Death Video

We all know about Wall Street Journal Reporter Daniel Pearl being kidnapped and brutally murdered in Pakistan. And we all heard about how the killers videotaped his death. One minute he was talking like he was being interviewed and the next someone had slashed his throat. All while being videotaped. The tape was sent to a Pakistani journalist and it eventually found its way to the U.S. State Dept. Which leads me to believe there are multiple copies of this tape. I hope none of the copies will find their way into the wrong hands. I’m specifically speaking of people who trade these kinds of videos underground.

We’ve all either heard about or seen snuff videos where a film is shown of actual people dying actual deaths. And there are various websites that also show mpegs of people being brutally killed or maimed. Without delving into the subject of who gets off on this sick shit, I hope for the sake of everyone the Daniel Pearl video never sees the light of day. He had a wife and an unborn child who will never know her father. I’d hate to think if she grew up and accidentally stumbled upon his death video somewhere.

Back in the 80’s a man who I believe was a Pennsylvania senator by the name of Budd Dwyer called a press conference to talk about being indicted. In the middle of the press conference broadcast live on local TV he took out a pistol, stuck it in his mouth, and pulled the trigger. I happened to be home from school and watching at the time. I was horrified and never wanted to see anything like that ever again. But Budd Dwyer made himself into somewhat of a celebrity that day because since the tape was only shown once on TV it is very rare to get a copy of it but it is out there. There are even some sites that carry the video from the Columbine High surveillance video.

Luckily not all famous deaths make it to light. When Brandon Lee was accidentally killed during the filming of the movie The Crow, the film containing his death was destroyed.

My point is this. Videos involving anyone’s death just for the sake of shock viewing should be banned. I’m all for freedom of speech but there is no intrinsic value to any of these tapes. Every one of those people whose death you may see on tape had a mother, or husband, or child that really cared for them and they have to relive it every time one of those videos are shown. They need to be banned and banned now. There needs to be some kind of law not unlike the Son of Sam law which states convicted felons can not profit from their illegal activities through books and movies, etc. The needs to be a law which states no one can profit through the exploitation of someone’s death on video or film or any other viewed medium.

More on the Va. “ritual” killing.

Ok remember when I wrote a 12/15/01 post about a murder that occurred in Virginia and the media labeled it a ritual killing. Well I was right and wrong.

About a month after I wrote that I got a signing in one of my many guestbooks. And it went a little something like this.

My only interest at that time was chastising the media for calling this a ritual killing based on the evidence the authorities claim. But if you have a different perspective on what happened I’d be very interested to hear it.

So I got this e-mail in return….

Hello,

I understand your intentions with the media. And just had to set the record straight to all that read it. The media & cops, they have not a clue to what really went on. As far as this case and what happened…..In the best interest of my friend, I’d rather not say what did happen and why. That is not my story to tell and it is in court now. I’m sure you understand. I will however share some things about Kyle that could give you some insite on him. >>

Kyle had been on medication for some time and was removed from it cold turkey. Remember the two kids that shot up that school? One was fresh off his medication. This was a order from Kyle’s social worker. I and everyone around him saw the changes. The chemical change of stopping cold turkey on those medications is something I feel many do not know or understand. Such medications are to be lowered little by little from what i understand. The system which failed again, seen him only as a number or case. With no real intrest in his true well being. If you wish to write him, I have the address. But ask that you stray from questions about the case until court is finished. Let me know. Ill give it to you if you wish. He asked me to put his address in his auto mail reply. Which I have not yet done. So he welcomes mail.

I sent him another e-mail asking if he could comment on the alleged two accomplices claiming that the murder was orchestrated from the beginning . He sent me an e-mail back saying he couldn’t due to the fact that the trial hasn’t even begun yet. But he did answer me back a few days later. In an e-mail Majik had said…

After I talked to the thre of them and there lawyer. It is publicly documented that The investagator said Mike Pfohl & Cathy Inglis “were involved in the planning, execution, escape, and cover-up of what was described as a planned assassination,” Even according to court records. They didnt say nothing of the matter themselves.

Due to my own laziness I waited on doing this post. It’s a good thing I did because a few days later he sent me this article that sheds a whole new light on the situation. According to the article the daughter of the victim was arrested in connection to the homicide. Now remember this is just my opinion based on what I’ve read so far but it appears that the daughter of the victim convinced Kyle Hulbert that her father was beating her and persuaded him to kill her father. The beating accusations have yet to be substantiated and her motive at this time is unclear.

So lets review. According to Majik, Kyle Hulbert was taken off his medication by a social worker. Not a doctor, a social worker. And we all know how reliable social workers are. They leave kids in abusive homes and take them out of homes where nothing is wrong. In my opinion it seems like this killing could have been prevented. And take it from someone who is on an antidepressants, you can’t stop cold turkey. It just doesn’t work. Ok, I was a little wrong. This wasn’t a robbery gone bad. I’ll admit my own mistakes. Unlike, the media. So quick to call this a ritual killing without learning all the facts. Typical.

So because of this one girl, at least five lives were ruined, probably more. And the media was so quick to judge someone who was “different”.
