    AN activisit who claimed police were going to kill him was found dead just days later.

    Firefighters called to John Lang’s Fresno home, earlier this week, found he had been stabbed and his house set alight.


    But in a shocking twist the anti-corruption whistleblower seems to have predicted his own death – and named his potential murderers – in the days before he died.


    “If anything happens to me in the next day or two it will be the result of Fresno PD, my neighbour and employee at my job Payless Brakes and Tires.”


    The following day he sent a message to local TV reporter Corin Hogarth, asking him to investigate.


    He wrote: “Corin, you want some news? Corrupt Fresno cops are going to try and kiss me this weekend, possibly tonight. This is no joke.”


    On January 16, John posted a video of a van parked outside his home, which appeared to belong to a carpet cleaning company, and a man hanging around outside.


    He wrote: “If I turn up missing or dead tomorrow remember this Van.

    “I think I seen a couple of guys sneak out the side door and into the building when it was parked in the carport this afternoon.

    “I've been causing the City of Fresno a lot of problems recently which I now regret.”


    Lt. Joe Gomez , of the Fresno Police Department said it was “Unknown if the stab wounds caused the death or the smoke inhalation, it’s too early to tell.”

    His neighbours were shocked by the killing, in broad daylight.

    Tamara Olivarria said, “He just got those lights fixed and the gate is locked so I’m not sure how anyone would have got in even, but it’s kind of scary.”

    Another neighbour, Theresa Fuentes said that “If it’s a random thing, that makes it much scarier because the neighbourhood is getting better, we thought.”

    But was John Lang’s death a random thing ... or did he predict it himself?

    Guy does seem like a textbook nutcase but I doubt he stabbed himself multiple times and set the house on fire. Screwy story.

    I really have a hard time respecting what someone says when they cannot even use proper spelling and grammar. In my head they get knocked down a few pegs on the intelligence scale and then I can't respect their opinion.

    I am being targeted by multiple City of Fresno departments and the Fresno Sheriff's Office for comments I made on the Fresno Bee from 2009 to 2013. Comments that were critical of the way Fresno PD and Fresno Fire utilized their budgets. My Disqus handle during that time was "John21". Posters on the Fresno Bee, using the then Disqus comment system were suppose to be anonymous. However, Fresno Bee employee Jody Murray shared Fresno Bee log data and ip address information with Jared L McCormick, a Fresno Sheriff Sergeant, who then used the Fresno Bee provided information to retrieve name and address information in order to maliciously track-down, stalk, and harass Fresno Bee comment posters, including myself. McCormick's Disqus handle on the Bee was "Hikerdude1967". I notified Jim Boren, the then Fresno Bee Editor via email on two occasions in 2013 regarding an employee at the Bee who was sharing website ip and log data of Fresno Bee commenters with Fresno PD and Fresno Sheriff personnel. I explained in these emails that as a result of Jody Murray's nefarious efforts Fresno Bee commenters were subsequently stalked and harassed by Fresno Law Enforcement. I never received a reply from from Mr. Boren on either occasion. However, consequently, I have been made a constant target of harassment, intimidation, and worse by multiple City of Fresno Departments and the Fresno Sheriff's office.

    haha, suddenly he's pro-gun!

    A tire store, a neighbor, and a police department. That is some conspiracy.

    Fresno and Modesto have horrible reputations. The guy sounds paranoid. Maybe with good reason.

    just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not following me
