Olympia, WA (10-29-14) — It’s been said nobody knows you’re a dog on the internet. Nobody there knows if you’re sane either. Normally the mentally ill quickly tire of inflammatory hate induced screeds to the editor of their local paper or community blog. This publication, however, has been targeted repeatedly by one calling himself ‘Bob Johnson’. The remarks are directed at who the writer presumes is the editor and accuses the same of “taking photos of young girls without their consent,” of “being hated by the community” and of not qualifying as a “serious journalist.” [etc.]
e.g. “It’s been obvious to me that you are a creepy misogynist from reading many of your previous posts, and observing how much of your free time is spent stalking and taking voyeuristic photos of young girls without their consent.” And, “Hopefully once you have a moment of clarity, and realize that everyone here sees you for who you really are, you’ll move to Alabama or Texas or somewhere where pushy white shitbags like you are a dime a dozen. You’ll feel right at home then, and can sit around drinking sweet tea and talking with the boys about all the young cunts you took pics of that weekend …”
Anonymity is prized by internet trolls precisely because it is so easily abused. Admittedly, ‘Bob Johnson’ is a pretty common name. But, an investigation reveals this particular writer pursuing a campaign of cyber stalking, thinly veiled threats, and harassment uses Olympia as his base of operation and Comcast as his access point to the greater internet world. Is ‘Bob Johnson’ known to this publication?–no, but his profile is becoming more familiar.
There *is* a Bob Johnson who owns Capitol City Guitars on Olympia’s 4th Ave. near Capitol Blvd. If it’s the same Bob, it could explain his sense of entitlement and arrogance. Having attempted to insert himself in this publication, curiosity arose about WHO was baiting this community blog. The writer made it clear he was more than annoyed about photos publicly taken without permission, about “young girls”, and about excluding the object of his ire.
More research revealed the following intriguing facts about someone who may feel quite comfortable using the internet to launch personal attacks and intimidation:
Culture wars aside, there may be a more sinister aspect of Bob revealed in the following Daily Olympian article and comments that followed it as reported in 420 Magazine:
POT Bust Nets Teacher
LACEY, WA – A North Thurston High School teacher is among three Olympia-area men accused of operating a marijuana-growing operation in a Centralia home, according to Lewis County law enforcement.
Glenn D. Larson, a Spanish-language teacher and the girls bowling coach at North Thurston High School, owns a home in the 100 block of Davis Hill Road in Centralia that law enforcement officials say had a crawl space remodeled with an “unusually elaborate” setup for growing marijuana.
“Usually, we find extension cords hanging from the ceiling,” Lewis County Sheriff’s Department Commander Steve Aust said. “They had ballasts that were properly mounted. The wiring was done in a professional manner.”
Larson and Larry D. Williams both of Lacey and Noel W. Lieseke of Olympia face charges of manufacture of marijuana, a felony.
Larson and Lieseke were booked into the Lewis County Jail on Wednesday and made initial appearances in Lewis County Superior Court on Thursday afternoon. Both were released from custody shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday, jail records show.
Aust said he did not know what Williams and Lieseke do for a living; he added that they are not teachers or professional electricians.
Aust said he was not sure how the three men knew one another but said that there was evidence that all three had participated in the grow operation.
There is no evidence that students were involved, he said.
The Lewis County PUD tipped off the task force after finding electricity improperly diverted to Larson’s house, Aust said.
Law enforcement officers found about 700 marijuana plants in various stages of processing, including 360 plants growing, during a raid Jan. 25, he said. No one was at the home.
Williams was arrested Jan. 29, and Lieseke was arrested Wednesday.
Officers arrested Larson after school Wednesday at the North Thurston district office, Aust said.
Larson is on administrative leave; whether he will be paid will depend on the outcome of court proceedings, district spokeswoman Courtney Schrieve said. She said district officials are cooperating with law enforcement and are working to get a permanent substitute for Larson’s classes.
Girls bowling, which Larson has coached for seven years, ended with a trip to the state competition last week for one bowler.
“It’s unfortunate, and it’s a distraction. But we’re about making sure that we can get the kids on track in their classes,” Schrieve said.
A felony conviction could affect Larson’s teaching license, even though the charge appears to be unrelated to his job, said Charles Schreck, director of the Office of Professional Practices, which has not started any investigation on this case because it has not received a complaint and Larson has not been convicted.
Teachers are expected to live up to a standard of “good moral character and personal fitness,” which includes not having felony convictions, Schreck said.

Well, the teacher’s trial is set for Feb. 14. I (Noel) was slapped on the wrist (30 days home monitoring and 24 mo. probation). My deal was sweet because I did not give a statement to the police/court. What they didn’t tell you in the Olympian (though it was printed in the Lewis County Chronicle, Feb. 11th 2010) was that Robert Johnson (owner of Capital City Guitars in Olympia) who was the funding for the construction of the operation and labor organizer, was the one who turned state witness and gave an hour long statement to the police to keep himself out of jail. What a slime-ball! The cops decided not to enter two 25-gallon bins full of finished buds in the evidence list (which shouldn’t surprise anyone) and the district attorney has based his case on lies against the teacher, an obvious political and media attention scheme. It ended up there were only about 500 plants, and about 100 were ready for harvest–beautiful Romulin and Northern Lights. The power connection was done poorly, in very wet conditions (underground spring went right through there). One of the poles shorted out, which didn’t affect the grow space. Yet the house had lost the 240v appliances, as well as the neighbor’s on the road reported loss of their 240v service. I would suggest to keep your place under 8000w and stay on the grid. Open other operations if you want to expand. There were 35,000w at this place; it would have probably worked if it weren’t for the connection. It’s not worth the risk.

That is a lie! Noel ratted on the teacher too! Bob Johnson ran up a $30,000 credit card bill at Home Depot. Bob Johnson from Capital City Guitatrs, who rolled and lied before he even had a deal, had his employees and girlfriend prune and cultivate with Larry, and Noel. Bob Johnson did all the electrical. He even tried to get his landlord, Sandy, in trouble, if it would have gone federal. He said Sandy is an east coast Jew, who made his money selling coke in the 70’s and 80’s; now he is legit through real estate. Bob Johnson is such a moron, he did not even consider the statute of limitations. He is a liar and a rat! Larson is innocent! It only takes 2 people to lie and get you in trouble, so look out people!
Larry Williams and Bob Johnson rented the house from Larson, who lives in Olympia. The house is in Centralia. There is a lease agreement with Larry Williams name on it. Bob Johnson sold and sells pot out of his store, Capital City Guitars, in Olympia, putting it in a guitar case. He also buys stolen guitars from a pawn shop in Centralia. Then he sells them on e-bay under the name “Bobby Vegas.” Bob Johnson was the ring leader. He got Larry and Noel to implicate Larson, then rolled on them!!! The truth is told!!!!!!!!!!!

What a screwed up story from the beginning.

F’d story. No partners ever!! Doesn’t usually work out well.

This makes me very sad for this Larson fellow. From what the poster RATBOBJ says, it seems he had no involvement what-so-ever. Well, beyond owning and renting out the location.
I was kind of wondering if the house was just owned by one of the three (from the article) and it seems we have our answer. Bad times. I really hope he doesn’t get screwed over (further).

Yeah, Bob Johnson walked away without a scratch. Larson owned the home with other family memebers. They built it for their Mom after their Father died. Bob the rat, could have taken responsibility for himself; he would have received probation.
