SUICIDAL IGNORANCE: -SUICIDE IS EXECUTION; -EXECUTION IS HOMICIDE.

Dear Seattle Times and The Seattle Post Intelligencer, September 4th, 2001

I have a question for the Seattle media: The "bridge jumper" August 28th, 2001; was a lobbyist in Olympia; What does she lobby for? Do you care - or know? Why do you not report it? Who cares what she lobbies for? She is obviously one of the weak, best not to talk about her. I have seen her labeled "mentally ill", "a young woman", "a legislative lobbyist in Olympia", "a public protestor"; as "distraught over a personal relationship"; "a distraught 26 year old", "a canal jumper", "threatening suicide in a public place"; I feel the only "mentally ill" feeling she has are the one's the Seattle media is choosing to ignore; It is called "intolerance towards another persons experience and feelings", and this "intolerance" creates the need for a "mental illness" for you to see and label (along with all the "other" labels.). Fine, Seattle media can ignore it all you want to, but I have one question for you; What did she lobby the Washington legislature for in Olympia? (I will be letting you and a lot of others know.).

Suicide is personal execution. Execution is homicide (defined by a coroner). Homicide and terrorism is a sickness. A mentally ill culture of execution, terrorists, and suicidal people; will kill US all.

WE CREATE EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE THROUGH IGNORANCE AND FEELING IGNORANCE. THE SEATTLE MEDIA CAN IGNORE THE TERRORISM THEY ARE CREATING AND LABEL IT "RESTRAINT" ALL YOU WANT; IT WILL ONLY TERRORIZE AND KILL PEOPLE; IT IS "IGNORANCE".

Sincerely,
Kenn Dzaman




SENT TO SEATTLE MEDIA AUGUST 19th, 2001:
..............................................................
Dear Editor of the Seattle Times, (Sent - August 19th, 2001).

Whether it is Seattle police on the streets, or the "surgical" killing done in a "death chamber", killing a human being for any reason, is murderous and terrorism. (State sanctioned.). The idea that when a police officer kills someone it is somehow "justified" because they are a police officer, is ridiculous. When anyone kills anyone, or suffers a traumatic human death, whether it is by accident or with intention; they could lose their job, their family - everything that is precious. They may even become a "self - terrorist" and kill themselves. When a person is involved in human death, the more traumatic it is, and the more responsibility they feel for its creation; the more of their personal humanity will die. A person can only suffer human death in silence for so long, - before all that is left is terror. It is the personal human justice every person feels from the experience they have "set" themselves up for; called, your "feeling conscience".

The culture of the United States has created millions of these disenfranchised people; they blow up high schools, federal buildings, beat their wives and kids, and generally just create the terror they are feeling.

A police officer is a human being, it is time we started treating them as such. As soon as the Seattle police are on the same side as the "public" they are supposed to serve and protect, I imagine that will be possible. With the federal drug war, as it now stands, there are two cultures in Seattle: Seattle people and Seattle police.

Sincerely,
Kenn Dzaman ]

"Long wait is finally over for Tim Blake Nelson's 'O'";

[( By SEAN AXMAKER; SPECIAL TO THE POST-INTELLIGENCER; Saturday, September 1, 2001;

It's been a long road for Tim Blake Nelson to get his second feature "O" out of limbo and in front of an audience, about 1 1/2 years. "It wasn't fun," Nelson said.
...............................................................
The controversy came in the midst of editing the film.
"The shooting was finished and the editing begun when, in spring of 1998, the Columbine massacre shocked the nation. Six weeks later, after the first cut was completed, Miramax was worried. Harvey (Weinstein) has a different agenda than several years ago, when Miramax was putting out 'Priest' and 'Kids.' I just think it became a movie they didn't want to put out," Nelson said.
"Harvey's concern, he told me, is that there would be copycat murders."
So why did Dimension hold back a film that tackles the tangled issues of teen violence, racism and self-esteem with intelligence and sensitivity while releasing "Scream" sequels and other slasher films featuring sadistic acts of violence against teenagers?
"I asked the same question." Nelson paused, shifted in his seat, and continued. "You know, that's for them to answer."
..................................................................
And again, to put it more succinctly, I think it's about how a society will ultimately destroy a foreign entity, some other, that is able to infiltrate it, in doing so harnessing the worst aspects of society: society's cruelty, society's intolerance, society's passiveness in the face of injustice. All that is really at work in high school with adolescents. In fact, it's heightened." )]

