The Rogue thing was common knowledge in the days of CYD. It's so minor I don't believe it bears mention, the guy has a character and a fetish, that's not uncommon and doesn't really impact his work at AC. Yes, he lies about how squeaky clean furry is to the media. Him getting his crush fetish on doesn't make that lie any more blatant. (Though Uncle Tom comparisons do abound.)
I wouldn't suppose there's a copy of that original journal post? For all that's been said and written about Kage over the past decade, nobody's documented anything in detail about the Dorsai. Their record as a goon squad in fingerless gloves and stupid hats is hilarious enough, and apparently they even filk.
Here's a copy. Thank god for Gmail
To whom it may concern,
My name is Thomas Riccardi (aka Johnny Blanco in the furry community)
and I have been meaning to write this letter for the longest time.
Why? Because this is about one convention and one convention only..
and I know you can guess it.
Anthrocon granted has grown in size and in attendance every year and I
am fine with that. Also it's grown in popularity and of course the
need for a security force has always been prominent at this convention
else there would be utter chaos. So the Dorsai were called in to do a
great security job and all I have to say is this.
You people fail. Every year to do so.
Why do I say this? Simply put you bring on a few bad apples every year
and these bad apples act like cops with a badge. Now I could go ahead
into a tirade of long curses, expletives and on and on but that won't
make you people take me seriously. Instead let me go ahead and bring
up facts starting from this year:
Fact: Like most other big cons of the past (and AC is no exception)
there is always a big dose of drama there that gets around sadly... A
friend of mind apperently was confronted by a Dorsai, ( con seceurity,
of whom should be re-named to Dicksai ) by getting on the elevator on
the third floor. Most know there is a rule that the 2nd and 3rd floors
are restricted for entering the elevators, but simple mistakes happen
late at night ( when there is nobody in the lobboy linup anyways) so
the particular staff member proceeded to rip his conbadge off his
shirt, tearing his badge holder, and also reported he was pushed
agianst the wall.
- Now if im correct, both of those are chargable offences, ( assault,
and confinement) That incident sort fo reminded me of a simmilar one
last year to a friend, where a con staff Dicksai ripped a conbadge
from his fursuit , and ripping out fur in the process. Thats enough to
warrant a lawsuit against the con staff member for damages if he had
persued it. (if that happened here in canada it would have been bad
for the con staff.
After 9 years of attending AC, i coud see a rise in Con staff related
incidents & discrepencies regarding the con security, where some of
the security went a little to far and crossed the line with people,
... its almost like its going to their heads and treating the con like
a military camp in some of the cases. It reminds me of the time when
one of the dicksai ( i wont mention this particular assholes name)
decided to grab the fur on the shoulder of Dakkota and almost tear it,
because i may have been standing a little to close to the bottom of an
escilator for his tastes and authourity went to his head.... I grabbed
his wrist with alot fo force to resist him tearing my suit and told
him to imediately remove his hand or i would imideately call police
and press charges, then after he let go i told him i would be going
back to my room and if i found any damage WHAT SO EVER i would be
contacting my lawyers and filling a lawsuit against him and any
nessasary other parties & sue for damages & assult. Sadly the jackass
still serves on con staff of AC... it probally time for the con heads
to wake up and get a grip on these out of control loose cannons they
have on their Dicksai staff before on of them does somthing stupid and
results the con committee getting in a heap of legal battles,
lawsuits, charges, etc. But its not likely to change untill its to
late and somthing do happen. Anthrocon is getting big, almost to big,
and one day somthign is going to go wrong in a bad way.
This was taken from a friends journal.
Fact: A friend of mine ran the headless lounge by himself. He was told
that he was going to have backup in the way of the dorsai.. guess
what.. didn't happen. This led to the lounge being closed EARLY and
pissing off alot of suiters. Now there are some suiters that do not
want to go back to AC because it's getting too big.
Fact: Anthrocon 2007 my mate was barked at from a Dorsai because he
removed his head during a fursuit parade. Reason he did that? HE COULD
NOT BREATHE! What would you have him do? STAY THERE in the head and
Fact: The security force, dorsai, have been belligerent to some
attendees and vendors/dealers in some cases. They are lacking in good
customer service, majorly. Also from another friends journal
Fact: A friend of mine who shall remain nameless no longer serves with
the Dorsai because of "The way they handle things"
All this leads up to one point.
You have two choices. a) Clean house and severely monitor your staff
at Anthrocon from now on or b) Step down and let someone professional
handle the security for the event.
The reason I say this? Simply put things are going to come to a head
and when they do someone will either be charged with criminal charges
, lawsuit or worse.. the most extreme example I can see is either
someone hospitalized or someone dead.
I will be posting this letter to my LJ and FA account . You don't have
Just felt like venting my frustrations. And you know what? It feels
