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.

Lisa's first page is about Skam, posting 2012 photos of Louis and a manip of Harry and Louis. That tells what kind of day she's having and how much she supports Harry.

Photographer Zun Lee found the first batch of photos in 2012. The pictures — dusty and discarded though they were — depicted a rich vision of black America as captured by those who lived it. Over the next few years, he kept finding more. Now, they make up a striking Instagram account, @faderesistance, showing in the most beautiful way that black lives matter.

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!! :)

Ok so, Mario posted this photo on Facebook on November 05, 2012. At first the description was “Devil in the trust, but an angel in the face ;)” and Marco commented:

(In case you don’t already know what “hübsch” means, it means “pretty” :-D)

And after Marco’s comment he edited the description to yours :).  

anonymous asked:

Hi! Do you know if Adam Driver has ever mentioned how he got started with or what he thinks of his modeling career? Because he's totally a male model. From interviews about acting he always seems very surprised/confused that moviegoers think he's sexy (like the "No, no, that's nice, I don't know what to think of that" responses he gives). I get the feeling he could be similarly confused why photographers want to take his picture or dress him up for magazines. Any quotes/insight?

Hey!

Okay, first I have to thank you for this ask, and I have to apologise for not answering it before. I’ve been thinking about it even since you sent it, because I love these types of things, but they also take me a lot of time because I want to provide as good an answer as possible. Which I’ve now finally sat down to do.

Okay, it turns out it’s a right bitch to find any interview where Adam talks about this to any extensive degree, so I just need to go with what I got.

As far as I can tell, Adam did his first fashion photo shoots in 2012. (If anyone has any different info on this, please let me know, I couldn’t find any before that.) As to his feelings on this, they’re hard to come by, but there’s a few times he’s mentioned this, mostly in interviews when he’s asked about his “unusual looks” (I’m sorry, but it must be simply galling to be asked about this as often as he’s been), like in this interview in The Guardian last year:

What about being a sex symbol?

[Laughs loudly] I have nothing to say about that.

You must have been told before that you have an amazing unusual face? It’s a compliment - not being the standard Hollywood McHunk has worked in your favour.

I have been told before that I have an unusual face. But my face is my face. I had a whole life before acting, over the years. Lots of things have been said about my face.

He also provides some insight in this piece from Stylist Magazine in 2013: 

At 6ft 3in, he cuts a striking figure; his edgy persona and unusual looks having landed him modelling gigs for Gap and Vogue. Today at the Four Seasons, Beverly Hills, he’s casual in white T-shirt and jeans, his previously neat Bieber-esque hair now shoulder length and shaggy. He is pretty goofy, laughing when discussing how his frequently bare torso has been afforded the dubious pleasure of having its own Twitter account.

How does he feel about being objectified? “I haven’t processed that yet. I guess it’s better than people being like, ‘F*ck that guy!’ But I don’t know how to take that on.”

-

You have a strong screen presence. Is that tapping into something in you?

Maybe I am weird, and that is coming through in a lot of characters! I think with all roles, you bring ‘you’ to them. Every character I play I feel like he is going to put Kleenex in his nose at the end of every scene. But I don’t think about if they are weird. It’s not in my mind to make them unique, it’s just my take, my initial impulse.

-

You have a very distinct look. How do you feel about that?

I look the way I look. As you get older, you don’t care that much. I am who I am. The military had something to do with that, because you get torn down so much, you grow thick skin. I know I look odd. I never think I look cool! [Laughs]. Because of what I do, the way I look is on the forefront, but you can either let it limit you and go down the rabbit hole of, “Oh God, why don’t I look like that?” or use it to fuel you, like, “What’s wrong with being different?”

How do you feel about fame?

I don’t understand it. It’s all new to me. Being recognised on the street, that’s not a normal thing. So suddenly, when you go places, you find yourself being self-aware like, “Do I have something dangling…?” And everyone has phones. I hate phones. I am suddenly so scared of [camera] phones. It’s a weird adjustment.

(Yes, I know, the Bieber reference is galling, but otherwise it’s a nice piece, I recommend a read.)

I expect we’ve all seen the interview on The Late Night With Stephen Colbert from march this year, where this happened:

(The whole gifset is here.)

He does seem very uncomfortable discussing the Newsweek article. Whether that’s because he really feels insecure, or if it comes from thinking the whole sex symbol thing is ridiculous in general, it’s hard to say. Maybe a bit of both? He strikes me as a man that has a handle on his priorities, and I feel he’d much rather get recognition for the work he does, and not for his looks. 

On the other hand, that may be wishful thinking on my part, especially considering this, Guy Trebay’s now rather infamous NY Times interview, from where some of his more famous quotes stem: 

“I’m like a sight gag,” said Adam Driver, who plays the ugly-handsome, so-awful-to-Hannah-he’s-catnip bad boyfriend from HBO’s “Girls.”

“I have this really big face,” added Mr. Driver, whose powerful head suggests a public monument and whose striking features one writer called “worthy of the Mongolian plains.”

“Costume people are always saying they don’t have clothes big enough for me,” added Mr. Driver, who at 6-foot-3 is a veritable giant in an industry where 5-foot-10 is the median height for heartthrobs.

Whether despite or because of his unusual looks, Mr. Driver finds himself on the eve of the hit cable show’s highly anticipated third season (it returns in January) both a breakout star and, more curious still, an unexpected new favorite of fashion.

Somehow, he also found time to model for a September Vogue pictorial shot in Ireland by Annie Leibovitz and for Gap’s new “Back to Blue” ad campaign, which had its debut in mid-September and marked the brand’s return to TV advertising for the first time since 2009.

“I don’t totally get it,” the actor said one recent morning over coffee at a communal table in a cafe near his home in Brooklyn Heights. “I mean, when I read for ‘Girls,’ I was, like, the script says ‘Handsome Carpenter,’ so someone else is going to get the part. They’ll have someone handsome, not me. I mean, I’m not in any danger of getting leading-man parts.”

Mr. Driver characterizes his “Girls” character, Adam Sackler, in more prosaic terms: “He’s part poet, part rhinoceros and part Neanderthal.”

If all the recent hype, the adulation, the Emmy nomination and the breathless encomiums from the fashion flock have gone to the actor’s head, he does a credible job of concealing it. “The deadly thing in my job is to attach too much meaning to everything,” said Mr. Driver, who in person is thoughtful and unnervingly sincere, and smart enough to take a gimlet-eyed view of the overnight stardom that took him a decade to achieve. “You have to have a sense of humor about yourself.”

Now, apart from the editorial genius of describing him as “ugly-handsome”,

this interview pretty much sums up how he likely feels about his own looks and how he expects the world to react to them. On the other hand, looking at his roles, and photoshoots for that matter, he doesn’t seem to preoccupied with how people view him. And that, to me, is something that makes him even more attractive.

That’s some of my insight, but I thought it would be nice to include some of the things others have said about him, as it also sheds some light on how he’s gotten to be considered such an attractive model. Since it’s a rather long(er) read, I’ve put it under the cut.

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.
