Juggalo Graffiti Vandals Deface Snowflake Structures

Juggalos are becoming a bigger problem , now damaging primary schools .

“It just shocks me that somebody would do this,” said Alma Yates, principal of Highland Primary School in Snowflake, which was one of the targets of some very vulgar graffiti.

Also vandalized during the early morning hours of Thursday, June 17, were the Town of Snowflake’s old water tank, Fredrickson Park and the skate park.

Some of the graffiti had gang reference. ICP was written, which Snowflake-Taylor Police officers said was a reference to the rock group Insane Clown Posse, which performed in concert on June 11 in Tempe. There was a swastika, and vulgarities were used abundantly and painted on all signs at the skate park, as well as garbage cans and bathrooms at Fredrickson Park.

Cliff Crow, a maintenance worker for the Snowflake School District, said it would be difficult to cover. The buildings at Highland Primary are covered with stucco or brick. Crews were out trying to take off as much paint as possible, and then they will paint over it, which puts new paint on parts of the building. There is a concern that the graffiti will bleed through, especially on the stucco.

Recreation and Parks Director Don Camacho said that it will cost the town more than $600 to repair damage at the skate park, which will be closed until further notice. That does not include the cost for clean up at Fredrickson Park or the water tank.

“We live in a great community. When a few individuals (juggalos) decided to do something like this and deface public property, I’m a little saddened, especially by the vulgarity and lack of sensitivity displayed there. Certainly we’re not happy about it,” said Snowflake School Superintendent Hollis Merrell. “That’s another frustrating part about this, our maintenance crews are going to have to be pulled off their regular work to hurry and get this cleaned up.”

“Some of the recent graffiti that has been discovered appears to be gang related, with some of it not identified as gang related,” said Snowflake-Taylor Police Chief Jerry VanWinkle. “However, the damage that was received was not only alarming, but if the violators are caught, they are facing felony charges.  This case is under investigation with some possible leads.

“The graffiti as you are coming into Taylor from Show Low is gang related and alarming. I am working on a graffiti town ordinance to present to both towns, which gives the town authority to enter private property to clean up the graffiti after a reasonable request to the owners.

“I would just encourage all citizens to help out by being an extra set of eyes and ears, and report suspicious activity or potential crimes that they witness. Our community matters, and everyone needs to participate in policing by being alert and reporting to the police or WeTip any suspicious activity. The WeTip program is very effective, and the citizens of Snowflake and Taylor can receive a reward if their information helps solve these crimes. They can call 1-800-782-7463.”

In the early morning hours of Thursday, June 17, graffiti was painted on Highland Primary School, the old Snowflake water tank, Fredrickson Park and the skate park. Nate Click, who is on the maintenance crew at the Snowflake School District, was among those out early trying to clean up the vulgarity left behind.

Juggalos = Bad Pet Owners Bad Dog Owners

Juggalos and Followers of the insane clown posse cant even raise pets .

STERLING HEIGHTS — Kadie Russell and Justin Baker desperately want their dogs to come home, but “even if they won’t give them back to us,” said Russell, “we just want them to live.”

The couple’s four dogs — part boxer, part pit bull — are held at the Macomb County Animal Shelter in Clinton Township pending the outcome of a June 28 court hearing in 41-A District Court.

Police confiscated the animals June 1 after the dogs allegedly attacked Warren resident James Stempnik, 59, while he was riding his bicycle near Metropolitan Parkway and Mound around 1:18 p.m.

Stempnik said he was heading to Dodge Park from his home near 14 Mile and Ryan when he spotted the barking dogs in a yard at the corner of Almont and Metro Parkway.

He continued past the fence, assuming they were contained, but he later learned they had gotten loose from Baker and Russell’s house next door and had wandered into a neighbor’s unsecured yard.

Within seconds, he said, they were chasing him, pursuing him for nearly 2 1/2 blocks as they latched onto his right foot and left calf. He eventually halted his bike, fearful of crashing.

