A troubled boy/teen, expelled from school, into drugs and alcohol, in and out of children's homes and juvenile detention centers, is picked up by the gakkai cult org..
A common theme - a troubled and lost soul unknowingly steps into a the cult trap.
His way of chanting, btw, I've seen much stranger mannerisms, but I must say it does look a bit insane to me. (Apologies if that comes across as a bit harsh, but that's honestly how I view it, today.)
Okay, you want to know what's funny? Chicago Jt. Terr. Men's Division Leader Guy McCloskey had a son who was a skinhead, but a *nonracist* skinhead, of all things! Typically, skinheads are white supremacists. But not Guy McCloskey's loin-offspring, oh no O_O Apparently, Guy and Mrs. McCloskey came home from a weekend away to find their home's walls spattered with blood, as Sonny Boy had had a BIG party while they were gone, and a rival gang came on by! But the official story was that, oh, this wasn't really his FAULT, he was just doing his human revolution yadda yadda yadda. Sonny Boy died in a motorcycle accident. At the point that he was apparently *finally* "getting his life together." I do not mean to make points at the expense of others' feelings, but come on. WTH?? What the hell is "Buddhahood" worth if people just *assign* it to some loser/criminal's untimely death? Just because said loser/criminal's DAD is an SGI-USA Big Cheese? If people assign it to the death of a woman who is shotgunned to death by her ex-con husband in a 7-11 parking lot (this actually happened in my district in Raleigh, North Carolina)?
Oh, you didn't hear about that?? Surprise surprise - read on: [murderpedia.org
It turns out that she met him when she was working as a nurse in the prison where he was incarcerated for raping his own son. She then married him. Her own son was convicted of a notorious murder - apparently, it was front page news in USA Today, but I can't track it down, nor the details of Allen Holman's sexual abuse of his own son. This is what I heard, though. She herself told me that she had a wood-burned sign saying "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" in her front yard, and in the aftermath of her son's arrest for murder, there were journalists taking pictures of her house and that sign and she actually physically *attacked* them. It was all extremely weird. This happened in New York, but I don't kow what city, and I don't know what year, except that I think it was before 1990 (the year she married Allen Holman). I can't find out her name before that. Her daughter's name is Deborah Hartless of Baltimore - if anyone can find the name/details of the murderer/son and Linda Holman's previous name, I'll send you cookies. Promise!Death penalty on hold, but man seeks execution Holman scheduled to die
March 9 for wife's murder
A debate over how the state carries out executions has stopped the capital
punishment process, but one death row inmate says he wants to be executed
as scheduled next month for killing his wife.
Allen Holman, 47, is scheduled to be executed March 9. He has fired his
lawyers and dropped his appeals, but the state may not be able to carry
out the execution.
Four executions scheduled before Holman's have been stopped by a Wake
County judge over the issue of a prison doctor's role in the death
The impasse arose when the state Medical Board passed an ethics policy
that forbids a doctor from participating in an execution, although state
law requires that a doctor be presentp=.
In 2002, Holman wrote the court demanding that he be executed. His
stepdaughter said she wants to watch him die for her mother's death. "I'm
really hoping and praying that this will happen," said Deborah Hartless,
39, of Baltimore. Her mother, Linda Holman, was shot to death in July 1997
in a store parking lot.
How's THAT for a double bind??? I can't find out if he's even still alive...On July 28, 1997, a desperate Linda Holman called 911 as she sped away from her husband, going 90 mph along N.C. 55 toward Apex. During the 911 call, she pleaded for help saying her husband was ramming her car. "My husband's trying to kill me ... He's chasing me," Linda Holman told the dispatcher. "Oh please, God! Oh please, I don't want to die now."
Another transcription: Allen Holman gunned down his wife in a gas station parking lot. A 911 tape reveals his wife screaming, "I don't wanna die, please God, not now."
