Remember this disgusting so-called man?

Back in November 2013, Tyler Smith announced to all of America on NatGeo’s “Doomsday Preppers” of his grand plan for emergencies: to dress up in homemade armor and use his guns to shoot other people and steal their stuff.

In a story with the local Buckley, Washington News-Tribune, Tyler Smith bragged:

“We’re not in it to stockpile. We’re in it to take what you have and there’s nothing you can do to stop us,” Tyler Smith says. “We are your worst nightmare, and we are coming.”

Oh, it got better!

Most preppers, Smith says, are concerned with marauders taking their supplies. It’s not an unfounded fear, he says.

“We are those people,” he says. “We’ll kick your door in and take your supplies. … We are the marauders.”

O’Rly?  Put your drink down because there’s more…

As part of his strategy, Smith and Pedrini are developing a suit of armor to wear on his foraging forays. Smith says his homemade protection will be bulletproof, lightweight and stronger than anything sold in a store.

“It will also make me the apex predator in my area, and that’s all that matters,” he says.

The pair used salvaged and bought steel and aluminum. A steel grill from an old security gate makes up some of the protection. Smith wants the suit to weigh from 80 to 100 pounds.

Smith used bathroom tiles wrapped in woven fiberglass and coated in roofing tar as one of the bullet-stopping layers. The suit must survive bullets from .22- and .30-06-caliber rifles and a 12-gauge shotgun, he says.

So, Tyler’s gonna be the APEX PREDATOR with his 80-pound homemade suit of armor made from fiberglass, roofing tar and used bathroom tiles.

Look at him.  Does he look like an apex predator?

We can’t believe Darwin hasn’t already claimed this idiot.

Anyway, the latest news in Tyler’s life isn’t good.

He won’t be needing his homemade roofing tar suit anytime soon.

Turns out Tyler is no stranger to taking what doesn’t belong to him.

He’s also got a thing for “communicating with a minor for immoral purposes”.

Translation:  He’s a felon and registered sex offender who shouldn’t have any guns.

BUCKLEY, Wash. (KIRO-TV) — When Tyler Smith of Buckley appeared on National Geographic’s reality show “Doomsday Preppers” he did so with rifle in hand. Smith, 26, shoots at targets and tests homemade body armor while narrating his exploits for the camera.

Smith is the leader of the survivalist group Spartan Survival. He founded the organization in 2005 to train and prepare others for various doomsday scenarios.

The problem is, Smith is a felon, convicted of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes and theft. He’s not supposed to go anywhere near a gun.

“Even if he doesn’t own the guns, he can’t handle, have those weapons, fire them (or) possess them in any way,” said Pierce County Sheriff’s Detective Ed Troyer.

After spotting him on Doomsday Preppers, Sheriff’s investigators began doing some preparing of their own, getting a warrant for Smith’s arrest and picking him up Wednesday morning at a home in Bonney Lake where’s he’s been staying since he left his farm in Buckley.

We’re curious why he left his farm in Buckley.  Hmmm?

Smith was prominently featured in a segment that aired in November 2013. On the show, he is seen firing several rifles to test his home made body armor, claiming it is superior to professionally made bullet resistant vests. “It’s going to be light weight and stronger that anything you can buy in the  store,” Smith said on the show.

He also bragged for the camera about his plans to raid and loot other doomsday preppers’ supplies when the end times came. “All your shiny AR’s your high powered .308 rifles, your 50,000 rounds of ammo are all going to be ours”, Smith warned.

All his guns and shiny cartridges are going to be Pierce County’s it would seem.  And local residents are probably safer for it.

Pierce county investigators say it was those claims, and Smith’s brazen use of firearms on camera that landed him back in jail. “What led us to this guy was himself. He put himself on TV and in newspaper articles and he did things that scared the neighbor,” said Troyer.

Smith is a level one sex offender following his conviction in King county in 2009, but he has not registered with law enforcement since his move to Pierce county. Troyer said he could face an additional charge of failing to register as a sex offender.

