Hollywood Casino Toledo: Gaming, Dining, & Entertainment

Qualified in a satellite for an entry in the $75k guaranteed Great Lakes Poker Open

I finished in the top 4 of a $35 satellite yesterday to gain entry in the Great Lakes Poker Open being played this weekend at the Hollywood Casino in Toledo, Ohio.
I'm in flight C which starts at 2:15 PM Eastern today. I've played lots of smaller live tournaments (under 50 entries) but this will be the biggest one for me so far. The casino added several tables outside of the poker room (which holds about 20 tables I believe) so they're expecting lots of entries.
If you're playing in this, good luck to you and hopefully we make it to the final stage of Monday!

Detroit man accused of attempting to cheat casino game - In Toledo, Ohio

Relocating to Toledo soon; how bad is the anti-mask crowd there?

My wife and I are going to be moving to Toledo in the next several weeks, thanks to COVID as it turns out. I'm not greatly worried about work exposure as she'll be working at the casino, and I work from home. But I was curious about how things are in stores. Obviously cases are soaring in Ohio like they are everywhere in the U.S., so what should I expect for the few public trips I'll need to make?

Three Way Trophies and why we need more of them.

The coolest trophy in all of college football is the three way trophy. The Commander-in-Chief's Trophy between Army/Navy/Air Force and the Michigan MAC Trophy between Easter Michigan, Central Michigan and Western Michigan are the only ones currently active, but we need more. What's more is that we could even have four way trophies that would be a ton of fun.
The Florida Cup(Miami/Florida/Florida State) and the Beehive Boot(BYU/Utah State/Utah) are semi-active, but they should happen almost every year.
Potential ones that would be easy and wouldn't require realignment:
Cascadia Cup - Technically the name of an MLS Trophy, but we will steal it because it fits so well, Washington, Washington State, Oregon and Oregon State. Makes too much sense.
California Cup - Stanford, USC, Cal and UCLA already play each other every year, even in different divisions. Simple.
Ohio MAC Trophy - Akron, Kent State, Ohio, Bowling Green and Miami are all in the MAC East. Toledo being in the MAC West. Swap Toledo and Buffalo, and the MAC East is essentially a six team trophy already, but that's sort of cheating. Without changing anything, Ohio, Akron and Kent State can have and Eastern Ohio MAC Trophy, and Toledo can play Bowling Green/Miami every year to create a Western MAC Ohio Trophy.
Something that divisional realignment would easily solve:
ACC Carolina Cup - Wake Forest, North Carolina, Duke, NC State. Duke/NC State and UNC/Wake Forest don't play each other every year, but because of the 8 game schedule, they all need to be in one division. Trade WF/NC State with Georgia Tech/Miami. Simple.
After this, it's pretty hard, but I thought of a few ideas that some creative and dedicated AD's could make happen:
Indiana Infighting - Notre Dame, Purdue, Ball State, Indiana.
Ohio River Trophy - Louisville, Cincinnati, Miami (OH), and Marshall.
Appalachia Cup - Tennessee, West Virginia, Appalachian State and Virginia Tech.
Coal Country Clash - West Virginia, Pitt, Penn State.
Rocky Mountain State Rumble - Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Wyoming.
South Florida Showdown - Miami, FAU, FIU, USF.
New England Cup(Lobster Roll Championship) - UMass/UConn/Boston College.
Mississippi Delta Madness - ULM, Memphis, Arkansas State, and Ole Miss.
Texas Is Not Quite Back Grand Prix - Cal, Kansas, Maryland.
Lone Star Holy War(Televangelist's Threeway) - TCU/BayloSMU.
Bay Area Rent Control - Cal, Stanford, San Jose State.
Oil Refinery Open - Texas A&M, Houston, Rice.
Red Dirt is Better Than Nashville Country - Tulsa, North Texas, Texas State.
Alabama Afterthoughts Altercation - UAB, South Alabama, Troy.
Battle for the Walter White Corridor - UTEP, New Mexico State, New Mexico.
Cocaine Cup - SMU, Miami, Arizona.
Amtrak Delay Derby - Boston College, Rutgers, Temple.
The I-10 Waffle House Tour - LSU, Louisiana-Lafayette(I guess just Louisiana now?), South Alabama and Florida State.
Rocky Mountain State Rumble 2.0 - Colorado State, Utah State, and New Mexico State.
Rocky Mountain State Rumble Version Family Values - BYU.
Battle for Myrtle Beach(Kenny Powers Cup) - Georgia Southern, Coastal Carolina, East Carolina.
Branson With Your Grandparents Lottery - Tulsa, Arkansas, Arkansas State, and Missouri.
Bottle Service Bonanza - San Diego State, Arizona State, and UNLV.
Hill Country Hullabaloo - Texas State, Texas, UTSA.
Shootyhoops Showdown - Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, Indiana.
New Yorker Invitational - Miami, Arizona State, East Carolina, Coastal Carolina.
Californian Invitational - Nevada, Washington State, Boise State.
Bachelorette Party Brawl - UNLV, Vanderbilt, Miami.
Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy, Twitter Edition - Army, Navy, Air Force, Space Force.
Big 12 Reject-a-palooza - UCF, Houston, BYU.
Our God is an Awesome God Grand Prix - Baylor, BYU, Notre Dame.
Casino Money - Oklahoma, Louisiana Tech, Tulane.

I know I didn't get all 130 teams in, but it was hard. Any other suggestions welcome.

Mount Pleasant and the Central Michigan elevation problem

Mount Pleasant, MI. The home of Central Michigan University, Soaring Eagle Casino, and of people that can't tell what a mountain is. When people here the name of the city "Mount Pleasant", their first thought is of a wonderfully pleasant city on a mountaintop. So let's explore the elevations of each town in the MAC
Team City Elevation
Kent State Kent 1056'
Akron Akron 1004'
Ball State Muncie 932'
Miami OH Oxford 928'
Northern Illinois DeKalb 879'
Western Michigan Kalamazoo 784'
Central Michigan "Mount" Pleasant 771'
Eastern Michigan Ypsilanti 719'
Ohio Athens 719'
Bowling Green Bowling Green 696'
Toledo Toledo 614'
Buffalo Buffalo 600'
As you can see, Central and Mount Pleasant aren't even the top of the MAC in terms of elevation, they end up just below center in 7th place. In fact, Kalamazoo is even 13' higher than them!
I just wanted this wonderful fact to be known by everyone as rivalry week continues for both Central and Western. Thank you for your time.

Questions about mid-Ohio (Columbus/Cleveland) casinos

My wife and I have been spoiled living in SW Michigan over the last 10 years. We have 3 casinos within 40 minutes of us and another 2 just over an hour if we drive to the MI/IN line. Most of them have $5 dollar tables at some point during the week/weekend and some all of the time.
I'm deep into an interview that would put me between Columbus and Cleveland. I like that Ohio has no smoking in their casinos. I've been to a Hollywood Casino before in Toledo. Seemed like during the week there were $5 tables before 5 and they go up to $10 or higher at night. I've never been not he weekend.
I read that when Columbus opened their tables were 15/25 most of the time, but that seems to have died down. What are their table minimums like and do they ever have $5 tables?
I haven't been to any of the casinos (Jack Cleveland, or the racinos) so I know nothing about them. What can you tell me?
I looked at the drives from where we would be living. We might look at going to Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh (a city that I love and miss living in). Don't know much about that place as it was built after I moved away. We also could look at Moutaineer RaceTrack in northern WV.
If all else fails, we will look at driving to Wheeling, WV to go to Wheeling Island as we know they always have lower minimums.
Thanks for your information and I look forward to rolling the dice with you.

