Dude Seriously Needs a Make Over

If Benny Carl Johnston Jr. is as smart as he is attractive, he’s in big trouble. When I saw him I literally jumped back. The paper has a picture of him in the local section today along with an article describing how he led police on a high-speed car chase yesterday, caused two police cars to crash into each other and was shot at several times. It’s amazing that he’s still alive. As the paper pointed out, “Bakersfield police officers shot at eight people in 2004 and hit their targets six times.”

Johnston got away and is still wandering around out there somewhere. He is wanted for methamphetamine possession (I would have never guessed), parole violation, auto theft, resisting arrest, and assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer.

Clearly he is being framed.
