hi friends how are you today question Mark
my name is Bailey Syrian and today is Monday
which means it’s murder Mystery and Makeup Monday
okay I hope you guys are having a wonderful day so far
so if you’re new here
every Monday I sit down
I talk about a true crime case
that’s been heavy on my noggin
and I do my makeup at the same time
it doesn’t really make sense
but like we have already made it this far
this train isn’t stopping anytime soon baby
if you’re interested in true crime
and you like makeup
I would highly suggest you subscribe
so I actually already had today’s story
like planned out
what I originally want to do
but I saw one of you guys
comments on my YouTube video for last week
and it said I’m gonna post it up here
so cause I can’t say this username here by
you know I’m not good at names
we all know this
but she said ted Kaczynski
the Unabomber
can you talk about this story
and I was like oh my God
I completely forgot about the unibomber
so let’s talk about it
Theodore Kazinsky
he was born in Chicago of 1942
to a working class family of Polish ancestry
he had a younger brother named David
who would later become
involved in his older sibling’s arrest
and we’ll get to that
so people who attended school with Ted
noted that he was a loner
who excelled academically
and I’m laughing
because it’s just like
he’s a loner who excelled
now growing up Ted
we’re gonna call him Ted
not Theodore
he was very very smart
he skipped 6th grade
and it said around this time
is when he really started to get socially awkward
and it really started to affect him
his personality as well
so he skipped 6th grade
and then he just started getting picked on a lot
because he’s quote
unquote weird
he was very smart
and he didn’t have any friends
so let’s be honest
really easy target for middle schoolers
especially little assholes
is what I call him
many people would describe him as a shy kid
and would become unresponsive
if he was ever pressured into a social situation
so throughout high school
Ted was ahead of his classmates
he was placed in more advanced math classes
and he soon mastered math
like he killed it in math numbers
so then Ted actually skipped 11th grade
and then he actually finished high school
by attending summer school
and he graduated at the age of 15
now Ted he was one of his schools
5 National Merit finalists
and he was encouraged to apply at Harvard
at the age of 16
in 1958 he entered Harvard on a scholarship
which is like
wow amazing
I mean that’s a huge achievement
his family were so proud of him
he seemed a little off
he seemed a little socially awkward
but he could go so far
he had a lot of potential to do great things
you know and it’s funny
because he went to Harvard before he
he even got his driver’s license
I mean hilarious
wow that’s so funny Bailey
so while at college
that’s the time to really make some friends
and socialize
and experiment
I don’t know what they do at Harvard
but it’s probably
a Bougier version of Zach
but while Ted was attending Harvard
he really didn’t make any friends
but he continued to perform very
very well academically
now when he was at Harvard
this is when he participated in a controversial study
led by psychologist
Henry Murray
now in this experiment
Subjects were asked to write an essay
on their personal philosophies
later while hooked up to electrodes
the study subjects were subjected to
hours of insults and personal attacks
they wanted to measure if it had an effect on the brain
or if the brain responded in some kind of way
obviously it goes
a lot deeper than that
but the essays were used as a basis for the insults
and it’s believed that Ted
participated in this experiment
for more than 200 hours
lasting for 3 years
beginning in 1959
his mental and emotional well being suffered
as a result
now some sources
have suggested that this experiment
were part of Project MKULTRA
the cia’s research into mind control
it has also been suggested
that this experience may have motivated ted’s
criminal activity activities
which we can save mkultra for another day
working on that one
okay so in 1962
Ted actually graduated from Harvard
with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics
and then in 1964
he would earn his master’s degree
in 1967 he would earn his doctorates
I don’t know
what you’re thinking
but what I’m thinking
is ted is one
smart cookie
which side note
have any of you guys noticed
how the killers
and the stories
that we talk about here
they are always very smart
well not always
there’s a lot of dummies
I’m sure there’s some kind of case study done right
I don’t know
okay anyways
so at the young age of just 25 years old
Ted had completed his education
and then he became the youngest assistant professor
in the history of
University of
California at Berkeley
when he was hired to teach
undergraduate geometry
and calculus
in the fall of 1967
25 nuts now
just 2 years later
he actually
ended up resigning
and he never really gave an explanation
as to why he did so
but he did so
after leaving Berkeley
he actually
moved back to Illinois
to live with his mom
and I think
his younger brother
was still there
at the time
and he was there for
about 2 years
before he decided
to move out
and to live in a cabin
that he had built
in the woods
outside of Lincoln
Montana now
this was in 1971
moving to this cabin
would allow him to live
a simple life
with little money
and without
or without running water
so it was gonna get like
real stinky
in there you know
he wanted to
live like this
and go after
your goals in life
so Ted was really
hoping to live
self sufficient
by teaching
himself survival
skills such as
like hunting
and organic farming
and received
some financial support
from his family as well
he used an old bicycle
to get around
and get into town
and whatnot
and he also
would volunteer
at a local library
which he would
visit often
like all the time
to read classic works
in their original languages
show off other
local residents
who in the area
said that his lifestyle
wasn’t necessarily unusual
in that area
and people just
really didn’t
think twice
about it and like
what he was doing
living off the grid