If you're in Cleveland and find a building with three red doors, there may still be time to save them

Three people are dead.
Countless more are patiently, helplessly awaiting a fate far worse.
I can’t go to the police. The police are a part of this. The police are the ones who killed Darcy. They’re the ones who have Theo -- locked in a cell somewhere or dead, I can’t be sure -- but either way I know I’ll never see him again.
I can’t go to anyone. The implant, whatever it is they put inside of me, reminds me of this. It bulges, perverting the surface of my skin, moving. It’s alive, it can feel and think, and it won’t let me anywhere near it to try and get it out.
It’s too late for me, but it may not be too late for the others.
There’s a certain sense of sacrifice that you learn to give into when you start caring about more than yourself. I’ve always been a self-absorbed person; I’ll be the first to admit that. I used to say “better them than me”. I was the kind of girl who never really thought that anything bad could happen to her so long as I kept my mouth shut, head down, and eyes averted.
Well, so long to that idea.
Here’s to the sacrament for the selfish, that final acceptance of reality.
I guess I should start somewhere, and the cliche “beginning” usually works.
It was just another day. Another shitty, wasted day in the soggy taint of Cleveland, Ohio. My neighborhood has a playground. A Target. A few parks. I lived just down the street from Lakewood High at Chesterland and Madison. My parents always told me to be careful about giving out my personal information, especially online. That doesn’t matter anymore.
Lakewood is a pusher’s paradise. The parks and alleys may as well have big flashing signs, the kind you see outside casinos or carnivals, saying hey: get your heroin right here buddy, step right up and pump that vein full of pleasure. It’s not like the cops do anything except ruin your life if they dare catch you with a dimebag of bud. And if it’s not H, it’s fentanyl. Beggar’s choice, right here. Between the two, we’re on pace to hit over 500 deaths this year in Cuyahoga county alone and we still have two and a half months left in the year. We’re overachievers of the worst variety.
The problem is, there’s nothing to do. And I mean nothing. My friends and I all graduated highschool, puttered around in college, and most of us dropped out to pursue big dreams of doing nothing.
I landed a job working the register at Tower City cinema, shoveling hulking tubs of fake buttered popcorn for the larded masses. It depresses me to think that the last movie I’ll have seen will've been The Girl on the Train. Should’ve gone for Deepwater Horizon like Theo wanted. I will never not think Wahlberg is a hunk.
People will always tell you that your home, your friends, your surroundings, your life; they’re only what you make them. That you have the power to be your own person and forge ahead and not look back, that you have the ability to change the world around you.
What a load of shit. The only thing we’ve managed to change for ourselves is how short the rest of our lives are.
I woke up yesterday morning with an itch, and not my usual one. I didn’t need a fix. I didn’t need a drink. I just needed to get out and do something. I didn’t have work, and neither did Theo or Darcy. One phonecall later and we’re all sitting outside Darcy’s apartment in Kamm’s Corners chainsmoking butts. I’m down to my last three.
“Where do you wanna go?”
I look at Darcy; wearing her sister’s torn croptop, jean shorts, faded black docs, and draped in plastic dollarbin jewelry, she’s got the usual half pound of eyeliner smeared across ever-tired eyes and the red wound of her mouth sneers around a clove. She’s the type of girl you’d drop a trailer on instead of a house and she’d start painting the walls black and call it home.
I take another drag and say, “I don’t know. Somewhere. Anywhere besides here. Let’s drive up to Toledo?”
Theo, from his perch on the back of Darcy’s rusted out Mazda, brays with laughter, “Toledo? Yeah, sure, let’s just trade our plate of dog shit for a platter of slightly more watery dog shit.”
Exasperated, I flick my butt at him, sending a spray of sparks up his pant leg. He brushes them off with a yelp and glares at me. I shrug. Pushing his floppy brown hair aside, he hops down. In torn blue jeans, a studded black bracelet, and too-large flannel shirt resting over a ratty band tee, he’s the angtsy portrait of post-grunge perfection.
“Let’s go break into the Newburgh temple in Miles Park.”
“The masonic place?”
Darcy and I exchange looks and she nods her head. “Sure, why not.”
The drive should only take a half hour but Darcy drives like a blind grandmother on xanax. On the way, we listen to a cassette, a mixtape an ex-girlfriend made her; its trip through the speakers is belabored and scratchy, the sounds of dying relationships and dead mediums.
Anyone who’s ever been urban exploring before knows that you scope the area in your getaway car once, maybe twice, park as far away from your mark as possible without it being too far to run to, and memorize your route back. That’s where we make our first mistake; we forgot where we parked.
By this time, it’s dark out. Dusk is just about 7 PM, and my watch is blinking 7:13. We probably should’ve waited a little longer to head out, but we’re excited and high on the notion that we’re finally doing something other than watching TV and burning glass or shooting dope. I can see the reflection of my pumping heartbeat in my friend's faces, lit up for the first time in a long time.
Darcy stumbles over an uprooted piece of plaster and Theo catches her. They laugh. I laugh. We all hush each other; this area isn’t usually patrolled too heavily, but the idea of running from pigs doesn’t sound overly appealing. The temple sits tall and foreboding against the darkened sky and we make our way around the edges, looking for a good way in. Between a set of broken slats in a boarded-up door, we find it.
Footing our way around piles of rubble and trash left by squatters, we find just the right amount of refuse to sate an explorer’s lust. Darcy comes across an upright piano coated in what looks like ten pounds of dust and runs her fingers across a few keys. The sound is dead and hollow, but still rings out through the heart of the empty building, faintly tinkling in the darkness.
Suddenly, as if on cue with the music, a spotlight hits us head on and it feels like the sun is exploding in my face. I shout, but am quickly drowned out as the sound of a deep, booming voice fills the room with authority and my heart with terror, seizing in the cage of my chest.
“Police!” it shouts, “This is private property. Stop where you are.”
We do stop, but only for a moment before Theo comes to his senses for the three of us, and yells, “RUN!”
As fast as our smoker’s lungs and addict’s legs can take us, we bolt for our makeshift entrance, which is thankfully in the opposite direction of the cops. Out the door, past the fence, in between alleys and through yards, we run and run and run. Whether from excitement or fear or a mixture of both, we don’t stop running for at least 10 minutes. Out of nowhere, we all stop as a group, collapsing against a wall, chests heaving, and find ourselves surrounded by unfamiliarity.
Coughing, Darcy looks around and kicks at the crumbling brick, “Fuck. Where are we? Where is the car?”
Abandoned areas all look the same. You could drop me in a factory wharf line somewhere I’d never been before and I would probably easily get lost for hours.
“I have no idea,” I sigh, “But at least we didn’t get caught.”
Theo glances at me, smirking, “Ya gotta admit, that was kinda fun.”
I hold up my hands, palms out, “You don’t see me complaining.”
“Let’s start walking.”
Ten minutes later, dipping in and out of shadows at the slightest noise, we finally come across something that looks familiar, but in a way none of us could place.
A mile-long, short building, tucked away from the rest, hidden far, far away from the street. Brown brick facade, black metal roof, it looks like a million other buildings in this wasted city. No discernible marks, except for the doors.
In the middle of the side of the building sits three red doors. Faded, peeling, the color is reminiscent of the sky right before the nights sips away its last few breaths.
After a moment of sneaking and prodding, curiosity gets the better of us; Theo, a makeshift criminal when he needs to be, was able to pick the lock on the first door. I don’t know what drove us to even look in the first place, but that’s not important now.
The smell hits me first. That sort of heavy, rotten perfume people get when they’ve been sitting for too long. It’s more than sweat, more than shit or piss or anything else that we produce. It’s fear. Fear of the unknown is a real thing, but fear of the present and the real and the right-in-front-of-your-eyes can turn the human body into a sickening kiln of toxicity. Fear filled that room, to the brim, and we walked straight into it without a second thought.
Rows of steel cages with needles sticking into them like thorns from some massive connected vine sit against both walls of a long, narrow room.
Hidden machines beep in a chorus of monotony from behind the cages, which are wrapped in a two layers of interlaced bars.
Each cage holds a girl.
With shock bubbling in my throat and bursting in my stomach, I rush forward to the nearest cage, gripping the outer lattice with trembling hands. Inside is a girl who can’t be a day over thirteen, but her state makes her look years younger. She’s wearing a thin white dress, a hospital gown, and her skin is perforated by a half dozen needles hooked into bags holding liquids of various colors. She sleeps, a deep fretful sleep, and I can see a trickle of dried blood spilled from both her mouth and nose, joined in a deep v down the side of her face.
Behind me, Darcy screams I can hear her retching, breathing hard, trying to not vomit. She loses the battle, spilling her guts against the wall. Theo just stands and stares.
“WHAT THE FUCK?” she shouts, wiping her mouth with the back of her hand, “WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS?”
The girl in the cage stirs; her eyes flutter open, and I can see that they’re bloodshot, the veins brought harsh and red to the surface of the membrane with repeated strain. She sees me, sees Theo and Darcy, and she tries to grasp for me through the inner lattice, but her wrists rebound on the steel shackles binding her to the wall. A number is burned into her left forearm, #1. Her mouth twists open in a scream, but nothing comes out.
Behind me, all around, there’s more shuffling, more rustling noises as the rest of the girls come to. More clinking of metal restraints, more mouths hanging open in muted pleas for help.
I slam my open palm on the wall above the cage, my skin burning with anger. The girl looks up, startled, and that’s when I see the jagged, fresh scar across the base of her throat.
The sound of silent screaming is something I have never heard, but can still hear all too well in my head.
Darcy runs to the wall opposite me, grasping at bars, and tries to pull them apart to no avail. I scream for Theo to help us, and he rushes forward. He can’t pick any of these locks. The deadbolts stare back, malicious, hungry, unyielding.
My eyes flit up. The plaque above the girl’s cage reads:
#1 -- A. Lange, Saxony, DE -- E. 10/08/16 -- C. 10/10/16 -- S. 10/16/16
I look around, eyes trailing helplessly on the ten cages lining the walls of the room, and they all share a similar plaque. Each has a number. Each has a location and three dates.
I don’t know where the realization comes from, but it hits me like a freight train. Each cage has a name, but not the name of the person inside. The buyer. Entry date. Shipping date. Some date in the middle.
A fire of rage tears through my body and spills out of me in a furious stream. I look around for something, anything I can use to break apart the cells. There’s nothing.
Then, the door bursts open and spotlights hit us once again. This time, there’s nowhere to run.
As the cops pour through the door, slamming Theo into one of the cages and pinning me against #1, the girls rise up in a seething wave around us, straining their bodies against their cuffs until the metal bites straight through their skin. Darcy is screaming, screaming for the cops to look, look around them, but one of them just rushes her and tears her arms behind her back.
She wriggles free and manages to grab his gun. My cry gets caught in my throat as I watch her raise her arm, pointing at the cop nearest me, and she fires off a round, the move catching him by surprise and the round catching him clear in the throat. The force of the shot pirouettes him, turning his last moments into that of a twisted ballerina, and blood sprays across my face in an almost beautiful arc.
As she turns to fire again, a blast goes off next to my ear, deafening me, sounding like the last shot at of the world, and a gaping wound appears in the center of Darcy’s forehead. She falls forward, and for just a moment, everything slows down and I can see the wall behind her, speckled with blood and bits of bone and grey matter, clear as day through the new hole in her face.
The last thing I see before the blow to the base of my skull steals my consciousness is girl #1’s eyes; they’re a soft brown, and they’re full of tears, full of fear. They’re full of emptiness.
I awaken, I don’t know how much later, unable to move. My eyes shoot open and I’m temporarily blinded. Everything is freezing cold, smells sterile, and the taste of copper fills the air like it’s got something to prove. I can’t move my head, can’t budge my body. My fingers and toes are the only thing that seem to respond to direction.
As my eyes adjust and the white light begins to fade, I realize I’m looking up into the rude face of a halogen. Out of the corner of my eye, I can see a grey metal edge, the piece that’s holding my head in place. My throat is burning and my lips are cracked and dry. I run my tongue over them, and realize my mouth isn’t bound. I open my it to scream for help, but no sound comes out.
Straining my head up as far as it can go, pushing my chin out without moving my head, I feel the fresh stitches pull taut against the skin above my collarbone.
Like a hellish angel, a face appears above me, blocking out some of the light. Goggles, a surgical mask, white apron and light blue scrubs. Another figure appears next to it, its appearance mirrored. One of them makes a gesture towards the other side of me, and its partner goes to fiddle with a knob on a machine. I feel a strange euphoric sensation rush my body, and darkness comes, blissfully, once again.
I woke up just past four this morning next to a dumpster outside of the UHAUL near Berea and W. 114th in Cleveland. My body is different. They did things to me, put something under my skin. I assume it’s a tracking device, but every time I get anywhere near it, something inside of my brain stops me. I can no longer speak; I try, but no sound comes out. There is a number branded into my left forearm. I am number 7. Lucky.
It took a little while for me to figure it out, but I think the third date in the sequence, between the entry and the shipment, was the date of recapture. If I’m right, I only have one day left.
My name is Theresa Bell. I’m twenty-three years old. My friend, Darcy Wilson, 22, is dead. My other friend, Theodore Albright, 27, is either missing or dead.
I will not let myself end up in one of those steel cages, strapped to a wall with mystery liquids pumping through my veins, patiently awaiting my shipment off to god knows where. There is no hope for me. I’ve lived my life a selfish person, a wasted person, ready to give into anything that brought me the most minute, instantaneous amount of pleasure.
However, before I take my own life, I can make one final decision; to make this plea in the hopes that the right person will see it, and do something.
If you're in Cleveland and find a building with three red doors, there may still be time to save them.

