Update: Ballard man has been found

Update (Sunday): John Markle has been found. According to a post from Kate’s Pub, his family is asking for privacy as they take care of him.

“Thanks to everyone who kept an eye out and shared the post. We are sending good vibes to John and his family.”

Original (Friday): A Ballard man has been reported missing since Tuesday, Sept. 25. John Markle was last heard from around 10pm on Tuesday, when he was on his way to Have a Heart dispensary in Greenwood.

Members of the My Ballard Group have shared photos and information about Markle, who is a Ballard native and former employee of Kate’s Pub in the U-District. The pub posted on Facebook about his disappearance yesterday. “No one can reach him including his roommate, his family, and his friends,” they write. “There is a large network of us through the pub that know John. Keep an eye out for him please!”

They add that a missing person report has been filed, and that any information about his whereabouts should be given to Seattle Police.

My Ballard Group member Sarah says Markle was a classmate of hers when they were in elementary school. “He’s a Ballard native. Please pass on and keep your eyes out for him.”

His Facebook page shows he was going to NYC – was he already back? Also sadly seems like it was recently the anniversary of losing a close friend. Has anyone asked the police to track his phone signal by working with his phone carrier? Does he have snapchat with friend following turned on?

Don’t take that personally. Downvotes proliferate on this blog. That being said, I agree…I hope this guy isn’t actually missing, but that he just forgot to check-in with someone.
Despite the amount of technological wonders we possess, we sometimes forget people do turn off their phones, or don’t signal-locate, or check-in via social media when they reach their destination. Sometimes people forget, or people want to be left alone.

“Junkie hobo”? You know this how? A “man with a hoodie” and “no clear description”. That’s all you’ve got. The police told KIRO there was no reason to connect this with homelessness.

It’s easy to see why you blame your hated scapegoat for everything. You don’t need proof. You’ll add this to your mental list of crimes you hold against them, and the fact that you have no reason to suspect any group won’t change that.

Keep in mind that the rest of the world doesn’t believe in jumping to conclusions or fabricating facts. “Why won’t the politicians listen?” “Why won’t they round them all up?” So angry. Just realize that what you’re doing right here is exactly why they don’t listen to you. People see right through your deception. Try honesty and see if things improve for you.

Don’t see the word rape in there either. You added that embellishment. It’s possible. Or robbery. Maybe kidnapping. Or simple assault for its own sake. All terrible crimes.

It says a lot about you that can’t stick to the facts. It’s an awful thing that happened. But you only want to exploit it for your agenda. You hijack everything for your own use. These are real people whose stories you steal and twist for your own goals. You don’t care about the person who was attacked, or the man who was missing. They aren’t people to you, they’re things. Tools or raw materials.

Creep.

You guys changed the definition of both rape and assault. This one is now both, by definition. And the victim said that she saw the guy lurking near some of your favorite felony tent clusters.

Why don’t you “listen to women”, elenchos? Shameful. Your misogyny is really unacceptable here.

Harley, nobody believes for even a second that you actually care about the men or women of Ballard and Seattle. It’s pretty sad when you pretend like you do to further whatever point you’re trying to make.

I’m not Harley, but it’s funny when you and elenchos go on your schizo rants about the guy. Keep going. Yes, clearly I don’t care about Ballard because I don’t want the city overrun with scumbag junkie sex offenders. Yep, real misanthrope over here.

OK, to be fair, Harley looks like a paragon of sanity next to his loyal minion Avril. Talk about mentally unstable word-salad spouting maniacs. He cleans up OK and can speak in coherent paragraphs on a single topic, when he wants to. The constant shifting from one obsession to another: junkies >>> coddled dogs >>> the bike mafia >>> soyboys. “Mumbling” obsession. “Move your wallet” obsession. Harley isn’t that mental. Probably Avril.

Not that it matters. Dishonestly taking an assault of unknown motive with “no clear description” and concluding with certainly it was rape and it was a homeless “junkie” blows the credibility of Harley, Avril, David, SS, SOS, and NSA out of the water. You’re all your own worst enemies, no matter who you really are.

Maybe you’re a false flag liberal trying to make the anti-homeless nimbys look bad! Nah! I don’t favor over-complicated conspiracy theories. Odds are things are exactly what they appear to be. It appears that anti-homeless nimbys are malevolent , deceptive, and not very bright, and mostly likely that’s exactly what it is.

Muh virtue signalling, hobo-protecting, stick your fingers in your ears so you can’t hear the reality! Yeah, all signs point to it being a yoyo from a hobo camp nearby. But, don’t tell the progressive lefties – that would go against the current narrative that the homeless are the ‘most vulnerable’ community members, and would never act out in a violent manner. They just need our help!

