Key West homeless seer stranded in Florida City not allowed back into Florida Keys asked God for help and was brought back to Key West and later developments

I have written many posts about the often stranger than fiction adventures of  Key West homeless woman Kari Dangler, whom I slowly came to realize is a seer. She doesn't like Key West's homeless shelter, KOTS, and sleeps outside at night in a hidey hole. KOTS is on the sheriff's land on Stock Island, the next key above Key West.
Email chain about Kari being stranded in Florida City, started by me to the sheriff:

Hi, Sheriff Ramsay - 

Sorry to bother you during this very trying time. I've been keeping up online with your and you[r] troops' tough efforts.

Kari Dangler, a homeless friend of mine, frequent KWPD arrested visitor in your Stock Island detention center, shows 3400 College Road (KOTS) home address on her Florida ID. When Kari first came to your detention center several years ago, she had lived for a number of years with a Key Largo man in his home, where she was arrested by a p[r]ior sheriff's deputies. 

As reported by Kari, several weeks ago, she traveled with a homeless man friend by Key West Marathon shuttle, and then by mainland bus shuttle, to a Florida City motel. The man had money and paid for the motel room and groceries from nearby Walmart. After a while, your checkpoint at the top of the keys went into force. Yesterday, the man told Kari to leave within a few day's time. Being homeless in Florida City, which Kari does not know, could be very bad. 

Kari says she and the man do not show coronavirus symptoms. 

My question is, if I can get Kari to the Miami West Greyhound station and on a Greyhound bus to Key West, will she be allowed through your upper keys checkpoint? 

Thanks,

Sloan Bashinsky

Sloan, I am sorry, but according to the County rules she would not be allowed in at this time.  She might not show signs of the virus, but could have it and be a medical threat to KOTS and the Key’s.

Thanks. Sheriff

Kari told me tonight that she was tested 4 days ago by a roving vehicle clinic and scored negative and she has the paper report. I said there is no way she or you can know if she later became infected. Even if she she gets tested tomorrow, still no way to know if she gets infected tomorrow afternoon. I told her that I think this has to do with her being homeless and KOTS, and if she had a home (house, apartment) in Key West, she would be allowed to return. But then, how can it be known if anyone coming into the keys for any reason is not infected? 

I hope God has a rescue plan for her.

I as well hope that she can get back on a good path. 👍

Hi again, Sheriff Ramsay

Hope all is well with you and your family and friends.

Here's a Kari Dangler update.

I read Kari your email about her not being allowed back into the keys, because she could be a threat to KOTS and the Keys. Kari’s deadline to leave the motel room loomed. Her and my efforts to get her out of Florida City to somewhere else failed. I told her to get quiet and tell God she needed help and advice. She said she would do it.

As reported by Kari, about 15 minutes after she made the prayer, she spoke on the phone with a homeless friend in Key West, who stayed nights at KOTS. He said he had a homeless friend who stayed at KOTS and had a car, and they would come get her and bring her back to Key West. Two days later, the two men drove to Florida City, picked Kari up at the motel, and headed back down US 1. When they reached the checkpoint operated by your sheriff deputies, they were stopped, asked to present photo IDs, which they did, and were waived through and made it back to Key West. 

I told Kari that it looked like God wanted her back Key West. 

Kari said she called KOTS the day she returned, and was told she could not stay there, because KOTS was not accepting new clients. I said a time will come when KWPD finds her sleeping outside at night and she tells them what KOTS told her. Kari also may tell KWPD what she told me: that she is coughing up mucous from her lungs for about a week. Maybe KWPD will not risk putting Kari in a police cruiser. I figure you don’t want Kari in the detention center.

I am copying Key West City Commissioner and attorney Sam Kaufman with this correspondence, because I saw him in a dream last night; he successfully defended Kari in a trespass arrest by KWPD; he had a great deal to do KOTS being built in 2004; and he, Father Steve Braddock and Florida Keys Outreach Coalition ran KOTS for many years.