  • [Day 182.1 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 1 - YouTube]
    • Good to get back to the slides to sum up the reporting. A lot of knocking on doors and visiting places in the last couple of days so. Here's my conclusions:
    • What I see Hillary doing with ISI and business leaders is sort of the same thing Rockefeller did with the Pinkertons: in the same way that the Pinkertons cleared the rail lines for the Rockefellers and the robber barons--ISI is clearing the ratlines for Hillary, and that group of investors.
    • I went to Cleveland, I went to NY, to Chicago, to show these different places to Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, to show these different ratlines, and show how it was happening: how these ratlines were being created, how they were collapsing neighborhoods, streets, creating cheap real estate purchasing opportunities and that's what I want to talk about today. Which is using these ratlines to collapse neighborhoods, streets, taking advantage of local populations and then pushing them into lives of crime getting them involved in loansharking, getting them involved in drugs and so forth, and buying real estate on the cheap as the final coup-de-gras.
    • With respect to the Cleveland Clinic, I'm going to point out Tom Glocer. Tom Glocer is a longtime Hillary supporter: one of her key supporters in fact. He is one of the key people doing the real estate investment in NW, the lakefront properties, in Chicago, the NY area, as well as Cleveland area, and Michigan area.
    • Kind of is the: I would guess the real estate baron. Of course he's on the CFR, of course he's a trustee of the Cleveland Clinic.
    • Really this is the last step in this process of collapsing an area, collapsing a street: a hospital as a non-profit buys it, a lot of public money is then used to pay for the facilities that come in, whether it's hospice care, nursing care, cancer care all the different things the Cleveland Clinic does.
    • I take all the IP out and move that to Dubai do training of my poeple overseas to be doctors, not that it's not great to train doctors in the UAE, but I believe that doctors should be trained here in the Cleveland Clinic. We really shouldn't be worried that much about repressive regimes and their economies when they are swimming in money, if you look at the skyline of Abu Dabi you can see they aren't hurting for cash: they don't need more economic development from the Tom Glocers of the world.
    • Am I saying Tom GLocer collapsed the neighborhood on 185th and killed those car dealerships--those people running the car dealerships--for Hillary? No of course not saying that.
    • I'm just saying is that when real estate ppl like Tom Glocer create an environment where gangsters like Dawood Ibrahim, to allow Ibrahim to run an international crime syndicate in PK. He owns 9 homes in PK, he has been responsible for the bombing of Mumbai in 1993, 2007, 2017. Long time contact with PK ISI. Uses the PK 111th for all those bombings in Mumbai. Owns five star hotels in India still.. Owns 9 homes in PK. Huge investments in the UK. Now that Indian intelligence services is tryiing to get him out of India, he's investing now--through the Tom Glocers of the world, through real-estate investment trust--so there's a sanitation layer--into these areas that Tom Glocer is talking about.
    • When the Andrew McCabes of the world allow their friends to invest for any reason, any amount of money, no questions asked, where there's no check on the money laundering, it creates this type environment where you open it up things to gangsters. Al Capone said what one great regret do you have? "Well I probably should have bought a bank." He didn't think that to make bank profits, He said that because he wouldn't have been caught on tax evasion: he would have been able to cleanse the money.
    • What Andrew McCabe is doing is creating an environment where gangsters can invest in the United States. When you create investment opportunities for people like this they don't care when a nice couple who have been in business for 33 yrs get executed on 185th avenue. All they care about is building that casino on 185th avenue, or building that hospice care clinic; or building that new cancer clinic, or EM facilities; or some kind of drug rehab along that Golden Route on the way to Cleveland Clinic with Methadone centers and treatment centers.
    • It's impossible to predict the future, but from everything I see, it reminds me so much of Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, Chicago-- this is what creates the Homen Squares:
    • You create an environment where lawlessness--no check on International money laundering--and it's going to find it's way through real estate investment trusts, through the Tom Glocers of the world. And you're going to find that 185ths are going to be repopulated with some kind of Methadone clinic; Suboxone outpatient facility.
    • I wanted to draw that parallel today.
    • Again, I don't have solid evidence that Mr. Ibrahim here, who is a longtime friend of Benazir Bhutto btw, and built a home next to Bhutto's son and chums around with Bhutto's son.
    • I"m not saying this long-time Hillary supporter is directly investing in Cleveland clinic and his plans on the other side of lakeshore boulevard
    • I'm saying when you have a Mccabe not checking the International money laundering, letting Gulen have 43B dollars in Malaysian Banks with no-check, it creates the environment for the Ibrahims and Glocers of the World.
    • This morning I'm going to be going to a lot of the different crime scenes in Cleveland today and moving on.
  • [Day 182 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 2 - YouTube]
    • This isn't the fun part of the job, let me tell you.
    • I'm at the Mr. Cars dealership again
    • This is the corner: you can see the blood spatter pattern where someone was executed. I believe that probably was where Mike was executed. I'm not sure, but the Dusenberg photo is awry just above the corner there.
    • Looks like he had some tools out, etc. I'm guessing those are his glasses
    • There's a broken chair in the foreground.
    • It looks like with the spatter pattern, there's a U shaped area of solid material in the corner, and lighter spatter on the right wall, and on the lower corner of the door there is a blood pool there as well.
    • So I don't know if that meant Trina was shot on the way trying escape to the back door--that's what the Police are saying
    • There are several things that don't make sense about this murder
    • First of all there was a dog, they owned a doberman
    • They were killed sometime between 7 and 10 o clock. The dealership was closed at 6 so why on a Fri night would they stay here much beyond closing? Hard to understand how they would stay much beyond 7 o clock if they were doing accounting and so forth. {{esp 33 yrs in biz, they'd leave right at 6:01pm, and do late-fri stuff on monday}}
    • The other piece to this is: wouldn't the dog start barking? If you had 2 doors, one here and one over there--wouldn't the dog start barking if an intruder was coming into the location? Wouldn't someone have heard on a Fri night (if the dog started barking). This street was at one time fairly popular for pub crawling.
    • It would still be light out, it would still be 7 o clock--that doesn't make a lot of sense.
    • Then there's the question of the mercedes. Why did the story change from the mercedes being stolen, to a 1990 Tahoe being inserted later on that was sold the prior week. The cobalt 2006 mercedes seems like it's still a part of the story, and somehow has been dropped from the story.
    • The other question still remains why did the BMW that was taken from here and went 100 blocks and was recovered in a police-stop. And the person who was stopped had a series of prior-arrests...why was that person let-go by a lowlevel police officer, rather than their name and picture being published?
    • If a person had that car, it's hard for me to believe they would have had papers to show they had purchased it. And even if they had, what would have stopped the killers from asking for purchase paperwork and backdating it before they killed the couple?
    • It makes sense to me that the thieves/burglars would steal a late model mercedes. It doesn't makes sense they'd steal a 1990 Tahoe.
    • The other piece to this that I'd like to see more information is the autopsies. Whether Trina was raped or not in the backroom. I believe 4 or 5 different people were involved in this. And somehow separated the two, acted as car buyers potentially, knocked on the window, gained entry somehow.
    • You still have the issue of shooting the dog, the dog barking, there's a tremendous amount of commotion, you can see the chair being broken, pieces all over.
    • If you look at this neighborhood, this is quite out-in-the-open. This is all glass [store front is all large windows], in every direction. There's also a garden center [which is also a hydroponics store] -- they would have been able to see across the street from 7-10 o clock, I can't imagine friday night, them not being open.
