    Census worker hanged, "FED" written on his chest

    AP source: Hanged Census worker had 'fed' on chest - Yahoo! News

    MANCHESTER, Ky. A U.S. Census worker found hanged from a tree near a Kentucky cemetery had the word "fed" scrawled on his chest, a law enforcement official said Wednesday, and the FBI is investigating whether he was a victim of anti-government sentiment.

    Bill Sparkman, a 51-year-old part-time Census field worker and teacher, was found Sept. 12 in a remote patch of the Daniel Boone National Forest in rural southeast Kentucky. The law enforcement official, who was not authorized to discuss the case and requested anonymity, did not say what type of instrument was used to write "fed" on his chest.

    The Census Bureau has suspended door-to-door interviews in rural Clay County, where the body was found, pending the outcome of the investigation. An autopsy report is pending.

    Sounds nuts. I hope it's not what it sounds like, otherwise we all get to enjoy another two weeks of idiots screaming at each other over how the actions of one crazy prove that their political ideology is superior.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    This type of thing does wonders to legitimize anti-government sentiment...

    It could be someone with a personal vendetta who tried to divert suspicion by scrawling 'Fed'.

    This was an attack on a federal worker...i hope this isn't what it looks like.

    Tim McVeigh attacked federal workers.

    I can sense the partisan hackery coming a mile away. I hope I'm wrong.

    Or maybe it was just an unfortunate tatoo he's had since he was 20?

    Or maybe a guy walked by, saw him hanging there, and wrote it?

    Not sure I believe the story to begin with.

    That's definitely a possibility. If it was a political activist, it wouldn't make much sense to leave the body all the way out in a national park where it might not be found. That would risk no one seeing the message.

    Re: Census worker hanged, "FED" written on his chest

    Kelsee Brown, a waitress at Huddle House, a 24-hour chain restaurant, when asked about the hanging, said she thinks the government sometimes has the wrong priorities.

    "Sometimes I think the government should stick their nose out of people's business and stick their nose in their business at the same time. They care too much about the wrong things," she said.
    This is not a partisan thing, this is a heritage thing. There are people back in the hills of Kentucky that have anti-government views that span generations and go back hundreds of years.

    But. yeah its gonna turn partisan.
