Discovery Channel's Gun Dude

Discovery Channel

I’m anti-mainstream media practices  but this is extreme!

James L. Lee, 43, expressed his rage against Discovery Channel’s programming by showing up armed and taking three hostages. I’m sure he got the attention the he was seeking, but not the results – he was shot by policemen on the scene. This was not his first action against the media company. According to Associated Press, Lee protested outside the company and charged with disorderly conduct in 2008.

Now, this is action! I’m not mad at Lee’s courage for standing up for what he believes in. I am a little disturbed by his method of handling the situation was a bit off. Everyone escaped safely, which is a blessing, but there are more civilized ways to get your point across.

What do you think of Lee’s actions? What could he had done differently?