    • People would have passed by here. People would have been making phone calls. Cellphone records have not been released.
    • There's a 7500 reward here. Of course I will never accept any money of any kind, I will only donate it to Judicial Watch if the killer is found
    • I believe we have to solve this crime and bring back some civility to these cities.
  • [Day 182 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 3 - YouTube]
    • I'm at a bird sanctuary in Toledo OH up on the Lake Erie and I used to come up here to Cedar Point near Sandusky, so this is a bit west of the on the way to Toledo
    • Looking into the car dealer that was associated, near the Cleveland Clinic--even if that is a completely unrelated case to anything having to do with Hillary Clinton and the ISI, one of the things I knew going into it was one of the board members Tom Glocer was a money-mover.
    • He moves money and he moves technology to Dubai.
    • It just doesn't seem right that a key guy on the board should be moving so much technology and money to a foreign country. Especially a foreign country that is so wealthy like Dubai. With some of the tallest buildings in the world. It seems odd there's this back and forth with the doctors. It seems odd that there's this organ harvesting traffic in Turkey and Iran and the northeast corner of Iraq. The ratlines just stink to high heaven.
    • So any time I see a guy like Tom Glocer on the board of a large medical institution--a guy who ran Reuters, and took every Reuters investment advisor and ran them through Ann Arbor, Michigan to try to convince them how tax-free real estate investments in the US was the best way to go bringing in people from all over the world--then I also have my doubts.
    • Tom Glocer also I believe has two daughters that are each married to--I'm not going to say PK ISI--but definitely Dubai-connected Pakistinians. **One of them might be Javed's son. Mr. Riceland, Sugarland Express.
    • So in all these things, when I start these out, I know there's an end in mind--I know there's a connection. And I'm trying to find it through connections and leads that may help solve murders and stop this kind of ghettofication of our cities to be sold out to other countries.
    • I want to thank everybody who helped in the Kuznik murder case. Another 5k has been added to the reward. If anything we've added some light instead of just heat or just emotion to an investigation.
    • This is how it's done. This is the success to me of opium medium research {{erp! George fumbles with a funny spoonerism}} -- "Open Media Research" also. Sometimes you have to research "Opium" to do "opium medium research" I guess {{ haha, George you're the best }}
    • On to Michigan
  • [Day 182,4 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 4 - YouTube]
    • I feel good about this trip to DC, NY, Detroit, Montreal, Toronto--I feel like the hard part of this is done
    • When Glocer at Cleveland Clinic, it really comes back to what I call the "Dubai ISI"
    • Imran Awan--and if there are other Awan brothers--they really not Pakistani ISI. I had that impression in my mind, but it was too big an entity for them. They really don't care anything at all about Pakistan. Every action that I've seen, it's really this club of tight, rich kids running around using spy tools that John Brennan and Andrew McCabe has given them for a very small Emirate within the UAE, a super-rich element of cocaine-snorting, model-dating rich kids.
    • I was wrong: I thought this was a Pakistani ISI thing, but it's really a Dubai, or to a lesser-degree an Abu Dabi ISI.
    • A little bit of money goes back to COMSATS, a University in Lahore, PK
    • I think the father, Mohammed Shah, had a lot more care and concern for Pakistan.
    • But the kids don't..I've seen ZERO concern for PK. And so I apologize to PK ISI, they helped us defeat Russia with the Mujahadeen with Graham Fuller: This is really the Dubai ISI with Glocer.
    • I feel like the Dubai code has been cracked.
    • The Cleveland Clinic code has been cracked. I think now the Mayo Clinic will come quickly, Temple University will come quickly, Johns Hopkins will come quickly.
    • All the major organ harvesting ratlines will come quickly, all the major the sex trafficking ratlines will come quickly.
    • I feel really good about that.
    • At this point I feel, if Andrew McCabe decides to take me out of the deal {{ ie: ⌬McCabe⌬ has George 'suicided' or killed }}, the hard part's done--I feel like we're post-Gettysburg now. The easy stuff awaits us.
    • Because, before yesterday, I was talking about Cleveland Clinic--which is 24 board members
    • Today, I'm talking about one particular board member who sold out the United States, who moved money in massive quantities and processed it, and laundered it through Dubai, through Abu Dhabi and brought it back to the United States with these tax-free re-developments, using these hospitals to buy up this land.
    • Al Capone used to set off bombs in bars that wouldn't buy his hooch. Toward the end, he started killing these mom and pops that wouldn't buy his hooch and that's when he collapsed. It's kind of the last gasp of a dying empire.
    • I believe the Cleveland Killings, the Kuznik killings is really the last breath of a dying empire--when you have to kill mom and pops you're on your last leg
    • I feel very good about the trip. Like I said if McCabe takes me out at this point, I feel like it's just a matter of time for him.
    • I remember at the end of the Nuremberg trials, it was a lot fewer people than you thought--it was a lot of people taking orders, a lot of people being intimidated, a lot of people following orders, really was a very small number of people who ended up in the trials, under 150, and I think only about 30-40 actually got prosecuted. I think it's going to be the same way.
    • We're down to individuals now. We're beyond FBI Counterterrorism--it's such a small clutch of people within the FBI counterterrorism now, with McCabe and his clutch of people, with Brennen and a small clutch within CIA.
    • So at this point we're just adding a preponderance of evidence.
    • We're kind of a Nuremberg trials for a lack of a better analogy.
    • That's all for today and tomorrow will be another day
  • [Day 183.1 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 1 - YouTube]
    • Quick recap -- I'm not 'retiring' just retiring from Sunday yesterday.
    • I want to keep going to RT because they can't keep blowing up Parliament every day that RT writes a story about this. It just can't happen. I think everybody might remember the last time--what happened they turned the lights out in NY
    • I think RT's the one to run with this, since they are the ones being attacked
    • I think John Brennan is gonna be the loose thread here. It's going to unwind Mr. McCabe pretty quickly and then the whole thing falls apart.
    • What's great about the Dubai and Abhu Dhabi connections and getting away from PK is all the money connections--this is where the other side of the drug business is coming. This is going to be the Javed side of the business.
    • Looking at the PK side was a little confusing. I should have thought of Zero Footprint and Timber Sycamore coming out of the UAE from the very beginning
    • I kind of gave Imran too much credit. Not looking at the fact he was playing the role of the playboy and all these parties at the UAE
    • I had talked to witnesses who knew this group of 36-40, however many it was. I believe I've identified one of the members of the gang--the PK 111th, and I should have listened. The callous disregard for life, the parties, the cocaine, the girls, the fast cars, all that stuff--I should have listened to this source in Montreal more.
    • I wanted to go back to Tom Glocer he's going to be the key, not only through real estate investments--the arab real estate investment in the Hopitals to launder that money, but he's also going to be the key to the drug companies' investments--he used to work at Merck. While he was at Reuters he brought in all these people from the middle east, at least investment advisors from the middle east to try them to buy into Hospitals to launder the money. I talked about the different ratlines. I'm sure that the hospitals would bring in related businesses around the hospital, like the pain clinic, the spine clinic, the knee clnic, the outpatient clinics, the imaging clinics, all the 'Christmas tree of businesses that come along with investing in the hospital'.
    • What I wanted to say also is to introduce Sheik Zayed. He's one of the Emirates, basically families that didn't get to be king of Saudi Arabia in Abu Dhabi. He was one of the Emirates--Dubai has their own Emirate.
    • Sheik Zayed was the one who came up with the idea: in order to get on the map of US Intelligence, let's organize, and unite as these Emirates, and become the UAE.
