Man Holding Hostages at Discovery Building: Against TLC's Promotion of "Overpopulation"Mara Siegler
Update 2: The hostages are safe and out of the building.
Update: The gunman has been shot, according to MSNBC. It is unknown whether he is dead or alive.
Original: Lunatic James Lee is currently holding people hostage at the Discovery Communications building in Maryland. Police have established contact and believe the man has explosives strapped to his chest.
He is a known environmentalist and has held protests against the channel before. Discovery Channel includes several networks, one of which is TLC whose programs include 19 and Counting, Kate Plus 8, Quints by Surprise and will be airing a new show in September called Sextuplets Take New York. The gunman’s major problem-These shows promote overpopulation!
On his website SaveThePlanetProtest.com he has written a manifesto against the company, urging them to expose civilization “for the filth it is” and to puts its focus on “how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution.”
He adds, “Humans are the most destructive, filthy, pollutive creatures around and are wrecking what’s left of the planet with their false morals and breeding culture. For every human born, ACRES of wildlife forests must be turned into farmland in order to feed that new addition over the course of 60 to 100 YEARS of that new human’s lifespan! THIS IS AT THE EXPENSE OF THE FOREST CREATURES!!!! All human procreation and farming must cease! It is the responsibility of everyone to preserve the planet they live on by not breeding any more children who will continue their filthy practices. Children represent FUTURE catastrophic pollution whereas their parents are current pollution. NO MORE BABIES! Population growth is a real crisis. Even one child born in the US will use 30 to a thousand times more resources than a Third World child. It’s like a couple are having 30 babies even though it’s just one! If the US goes in this direction maybe other countries will too!”
Hopefully, everyone inside the building will be ok.
