Once again, mass murderers run amock in America. As always, everyone runs wild seeking solutions and safety and as always, we refuse to look in the mirror and see ourselves as we really are: a blood-soaked nation that spreads death and destruction and whose favorite entertainments are bloody as hell.
When Charles Schmid, 23, started killing high school girls in Tucson, Arizona, in 1964, he got two people to go along with him. Self-conscious about his short stature, he strutted around in boots stuffed with newspapers and tin cans. He also wore make-up and tried to look like Elvis Presley. People viewed him as an eccentric character, but girls were easily enamored of him.
On the night of May 15, he persuaded John Saunders and Mary Rae French to go with him while he raped and killed Alleen Rowe in the desert. He buried her there in the sand and even bragged about it afterward, but no one reported it.
The following summer, Schmid strangled two girls and buried them out in the desert as well. Having gotten away with it once, he figured he was immune, so he took his buddy Richard Bruns out to see what he had done. This was Schmid's way of getting compliance while bragging about what he'd done. If someone saw the body and did nothing about it, he was part of the team.
This happened at my high school, Palo Verde High. I was in school back then and only knew the victims very slightly. They were buried in the desert to the east of our school's front doors. It was a huge, huge story and this fact should sober people since today, killing students doesn't get much attention at all unless there is more than 10 bodies.
Life Magazine came to our school to find out why our school attracted this unusual, at this time, serial killer. This was right after our President was murdered in Texas and his VP took over and instantly ran us right into Vietnam which was just beginning to heat up. Tucson is a military base and the Vietnam war hit home fast, one of my girlfriend's dad was a Green Beret and was the first Arizonan to die in Vietnam that very same year.
Life Magazine did a huge story about how crummy Tucson was and how this would naturally produce mass murderers. Of course, the Air Force had lots of mass murder equipment taking off and flying to Asia to do mass murder but that was patriotism and fighting the evils of communism. Murder is OK if it is recalitrant peasants, of course.
But to explain this killing spree, Life Magazine decided it was us teens drag racing on Speedway Blvd. I was only 14 years old and two years away from my own speed racing career on that infamous street but the whole nation was agast at how nasty it was to drag race in Tucson which caused a flood of drag racers from California and Texas to pour in to test us out and we had many a merry night afterwards. I had an older brother doing this and I could hitch a ride with someone and take part as a passenger.
By the time I was 16, I got to do it myself. As far as I can tell, drag racing on Speedway didn't spawn more mass murders. These did continue and rise, always in a new place. The minute the media would tag, say, LA as the mass murder capital, it would happen in San Francisco, then Chicago, then New York City, etc.
Rural America then the city then suburbs then mountains, plains, lakes, forests, deserts, etc. As mass murderers and serial killers and rapists sprang up here and there and everywhere, the media would desperately try to find the cause for this eruption of sexual/murderous rage and not once did they consider themselves as the cause.
Charles Manson’s grandiose scheme for achieving ultimate power through Helter Skelter achieved nothing but the vicious, brutal stabbing deaths of seven innocent people, giving him the reputation of being one of America’s most heinous mass murderers. When the California Supreme Court overturned the death penalty a year later, the five murderers’ sentences were reduced to life in prison. This made them eligible for parole, though the horrendous nature of their crimes has prevented that. Manson was turned down for the tenth time in 2002.
In his afterword which culminates the 25th Anniversary Edition of Helter Skelter, Bugliosi notes that carnage by demented killers hardly shocks the public any longer. He adds: "But fortunately, as of this date, the singularity of Manson’s evil and the particular brand of demonic murders he authored have not again been inflicted upon our nation. We can only hope that the ensuing years will be the same."
This is too sad: many a satanic ritualist has committed mass murder and serial murders since then. Indeed, like the ruling elites, they know that if they call upon the Devil that is Death that the Skull and Bones worship at Yale, It will order them to kill, rape and destroy. Many a madman playing various satanic ritualist games has followed this path. They love it. It is very popular with Hollywood and the media. Mixing murder with religion is very potent and most people egging themselves into becoming criminals are very attracted to satanistic practices which is why our own rulers are addicted to this.
