The Chief of Police in Shamrock Texas was decent to me when I found him. He looked at me and my truck carefully, sizing up what kind of a person I might be. I think he wanted to see if he wanted me in his town. He smiled and gave me detailed directions to the rodeo grounds and handed me his card. He told me to call if I needed him. I had two pony fillies in the horse trailer this time and a woman with horses is treated well in Texas, even if she drives an old Jeep with California plates. I was tired, been on the road for what felt like forever. I have found that if you need to camp and not be hassled, the best thing to do is ask for permission.
I was pleased when the Chief said he would send his men to the rodeo grounds during the night just to make sure I was OK. He looked in my eyes and said "Can you take care of yourself?". I replied "Yes Sir, I sure can". He was asking in a polite way if I could defend myself. The rodeo grounds were way the hell out in the sticks and there was no cell signal or land line out there. All the better, when I travel I like a quiet camp.
I stopped for food on the way to camp at the deserted arena, there was a guy just hanging around the parking lot. He approached and said he loved horses and he tried to look at them in the trailer but I was already driving away. I don't suffer fools gracefully, especially when I am on the road. I also never allow anyone in my truck. I travel solo. I did allow a strange woman in my vehicle once, and it was not a pleasant experience.
Next morning I took a bath in a horse trough full of cold clean water and loaded up my horses. They had spent the night grazing and stretching their legs. The arena was constructed of fine pipe, and there was grass growing. I headed back to town to gas up and get coffee for me and a McMuffin for Tweeter my road dog.
There he was at McDonalds early in the morning. He seemed to be waiting for me, probably because of the California plates on my truck. I pulled in and parked. Watched him a while. He had a big dog that looked like it had walked 5000 miles, limping with the pads worn off his feet. Dusty backpack that looked heavy (full of hammers and hatchets), tent and guitar strapped to it. He had the crafty wild look of a person who has been on the streets forever, but he also had a smile that had old folks stopping to pet his dog, and maybe bring a few burgers out for him as they left. I passed him off 5 bucks as I walked in the door to get coffee, "Here's breakfast for the dog, feed him first". The guy looked kinda stunned in a "Slap Me Shirley my mojo ain't workin" kinda way. It seemed to me that he expected people to be impressed with him.
He had been eyeballing my truck, and when I came out of the diner he said "I sure could use a ride back to Cali". I said "Yeah your dog looks like he is tired of walking". The guy started following behind me giving me his spiel. I told him I was gonna gas up and I would think about his request to ride back to Cali with me. Dude did not look all that dangerous, except for the backpack full O HATCHETS & HAMMERS.
I could see him and the dog down the road as I put gas in the truck and the idea of having a stinky Jesus hitcher along for hundreds of miles did not appeal to me. The dog however was another smoke. I have a soft spot in my heart for strays. Stray people and stray dogs, even the stray cat or two. I figure if they have just a little help, maybe they can get themselves together.
I did what a sensible person should do when tempted to do the dangerous and ridiculous. I called my best friend. BarbWire asked where I was along my journey West, and I told her I was in Shamrock Texas and there was a man that looked like Jesus on acid asking for a ride. She started raising hell with me on the phone, just like I knew she would. She said he was a grown man and he could find his own damn way back to the West Coast and that he could be a serial killer. She told me that I would end up in a ditch and he would end up with my truck. She made me promise to put the pedal to the metal and head out on the highway pronto. I told her I was just checking in to let her know where I was, and of course I wasn't hauling a drifter around in my truck.
I felt bad about the dog, a hard wind was whipping and it had started raining. There aren't many things sorrier in the world than a cold wet homeless dog. The thought hit me that maybe I should tell him that he and the dog could ride in the trailer with the horses, but I had promised BarbWire, and I am a woman of my word. I have meandered around roadtripping long enough to know better than to associate with drifters. I often hand street folk a few dollars in passing, but I keep on stepping and don't engage in much conversation with them.
I passed by where he was waiting with a hopeful look on his face, I didn't wave as I went. There was an ugly change in his demeanor and his eyes flashed dark and he seemed somehow older and bigger and half mean around the edges. If looks could kill my heart would have stopped on the spot.
Yesterday on the news I saw the Jesus man again. I saw a face on the telly and I knew him from someplace. Well, where was it? HITCHHIKER! It was the same hitcher that tried to get in my truck the last time I did a cross country roadtrip. He has been real busy since I saw him in Texas. He killed an attorney on the East Coast and investigators are linking him to a series of murders all across the country.
I started peering around and saw he had a Facebook page.SEVERAL FB pages. YouTube.Soundcloud.Photobucket.
*~CULT HERO Internet Celebrity Kills Attorney~*
WHAT THE FUK!?! I feel kinda boggled.
The smiling JackedUpJesus hitcher is a killer who wanted me to give him a ride in Shamrock Texas on a rainy day.
Thank you BarbWire, you have always been my voice of reason and the best friend I have in this world.
Shrouded in Viral Mystery, Kai the Hitchhiker Gains a Cult Following
By Sam Laird Feb 06, 2013
And on the eighth day, to quote a famous speech, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker." So God, to paraphrase said speech, made Kai.That's Kai the hitchhiker. Kai the hatchet-wielding saver of lives. Kai the longhaired viral sensation who's become known around the globe despite an off-the-grid lifestyle that's left him apparently oblivious to his burgeoning fame.
See, last Friday, down in Fresno, Calif., Kai helped save a man and a woman. He helped save them from an epithet-spewing, Jesus-invoking mountain of a man hell-bent on violence and destruction. The man had purposely run his car into an African-American utility worker then attacked the woman when she tried to intervene. His attack didn't stop until Kai, a drifter simply thumbing his way through town, went at him with a hatchet. The man lived, but the attack ended.
Kai then gave an all-time classic interview about the incident to KMPH FOX 26 reporter Jessob Reisbeck. The clip, featuring an epic "Smash! Smash! Suh-MASH!" hatchet reenactment, has since gone wildly viral online. Reisbeck's report and an unedited version of Kai's profanity-laced interview have been viewed on YouTube more than 1.6 million times since Saturday.
People from as far away as Ireland and Australia have lauded Kai and his ebullient personality — part adrenaline-jacked stoner, part existential bodhisattva — as a paragon of positivity.
But there's just one problem.Aside from a sporadic series of Facebook updates, Kai has disappeared from public view almost entirely. He's a chosen vagabond, largely cut off from communication, digital or otherwise. For now, at least, he exists apart from the mainstream world that so badly wants a piece of him."He's kind of like a superhero," Reisbeck tells Mashable. "He's impossible to get ahold of because he has no phone and he's this mysterious guy, but he has this hero status."
* * *"Do you have a last name?" Reisbeck asked Kai during their Friday interview."No, bro," Kai said. "I don't have anything"
* * *Reisbeck's Kai coverage has since gone viral and been featured on CNN, Jim Rome, The Soup and The Colbert Report. Cartoons and memes have been made in Kai's honor. But until meeting with Reisbeck on Wednesday for a follow-up interview set to air later this week, Kai himself has had virtually nothing to say. No one, it seems, can get ahold of him. (Believe us, we've tried.)
* * *Christian Worzalla lives in Wisconsin. He's 32 years old. He's never met Kai. He's one of the admins of the "Kai of Dogtown fanpage" on Facebook. He also runs a GoFundMe campaign that aims to raise $1,500 for Kai.In two days, 32 people have donated $321 to the GoFundMe campaign.
Caleb McGillvary, aka Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker, is wanted in the murder of a New Jersey man. He became an Internet celebrity after using a hatchet to stop a homicidal man who claimed he was Jesus from killing innocent people, but now it appears the tables have turned on Caleb McGillvary.McGillvary, better known as Kai the Hatched Wielding Hitchhiker, is wanted in the homicide of Joseph Galfy, a lawyer who was found dead in his New Jersey home May 13. WABC reported the cause of death as blunt force trauma.
