Dallas “666” anti-gay tagging suspect says they are ‘act of love,’ but blames another person


Richard Sheridan at Jack Evans Police Headquarters on Aug. 14, 2014 (Tristan Hallman/Staff)

A suspect in the “666″ taggings that Dallas police are investigating as a hate crime turned up at Dallas police headquarters Thursday afternoon and claimed he knew the person who was responsible. He also said he agreed with what he did.

Richard Sheridan also didn’t deny that he was the person behind the taggings left on several Oak Lawn landmarks, newspapers and Dallas City Hall. When asked directly if he was denying that he spray-painted the buildings and, in some instances, streets and sidewalks, he replied: “I’m not guilty, I’m not guilty, I’m not guilty.”

The question was repeated to directly ask whether he left the “666″ tags across the city. Sheridan continued to say he was not guilty and that he hadn’t committed a crime. Which is technically true: So far, Sheridan has not been charged.

But sources told our Robert Wilonsky yesterday that Sheridan, a longtime activist and local government gadfly, has been interviewed twice by detectives and is the only person who’s been questioned in connection with the vandalism.

Sheridan did take time to rip gay activists and the Dallas Voice and rant about his displeasure with gay marriage, the TV show Family Guy, pornography and city leadership. He also said the tags were “not a hate crime [but] an act of love — and a warning.”

1. I see he's wearing a shirt of the Dallas Children's Advocacy Center

Hope to hell he's not associated with them in any official capacity.
