Killer Confesses Through Blog

A trend is developing that allows insight into to the sublime (the third definition) like the world has never known-the motivations and pain of criminal minds and victims are highlighted in weblogs with gripping gory detail, and those listening can't turn the channel.

The latest tragedy capturing the imagination of the blogosphere: Michael Mullen, a thief, a con man, an alcoholic drug abuser, a victim of child molestation, and most recently, an executioner of two sex offenders in an attempt to gain some sort of redemption, with exacting vengeance.

"I am Agent Life! And I alone [am] responsible for the deaths of the two level three pedophiles in Bellingham Washington, and they are not the last to be executed unless things change for the better," posted Mullen on his AOL Journal blog, just before turning himself to the authorities.

Mullen deleted the original post, but not before it was indexed by Technorati, where a screenshot of the post was captured by this Dark Side blogger.

After looking up the addresses of two registered sex offenders in Whatcom County, Oregon, Mullen posed as an FBI agent who was there to protect them. After a twelve pack of beer on the lawn outside the pedophiles' home, Mullen shot each of them once in the head. Read more of the story from this excellently written article from the Seattle Times.

Mullen adds his entry to the list of recent eerie and telling blogs detailing violent episodes. Last spring, a Chinese student's blog led to the identity of his killer.

In the summer, Joseph Edward Duncan III, the pedophile murderer who attracted national media attention during the man hunt that followed the kidnapping of an Iowa brother and sister, wrote explicitly about fighting the demons within himself on his blog.

Indeed, weblogs are offering a real, unnsanitized media for the Internet population to review and think about-whether they want to or not, whether they should or not.
