AssociatedContent/Yahoo ^ | Oct. 8th, 2010 | Sherry Tomfeld

Posted on 10/08/2010 7:32:37 AM PDT by stillafreemind

Dubbed the honeybee gunman by the media, the above sketch is for a suspect in the shootings of at least 3 rural Illinois/Indiana people, 1 fatally. The following is from the Lake County Indiana sheriff's department:

BE ON THE LOOK OUT: Male/White 30-40 years old, app. 5'8'', 200 - 220 lbs, short brown hair with a 5 o'clock shadow. The suspect was last seen wearing a light green windbreaker, light colored jeans, and a ball cap. Suspect is considered armed and dangerous. DO NOT attempt to apprehend this individual but rather contact your local police department by dialing 911.

Apparently he’s been asking questions about plywood and honeybees; two subjects that are actually linked to GM corn and crops.

Sounds like the LEOs suspect that he’s targeting people for their role in growing GM crops. Apparently GM crops are being targeted for their potential role in the decline of the honeybee population.

From the article: He is has also been described as mentally unbalanced.

Gee, wonder how they figured that out?

I live down in Tippecanoe County. This story is very disturbing. Looking at the map of the area, it would appear that the suspect traveled on local roads to get from Will County to Lowell Indiana. He did not jump on Interstate 80. He may still be in that area.

I know the schools in Lake County were closed earlier this week, for safety reasons. Anyone know if this is still the case?

That’s kind of what I thought. I heard this on the news too and when they said that I thought most people who go on a shooting spree are mentally unbalanced. Maybe they mean mentally ill or something.

I read both the links at the bottom of this article. I did read about the schools being closed. I do not know if this has changed. One article was talking about businesses locking their doors and looking at people through the door before they would let them in. They also said most people are just staying away.

I think it was the link to the sheriff’s office that had him saying lock your doors and if you have a gun, defend yourself.(just an approximation of what he said).

Scary for sure. And ya know, most rural folks know each other. If they don’t know the person, they certainly know vehicles. Makes me wonder where this guy came from.

I think you did but you are too unbalanced to know it.

That is why you didn’t post that denial and I didn’t just reply to it.

You need help...

What the honeybee and plywood/wood shavings questions had to do with the shootings is unclear.

So why the heck are they calling him the Honneybee Gunman?

BTW, the author obviously skipped class in 4th grade when the teacher explained not to begin a sentence with a number.

I see now why this article is so juvenile.

Eric?

A one... two— A one... two... three... four...
Half a bee, philosophically,
Must, ipso facto, half not be.
But half the bee has got to be
Vis a vis, its entity. D’you see?

But can a bee be said to be
Or not to be an entire bee
When half the bee is not a bee
Due to some ancient injury?

Singing...

La dee dee, one two three,
Eric the half a bee.
A B C D E F G,
Eric the half a bee.

Is this wretched demi-bee,
Half-asleep upon my knee,
Some freak from a menagerie?
No! It’s Eric the half a bee!

Fiddle de dum, Fiddle de dee,
Eric the half a bee.
Ho ho ho, tee hee hee,
Eric the half a bee.

I love this hive, employee-ee,
Bisected accidentally,
One summer afternoon by me,
I love him carnally.

He loves him carnally,
Semi-carnally.
The end.

Cyril Connelly?
No; semi-carnally!
Oh.

Cyril Connelly.
