Victims’ families, residents protested Dahmer walking tour back in 2012

 A walking tour of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer’s old haunts was set to begin back in March of 2012. The tour took place in Dahmer’s old neighborhood, Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point district.

The Dahmer tour was met with much opposition. Relatives of Dahmer’s victims opposed the tour along with local residents. Local politicians tried to put a stop to the tour but were unsuccessful. Organized by BAM Marketing of Wisconsin, the tour group’s rights were protected under freedom of speech and the fact that the tour group would be visiting public places.

Walker’s Point Associates President Victor Ray was urged by one of Dahmer’s victims’ mothers to try to get the tour’s organizers to cancel it. Ray met with the tour’s organizers to try to dissuade them from proceeding with the tour, but was unsuccessful.

BAM spokeswoman Amanda Morden insisted the tour’s purpose was to explore Dahmer’s crimes as part of history, in the same way as documentaries and books about the case. “Whether we like it or not, it’s part of our city’s history. It’s part of our nation’s history,” Morden said.

VISIT Milwaukee tourism group refused to promote the tour. Spokeswoman Jeannine Sherman said the group did not want to bring attention to a person who hurt the community as much as Dahmer did.

Ray also felt that, although the case was 20 years old, the timing was inappropriate since many of Dahmer’s victims’ families are still alive and residing in the area. Morden felt that enough time passed to allow for an objective discussion of Dahmer’s crimes.

Other groups have organized tours based on famous cases such as The Boston Strangler, The Manson Family in California and Jack the Ripper in London.

Reportedly, six people bought tickets and showed up for the first Dahmer tour along with reporters and protesters.

The protest was nonviolent and included citizens as well as family members of the victims. One of the protesters was Janie Hagen, the sister of Richard Guerrero, who was 21-years-old at the time he crossed paths with Dahmer and was never seen again. Hagen wore a button with her brother’s picture on it and said she came out to “speak for my brother.”

“This sort of thing. I’ve dealt with it before,” Hagen said, referring to various types of Dahmer merchandise produced over the years, from comics to trading cards, to t-shirts. “We’ve never seen a red cent … If they are going to make a buck, it’s blood money.”

The tour, led by Nicholas Vollmann, consisted  of mostly stops at empty lots along S. 2nd St.. The tour was advertised as 90 minutes long, but turned out to be about an hour long.

Vollmann told the group that, “We’re here today to learn from history. Unfortunately, we can’t bury our heads in the sand.”

The historical narrative of the tour consisted of facts about Dahmer’s life, dating back to his mutilation of dead animals as a child and adolescent. The tour also included information about his victims and his dismemberment of them, but left out any details about cannibalism.

The protesters chanted, “Stop the tour,” but to no avail as Vollmann ignored them and the group continued on.

“To be honest,” Hagen said, “nobody really wants to know the truth. The only people who know the truth are the victims and Dahmer, and they’re all dead.”

From what I could find,  there is a Dahmer tour offered by a group called Hangman’s Tours, advertised as “Milwaukees quirkiest historic tours. Ghosts, cannibals and hookers, oh my.” A customer left a review of the Dahmer tour on the tour group’s Facebook page as recent as July 2016.

I can’t… even… deal!!!  Is this real life!  Was I really that big? Actually I was bigger! This isn’t even me at my heaviest (but not far off)!  The first photo is 1 January 2012 and the second photo was taken 12 December this year!  Almost 4 years difference between these two photos!  It’s been so much hard work over a long period of time but totally and completely worth it!  Anything is possible as long as you don’t give up!  Sometimes I forget how far I have come until I put photos side by side like this!

Ah this first photo. Wow. Haha.

Stats:
First photo: 2012?? (I think) -110kgs (242lbs)
*just a guess as I didn’t weigh myself until I was about 106kgs a fair while after that photo was taken and I started my journey.
Second photo: Today (4/10/15) -74kgs (163lbs)

Almost the same outfit. The pants are just a different colour of the same style but I owned them both at the same time.
In the first photo I remember literally always wearing tank tops and those pants, never wore shorts, I was too big by that stage, which was depressing as I had always worn shorts in the past. But yeah now most of my wardrobe is too big which is cool to experience as I never thought it would happen to me in a million years that something would be too loose. I can’t describe the feeling I get when I try on something in a clothing store and have to go get it in a size smaller because it’s too big. I remember trying on a size 18 jumper in Kmart once when I was big and I cried because it didn’t fit, not even close. Now I’m a comfortable size 12 (Australian sizing)

They say that losing weight doesn’t make you happier, but I disagree. I’m so much more comfortable and healthy in my new body than I ever was when I was big. I still have a way to go. I have loose skin and extra belly fat that I don’t want and I would like to tone up a little bit, so I’m not stopping here. I’m going to keep going until I reach my goal!! :)

K-Pop Star Krystal Jung Is the Global Face of Keds Spring 2017 Campaign: Exclusive First Look
Billboard has an exclusive reveal of Keds' upcoming Spring 2017 campaign featuring Krystal Jung, the San Francisco–born K-pop star known as a member of f(x) and an in-demand model-actress.

In 2012, Taylor Swift helped pivot Keds from a nostalgic American classic to forward-thinking fashion staple. Now as the brand celebrates its 100th year in 2016, we have the first look at its latest move into the future.

Billboard has an exclusive reveal of the iconic company’s upcoming Spring 2017 campaign featuring Krystal Jung, the San Francisco–born K-pop star known as a member of f(x) and an in-demand model-actress. While already a face of the brand in Korea, the girl group member will expand her reach and also star in the company’s upcoming worldwide campaign.

It’s the latest move for Keds’ mission in recognizing global tastemakers. “It’s my first campaign in the States so it’s really exciting, but I was kind of nervous too,” Jung says on set for the New York photo shoot. “It’s an honor.”

That honor includes being featured alongside the likes forward-thinking fashionistas like Swift, Ciara, Tori Kelly and Girls star Allison Williams, who have all modeled or collaborated with the brand. “I listen to a lot of Ciara, and Taylor Swift has a great fashion sense,” Krystal reflects of her superstar company.

The 22 year old adds she’s a fan of the shoes’ versatility. “I want people to know that people to know that Keds can be chic and cool, at the same time being lovely, girly and feminine, and sporty and playful. And it’s really comfy!”

In addition to the upcoming campaign, Krystal will close 2016 performing concerts with f(x) in Thailand and Japan and, in the latter territory, Krystal and her bandmates will release a new single “Cowboy” on Nov. 2. “It’s really a cowboy-cowgirl sound, if you can imagine,” Krystal says of the upcoming track. “The look is really westernized, but it’s still very dance-y…I feel really sorry for my fans for keeping them waiting for our new album. As our members get all together, we’ll release an album as soon as possible. I want to thank them for all their support and love.”

so i don’t think i’ve ever posted this! it’s my very first photo op with the boys from 2012 and yes, i was terrified, but they were lovely. later on, during autographs, i joked with misha about the face he was making. he told me that he was making the face because he was pinching jared’s butt as hard as he possibly could to try and get him to break. special guest appearance by jensen’s nipple.
