Guns, Guns And More Guns In The Facebook Photo Albums Of Glenn D. Smith, a/k/a Chief Chuck So Iicey (sic) Smith, Accused Of Gang Related Alley Shooting Incident...

Facebook photo, used under First Amendment Fair Comment
and Criticism, and public safety exceptions, blog post by John

Glenn D. Smith, as I blogged previously, is accused of being involved in a shooting incident in the alley near 1826 Penn Ave. N. which shows every indication of being gang related. Nobody was killed in the incident though a 74-year-old male bystander was grazed in the face by a bullet. Smith is in jail on $200,000 bail, total, and charged with four weapons related felonies. There is videotape documenting at least part of the alley shooting incident so guess what? This guy is probably going away for a while.

Smith has documented his life prolifically on Facebook, where he has 1,651 followers. He has been on Facebook since 2010, so that would be since approximately the age 16 since his birthday is April 17, 1994 and he is currently just NINETEEN years old. (However, Smith has a "baby face" which makes him appear much younger)

It will take more than one blog post to reveal the trail of treasures Smith (a/k/a Chief Chuck So Iicey Smith, a/k/a Chief Chuck Got-Hoess Smith) has shared with the world. For the moment, I am ONLY going to comment upon the photos which explicitly include firearms, of which there are quite a few.

Let's start with the photo above. Look just above the left lower corner of the photo and you will see the tiny, pink shoe-shoe clad feet of a little girl...

Glen Smith is the guy holding the pistol and the bottle of booze though, to be perfectly fair, I will wager everybody in the group held the gun at least once and got a picture of themselves doing it. Here is another photo, below, from the same precise time frame.


Same group, same gun. Note that in the background a figure is visible who appears to be a small female but apparently not the same little girl with the pink shoes.

There's more. In fact, here's a montage...albeit not created by this blogger, but reproduced exactly as I found it on Glenn Smith's page.

Oh, but there's more.


This is quite an early photo of Smith, but that's him. Note this pistol is a revolver and it's flipped open to expose the cylinder. There don't appear to be any bullets in the cylinder.


From the context in which this photo is found and, given how many of Smith's pictures are posing self-portraits (the vast majority, to the point of narcissism) this photo is assumed to be one of Smith as well, even though for once he is showing a little bit of sense and not making himself identifiable in the photo before putting it on Facebook.

More photos are coming, however, JNS blog readers have been going to Glenn Smith's Facebook page (click here for the link, though it won't work unless you're on Facebook) and checking out his EXTENSIVE trove of candid photos of Northside gang life.

You really have to see it to believe it. Hopefully the jury in his trial will be allowed to see some of it as well.

Here's a question that has me literally scratching my head.

On that Facebook profile is that a/k/a Chief Chuck So Iicey (Iicey with an capital I (eye) I for Ice) Smith?

Or ids it a/k/a/ Chief Chuck So Iicey (licey with a little l (ell) l for lice) Smith?

Your itchy yet understandable confusion stems from a difference in the font between the headline and the text in the blog post itself. And, for that matter, in the comments.

In the headline, a capital "I" (eye) looks like a capital "I" (eye). But in the text itself and in these comments, a different font makes a capital "I" (eye) appear exactly like a small letter "l" (ell).

You can see it even as I type it. To make matters worse, the font changes between your draft of your comments and how the comments appear after you press publish. Your Times Roman capital "I" (eye) changes to another font.

Thus Chief Chuck So Iicey Smith looks like he's licey, not icey in the comments and blog post. But he's extra icy (extra with an extra letter "eye") in the headline. The one extra letter and sometimes whole rows of letter are added for crude written expressiveness, as follows:

"Look at meeeeeee. I'm so iiiiiicey."

If Chuck were more literate he would have realized the possible confusion in putting the letter "I" (eye) in "icy" twice for emphasis, a deplorable trend in written communication that I abhor. But since he's not very literate, well, you see the result.

This "licey" versus "icy" confusion falls into the perfectly shaped little keyhole of potential confusion caused by the fact a capital letter and a small letter appear the same in that typeface. It is a great day (or a terrible day) to be an English Major and be aware of such things.

Not clear what you mean by "big drills." Please explain.

I noticed the little girl in the first photo too. Breaks my heart to see children growing up in that kind of environment.

Culture of filth. They need to turn those so called "big drills", probably pussy 9s, on themselves. Fucking shit bags.

Michael Castano said...

¨big drills means rather large firearms. Which amuses me when they have a small .38 snubbie and not like a Beretta 92f or something. But i guess when you dont get to choose what you want at a legal gunstore anything is a big drill. I feel better with my selection knowing that this is considered big drills.

Stop using derogatory terms for females to describe these sub-human mutants. The only people I see slinging guns on these pages are members of the sex whose tender gonads hang between their legs.

The phrases and names they use are revealing information that may prove useful to, for example, law enforcement or even, down the road, this blogger.

Furthermore, if they get it off their chest they are less inclined to seek other, more dangerous, avenues of expression.

So I will continue to publish "free my homey" comments as long as they don't go too far with threats, etc.

Sorry. I do respect your side of the argument, though, and I see why you make that point.

Do these guys live at 3723 Girard Ave. N., Anthony Weinstein's and Jon Peterson's problem property?

Johnny Northside! said...

I don't know. What makes you ask that specific question? What do you know or suspect?

Anonymous said...

3723 Girard Ave. N. is a known problem property, even by the city, the city nor its owners are taking care of the issues it continues to have in an appropriate or timely manner, and it's also a suspected drug dealing operation with multiple children constantly present. Perhaps for subterfuge? Plus, if you look at the Mpls. crime maps for this week of Oct. 22 - Oct. 28 there was a weapons arrest there as well. It was said that people were firing guns off from the back deck and a swat team arrived. Here is the number for the address's owners Jon Peterson and Anthony Weinstein (612)384-3126

The guy on the right seems to be pointing at and cupping his little buddy Glenn in a special way! That's what fiends are for!

Johnny Northside! said...

I've allowed the comment about "what friends are for" as part of the discussion, giving the usual JNS blog wide latitude to substantive comments. But I look at the photo and I don't see what you see. It looks like fairly standard gang poses to me.

Chief Chuck has court today....

Johnny Northside! said...

I obviously disagree with the "Free Chuck" comment, but it's well within the free wheeling free speech that I allow in the comments section.

Why? Why should Chuck be freed? So he can go out and shoot somebody else?
