Well - fortunately (for me), I did not mention "official story" in my questions to you. I'm just looking for someone to fill-in the blanks on
"how" this transpired apart from "external assistance", incorporating and accounting for each and all of the known facts. I am already aware of
the holes (that must be filled) for any of the conspiracy theories to work.
...Now who knows what DID actually happen here? Maybe there is something downright off about this whole thing and it comes down to the car
itself. Maybe THIS one had that 1:Million mechanical failure with involved the engine seemingly heading somewhere all it's own while the car crashed
and burned. It could end up being nothing more nefarious that CYA by a major corporation over a car built on a Friday afternoon at the plant. Oops in
capital letters and neon...
In which case - we're having to discount (with a capital DISCOUNT) the information we have on the email sent the previous afternoon (continuation of
the same day), and the call/tweet to the Wikileaks lawyer only three+ hours before... Or - give a huge offering to the gods of Coincidence... 'Cause
only they could have engineered such a set of circumstances.
...Or...he may have dropped something, took his eyes off the road for just a moment and in a high performance sports type car? Steering is
likely responsive at speed. A nudge with the knee without thinking while driving along a curb, for instance? ...
As I'm sure you're aware - this is a stretch. It might not be a stretch if happening for a couple of seconds...and/or even a couple of short
blocks...but to extend this to recognizing that he was probably travelling between 60 & 70 mph at Santa Monica Blvd., and had increased to
(presumably) 100+ mph by Melrose Place...suggests that either something else had his attention (like induced coma
), something/someone else had
control of the car, or, he was intent on suicide.
... Ouch.... It looks REAL ugly when it happens on the interstate and I've personally seen more of those over a trucking career than I care to
think about. Just inattention for a moment and a fleeting instance of carelessness.
I drove over-the-road for a while, as well. Didn't mind the driving - hated the multiple sets of rules. Saw a lot of ugly stuff...and a lot of
beauty. California is one of the most mixed-up places on earth (I think)... So much to see - So much beauty...and So much...ugly. (Texas is like
...However...in the absence of anything remotely tangible to suggest foul play? I'll wait to see what the official story actually is before
saying it's wrong or a cover up. I'd expect it'll be along right after that investigation they're in the middle on now.
IMO - the only way the theories that suggest this was not foul play, might be explained, are as follows:
(Welcome constructive criticism to these suggestions)
His career hit a high with General Mc-whats'isname... He's followed one dead-end trail after another, since...even taking on the role of heading-up
the new Los Angeles office for the publication he writes for...but, each new lead turns into nothing. He's mortgaged and credited up the knozzle.
...about to lose face big time.
Has an insurance policy that will take care of his debts...give his wife (and child?) enough to get rolling again...and that doubles in case of
Further insures his wife/family, by sending emails that he's onto the BIGGEST story of his life (which must be something, if the last BIG story
turned the war in Afghanistan & the White House on their ears), and must "submerge" for a while... One last insurance policy - a tweet/call to the
Wikileaks lawyer...and...booze it up...drug it up...until he's virtually numb...and speed south on North Highlands Avenue...increasing speed
constantly as he goes...through 7 to 10 intersections...each of which might cause the death of others as well... And, when all of the intersections
that would probably do the trick are past...and he's lost control from the two crosswalks (and rise) at Melrose Place...just take it into a tree.
That accounts for the email, the Wikileaks lawyer...and his recklessness for quite a stretch of high-risk road.
It does not account for the possibility that the airbags will provide ample buffer... And...there's no way (unless he rigged it, himself) that he
could count on an explosion that would engulf the car and himself in such an out-of-control blaze.
But - that's the nearest I can get with "nobody did it to him - he did it to himself".