Meanwhile, the feds are considering relaxing mercury rules, which will have major implications to our food supply and health, both mental and physical.

Why don’t you endlessly shitpost about that instead about a crime, in a major city, that you read about on a website?

Well then, I guess we’ll all be crazy once the mercury enters the water supply. Hey, it might level the playing field and put us on equal footing with our hobo-dwelling neighbors.
At least John Markle is safe and hopefully recovering peacefully.

The police told KIRO “any connection between the attack and the homeless encampment would be speculative.” Virtue signalling, you call it.

What a loon you are.

Just as you accuse your scapegoats of a crime with zero evidence, you falsely accuse me of saying they would “never act out in a violent manner”. You know I’ve never said that. I never said it wasn’t rape — I said it could be, but then again, it could be many things. Rape is a good theory, but there’s a distinction between facts we know and speculation. It could have been someone from a homeless camp. Could be any man in a hoodie. No description of him at all. None.

You falsely distort what I’ve said right here where anyone can simply scroll up and see that I didn’t say it. Everyone can plainly see you’re lying and misrepresenting. Thus, no credibility. You get laughed at. Then whine and bellyache that the media is against you, the conspiracy of Big Hobo or Big Bike or the Jews or the Illuminati are against you.

Take some personal responsibility. You’re the one wrecking your credibility. You did that to you.

Listen to women, elenchos. Just like we need to listen to Dr. Ford, we need to assume statements as facts without trials or evidence. The victim said it was a tent hobo, ergo, it was a tent hobo. Really surprised at your lack of progressivism. Wow. Just wow. I can’t even. And wow, you went on an antisemitic conspiracy tirade to boot. You sound like you watch too much Alex Jones.

“The victim said it was a tent hobo”

Where? She didn’t say it in the link you posted. Not in any of the stories I found. Where are you getting this from? The Fox News version said she was groped, a detail not found in the KOMO and KIRO stories. Groping is sexual assault, and it makes it more likely the motive was rape.

You’re being dishonest implying that I didn’t believe her. I am sticking to the facts we have, which include what the victim and witnesses said. You expect me to take your word for it? LOL. I believe her. You? Your word isn’t worth spit.

Where did she say anything about a “tent hobo”?

‘After running the outer loop of Green Lake, Ball ran down Ravenna Boulevard which passes under I-5 near the Roosevelt area.

“As I crossed under that, I saw a man in a hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans coming from that GREEN TENT that’s on the south side of Ravenna Boulevard … he seemed a little bit off,” she said.

Ball does not believe the man had followed her, but she does think he was waiting for her to come back.

Ball ran east to Cowen Park, then turned around to head back to Green Lake. It was at 6:30 a.m. on 62nd Street right by the I-5 overpass — the street is lined with houses. That when Ball’s run turned into a sudden nightmare. With not even the sound of footsteps as a warning, the man Ball had seen earlier at the tent attacked her from behind.”

That’s a different incident. And the Dori Monson (not a trustworthy source, but we’ll let that slide) story was AFTER you baselessly made up this “junkie hobo” stuff that was NOT THERE in the sources you had the day you claimed it. You were blindly guessing, because you don’t actually care. When a stopped clock is right, you claim vindication. When wrong? So what? You double down. Truth is irrelevant because you only exploit others’ suffering for your agenda.

And of course there’s the fact that most crime is done by housed people. You don’t want all housed people punished for the act of one. Or all men punished for what one man did. Only your scapegoat “junkie hobos.”

You never face the truth about the crime rate. It’s not increasing. And there is no correlation between crime and homelessness.

You and lowlifes like old Dori sensationalize single incidents because reality says you’re wrong. As usual.

This is why you have no influence. Everyone sees right through you.

That appeared in a story posted October 2, 2018, 9:03 am. But you posted “The victim said it was a tent hobo,” on 2018/10/01 at 1:26 pm. You jumped to that conclusion before you had any reason to. I was unwilling to speculate that it was or wasn’t a “tent hobo” based on the fact that none of the stories available at that time said anything of the kind.

And you’re still ignoring the 80 to 100 sexual assaults reported in Seattle this year that were committed by housed people. You don’t think the groups represented by those — all housed people, all men — should pay for them. You have no basis for using this crime against all homeless people. None.

Look, your other sock handle posted a “kill yourself” troll and the Geeky Swedes apparently are OK with that. I don’t read or post on that kind of website. You have this place to yourself now. Congratulations. This cesspool is all yours.