“It’s very painful,” he recalled. “It’s just gushing blood. I’m sure I screamed.”

Stempnik said he attempted to fend off the dogs with a camera encased in a plastic grocery bag, but the camera flew out and broke, leaving him with only an empty bag to wave at them.

Soon after, “somebody pulled off of 16 Mile and got out of their car, and people in general started stopping their cars,” he said. “I’m sure they were calling 911. I was very grateful for that, very thankful for that. I’m … very fortunate that I was on a busy road in the middle of the afternoon.”

Passersby gave Stempnik a bath towel and disinfectant to dress his wounds, while another person smacked the sidewalk with a baseball bat to distract the animals.

Police and animal control officers were able to catch two of the dogs near 16 Mile and Mound, and the other two deeper into a nearby subdivision, said Sterling Heights Police Lt. Dale Dwojakowski.

Russell, 20, now faces ordinance violations for vicious dog attack and possessing unlicensed dogs. She said she’s willing to take responsibility for her pets’ escape and feels terrible about the incident — “We feel bad that somebody was bit; our heart goes out to him and his family,” she said — but doesn’t want the dogs, which she deems puppies, to pay with their lives.

She said she’s convinced someone released the animals from her fenced backyard in the 36900 block of Almont. After the incident, she said, she found a latch on the inner part of the gate broken and a wooden stake, sunken into the ground outside the gate, moved.

She said she and Baker, 22, had added the stake and lined the bottom of the fence with chicken wire and bricks to make sure the dogs couldn’t burrow out.

Though multiple “Beware of Dog” signs are taped to their fence and porch, Russell and Baker insist the animals — named Blumpkin, Juggalo Jay, Poopstain and Jamie Madrox — have never been violent.

Baker said they host barbecues almost weekly and frequently have in excess of 25 guests, including children, at their home. He said they’ve gotten letters signed by their veterinarian, attesting that the animals aren’t aggressive.

“They’re puppies,” said Russell, who said she bought the dogs for $300 last fall from acquaintances going through a home foreclosure in Eastpointe. “They like to roughhouse and play.”

Baker and Russell allege some of their neighbors have antagonized the animals in the past by yelling, throwing rocks and spraying water at them. They said a woman recently approached them to say that, just prior to the attack, she saw intoxicated men kicking the dogs near Rosie O’Grady’s, a bar on Mound.

While they’re allowed to visit the dogs at the shelter, as of June 11, Russell said they hadn’t because they wouldn’t be allowed to touch them.

“I just can’t see my dogs without being able to hold them,” she said. “They’re like my kids. I love them just like I love my daughter.”

Russell said the dogs are her constant companions while she’s recuperating at home from chemotherapy treatments for a softball-sized tumor lodged between her heart and lungs.

“These dogs — they’re there when everybody else is gone,” she said, while Baker added, “It’s empty now without them here. The whole house is empty.”

Russell said she believes that fewer people would be concerned with the incident if the dogs weren’t part pit bull.

“If this would have been four pugs, or four poodles, or four Dalmatians,” she said, “it wouldn’t have even been an issue.”

Lt. Luke Riley of the Sterling Heights Police Department said the dogs’ fate will be determined by the upcoming hearing. Had Baker and Russell not been able to supply documentation of the animals’ vaccinations, shelter officials would have euthanized the dogs to test for rabies, he said.

Stempnik — treated by paramedics on the scene and administered antibiotics and a tetanus shot later — said he’s mending slowly. He’s been able to work, perform household chores and ride his bike, he said, but his ankles and wrist remain tender.

He said he’s unsure what outcome he’s hoping for in court.

“I really defer to the officials in Sterling Heights,” he said. “They have a protocol that has to be followed. I’m not asking for any special consideration or anything like that.

“I personally think the dogs were in this pack mentality,” he added. “I was there, I saw them: They were circling. I think the dogs, (in) my opinion, they’re a nuisance because there are four of them. They had this pack mentality that they were not going to stop.”