She was also chanting NMRK - you can hear it on the 911 recording (which I haven't been able to find yet but I and others heard back in the day). So she attained Buddhahood? Was it before or while her husband was shooting her dead?
Remember - these two people were in MY district in Raleigh, NC! I *knew* them! I didn't like either of them - she scared me, and he creeped me out. If anyone is interested in reading about my fellow District member, here is a nice summary of his life story: [www.mail-archive.com
There's a video here of one of the murder victim's daughters - she looks a lot like her. Odd that I can't find any pictures of Linda Holman, the murder victim: [www.wral.com
She had another, much younger, daughter who was mixed-race. Yeah, I know, shouldn't be a big deal, but in North Carolina, that detail is *noticed*. Shortly before Linda was murdered, this girl was about 12.Friends of Linda Holman reportedly claimed that she was terrified of
Allen in the months leading up to her death. Linda, 49, and Allen, 39,
had been married for seven years, but Allen's bouts with depression had
become severe, and he had attempted suicide in March 1997. Linda
confided in friends that she locked her bedroom door at night because
she was so afraid of him. And Allen allegedly refused to take his
Allen had endured much hardship during that time. He had suffered a back
injury that led to his being laid-off from his job as a bagger at Food
Lion (grocery store). He was injured, unemployed, in debt, and his relationship was
On the early morning of June 28, 1997, Allen and Linda argued,
culminating in Linda fleeing from Allen. A high-speed chase ensued, with
Linda calling the police from her car phone and telling them that Allen
was going to kill her. "Oh God, I don't want to die now," Linda screamed
to the 911 operator. Linda described to the operator how her husband was
ramming the back of her car at 85 mph.
The operator told Linda that the police would meet her on the road.
Officer Jacques Gilbert, notified of the chase over police radio,
positioned himself at the entrance to the A&K Food Mart just off the
corner of highway N.C. 55 and Olive Chapel Road. Upon seeing the
officer, Linda jerked her car into the parking lot, rolled down her
window, and yelled, "He's behind me!" Allen drove past the gas station,
but Officer Gilbert drove after him. Linda was left alone, perhaps
thinking that she was now safe.
But Allen eluded, and eventually lost, Officer Gilbert. He would return
to the Food Mart parking lot and shoot Linda to death. Officer Gilbert
was still looking for Allen when he heard another officer call on the
police radio and say, "She's been shot! 400! She's been shot!" Gilbert
soon saw Allen driving in the opposite direction of the Food Mart
parking lot and started chasing him. As he sped past the parking lot, he
Gilbert's (Linda Holman's) motionless body laying in a pool of blood.
Gilbert chased Allen until he reached his home. Other officers soon
joined Gilbert, but Allen held them at bay with a shotgun for two-and-a
half hours. The stand-off ended when Allen shot himself in the stomach
in yet another suicide attempt. Allen was arrested and transported to a
nearby hospital. [www.mail-archive.com] Allen Holman's history of being suicidal dates back to his teens.
Apparently, he has attempted to kill himself at least five times. During
his March 1997 attempt, he had swallowed 50 painkillers and slashed his
wrist with a razor. Allen was diagnosed as being mentally ill and was
involuntarily committed for a time. But when he was released, Allen
refused to take his medication. Reportedly, during his pre-trial
hearings he was sedated.
I never heard about any of ^ that. So far as I knew, he was just a "normal" district member O_O
In fact, about a month or two before he murdered his wife, I ran into him at the Food Lion grocery store where he worked, and he told me how happy he was to buy a Mazda Miata for his wife. He would later chase her as she was driving that Mazda Miata, ramming her bumper with HIS car as she desperately called 911, chanting NMRK the whole time.
It didn't work.
And, apparently, SHE had some sort of *major* multiple personality disorder going on, imagining herself to be a black slave girl who was raped by her massa!
My District leader knew the details but would never share grrrrrrr
And *THESE* were the people who were attending our district meetings, in the (unsafe) environment of someone's *home*, without any of us *members* knowing what was going on.
