CAREFUL AND INTRICATE DETAIL IS GIVEN TO SCENERY SUCH AS THE INTERIORS OF THE HOME OF THE GACY FAMILY, THE COLORS AND TEXTURES USED IN THEIR FURNISHINGS AND HOW WELL KEPT THE CHILDREN’S ROOMS WERE REQUIRED TO BE. BARRY DETAILS THEIR CHILDHOOD ADVENTURES SUCH AS BUILDING A FOR – PROFIT ROLLER COASTER IN THEIR BACKYARD AND BUILDING A FORT. THE AUTHOR ALSO DETAILS INCIDENTS THAT LIKELY PLAYED A MAJOR ROLE IN THE SOMATIC AS WELL AS PSYCHOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT OF YOUNG JOHNNY GACY. ONE SUCH INCIDENT DETAILED IS WHEN YOUNG JOHNNY WAS HIT HARD IN THE HEAD AREA BY A THICKLY BUILT WOODEN AND IRON SWING AS THE KIDS WERE PLAYING. JOHNNY LOST CONSCIOUSNESS FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME AND WAS TRANSPORTED BY A CRYING, VERY DISTRAUGHT BARRY BACK TO THE KID’S HOUSE AS THEY COULD NOT FIND A POLICE OFFICER. THIS EVENT WAS INSIDIOUS AND CRITICAL IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF JOHNNY GACY. JOHNNY SUFFERED ACUTE EFFECTS FROM THIS INJURY FOR WEEKS AND SOME VERY SEVERE. IT WAS THOUGHT TO HAVE CAUSED AMPLE BLEEDING ON THE BRAIN AND A CLOT FORMED. DURING RECOVERY JOHNNY SUFFERED SLURRED SPEECH. THIS IS IMPORTANT AS IT INDICATES POSSIBLE DAMAGE TO BROCA’S AREA WITH ACCOMPANYING STROKE. SO, THERE WAS A LOSS OF BLOOD FLOW TO THE AREA WITH ACCOMPANYING LOSS OF OXYGEN CAUSING THE DEATH OF CELLS IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA. MANY DOCTORS SPECULATE THAT THIS DAMAGE COULD HAVE AFFECTED HIS PSYCHOLOGICAL MAKE -UP IN SIGNIFICANT WAYS LEADING TO THE EXTREMES OF HIS PERSONALITY. JOHNNY WAS TO SUFFER LIFELONG PROBLEMS FROM THIS EVENT INCLUDING PERIODIC BLACKOUTS.
JOHNNY AND BARRY HAD MUCH IN COMMON. THEY BOTH LOVED CANDY AND WOULD SAVE TO BUY IT. THEIR FATHER’S WERE ABUSIVE ALCOHOLICS AND WOULD GO INTO RAGES. ONE DAY, BARRY ACCIDENTALLY SPILLED A DRINK ON MR. GACY. HE GOT VERY MAD ABOUT IT AND BARRY LEFT. JOHNNY HAD TO CLEAN HIS ROOM AND MOP THE KITCHEN FLOOR. IF HE TRIED TO SLACK OFF HIS FATHER WOULD LITERALLY KILL HIM SO HE NEVER MISSED HIS CHORES.JOHNNY WAS TO WALK THE DOG. AND IF HE DID NOT DO IT HIS FATHER WOULD WHIP HIS ASS. JOHNNY DRESSED VERY NEATLY AND WAS VERY WELL GROOMED AT ALL TIMES. BARRY WAS NOT GAY AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO BOYS WAS A NORMAL FRIENDSHIP. MR. GACY DID NOT TOLERATE HOMOSEXUALITY AND IF HE EVER FOUND OUT THAT JOHNNY WAS ATTRACTED TO MALES HE WOULD HAVE LITERALLY KILLED HIM.

TO REDUCE TO ORIGINAL SIZE HOLD DOWN Ctrl KEY AND PRESS THE – KEY UNTIL IMAGE IS AT ORIGINAL SIZE.JOHN WAYNE GACY WAS HIGHLY CREATIVE. HE WAS A TALENTED ARTIST AND PAINTER. HE PAINTED MANY VERY ORIGINAL PICTURES OF CLOWNS AMONG OTHER THINGS. JOHN WAYNE GACY WAS A REGISTERED CLOWN AND MADE HIS OWN COSTUMES AND APPLIED HIS OWN MAKEUP. HIS IDENTITY THAT HE CREATED FOR HIMSELF WAS NAMED “POGO”. IN ORDER TO TERRIFY PEOPLE AND GIVE THEM HORRIFYING DREAMS HE WOULD APPLY HIS MAKEUP SUCH THAT THE CORNERS OF THE DESIGNS WERE SHARP OR RESEMBLED BATS SO AS TO SEND TERRIFYING SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES TO THE PEOPLE THAT VIEWED HIM. HE ENJOYED DOING THIS AND TRIED TO LOOK AS CREEPY AS POSSIBLE TO FRIGHTEN PEOPLE. FOR THIS REASON MANY PEOPLE ARE SCARED OF CLOWNS AND DO NOT LIKE BEING AROUND THEM. JOHN WAYNE GACY STATED THAT HE LIKED BEING A CLOWN AND THAT WHEN HE GOT INTO HIS CLOWN MAKEUP “HE COULD BE HIMSELF OR JUST ACT A FOOL”. WHEN JOHN WAYNE GACY WAS A SMALL BOY HIS FATHER WOULD BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF HIM. HE WOULD CALL HIM A SISSY. HE WOULD TELL HIM “YOU ARE DUMB AND STUPID AND NEVER WILL AMOUNT TO ANYTHING”. WHEN JOHNNY WANTED TO EXPRESS HIMSELF BY PLANTING FLOWERS OR PAINTING ART HIS FATHER WOULD TELL HIM THAT THAT WAS THE “SISSY” THING TO DO. WHEN JOHNNY WANTED TO EXPRESS HIMSELF THROUGH COOKING IT WAS THE “SISSY” THING TO DO. WHEN JOHNNY EXPRESSED NO INTEREST IN SPORTS OR FISHING TO HIS FATHER IT MADE HIM A “SISSY”. ACCORDING TO HIS FATHER HE WAS A “PUSSY” BECAUSE HE HAD NO INTEREST IN WATCHING AN OVERPAID, NARCISSISTIC, IGNORAMUS WITH A 4TH GRADE READING LEVEL EVEN