On Monday, I wrote a piece for The Spectator Australia about my wonderful friend Marc Angelucci’s murder.
Marc was a high-profile lawyer, Vice President and Board Member of the National Coalition for Men (NCFM) and long-time President and Founder of the Los Angeles Chapter of NCFM.
He lived on a shoestring so that he could donate many millions of dollars of his own time to mostly voluntary work on behalf of real, true equality, which, by definition, applies equally to all human beings regardless of gender.
Marc was fatally shot at his own front door on Saturday July 11 just before 4pm.
I included in the story a detail which I can’t stop thinking about.
A deliveryman had arrived at Marc’s door with a package. One of his guests said, ‘I can take that to Marc’.
The man said no, Marc had to sign for it himself.
Marc went to the door.
The guest heard shots being fired.
When the guest got back to the door, a white convertible was driving away.
Also on Monday, when this piece was published, a gunman shot the husband and son of a federal judge in New Jersey.
The suspect was reported to be dressed as a FedEx delivery driver. He showed up on Judge Esther Salas’ doorstep in North Brunswick.
Daniel Anderl, 20, was Judge Esther’s only child. He was home from college. He was shot through the heart.
His father, criminal-defence lawyer Mark Anderl, is in critical condition after surgery.
Salas’ caseload has included Jeffrey Epstein. She was in the basement and was unharmed.
How many times have any of us been told that someone in our household needs to go to the door themselves to sign for a package?
If a hitman was looking for an opportunity to arrive on someone’s doorstep, and ensure someone specific stood just inches from them, has there ever been such a reliable way to make that occur?
Anyone with a profile needs to think twice.
If the selfish, rampant, unbridled fury of social media begins to arrive knocking at our homes, we will need to seriously rethink our definition of home security.
Makes me feel sick to the stomach.
Interestingly, today, Daily Beast reports that Roy Den Hollander, 72, has emerged as a suspect in the Salas’ North Brunswick shootings. He’s believed to be a lawyer and men’s rights activist who was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound two hours after the incident.
He too had a challenge to the military’s male-only draft, which was pending before US District Court of New Jersey Judge Esther Salas.
Marc too had challenged the military draft, which was pending.
Hollander describes himself on his website as an “anti-feminist”.
Actually, if it’s found that he did indeed carry out the shootings at Salas’ home, he is a violent killer who decided to end the lives of other human beings.
Labelling someone an “incel” is a cop-out.
How utterly heartbreaking it is that we have arrived at a point in society where fighting for men’s rights, father’s rights and all human rights equally, has become so unacceptable and dangerous that the killing of a high-profile lawyer may be swept under the carpet purely because he was not on Team Female Supremacy.
Men’s rights are human rights – and every human being has the right not to be gunned down at their own front door.
