On this episode the last words of Attorney Myron May are broadcast to an international audience for the first time. A few days before going on a shooting spree at the Strozier Library on the Florida State University campus in Tallahassee, May calmly and knowledgeably video-recorded his observations and insights regarding what he argued was an organized campaign of electronic harassment, stalking and surveillance he was subject to. Under a sophisticated program of continual harassment, May hoped that an extreme act could draw attention to the plight of targeted individuals. In this vein he challenged elected officials and mainstream media to address the event and issue rather than explain them away as matters of mental illness.
A 2005 graduate of Florida State who went on to complete law school at Texas Tech University, may was an unlikely profile for a mass shooter. However, analysis of police reports and related documentation obtained by the Tallahassee Police Department alongside personal communications from those familiar with May’s temperament and situation suggest that his observations, at the very least, deserve our attention and consideration.