Southbound traffic on Interstate 5 approaching the Lake Washington ship canal was at a standstill for hours during rush hour Tuesday when a woman climbed onto the bridge railing and threatened to jump.
She plunged into the canal about three hours after parking her car in the southbound lanes and mounting the bridge railing.
Three police boats were waiting below, and one picked her up and rushed to Ivar's dock nearby. The woman, 28, was put on a stretcher and taken by ambulance to Harborview Medical Center, where she was in critical condition with chest and abdominal injuries. )]

"Woman in critical condition after jumping from Ship Canal Bridge";

[( By Dave Birkland and Christine Clarridge; Seattle Times staff reporters; Tuesday, August 28, 2001; - 01:01 p.m. Pacific;
The woman who jumped from the west side of the Ship Canal Bridge on Interstate 5 this morning survived the jump and tied up traffic on the freeway for nearly four hours during rush hour.
The 28-year-old woman, whose identity wasn't available, was in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
She jumped shortly after 10 a.m. after halting traffic in several directions for several hours.
The traffic jam was so bad that vehicles were backed up from the bridge north to Shoreline, from I-5 east on State Route 520 to Kirkland and for several miles south to Boeing Field.
The woman jumped from a railing adjacent to the southbound lanes, but police were forced to shut down the northbound lanes because passing motorists were shouting encouragement for her to jump, police said.
Duane Fish, Seattle police spokesman, said while police negotiators were trying to develop a rapport with the woman, motorists heading north were shouting such things as, "jump," "get it over with," "just do it."
"Our crises people were out there trying to save a life. It made it extremely difficult for them," Fish said. .............

"Mentally ill endure racial bias";
"Minorities suffermore illnesses but get inferior care, report says";

[( By ERICA GOODE THE NEW YORK TIMES; Seattle post Intelligencer; [Nation/World]; Monday, August 27, 2001;
The United States' ethnic and racial minorities face large and troubling disparities in mental health care, the surgeon general said yesterday in a broad and comprehensive report that offered a rare look at the mental health needs and obstacles to treatment of four minority groups.
Minorities in the United States, the surgeon general, Dr. David Satcher, said, "suffer a disproportionate burden of mental illness" because people in those groups often have less access to services than other Americans, receive lower-quality care and are less likely to seek help when they are in distress.
..................................
And because of the stigma attached to mental illness in some minority cultures, he said, members of those groups are often reluctant to use services, even when they are available.
...................................
In addition, the report found, racism and discrimination can lead to errors in diagnosis or to inappropriate treatment.
..........................
Among some minorities, the report said, distrust and fear of the mental health system and practitioners are common.
.............................
Satcher urged members of minority groups to seek out help when they suffered from "depression or anxiety or anything that interferes with one's ability to function."

"Murderer might not survive suicide try";
"Doctors say leap from jail balcony left Charles Finch paralyzed below waist";

[( By DAVID FISHER; SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER REPORTER; [Northwest]; Monday, October 30, 2000;
EVERETT -- Double-murderer Charles Finch might not survive long enough to find out whether a Snohomish County jury would agree to put him to death, his doctors have testified.
Even if he lives, his injuries might be grave enough to bring his second death-penalty trial to a halt before the jury gets the chance to deliberate.
NOTE: This article has been updated since it was originally published in the newspaper.
Doctors told Superior Court Judge Ronald L. Castleberry today that Finch's condition had worsened and he could die within 24 hours. Castleberry delayed a scheduled sentencing hearing and sent jurors home until Tuesday.
Finch, 51, apparently tried to commit suicide Wednesday night with a 14-foot jump from a mezzanine railing in the Snohomish County Jail. )]

WALLA WALLA - When James Homer Elledge admitted stabbing and strangling a Lynnwood woman in a church basement in April 1998, he told police he had nothing to lose with a confession.
"I've already ... made my bed, now I gotta sleep in it the rest of my life 'cause I'm never getting out again," said Elledge, who at the time was on parole for fatally bludgeoning a Seattle motel manager with a hammer.
He pleaded guilty in Snohomish County Superior Court to the aggravated first-degree murder of Eloise Jane Fitzner, and instructed his lawyer not to put on a defense during the penalty phase of his capital case.
"There is a very wicked part of me, and this wicked part of me needs to die," Elledge told the jury that condemned him for Fitzner's death.

