Discovery Channel gunman takes three hostages, shot dead by police

Pin it

James Lee, a civilian with a history of crazed protesting outside of the Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, stormed the building yesterday afternoon. He took three hostages and spent four hours in a standoff with the police until authorities shot and killed him.

He reportedly had explosives strapped to his body and in a backpack with him. NBC News, who would never be so low as to trumpet their own exclusive phone interview with Lee, reports "Asked how he had learned to make a bomb, the man said that he knew how to weld and read widely but that he also picked up pointers from the TV show “Mythbusters.”"

Lee is also supposedly wrote this online manifesto, which demonstrates his clear incapacity for reason and grounded thinking, while demonstrating his ability to make simple web pages and probably bombs, too.

Taken from his list of demands:

2. 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.
