[UPDATED] Oh Lord, please let this REDACTED get thrown into Curran Fromhold. PLEASE?
Someone asked me today, "When you were working in A.C., did you ever hear of that asshole Michael Crook?" My answer, of course, was "no." Because I hadn't. Until this afternoon, when I looked up this REDACTED's* website on which the REDACTED proceeds to taunt the men and women of the Philadelphia Police Department for -- gasp! -- mourning the loss of another of their own. You know, just like any self-respecting human being mourns the loss of someone who takes a protect-and-serve job knowing full-well that they could lose their life any damn day of the week. Unlike lil Mikey, who actually wrote an autobiography.
Presumably, his book did not contain chapters on grooming or hygiene, unless it's in a Rocky Dennis way. Images taken from Crook's website.
I mean, really? Someone wants to read about a REDACTED from the mean streets of Mays Landing?
"His" latest post is titled, "See you tonight, Philly cops," and it reads:
So tonight, it all starts to come to a close: the fuss that’s been blanketing Philly starts to come to its natural conclusion.
Tonight is John Pawlowski’s viewing in at the John J. Givnish Funeral Home in Philly. I will be there, exercising my legal right to protest. Be sure to look for me after your precious, empty ceremony, and it’ll all be nice and perfectly legal, giving no grounds for arrest or retribution.
Also, I have booked a hotel room, and will be staying in Philly, because I will then protest at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, for his funeral.
And yes, just like I did at a veterans’ cemetery last summer (see the video section), I will share my own little “tribute” after he’s buried at the Resurrection Cemetery in Bensalem. After the grave is closed, and after everything is all nice and pretty, I will come exercise my free speech. I have proven that I have no problem doing that, as the Hamilton Township Police and the Atlantic County Park Police can attest.
It’s time that the arrogance of cops is exposed. Oh, and by the way, I am coming prepared, so anyone with bright ideas would do well to remember that.
I think I speak for all of us -- including the actually legible writers of the world (of which he most certainly isn't a member) -- when I say I'm praying Mikey crosses the line and winds up doing 36-48 hours in a Philly cell. (Psst, your cellmates will be a little tougher than the "Atlantic County Park Police").
Because, quite frankly, this "guy" is a total, unrepentant REDACTED who couldn't even land an internship at a local paper.
UPDATE: Aw wook, the REDACTED wishes I'd died in the hit-and-run. How cute!
Back in 2008, a driver apparently “left him for dead” in a hit-and-run accident. Too bad the driver didn’t finish him off. Hickey’s wife whined that “if the driver has a conscience he’ll turn himself in.” Why? If the driver got away with it, why in the hell would he or she do such a thing? If anything, that driver should get a medal. Hickey dubs the driver a “dirtbag hit-and-run driver“, but it is not so. That driver almost eliminated this judgmental, hateful cretin, and that’s a good thing. Arrogant and self-centered, HIckey is so quick to rush to judgment without doing even the most basic research. With all this in mind, it wouldn’t have been a loss to anyone had the driver actually gotten it right, and I for one hope the driver is never caught.
*= I've redacted the name-calling because I made a deal with myself, upon waking up from the coma, to not do so. Besides, I think his wishing death upon me does more than enough talking.
