Let It Bleed / teenage killer obsessed with Satan, knives and sex
« on: May 06, 2005, 09:57:00 AM »
AT THE age of 14 Luke Mitchell was already a brooding outsider, obsessed with Satan, drugs, knives and sex.

The lank-haired, black-clad teenager liked to shock classmates and teachers at St David?s High School, Dalkeith, by scribbling Satanic verses on his jotters and calmly stubbing out lit cigarettes on his arm.

He carved the numbers 666 into his arm using a compass and wrote in an essay: ?Once you have shaken hands with the Devil then you have truly experienced life.?

Mitchell?s angst-ridden posturing and the enjoyment he appeared to take in others? discomfort excluded him from the mainstream at school. He skipped classes to smoke cannabis in a nearby park and hang out in an Edinburgh cemetery with a group of Goths who shared his passion for black clothes, shock-rocker Marilyn Manson and the music of the grunge band Nirvana.

A clever but callous teenager, he boasted that he smoked hundreds of cannabis joints a week, carried knives to school and was allowed to have sex with girlfriends at home despite being under-age.

Classmates described him as arrogant. One recalled him saying: ?I can just imagine myself going out and getting stoned and killing somebody and how funny it would be.?

Jodi Jones was one of the few people who claimed to see another side to Mitchell. She wrote in her diary that he was ?so sweet? and confided that she had fallen in love.

Friends said she felt they had something in common, both coming from single-parent families. Jodi?s father, Jimmy, committed suicide in 1999. But her devotion meant nothing to Mitchell. He two-timed her with Kimberley Thomson, who bore a striking resemblance to Jodi.

Mitchell was raised in a chaotic household. His parents, Corinne and Philip, separated when he was ten and his mother, a caravan dealer, had little control over her younger son.

She did nothing to discourage his obsession with the occult and seemed not to know or care that he was taking drugs and having under-age sex.

For his 15th birthday Corinne Mitchell, 45, took her son to a tattoo parlour. The Christmas after Jodi Jones was stabbed to death, she bought him a knife.

In the months leading up to Jodi?s death, Mitchell?s nihilistic outpourings went unchecked. ?Satan lives,? he scrawled on a school book. ?I have tasted the Devil?s green blood,? he wrote on another.

?Evil is the way?, ?Depression is only a stage in my life so f*** off and stay out of my mind?, and ?the finest day I ever had was when tomorrow never came? ? a quote from the Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain ? were among slogans that appeared on his book covers.

In an essay denying the existence of God, submitted five months before he killed Jodi, Mitchell wrote: ?If you ask me, God is just a futile excuse at most for a bunch of fools to go around annoying others who want nothing to do with him.

?Are these people insane? People like you need Satanic people like me to keep the balance. Once you shake hands with the Devil you then have truly experienced life.?

"From the world of darkness I did loose demons and devils in the power of scorpions to torment."

"I'd probably try to stop the rain forests from being cut down. I'd probably join the revolution down south somewhere and try to save my life on the planet Earth. I might go to Libya. I might go see the Ayatollah. I might go to France, catch somebody in France I'm upset with."

"You know, a long time ago being crazy meant something. Nowadays everybody's crazy."

"I can't judge any of you. I have no malice against you and no ribbons for you. But I think it is high time that you all started looking at yourselves, and judging the lie that you live in."

"No sense makes sense."

"It is not wrong to kill if in the end it is right."

 "I ran the gamut of the streets, I did everything that the children do. But I never let anything over on me enough to get ahold of me. I tried to understand what it is. I've learned from everything I've done."

"I've killed no one. I've ordered no one to be killed. These children who come to you with their knives, they're your children. I didn't teach them - you did."

"Look down at me and you see a fool, look up at me and you see a god, look straight at  me and you see yourself."

"Sanity is just a little box."

"I do not dislike you, I cannot dislike you. I am you. You are blood. You are my brother. That is why I can't fight you."

"The United States of America is the demon of the world."  

"Prison's in your mind - can't you see I'm free?"

"The only reason I'm in prison and you're out there is because theres more of your kind than mine."

"The real strong have no need to prove to the phonies."

"How can you judge someone who's already all the bad and worst there is? It's like judging the dead."

"We're all our own prisons, we are each all our own wardens and we all do our own time."

"Believe me, if I started murdering people, there'd be none of you left."

"I sit and I watch you from nowhere. You stand and you play the game of money. As long as you can sell a newspaper, some sensationalism, and you can laugh at someone and joke at someone and look down at someone, you know. You just sell those newspapers for public opinion, just like you are all hung on public opinion, and none of you have any idea what you are doing. You are just doing what you are doing for the money, for a little bit of attention from someone. You should all turn around and face your children and start following them and listening to them."

"I can't dislike you, but I will say this to you: you haven't got long before you are all going to kill yourselves, because you are all crazy. And you can project it back at me, but I'm only what lives inside of each and every one of you. I am just a reflection of you. You are not you, you are just reflections, you are reflections of everything that you think that you know."

"You can kill the ego, you can kill the pride, you can kill the want, the desire of a human being. You can lock him in a cell and you can knock his teeth out and smash his brain, but you cannot kill the soul. You never could kill the soul. It's always there, the beginning and the end. You cannot stop it. It's bigger than me. I'm just looking into it, and it frightens me sometimes."

"No matter what I get going they smash it until they are gone."

"Until I get my rights, nobody has rights."

"First Amendment of George Washington's Constitution says I got the right to say any word I want and I can make up any word I want and I got the right to carry arms and take my rights. When I can, I will. When I can't, I won't play like I can. I know I can and I will but truth says only when I can, then I will."