  1. Oh Well! This is just proof that it is better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you are an idiot, than open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    Bye Scumbag

  2. There are 3 take home lessons here:

    1. The system works – at least to some extent – as a felon and deeply disturbed person has been deprived of the tools to carry out his goal of hurting others.

    2. Darwin’s law doesn’t always work. However, I have a feeling that this particular reprobate is about to be made into someone’s pretty little girlfriend – effectively eliminating him from the gene pool.

    3. Don’t commit crimes on network TV.

  3. Do stupid people KNOW they’re stupid?

    Does this clown actually BELIEVE in his heart of hearts that he’s a genyoos?

  4. This idiot is the reason I got off the couch and learned how to shoot like a Rifleman at Appleseed.

    I’m not a Rifleman yet, but I shoot 100% better than I did before my first Appleseed.

    If that disgusting fatbody comes towards me and mine dressed like the Michelin Man in his bathroom tile suit, we’ll test how bullet resistant it is with my CMP Garand. I’m guessing he won’t fare well.

  5. Like ^^ I’m glad I better know how to use *my* guns to defend the missus and me thanks to training. I didn’t go to Appleseed like him. Maybe I should.

    The thought of an ass like this shooting me and taking my stuff pisses me off.

    And he’s a sex offender, trying to molest kids. Why is that not surprising.

  6. He’s is going to get a new “REALITY” in jail about what is going to be taken from him.

  7. This man is an idiot! Personally I would not want to turn my back to him. That said… Please remember that before the 1930 Unifrom Federal Firearms Act and the 1968 GCA this man would not be denied his 2A rights. Yes he is a fool and I wouldnt trust him around children. But he is not in prison and hes not in a mental hospital. This is going to rub some of you wrong but The man should be allowed to own a gun.
    Please understand liberty, just because this man is an idiot doesnt mean he doesnt have rights

    1. I understand liberty, he is a convicted felon. he likes to steal and was obviously working on destroying a child’s life threw sexual abuse and when you do things like that you get stripped because your a danger to everyone. he ruined it for himself and anyone who tries to molest a child needs to be executed because they are dangerous. this society is more worried about taking the rights from the rabid animal than it is about the horrific damage they do to others.

    2. Bill the man is trash in my eyes i wouldnt want to be around him. But he was released, meaning he paid his debt to society.
      What you are talking about in law is called the “Slave of the State”
      We the people are sovereign, our rights come from God. A God given right can only be taken away at the gallows. (this was fitting of the crime of our boy wonder)
      Please read Founding father Willaim Rawle book “View of the Constitution”
      If we are willing to accept tyranny for things we dislike then how much tyranny will we put up with?

    3. Part of “paying his debt to society” is losing the rights of a free citizen, such as the right to vote and the right to keep and bear arms.

      He knew that one of the punishments for his felony convictions was that he had lost the right to possess a gun.

      He chose to violate that condition, proving that he remains a criminal in act as well as thought.

      He is exactly where he belongs: in a cage.

  8. This bag of garbage was convicted of trying to molest a child less than 5 years ago so why is he out on the street ? plus he has a record for stealing things, why is he not in prison ? thank the liberals for this waste of oxygen. I have an idea…. execute him.

    1. You are correct why is he not in prison?

      But if he paid his debt for his crimes then he has the right of a free man.

      Thats the way it was before the passage of the 68 GCA and FOID card laws.

    2. There is more to “paying his debt to society” than merely being locked up for a few months.

      The right to keep and bear arms is a right of free citizens. Not of convicted felons who have demonstrated — twice in this case — that they are not willing to live peacefully and legally among other free people.

    3. Anyone who harms a child should get no second chance. Pedophiles are repeat offenders and should be put down.

  9. I find this man disgusting. His original punishment in my opinion did not equal his crime, but he was set free/released. To continue his punishemnt after his incarceration is a form of slavery and violates sovereignty. That means he must have “ALL” of his immunitities and privileges restored. If your willing to except tyranny for something you dont like, then how much tyranny are you willing to except?
    I dont care for this man but I understand our “UN-A-LIENABLE RIGHTS” and I really fell sorry for those that dont
