I've been following this story on the tv for a little while. Seems a little bizarre. This guy, James Lee, held several people hostage and said he had several bombs ready to go off. Apparently he had a huge problem with overpopulation and wanted Discovery to change its programming to not "glorify" the birth of babies.
Police killed him a few hours ago.

Thoughts?

Maybe he should get angry at the old people that are surviving. then the population would have no issue.
People in the pit take my post way too seriously.

There's really not much to say... he's pretty crazy. I've been following this too. I don't think many sane people would agree that childbirth is disgusting and that babies should never be born...

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?

lol

heard about this earlier.

Didn't think he'd end up dead.

My friend found his myspace earlier. His blogs are interesting.

He like, thought that people were overpopulating the planet and that we should stop having babies, to which the only obvious solution is to hold captives at the Discovery channel building.

thats ridiculous. sure the earth as a whole has an overpopulation problem, but thats no reason to hold innocent people hostage.

What on Earth?!

That guy is krazy, with a k. The Discovery channel is awesome, there is not rational reason why taking people hostage would work.

I hope no one else got injured.

Nope. Only the gunman was killed.

His list of demands were really freaky and his method was even freakier. o.O

And now, thanks to him, all the right wing crack pots are probably going to use him as an example and attack on environment protection, evolution and atheism.

Still, very happy that all the hostages are safe & sound.

"He made several references to the novel “My Ishmael” by environmentalist Daniel Quinn, which tells the tale of conversations between a 12-year-girl and a gorilla named Ishmael, who is seeking to hire a student to help save the world. "

Why?!


Because of his ridiculous demands, the things posted on his Myspace (?) and his influences and reasonings. And you know the right media, they're going use him as an example of "the real environmentalist and heathen" and paint the environmentally conscience and pro-science as this type of weirdo just to manufacture their points and agenda.

Actually, I've been going over this in my Geography class here at uni. He said he held up the building due to not enough broadcasting of the dangers of population control, right? Well, unfortunately, that programming is catering to the wrong people. In fact, the US and other such "civilised" countries have the lowest birth rates in the world. Wanna know who has the highest? "Third world countries." Some of them are getting more advanced now, so their medicine is actually keeping more kids alive, thus leading to what appears to be overpopulation. But as the population grows, according to Balpus's theory, so does the ability to provide for that population.

In short, this dude was fucking batshit insane.

Well, I suppose his death helped the world's overpopulation problem, so...that is pretty neat.

Well there's one less person in the population. I guess that's one step towards his goal.

He had been protesting outside the building for two years. I find it sad - clearly he saw no results coming from peaceful protests and handing out fliers, so he decided to get drastic, and died because of it.

His ideas didn't sound that crazy or irrational, just not practical. It's too bad things turned out this way - I doubt he would've killed anyone though, or rather, I don't think he planned on killing anyone when he took hostages.

anyway, what a poon. he should have held a maternity ward hostage if he was really that passionate.

At least his motivations were right. Taking hostages wasn't the best way of going about it though... Shame he had to end up dead.

Kari Byron is ok. That's all that really matters.


Dude's lucky Bear Grylls wasn't around at the time. There wouldn't have even been a hostage situation in that case.