"I don't know who I am. I am whoever you make me, but what you want is a fiend; you want a sadistic fiend because that is what you are. You can jump up and scream, "Guilty!" and you can say what a no good guy I am, and what an evil, fiend, eeky-sneaky slimy devil I am. It is your reflection and you're right, because that is what I am. I am whatever you make me."

"If you hold the negative up to the light, you don't see the light - you just see the negative. I am a reflection of your negative."

"The police used to watch over the people. Now they're watching the people."

"I never went to school, so I never growed up to read and write too good, so I have stayed in jail and I have stayed stupid, and I have stayed a child while I have watched your world grow up, and then I look at the things that you do and I don't understand."  

"I've looked for home. I must be in truth to be at home. If I say something and they don't like what I say, they try to prove me wrong. Proving me wrong don't stop the cold wind. We seen it coming in the long ago. But they worry more about money than rain or tides, sunshine or the balance of the day. I got 62 years in one day."

"It's all your fear. You look for something to project it on, and you pick out a little old scroungy nobody that eats out of a garbage can, and that nobody wants, that was kicked out of the penitentiary, that has been dragged through every hellhole that you can think of, and you drag him and put him in a courtroom."

"I know and understand you are much more than what I think you are. But first, I must deal with you the way I think of you, even if that's only my own thinking and not you."

"I don't think like you people. You people put importance on your lives. Well, my life has never been important to anyone."

"There is no way that you can know the taste of water unless you drink it or unless it has rained on you or unless you jump  in the river."

"Music is like the soul from center. It's sound from the birth baby to the old and death and beyond. It hooks up life, death and all we don't understand. It is the universe on a level all its own. There are awarenesses hidden within sound just like programs within your computer."

"Most of the people at the ranch that you call the Family were just people that you did not want, people that were alongside the road, that their parents had kicked out, that did not want to go to Juvenile Hall. So I did the best I could and I took them up on my garbage dump and I told them this: that in love, there is no wrong."

"I don't understand you, but I don't try. I don't try to judge nobody. I know that the only person I can judge is me. But I know this: that in your hearts and your own souls, you are as much responsible for the Vietnam war as I am for killing these people."

"You've drugged me for years, dragging me up and down prison hallways, laying my head on every chopping block you've got, chained me, burnt me, but you cannot defeat me. In all that was said about me, it was not me saying it, and if you see a false prophet, it is only a reflection of your own judgments."

"Mr. and Mrs. America, you are wrong. I am not the King of the Jews nor am I a hippie cult leader. I am what you have made me and the mad dog devil killer fiend leper is a reflection of your society."

"Whatever the outcome of this madness that you call a fair trial or Christian justice, you can know this: In my mind's eye my thoughts light fires in your cities."

"My father is your jailhouse. My father is the system."

"Helter Skelter is confusion. Confusion is coming down around you fast. If you can't see the confusion coming down around you fast, you can call it what you wish."

"I have done my best to get along in your world and now you want to kill me, and I look at you, and then I say to myself: You want to kill me? Ha. I'm already dead, have been all my life."

"Is it a conspiracy that the music is telling the youth to rise up against the establishment because the establishment is rapidly destroying things? Is that a conspiracy? The music speaks to you every day, but you are too deaf, dumb, and blind  to even listen to the music."

Open Free for All / Paris Hilton cell phone hack

* You might have caught wind of the Paris Hilton cell phone hack last week. Apparently, some pranksters got into the idiot heiress' T-Mobile Sidekick account and dug up scads of celebrity phone numbers, which were instantly published on the Internet.

* The Sidekick is a combination cell phone and personal digital assistant (PDA). The pranksters didn't hack into Miss Hilton's cell phone per se, but instead accessed the Internet account where her cell phone's data was stored.

* No, I do not like Paris Hilton; I cannot bring myself to accept fame without substance. But perhaps this airhead can serve a useful purpose here. The reason the attention whore's PDA was hacked was that her password was easy to guess: tinkerbell, which is the name of her sad little pet Chihuahua.

* Folks, your password should never be obvious. Emaciated, immoral Hollywood celebrities take note: The names of pets or children should never be used. Stick a number in your password for extra protection. You can find other password hints in my books. It's a corrupt world, so you can be tawdry with your social life, but be smart with your passwords.

* If you think I'm being unduly harsh on Miss Hilton, consider this: All the graphics images found on her cell phone account were pictures of . . . herself!

Uploading (sometimes called "mind uploading") is the hypothetical process of transferring a mind from a biological brain to a computer. The idea is that by scanning the synaptic structure of a brain, we could implement the same computations on a computer that would normally take place in the brain. If you think the essence of yourself is information -- your memories, values, attitudes and emotions --rather than the gray, cheesy lump inside your skull, then you might view your identity as being preserved in this process. The scanning could be accomplished by means of nanotechnology. Uploading should work for cryonics patients provided their brains are frozen in a sufficiently intact state.

Uploads could live in an artificial reality (i.e.  constructed computer simulated environment). An option would be to have robot bodies and sensors so they can resume their lives in physical reality. The subjective time of uploads would depend on how fast the computers are on which they are running. Uploads could be distributed over vast computer networks and they could make frequent backup copies of themselves. This should make it possible for uploads indefinite life spans. Uploads could subsist on a very small amount of resources compared to a biological human, since they don't need physical food or shelter or transportation. Uploads could reproduce extremely quickly (simply by making copies of themselves). This implies that resources could quickly become scarce unless reproduction is limited.