    • His sons are going to be the 2 key investors now--[Sheik Zayed is] dead now--through Glocer, in laundering the drug money.
    • Over here you have Dawood Ibrahim doing the dirty work, and then moving the money through the UAE
    • This is the part I love in the research. It focuses the research. The research gets better with more citations. Once the working model becomes solidified and valid, the research becomes even better--it's like a refining, electron [microscope] zooming in on the truth.
    • The other great part about this is the Democrats want to keep this issue alive. They still want to have Imran Awan working for Debbie Wasserman Schultz doing the hacking. This is a current problem today as I speak. It just draws more and more attention
    • The fact his younger brother was paid 160k a year at 22 as a foreign national, is a glaring problem. If nothing else--if we stop right here, this is a midterm election issue for all these Democrats {{ corruption, selling out americans, and waste }}. And they just keep hitting their thumb with the hammer over and over again.
    • Nanoset technologies--there's more there but I won't ruin the fun
    • We also have more coming in on all the proprietaries they created, so the Entity analysis, people doing the link analysis I want to thank you--that's coming, we just can't go there just yet.
    • The Entity analysis and linking with Nasir Khattak--he's the guy who had the car dealership directly next to the car dealership owned by the Awan brothers. Literally right next to it--it's an obvious front. They changed the address patterns so you couldn't find it. It's so cheesy.
    • Mr. Solyndra II here with his Microtron company: he's going to be the key to a lot of the business investments--not the Hospital investments--but more the business investments, the high tech investments, bringing in the money through Reuters, and other overseas advisors into the US, and then laundering.
    • Whatever happened to Omar Awan? Haven't forgotten about him, but he's completely moved out of his commuter home in Manassaas. He's moved out of his Fredericksberg home where his kids were going to school--that's a big deal. That's the wife as well as the 3 kids--they were going to Fredericksberg HS--why the flight to NY? I believe he's working in the investment banking community now.
    • The bounce between NY and DC, depending on where the heat is, is usually the operative thing that's going on there--Schumer will hire you up there to get out of the heat...when the heat's gone then you go back to DC and do more hacking / bring more people in
    • On the EBT Card thing: you're going to find this all over the country, encouraging people who are addicts to come in, and get 50% on the card as cash--I"m not saying that's for drugs. I'm saying that take that and then go buy stuff from the convenience store. But what I am saying, though, is it's a network to recruit from. This is more the recruiting network for ratlines.
    • I didn't mean to let Graham Fuller off the hook yesterday. He did do Gladio B. I'm not saying he's without sin. Yes he did help Gulen move 40B to Malaysia, yes Hillary did move 1.5B to Malaysia.
    • I haven't forgotten about Detroit, I just don't have time right now
    • Last thing on the car dealership [Kuznik]. This car dealership murder is going to be the same as the Manassas Mahmood in Richmond: You're going to find an ISI guy hiring someobody like MS13, in this case I think it's going to be Somalis. Two Somali couples. One couple buys the BMW with the wife Trina, the other couple buys the Mercedes with Mike and distracts everybody. They shoot the dog and Mike first, then shoot Trina later in the back. The girls go outside during the shooting, they cover each door. The one couple takes the BMW down to 48th and Dennison and that's where Steve Stephens is going to kill them (they're going to find the bodies eventually). Then the other couple is encouraged to drive to Erie, PA for their payout, to go over state line to PA, and I think that's where Stevens kills the other couple.
    • Unfortunately, these these kids don't realize that when they get hired into these murder-for-hire things the ISI kills you at the end, the way that dead men tell no tales. So I think you're going to find 4 there.
    • So when Stevens said he killed 13, I think it's going to be those 4, and I think he did 8 before a year ago down in s. Ohio again with Somalis with the 8 Rhoden kiilings. If the sheriff down there would release the information and the tips, I could tell you whether it was MS13, Hells Angels, or Somalis. I believe it's going to be Somalis because that's in Columbus territory.
    • Anyway, I don't want to get into the John Kasich and his mother being from Yugoslavia, and the organ harvesting, and how that happens under John Kachich's nose in Columbus
    • I just want to say it is the Somali gangs. Again these are kids brought in from a war torn situation, they are 5-6 yrs old, they are forced to execute people, they've killed 20 people by the time they're 12, so they're perfect people to bring into the US as operatives.
  • [Day 183.2 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 2 - YouTube]
    • {{ minor correction for clarity's sake: George says 182 part 2, it's actually 183 part 2 -- these videos are single-take so bound to be errors like that}}
    • Fort Wayne, Proof of life -- as Obama is talking at the University of Chicago, I hope someone asks about my brothers with a little bit more melanin than I, and why they are disappearing in such numbers at Homen Square.
    • This is a shoutout to UC kids: ask about Homen Square.
    • Why didn't he shut it down?
    • What's going there?
    • Does he have any ideas?
    • Homen Square: ask the question
    • Other things I wanted to say was in terms of this search engine.
    • Watch this search engine go now once we focus on two key terms, "Glocer" "Zayet" {{"Zayed" ?}} family from UAE
    • Watch this incredible search engine that you've all created go to work and bring out all the different hospital contributions and expose all the money laundering and ratlines
  • [Day 183.3 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 3 - YouTube]
    • Andrew McCabe just spoke at the CSO Summit 2017, so I wanted to send this to #CSOSummit17
    • He spoke about law and order, he said, "you know at the FBI we focus on the law and facts"
    • I know he's in charge of the Huma Server and the Hillary Server, so I also wanted to make him aware of the server that the Awan brothers had--these three Awan brothers that were working for Congress. This is Imran Awan but there are 2 other brothers as well. If you are not familiar with the case, I'll briefly review it for you.
    • McCabe-McAuliffe recap; McCabe obstruction of Justice recap
    • So while we're lecturing on law and order and facts, I thought I would make Mr. McCabe aware of some of those facts
    • Why isn't FBI investigating?
    • US Marine testimony recap
    • So there's the facts, Mr. McCabe. Now it's your turn to decide what to do with them.
  • [Day 183.4. Hillary'Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 4 - YouTube]
    • I start thinking about Imran Awan's salary.
    • I wasn't always a self-funded journalist.
    • I had some good years selling computers and computer software.
    • I had about ten years where I was paid about what he was making in taxes, and I don't know if could cover all four brothers, four brother, the full four million or five million, but I could have covered Jamal's time in terms of the taxes I paid while he was in Congress because he was there only a couple of years making 160k. I paid quite a bit of money in taxes.
    • This is an odd situation.
    • The irony is that...maybe the poetic part of it.
    • McCabe sitting over at the FBI can order up surveillance, a deep dive they call it. ELSUR. They can order a deep dive on somebody that cuts across the Dyncorp backbone of 30 different agencies. If you owe taxes, if you own land, all your electronic communications, your email, your texts. Then they can throw the hammer down on an operation on you, with the harassment thing: hire private corporations owned by their brother, these 6922 independent, private corporations that Dana Priest originally reported on, that are supposed to be doing anti-terrorism.
    • This is kind of the deplorables list that Hillary had. Without doing an assessment--because it's a liaison operation, it's through a foreign service, I dont' have to report on it--so I can do the electronic surviellance, I can order up the harassment, do the disruption, and never have created a job.
    • Mr. McCabe has had public employment his whole life. He's never created a job.
    • Imran Awan and the brothers have only come to the US since they were 22 as foreign nationals, making 160k a year while everybody else in Congress is making 40% or 35% of what they're making I just thought this is interesting you know, it's an interesting turn of events. That's all I'll say for tonight.