"DEATH PENALTY";
"[Capital punishment perpetuates violence]";

Sandi Thompson-Royer; Spokane; [Opinion]; Letters to the Editor; - Seattle Post Intelligencer; Wednesday, August 8, 2001;
On Aug. 28 at 3 a.m., most of us will be sound asleep while James Elledge is scheduled to be executed at the Walla Walla State Penitentiary. Intimate participants in the execution will be employees of the prison system. I cannot even begin to imagine what it must be like for them to go to work that day. I think I would call in sick.
Having worked for more than 15 years as an advocate for survivors of domestic and sexual violence and hearing their horrific stories, compassion for offenders does not come easy for me. However, I still believe if we continue to execute human beings, we are perpetuating violence in our society and asking individual human beings like those who work in the prison system to participate in an act that must crush the soul to its very core. I agree with Henry Schwarzchild, former member of the board of directors of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, who said,
"We must refuse as citizens to be made into willing co-conspirators with a violent crime." )]

Dear Seattle, August 30th, 2001


[ Meditation on life, Suicide, and Execution: (Trauma is born - or created? Trauma is born By US all. Terrorism is born by us all. Suicide is born by us all. Execution is born by us all.).].

[(Maybe we could have an; Execution day in Seattle! Close down I-5 once every couple month's so we can push off the people we want to execute, and those that want to jump can also! (ha, ha - trauma humor...)!].

There is a very fine line between suicide and terrorism in human created death. As you can see by the events on August 29th, 2001*; Execution and suicide are a form of terrorism. (As is any human created death of another human being). The "fine line" between individual terrorism (suicide) and cultural terrorism (execution) is in who dies. (It usually takes a "trauma" to create "hope"; (like being born.). Please, do not try to create hope by surviving or dying from jumping off a bridge or killing another human being, there are better ways!).

*[(Events August 29th, 2001: Public execution of James Elledge - and public attempted execution (suicide) of the "bridge jumper"). - (One of my best friends had a baby August 29th!!!! Boy, black hair! All fingers and toes and big hands! Congratulations Dan and Julie! Welcome Max Devine to our world! (Maxamillion Devine has been born!).].


The truth is, that the whole of your life's experience is but the outer expression of your inner feelings. Meditation is not the "thought" process some people feel it is; it is in feeling, before the process of thought. In meditation, a person reflects and feels their experiences. To feel life and try to understand it is a very complex process. Meditation done correctly will create the action in your life, to act on your feelings in your day to day existence, without "invisible walls" denying their existence, and making it hard for you to be, who you want to be. So you are sitting on a very high bridge contemplating life, is that terrorism? Terrorism is the intention and creation of human death; individual, or "others".

So I feel there are 100's and even thousands of "suicidal terrorist's" out "there". What do you think and feel they are going to do? How do you stop a suicide, a terrorist, or terrorism? By not creating it.

We can ignore these "suicidal terrorists" as long as we want to, but I am here to tell you; It will create terrorism, suicide, and death in Seattle; Just like it did in Littleton or Oklahoma City.

Go jump off a bridge!

sure, it is not "our" fault...
How could it be?

Execution and Suicide are very closely related, do you feel it yet, it is called; TERRORISM.
I love that woman who jumped off the I-5 bridge!
Most people commit suicide alone and at home, and everyone gets to easily and "surgically" ignore it, well....

you can not ignore someone jumping off a bridge in rush hour while we (The State of Washington - Residents) execute another human being.

Execution, suicide and terrorism; - It is US.

PS; Go ahead and flush the toilet on this jump. No need to look at what you are creating for too long. Send it away, where you won't have to look at it or deal with it - but someone will have to...

