Sometimes stories don’t begin well but they end just how you wanted. That’s the case here when a jogger was caught on video throwing a homeless man’s possessions into a lake. At first he was just known as “Jogger Joe” but now he’s been identified as Henry William Sintay. Now he’s sitting in Santa Rita jail in California.
He was seen by JJ Harris at first and thankfully he began videoing. Sintay was seen kicking around Greg “Jarew” Markson’s items, then eventually throwing them into a nearby lake and trash can.
Sintay is being held on $100,000 bail and is awaiting his next steps. Since Harris posted the video on Twitter it’s gone quite viral and has been viewed over 750K times.

Initially the Oakland Police were called but they were unable to charge him with anything due to the belongings being classified as “debris.”
I wish there was something the Police could do when you are just being a mean person for no reason.
Sintay actually showed up the next day though, and was seen in another viral Facebook video trying to repair the damage he had done. There was just one thing wrong. He denied that he was the same man that came a day earlier and wrecked everything in the first place. He said he was there because he was “trying to do the right (expletive) thing.” Sure man, sure.
Matt Nelson got the whole thing on video, and when others began to question Sintay he tried to steal Nelson’s phone to stop the video from being recorded.
There was a fight that broke out, but not seen on camera. Nelson wrote on Facebook later that day that he was, “dragged by their moving vehicle and hit a few times in the head, but I’m safe now. Still do not have my phone.”
You thought that Sintay was in jail because of the damage he did to the homeless man’s things but nope it was a charge of theft that brought a type of justice to this story.
Nelson went onto say, “Please keep calling it and if Henry picks up, I’d like it back.”
After the viral Twitter video though, people have been pitching in to help Markson, the homeless man. They have been bringing him some essentials to replace what had been damaged due to Sintay’s rampage.
