Did you guys follow the news from yesterday's scary hostage situation at the Discovery Communications headquarters in Silver Springs, Maryland?We're learning more about the gunman--a radical environmentalist who claims that Discovery and TLC are proselytizing overpopulation with shows about multiple births.Let's discuss this frightening situation ...
The gunman, James Jay Lee, whostormed the Discovery Communications headquarterson Wednesday, taking hostages, did so reportedly in effort to demand that the company stop airing shows on multiple births.He was shot and killed by police.All hostages are safe.
In a manifesto published on his Web site, Lee reportedly wrote: "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."
How sad and scary is this?No matter how you feel about a.) multiple births, or b.) the environment, I think we can all agree that resorting to terrorist actions to make a point is so very sad and wrong.