And there it is: they love satanic murders and they launch many wars whereby they get to kill women and children and this pleases them, they like to make us imagine this is 'patriotism'.
The Zodiac Killer was a serial killer who operated in Northern California for ten months in the late 1960s. He coined his name in a series of taunting letters he sent to the press until 1974. His letters included four cryptograms or ciphers, three of which have yet to be solved.
The Zodiac murdered five known victims in Benicia, Vallejo, Lake Berryessa, and San Francisco between December 1968 and October 1969. Four men and three women between the ages of 16 and 29 were targeted. Others have been inconclusively proposed to be Zodiac victims as well.
The killer's identity remains unknown. The San Francisco Police Department marked its investigation "inactive" in April 2004 and reopened it some time before March 2007. The case remains open in other jurisdictions as well.
The people of the USA have increased spending on 'Homeland Security' to the point that America is more like the Soviet Union than the USA. This hasn't made us much safer simply because anyone who wants can go forth and murder masses of people all too easily. Our culture eggs unstable people into doing this by feeding us nonstop murder, sexual violence and survival of the fittest garbage. This permeates our brains and our culture. Just watching the ads for TV shows can be sickening. Yet supposedly 'normal' people not only watch this junk, they dream it at night for TV imprints itself upon the visual parts of the brain and then the brain toys with this at night, this is the 'Id' part Freud talked about but we are supposed to ignore today.
These sleeping dreams disturb our waking hours and unstable minds can break and the person can replay their dreams in waking life. In this most recent case, very much the Schwarzenegger nightmares: the silent, brutal semi-robotic killing machine.
The Branch Davidians are a religious sect who originated from a schism in 1955 from the Davidian Seventh Day Adventists, themselves former members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church who were excommunicated during the 1930s. From its inception in the 1930s, the Shepherd's Rod inherited Adventism's apocalypticism, in that they believed themselves to be living in a time when Christian prophecies of a final divine judgment were coming to pass. They are best known for the 1993 siege of their Center near Waco, Texas, by the ATF and the FBI, which resulted in the deaths of eighty-two of the church's members, including head figure David Koresh. However, by the time of the siege, Koresh had encouraged his followers to think of themselves as "students of the Seven Seals" rather than as "Branch Davidians," and other Branch Davidian factions never accepted his leadership.
The USA forces surrounding the Davidian armed encampment played satanic chants, heavy metal satanic music and the screams of rabbits being tortured. They claimed this was to weaken the will of the Davidians and get them to surrender. This satanic stuff is being done this very day to victims within the American gulag system. Sexual torture and satanic games are played out with our captives in Iraq and Afghanistan and this is fueling their hatred towards us and we now have to pretend to be pious and good.
So why is this happening? The outpouring of grief and fear is stupid since the USA sits down at dinner and studiously ignores Iraq's carnage. The deaths here would barely make the news here if it happened in Iraq!
This was true when this whole mass murderers/serial killers stuff began to take off. The TV watchers here loved this news and greedily drank up the dregs of whatever information they could. Meanwhile, a good way to get killed was to join an anti-war demonstration or flash a peace sign! Many times when I was passing out leaflets about the war, people would rush up to me and threaten to kill me. The cops did this too. Indeed, people really did try to kill me!
The hatred poured over hippies trying to spread peace and love was hilarious considering how the wells of hate and murder were just beginning to overflow. Martin Luther King patiently suffered all the slings and arrows the government and hysterical racists flung at him and not once did he get violent or cease being antiwar but then they murdered him!
And so it goes: today, the NRA and other lunatic organizations are claiming, if students only had arms, they could have done an OK Corral and had a shoot-out! Whoopee. And the cops show up, see guns blazing and kill EVERYONE. Right!
I happen to be a gun user and owner. And the last thing I want is guns in classrooms, hospitals, malls and other places. For obvious reasons. If things are out of control, this is due to lack of policing, not lack of firearms. Homeland Security wastes many billions of dollars spying on Americans and they can't stop any of these mass murder events. And it should be obvious that guns kill far many more Americans than Arab terrorists.
Not that we will do anything sane after this episode. Next: IED's all over the place. Whoopee. We can be just like Iraq.
