MASON CITY – Mason City police helped avert potential crimes when they responded to calls from concerned citizens about a man bothering a liquor store.

The incident went down March 27, when police say people reported various concerns involving 36-year-old Brandon Woodside. Apparently, Woodside was various locations within the 400 block of North Monroe south to the 0 block of North Monroe that day, and callers warned police “that he was committing or about to commit a crime at the Liquor Tobacco and Grocery store located at 18 North Monroe.

Officers responded to the area and interviewed witnesses as Woodside had already been in and left the convenience store. Soon, police located Woodside nearby at the 400 block of 2nd Street NW. He was arrested and charged with: Disorderly Conduct for his behavior inside the convenience store; Criminal Trespass for his behavior at North Iowa Transition Center property (located at 408 1st Street NW); Public Intoxication and Interference with Official Acts.

Woodside was taken to jail and later released. He has entered a not guilty plea and awaits a non-jury trial on April 28.

    Peter once told me we should not prosecute pedophiles because in the animal kingdom the alpha male gets to mate with all the young. Dude lives a different life in his mom’s basement.

      How could you not?

      Maybe you’d hold back for a year, two, ten.

      But one day one of them comes on to you.

      Every cell in your body was crafted over millions of years for the sole purpose of ejaculating inside ovulating young teens.

      The smell of her armpits after field hockey practice makes you a beast.

      You’d crack.

      Then live in terror.

      She’s gonna talk.

      She’s gonna write about her crush in her Lisa Frank diary that her parents dig up.

      She’s gonna tell a friend who tells her therapist who tells the cops.

      Suddenly you’re in the chester tank.

    Long before America inflated its carbon emissions during a global warming crisis, or invaded a sovereign but nevertheless oil-rich nation without cause and killed upwards of hundreds of thousands of its people. Long before the age of Hummers, hedge funds and horror-porn flying in the face of resource wars started over tsunamis, famines and floods. Now fast-forward to the present, look into the mirror, and identify yourself as the terrorist you already may be.
