    Do you think it means anything that a couple weeks have passed and there's no more info or leads in the news? I hope they do find out what happened. This is a disturbing crime.

    I have a strong feeling that neither side wants this to be an issue what so ever. Nobody wants something like this to take take the air out of the Health Care debate or any other issue. You have to admit that giving all of the caustic rehetoric that has been flung around. This could be a volatile situation.

    Uh....not if that is exactly what they want. Attention.

    But why some worthless, piss-ant census worker? If they were really trying to send a message why would they pick that guy!?

    And if they're really after attention, how do they figure Americans will make the link between the murder and their movement? I just doesn't make any sense.

    The guy probably stumbled upon some drug producers who didn't want him exposing or compromising their operation. Rabid anti-government sentiment in certain parts of Appalachia has predated the existence of any tea-parties or conservative marches on Washington. Occam’s razor points to this.

    Geezz...THE GUY was neither worthless nor a pissant. You asked me earlier about what is hyperpartisain about your posts...well that is a perfect example. The word FED was written on his chest and he was killed on 9-11 and found on 9-12. The chances are just as likely that he was murdered by a right wing political hit squad.

    As GD said, the guy wasn't a pissant, and he wasn't worthless. And given the facts known, Occam's razor points to a political motivation, not a drug motivation.

    If I had to guess, if the motive ends up being political, he was chosen because he was convenient. He was some one who was there.

    Of course, your theory of drug producers doing it is quite possible too. That is the problem with running ahead of the facts. We will hopefully know soon enough, and I hope whoever did it is tried, convicted and sentenced to the max.

    I posted the comment below, which is innocent enough,
    but then on reflection I felt the need to stress (who
    knows who will see this and when,) that we are talking
    about a practice that frequently results in death. And
    it does so in a manner that causes horrific suffering to
    the survivors of the victim who must deal with revelations
    that arrise from the nature of the death, and the
    condition of the body.

    It is not something that anyone should be too curious about.


    Thanks


    He was reportedly found not hanged in the classic sense, but in contact with the ground, naked except for his socks.

    According to a supposed witness, he was also bound with duck tape, including what sounds like a mock dog collar.

    Practitioners of the practice that killed David Carradine often tie themselves up in one fashion or another. (There are photos available on the web -- you probably do not want to see them, since they are almost always taken after death.)

    It all sounds like a case of AE strangulation to me, at least on the surface.

    Hanging feds leaves behind too much evidence. I better stock up on fava beans and Chianti [2] for 2010.

    Not necessarily, no. I think that given the nature of the crime, they aren't going to share details until they feel they have a handle on them.
