"Shape-Shifters" Invade New Mexico!

Cedar Crest man jailed for attacks on 'shape shifters'

Last Update: 11/07/2002 13:18:09

Police say a man killed and burned two animals and kidnapped and assaulted a woman because he thought they were "shape shifters."

Christopher Campbell, 42, is charged with extreme animal cruelty resulting in death, false imprisonment and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Deputies initially tried to contact Campbell after a woman reported she had been smoking crack cocaine with Campbell and he "freaked out," locking her in a laundry room and firing a weapon through a window at her on October 30.

The woman told authorities she escaped through a window and called for help from a neighbor's house. Deputies could not locate Campbell on October 30.

On November 6, Campbell's parents contacted sheriff's deputies and requested a welfare check on him because he had mental and drug problems.

At Campbell's Cedar Crest home, deputies found the front and back porches were covered with honey and jam and the doorknobs were covered in butter, found the internal organs and fur of a small animal in the garage, and discovered the burnt remains of two domestic cats.

Deputies found Campbell naked in a closet in his home.

When questioned about the cats, Campbell said he could tell they were "shape shifters" and not cats by the shape of their eyes. He said he was in fear for his life and he had to destroy them.

When questioned about the woman who claimed to have been kidnapped, Campbell said a "shape shifter" had taken over her body, so he shut her in a laundry room and broke out a window to keep an eye on her. He said he later sprayed insecticide at the woman so she would leave through the window.

Campbell is being held in lieu of $100,000 bond. In addition to the surety, further conditions of any pretrial release include abstaining from illegal drugs, taking prescribed drugs in full and on time, and keeping all doctor and psychologist appointments.

Look at it this way. We did vote down the amendment that would have given this MENSA wannabe the right to vote.

Trained law enforcement officers know to look for these subtle behavioral clues...

My imaginary friend just told me that a shape-shifter is an entity that has the ability to change form. ie. human changing into cat, cat turning into dog.

Kind of an Art Bell thing.

SKINWALKERS! WE GOT SKINWALKERS!

That is werewolves or "shape shifters"-- people that supposedly can turn themselves into any form of animal.

A shape-shifter is a were-creature, werewolf, wereleopard, etc, etc. There's a corner saloon where I live in which this happens every Friday night - perfectly normal folks around 5:00 PM, and by 9:00 it's the Star Wars cantina scene...

I thought Shape Shifters were part of Navajo Indian folklore. Gotta go read another Jim Chee novel to find out.

How to Become a Shifter or WereWolf

How does one become a Shifter??? Well, I don't know!

But there are a number of theorys and guidelines, and I will present them here. Please use your common sense when thinking about doing any of these excercises and if you are a child or underage, {You shouldn't be able to get here if you are a child or underage} show this to your parents and ask them permission.

DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for anyone who trys any of these things and causes a problem, I am not advising anyone to do any of these things, I am only presenting excercises which are reputed to be helpful in Shifterism as a source of information for persons interested in WereCreatures. Meaning: if you do any of this and get hurt, don't blame me.

Note: The excercises commonly practiced by Shifters are variations of these excercises, but everyone does things a little differently. Also instinct often leads Shifters to things that they need to do for their inner animal (such as taking a camping trip at a certain time when their animal really needs it). WARNING: ALCOHOL AND/OR DRUGS DO NOT MIX WITH MEDITATION OR TRANCE STATES, THEY TEND TO MAKE THINGS WORSE AND CAN EASILY RESULT IN THE WORST "BAD TRIPS" IN EXISTANCE

Excercise #1 Go to your library and check out a whole bunch of books on animals, especially the cat family, (Housecats, Tigers, Leopards, Panthers, Lynxes, Others) the dog family(Wolves, Foxes, Coyotes, Jackals, Dogs,Others) and Bears. Check out some on Hyenas, Badgers, Weasels, Crows, Ravens, Hawks, Owls, and Eagles too. Also, if there is an animal that you've always really liked or been obsessed with, check out books on that animal too. All of these books should be books with many color photographs of the animals, preferably in the Wild, not in pens or as pets. Look at all the photographs carefully, and think about what it might feel like to physically be those animals. Think about where they live, what they do, slinking through the grass, sleeping in the open air, napping in the sun on a rock, rolling in the dust for a dust bath, slipping through the scrubland in the dark of night in the cool night air.

Excercise #2 Find a live representation of your animal, if possible. Go to the zoo (with good binoculars) and watch various animals that might be your species for a long time, looking at them close-up with binoculars if need be. Watch how they move, how they get up and lay down.

Excercise #3 For this excercise, meditate, as vividly as you can picture, being an animal. Try to picture the physical sensations as good as possible, such as the feel of soft mud on the pads of your paws.

Excercise #4 Watch nature documentaries on TV that have lots of videos of your animal in the Wild. Watch your fellow Wolves (or whatever animals) frolic and do Wolf things and daydream about being there.

Excercise #5 This is one of the most important excercises. You really need to, as a Shifter, have access to a Wild area, however small, and go walking there alone from time to time. Remember, not all wild areas are safe to walk alone in. Be careful.

New Mexico to decide if "idiots" can vote.

New Mexico to decide if "idiots" can vote

Fri Nov 1, 1:04 PM ET

By Zelie Pollon

SANTA FE, New Mexico (Reuters) - New Mexico voters will decide on Tuesday whether they want "idiots" and "insane persons" to vote in their state.

Under the state's Constitution, drafted in 1912, "idiots" and "insane persons", as well as those "convicted of a felonious or infamous crime" are currently prohibited from voting.

Proposed Amendment 2 on the November 5 ballot would strike the terms "idiots" and "insane persons" from the Constitution. The measure will better reflect current understanding of mental health and remove archaic language, supporters said.

"There are so many varieties of mental illness with people who are perfectly capable of making a decision," said Bureau of Elections official Denise Lamb.

"I'm more worried about unstable people with guns than I am about unstable people voting," Lamb said.

The same type of amendment, with different wording, was on the ballot once before in the mid 1990s but did not pass because voters interpreted the wording as denying people a right to vote," Lamb said.

"I think it's good to bring your Constitution more in line with reality," she said.

The state's nonpartisan research group, Legislative Council Services, said the arguments in favour of the amendment are that it will remove wording that is "archaic, offensive and meaningless from the list of people ineligible to vote."

"The terms 'idiots' and 'insane persons' may not have been considered offensive in 1912, but today they are an embarrassment," the group said in a guide to voters.

It said the opposing argument suggests that removing the terms "without replacing it with terms that more accurately reflect contemporary understanding of mental health may be too sweeping a change."

The proposed amendment also lowers the voting age from 21 to 18 years, bringing the voting age in compliance with federal requirements.

Early voter Kathleen MacRae said changing the language made sense to her.

"I'm for liberalising all voting laws. Voting should be open and easy for everyone," she said. "And God knows there are already a lot of idiots voting."

Yeah, that's the ticket. He must also pledge "scout's honor" that he will do this.

I think this is an exerpt of the original show: The Chicken Heart

But I was thinking of the classic Bill Cosby routine.

Watch an old movie called Wolfen. The character takes on the shape of a wolf during certain periods and kills people then turns back in to the man and doesn't remember killing. Kinda like Werewolf stories.
