• The media uses guided imagery to draw out attention away from racial violence. Guided imagery is a common thought reform technique used by cults to control the minds of their victims.
It is also used by Hollywood and Madison Avenue.
Those who would otherwise be perceived as violent criminals are portrayed in television programs, commercials, and cinema in normal and often heroic roles. The real imagery is simply ignored creating a void that is filled with fake, guided imagery that creates a false perception of reality. The outcome is a distorted worldview.
For example, compare the guided fake imagery created by a recent Gillette razor commercial with the reality of the above news story. Who are the aggressors in the Gillette commercial? Who are the aggressors in the news story?

Has your mind been influenced by guided imagery from Hollywood and Madison Avenue?
When watching commercials, television programming, and movies, are you consciously aware of the guided imagery as it distorts your world view?

They were traveling in a 2001 Saturn sedan owned by Stacks’ father.
At about sunrise, Fisher drove the Saturn with Stacks and Truesdale as passengers onto Kirk Air Base Road.
Fisher stopped the car and the three got out.
Fisher fired a handgun killing Stacks, whose body was left on the side of the road.
Authorities said Fisher drove the Saturn toward Kershaw until it had mechanical problems and that’s when he drove the car into a ditch off the southbound lane of Kershaw-Camden Highway, north of Landmark Pentecostal Holiness Church.
Truesdale removed the car key, investigators said Friday in a news release.
After that, Fisher and Truesdale fled on foot before they caught a ride back to Lancaster that afternoon.
Authorities found Fisher at his home Sunday afternoon and he was taken into custody. On Tuesday, investigators caught up with Truesdale at his home.
Both are in the Lancaster County Detention Center.
