James Lee ‘Filthy Human’ Discovery Gunman Shot, Apprehended
September 1, 2010
(ChattahBox)– James Ray Lee, 43, the hostage-taking gunman inside the Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Springs, MD has been shot and taken into custody. His condition is unknown, but the reported three hostages are safe and unharmed. When he was shot, bomb-like cylinders strapped to his body reportedly went off emitting smoke. The tense standoff with Lee, a man obsessed with the Discovery Channel, began at around 1 p.m. this afternoon when he strode into the lobby of the building waving a handgun. Lee left a bizarre manifesto of demands for the Discovery Channel on his website called Save the Planet Protest, saying “The Discovery Channel MUST broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet and to do the following IMMEDIATELY.” Some of his demands, included programming on overpopulation, which opposes the “birth of any more parasitic human infants.”
According to CNN’s report on Lee’s apprehension:
Three hostages were rescued from the headquarters of the Discovery Channel in Silver Spring, Maryland, Wednesday afternoon after police shot the man who was holding them, Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger told reporters Wednesday.
“The suspect is in custody,” he said. Manger said he had no information about the suspect’s condition.
A device being carried by the man emitted smoke after the man was shot, Manger said.
“The device appeared to go off,” he said. “We haven’t confirmed that as of this time. We saw some smoke, may have heard a pop.”
Most of the employees had left the building, but a few people were believed to have remained in their offices on the upper floors.
An email was issued to Discovery employees warning them of the gunman earlier this afternoon. The email, said the company has “reason to believe there is an armed gunman at One Discovery Place,” adding “all employees should seek protection in a locked office on their respective floors immediately.”
Lee has a history of protesting against the Discovery headquarters. He was arrested two-years ago for demonstrating at the building.
His online manifesto is straight from the mind of a madman. Lee is particularly incensed by the human race and demanded that the Discovery Channel devote programming to overpopulations issues, preferably in a “game show format.”
Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution. A game show format contest would be in order. Perhaps also forums of leading scientists who understand and agree with the Malthus-Darwin science and the problem of human overpopulation. Do both.
Lee also demanded that “All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions. In those programs’ places, programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility must be pushed. All former pro-birth programs must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it.”
Lee also objected to programs on war. “World War II had 2 Billion humans and after that war, the people decided that tripling the population would assure peace. WTF??? STUPIDITY! MORE HUMANS EQUALS MORE WAR!”