Schedule announced for Hollywood Poker Open

Hollywood has a reputation for producing blockbuster movies, but over the next couple of weeks another type of event is expected to take place here. Poker players are enthusiastic about the prospect of spending a couple of days participating in the Hollywood Poker Open. In 2014, the number of American players expected to attend this tournament is significantly higher than one year ago, which means that the competition will be more intense. Some of them have honed their skills over the Internet and poker rooms such as Sky Poker, but only those who reside within the borders of New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada can play legally. Things will probably change in 2015 and beyond, but for the time being live tournaments represent the highlight of the month for poker players. Season three will begin this November, in Indiana and players should jump on the bandwagon because the next stop is scheduled for February. Those who miss out on the opening event will have to wait three months, which is a long time for those who appreciate the thrills of live poker tournaments. Last season, the Hollywood Poker Open sent many players to the championship event, with a total of 200 competing for real money. Both amateurs and poker professionals are expected to attend the opening event and even more will probably participate in the tournaments scheduled for 2015. Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg in Indiana will be the gracious host for the first tournament and the registration has already begun. The number of players who announced their intention to participate is on par with the expectations, but their numbers will probably soar as kickoff draws near. There are a couple of professionals who signed up and Chris Moneymaker will be one of them, as a tournament ambassador for season three. To get a better idea about what awaits poker players in 2015 and to make sure that your schedule doesn't conflict with the tournament's program, check out the dates and locations below: Dates Location Nov. 13-23, 2014 Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg, IndianaFeb. 5-16, 2015 Hollywood Casino Toledo, OhioFeb. 26-March 8, 2015 Hollywood Casino Tunica, MississippiMarch 26-April 5, 2015 Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, Grantville, PAApril 16-26, 2015 Hollywood Casino St. Louis, MissouriApril 30 - May 10, 2015 Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races, West VirginiaMay 14-24, 2015 Hollywood Casino Columbus, OhioJune (TBD) Championship Event — M Resort Casino Spa, Las Vegas

