“The (Charleston) church shooting was the tipping point…but my anger has been building steadily…I’ve been a human powder keg for a while…just waiting to go BOOM!!!!” ABC News is playing peek-a-boo with Vester Lee Flanagan’s (AKA Bryce Williams’) Unabomber-esque manifesto he sent them before tracking down and murdering Alison Parker and Adam Ward in front of two cameras this morning. According to this ABC post, Flanagan/Williams fingers Dylann Roof as the spark that touched off this pathetic explosion, but anyone claiming to admire the work of Eric Harris, Dylann Klebold and Seung–Hui Cho wasn’t running on a full tank to begin with . . .
In an often rambling letter to the authorities, and family and friends, he writes of a long list of grievances. In one part of the document, Williams calls it a “Suicide Note for Friends and Family.”
- He says has suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work
- He says he has been attacked by black men and white females
- He talks about how he was attacked for being a gay, black man
“Yes, it will sound like I am angry…I am. And I have every right to be. But when I leave this Earth, the only emotion I want to feel is peace….”
How’s this for a feeling of peace?
“As for Dylann Roof? You (deleted)! You want a race war (deleted)? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE …(deleted)!!!”
ABC and police are reportedly trying to authenticate the screed, but the complaints jibe with those he posted to his Twitter account and comments made by station employees regarding the now dead “disgruntled” employee. But as in all of these cases, the information will be released. Let’s see it sooner rather than later and look the psychosis directly in the eye and see Flanagan/Williams for the sick specimen he was.
