As reported in the New York Times September 2, 2010 edition:
“Police officers shot and killed a gunman with a history of protesting against the Discovery Channel, the authorities said, ending a nearly four-hour ordeal on Wednesday at the company’s headquarters in Silver Spring, Md. The gunman, apparently wearing explosives, had taken two employees and a security guard hostage, officials said.”
Mr. James J. Lee was killed by police who feared for the safety of his four hostages, employees of Discovery Communications..
What, you ask, does this have to do with pfpfp.org? More from the Times article:
“Sometime in August, the Web site called for Discovery to show programs about how to save the planet by decreasing the human population. Specifically, it said that the TLC and Discovery Health channels should discontinue shows about ‘the birth of any more parasitic human infants,’ and ‘in those programs’ places, programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility must be pushed.'”
OK, so he was a little over the top. Well, a whole bunch over the top. At least his spirit was in the right place. But we can’t advocate his haste in implementing pfpfp’s programs.
