Mysterious Writer Says Obama Voters 'Going to Hell': Best of the Blotter

Here are some of the weirdest police reports and incidents from departments across the region.

Here are this week's most bizarre police calls, reports and charges. All information was provided by police reports from departments in Patch communities. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

An ideological threat — Political tensions are high between some Lakewood residents, and not just because of stolen signs.

Several residents in the 17000 block of Narragansett Avenue told police about a note they received in their mailboxes on Oct. 26. The writer said they would be "going to hell if they voted for President Obama in the upcoming elections.”

The author remains unknown, and police have been asked to stay alert for more incidents.

Sleepy break-in — Cuyahoga Falls Police arrested a man who is accused of breaking into another man's home and sleeping in his bed this week.

A resident woke up around 4 a.m. Thursday to find that his home had been broken into. When officers arrived, they found 22-year-old Jacob S. Parker asleep in the resident's bed. Parker, an Akron resident, became violent when police tried to wake him. He was then tasered.

Officers also saw Parker's car parked in the driveway with the driver's side door open. The car contained items belonging to Parker's girlfriend, who was at home and intoxicated.

He was arraigned Thursday at Stow Municipal Court on charges of burglary and resisting arrest.

Unwelcome gestures — Police say a Mantua man got intoxicated before making women uncomfortable inside a Twinsburg grocery store and in the parking lot.

A woman called police on Oct. 24 to report a man who allegedly licked his lips while looking at her and her daughter as he drove up and down the parking lot aisles of Giant Eagle. Police found an open beer can in 21-year-old Steven Negrich's truck, but the man was already inside the store by that point.

Officers said Negrich was "staggering" around the store. He denied making the gesture, but admitted to drinking the beer.

A pharmacist also said that Negrich entered the woman's restroom while she was using it. She said he stood in the room and smiled at her before exiting.

Police arrested Negrich on disorderly conduct and intoxication charges.

When I was growing up, I was taught in Pentecostal Sunday School that Mormonism was a CULT and if you were associated with it, you also would burn in Hell! So all you Mitt Romney Robots better be careful with your vote, TOO!
Jason Mason November 05, 2012 at 12:14 AM
You are so right, and the reason is lack of education and plain old brainwashing by the church and Republican Party. Look at the statistics from the "red" states; they generally have the lowest I.Q.'s, the least high school graduates, and ironically, the highest number of welfare recipients. They are so buffaloed that they vote loyally for the same Republicans that plan on taking away or reducing their benefits! They are NOT the sharpest knives in the drawer!

so there is little difference between Billy Graham and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. And you guys talk about low IQ's.

Yes ... given time and theocracy. But Christians aren't taking over the US government — because we won't allow it to happen. It starts as a trickle and becomes a tsunami — this & that violation, plastic baby jesus on the court house lawn at Xmas, slipping 'under god' into the Pledge of Allegiance, adding "In God We Trust" to the currency, prayer in schools, annexing the uteri of all women, abandoning science & medicine for 'prayer & healing', burning gays on crosses — but it won't happen. We won't let you.
jim guls November 05, 2012 at 02:38 AM
and you went to church yeah
Tom Mcfalls November 05, 2012 at 02:54 AM
Its a stupid statement no matter the time. The rest of your comments don't deserve a comment. Its silly to think displaying the Infant Jesus during Christmas is taking over the government.

Its been a real treat reading and blogging about the up coming election. It so wonderful we live in a country where we can voice our thoughts rather we agree with the other person or not. But, think when you go to poll. America is the most diversity country in the world. We may have a awful history But I personally dont live in the past centuries. I live in this one. There will always be the RACE card played by ( white) liberal and Africian Amercians There will be black panthers / kkk and other awful gangs. But all in all majority of us LOve this country. and those who use our consitution and bill of rights against use are fools. We have the best wonderful armservice people in the world. People who blog well your kids will be going off to war if Reps get in office. REALLY and you think if there was a dem in office we wont REALLY . People going to hell for how they vote. Well I guess we are all going to hell then. One thing we have and that is our own FREE will given by GOD.(or who ever you do dont belive in. Its been fun. I guess as my wife and I will be going to hell because as Independent senior citizen WE ARE VOTING FOR ROMNEY because I nor my family can take another 4 years of socialist ideas. I love my freedom I love my country I love my fellow Amercians. I would like to say thank you vets and armforces police and to their family for the most courages men and women they have raised. GOD BLESS YOU

