Worcester Magazine Walter Bird hit rock bottom when he actually wrote an entire article about a Facebook page with less than 100 followers called “Dolphin Boy Sports.” Walter Boy was trying to make it sound like this page was some sort of competitor for Turtleboy Sports, conveniently forgetting that Turtleboy is a blog, not a Facebook page. But as we all know by now, Dolphin Boy Sports is just another one of Worcester activist blowhard Steve Quist’s “anonymous” pages which he dedicates to felating Joe Petty, Ed Augustus, and Jim McGovern. Not necessarily in that order, or at the same time.
Well poor Steve Quist apparently has lots of time on his hands these days, and he gave Walter Boy a special news bulletin about his policing of the West Side, which you can read about here: Here’s some of the highlights:
“I was cooking on the grill and my daughter came home from work and said, ‘Dad, there’s a guy walking near 7/11 with guns on him,’” said Steve Quist, who resides on June Street, not far from the store. “I got in my car and checked it out. I pulled into the lot and the guy was leaning against the store outside with a clearly visible pistol in his holster. He turned around at one point and I saw what I thought were two more pistols in his rear waistband.”
So let me get this straight. Some guy is walking down the street with a gun on his person, which violates no laws in this state or this country. And Steve Quist’s natural inclination was to get in his car and play super spy? LOL. Can’t make this stuff up. The best part is how he got on the phone with Walter Boy right afterwards to report on his big day!! His sleuthing was far from done though:
The man left the parking lot and started walking up Chandler Street, toward Worcester State University, according to Quist, a well-known city activist. Quist, describing the man as wearing all black clothing, said he called police as he followed the man. As he approached the corner of May and Chandler streets, just shy of Worcester State and the adjacent former Temple Emanuel Sinai building now owned by the university, Quist said a cruiser pulled up alongside him.
“I pointed the man out to him, and the officer stoped (sic) him right in front of the campus,” Quist said. “The officer got out of his his car, with his right hand, appropriately, on his holster. He pointed to the man and was giving him orders, politely, and the man complied.”
Soon, Quist said, several other cruisers, about 5 or 6, converged on the scene. The man was ordered to lean against the hood of a nearby car, according to Quist, and searched.
Someone get this guy a merit badge!! He’s a genuine deputy Worcester Police Officer now. No time for Steve Quist to be scrubbing toilets and annoying his neighbors any longer. He’s got guys with guns he needs to stick the cops on!!! We still remember when Steve Quist was our online henchman.
But then this happened:
“A short time later, Quist said, two officers approached him and told him the man was legally licensed to carry guns. The man was ultimately allowed to walk away. According to a Worcester Police Department spokesperson, the man was carrying two handguns, had a proper license to carry and was within his legal rights. Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst said the man had a larger shirt he had been wearing, but as the day grew warmer, he took the shirt off.”
Oops!!! Turns out it was just a law abiding citizen minding his own business. Luckily our friend Steve Quist tied up valuable police resources on a harmless man who was carrying possessions that he legally obtained. Who cares if those officers could’ve been needed for an actual pressing need, such as a real crime? None of that matters because Steve Quist is the Dwight K. Shrute of the Worcester Police Department, and has appointed himself Assistant to the Regional Dispatcher.
You would think that Steve Quist would take his ball and go home. After all this whole episode was humiliating for him. But then again he has no pride or shame, so he doubled down instead:
For his part, Quist said the incident, “begs a lot more questions.”
“Are the cops on the streets outgunned? It begs a lot of questions,” he said, pointing out the neighborhood in which the man was carrying his guns includes Worcester State, the Jesse Burkett Little League fields and two elementary schools.
“In this whole area, the guy can walk around at will, packed to the hilt with guns? When does it cross the line?,” Quist asked, saying he supports the rights of legal gun owners. “[The man] clearly was making a some type of point. I don’t what it was.”
Are the cops outgunned? This is a real question? Do the Worcester Police have more than three guns? If so then they are not outgunned. Love how he says he supports the rights of legal gun owners, all while whining about this guy exercising his legal rights as a gun owner.
This is why Turtleboy loves Worcester. There’s never a dull moment because we have so many nudniks like Steve Quist who provide us with a never ending source of material. Here’s hoping Steve Quist never gets a new job scrubbing toilets so he can dedicate the rest of his life to giving digital HJ’s to Jim McGovern while keeping the streets safe from law abiding citizens!!
