Self-professed vigilante Barbara Farris Arrested for Fugitive Warrant

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_gBqVzfLVo&feature=bulletin&videos=Qso_u4YeOkI


Karma is quite the bitch! Barbara Farris was your typical Floridiot, a self-professed vigilante with a crazy idea to get 15 minutes of fame-- she threatened to shut down a mobile home park that rents to registered sex offenders unless they agree to let this lady place cameras around the park to spy on them. Of course, in doing so, she forgot one minor detail. Unlike her targets, she was a FUGITIVE FROM JUSTICE. Cardinal rule #1 of running from the law is STAY OUT OF THE PUBLIC EYE!

A woman who led a charge to put up cameras at an Orlando trailer park to monitor sex offenders has been arrested.
Barbara Farris was arrested Thursday, and county jail records showed she was taken into custody, on a warrant from Alabama on a charge of menacing.
But details about the charge are not known.
Farris is the president of a group known as the Bee Squad, which tracks sex offenders around Central Florida.
She wanted to put up cameras at Lake Shore Village, where around 100 sex offenders live, because she said it's near a school bus stop. [/quote]

In case you are wondering what "Menacing" is:

http://law.justia.com/alabama/codes/13297/13a-6-23.html
 
(a) A person commits the crime of menacing if, by physical action, he intentionally places or attempts to place another person in fear of imminent serious physical injury.
(b) Menacing is a Class B misdemeanor.
(Acts 1977, No. 607, p. 812, §2110.)
 In other words, Farris, a woman who was harassing and threatening people in Florida, had a fugitive warrant for harassing and threatening people in Alabama. 
 Florida unfortunately condones this kind of behavior. After all, Judy Cornett lives in Florida. But for now, the world is safer with one less vigilante scumbag off the street.

your just one of those gross pediphiles arn't you! That judge is one too - its so obvious the way things work in that county...he looks super quilty now to all of us..he loves touching young children and is related to the person who molested Barbara. Shame on all of you! Gross pigs

Oh look, it is one of those Barbara Farris supporters! You people are too much! Barbara is a danger to society and needs to serve some time and then barred from running her vigilante group. People like Farris and AZU make good cases for abolishing the registry because people like her abuse the registry.

Farris's alleged abuse does not give her a green light to stick a gun to someone's head, nor did it give her the right to threaten to shut down the trailer park unless she allowed them to install video cameras around her home. I hope that Farris gets the maximum penalty allowed by law.

We need a vigilante registry for people like her.

ROFL.. what a moron! She's obviously a few roos short in the top paddock to publicise her whereabouts when she's a criminal on the run. Given she's a danger to the public maybe video cameras should be set up around her house.

Farris already paid for some cameras, all they have to do is turn them 180 degrees LOL

It is shocking to me that no one including the media outlets has connected all of the pieces on this woman.She has been and continues to be a menace to society.I knew of Barbara’s scams from decades ago and I can’t stand to see this continue.This is not new, she is a convicted felon.She started these claims of sexual abuse long before any of you even remember.When the heat is on or she needs to satisfy her desire for attention, she cries rape, which is unfair and totally disrespectful to true victims in this world.She has authored and self published a book entitled Lies Behind the Pulpit to scam people. Key, foundational facts within the book are easily proven false through court records.Due to the fact that she wrote and published it herself, there is no requirement that the facts presented be verified.This book is her crutch.Here are some foundational lies within the book verified through official court records on a scam that she attempted to pull 20 years ago that nearly destroyed the life of a man by the name of Bruce Yates.I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that once she is exposed to be a fraud based on the representations of this book, she will lose the one thing that she scams everyone with.Even this supposed trip across the country to film a documentary on child sexual abuse is connected to this book and that is how she gets people to give her sympathy and ultimately money.When she is finally exposed I believe she will become extremely dangerous (i.e the menacing charge currently pending, where she pulled a gun on someone) because she will have no way to use her story to convince others to support her and give her money.She not only craves the money but the media attention.She will do anything to get in front of the camera. She picks causes that appear genuine and carry with them a lot of passion and then she uses them to prey upon people.First, in the book she claims to have been brutally gang raped and left for dead, which left her pregnant.The reality is in the court documents of the Bruce Yates case and show that she was willfully in a relationship, with the man and became pregnant.1 of 3 posts.

