Census Worker Hanged - Fox News Strikes Again


AP - Source


WASHINGTON — 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. 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 the word on the chest of Bill Sparkman, a 51-year-old part-time Census field worker and teacher. He was found Sept. 12 in a remote patch of the Daniel Boone National Forest in rural southeast Kentucky.

The Census 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. Investigators have said little about the case. FBI spokesman David Beyer said the bureau is assisting state police and declined to confirm or discuss any details about the crime scene.

Bio on "Evil" Census Worker who was murdered


William E. Sparkman Jr. was a 51-year-old single father who once battled Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma while he pursued his teaching degree, according to a March 2008 article profiling the London, Kentucky man.

Sparkman worked two jobs while he earned his degree and was treated for cancer. Sparkman worked as substitute teacher and a census taker for the U.S. Census Bureau.

How do you blame this on Fox News? They dont even know who killed this guy, but you already know the motive? Are you psychic?

It's called common sense. The guy has FED carved into his chest. Why would anyone murder a census worker as a government agent? Where would anyone get the idea that a census worker is someone to hate and fear? Please give me another explanation besides a network with millions of viewers across the country tuning in to know who "threatens their way of life."

All we care about is why this man was killed - who was responsible and what could have possibly motivated them to commit such a horrendous crime. Media spin is not something harmless - it's called propaganda and its dangerous. It can drive people to do thing they would never have otherwise considered doing.

When you rant on a daily basis that the government is going to take away your gun, rob you, put you in a concentration camp, and destroy the United States someone is going to get killed.

Here are some other possible reasons.
1. Peope in rural Ky have a long history of taking issue with the Feds coming on their land.
2. Could have been somebody who doesnt own a tv but reads a lot of the ATS threads about census workers demanding to GPS your front door and decided to pop a cap in the guys ass.
3. Wouldnt you get a tad peeved if someone came to your house and demanded to GPS your house?

Well for starters, you cannot assume that he was murdered simply because he was a government employee. Diverting attention from the true motive is a method used since crime has existed.

Secondly, there are numerous reasons that he could have been killed. For instance, he came across a moonshine operation and the operator assumed that he would report it to the authorities. He came across a drug growing operation and same situation. He came across a drug manufacturing operation and same situation. He came across a human smuggling operation and same situation. He came across a crime in progress and same situation.

Or he came across a government operation and same situation.

Or this isn't what it is being said to be and was designed to make people leap to conclusions and target those who oppose large government and big brother.

You obviously aren't familiar with life outside of the city. Or life in the inner city for that matter. All government agents are suspect to some groups. And all witnesses are suspect to other groups. Plenty of reasons to kill, most of them are economically related. Drugs, moonshine, smuggling, doing 10-20 in the state pen. A whole lot of reasons.

Two sides of the same coin, my friend. Fox news may be exploiting this man but you kind of are as well since you have a spin on this as well Pot kettle black.

I don't have a problem with the census. As long as they do their constitutional job...which is an enumeration of the people. When they go past that then we have a problem.

Too many times a deed is done, then masked to implicate others.

Anybody remember the Manson murders?

An abortionist is murdered....blame FOX News
A Census worker is murdered....blame FOX News
A Pro-Life protester is murdered.....who do we blame? Oh wait we can't blame anyone because this story was never covered by the drive-by media.

A tad peeved? Yes.

Homicidal? Are you kidding me?

Face it, the right wing fear machine is in full swing, they are doing everything they can to turn people against the democratic government, and innocent people are suffering because of it.

This is a sad state of affairs where people in this country are justifying the murder of innocent people simply because they want to collect information for the census. It makes me consider getting the hell out of the US while I still can.

Common sense left the building. You are merely making assumptions and accusations.


The person who killed the census worker is the one to blame.

Nobody is trying to justify the murder. We all know that is wrong. What I take issue with is just jumping to some conclusion that it is the fault of Fox News or the right wingers, before they even know who murdered the poor guy or why.

You lefties are fear mongering just as much by trying to blame everything on Fox or the right without even 1 fact to back it up.

Let's just go ahead and blame the true culprit.......

Ron Paul....I heard he doesn't like the fed too much either.

Really


When you are in the shape the Democrat Party is in right now the last option is the blame game.

Mr. Obama has mastered this game.

From 1990 through 2000, the Daniel Boone National Forest, located in eastern Kentucky, has led all national forests for the number of cannabis plants eradicated. In 1999, 38 percent (184,000 plants) of all cannabis eradicated on national forest land was taken from the Daniel Boone National Forest.


US Dept. of Justice


The Daniel Boone National Forest has led all National Forests in marijuana cultivation for 10 of the last 11 years.

Maybe have something to do with all that.

You are using an innocent mans death to push your agenda.

Maybe you've got it backwards.

Maybe it was done to get people like you to do exactly what you are doing right now.

Who is justifying cold blooded murder?

What SOME of us are NOT doing is using a man's gruesome death to push an agenda.

The Manson plan was to make the murders look like they had been committed by Blacks against Whites, in order to start a race war, or Helter Skelter as Manson called it.

They were attempting their own false flags so to speak.
