Assembly (whose founder, Stephen McNallen, attended the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville) and continues to proliferate and cross-pollinate with other fascist ideologies (notorious white supremacist and murderer David Lane was a fan); and runes are rampant within the neo-Nazi black metal scene (which is where I first came across the valknut after stumbling on a Nazi black metal band named, well, Walknut). Its similar to what happened to the swastika, in which an ancient religious symbol was violently co-opted by Nazis and forever poisoned; movements to reclaim the swastika exist, but some things simply cannot be undone, no matter how unfair it is to the innocent people who saw their sacred symbol stolen and perverted.

This is also where it can get sticky, though, because there are plenty of pagans and metal musicians who are not affiliated with white supremacist ideologies (as well as explicitly anti-fascist varieties of each). The existence of both Thorrs Hammer, a highly respected and definitely not fascist 90s death/doom project with lyrics about Norse mythology and a Norwegian vocalist, and Thors Hammer, a virulently racist neo-Nazi black metal band from Poland with deep ties to the international Nazi black metal scene, make that apparent. Outside of subcultural niches, not every person who gets a rune or Norse symbol tattoo necessarily fully understands its political and cultural history, especially now that Marvel has brought the legend of Thor and his Hammer back into the mainstream. There is even a growing movement to wrest these symbols and modern heathenism more generally away from white supremacists, with groups like Heathens Against Hate and Heathens United Against Racism offering an antiracist alternative.

If Angeli himself were not so obviously aligned with anti-Semitic far-right extremist politics, his tattoos would not carry nearly so much weight. But since he is, he seems to be sending a message with those interlocked triangles, one that could be recognized by the white supremacists hes chosen to march alongside. The rights attempt to paint him as antifa would almost be funny if it werent so utterly detached from reality. When someone goes to such extravagant lengths to show you who they are, believe them.

Whos who in the Trump mob: Conspiracists, neo-Nazis and gun activists – FRANCE 24 English01.09.21

Issued on: 08/01/2021 - 09:05

The tattoo-chested man in a horned headdress, the middle-aged intruder with his foot on Speaker Nancy Pelosis desk and the woman shot dead by police: Their images have been beamed around the world but who are the Donald Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol?

Pro-gun campaigner

Richard Barnett, 60, from Gravette in northwest Arkansas, barged into the office of House Democrat leader Pelosi where he was photographed leaning back in a chair with his left foot on her desk.

Barnett, known locally for hosting the pro-gun Facebook group 2A NWA STAND!!!, told Arkansas news channel KFSM 5News that he somehow ended up there by accident.

I didnt break the doors. I was shoved in. I didnt mean to be in there. Hell, I was looking for the bathroom, said Barnett.

He added though that he had every right to be in Pelosis office.

My desk. Im a taxpayer. Im a patriot. It aint her desk. We loaned her that desk.

Before leaving, Barnett stole an envelope and left Pelosi a note calling her a bitch, he told KFSM 5News.

QAnon digital soldier

Shirtless, sporting face paint and a fur hat complete with buffalo horns, Jake Angeli is a prominent supporter of the far-right QAnon conspiracy theory.

He describes himself as a digital soldier of the movement that claims Trump is waging a secret war against a global liberal cult of Satan-worshipping pedophiles.

The 33-year-old Angeli presented himself as a shamanist and consultant for the Trump supporters when he was photographed by AFP at a rally in Phoenix, Arizona in November. He was wearing his headdress then too.

Were patriots on the front lines in Arizona who wish to take our positive energy to DC, he wrote on the ultra-conservative social network Parler in December.

Social media users noted similarities between Angelis look and that of 1990s Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay, forcing the jazz-funk performer to assure fans that he wasnt in Washington on Wednesday.

Neo-Nazi

Photographed standing alongside Angeli was 29-year-old Matthew Heimbach, considered by many to be the face of a new generation of white nationalists, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Heimbach was one of the organizers of the far-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017, on the sidelines of which a woman was killed by a neo-Nazi.

Military veteran

Ashli Babbitt was named by police as the woman shot at close range by a police officer as she tried to climb through a broken window in the hallway of Congress.

The 35-year-old from San Diego later died from her injuries. KUSI-TV quoted her husband as saying she had been a staunch Trump supporter and a great patriot.

Babbitt was a US Air Force veteran who described herself as a Libertarian on her Twitter page.

On Tuesday she tweeted: Nothing will stop us....they can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours....dark to light!

Lectern thief

Looking particularly pleased with his days efforts was a man in a Trump winter beanie hat smiling and waving at cameras as he carried Pelosis lectern.

Local media identified him as 36-year-old Adam Johnson, a father of five from Parrish, Florida.

Cell phone executive says proposed tower is too tall – corneliustoday.com12.27.20

Cell tower simulation: PeakNet MonoPole off Jetton

Dec. 21. By Dave Vieser. The CEO of a company which builds and locates cell phone towers says PeakNets proposed 199-foot cell tower adjacent to the Jetton Cove neighborhood is too tall.

Alex Blasscyk, CEO of Main Street Telecom based in Sarasota Fla., read about the controversy online in Cornelius Today and contacted us over the weekend.

Is taller always better?

The only reason a tower company or carrier wants a higher tower like 199 feet is because they can obtain additional rent from other carriers and recoup all costs, Blasscyk said in an e-mail.

Lower is better because of capacity issues, meaning you want to be lower to provide optimal coverage. he said, explaining that carriers today are locating and building their cell phone towers on other structures or 3-5 story rooftops.

Blasscyk, CEO of Main Street Telecom, said 160 feet is plenty big.

The request from Florida based PeakNet for permission to build the 199 foot tower in Cornelius has generated significant opposition among local residents. In November, the Planning Board recommended approval by a margin of 4-3, placing the matter in the hands of the Town Board.

Just wrong

DUKE

Placing a 199 cell tower next to any upscale neighborhood is just wrong, said Commissioner Jim Duke.

To do it for additional profit as cited by the Florida CEO is disgusting, Duke said. Its like putting a tattoo parlor next to a church. It just doesnt fit in the Peninsula and it is my hope that my fellow commissioners will join with Commissioner Denis Bilodeau and myself and just say no.

Efforts to reach Peak Net for a response were unsuccessful.

Commissioner Bilodeau said the town should hire a cell phone consultant so commissioners can gain a greater understanding of the issues involved before making a decision.

The town board meets tonight at 6 pm. To watch the meeting online, go to http://www.cornelius.org. Click on Watch Meetings Online, at the bottom of the left-hand column