We should be proud of both candidates. They are impressive men, but both offering different policies. In my opinion, we need to reform spending, taxes and the government. We are all agreed on the need for tax reform. Any recall what the original purpose of the AMT was? Yep, to make sure the "wealthy" pays "fair share". Now its nailing the middle class and filled with loopholes. Many have asserted Romney's tax plan favors the rich. "Romney's idea for capping individuals’ tax deductions at $17,000 would impose a burden that would fall hardest on the wealthiest taxpayers, who make the most use of the breaks." http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-10-03/romney-17-000-deduction-cap-first-of-three-part-proposal.html I think ironic that we were all focused on Romney's, Buffet's and other wealthy folks low tax rates just a few weeks ago. The reason the wealthy pay such low rates is because of our outdated/bloated tax code. Imagine those making over $1 million paying a flat rate of 20% vs 14%, etc. We need a simpler tax code. Spending? See CNBC's "Are we rich or poor?" debate (worth watching): http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=1604902615 When I google CBO's long term projections, the current system is unsustainable. http://bipartisanpolicy.org/projects/debt-initiative/about And government reforms? Let's see, SEC & Madoff, Dept Mining/BP, etc. The gov't has turned into a DMV filled with tenured jobs. I'm FedUp.

Romney can’t be trusted, as Republican leaders, media and experts agree! Gen. Colin Powell, a Republican and Sec. of State under President George W. Bush: “I’m not quite sure which governor Romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy.” http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/10/25/1086721/powell-romney-foreign-policy/?mobile=nc Politifact: 42 percent of Romney’s comments in recent months have been false, much higher than Obama’s comments. http://www.politifact.com/personalities/mitt-romney/ Salt Lake City Tribune, largest daily paper in Republican and Mormon-led Utah: “Romney (is) willing to say anything to get elected.” http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/opinion/55019844-82/romney-obama-state-president.html.csp Rick Santorum, former Republican Senator: “This is someone (Romney) who doesn’t have a core.

The people voting for Obama per Huckabee will go to hell, the people voting for Romney will go to the same place that the Catholic priest go to that raped and abused children (Catholic Heaven). The church plans on making them all SAINTS
JByrd November 05, 2012 at 05:03 PM
There's been spinning on both sides keeping in mind our "media" is liberal. Romney's Jeep ad merely states they are planning to make Jeeps in China. Some are saying not true "since not at the expense of any US jobs". This makes no sense. What Romney is saying is true. The question is whether that Jeeps should be made here and exported to China vs made in China. I've heard from many (including our President during the last debate) that Romney "would have liquidated the auto industry". CNN Reality Check: Erin Burnett clarifies the "auto bailout" spin from the media. Let's start with the allegedly Romney NY Times Op Ed entitled "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt". HE DIDN'T WRITE THAT. His title was something like "The Way Forward for the Auto Industry". The horribly pathetically biased NY Times wrote that title. This is the first time I've heard this. Amazing. Romney merely proposed an orderly bankruptcy. Guess what, that's what ended up happening after taxpayor funding. A bankruptcy. Here's the CNN link: http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/bestoftv/2012/10/26/exp-erin-romney-2008-detroit-bankruptcy-oped-john-podest-andy-card.cnn?iref=videosearch Literally trillions have been spent by gov't and fed to stimulate the economy and this is where we are. See CNBC's "Are we rich or poor?" debate (worth watching) to understand my concerns: http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=1604902615 Please please please do research before voting.
jim guls November 05, 2012 at 09:44 PM
same palce as those voting for Obama hahaha
jim guls November 05, 2012 at 09:45 PM
and Obama can ????? WOW you been listening to the liberals news again.
Richard Ian Tracy November 05, 2012 at 10:05 PM
Yes -- it's been well-established that reality has a liberal bias.
bob lang November 05, 2012 at 10:14 PM
What is wrong with you people? You are the second wingnut poster today that doesn't know how to spell the name of the citizens of our great country.This is America and we're called Americans. It's also Armed Forces not armforces. If you really cared about America you would get it right.
Richard Ian Tracy November 05, 2012 at 10:19 PM
No, no ... intelligence also has a clear liberal bias. (-:
Tom Mcfalls November 05, 2012 at 10:56 PM
Jim Don't pay attention to the typical left wing arrogant jackasses. They don't care about this country. they are just mad because they aren't european.

Quote from Republican Senator and Canidate for President Barry Goldwater "Mark my words, if and when these preachers get control of the (REPUBLICAN) party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these CHRISTIANS believe they are acting in the name of GOD, so they can't and won't compromise, I know I've tried to deal with them. Republician Barry Goldwater Also both I and my wife and family are PRO CHOICE

Bob Lang Are you an english teacher??? Why do you waste your time correcting people on this site ? The insults you call them are far more serious a problem than their spelling . Did you ever stop to think that maybe they caught their mistakes but did not bother to fix them? I see you making these corrections often? If you think you are proving something , you are right !!! but its not what you think.

I think you meant "uninformed", not "UNIFORMED"; "to control" not "TOO CONTROL"; "a government" not "AN GOVERMENT". However, you have proven your point about the parlous state of education in this country.