Questions Answers
¿ What scarred you for life? The one thing I will NEVER forget is a young girl who hung around on the weekends. I had a suspicion that she was younger than 18 but she claimed she was 18. When I asked to see her ID, she showed it to me and it looked legit (holograms and what not) and said she was 18. I come in one weekend and ask where she is because she was not around. It turns out she was a runaway who got sucked into the sex trade which is rampant in Ohio and was shipped down to Columbus. Guys were passing her around upstairs for 10 bucks a pop. She was 14. I felt fucking horrible for not trusting my gut. I guess I will tell you something else since I already posted something about a young girl who was a a runaway and was passed from guy to guy for 10 dollars a pop. Another instance involved another prostitute. She was legit mentally handicapped, could barely function. She started showing up towards the end of my time there. She was passed around as well but I believe her rate was 5 for sex. Apparently she was having a heart attack and a guy just put her in the elevator and pressed the down button so she would come to the lobby. The elevator opened and she was obviously in need of help. I laid her down and called an ambulance. It turned out it wasn't a heart attack but she turned out to be alright and showed back up later that night.
Since when is the sex trade rampant in Ohio? Toledo is a huge hub for interstate human trafficking. I will find some stats if I get a chance. I'm not insulting Ohio, it is just that you can get to somewhere like 75% of the country within 24 hours from Ohio. http://www.examiner.com/women-s-issues-in-toledo/recent-study-cites-toledo-as-fourth-worst-city-nationally-for-human-trafficking-offenses.
Did you make friends with any of the people there and what did they think of you? Oh yea of course. There were about 150-200 residents there. I tried my best to help everyone. When I first showed up they thought I was a cop because I was white. There was a guy James who would come and mop the lobby every night at 3 AMish. We built a pretty strong bond. I helped him make a resume and he eventually got a job because of it. I found out that he had never eaten out at a breakfast restaurant so I took him to breakfast one morning after I got off and he had a blast. The funny thing was he ordered a burger and fries for breakfast. There were plenty of people I made friends with they were usually older than me though.
What can you tell us about your views on systemic problems? That is, on a macro scale, what problems do you see with the overall system (i.e., the governmental response to poverty via the policing system/war on drugs, welfare system, social services, education, etc) that have impacted the lives of people where you work? Do you have a sense of what changes could be made to improve these people's lives over the long-term? As with anything else on the macro scale it all comes down to money. These residents cant afford to pay 1000+ dollars of rent every month so they are ignored. Columbus is also trying to gentrify the west side where these projects are so they are in talks to blow this building up because they dont make money off of it. The police really could give two shits about this place. I called the police plenty of times and it would take them an hour or more to show up. That's what pissed me off the most. They would show up, write things down and leave. Even if we had video footage they would say that a detective would be there Monday to investigate and the detective would never come. This happened twice. If you do not have money you are fucked. The fucked up thing is that say a person who is paying 20 bucks a month in rent gets a job. Their rent immediately goes up to about 460 dollars a month. Most jobs residents got were minimum wage so how are you supposed to work you way out of the system when the system keeps taking any money that a person makes. I do not see a wide spread change such as tearing the building down and giving residents housing assistance working for everyone. I talked to residents all the time about how life could get better and it seemed like a more micro approach would work.
460 dollars a month? I live in Columbus and that's more than I pay... Is that comparable to other apartments in the neighborhood? I am not sure. From what I saw while I was driving around that part of town there are not too many other apartments. The location is ideal though. Downtown Columbus is a half mile away. Like I said rent was on a sliding scale, however I did not dig deeper into how they decided those rates.
Did anyone ever lie about if they had a job to keep their rent down? Yea...I even advised a few to do so...
What was the racial makeup of the residents? Racial makeup=80% black, 19% white, and two mexican guys.
Was there ever a time where you saw someone being treated unfairly or being taken advantage of because of race, age, ethnicity, etc? If you saw this, did you ever feel compelled to do something about it? Could you have done something about it? The Housing Authority (CMHA) really treated these people like dog shit. Most residents barely paid rent. Rent is paid on a sliding scale so some residents paid like 20 bucks a month but that might have been 50% of their net worth. Anytime ANYTHING went wrong in their apartments (flooding, heat not working in the middle of winter, AC not working in older residents apts in the summer) residents had to wait until monday. I did my best to hound them until they sent someone out. Sending someone out meant paying overtime and they were too cheap for that. Maybe three times they sent someone out in the year I was there. I tried to help and have basic mechanical skills but I am limited in my abilities to help.
So you saw a lot of misery. But with 150-200 people there, and you with a (remarkably) open compassionate attitude, I'm guessing you also saw some good people trying hard to make good lives. Can you recall some things that pleasantly surprised you? Oh yea there were plenty of people who just had slipped in life and they were working hard as fuck to make it back in their lives and when bad shit happened to them I just felt horrible because I knew they were working. One big success story was that guy James who mopped the floors, he helped out anyway he could around the building. Whenever pipes would burst he would be there to mop up the floor and put buckets down. He would wash and wax floors. He got back on his feet. Got a job. And because of all of the work her put in around the building the building manager actually paid his rent for a year. I would say 2/3 of the residents were hard working people who either were injured or just kept fucking up and ended up there.
What was the most dangerous situation you were put in? There were plenty of times I had to defend myself. One time in particular a couple was walking into the lobby to go up to their apartment. Another couple came up behind them (who did not live there) and tried to snatch the ladies purse and beat up the guy. I hopped over the desk and had to "L" the one guy out until he agreed to leave. I saw his lady Friend reach into her purse and pull out a knife at which point I let them go. They left and I called the police. I believe they were caught later. I HATE bullies and to see that just pissed me off.
What is "L"? It is a choke hold. Looks almost like a sleeper hold. One arm goes across the throat and the other one behind the head. It immediately shuts off the airway.
"L"? Sorry it must be something we called it growing up.
Kill niggers. The funny thing is, the couple who was doing the robbing was white..
What? o.o. I explained it above, it was a chokehold. I am sure it has many names.
Its a TJ Strongbow lol. Styx is the Gweatest Amerwican Wock Band, and the only Weason they caught a bad Wap was cuz most critics were cynical Assholes.
*cwitics. Damn autocorrect.
What was the biggest moral decision you had to make there? and how great was the racial tension between you and the majority black population there? Moral decision....that is a tough one. I would say always just trying to remain unbias no matter how shitty a particular resident had treated me. I was threatened pretty much on a weekly basis. I just brushed it off. But the next week they would usually be apologetic (and sober) and would ask for some kind of help. There wasn't too much racial tension. It wasn't like they hated me because I was white. Once they got to know me and realized I had grown up in Baltimore and was not just some rich ohio state student they started to accept me. However I was called "cracker" and "honky" on a regular basis and I had to explain to them that this wasn't "the jeffersons" and those words dont sting anymore.
What was the craziest thing you saw? There are a lot. I wouldn't say this was the craziest. I mentioned my craziest in a previous post. A particular resident was really off the hook. Let's call him E. He was addicted to crack and would wander the streets all night and just steal from people (how this guy survived this is beyond me) but he would show up every night with a cart full of stolen goods/shit he found in the dumpster and try to sell it to me. I started calling him Bubbles but he didnt get the reference. The craziest thing was probably this twenty something year old guy who had alot of women in and out of his apt. One day during the day shift (I wasnt there but saw on camera later) a girl came and started arguing with him in the lobby. He beat her within an inch of her life. Closed fist punches and everything. Once she was on the ground he booted her right in the jaw. Teeth and blood were everywhere. When I had gotten to work I noticed the stain and asked the working second shift what that was and he said it was the womans blood.
"He just waltzes in there, and becomes the king of the carts. What the fuck does he think I'm supposed to do? " Yea man I am from Baltimore, so any chance I get to quote the wire. I take it. I actually did a project at OSU which involved videos and references to The Wire...
What is the story that you would most like to share with us? There are plenty of stories. There was alot of crazy stuff there. I mentioned some already. One story that comes to mind was with this resident nicknamed Frog. He was hooked on crack. Right before I left he got hooked on bath salts which is a rising craze among addicts because it doesnt show up on piss tests. He attempted to commit suicide and almost jumped but the fire dept saved him. While I was there two people jumped (1 survived). Two guys died from medical reasons. One guy died from going fishing on a boat while drunk as hell and falling in the water and did not know how to swim. A lot of misery there.
What do they do with bath salts and how does this get one high? Haha I am still learning tryin to figure it out. From what I have been told you snort em and it is just like a coke high. I hope your not gonna go out and start snorting haha, shit will fuck you up.
Was there a housing police force that policed the area? If not, was it just the city police force? Yea, they came by usually once a night. But they were pretty much rent a cops even though one was cool and former Air Force. They were not armed. Pretty much stopped by every night around 2 AM to take a shit in the employee bathroom haha.
>One day the cop arrested CT for a humble. Do you mean that the cop's intent was to humble CT, or is "humble" some kind of slang for an amount of drugs or something like that? Its slang, sorry its habit. It means a minor misdemeanor charge (i.e. disturbing the peace etc.)
