Revolution to Casey Brezik apparently meant slashing the throat of a middle-aged dean at a community college.
The 22-year-old Brezik is accused of attacking 55-year-old Al Dimmitt Jr., the dean of instruction at Metropolitan Community College's Penn Valley campus, before a scheduled press conference by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon yesterday. Nixon, as you can imagine, canceled his presser because there's really no way to follow up a stabbing.
Brezik liked to spread his revolutionary rhetoric to his 24 Facebook friends (I've already changed the number twice because people keep unfriending him), including posting just hours prior to yesterday's attack.
In the hours before yesterday's attack, Brezik posted the cryptic message below.
Revolution....What are you afraid of? If your is so bad that
you want to go about a revolution? You must also be willing to lay your
life on the line being its not worth continuing to live this way.
Otherwise your just making a statement.....Cowards. You kow who you are.
Brezik was apparently living out his anarchist fantasy. In June, he bragged
about getting arrested at the Toronto G20 summit:
Crossed the security fence. Ran from the cops. Was tackled.The Kansas City Star reports
Spit on an officer. Was arrested, charged, and deported. MISSION
that police are looking into whether Nixon was the target
given Brezik's Facebook statuses (for real) and his unique wardrobe choice: a bullet-proof vest. And those reports about "demonic" tats, well, Brezik reportedly has the anarchy symbol tattooed on his hand. So leave the satanists out of this.
probably sees himself as a political prisoner. But his revolution
will have to go on hold now that Jackson County prosecutors have charged
him with two counts of first-degree assault and two counts of armed
Meanwhile, Dimmitt is reportedly in stable condition
after undergoing surgery.
