Police: L.A. Pride Lurker Did Not Say Anything About HARM, Was Armed To The Hilt, Was Meeting An Online Buddy Comments (0)

James Howell, apprehended with a boatload of weapons en route to L.A. Pride, was going to hang with a dude he, um, met online.

The 20-year-old Indiana resident traveled cross-country to meet this friend, who has been interviewed by authorities and absolved of any suspicion that he may have been a potential co-conspirator to do damage at the parade.

It's worth noting that the original report that Howell admitted he was hoping to cause “harm” to L.A. Pride. was false; he simply admitted he was heading there.

Via TMZ:

Law enforcement sources say they found the friend and he backs up Howell's story, but is adamant he was clueless Howell's trunk contained 3 assault rifles, high capacity magazines, and a 5 gallon bucket of chemicals cops suspect could have been used as a bomb.

We're told the friend told police he met the Indiana man online recently, and planned to meet in person to attend Pride together ... and that's all.

Cops believed the alibi ... and cleared him of any involvement.

Police still have no solid idea of what exactly Howell was planning, but he does have a record. I'd love to know the circumstances under which Howell met his online friend; did they meet on Grindr or in the comments section at at InfoWars?

Outpouring Of Support For Orlando From Other Cities Comments (0)

The scene in WeHo on Sunday:

In Manhattan, hundreds spontaneously gathered outside the Stonewall Inn to remember the victims of Omar Mateen who died at Pulse in Orlando Sunday morning.

Via Joe.My.God.:

Along the edges of crowd about two dozen heavily armed members of NYPD stood stoically but on alert as television crews conducted interviews with passersby, many of whom spoke furiously through tears. At one point, led by an group unseen to me in the middle of the crowd, attendees erupted in a singalong of Over The Rainbow. As the song ended a small child’s voice wafted over the square: “STOP THE HATE!” And then, for the first time, you saw smiles.

Please feel free to send me any images or notes about things happening in your area.

Police have confirmed the man arrested overnight in Santa Monica with a cache of weapons admitted he wanted to “harm” L.A. Pride, one of the nation's largest Gay Pride Parades.

Twenty-year-old James Howell, an Indiana resident, was picked up after reports of a prowler in the area. He readily admitted to police he was in town for Pride. Police found guns, ammo and possible explosive material.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a news conference that was no link between this thwarted plot and the terror-linked mass murder of patrons at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

 
All-Out Assault On Gay Pride?: Man Arrested In L.A. With Weapons Was IN TOWN FOR GAY PRIDE Comments (0)

“No one is equal unless everyone is equal.”—WeHo City Councilwoman Lindsey Horvath

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that a man stopped after reports of a prowler, and who said he was in town for the Gay Pride Parade, has been arrested for possessing assault weapons, ammunition and possible explosives:

Early Sunday, there was a call to Santa Monica police of a suspected prowler near Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street. Patrol officers responded and encountered an individual who told officers he was waiting for a friend. That led officers to inspect the car and find several weapons and a lot of ammunition as well as tannerite, an ingredient that could be used to create a pipe bomb.

The car had Indiana plates. The man made comments that he was in town for the Pride event in West Hollywood this weekend. Sources said they did not know of any connection between the gay nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla., early Sunday morning and the Santa Monica incident, and the investigation has been taken over by the FBI.

A city official in West Hollywood also confirmed the arrest and stressed that officials were beefing up security at the gay pride event.

“They found him with weapons that were very disconcerting," said the source, adding officials are "taking the appropriate safety precautions.”

Stay safe this year. I'll see all you LGBT people and LGBT supporters at NYC Pride.