What is the drug scene like in a project high-rise? Is it run of the mill crack and impure heroin? Or since it's Ohio is meth a big deal? Not much meth. Mostly crack and heroin. We had dealers come in and pay residents to move in with someone else so they could just set up shop in an apt and people would go right there. They would usually last a couple of weeks and word would get out and they would either leave or be kicked out. Like I said the police were useless. While I was working, there were two big drug guys everyone would go to for their shit. One used to be a cat burglar who would pay hookers so he could go down on them (not the other way around haha), and the other was more of a stone cold dealer, never talking unless he needed too and people respected him.
1) Did the residents ask you for money/handouts? 2) Did you ever give money to residents? 3) Ever get mugged/robbed or items stolen while on the job? 1.)ALL THE TIME! haha. every night it was "hey john, you got a dolla?" Usually people would come with four quarters and ask for a "hard dollar" because the dealers didn't like change 2.) No, I would sometimes give change for a dollar if i knew they were using it for laundry 3.) No but someone did put nails under my tires so that they would go flat. One of them did, I was lucky all four didnt. I was careful to keep all my stuff locked up and my car within sight in the parking lot.
>Hey john, you got a dolla I need dolla dolla....dolla is what I need.
Did you ever have to take the witness stand in court for something that went down during your shift? After that attempted robbery the columbus police took my info but I was never called. The guy who was working during the beating of that woman was asked to be a witness but turned it down. He was changing jobs soon and didnt want the hassle.
Good luck, and congrats. My wife's an LISW, MSW, from OSU. edit I had asked first if graduation was in June, then remembered OSU is switching to semesters, from quarters, and it all made sense. You going to go to grad school at OSU? No. I am moving back to Baltimore and going to grad school at the University of Maryland. Not at OSU. They are still on the quarter system so technically they have 3 or 4 graduations a year. I planned it so I graduated this quarter so I can get a jump start on getting a job.
This is off topic but I'm thinking about joining the military to help pay for college. Are you happy with your decision to do so? I do not regret the experience. I do regret not being more prepared to handle my recruiters. The GI Bill was def worth it but make sure when you go in you are doing what you want to do and not what your recruiter nudges you to do. What branch are you considering?
<3 BC. Moi aussi.
Did you like Seattle? Loved it..I was a lacrosse coach on bainbridge island...I have a lot of great memories out there.
Were the police shown the video evidence? what did they say about it? What is the reasoning behind them not making an arrest? Yes they were shown evidence...they said I detective would be along Monday to investigate further....no detective showed up....it happened multiple times.
Jeez. How many justified arrests were made while you worked there in comparison to all the crime that was going on? Honestly, one. A guy named E who I compared to Bubbles from "The Wire" was arrested one time for selling stolen goods. It was some shameful shit. Cops were there almost every weekend but no arrests were ever made.
Sounds weird.. but has someone ever died while you were working? Natural or otherwise? Oh shit...I almost forgot. This did happen. I think my second month working there. A woman came in looking for her brother. I called up to his apt but there was no answer. She said that no matter what he always had lunch with their brother every saturday and he had not shown up or answered his phone. I got a sinking feeling when she said that. I called the police (this had to happen for me to go into someones apt without their permission) they came and I opened the door and saw this guy laying there. He was dead and I had to go down there and console his sister and nephew.
Oh man, that sucks for them. You ever find out what it was from? He had heart problems. I asked around and people told me it was a heart attack but I never saw a medical report or anything.
So what's the solution? There is no solution really. I could take it on a case by case basis but it is up to the people to want to change. Believe it or not some people loved that existence and did nothing to better their situation no matter how much I tried to advocate for them. They would just keep making excuses. It's sad really.
If you had the capability, would you dust off and nuke the whole site from orbit? No haha, although after some rough nights I wish I could. I did joke that we should somehow get the drug dogs into the building for a surprise raid and I would sit outside in a lawn chair drinking beer and laugh at how many drugs are thrown out the windows..
My dad worked at a liquor store across the street from the projects, he always had a gun on him, in plain sight did you do the same? No I never carried a gun. I am pretty good with my hands (boxing, wrestling etc.). I know the corner store workers by the projects here had a gun. A guy came back pissed off because the store owners pulled the gun on him for apparently no reason. I didnt believe the guy at first but I could see how distraught he was. I felt bad for him.
Which do you think comes first; homelessness or addiction? Addiction definately. Most of the residents were referred there from a local shelter called the faith mission. None of the ones I talked to that used to be homeless were clean while they were homeless.
Sorry, read through a little bit more and wanted to ask another question. You're from Baltimore, where the drug trade and problems with the city was much publicized by The Wire (and David Simon in general). Then, you worked in Columbus, which I think most people would be surprised had a ghetto at all. Anyway, do you think the publicity of Baltimore's inner city helped it? Does Columbus struggle to get help/resources because of an out of sight/out of mind mentality? Or, do you think it has no effect at all? Lastly, I'm assuming you're white because of your white flight comment. Did race play any role in how the tenants treated you? The only thing "the wire" helped was to open up people's eyes to a society they had no idea was 10 mins away from their fed hill rowhome. I have not seen any reform or resources thrown to the west side of Baltimore since the wire came on the air although the ports which were focused on in season 2 seem to be doing a little better. Columbus's west side has its own reputation which is very well known. Politicians know about it. However right now it is going through a gentrification process. A casino is being built and I believe 2 public housing complexes have been destroyed (dont quote me on that figure, I know of one for sure Riverside Bradley). The projects that I worked in are scheduled for demolition but the date keeps getting pushed back so who knows. Some resources such as section 8 housing vouchers are being thrown their way but besides that there is a long way to go. FInally race did play a big role at first and in time that dwindled. At first they assumed I was a cop because I was white, and then people took a long time to warm up to me which I expected. After they realized I was not just some rich Ohio State University kid whose mommy and daddy paid for everything they warmed up to me pretty quick. I said before that racial terms like Honky and Cracker and Whiteboy were thrown around but they never affected me.
So, I notice a lot of negative questions, which is normal, but as someone who spent years living in and around the projects I always was impressed by the underground economics of the place. The residents are seriously very ingenuitive and find interesting ways to make money (fixing things that are FUBAR, getting ppl. free cable, making homemade meals for lunch etc...). What are some interesting ways you saw people making money? Also, as far as gangs go, did you notice the gangs and other organizations helping to police the community, or in your eyes were just making everything worse? Oh many the economy of the projects was amazing. You nailed it. People would make money doing anything. Some people would clean your apartment. There was one guy who would fix your car, another who would wash it. Women would do your hair. One sign I saw hung up offered to actually bathe people (this included a foot scrub and cleaning behind the neck haha). There was always a way for people to make money. As far as gangs go, there was not too much activity in the actual project. Dealers were there, however gangs were not their muscle at least in the building. In the surrounding communities they were active. However the dealers did try to help the residents. They bought a TV for the lounge area, they would order the boxing fights and throw parties, and they would order pizza for random people and sometimes even pay peoples rent. However if you got in debt to the dealers you better believe you would do your damndest to pay them back. As long as you were on their good side you were fine. However, I have digressed. To your question of self policing, most of the time this is what happened. People would fuck up and others would either help or punish whoever was involved. Police were called quite often but it was mostly for minor squabbles. I hope I answered your question.
Did any of the statues or props in the inner city houses come to life overnight? Naaa I dont think the golden tablet was there...probably stolen by one of the fiends and pawned.
To my knowledge there is really only one true high rise projects in Columbus, by osu east? Is this where you worked? Assuming you went to osu, how would you compare where you worked to the section 8 around campus? The one I worked at u can see it from 315. It is called sunshine terrace. I'm not sure if there are others..its on the westside by mt carmel west. I did not hang out too much by the on campus housing I live up in Dublin. So I can't compare.
Also a question. ive done work with at-risk kids in these kinds of projects. Are there any programs in place by you to help keep the kids off the streets, and out of the whole poverty cycle? There were not any kids in these projects except for maybe those that visited on weekends. We had one little guy call 911 and hang up in the lobby and all kids of cops and fire engines showed up. I do work with at risk youth at my internship and there are alot of programs to help them get off the streets. Two are LiFE Sports and Camp Mary Orton's Wilderness bond program. Both can be found online..
Why is it relevant that you're white? Its not. I was just putting it in the title to get people's attention...it worked.
Did you ever have any homo erotic experiences with any of the people that lived there? Aaaaaaalllllll the time....jjjjjuuusssstttt kkiidddiiinngg....there wasnt too much man love but I knew for sure three gay guys who lived there....its not exactly the most welcoming demographic.
Were there any kids growing up there? No..kids would visit on the weekends and stuff but there were no kids living there.
Mine is..... Nice...just recently discovered the band I love their shit. Although you could be a Dicken's lover haha.
Why did you feel the need to call out that you are white? Gotta be honest on this one. It was kind of a big deal with people around here knowing that I was a white guy working in a predominately black housing project. I could care less either way but it was just habit I suppose..
