Denver Police Computer used to send 'antichrist' message


www.denverpost.com

DENVER—Denver police want to find out who sent an e-mail from a department computer suggesting that a presidential candidate is the antichrist.
KUSA-TV received a copy of the e-mail from a police officer who objected to the use of department computers to send such messages.

Police Chief Gerry Whitman launched an investigation Monday.

The e-mail states that the "Anti-Christ (sic) will be a man, in his 40's, of Muslim descent." It does not mention a candidate's name.

"Have the American People completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason?" the e-mail says. "I'm sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the 'unknown' candidate."

Neither presidential candidate is a Muslim.

The e-mail also criticizes screeners at airports for not profiling travelers.

I thought it to be interesting that recently a federal investigation was launched against several Secret Service agents regarding their racist e-mails. Denver police are fairly notorious to begin with their shoot first mentality, but this shows another level of stupidity. Again, I find as the election comes closer and closer, more and more racists are showing their true colors.

there was also a mayor somewhere who forwarded the same mail


Fort Mill Mayor Danny Funderburk says he was “just curious” when he forwarded a chain e-mail suggesting Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama is the biblical antichrist. “I was just curious if there was any validity to it,” Funderburk said in a telephone interview. “I was trying to get documentation if there was any scripture to back it up.”

Funderburk apparently sent the e-mail from his business account at Gastonia Sheet Metal where he works as a business agent.

dont you read it then decide to forward it or not? maybe they hav strange e-mail in fort mill where you have to reply/forward mail before your allowed to read it ... -_-

I haven't heard about that...but along with the "Stomp the DNC" t-shirts every Denver cop received, "institutional" suddenly becomes bandied about. Of course, the email MAY be refering to John "What? Me a Muslim?" McCain. Sweet that topics here on ATS ie: Is Obama the AntiChrist? are getting circulated as fact by DPD.

Wow. Thanks for that information noobfun. It is simply amazing he said, "I was just forwarding it to see if there was any validation...any scriptures to back it up." Can anyone say, WACKO? The mere suggestion is simply outstanding idiocy. Where do they come from these people of my good old USA?

It's always seemed to me that the most logical answer is: The antichrist was written into the book in case of a very charismatic Muslim starting to get people to convert. It's a strategic move to keep Christianity on top. If the Muslim's words are appealing to Christians, all of a sudden they think 'oh my, this sounds quite nice, but this must be the anti christ, I have to walk away'.

How can a Muslim be mentioned in the Bible?Islam didn't even come about until centuries after it was supposedly written?

Can we get a knowledgeable Christian please? I'm guessing the person who created this e-mail, is obviously a Bible study drop out.

Goes to show just how much people are actually aware of, and those who just remember the bits they hear about.

Then i again i could be well wrong, but i doubt it.

BTW I myself am not either Christian or Muslim, I find organized religion baffling

the problem with that is it was written a long time before islam came into bieng

and there is no mention of 40 year old muslims in the bible

infact what is said in the bible could more closely match McCain and Palin then Obama

not direct word for word but basically

the beast of the land will be captured and will be acompanied by a scorcerer and will get people to pay more attention to (cant remeber if its the beast of the land or the sea)

beast of the land will be captured (prisoner/pow)
acompanied by a scorcerer (palin) whos main duty is to get people to pay attention to (McCain got a who lot more voteable when palin turned up, or so it seems on our side of the pond)

but its easier to point and go "black man must be the anti christ" ironic the strongest proponents of an inclusive loving religeon bieng the ones passing around a message of intolerance and segragation

Just an article I found from August 8th, 2008 about a group of biblical scholars from Colorado springs stating their theory about McCain being the Antichrist

www.commondreams.org...




"We believe that the End Times is near, based on the pattern of wars, earthquakes. and other strange phenomena we've been witnessing since the start of the New Millennium," said Jenkins. "Given that it may be imminent, the person who controls Babylon must be the Antichrist." Until 2003, many Christians believed that Saddam Hussein might be the Antichrist, since he started excavations to restore Babylon in the mid 1970s. But Hussein's death meant that the Antichrist is someone else. Since Obama wants to get out of Iraq, he can't be the Antichrist either, concluded Jenkins.

Revelations is a load of crap anyways. It was written by a people who wanted to make sure that if anyone ever brought the idea of major change away from their power structure, they would instantly be struck with fear at the "foretold Revelations" and would persecute such people(s) that chellenge the established order.

I do not believe this non-factual email of slander falls under official police business. I think it was probably like clerical staff or something.

What this basically proves is that police officers - and perhaps governors - are generally no smarter or less fallible than we (the general public) are.

I don't know how many times I've tried to convince everyone from my stepdaughter to my boss to check with SNOPES or scamwarners.com before forwarding emails, but to no avail.

Can people REALLY think it's bad luck not to forward an email? Or do they just not stop to think at all? .. the knee-jerk reaction is "ha ha that's kinda funny let's forward it to ALL CONTACTS ..???

I don't know, but the whole phenomenon of spam, scam, hoaxes, hoaxed virus scares, chain emails, and so forth has annoyed the heck out of me ever since my first encounter with the "Good Times" email back in the early 80's.

I wish someone would make an email program that pops up about 2 or 3 dialogue boxes that ask "Are you SURE you really want to do this?" every time you hit the FWD button.

the problem is the mail is basically completley wrong, but it has anti - islamic undertones

so police officers and mayors who have sworn to serve/protect the rights of ALL americans regardless of race creed or religeon doing completley the opposite it doesnt look good

yes they are just people and fallable, but they are in positions of authority and should display better judgement knowing they are in a position of authority and can/will be held acountable

I agree with you but there is always something nagging me when I hear these stories. One, I am older than the "computer" generation and I know, through office experiece, as ALL people who work in a NORMAL work environment know, that racist, obscene or pornographic email is cause for TERMINATION. It doesn't even need to be SAID.

Two, these types of things, although not uncommon, seem to happen, or be exposed anyway, quite often at government institutions. That to me is what is so unsettling. Teens who have not worked may not know institutional rules, but cops, secret service, and certainly the White House understand the rules regarding this conduct? Right?

Yeah, well, SHOULD is definitely the operative word in that sentence. They should, but often they don't. And most of the time they aren't held accountable, which is why they often don't display better judgment.

Understand the rules? I'm sure they do. But choose to OBEY the rules .. apparently some (or many?) of them don't. How many of us follow all the rules? Always stay under the speed limit? Never chat or check personal email at work? Besides, I think most of those people think they're ABOVE the rules and less likely to follow them than many of us. JMHO.

Darned Response Button Not Working: Response to Heike


Heike, again, your sentiment is understood and agreed with. I listed all of the above in your post because the Bush White House has been the most egregious abuser of email; isn't there something to the idea that it all starts at the top? Maybe these cops think, well, gee, if the White House can do it, why not me? Many people are just plain stupid. I do things constantly that I shouldn't; speed, cellphone dialogue in car, candy for the kid. Sending racist emails is not something that would ever cross my mind, not only for the embarrasment of the message itself, but because I know my work computer is GOING TO BE CHECKED. Man, sometimes you just have to say it; these guys sure take the cake.