In a press conference Thursday morning, Union County prosecutor Theodore Romankow said McGillvary is believed to have has cut his hair short in an attempt to conceal his identity and is considered "armed and dangerous", the Star-Ledger writes. A $5,000 reward has been announced for information leading to his arrest. Mashable notes that a cryptic status update on what appears to be McGillvary's Facebook page may hold clues about what prompted the "dark turn" in the viral celebrity's story:
Those with information about McGillvary are urged to contact Union County Crime Stoppers at (908) 654-TIPS (8477), www.uctip.org or text UCTIP plus a message to 274637.
Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker' arrested in Clark murder
CLARK, N.J. (WABC) -- Internet celebrity "Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker" has been arrested in the murder of a Clark, New Jersey man.The suspect Caleb Lawrence McGillvary was captured by Philadelphia Police at the Greyhound Bus station in Philadelphia. The 24-year-old Internet celebrity is well known on Facebook and YouTube as "Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker."
McGillvary is homeless but considers himself "homefree" and relies on the generosity of strangers for food, lodging and transportation. He is also known as Kai Lawrence, Caleb Kai Lawrence and Kai Nicodemus.
The victim, Joseph Galfy, was found inside his home on Starlite Drive on Monday. An autopsy performed the following day determined that Galfy died as a result of "blunt force trauma". Investigators said Kai met the attorney near Times Square, and a surveillance camera captured images of them.
A post was made to his Facebook page on Tuesday in which Kai claims he was raped by the man. Kai later reached out to some fans in South Jersey, who took him to a train station.
The Union County Homicide Task Force is working with local, state, and Federal officials to locate McGillvary. He is charged with murder in Union County and bail has been set at $3 million by Superior Court Judge Stuart Peim. "I am grateful for the overwhelming response and dedicated effort by the public and law enforcement that led to this arrest," said Romankow. "I believe that everyone is a little safer with this person off the streets."
I graciously acknowledge all the female (and male!) attention I've been receiving, and appreciate it a LOT. my self esteem has gone to the roof of equality and is doing a little happiness without going through it. I haven't acted on it because a lot of people just expect me to tango with them for posterity sake and not for who I am. well, if you've been wanting either now's the time. I'm looking for a single womyn between the age of 18-30, who is confident in who she is and realizes that this will probably change both our lives, hopefully for the better. I'd most def like to meet you first, I think that the script will be something that could put womyn's rights ahead by a generation.
So now that april fools is over the real trick is that i was serious about the porn flick for all who are aware of the half naked pic of me theres apparently a lot of people who want to do a lot of stuff with this dude and i am so in. i want to do an pro womens rights porno about how to deal with pushy guys.

We have received some recent mail about one of our fans Caleb “Kai” McGillvary and his alleged murder charges. Being the only band he has 'liked' on his page and the irony of our name around the accusations has brought us some unfortunate attention. Condolences to all involved, but we hope that Kai is found innocent.
Caleb Kai Lawrence Yodhehwawheh
what would you do if you woke up with a groggy head, metallic taste in your mouth, in a strangers house... walked to the mirror and seen come dripping from the side of your face from your mouth, and started wretching, realizing that someone had drugged, raped, and blown their fuckin load in you? what would you do?
This list is from "Profile of a Sociopath." Is is a pretty good list of sociopathic indicators.
Manipulative and cunning
Grandiose sense of self
Lack of remorse, shame or guilt
Promiscuous sexual behavior/infidelity
Lack of realistic life plan/parasitic lifestyle
Criminal or entrepreneurial versatility
Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical
behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
Has an emotional need to justify their crimes
Unable to feel remorse or guilt
Cult hero or maniac with hatchet. Maybe both? What do you think? These photos show how he changed his looks. The last photos of him show him with facial tats and short hair, he was on the run.
FB and YouTube pages.
If you are so inclined, there are several places you can donate for his legal fund. Bail has been set at 3 million. I am not so inclined since his dog hasn't been charged.