AFTER ATTENDING 4 YEARS OF COLLEGE, THROW A BALL TO ANOTHER BRUTISH, EGOTISTICAL, ILLITERATE, GOON. IF HE WANTED TO LEARN THE PIANO OR SING IN THE CHOIR HE WAS A “FAGGOT”. ACCORDING TO HIS FATHER, JOHNNY WAS ONLY A MAN IF HE WANTED TO WATCH A JOCK IDIOT WITH A 50 WORD VOCABULARY COVERED IN FULL SLEEVE TATTOOS AND GOLD IN HIS TEETH THROW A BALL AT ANOTHER IMBECILE OR GO OUT AND KILL OR TORTURE ANIMALS. IF HE WASN’T AN UNSOPHISTICATED SIMPLE BRUTE WITH A CAN OF BEER WATCHING A SPORTS EVENT THEN HE WAS A “FAGGOT”. IF HE SHOWED ANY SENSITIVITY OR CREATIVITY AT ALL THEN HE WAS ACTING “LIKE A FAGGOT”. WHEN JOHNNY WAS CAUGHT TRYING ON HIS MOTHERS BRA AND PANTIES BECAUSE HE LIKED THE SOFT SILKY FEEL AND WANTED TO EXPLORE HIS FEMININE SIDE HE WAS BEATEN WITH A HEAVY LEATHER BELT BY HIS MACHO, INTOXICATED, BLUE COLLAR AND ALCOHOLIC FATHER. THUS WAS BORN THE NASCENCY OF JOHNNY’S HOMICIDAL RAGE. IF JOHNNY’S FATHER HAD EVER FOUND OUT THAT JOHNNY HAD HOMOSEXUAL FEELINGS HE WOULD HAVE KILLED HIM. BECAUSE OF THE PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE THAT JOHN WAYNE GACY ENDURED AS A CHILD HE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING HE IS ACCUSED OF. SOCIETY CREATED JOHN WAYNE GACY. SOCIETY OSTRACIZED AND ABUSED HIM. THEN,FINALLY, SOCIETY REAPED THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR CREATION. IN THE END, SOCIETY EXECUTED HIM OUT OF THEIR OWN SELF-HATRED AND FEAR. HIS LAST WORDS ON THIS EARTH WERE “KISS MY ASS” AND HE NEVER OWED SOCIETY AN APOLOGY. AND THEY NEVER GOT ONE.

Rows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
and feather canyons everywhere, I’ve looked at clowns that way.
But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone.
So many things I could have done but clowns got in the way.
I’ve looked at clowns from both sides now,
from up and down, and still somehow
it’s clown illusions I recall.
I really don’t know clowns at all.
Runes and dooms and Ferris wheels, the busy lazy way you feel
as every fairy tale comes real I’ve looked at hate that way.
But now it’s just another show. You leave ’em crying when you go
and if you care, don’t let them know, don’t give yourself away.
I’ve looked at hate from both sides now,
from give and take, and still somehow
it’s hate’s illusions that I recall.
I really don’t know love at all.
Tears and fears and feeling proud, to say “I hate you” right out loud,
bad dreams and schemes and circus clowns , I’ve looked at life that way.
But now old clowns are acting strange, they shake their heads, they say
Something’s lost but something’s gained in living every day.
I’ve looked at clowns from both sides now,
from win and lose, and still somehow
it’s life’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know clowns at all.
Kunming Railway Station, Yunnan province of China — Chinese officials said a group of men, apparently well organized have attacked a railway station killing at least 28 and wounding 116. In communist China, guns are illegal so there was no way for any of these people to put up a defense. Unlike in the United States where one well armed citizen with a concealed handgun could have prevented this bloodshed. A knife attack can be very quick and very deadly if the attacker happens to hit any of a number of vital areas. Any deep cut to a major artery such as the carotid artery in the neck area or the femoral artery in the upper leg region will quickly cause the victim to bleed to death unless a tourniquet is applied. Arteries carry oxygenated blood under high pressure from the heart whereas veins are carrying blood in it’s dexoy form back from the extremities so a cut to a vein is less dangerous than an artery. A cut to an artery will cause blood to shoot out forcefully whereas a cut to a vein will cause blood to flow out more slowly. IF you ever come across a person who has been stuck with a knife and the knife is still protruding from them DO NOT remove the knife ever. It may have severed an artery and may be the only thing holding the severed artery closed. Always leave the knife in them until they get to an emergency room.
