Man holds hostages at Discovery TV building

I'm having a hard time c/p-ing the story, but it's located here:

Man holds hostages at Discovery TV building - U.S. news - Crime & courts - msnbc.com

Pretty much a man is currently holding either one or two people hostage at the Discovery TV building in Maryland and is demanding that they air more programming warning people about the dangers of humans and has previously stated online that “I want Discovery Communications to broadcast on their channels to the world their new program lineup and I want proof they are doing so. I want the new shows started by asking the public for inventive solution ideas to save the planet and the remaining wildlife on it,” the alleged manifesto reads, adding:" Nothing is more important than saving ... the Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels. The humans? The planet does not need humans.”

This is on-going, and I'm really hoping everything turns out OK, just wanted to share with everyone.

Law enforcement identified the suspect as James Lee, 43, from Washington, D.C., who has for at least two years called for protests against the company and who was arrested and found guilty of disorderly conduct for a protest outside of Discovery's headquarters in 2008.
Lee has posted a rambling manifesto on a website in which he rails against "disgusting human babies," "parasitic infants," and says people should "disassemble civilization."

Sigh. There's weirdos and wackos on many sides of the spectrum.

I keep reading, or hearing this was an ASIAN man.


He is from Washington D C. Does not that make him an AMERICAN man?

He was wearing jeans and a baseball cap. Not a kimono.
Were his demands in an ASIAN language?

I'm not Asian, but as far as I can tell, the man believes that the Discovery Channel has the power to end poverty, war, famine and the job crisis.

All former pro-birth programs must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it. <--- I wonder how that would affect "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant."

Lee, who represented himself in Silver Spring's district court, was evaluated by state psychiatrists, but Lee said, ''They couldn't find anything wrong with me.
Did they overlook something? Because I could see lawsuits flying around over this decision.
