James Jay Lee

A man with an explosive device strapped to his person has taken over the Discovery Channel headquarters outside D.C. Policed have IDed him as James Jay Lee, who has organized crazy protests against the Discovery Channel in the past. UPDATE: Lee was shot and killed by police--all hostages were safely removed.

Here is Lee at a 2008 protest:

And below is a video of Lee throwing wads of cash at people (in protest, presumably):

Demands from Lee's manifesto include:

1. The Discovery Channel and its affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinns My Ishmael pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each others inventive ideas. Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution. A game show format contest would be in order.

2. All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions.

3. All programs promoting War and the technology behind those must cease. There is no sense in advertising weapons of mass-destruction anymore. Instead, talk about ways to disassemble civilization and concentrate the message in finding SOLUTIONS to solving global military mechanized conflict.

10. Stop all shows glorifying human birthing on all your channels and on TLC. Stop Future Weapons shows or replace the dialogue condemning the people behind these developments so that the shows become exposes rather than advertisements of Arms sales and development!

11. Youre also going to find solutions for unemployment and housing. All these unemployed people makes me think the US is headed toward more war.

"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."

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."

The whole manifesto is here (the site is predictably overloaded at the moment).

Below is a look at James Lee's MySpace page:

Here is a live video feed of the situation:

This is the building in happier times:
