Whoa woah whoa - are you kidding me? This guy was stabbed to death? We have seen John's vids here on Spiked in the past! I remember we watched some of his vids where he was documenting the ongoing harrassment with his video cameras. He even caught them using infrared cameras. We had a long discussion about it in the comment thread - about his video cameras and security measures and whether or not he was nuts. I remember writing something like

 

"If you have that kind of security and a bunch of cams set up all over the place seems inevitable that you would draw their attention. So not surprised he caught them monitoring him in infrared."

 

And now he's been murdered? Wow thanks for bringing this to our attention SpikedLegend. Haven't even watched most of it yet just still stunned that it's THAT guy. I could be misremembering and this is a repost and that's why I remember the infrared van and all that. But I don't remember the detail about him exposing their scam or being murdered - just vids of him complaining about being watched by cops.  

 

 

These FreeFRESNO dudes have some pretty tense vids on their channel - is this really a Police Officer or is this fake (seems like a dorm somewhere)?

The Fresno County coroner has ruled the death of a man found in a burning central Fresno home in January as a suicide.

Fresno police originally reported that John Lang, 51, had been stabbed in his abdomen and upper back on Jan. 20. Homicide detectives began investigating.

Tony Botti, a spokesman for the Fresno County sheriff and coroner, said Thursday that Lang had “three superficial, self-inflicted stab wounds” to his chest and no cuts on his back, despite initial reports by law enforcement. A more detailed, official coroner’s report will be released sometime next month, he added.

Botti said investigators believed Lang started the fire himself.

 

Fresno police Lt. Burke Farrah, head of the department’s homicide unit, said the confusion about the wounds was the result of incorrect information released at the scene by Lt. Joe Gomez, the department’s public information officer. He is waiting for the official coroner’s report, but he said that information gathered during his detectives’ investigation also pointed to suicide.

“Joe made a mistake,” Farrah said. “This is an aberration. Typically, we are very careful.”

He continued: “When you start from a false premise, that’s what allows this to spin out of control.”

Final coroner's report ruled the cause of death as smoke inhalation, which it would have to be if those stab wounds were superficial. LOL - Imagine a conspiracy to kill John and make it "look" like a clumsly hoax fake-murder attempted by a mentally unstable man who actually committed suicide. "We'll make it look like he was trying to frame us and just committed suicide." 

 

One thing seems compelling - there were some odd things happening outside his house. That camera thing was weird. Did the police ever confirm that they were investigating John for anything?

 

Hold the PRESS - this just gets more and more STRANGE AS FUCK - check this out: http://whm.sevillalocalmedia.com/jerrydyer/index.php/2017/11/21/did-fres...

 

So there are some folks, including the group Anonymous apparently, who are convinced Lt. Jose Moralez did not drive to Chief Jerry Dyer's home, stand outside his truck, and blow his own head off. What the fuck is up with Fresno?

I'm honestly not suprised by anything in CA anymore. I witnessed enough myself first hand. Cops showing up to say happy birthday to a coke dealer's party at a bar was the first real eye opener when I moved to the bay area. It really is all about who you know and what game they are playing.

It goes on everywhere, even in small Canadian towns. Drug prohibition corrupts all within its grasp.

True, but Fresno sounds scary as a MF! Too many corrupt idiots who don't give a fuck running the show it seems.
