GSL highway sign vandal self-identification

July 5, 2013

 

So, last night as I’m just about finished grilling a steak and potatoes for dinner, I get a call from a snarky gentleman who took time out from his Independence Day to call me and show his ass.

Here’s the email I sent to GSL’s Board last night.

A white male in his early 30s, give or take a decade, called me tonight at 8:19pm from 314-620-4880 and bragged that he fired shots at one or more of our sign sets at an undisclosed location.

He said it would be better if our signs were oval instead of rectangular in terms of their utility as targets “as we put up these stupid signs all around”.

I thanked him for his self-report and noted that it is a felony to criminally damage our signs.  Upon conviction, he won’t have to worry about owning guns to shoot our signs.

A little sleuthing finds his name is Tony Burns from Kirkwood, MO.

A quick search finds that he is known as “ripitupinc” on MidSouthMX.com forum.

One of my fellow board members inquired if this might be our Tony Burns:

 

What did this particular Tony Burns do?

He sexually molested a 14-year-old girl.

When he was 41-years-old.

The offense was committed in Kentucky and “ripitupinc” posts that he likes St. Louis and Kentucky.

Coincidence?

Doubtful.

So, it would seem we have a registered sex offender bragging that he’s shooting our signs.  Sounds like it’s time to call or email the Fenton, MO police and have them sniff around.

John

 

 

UPDATE:  Message sent to St. Louis County Police.

    Aside from felony stupid, and the destruction of GSL property- it’s irresponsibility of the highest order to go shooting signs such as these. “Know your target and what’s beyond” and I’m quite sure GSL doesn’t install appropriate backstops behind their signs. I say a call to the police in the area of said vandalized signs is order as well, since this fellow just admitted to reckless endangerment and unlawful discharge of a firearm.

    Every once in a while, a guy like this makes the hopolophobes right … *everybody* most certainly should not own a gun!

    (A nice end note to this would be a ‘tip’ to his future cell mates about the sex offender thing. I hear they really like child molesters in the joint.)

    Well done! Everyone should know that if you call from Skype, the caller ID is a number in Ca. of Skype, never the number that you are calling from. Just some interesting info for everyone reading this.

    Time will tell if this guy is the same as the sex offender, but it kinda makes sense that somebody who victimizes other people would oppose their right to carry a firearm.

    One of the guys marching against gun rights here in Ohio last year was quickly exposed as a convicted rapist. I really do think a lot of the anti-gun movement is self-interest among the criminal class.

      I agree with you, and most of the “criminals” are POLITICIANS! Where in the world can you go that requires their politicians to swear (upon the Bible) as a requesite to obtaining public office, to “support and DEFEND the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic” who then illegally work to infringe upon our God-given, Constitutionally protected RIGHTS!
      CRIMINALS ALL!
