When street theatre goes bad
This is what happens when street theatre goes bad:
Radical-leftist fruitloop Andrew McCrae decided to protest police brutality, corporate irresponsibility and "police-state tactics",
so he did the most logical thing, and
shot and killed a police officer
as he was refuelling his car in California.
Prior to doing this, he registered himself as a corporation, giving himself immunity from prosecution, or at least turning the inevitable trial into a dramatisation of corporate excesses. Ooh, clever move, that.
posted a rant on IndyMedia
, confessing to the murder and justifying it as a political statement.
Soon afterwards, the police cornered him at a hotel, from which he tried to deliver a "Declaration of Renewed Independence" to a journalist.
Not surprisingly, the authorities (and indeed a lot of the posters on IndyMedia) are being pigheadedly literal-minded and refusing to view this as just a piece of street theatre.
