Valerie "Valigator" Parkhurst in a NUT-shell

This post is a very brief summary of Valerie Parkhurst.

So just who IS Valerie "Valigator Parkhurst? Simply put, she's a vigilante (both online and offline), a gun-toting Tea Party nut, an alcoholic, a racist, and a criminal.

Sadly, Val has been given numerous opportunities to show the world how wicked she is, and we've discussed her a lot already, but here I simply want to hit the high points. 

According to the Orlando Sun-Sentinel, Ol' Valigator has been harassing those convicted of sex crimes since the mid-1980s. She claims she "only targets the worst of the worst," but we know different. Valerie was best known for her 2007 arrest for pulling a gun on a registrant she was harassing, also mentioned in the article. 

Lt. Wayne Boulier, Davie police spokesman, said he can understand that neighbors are concerned when a registered sex offender moves into a community. "Still, that doesn't justify pulling out a gun and threatening to kill people," he said.

Val's attorney referred to her as a "modern-day Annie Oakley." Hm. Annie Oakley was a turn-of-the-century entertainer known for her shooting. Maybe he's at least half right. Other bloggers were quick to point out Valerie's 2007 arrest was her SECOND assault charge. 

Dec 26, 2007
Parkhurst wants people to understand she does not just 'fly off the wall.' An avid target shooter who practices clay shooting at least once a week, she applies the same focus to finding information about violent sex offenders.
This her second aggravated assault charge. It's obvious she does fly off the handle. She could have stayed with her vehicle and waited for the police. 
From this statement.
It's an eye-opener,' said Judy Cornett, founder of Safety Zone Advocacy Inc., a nonprofit group that aims to protect children and help victims.'You don't want to agitate them [sex offenders]. I think that it probably would have been more in her interest to call 911 and let the police handle it. But sometimes when we panic, we make mistakes.'

She made a mistake and must pay for it.
She expects the sex offenders to pay for their mistakes and in facts adds to their punishment.

The statement of her going after only vioent sex offenders is a blatant lie. She never discriminated. Anyone even suspected was targeted.
Her lawyer had her shut down her blog because of all her incriminating statements. But it is too late, it will be available by the isp and her hard drive will be forensically recovered since she will surely have erased everything.

And then lets get into all the hate emails she sent....this is going to be fun.

Alfred Parkhurst died in 1991. I wonder if Valerie Parkhurst had anything to do with it. PS: Does anyone notice the HUGE age difference? Alfred was born in 1919, Parkhurst was born in 1955. That would be about 36 years of age in difference. Valigator is more like Anna Nicole than Annie Oakley.

This screenshot also confirms that Alfred Parkhurst was a convicted felon:

No one should be surprised she was not only allowed to express her opinion in the Sun-Sentinel, 

and had the audacity to create an online Free Valigator petition (which never reached its goal of 100 signatures), law enforcement eventually dropped the charges

Valerie is also known for being a pesky blogger with a penchant for harassment (which culminated in her 2007 arrest). What what long-time readers may not be aware of is once upon a time, Val supported Once Fallen. I even have a screen shot and link to prove it :)

Amazing huh? Yup, we emailed. We talked on the phone. I even signed her petition. I even had ol' Valigator on Episode 8 of the ReFORM Radio Show. And she even attacked AZU on my behalf:

But I've known her long before that, through a defunct site called "sexcriminals." It was an open forum for both sides of the sex offender issue to duke it out on sex offender topics. Not sure why Val defended me against douchebags like "Anti," "PVulcan," and "DP1", but she was there. It certainly was surprising given Val's hate was pretty clear even back then:

However, as even my fellow activists will admit, I can be as hard on my friends as I can my enemies. I don't tolerate certain things, like Val's well-documented hate of Hispanics:

And yes, she's an ultra-Conservative right wing nut. Among her other profiles, her account at "Patriots For America", which state on their mission page, "Make no mistake, Patriots For America members will not waste time personally attacking (family, religion, etc) politicians but we will aggressively attack the liberal, socialist, anti-America positions, policies, and decisions being made by the Obama Administration and United States Congress." Val is also on the "Patriot Action Network", another place where you find such stimulating topics as "Is Harry Reed a Pedophile?" Maybe that's why even ol' Valigator is afraid of making her profile public. 

And quite frankly, I was quite embarrassed by Val. You have no idea how many drunken rants I've endured over the years trying to understand why she has such deep-seeded hatred of Hispanics, liberals, the homeless, and ex-offenders. I hoped to use that "friendship" to get through to her, but she was unremorseful and unrepentant. 

As I continued to dig into "The Life and Times of Val" as she puts it, an interesting name popped up. Justin A. Collison. So who is Justin A. Collison? Well, he runs a self-employment painting and pressure cleaning business out of VALERIE PARKHURST'S home. But wait, there's more!

There was Justin A. Collison, who was in the news recently, in trouble for an unprovoked attack on a black homeless man; he's also the son of a Sanford Police Lieutenant, and he was forced to pay restitution for the unprovoked attack.  And we refer back to the mysterious poster who was once again quick to make the connection between Valerie Parkhurst and Justin A Collison:

Hey Valigator. Are you any relation to Justin Collison, the son of a Sanford police lieutenant, who was caught on video beating up a homeless man in early December? I know you name is Valerie Gay Parkhurst aka Valerie Gay Collison and that you were married to a felon named Alfred Brainerd Parkhurst. You were born November 19th, 1955 and know a man named Chaffe Scarborourgh. All this information is available online.

So Valerie Parkhurst is really Valerie GAY Collison. And apparently a Collison is a higher up in the police force. Coincidence? Maybe. Is this Justin Collison related to Valerie? Most likely. 

