By Greg Peppers

The gunman who was shot and killed during the hostage siege at the Discovery Channel had a history of protesting the building.

43 year old James Jay Lee was arrested in February of 2008 outside the Discovery Channel building on charges of littering and disorderly conduct. The littering charge may have stemmed from Lee reportedly having thrown money at people on the street so they would gather around his protest site on Georgia Avenue. Lee was reportedly upset about the programming on the Discovery Channel and he's listed as the founder of an organization known as Save the Planet Protest.

On his MySpace page, Lee called for the creation of programs that would find solutions to stopping all immigration pollution and the anchor baby filth that follows that. He'd also claimed that the Discovery channel's programming actually causes harm to the government. When he was arrested two years ago he listed a homeless shelter in Silver Spring as his address.
