Back in November I wrote about the strange case of ‘Galen Hallcyon’. Galen is a YouTube blogger with over 15,000 subscribers. In October he posted a Facebook statement claiming to have conversed with Chapel Hill triple murderer Craig Hicks before his crimes. In this statement, he also claims the contents of his interaction with Hicks kept him ‘up at night’ because Hicks revealed himself to be a ‘highly dangerous’ individual motivated by the views of anti-theistic video bloggers. The Chapel Hill murders took place in February and why Galen Hallcyon only decided to share this information eight months later remains unclear – as do most of the details.
Regardless, a vocal gaggle of the usual regressive suspects began amplifying Hallcyon’s words as though they were conclusive proof of Craig Hicks’s hatred towards religious people.
