"When he got out to his car, he wasn't programmed no more," Unruh says. "It sounded kind of crazy. He was trying to run it by me,
Did you realize that S. Unruh is not the only inmate that has had an encounter with James Holmes and wanted to talk to 'the press' about it?
"Marie" happened to be incarcerated at the same time as Holmes just like Unruh...
Former inmate: Holmes flaunts sanity,
gets special treatment in jail
It's hard to know what to make out of that video. The media were willing to send out a van based on the two facts that they knew for sure, "They
have both men and women at the facility" and "We know for sure she was kept there at the same time as holmes.
So what? I chalk it up to the local news (Fox31 Denver) grabbing at anything at all that they can to add to the 'story'.
And so now what about Unruh? The DA wouldn't 'work' with him so he decided to take it to the press. I am trying to imagine how that might have
gone. Did he dig in to his stipend of phone calls, or something, and phone up Westword Denver?
And I am not surprised at all that someone of Unruh's age and obvious guile could choose just the right words to say to kick up a # storm,
"They're going to try to discredit my story" and "Programmed Killer".
You guys realize that all that stuff is mainstream? This is not 1991. Everybody knows what a Manchurian Candidate is. I think they had a Manchurian
Candidate Slurpee at 7-11. And the Westword jumped on the chance at the story, why?: because Unruh was there
. Nevermind that his drug addled
brain was there with him.
Anyhow, Unruh is a total opportunist, his story could easily be cobbled together just from watching commercials on cable and news breaks. And the idea
of these two shouting to one another, apparently unheard by others, by dint of some weird act of acoustics created by sliding metal cell doors, "The
children, Steven! Write to the chilllldren for me!" Silliness people, c'mon.
Thanks, Steven Unruh, good story bro.
And as far programmed killers go?
The way I see it, any programming that took place took place at the hands of James Holmes and no one else.
If you don't get me on that then maybe you should revisit Tyler Durden's speech in Fight Club. Many people tell themselves that they are all sorts
of things and then go about fulfilling that program. For instance, many have read books like those by Carlos Castenada and then went out and ingested
lots of drugs and experimented at being a 'shaman' or whatever. It's an artifact of culture and has much kinship, I think, with behaviors like
Yeah, we are capable of that all on our own. Garbage in. Garbage out.
And what is more bizarre anyway, really? That there is some faction of the government that does this to people? or that people are capable of this all
on their own? I choose the latter. It's not 'Them' it's Us. We do this all on our own. We create the stories that get us in to it, just like we
create the stories that we use to try and explain it to ourselves.
