Lee took hostages at the Discovery Channel's building this morning, threatening to kill them unless allowed to air his grievances (His manifesto is here.) on air as well as institute a program based upon Daniel Quinn's book "My Ishmael". It was his contention that the Discovery Channel stood in the way of saving the world which he believed required the reduction in numbers of "filthy humans". Becoming increasingly agitated, the order was given and a police sniper shot and killed Lee." Link to Original Source top
