I am Sorry for your Loss Mr. Chambers.

I noticed that a man named Paul Chambers claiming to have known officer Mobilia posted some rather emotional comments to Portland IMC. I think that he might place some blame on the IMC's that Andy posted his confession on.
Well I would like to tell Mr. Chambers that I am sorry for his loss. The act's committed by Andy McCrae were just wrong! I do not think that we should treat Mr. Chambers with any disrespect, as one poster to Portland IMC did. Mr. chambers is probably a little shaken from the death of his friend

I would also like to make it clear that I agree with some of what Andy said in his post; I do not think this makes me evil. Corporations do have too much power and that power needs to be removed unless we would like to continue pretending that we live in a democracy.
I don't think that the corporate immunity thing will work as a defense, and is really just one more sign that Andy's insane. The key to judicial monopoly is to have a lot of money; from what I can gather Andy does not meet this criteria. Any ways he killed a cop. He's going away for life, how ever long that may be.
I think in the end this whole incident leads to a question of tactics. Most people, including most of the IMC community feel that assassination is not a means of solving the world's problems.
One more thing to those of you out there that are stupid enough to murder others to advance your own goals; please make sure that the people your killing deserve it. A good number of police are evil assholes, but by assuming that all cops are bad is the same as assuming all progressives/anarchists/protesters etc. are terrorists.