You should notify KOTS of her signs and who picked her up so they can take measures to protect the others.  You should as well advise the health dept.

Hi again, Sheriff Ramsay -

I live in Alabama since late fall 2018 and think you, Sam Kaufman and county officials you copied should take this from here.

I called Kari and and said I had emailed you this morning and what you replied. She was not happy with me (understatement).

Kari said the mucous is due to she quit smoking while she was in the Florida City motel, where she was tested negative for coronavirus by a mobile testing clinic; she had smoked since she was in high school. She said she has not had fever, scratchy or sore throat, infected sinuses, or a deep cough; she isolates and wears a mask everywhere she goes, which she told me the other day is required of everyone down there. 

Kari said she does not know the name of the man who drove his car to get her in Florida City, but he is known as "Cheech". Kari said that about a week ago the other homeless man, Joe Patton, wrecked his bicycle, fell off and fractured a hip that had been replaced, and was taken by ambulance to a mainland hospital, Adventura? Kari said Joe told her on the phone the other day that he was tested negative for coronavirus prelude to hip replacement surgery.

I told you in an earlier email that Kari told me that she and the fellow she was with in the motel were tested negative by a mobile clinic.

I use the blue paper to keep up with coronavirus infections and related government proceedings in Key West and the Florida Keys.

Ms. Gray said her son, Will, is terrified because his cellmate was coughing all the time and had been asking the guard for medication for nearly a week but guards had ignored his pleas. “He wants to warn of a potential outbreak of COVID-19. His cellmate is sick and showing symptoms of COVID-19, coughing and running fever,” Gray wrote...

 ·FWC: Captain David Dipre said that FWC is seeing a large numbers of non-residents in the County.
“The FWC was out on the water this weekend. A large number of out of town people on boats – definitely non-residents we did a lot of checks. But that is what was expected once Miami began to open up the boat ramps. About 150 boats – maximum – at Whale Harbor. Rodriquez was also busy. Playa Largo was also very busy on the water. We worked all of those areas.”
“North of the checkp…

Key West City Manager, Greg Veliz, announces Key West beaches and parks are open to residents...

A Key West friend told me a little while ago on the phone that restaurants and retail stores down there were allowed to reopen at 25 percent capacity. 

I understand the need to reopen down there and hope there is not a coronavirus resurgence.

After returning to Key West from Florida City, Kari reported days of vomiting, and then all coming up was black fluid. She also had diarrhea. She said she had stopped drinking vodka when she was last in the sheriff's jail, and had not drank since. She endured the DTs when she was in the motel. I said black stool means blood in the stool, but black vomit could be bile, the gallbladder and liver purging decades of drinking vodka. I said it might be an angel-designed purge. The throwing up and diarrhea slowly eased, ended. Then, mucous started coming up out of her lungs. I said that looked like purging decades of smoking cigarettes. She said, no way. I said, for real, that's what smoking does to the lungs. Be grateful. Angels of the Lord have plans for you. Be grateful. She did not seem entirely grateful, but she did seem to think I might not be entirely full of shit.

When Hurricane Irma seemed headed toward Key West in late August 2017, Kari called me to report that when she woke up in her hidey hole around dawn, she saw two giant arms and hands come down through clouds and nudge Irma slightly eastward. As Irma closed in on Key West a few days later, she turned slightly eastward and Key West only experienced her "clean side", while 20 miles up US 1 to Key Largo received Irma's "dirty side", which was much worse than her "clean side". Neighborhoods below Seven Mile Bridge were wrecked and covered with debris piles, boats, wrecked land vehicles; canals were filled with debris and sunk boats; old trees were uprooted. Key West was spared because Kari was trapped in Key West. I published the Key West City Commission should give Kari a key to the city, a free apartment, and a monthly stipend for life. Instead, KWPD kept putting Kari in Sheriff Ramsay's jail for hanging out in public places KWPD had told her not to hang out.