Collison has been in trouble with the law before but never convicted. He was arrested four years ago, accused, along with another man, of shooting a motorist in the chest after a beer bash at his grandfather's ranch in Volusia County. Prosecutors dropped that case, though, after they failed to determine which of the two pulled the trigger. And at age 17, Collison was charged with beating and choking his girlfriend and damaging her home. Prosecutors dropped those charges after his family paid for repairs and the girl stopped cooperating.

So Val is claiming this is just a big coincidence. But what are the chances there are two Justin Collisons so close to each other in the same state, with Val bragging of having connections with law enforcement, and we see a cop's son with the same name in the internet beating homeless people on Youtube. But, Valerie expects us to believe this is one big coincidence. If these are not the same people, it is hard to believe Collisons are not connected somehow. 

Despite all this, Val is distrusting of police:

Guess what? She's also suspicious of the homeless:

Since I decided I could no longer tolerate the Valigator insanity, I finally exposed her and as a result, she has taken to attacking me on a regular basis. Today she proclaimed she sent letters to my neighbors about me (a criminal offense by the way), but this is merely her latest cry for attention in a long line of stupid actions over the years. 

I love how she has changed her view of the "antis," going from calling them "a bunch of kids playing keyboard warriors" to calling them "child advocates."

So as of now, she's hosting a blog targeting reform advocates on Facebook and trying to unite the various vigilante sites. So she sometimes calls herself "Stop Florida Action Committee" and sometimes her real name.

Her only friends are fellow trolls like Cynthia Harvey:

Val has claimed to have chased registrants away:

Another Val rant, combining "illegals" and "sex offenders":

Val supporting serial killer Patrick Drum:

In Val's "old age", she finds the real cops a "last resort" for handling problems:

Val suggests cutting foreigners in half:

And I haven't even included the incidents where Val has contacted the children of those she attacks (I don't have screenshots for those but the complaints are out there). 

Here is Val opposing the concept of putting ex-felons back to work:

Val isn't well-liked wherever she goes:

Bob wrote:
How is Chief Adderley supposed to know about every homeless persons background within the city of Fort Lauderdale? The valigator is living on fantasy island. I think Adderley handled the matter properly. Once he found out about the problem, he addressed it. It sounds like you want Adderley to violate peoples constitutional rights. If the Validator isn't happy with the way Fort Lauderdale is being run, well then I suggest you move. Or if you feel you can do a better job running the city, why don't you run for office instead of being a monday morning qb.

The deeper one digs into the "life and times of Valigator," the more you'll find yourself wondering why she's even allowed to live free when she is a bigger danger to society than those she attacks? Only in FloriDUH!

PS: As for anyone who thinks I'm only "gay-bashing" by referring to Valerie Parkhurst as a lesbian, well, Valerie Parkhurst admits to being gay:

That was one of the best blog posts I've ever seen. I'm impressed with your tenacity and not surprised by her "habits." Keep up the good work and thank you for all your hard work.

Excellent sleuthing. I've seen her around. She lives on other people's pain. The best solution for her is either starve her for attention by never responding to her, OR even better, respond to her with nothing but love and concern. That will steal her thunder, and starve her of the pain she needs to feel better about herself. Don't be sarcastic, respond to her with genuine concern and affection. :)

Well I've known Val a loooong time, and we used to talk as friends, and she used to support my efforts. But then I supported a group she hates, Florida Action Committee, and Val decided to attack me. She's a backstabber and can never be trusted, because she only cares about hurting others and drawing attention to herself.

This woman is an absolute sick bastard who has chosen to launch a modern day witch hunt, probably she would even burn people at the stake if she could... she is very dangerous and needs to be locked up herself. I hope you guys mange to educate the general public about what she really is, and that they will come to realize the truth about her.

This incredibly trashy woman first tried to prove she ahs lots of balls by shooting defenseless alligators. Then she chose to pick on people who made some mistakes and harass them mercilessly even though they already served their debt. She is a sadistic whore who just wants publicity, and needs to be put away herself, immediately if not sooner.

@ oncefallendotcom: I applaud you following your convictions by supporting the Florida Action Committee. This country should not be the kind of place where a confused kid gets put behind bars for 10 years because he clicked on a picture. We are beginning to look less and less like a democracy and more like a tyrannical police state! The people who make that stuff should be punished, but not some hapless loser who just looks at it some dumb reason. Hopefully sanity will eventually prevail, but hateful creeps like Valerie want to prolong the agony even for the lightest offenders because it's what they get off on.

There will always be haters. For example, people who hated freed black slaves created the Ku Klux Klan. Much like the modern internet troll, they wore hoods to mask their identities, because they knew what they did was wrong. Such is the case with the so-called "antis" today. Many hide, but a few are dumb enough to show their faces. People like Valerie, aka Elmer Fudd. Fuddinator reminds me of Westboro, they don't hide their faces, yet they troll in real life. Like Fuddigator.

The only reason Valerie Parkhurst is even out of prison is because FloriDUH allows vigilante violence to occur.

@ LJW67... forget about the concern and affection approach -- you may as well try that with a rabid werewolf. Btw that b**ch ha sre-defined the meaning of the word UGLY. In fact I'm willing to bet she doesn't own any mirrors because anytime she looks into one, it cracks!

She stole one of my posts from DS from the start of my relationship with an RSO. She tried to say some horrendous things about me and paint me as a victim. Sure, Val, I'm the "victim" living in a 4 bedroom house as a stay at home mom with the most caring loving provider that I've ever known. An RSO isn't the same as a child molester but its all black and white to people like her. I don't live with a man that is going to hurt my (our) kids the moment I turn my back, no matter how much Val hopes it will. He'll be off the registry in less than 2 years and then he'll be adopting my youngest who he's been raising since the beginning. Sorry, Val, your horror story isn't going to happen in my family.
