Topic - James L. Lee
The hostage situation at the Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Spring, Md., ended Wednesday with police taking the life of the apparent gunman, James L. Lee. This unhinged individual, inspired by the ideas of environmental extremists, believed that by terrorizing employees at the television network he would spark a change that would ultimately "save the planet." His problem was that he took far-left principles a bit too seriously.
An apparent eco-terrorist stormed Discovery Channel network's headquarters Wednesday afternoon, taking three hostages at gunpoint and sparking a nationally televised standoff that ended when police fatally shot him several hours later.
"All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions," Lee explained in the manifesto posted on his website, savetheplanetprotest.com.
At the trial for the disorderly conduct charge, the Gazette of Montgomery County reported, Lee said he began working to save the planet after being laid off from his job in San Diego.
