Oklahoma City man's attackers tattooed ‘RAPEST' on his forehead (Spell much??)
The Oklahoman ^ | 5/4/2011 | Nolan Clay

A mentally impaired Oklahoma City man was held down and shocked in the genitals with a stun gun April 17 while his attackers forcibly tattooed the word “RAPEST” on his forehead, police reported.

Stetson Johnson said he was kidnapped, beaten and had the word "rapest" tattooed to his forehead and "I like little boys" tattooed on his chest. He then had a bar code tattoed on his forehead to cover the earlier tattoo.

The attackers also forcibly tattooed “I like little boys” on the man's chest, police reported.

“It hurt,” Stetson Johnson, 18, recalled Tuesday. “I was, like, ‘Why is this going on? … Why is this happening to me?' They was, like, ‘Just shut up.'

“They just put it on there,” Johnson said. “They was, like, ‘This is what you're going to get and you're going to walk around with this … ' I tried to push my way off of them and they kept on holding me down harder.”

Johnson was taken to Eagle Lake in Del City after being tattooed, police said. There, his hands were taped together. He then was beaten in the arms and head with a baseball bat until he was unconscious, Del City police detective David Abel said.

Johnson stumbled bleeding to a nearby trailer park for help after waking up from the assault, police reported. “I walked … probably about a mile. I crawled and walked. I was, like, ‘I don't think I'll be able to survive,'” Johnson said.

He spent days in a hospital in intensive care.

In jail are four suspects, Richard Lynn Dellert, 31, of Irving, Texas; Zachary Chase Provence, 21, of Midwest City; Kimberly Sue Vergara, 25, of Midwest City; and Lorena Amanda Hodges, 33, of Oklahoma City. A judge has denied bail.

“There's a potential for several more arrests,” said a Del City police spokesman, Capt. Jody Suit.

Johnson and his mother were moving Tuesday from their southwest Oklahoma City home for safety reasons. “I don't want no harm to my family or me or anybody else. … They know where I stay at,” he said.

Johnson has covered up “RAPEST,” apparently a misspelling of “rapist,” with a tattoo resembling a bar code. His mother, Lucy Ford, said she intends to get her son's tattoos removed eventually.

Johnson said he had become friends with Vergara four or five days before his assault. He said he had stayed with her. He said he believes he was attacked first by her former boyfriend.

His recall of the attack differs in some points from what the police investigation determined. He said Tuesday he was attacked at Vergara's house. Police said he had stayed with Vergara but was assaulted and tattooed at the Oklahoma City home of Hodges' mother. Police said Vergara took him there.

Police identified Dellert as a tattoo artist who also is known as Buddha. Police seized four tattoo guns, nine tattoo needles and 17 bottles of tattoo ink from him April 26 in Midwest City.

Detective Abel reported both women admitted they used a stun gun to shock Johnson in the genitals. He reported the women said Provence was the one who struck the victim at the lake with a baseball bat.

One of the women claims Johnson tried to rape her, police and a prosecutor said.

“There was no evidence to support that,” said Suit, the Del City police spokesman. “But, even if there was, the proper action is to make a police report, not take matters into your own hands.”

Police and the victim's relatives say Johnson has a diminished mental capacity that existed before the beating.

I don’t know which is worse: being involuntarily tattooed or being involuntarily tattooed by functional illiterates.

The source disabled comments.

I am guessing that our mentally disabled has a history that the locals were bringing to light.

I know a young man who is mentally disabled. He has done nothing wrong and is the most moral and honest person I know and people call the cops on him all the time. They call him names and they treat him like crap because he is different.

People are real creeps sometimes and these people are creepier than most.

Lisbeth Salander was my first thought too. But I supported her actions, albeit fictional.

“The attackers also forcibly tattooed “I like little boys” on the man’s chest, police reported.”

“One of the women claims Johnson tried to rape her, police and a prosecutor said.”

Contradict yourself much?

I have always said that the world would be a much more dangerous place if criminals weren’t stupid.

I wish my Johnson had a Stetson. But, oh well...

I wonder how many times he’s heard: “Is that a 10 gallon hat or are you happy to see me.”

But seriously. I hope the bastids that did it rot in jail. And Stetson gets laser treatments to remove the tatts.

That's immediately what I thought of.

But Lisbeth can spell.

The acts imitate the book/movie “The Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo” by Stieg Larssen.

But if these clowns had read the book at least they would know to spell rapist. They weren’t even smart enough to be unsure of the spelling. They could have stopped at “rapes”.

There is nothing to indicate why they picked on this guy. Was he in the sex offender registry?

Yep....he got nailed permanently.

I haven't read the third one yet, but it's on my list of books to gobble up as soon as I get home.

The first two were riveting.

Mike Tyson was convicted of rape after admitting he was “way pissed” when an 18 year old beauty pageant contestant refused to have sex with him.

I know people like that too.

I also know some that became drug addicts and will commit any crime other addicts are likely to commit, and some who are angry and violent.

If this were simply some poor soul being picked on, rather than a possible case of vigilantism that might damage the leftist agenda of portraying government in a good light, and citizens as helpless sheep... I think the comments would be open.

I believe "Poor mentally ill man being protected by valiant DA and police" was probably the narrative here, and likely there is an up and coming nifong-esque DA involved.

Rape victims not helped by the system was not supposed to be the case.

As we have seen in the coverage of Durham N.C, what happened isn't important.

Justice isn't important.

The same government office with hide a rapist and help him get off Scott Free (Tracy Cline) or prosecute the innocent over obviously spurious charges (Mike Nifong).

When the papers shut off the debate, their narrative is in trouble.

It is all about supporting the leftist agenda of the moment - and never admitting a mistake.

When the papers close the forums my BS meter goes off. It has been a learned response.

If he is a “rapest” I hope they put him in jail.

Oklahoma City - Four people charged in Oklahoma with kidnapping a man, tattooing “RAPEST” on his forehead and shocking him with a stun gun before beating him unconscious have pleaded guilty to kidnapping and maiming.

Three of the defendants also pleaded guilty to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. The fourth pleaded no contest to the charge during a hearing on Tuesday.

Richard Dellert, Zachary Provence, Kimberly Kirchler Vergara and Lorena Hodges were accused of attacking 18-year-old Stetson Johnson on April 17. Police have said they were punishing Johnson after one of the women accused him of trying to have sex with her.

Dellert and Provence were sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 years of probation, while Vergara and Hodges were given five-year prison terms and five years of probation
