    ‘Corrupt cops will try to kill me this weekend’: Activist’s grim prediction days before he was found stabbed to death

    Whistleblower stabbed & burnt after posting chilling warning on Facebook.

    The man who was found stabbed inside a burning home in Fresno last week is confirmed to be John Lang, a frequent poster in the Fresno People’s Media group on Facebook and acquaintance to many in the Fresno activist community.

    Abc30 reported:

    Police say a man who had been stabbed was found inside a burning Central Fresno home. He was pronounced dead at the hospital and the neighborhood is in shock. The smoke was spotted by neighbors on Van Ness, just north of Belmont around 3:00 in the afternoon on Wednesday and firefighters just happened to be a few doors down on an unrelated call. Battalion Chief Todd Tuggle said, “While the 911 call was going in, neighbors were flagging down our engine company.” The home was heavily secured with a gate so firefighters had to force their way in. After a quick search, they found a man in the kitchen, unconscious and bleeding from several stab wounds. He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead. Lt. Joe Gomez with the Fresno Police Department said, “Unknown if the stab wounds caused the death or the smoke inhalation, it’s too early to tell.” Investigators call the death suspicious and they believe the house was intentionally set on fire. Tamara Olivarria who lives across the street said, “He just got those lights fixed and the gate is locked so I’m not sure how anyone would have got in even, but it’s kind of scary.” Police haven’t confirmed it but neighbors say the victim is a man in his mid-40’s– a man who lived alone and worked on boats at the home. Theresa Fuentes says he was a friend and she’s not sure why anyone would want to hurt him. “If it’s a random thing, that makes it much scarier…cause the neighborhood is getting better, we thought,” Fuentes said. Olivarria added, “It’s sad, you know, I hope he didn’t experience a lot of pain.” At this point, there are no suspects and police need help solving the case.

    But this is only a small part of the story. John seemingly predicted his own murder and says Fresno law enforcement is responsible.

    Days before his death, he was adamant that Fresno law enforcement would conclude their 7-year-long campaign against him by ending his life.

    On Jan. 13, 2016, he shared a brief conversation between him and another person reiterating the reason why Fresno cops were stalking him.
    The next day, Jan. 14, John’s Facebook posts became increasingly alarmist (or so we thought).

    [​IMG]

    On the 15th, he reached out to reporter Corin Hoggard and claimed that Fresno cops would try to kill him in the next few days.
    On the 16th, he posted a video showing people he believed meant him imminent harm.
    He also asked people to stay at his house with him, with guns, to protect him from “the bad guys” in the van.

    [​IMG]

    Jan. 17, he wrote this open letter to the DOJ and FBI.
    Jan. 20th, he was dead.

    [​IMG]

    John first reached out to us in May of 2015. Like many, we thought he was paranoid. Shortly after the initial contact, he registered several domain names for a website that served as an online diary of his experiences. He also had a YouTube channel with 17 videos, all from his home surveillance system. The videos, he says, show police intimidation and suspicious characters who are part of a conspiracy to destroy him.

    The content below is unedited and uncut from John’s diary.

    John says his story starts in 2009.
    He says police harassment peaked in 2013 during the Measure G campaign.
    He mentions illegal emissions stickers, a reoccurring topic in his story.

    Spooky. Guy sounds like a fucking nut but who knows. Maybe his neighbourhood is shitty and it was a coincidence? Still pretty wild.

    Holyshit. Fresno police are a gang, not a law enforcement agency.

    And it's sad, because a well-intentioned bunch of guys join what they believe is a force for good will.
    Some become as corrupt as the corporate/socialist laws they enforce.
    Some negotiate their position in despair, knowing it is an unwinnable battle, but winnable within' their own families if they survive.
    Some lose everything they were, and make their entire goal the next achievement.
    Some who stand steadfast are crucified for not covering for their "own".
    And some make it through the war, with some measure of pride, for at least trying and doing their best.

    They are truly between a rock and a hard place.
    The entire system needs torn down and rebuilt, starting with a gold standard.
    This starts and bleeds down from the very top.

    Most PDs in the United States are......

    A wise man once said "There are no good cops. There are only bad cops and silent cops".

    May John rest in peace.
    May the thug cops responsible get killed on duty.

    How does he know that was thermal imaging? Thermal imagine can't go through walls anyway, so it would be useless in telling if someone is home. Maybe the special ops have some shit like that, but certainly not the police.

    Wow this is some scary shit.

    Youd think if it was the cops that killed him they wouldnt have done it so messy.

    It would probably be easier just to get a sniper to take him out.

    What do you think that thing was? I'm curious myself. I was thinking maybe something to intercept his calls or to jam his internet

    Don't really know to be honest. Could have been a jammer, could have been a sound detector, could have been something looking for hot wires (maybe for his exterior cameras power sources?)...odd looking device.

    agreed. I have no idea what that was.

    I would also assume that if they were imaging/jamming/surveying the house, & trying to be discreet about it, they wouldn't sit directly across from him with their door wide open in broad daylight.

    seemed more like an act of intimidation imo.

    that video of the cops parking & posting up across his street was fucked.

    If that is what it was, which appears accurate, it seems like overkill for a stationary video from the van. The same could have been accomplished with a handheld.

    If the guy pissed someone off, I could see someone fucking with him like this, especially if they knew he was paranoid.

    Fresno PD has a large budget, receives federal funding, and has created a huge stash of military equipment. No reason to think they do not have equal equipment to a special forces company.

    Gangs are bad in Fresno. Shit is no joke and people will kill you same as they would in Oakland. Their PD is prepared to fight a mini army, like the Fresno Bulldogs for one.

    Body cams should be mandatory for people who have guns and a badge that says they are allowed to use those guns to kill people with impunity.