There was no gang rape.She became pregnant with her surviving son. In the court documents and articles obtained in the archives of the Orlando Sentinel in 1989 to 1991, she accused Bruce Yates of soliciting her to help him murder his wife.While entering the courthouse to testify she made a brief statement to the press saying that this story was going to make a great movie and she was going to write it.She ruined this man’s life with her lies, accusations and manipulations and she has continued to do so or attempt to do so to others.YATES CLEARED OF SOLICITING MURDER, Orlando Sentinel - Orlando, Fla., Date: Dec 15, 1990.Yates said his life is ruined because of highly publicized allegations that he asked his 19-year-old girlfriend to help him kill his estranged wife and her girlfriend.He was charged with two counts of solicitation to commit first- degree murder and has been in jail since his arrest on Sept. 18.He was fired from his Clermont code enforcement job the day after his arrest.Barbara Farris told Yates' estranged wife, Portia, and Clermont police Detective Bart Frazier that Yates asked her to drug Portia Yates and Carol Bond.She said Yates then wanted her to leave the home so he could mutilate and murder the two women.Frazier testified he spent 15 minutes reviewing Farris' allegations before arresting Yates. Frazier called the 5th Circuit state attorney's office twice after hearing the allegations -once to talk to an investigator and once to talk to an attorney.He was told not to arrest Yates because he did not have enough evidence, but he did so anyway.Key testimony in the case included a claim by Farris that Yates had shown her a gun on Sept. 16 while describing a murder plot.Evidence entered at the trial showed that the gun Farris said she saw was locked in a storage shed at the time because Yates was behind on the locker's rental payments.Charles Fantl, Yates' attorney, delivered a blistering closing argument.Farris, Fantl said, learned several things in rapid succession just days before she accused Yates of plotting the murders.He told jurors that while Farris was on a trip to Ohio, Bruce and Portia Yates went to a lounge and then spent the night together at Bruce Yates' apartment.2 of 3 posts.

Carol Bond, whom Portia Yates testified was her girlfriend, called the lounge several times and left an angry note on Portia Yates' car.Bond told Farris when she returned from Ohio that the couple had reunited.Fantl said that at the same time, Farris learned she was pregnant and said Yates was the baby's father.The defense attorney also described Farris as an amateur screenwriter who usually names her heroines "Barb."He said she wrote one plot in which "Barb" foils a murder attempt.Fantl said Farris made up the story to destroy any chance that Yates might return to his wife."Hell hath no fury," Fantl told the jury."She (Farris) wanted to marry him and she found out that they were getting back together."Fantl reeled off a list of contradictions in Farris's testimony and said the story was concocted to get rid of Yates and any possible claim he might have against the couple's business assets.After the trial, Fantl was wrapped in a bear hug by Yates outside the jail."I lost my job, my truck (it was repossessed) and my apartment," Yates said."I will probably have to leave town, (but) justice was done."This past week on a local radio show, Bucket Head, Barbara claimed that her family has said that her money comes from the mafia.This is not a claim that her family makes out of the blue, read Barbara’s book and discover that it is her claim of such a connection.She claims that she worked for them for years.The story that she tells in the book is about being raped as a child and as a result a runaway that found herself as a drug and money runner for the mob.On the same show, she also claimed that she is currently filming and launching a reality show.This is a pattern, she also claimed to be doing a movie about Bruce Yates.Ask her for proof of a reality show.There are true victims in this world and they need the help of honest people, not ones that manipulate the hurt and pain of others for personal attention and gain.I hope you all begin to see this woman and this situation for what it really is.Barbara helps no one but herself.She only uses and abuses.3 of 3 posts.

You'd be amazed what people would do for a chance to be on Reality TV. Sadly, I heard they were going to give sick vigilante Judy Cornett one too!

You can see on her latest video, she says the menacing charges were dropped:

So she's back to harassing sex offenders again. We should report her to the local police, IMO:

That first post by Anonymous, maybe you should send those slander/libel comments to the judge in question and see what he thinks about those comments.

It wouldn't do for her to knock on MY door! She's just a bully, plain and simple. Unfortunately Florida allows vigilante behavior to take place. When have you ever heard of a vigilante convicted in that state?
