I wondered why kevin did not kill himself or kill a few cops when they arrested him. It looks like he pulled his gun but the pigs tasered him before he had a chance to use it.
kevin sent this letter by snail mail to one of his friends who emailed it out a long time ago right after kevin got arrested. In the letter kevin says he is ok execpt for one taser burn.
I had quit using the account the email was sent to and didn't read the email until today.
From: **************** ************************
I have just received in the mail a hand-written, pencil message signed "Kevin" with a return address:
"Kevin Walsh, c/o
I am transcribing the message below. I am also sending a copy to Kevin's regular e-mail, just in case this hand-written message is not authentic. I have no reason to doubt it, however. I have not received any e-mail from Kevin for several days and this message might explain that somewhat unusual silence.
Anyone closer than I am to the Mesa, AZ, facility or to Kevin's home might want to check this out and, if anyone can do so, please sent me a note on what you find out. I would appreciate it.
I was ambushed by a SWAT team yesterday. I tried to draw my weapon to end my own life, but they were on me too fast, and I was unable to do so. I sustained a taser burn but no other injuries.
I was told the Secret Service ordered me to be psychiatrically evaluated for involuntary committal, and that this was the reason for my arrest. It seems I am likely to spend the rest of my life either as a prisoner or as a mental patient. I am being confined at a mental hospital for evaluation. Probably I won't be here more than a few days before I'm transfered. I will write again from my new location if they allow it. Please tell my e-mail correspondents what has happened, particularly ********@*******.com and ********@*******.com.
[I was tasered, but the taser seemed to have little effect on me. One of the police said that it caused my hair to stand up, and I remember feeling a strange sensation when struck, but I was in no way incapacitated, and I continued to struggle for at least a couple minutes after the taser darts hit me. My inability to draw my pistol was due to sheer physical force. Initially two cops were holding back my arm, and eventually about six cops were grappling with me. Eventually I was worn out by sheer force of numbers and collapsed from exhaustion. It was only then that they were able to handcuff me, leg shackle me, and remove my pistol. The entire struggle lasted about five minutes. --Kevin Walsh]
