Fat Olney freak an embarrassment to the countyPosted by Jack Howser on Friday, June 22nd, 2012 @ 10:21 am.
And now, as I pointed out during the Brandon Jenkins trial in early May, it appears O’Neill has gone from p.i.t.a. to borderline dangerous.
During the trial, when we were outside awaiting jury deliberations on the evening of May 2, O’Neill of course saw us sitting in the vehicle in the parking lot of the Richland County sheriff’s department and made a beeline for us. Since Ang was doing the update at that point, and couldn’t be disturbed by O’Neill’s moronity, I distracted him by moving about three vehicles away and motioning him over to me. We were standing in the company of some folks from Jasper County who were familiar with idiot O’Neill, but saw the seriousness of the situation, so they went along with me (O’Neill has an inordinate fascination with Ang and has in the past posted the most obscene and horrific comments about her on other websites, one of the many reasons he’s barred from this one).
While trying to keep him from bothering Ang, we kept up conversation with him….which, on his part, immediately turned to vulgar and lewd comments, something he’d never really descended into before until about a year and some months ago. O’Neill spoke of a “sexual torture dungeon” he had in the basement of his house. While it was difficult to follow him (it’s damn near impossible at times, as he never talks in coherent sentences, only garbled phrases), it became clear that he had mastered the ability to describe repulsive sexual content in conversations, and was attempting to get a response out of us.
This is O’Neill’s M.O. In the past, he has always sunk to verbally harassing someone about whatever the subject matter for the year that appeals to him might be (recently it’s been the “within 15 feet of a business entrance” smoking ban in the state). The point of this harassment is to provoke someone into attacking him. In the past, this has happened repeatedly, with many people finding themselves charged with felony battery (Aggravated, because O’Neill always stands on a public way) for merely losing their cool in the face of O’Neill’s ongoing haranguing.
However, since just a couple of years ago—when we actively began calling a spade a spade, and pointing out that O’Neill is a nutcase and people should simply avoid him, not be afraid of him or lose it and attack him—the attacks on O’Neill have slowed to a stop. So apparently, he has come to realize that he’s going to be ignored. And this, it appears, has prompted him to ratchet up the obnoxiousness a little bit….well, okay, a LOT more. Hence the repulsive sexual overtures he seems to be inclined to make.
When he was standing outside the Jenkins trial making these references, the guys I was standing with by and large ignored it…although the wife of one of them was standing there too, and it was obvious that we were uncomfortable with what he was saying. However, it was a little more than that. It occurred to me—a person who is painfully familiar with O’Neill, having covered several meetings for years, at which the oaf appears in order to spout his gibberish—that O’Neill was speaking of things that weren’t just silly mendacity. The nature of his references was very, very disturbing. And it didn’t seem to be innocuous, either. It all seemed threatening.
Fast-forward to the ensuing weeks.
The girls repeatedly reported that when they went to Family Video, O’Neill was always on the street corner, harassing people. It wasn’t that he was just standing on a public sidewalk, distracting traffic by waving inane signage or wearing a wedding dress or an American flag. He was actually leaving said post and approaching people in the parking lot—usually young, good-looking women who were in the company of one or two very small children. In other words, vulnerable people out of whom he could get a “shock” reaction. The girls have thus far been able to avoid him, by being very careful where they park and what they wear when they go there (hair up in ball caps, loose, unattractive clothing, etc.)
This apparently didn’t work for a woman this past Monday.
According to listeners in scannerland, O’Neill, clad only in a speedo (as you see in the above pic), apparently approached a woman and her daughter, and began his vulgar harassment. Some sources are saying they understand the report was that O’Neill partially exposed himself to the two females. They subsequently made a complaint about it. Apparently there has been nothing done whatsoever. And the likelihood that there ever will be is, of course, in question, as local authorities don’t want the responsibility that comes with incarcerating O’Neill, since he’s on so much psychotropic dope to help whatever his mental problem is that the county would go broke paying for it…not to mention the injuries he inflicts upon himself when he’s put behind bars (in 2004 or 05, he repeatedly ran himself into the bars of his cell until he busted his head), as well as the ensuing lawsuits he puts the county through when he feels he’s been “wronged.”
O’Neill is another construct of the local inept constabulary as well as the incredibly inept prosecutor in the guise of David Hyde. Because no one will take the bull by the balls and crack down on this nonsense, O’Neill has gotten out of control. Now it’s going to come to the point that since he’s not getting the responses he wants from those he’s harassing, his efforts are going to intensify….and in his case, what’s intensifying are apparently his perversions, whatever those are. The very fact that he’s parading around like a blue whale stuffed into a skimpy swimsuit is perverse enough….as are the subject matters he’s been discussing with perfectly sane people…as are the habits he’s developing on his favorite street corner. So what will happen after this, frighteningly enough, remains to be seen. Let’s hope someone takes action, no matter what that might be, and bring about a resolution to this problem that’s been plaguing Olney for decade after decade, in the form of a pest at a public meeting, a nut on the street corner, an unstable person running for office repeatedly, or whatever the case may be.
