TYLER CAMPBELL IS A DANGEROUS PSYCHOPATH

TYLER CAMPBELL FROM FLORENCE, ALABAMA, IS A YOUNG MAN WHO WAS ON THE STREETS OF SANTA BARBARA THAT I MET AT THE BEGINNING OF 2019.  HE HAD RODE HIS BIKE HERE FROM LONG BEACH AND WAS ON HIS WAY TO BIG SUR AND NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.  WE GOT ALONG WELL (I THOUGHT) AND HE ENDED UP STAYING AT MY PLACE FOR A WEEK.

TYLER PRESENTED HIMSELF AS ON A SPIRITUAL QUEST AND THOUGHT OF HIMSELF AS "ENLIGHTENED".  HE WAS GREATLY INFL;UENCED BY THE NOVEL "THE CELESTINE PROPHESY", WHICH HE INITIALLY THOUGHT WAS A TRUE AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL STORY.

TYLER LOVED MY LIBRARY WHICH CONTAINS MANY BOOKS ON RELIGION, THE WESTERN ESOTERIC TRADITION, SPIRITUAL PRACTICES AND RELIGIOUS STUDIES. AFTER A WEEK AT MY PLACE, TYLER RODE HIS BIKE NORTH.  WHILE HE STAYED WITHJ ME I WAS VERY GENEROUS WITH HIM, BUYING ALL HIS FOOD AND MEALS.

SEVERAL WEEKS LATER, THE RAINS SET IN AND TYLER FOUND HIMSELF TRAPPED IN KING CITY, CA. WITH NO MONEY AND NO WAY OUT.  HE CALLED ME AND ASK ME TO PAY FOR A BUS TICKET BACK TO SANTA BARBARA.  HE PROMISED TO PAY ME BACK, SAYING HE WOULD GET A JOB WHEN HE RETURNED.

WHEN HE  ARRIVED BACK IN SANTA BARBARA HE ASKED ME TO HELP HIM GET BACK TO ALABAMA.  BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN ACTIVE IN HOMELESS ISSUES HERE IN SB FOR OVER A DECADE, I KNEW HOW TO GET HIM A TICKET HOME.  I MADE A CALL AND HE LEFT JUST TWO DAYS AFTER BEING BACK IN SB.

ON HIS WAY OUT OF TOWN, TYLER FILLED HIS BAGS WITH SOME OF MY BEST SPIRITUAL BOOKS.  YES, THIS ENLIGHTENED SPIRITUAL MASTER RIPS ME OFF FOR A TOTAL OF SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS.

IT HAS NOW BEEN SEVERAL MONTHS AND I HAVE NOT RECEIVED A THING FROM HIM.  NOT THE $43 FOR THE BUS TICKET, NOT THE BOOKS HE "BORROWED".  ALTHOUGH I WAS THE KINDEST PERSON HE MET ON HIS JOURNEY, HE STOLE OVER $150 IN BOOKS AND A $43 BUS TICKET.

AFTER THIS HAPPENED I RE-EVALUATED OUR FRIENDSHIP AND CONSIDER WHAT A CON ARTIST HE WAS, VERY SELF-CENTERED, PATHOLOGICAL LIAR, TOTALLY PRESENTING HIMSELF AS A DEEPLY SPIRITUAL AND "ENLIGHTENED".  HIS TOTAL LACK OF ETHICS CAUGHT ME OFF GUARD.
