Inquiring minds want to know?
He's on the "do not respond" list because of his hundreds of calls with loony allegations.
Only one way to find out.

To see John Colby's curriculum shitae, Google search "john e. colby" and visit his LinkedIn page. It's very illuminating.
John's eviction details and more.
John making demands (be sure to click on the embedded links).
A sample of John in "rant mode".
See John's two posts in the comment section.
John Colby endangered several of his so-called "clients" (Steve Lazow and Andrea Morgan) by posting their personal information and pictures on the Internet during the period June through 2 August 2012. In both instances, John posted particularly detailed information about their physical infirmities, health issues, and included several pictures of them on the Internet. In the case of Ms Morgan, twenty-three days after John's post in Indybay, Ms Morgan was robbed.
So, how much did the publishing of Ms. Morgan's health issues, vulnerabilities, and pictures contribute to her becoming a victim of the robbery? How much did the publishing of Ms Morgan's pictures aid the robber in identifying this fragile human being as being a good target for a robbery? John's very quick to remind everyone that he has a PhD in Computer Science and yet even a freshman taking computer science classes knows the dangers of posting personal information on the Internet. As a PhD, John Colby's actions, in that regard, were careless and negligent to the extreme.
John's also careless about posting his own personal information and that of his sister, Pat. Pictures, home address, phone numbers, the list goes on and on. One one occasion, he even posted his credit card number.
One of John's achievements.
Check out the June 12 edition of Robert Norse's FRSC show with John and Pat Colby providing comic and idiotic relief at:
Throughout the show:
--- Robert messes with the heads of John and Pat Colby.
--- Pat/Jabba is kissing Robert's arse throughout the interview (non-stop "I agree with you, Robert")
--- John the Loon comes across as ignorant (Ummmmm.... Ummmmm.... I don't know.) and is constantly being fed words from his puppet master, Pat/Jabba (I guess we know who wears the pants in that family and it isn't John).
Why would Robert bring the Colbys on the show to talk about a subject that they do not sound very competent in discussing? I can think of two reasons. First, after listening to the Colby toadies, it makes Robert sound all that much more intelligent by comparison. Secondly, it probably was a vanity thing. I'm sure Robert just loved the way John and Pat slobbered over and yielded to his points of view.

I received a report yesterday from disability advocate John Colby. Colby observed SCPD Officer Scott Freeman and two First Alarm Security guards at the Metro Transit Center taking an intoxicated man to a squad car. Colby became concerned, having seen the video of last years face first drop to the sidewalk of Richard Hardy by Officer Vasquez (SCPD Officer Vasquez Slams Drunk Mans Face On Pavement at http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2013/04/23/1... ). To document the incident, Colby pulled out his video device. He reports being denounced by a female supervisor who refused to give any ID. She and the guards booth insisted he stop recording because the Public Transit Center was private property. SCPD Officer Freeman made no attempt to protect Colbys rights.
Colby noted that the incident began around 5:30 p.m. near the central coffee shop area the Transit Center where he was waiting for his bus. When he pointed his video device at the incident, a supervisor indignantly demanded what his business was in the Center and then advised him that videoing was not allowed. Colby asked what law was involved, upsetting her. After storming off, she returned with another security guard in tow. John explained to them that he was in an area open to the public and that it was public property. She then pulled out a smart phone, said Im going to take a picture of you. John replied go ahead and smiled and waved into the camera.
Colby also expressed some concern that the one of the First Alarm Security guards began riffling through the mans pockets and wondered if that wasnt beyond the legitimate powers of private security. The angry supervisor and several security guards, he noted, continued to confer and gesture at him, gathering near the bus that he normally took home.I felt intimidated, he said,I wondered if she was seeking more information or trying to make trouble for me with the drivers.
Out of fear of further harassment and delay, John put away his recorder under pressure from the security guard.
As well he might. But Im glad Colby spoke up for everyones right to be at the Metro and document police behavior there. Ive suffered arrest and conviction for doing the same in the past (See Ticketing for Standing and Talking at the Metro Bus Stop Sunday at http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2008/11/04/1... /. However in spite of a false conviction, I have not altered my treatment of the Metro as a public space. Several weeks after I got my citation 6 years ago, I led a protest at the Metro which freely assembled and videoed.(See Rotkin Claims: No Flyering Allowed at the Metro Center at http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2008/11/25/1... )
Later at home, Colby said he followed up by calling the police numerous times to request an informational report from Freeman to document any further misinformation to the public about illegality. After four hours and numerous calls, Colby eventually got a response from Sgt. Christian Le Moss Le Moss, Colby reports, was polite and agreed that he had the right to record, as did the other officer. Le Moss agreed to educate security guards on the issue to avoid future such attacks. Colby requested a copy of a report of the incident to document that promise.
One wonders why Officer Freeman didnt advise the Security Guards and the Supervisor that Colby had the right to record, and to leave him alone. Or at least not to misinform him. Damage control later by Le Moss, however politely given, doesnt mean Metro authorities wont pull this nonsense at the next journalist or passing pedestrian who wants to capture a questionable incident on video or audio.

It's just his turn. Others have come before, and others will follow in the future.

Lets make this national news. Drudge Report. Reddit. WHY are all transit agencies being militarized? Why are these guards assuming authority they DO NOT have?