Stempnik said how the dogs escaped means little to him; the bottom line is, they did.

“What kind of incident do you need — when some school kid is hurt, when it’s a mom pushing a stroller?” he said. “I don’t think (it’s the fault of) the dogs in and of themselves; they’re just doing what dogs do. It’s up to us to control them … us being humans.” (JUGGALOS ARE SUB HUMAN AS THEY CANT RAISE DOGS)

He said he was still in the process of wading through insurance coverage details and hadn’t yet contacted an attorney — and wasn’t sure if he would. At press time, he had not spoken to Baker or Russell about the incident.

Another Juggalo Committing Robbery

Catch this scumbag juggalo and get him off our streets .

NORTON SHORES — Police are looking for the man who robbed the Shell Gas Station at 4185 Old Grand Haven Road in Norton Shores on Tuesday morning.

Police said the suspect held the station clerk at knife point and escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

The man was described as white, approximately 30 years old, 6-feet tall and 230 pounds, with long brown shoulder-length hair parted down the middle. The clerk told authorities the man had several tattoos on his arms, including the “Hatchetman” from “The Insane Clown Posse” on his left-center forearm.

The suspect’s description matches the suspect involved in an armed robbery of Appolonia’s convenience store in Ferrysburg on June 10.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call 911, Silent Observer at (231) 722-7463 or the Norton Shores Police Department at (231) 733-2691.

Ban Icp Shirts – T-shirts fit for sale, but not to wear at Cape mall

T-shirts fit for sale, but not to wear at Cape mall

HYANNIS — An argument raging over a controversial band T-shirt is hitting sour notes this week at the Cape Cod Mall.

A Hyannis teenager shopping earlier this week at the mall was forced to flip inside out what security officers deemed to be an “inappropriate” T-shirt minutes after he purchased the shirt at a mall retailer.

Richard Gould, 18, bought the “Psychopathic Records” shirt, featuring the musical act the Insane Clown Posse, among others, Monday from Hot Topic, a music, clothing and merchandise chain.

He quickly put on the shirt, which depicts a cleaver-wielding silhouette on the back. But within minutes, a mall security guard forced Gould to turn it inside out and threatened to expel him from the building, citing the shirt as a gang symbol.

Gang shirts should be banned

Tech N9ne Arrested


Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne is out on bond after being arrested today in Lee’s Summit.

While the speeding-around-in-a-Ferrari part of the incident sounded glamorous, it turns out the alleged crime wasn’t much to rap home about.

Police said Tech, whose real name is Aaron Yates, had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court. The original charge, police said, was “placing illegal banners” in Blue Springs.

Lee’s Summit police said they picked up the rapper after a traffic stop at 12:50 p.m. today.

Word hit the Web by 1:19 p.m., when Tech posted on Twitter, “I’m getting arrested.”

He followed up with another tweet linking to a photo of a police officer helping him into the back of a cruiser.

Tech’s business partner, Travis O’Guin, later explained.

“You’ll probably laugh,” he said before launching into the story.

O’Guin said it all started when he and Tech decided to road-test O’Guin’s brand-new Ferrari F430.

O’Guin took the car from 0 to 70 mph in three seconds, he said, which caught the attention of a Lee’s Summit police officer.

The officer pulled O’Guin over outside of Culver’s, a burger restaurant at 1701 N.E. Douglas St., and ran the pair’s IDs. That’s when he discovered a warrant in Tech’s name and arrested the rapper.

O’Guin said neither he nor Tech knew about the Blue Springs charge or the warrant.

He said that it was probably Tech’s fans — not the rapper himself — who hung the posters, and that Tech wasn’t even in town when the charges were filed. He said he and Tech plan to go to court tomorrow morning to try to clear the charges.

O’Guin said Tech was in jail 22 minutes before posting $300 bond.
