beware the wrath of /b/ 4chan/b/ versus @flyguyparsons

Screen shot taken from the twitter account of Aaron Jacob Parsons

Its been an interesting day in Cyberspace.  A perfect storm of sorts has come together and unleashed her fury on in the form of thousands and thousands of views of an article I wrote regarding Aaron Jacob Fosters yesterday.  As of 7:01 p.m. tonight I have had 6,938 people from 11 countries visit my website and read what I wrote. There 3,583 clicks of links that I provided that contain more information/corroboration of the crimes that are proven alleged by what I have written, all of which originated on the /b/ forum on  I want to take this opportunity to give props to the guys and girls who reside at /b/.  They might be a little warped but collectively they hold a great deal of power in their fingertips.  It was awesome to be a witness to this power as it unfolded.  Awesome as in I was awestruck and still am.  Certainly it is not a good idea to get on the bad side of a group that has this kind of power at its disposal.  Even worse to do it when they are bored and frothing at the bit for something to do.

It seems a bit of a foregone conclusion that the consequences are going to be severe and swift for the individuals responsible for the degrading beat down and robbery of the still unnamed victim in this case.  I feel absolutely no sympathy for the perpetrators.  I don’t give a shit what they have to say about it or what their excuse is or if they even remember what they were doing because of intoxication levels , temporary amnesia etc.  I really hope that prison is the end result for Aaron Jacob Parsons and everyone else involved, especially that annoying drunk bitch wearing her black panties parading around the street like she was some glamour queen.  Fuck her.  (man she STILL pisses me off)

The haters calling me racist can all suck it to be honest.  I am not even going to bother addressing that accusation.  It’s not true and my life and anything I’ve ever written in the past will attest to that FACT.  So, hate on haters.

I got a call from a reporter named Justin from the Baltimore Sun.  We talked for quite a few minutes about the origin of this situation, 4chan’s /b/ forum and more.  His view, stated to me anyhow, was that this is an instance of the internet being used for good and he was quick to show his admiration for the detective work done by the /b/ forum lurkers.  I agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment.  Choosing to fight against the “forces that /b/ is the ultimate example of the idiot who brings a knife to a gun fight”.

Have a good night everyone……Anthony Mandich

ImageADDENDUM: I replied to an email from the reporter I mentioned.  Here is what I had to say.  And I quote:

hey justin it was good talking to you.  i’m sending you this stuff before i even blog it so i must think you’re cool.  just don’t get me killed lol.

here is a quote from me if you want
“aaron jacob parsons is a wanted man”….post after post on /b/ repeated those words. it was late i was annoyed.  the arrogance shown by @flyguyparsons and @CASHton-Kutcher by posting the video of themselves proudly separating a man from his dignity really angered me.  they acted like it was so funny and so cool.
to beat down a guy like that, seemingly with impunity when: 
(A) he didn’t deserve it  and 
(B) couldn’t do anything about it but bleed and sit there bewildered, humiliated and alone and 
(C) further add to his pain by taking everything of value in his possession, stripping him naked, and letting some ugly drunk annoying bitch slap him open palmed across his face while he’s on his back  just didn’t sit well with me.
and the poor guy took it like a champ.  he didn’t defend himself (which was probably smart in this instance because this was a bear that you had to play dead against for sure.  so yeah he didn’t defend himself but he also didn’t bring further dishonor to himself by crying, pissing or moaning.  
two things resonated strongly with me.
1. the images of parsons mugging for the camera before the humiliation began and then creeping up and start digging through the guys pockets like it was a big joke.  i really hated that.
2.  that ugly chick wearing her panties with her big old ass all drunk grinding on the guy before it all started and then when he was down on his back she’s there standing behind his head and starts slapping in his face HARD and he can’t even see where these blows are coming from because she is standing behind his head.  that was particularly cowardly and thinking about it right now gets my blood boiling.  
you asked me what was different about this video as opposed to the many other millions of videos that are out there on the internet.  I am going to answer that with a post i did on some girls from a sorority at bowling green who were tragically killed in a car accident a few weeks ago.  my answer is obvious.

Alpha Xi Delta Sorority in Mourning After Tragic Accident in Ohio

Just saw a clip of a fatal accident on a few minutes ago that on face value wasn’t anything out of the ordinary.  I’m not saying that all fatal accidents aren’t tragic for those involved and their families and friends.  I’m simply saying that the video, shot from the dash-cam of a Ohio Highway Patrol officer’s cruiser, likely wouldn’t  elicit much of a response if viewed by someone accustomed to reviewing footage of accidents.

Some accidents that are caught on film are horrifying and dramatic simply because they happen to be caught on tape either from a cell phone video camera or CCTV.   This wasn’t one of those instances.  In fact the video doesn’t show the accident itself although it does begin several seconds prior to it.    It shows a seemingly mundane two lane highway in Ohio, with the trooper in the left lane just driving along, when all of a sudden a car approaches, very rapidly, in the right lane, and passes right by the officer.