Go ahead and flush the toilet on this execution.......it is done.

Time to move on!

(What was the threat? Their cars? That's a pretty "automatic" response!).).
Dear Seattle Times, August 31,2001
Seattle is ignoring the terror the Seattle Police Department is creating - from the killing of unarmed motorists, to video taping murder, to WTO abuse, - and now - public Seattle police officer "shootouts" on public streets! (I resided in the WTO "riot zone" and the Seattle police were very abusive all week. - And were the only people (and are) the only people in Seattle I truly fear.). Now you have the Seattle police crashing a Seattle police car into a Seattle police car; - while the Seattle police officers are on duty; (to "serve and protect the public"), and having a shootout with uniformed Seattle police officers and trying to kill Seattle police officers. Seattle police officers, in uniform, on duty, try to "justifiably" kill each other, and everything is "a-okay!". Maybe they shouldn't have rammed each other?- yeah, - that was the Seattle police departments mistake - they shouldn't have rammed each other. What about identifying a "potential" target or "threat" before shooting? Oh, it was done correctly and to the book? Sounds like the "legal" book on the internal investigations of the Seattle police needs to be burned. For an internal Seattle police department problem - that was allowed to be repeated - that created a public shootout between Seattle police officers; on Seattle streets; For it to be "labeled" a "justifiable shooting" is nothing short of ridiculous and absolute "racism" in our justice system.
Ignorance, - intolerance, and hatred - is obviously going to be Seattle's "new" motto. But traffic will "flow" smoothly!
Ignorance is bliss Seattle. So I will leave you to it. I am moving from Seattle September 15th, 2001. Goodbye!

Dear Seattle, August 30th, 2001

Meditation on life, Suicide, and Execution: (Trauma is born - or created?).
(Maybe we could have an; Execution day! Close down I5 once every couple month's so we can push off the people we want to execute, and those that want to jump can also! (ha, ha - trauma humor...)!

There is a very fine line between suicide and terrorism in human created death. As you can see by the events on August 29th, 2001*; Execution and suicide are a form of terrorism. (As is any human created death of another human being). The "fine line" between individual terrorism (suicide) and cultural terrorism (execution) is in who dies. (It usually takes a "trauma" to create "hope"; (like being born.). Please, do not try to create hope by surviving or dying from jumping off a bridge or killing another human being, there are better ways!).

*[(Events August 29th, 2001: Public execution of James Elledge - and public attempted execution (suicide) of the "bridge jumper"). - (One of my best friends had a baby August 29th!!!! Boy, black hair! All fingers and toes and big hands! Congratulations Dan and Julie! Welcome Max Devine to our world! (Maxamillion Devine has been born!).]

The truth is, that the whole of your life's experience is but the outer expression of your inner feelings. Meditation is not the "thought" process some people feel it is; it is in feeling, before the process of thought. In meditation, a person reflects and feels their experiences. To feel life and try to understand it is a very complex process. Meditation done correctly will create the action in your life, to act on your feelings in your day to day existence, without "invisible walls" denying their existence, and making it hard for you to be, who you want to be. So you are sitting on a very high bridge contemplating life, is that terrorism? Terrorism is the intention and creation of human death; individual, or "others".

So I feel there are 100's and even thousands of "suicidal terrorist's" out "there". What do you think and feel they are going to do? How do you stop a suicide, a terrorist, or terrorism? By not creating it.
We can ignore these "suicidal terrorists" as long as we want to, but I am here to tell you; It will create terrorism, suicide, and death in Seattle; Just like it did in Littleton or Oklahoma City.
Sincerely,
Kenneth G. Dzaman

Coroner calls it "homicide"
by Burke 9:37pm Tue Aug 28 '01 (Modified on 6:43pm Wed Aug 29 '01)
kilgore@dangpow.com
Elledge executed in Walla Walla. Is it Homicide or not?
Tonight I was browsing through the articles on the front page of the Seattle Times website and I came accross information of last nights execution in Walla Walla. Anyone who is opposed to the death penalty may agree with me here that this is quite a strange article because in it the coroner lists the mans death as "homocide." If this was the case shouldnt there be a party that is responsible? Here is a clip
"Walla Walla County Coroner Stephen Ames said
he took the body out at 1:05 a.m. He said there
would be no autopsy, as Elledge had requested.
He described Elledge's body as that of a "normal,
healthy male." Blood samples were taken to
verify the lethal injection, the results of which will
not be ready for several weeks, he said. He listed
the cause of death as homicide, noting that it was
an execution."
Think what you will, but it seems to me that someone should be held accountable.

