Michael Moore had many reasons to write the book, Stupid White Men ...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!, back in 2001. There never seems to be a final chapter in the book.
Who is the featured stupid white male that resembles Steve Sailer? Meet Terry Thompson of Ohio, who is now dead, along with dozens of exotic animals, because of his stupidity.Terry Thompson, Muskingum County Animal Farm Owner, Allegedly Killed Self After Freeing Exotic Animals
Back in October 2011, 62 year old Terry Thompson of Zanesville, Ohio, was housing over 50 large exotic animals like lions, tigers, bears, leopards, and monkeys. Terry had a big problem, like he couldn't afford to take care of his pets and was deeply in debt. He also was a social recluse who had many confrontations with neighbors and the police. The striking resemblances of Steve Sailer.
* Lonely, isolated, depressed, old white male
* Financial problems
* Never got along with his neighbors or general society.
Thompson, 62, had had repeated run-ins with the law and his neighbors. Lutz said that the sheriff's office had received numerous complaints since 2004 about animals escaping onto neighbors' property. The sheriff's office also said that Thompson had been charged over the years with animal cruelty, animal neglect and allowing animals to roam.
He had gotten out of federal prison just last month after serving a year for possessing unregistered guns.
John Ellenberger, a neighbor, speculated that Thompson freed the animals to get back at neighbors and police. "Nobody much cared for him," Ellenberger said.
Angie McElfresh, who lives in an apartment near the farm and hunkered down with her family in fear, said "it could have been an `f-you' to everybody around him."
And he finally met his snapping point. On October 2011, Terry Thompson let loose all this exotic pets he could not take care of, then commits suicide with a gun. The exotic animals, about 56 of them, caused so much nuisance that the police had to kill most of them.
Thanks, Terry Thompson. Rot in hell. And another chapter for the never ending book, Stupid White Males, and why to be very careful of the types like Terry Thompson and Steve Sailer.
