regarding the photo images, blog post by John Hoff
From 2008 to 2011, this blogger went through a series of cheap pawn shop cameras. But the camera I purchased around February 2011 lasted me through Afghanistan and continues to last, even though the battery and memory card compartment is held together with duct tape. And nowadays I mostly use my cell phone for pictures, a cell phone also purchased secondhand.
But in 2011 I published a photo, at the top, of somebody who had previously owned or shall we say POSSESSED my camera before I turned it up in a Minneapolis pawn shop...
Here is a link to that old story about buying the camera and finding an image of this tatted up young man's face.
I am not one of those people who claims to never forget a face, but I will claim to have never forgotten a face with a tattoo of the outline of the state of Minnesota and three black spiders crawling across the forehead.
Recently, in a FOX 9 story about a suspect named Jermaine McMahon, (accused of killing Bloomington resident Justin Williams outside a downtown parking lot) Well, I thought I saw something very familiar about the suspect's face. I immediately found the pawn shop camera story from 2011 and matched the face of McMahon to my previously unknown (but now identified) POSSESSOR OF JOHNNY NORTHSIDE'S EL CHEAPO PAWN SHOP CAMERA.
And yes, I am still using the camera today!
This is where we all sing "it's a small world after all."
Even more incredibly, suspect Jermaine McMahon was identified because he took off his ski mask and guess what?
A security camera snapped his picture!
Too weird, folks, just too weird.