I drove up at 5:15pm..to Denny Park...
I should have taken the bus.
As I pulled off Aurora...an unmarked Seattle Police Car started to follow me, after a couple turns, I turned into a parking lot.
I got to talk to Seattle Police Chief Gil Kelikowske!!
I had put my back license plate on the front..
the three Seattle police officers took about 30 minutes to check me out...
One was very very mean and played with his gun and stared me down the whole time..
I asked him how he was doing, he said nothing, just stared at me looking as mean and tough as he could, you almost felt sorry for him,
almost,
he was a total jerk. (Last name Chiro - the other two officers were "nice".).
The officers that signed the $258.00 ticket were Phay and G. Rice (they treated me with at least a little respect - Chiro,,, I finally looked him in the eyes and said; "You are a very mean man".

Dear Editor of the Seattle Times,
[{( This letter is published on this and other web sites, - and has been emailed to a lot of other different resources:

[Seattle Times: August 19, 2001: "When cops draw their guns.
Dear Editor of the Seattle Times,
Whether it is Seattle police on the streets, or the "surgical" killing done in a "death chamber", killing a human being for any reason, is murderous and terrorism. (State sanctioned.). The idea that when a police officer kills someone it is somehow "justified" because they are a police officer, is ridiculous. When anyone kills anyone, or suffers a traumatic human death, whether it is by accident or with intention; they could lose their job, their family - everything that is precious. They may even become a "self - terrorist" and kill themselves. When a person is involved in human death, the more traumatic it is, and the more responsibility they feel for its creation; the more of their personal humanity will die. A person can only suffer human death in silence for so long, - before all that is left is terror. It is the personal human justice every person feels from the experience they have "set" themselves up for; called, your "feeling conscience".
The culture of the United States has created millions of these disenfranchised people; they blow up high schools, federal buildings, beat their wives and kids, and generally just create the terror they are feeling.
A police officer is a human being, it is time we started treating them as such. As soon as the Seattle police are on the same side as the "public" they are supposed to serve and protect, I imagine that will be possible. With the federal drug war, as it now stands, there are two cultures in Seattle: Seattle people and Seattle police.
Sincerely,
Kenn Dzaman

Is the Seattle Police Deapartment, or individual Seattle Police officers; Accountable for crimes they may have committed? (Beyond apologies or civil monetary settlements?)??
Dear Concerned Human Being,
Where is the - "community and public" responsibility??
INTOLERANCE: In Seattle.
(It is what I felt all day today as I tried to find out what to do about the Seattle police being charged with breaking the law..).
How easy it is to have "others" arrested and put in jail, when "others" break laws. I am finding, - when the Seattle police break laws, (from my experience so far), it doesn't sound like the Seattle police are put in jail or charged with crimes (they have committed on duty). (And there is nowhere to "realistically" report it, without personally filing suit against the police, and having personal evidence against them...What about "community" evidence??? Is it not what Seattle police officers use in arresting "suspects"??? (At least I feel it is the way it is "supposed" to be,, -- the laws passed by the community, suspects may have broken them, so they are arrested???....).
I am also feeling that I am being presented with the -"cultural"- feeling, that taking police to court for breaking laws; is somehow, - a "cultural taboo" and should not be discussed.

