Sorry guys, I’ve just been busy with life. Bryan has become kinda boring for me. My detractors have accused me of having no life, quite obviously they are clueless.
Nonetheless I still follow his adventures through life, it just has been kinda ho-hum the last few months.
He has bounced around between the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Old Town, San Diego and a veterans shelter. I’ve also seen him spend some time in what appears to be a self-storage unit a while back.
I will try to summarize in reverse chronological order (most recent events first).
Past week or so has been uneventful (at least according to his social media). Nothing particularly interesting.
As far as the church goes, it appears they have evicted him. This is his last post where he tagged his location as being at the church. I don’t know the real reason but I can think of many good reasons why even the church would throw him out.
He is still pursuing his asylum case with the Ecuadorian government. He’s complaining about the case being delayed by the court to 2019. It’s still not clear what Bryan thinks he will get out of this or how he plans on getting back to Ecuador without a passport. (A full document set is on his Facebook page if you have any interest in that and can read Spanish).
What amuses me the most are his attorneys in Ecuador who are willing to take his case (and his money), likely knowing it’s frivolous. I assume they have told him it’s unwinnable. A fool and his money are soon parted.
Bryan’s last post from the Veterans Village was on May 24th.
(By the way, in case any one was wondering, I believe Bryan did serve in the US Army. I do not know his military history, discharge status, and etc. Presumably this was before he went bonkers. So thus he is a veteran. This is also why he is able to get care at the VA Hospital, at least before his altercation last December)
He complained about being set up and framed for drugs:
In a now-removed video, Bryan can be seen with shelter management and a container of marijuana on the manager’s desk. The MJ was supposedly found under his bunk. I have no idea if Bryan was using the stuff – it wouldn’t surprise me but there isn’t enough evidence to say for sure. Bryan swears it isn’t his and loudly talks about how MJ is illegal (it’s actually not illegal in California but it’s probably against the rules of the shelter).
(You can also read Bryan’s account of what happened here on his Facebook page. There’s too much text for me to easily capture here)
Apparently the manager found the video (I guess he googled Bryan Tew’s name) and asked YouTube to remove it. He didn’t want to be in the video. YouTube complied and removed it.
I do have a copy of the video saved but out of respect for the manager’s privacy, I have not reuploaded it. I may upload just the audio or edit the video to obscure the man’s face at a later time.
Bryan now claims it is some sort of CIA/DIA conspiracy but it’s actually pretty self-explanatory what happened:
Here is an unrelated YouTube video of Bryan at the shelter, just to show the environment.
There was also one or more altercations at the shelter between Tew and other veterans who were staying.
As is obvious to anyone who has followed Bryan, Bryan in any kind of social situation means paranoia and trouble wherever he goes.
It’s not clear why Bryan went from the church to the shelter. Perhaps the church was trying to get rid of him and made some phone calls to get him inducted. Who knows.
Move the clock back a few weeks. Bryan Tew is back in the hospital but not for very long. He is ejected by security in a wheelchair. I know this is actually sad but I couldn’t help but to laugh at the video. Sorry if that makes me a terrible person.
What appears to have happened, and I may have the details wrong here (so do not take this as absolute fact), is that a doctor touched Bryan, perhaps to determine where he is feeling pain, and Bryan hit the doctor. There seems to be some conflicting or confusing information in Bryan’s account of the story. It’s not clear if he was ejected for hitting the doctor or if he was ejected for refusing to allow the doctor to do proper diagnostics on him.
Something that I rarely do is agree with Bryan Tew. He says the security staff forcibly took his phone and deleted some of the pictures/videos he took while being ejected. (It’s not clear if he was able to recover the video or if the security guard missed this particular clip).
If Bryan isn’t lying about this happening (and that’s a big if), I do believe he was wronged by the security guard who does not have the authority to simply snatch a patient’s phone and delete a picture or video clip they don’t like. HIPAA only applies to the medical staff, not to the patient. A patient is free to discuss and document their medical care as much and as publicly as they want.
