This photo appeared on Facebook recently, someone commemorating the 19th year of Matt Shepard’s passing. Since his death was inspiration for major legislation regarding “hate crimes,” I reluctantly thought I should take a look at it.
“Please be real! Please be real!” I thought. I don’t want another project.
It is fishy. Very fishy. Just eighteen months after the Shepard event we would be asked to believe that two psychopathic murderers just happened to be classmates at Columbine. Here are we asked to believe that two kids in Laramie, Wyoming also just happened to be natural-born killers. Such people are rare. That they would hook up in a small town like Laramie, Wyoming … is there something in the water?
I suspect what is up here is stereotyping, as Wyoming is a cowboy state (read “redneck”), so that if a kid is going to be attacked for being gay, that would be the ideal place.
The story is that Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson met Mathew Shepard in a bar, lured him to their truck, drove him to a distant spot and then beat him savagely, leaving him to die.
The evidence against McKinney and Henderson was slam-dunk, and very hard to believe. After their criminal rampage on Shepard, they brought back with them Shepard’s shoes and his credit card along with a blood-smeared gun.
In other words, they wanted to be caught. It’s almost like leaving a drivers licence behind at a mass shooting event.
I suspect that Mathew Shepard, unlike Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, was a real live boy. The interesting connection is Saudi Aramco Oil Company, where Shepard’s father worked, and the boy’s attendance at a school in Switzerland and residence in Dhahran. That is not a normal upbringing. It suggests to me that if Shepard was not killed that night, that he merely changed his identity and disappeared into foreign residency. Switzerland is a very nice place to live.
Let’s examine the red flags in this event:
- The two boys who attacked Shepard were unbelievably brutal, so much so that I don’t believe it happened. It is the stuff of legend, this notion that cowboys are homophobic and will kill another person just for making an advance. It is stereotypical, and in my view nonsense. A little razzing, maybe, a punch in the mouth possibly, but cold blooded murder? Anything is possible, but this stretches credulity.
- Two boys just happen to hook up and enjoy killing? The beating they supposedly administered was savage and deliberate. I know, there are bad people in this world, they do bad things. I can possibly see one man brutally torturing and killing another, but not two, not in Laramie. Each would have to be criminally insane, as their girlfriends claim neither was drunk or high.
- People obviously would have seen them in the bar, and possibly in the parking lot. They were not shy about leaving tracks. Inspector Clouseau could solve this crime.
- Leaving Shepard to die was foolish, because if he was found and had lived, he would talk. If they are so bloody violent as to leave him in a pile of blood and guts, finishing the job and getting rid of the body should have occurred to them.
- Bringing incriminating evidence back to Laramie was idiotic. A credit card? What are they going to do, buy some gasoline and alert authorities? His shoes? For what purpose? To pawn off?
- The two boys, once back in Laramie, started another fight. That served to draw police attention to them. It is like they wanted to be arrested.
Here’s some spook markers: Shepard survived 6 days in a coma, and died at 12:53 a.m. on October 12, 1998. October, as some readers know, was originally the eighth month of the year. Octa = 8 and that plus 1 and 2 = 11. 12:53 adds up to 11. of course, there are 1,440 minutes in a day, and of those 128 add up to 11, so we have a nine percent chance that his time of death was coincidental. Numbers are just evidence, never proof.
There’s more in the spook marker department. Here’s a passage from Wikipedia:
McKinney’s trial took place in October and November 1999. Prosecutor Cal Rerucha alleged that McKinney and Henderson pretended to be gay to gain Shepard’s trust. Price, McKinney’s girlfriend, testified that Henderson and McKinney had “pretended they were gay to get [Shepard] in the truck and rob him”.
If Straight were still here, he would be all over that footnote. Again, possibly innocent, but their two favorite numbers, 11 and 33, side by side? It does raise an eyebrow.
Here’s another very interesting passage, complete with spook marker:
The jury found McKinney not guilty of premeditated murder but guilty of felony murder and began to deliberate on the death penalty. Shepard’s parents brokered a deal that resulted in McKinney receiving two consecutive life terms without the possibility of parole. Henderson and McKinney were incarcerated in the Wyoming State Penitentiary in Rawlins and were later transferred to other prisons because of overcrowding.
Normally Wiki gives us more details, telling us where a prisoner is and what is inmate number is, even if fake. Here we find that they just went to “other” prisons. I think I know how to read that … they have in their wallets, along with Shepard’s credit card, a Get Out of Jail Free Card.
This was also intriguing:
Reggie Fluty, the first police officer to arrive at the scene, found Shepard alive but covered in blood. The medical gloves issued by the Albany County Sheriff’s Department were faulty, and Fluty’s supply ran out. She decided to use her bare hands to clear an airway in Shepard’s bloody mouth. A day later, she was informed that Shepard was HIV positive and that she might have been exposed to the virus due to cuts on her hands. After taking an AZT regimen for several months, she tested negative for HIV.
Wikipedia is mixing psyops on us. Fluty serves two purposes, first acting as a witness to bloody and beaten body. She also happens to have cuts on her hands, Shepard is HIV positive, so Fluty went on AZT and it worked! If Duesberg is around, someone notify him because as he tells us, AZT has never cured AIDS or harmed an HIV virus, if such a thing even exists.
So what is going on here? It is pretty easy to see that Shepard did not die and his assailants are not in prison. Why the fake event? People in power wanted to pass “hate crime” legislation, and finally got their wish on October 28, 2009, when Obama signed the Mathew Shepard Act.
“Hate crimes” are committed on the basis of a person’s protected characteristics … race, gender, nationality, sexual origination, etc. I regard such laws as vile because they leave the sphere of hard evidence and punish people for a state of mind. How do we know a state of mind? We either speculate based on circumstances, hope for a confession or just guess. And what if a state of mind changes? What if today I hate Jewish people, and tomorrow I marry one? I think it best just to let such matters lie dormant, and arrest and prosecute and imprison people on tangible evidence. “Hate crimes” give far too much discretionary leverage to the state.
I did not want to write this post, I wanted the Shepard event to have gone down as we are told it went down. That way I would not have to write this piece, and people would not say to me “You think everything is fake, right?”
No, I do not. However, if the Mathew Shepard event was real, I would not write about it.