Who is responsible for local police mistakes?
Dear Concerned Human Beings, Writers, Editors, and "others", Aug. 1, 2001
Local Police-Responsibility, -And The CHARGE of Racism.
The New York Times is doing the United States, and the city of Seattle, a great disservice.
The New York Times is creating fear in Seattle, and being ignorant.
The New York Times should be ashamed of it's reporting on the Seattle Police Chief,
Gil Kerlikowske, on July 30, 2001;
It is a slap in the face to Seattle.
The New York Times could report on other facts, -on Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske's performance;
But like the Seattle media,
The New York Times has chosen ignorance.
(I would call The New York Times and the local Seattle media racist, except The New York Times and the local Seattle media would not here it.).
Sincerely,
Kenn Dzaman_____

Local-Police-Responsibility,and the CHARGE of Racism in the United States

"I feel" - if the Seattle police department is not held accountable for their exchange of bullets; no one is.
I do not feel the city of Seattle is focusing on the foundation causing the problem of street violence and racism between the Seattle police department and the public; it is the Federal drug war.
Dear Seattle Journalists, writers, editors, and Concerned Human Beings,
You have all recently written articles on violence and race related issues. Yet you fail to openly discuss the events and the fear that is being created from them, and the true basis of the race issues at hand in Seattle.
The Seattle Police Department, and this country, may well be racist, and it is time to stop. You are feeding and helping to create the fear on Seattle streets buy not discussing these issues truthfuly. Fine if the United States is not racist, but like anything else, until it is proven and experienced, it is all just talk.

Please help me charge the Seattle police with a crime.

Please, I feel the Seattle police put my life in unecessary negligent danger. I need as many witnesses and people who feel the same way, to step forward and communicate with me.
This is a well documented case, it will take organizing the gathering of witnessed accounts, and people who also feel their life was, and is, in danger due to ongoing police communication problems. Please contact me if you can help.

Dear Seattle Times
by Space 2001 1:25am Fri Jul 13 '01 (Modified on 2:25pm Fri Jul 13 '01)
A comment to Seattle Times (I emailed them) on their coverage of the Police shooting 39 shots at each other, while no "criminals" where present.
Dear Seattle Times,
To say no one was hurt when three Seattle police officers shoot at each other, is like saying no one is hurt when a bank is robbed. I often go through the area where this shooting occurred, and I am very hurt. Any faith I had in the Seattle police is now gone. The Seattle police officers stray bullets, (they shot at each other), threatened my life and safety. (They obviously did not know where there bullets where going.) The Seattle police should be held to the same standards as anyone. The Seattle police shot at each other, obviously with ignorance, negligence, and passion. (They luckily missed?) A crime of ignorance, negligence, or passion, is still a crime; we are not at war. (Unless I have not been notified.) The three Seattle police officers should be charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and reckless endangerment. The three Seattle police officers tried to kill each other and fired twenty shots at each other, while no criminals where around, only themselves. (Don?t police cars have lots of numbers and license plates on them, and radios for communication? How about race, age, and size of the criminal ? police officers? Does any of this matter?) To say no one was hurt from these three Seattle police officers shooting at each other incenses me.
The Seattle Times has reaffirmed my loss of faith in personal responsibility in the Seattle police force. The lack of reaction by your newspaper, and in the Seattle people in general, has confirmed my decision to move out of Seattle. (The lack of responsibility in the creation of this ?criminal? event is appalling. The ?criminal? was well known, allowed to go on ?ride alongs?, and had ?the run of the station?. He returned the stolen car, then was arrested. The ?criminal? did not have a gun, and there was no ?criminal? around when the police started shooting at each other. The real sad part is, the ?very severe emotional problems? the criminal was known to be suffering.) I have one request, for it will take me six to twelve months to move. I am 42, white, 6?-4?, 185lbs., balding, -with three piercings. Seattle police and other gun owners, I do not own a gun, I do not drive during rush hours, and I do not road rage?.. -please- -do not shoot me.
Sincerely,
Kenneth G. Dzaman

Rally to Protest Racial Profiling and Police Brutality, Tomorrow (7/9)
by AV 5:53pm Sun Jul 8 '01 (Modified on 9:06pm Sun Jul 8 '01)
Tomorrow, July 9, 2001, at 5:30 PM a march is planned from 23rd and Union (the corner where the SPD took the life of Aaron Roberts) to the SPD's East Precinct. Join the People's Union for Economic Justice and others to protest police brutality and racial profiling and to demand police accountability. As the Aaron Roberts shooting fades from front-page news let's remind Seattle that problems of race, policing and accountability continue and must be addressed.
