Discovery Channel Gunman Was Once A Human Smuggler
Don't let James Lee's statements about illegal aliens fool you into thnking he had some right leaning tendencies. It turns out that he was once arrested and imprisoned for smuggling illegal immigrants into the country from Mexico.
In 2003 Lee told a judge that he became a human trafficker after he was choked and robbed in Tijuana and then offered the job by his assailants. "For one brief moment in my whole worthless life I felt good about myself,” he told the judge. “I felt like I was really helping people.” He was arrested when he was caught trying to smuggle a woman into the U.S. in a hidden compartment of his car through the San Ysidro border into southern California.
The day James walked into the Discovery Channel's office he was carrying two non-firing starter guns and an explosive device. It was the explosive devices that wast he real danger as it was capable of killing someone, had it detonated.
Explosive Ordnance Disposal teams searched James J. Lee's rented residence on Thursday and found four additional devices detonated them remotely and safely.
As for the media reporting on Lee's inspiration, Al Gore.....crickets chirping.