Had the clip ended right then, I would have assumed that it was  a run of the mill one lane highway with cross traffic,  not unlike many other desert highways interspersed throughout my stomping grounds in  California and Nevada.

The only problem is that this particular portion of  Interstate 75 does not contain cross traffic. Traffic in both of these lanes are  supposed to be going the same way.

The person driving the car that blew by the state trooper, for some unknown reason, was rapidly headed straight into oncoming traffic.

She plunged into her tragic destiny, wholly unaware of the horrific consequences she was about to unleash on herself and several innocent young lives. 

Barring a miracle, on busy Interstate 75,  at night, with thousands of drivers speeding to various destinations, one woman’s catastrophic error was a sure-fire recipe for unthinkable human tragedy.

The officer quickly flips around and begins his pursuit.

Again, this video is anticlimactic, mundane even, despite its chilling and deadly results.

Not five seconds into his pursuit we see the officer approach the scene of an accident that had taken place perhaps nano seconds earlier.  I couldn’t identify  the make or model of the one car completely visible to me. I could only see that it was dark colored.  It didn’t really even look terribly mangled.  Mostly hidden from view, except for what appeared to be the beginnings of a small fire, was another car, the car driven by the wrong way driver.

The officer gets out, flashlight in hand, goes over to the first car, looks inside and then goes to the second car.  The video then skips to a few minutes later presumably where the officer has been joined by firefighters and other emergency personnel.  No other information could be gleaned from the video.

Something made me do a little more digging on this story and I was sad to learn that the driver of the car going the wrong way, a 69 year old woman named Winifred Lein, was killed in the accident.  That is a sad but expected result for someone who obviously was incapable of intelligently making routine driving decisions that night and should not have been sitting behind the wheel. That she ended up driving the wrong way on a highway and dying as a result of it was a tragedy for sure, but one where the driver could safely be pointed to as the cause of her own demise.

For me, the law of the jungle applies in these types of incidents and as long as the person involved didn’t take anyone else along with them, I probably wouldn’t have given it a second thought to be honest.  It may sound callous but such is the nature of a world in which humans are exposed to a myriad of similar stories day after day.  We simply become numb to these everyday tragedies and accept them as part of life.

Only stories that contain extraordinary examples of the tragedies or triumphs of life have the effect of penetrating the psyche of your average internet savvy citizen of the world, 2012 edition.  This story contains just this sort of extraordinary example of tragedy I’m afraid.

There were two cars involved in this accident.  One contained the 69 year old Mrs. Lein, an Ohio resident, and the cause of  this whole turn of events.

Inside the other car,  were five beautiful girls, students  from Bowling Green State University, and members of the Alpha Xi Delta sorority,  who had been on their way to the airport to catch their flights (along with eleven other sorority sisters) to the Caribbean (Dominican Republic) for a much anticipated spring break vacation.  Three of the girls were killed in the wreck instantly.  The other two girls were listed in critical condition in the article that I read on

Killed in the wreck were Christina Goyett, Rebekah Blakkolb, and Sarah Hammond, ages 19, 20, and 21 respectively.  As you can clearly see from the pictures I’m including in this article, they were all beautiful girls and it really makes me feel sad for them, their families and friends, the school and basically everyone who was a part of these girl’s lives.

It is unthinkable to have something like this happen to these ladies after persevering through the challenges (and midterms!) presented to them during the first half of the spring semester, with the minutes crawling by like hours, to finally being at the deliciously agonizing point where their  anticipation was about to be replaced by the incomparable joy of actuallyexperiencing , and being caught up in,  the moment the plane would taxi down the runway, take off and catapult these young ladies into paradise.

To imagine the circumstances and empathize with these girls and the knowledge that one second they were mere minutes away from their trip to paradise in the Dominican Republic, and the next second they were either dead or critically injured is just unthinkably horrific.

I don’t have to search for confirmation of the obvious fact that these girls would have been planning this trip  for months and were surely downright giddy with anticipation and excitement for what was sure to be an incredible experience, etched into the fabric of their life’s memories where it would undoubtedly  be recalled time after time, retold and cherished.

Then it was snatched away.

The fact that their lives were instead, tragically cut short in such a bizarre and shocking fashion reeks of a truly horrible irony and really had me shaking my head at the brutality that life delivers at times without even a second of advance warning.

The odds of these girls dying after being hit by someone speeding down the highway going the wrong way, on their way to the airport to depart for their vacation had to have been a trillion to one against.   Yet somehow it happened.

I’m not going to trash the dead woman.  Whether I believe she should be trashed or not is irrelevant, as are the notions of whether she should have been on the road to begin with.  Those questions and many others are sure to be asked by people infinitely more qualified to comment on this tragedy then I am.

I simply want to extend my condolences to the families of everyone involved and assure you that my prayers are with you during this sad time.  God bless you all and rest in peace Christina, Rebekah, Sarah and Mrs. Lein.
