Saturday August 17, 2019 1:46 am i arrived at Cortelyou Vintage Bar, 1118 Cortelyou Rd , Brooklyn, NY 11218 to meet 29 Year old’ish Jacob Ogletree whom i met about a week earlier and is currently staying in my home. I brought my professional dlsr cameras as to Cortelyou Vintage Bar. After spending some time with my house guest Jacob , and his friends i went to the back of Cortelyou Vintage Bar next to the dj console and sat in a chair against the back a wall . I made a few (non flash) photographs and uploaded to my phone and then to my twitter account. Estimating… 15 minutes later a bartender approached me saying 2 people complained, about me taking pictures “of them” and that I was not aloud to take pictures inside the small friendly neighborhood bar. He was loud, aggressive, obsessive with seemingly an unusually elevated amount of emotional investment. He kept repeating the last phrase as i spoke to him trying to find a middle ground and seamed to want a physical altercation. estimating… 5 minutes before he was calm enough to return to the bar. Then a guy perhaps 6 foot 3″ approached me and he was angry. He asked me if i knew a certain type of software i never heard of and i did not answer him as he clearly did not appear to be speaking to me in a manner indicative of making a new friend. He then claimed i was lying having not spoken to him using an exaggerate value of my camera as validation for me knowing what he was talking about. Having not yet spoken and or offering any expressions at all he became instantly became loud, aggressive, obsessive with seemingly an unusually elevated amount of emotional investment.
Jacob and i went out side for some “attackerless” fresh air, conversation a cigarette and some vape. Jacob returned to the bar. I was going to do some commentary. The few people outside quickly became more people outside. Then people began Interrupting my commentary.
These people quickly began to physically r attacked me; unprovoked. They took turns… one guy swinging a full bag full of trash at me, as if i was a cartoon character he could hammer into the ground, caught me off guard . It is difficult to pinpoint which person broke what parts my camera though the garbage knock the lenses completely off of my camera crashing onto the concrete . My camera no refuses to speak to my computer. The precision framework is no linger precision an as for a computer controlled camera lenses striking concrete… speaks for itself.