so Ted is out there
just living
in his cabin
and this was
in 1975 and
and he started to grow
more and more
upset by the
real estate
and industrial
in the area
around his cabin
so like there was
just free land
surrounding him
and he would say
like beautiful hills
just lots of green
it was open
it was beautiful
it was fresh
clean air and then
slowly they were
starting to
destroy the land
they were starting to
build just crap
it was just really
getting to Ted
so Ted had this
great idea like
I’m gonna vandalize
these construction sites
in the Lincoln area
okay if I like
destroy them
spray paint them
whatever I’m
gonna sabotage
this development
and then they’ll stop
so he would go out at night
when nobody was there
and he would
paint on them
he would try his best
to just destroy it
as best as he could
and this is
where things
just kind of
really began
for Ted so Ted
realized that
trying to destroy
the the construction
or whatever
it really wasn’t working
he had to go
after the big guys
so he decided
to make his own bombs
because that’s all of our
first thoughts
he’s like I’m
going to make
these bombs
and then mail them to people
the people who are responsible
for destroying the land
he would make these bombs
and then he would send them through either the
US Postal Service
or sometimes
he would occasionally hand deliver the actual package
or the mail bomb himself
so these bombs lasted over a period of 17 years
and it started in 1978
his first target was Northwestern University
professor of engineering Buckley
krist I think
is his last name
now I guess
the package was left outside of his building
like out in the parking lot
and it had his name on it
somebody picked it up and handed it to Buckley
right away this professor
he was concerned
because he knew that this package wasn’t his
and it was super suspicious
so he calls up the security guard
and he lets them know
this is weird
you open it
so the security guard opens up the package
and this bomb exploded
it was inside of the package
and it wasn’t like
to its fullest and greatest potential
luckily the security guard only suffered a hand injury
but that was the first one
now it’s unclear why
Ted targeted Buckley
ted is back in Illinois
and he’s working with his father and his brother
and shortly after
Ted actually got fired from that job
for insulting a lady supervisor
who he like
briefly had a romantic relationship with
he was bitter that it didn’t work out
so there was no link happening to Ted
from that first bomb
it was so random
and there was yeah
nobody knew where the hell that came from and why
so then in 1979
a bomb was placed in the cargo hold
American Airlines Flight 444
which was flying from Chicago to Washington DC
now the bomb had a faulty timing mechanism
which prevented the bomb from exploding
but it released smoke
which forced an emergency landing
so they were like
up in the air
and smoke started coming up
dodged a bullet there right
so once the plane landed
they were able to get the bomb off of the plane
everyone was fine
thank god right
so they’re able to look at this bomb
and they realized
if the bomb had worked
it would have completely obliterated the bomb
the plane the plane
so they got so lucky
and because bombing an airliner is a federal crime
the FBI became involved
okay so in these bombs he was making
sorry I was trying to get this open
in these bombs he was making
he would always leave some kind of clue
the first clue
was like a metal plate
and stamped with the initials FC
hidden somewhere
and usually it was like
in the pipe and cap
and he did this
in almost every single bomb
so they knew it was like
the same person
doing it over
and over again
another clue
included a note
left in a bomb
that did not go off
and it read
woo it works
I told you it would
RV end quote
that was a quote
the FBI was trying to profile
who they think this person is
so they came up with this
bomber person
had a theme of
like nature
trees and wood
in his crimes
Ted would often include bits of tree
branch and bark
in his bombs
so their FBI is like
yeah nature
he’s a nature guy
in December of 1985
there was a bomb
that was sent to Sacramento
computer store owner
Hugh scrutin
hue and it exploded
cause he opened it
and it exploded
and it actually led to his death
the bomb itself
was filled with nails
and splinters
so when he opened it up
and it exploded
yeah ouch now
this would be the first fatality
caused by these bombs
there had been no
deaths yet okay
so let’s just go over the table of bombings
because there’s a lot
and of course
if I go through one by one
with all these stories
let’s be real
we’re all gonna get very confused
so I will just briefly
kind of touch on it
so May 25th
1978 we have
Terry Marker
who was a university police officer
and the injuries were just minor cuts and burns
then we have May 9th 1979
we have John Harris
he was a graduate student student
he was a graduate student
and he only got
minor cuts and burns
November 15th
1979 we have that
American Airlines flight
had 12 passengers
luckily it was just non lethal smoke
then June 10th
1980 we have Percy Wood
and he was the president of United Airlines
he got severe cuts and burns
over most of his body and face
October 8th 1981
the bomb went off early
so luckily it hurt nobody
may 5th 1982
we have Janet Smith
and she was a
university secretary
severe burns to her hands
July 2nd 1982
we have Dio Jennes
he’s an engineering professor
he had severe burns
and wounds on his hands
and his face
may 15th 1985
we have John Hauser
he was a graduate student
he lost 4 fingers
severed artery in his right arm
and he lost part
of his vision
in his left eye
June 13th 1985
he went after an airline company
the bomb went off early
so nobody was hurt
November 15
1985 we have
James McConnell
who was a psychology professor
and Nicholas
who was a research assistant
they were both together
at this time
the bomb went off
one of them
has temporary
hearing loss
December 11th 1985
Hugh Scrutin
which was the computer
store owner
that was the
first death
February 20th 1987
Gary Wright
he was a computer
store owner
as well severe
nerve damage
to the left arm
June 22 1993
we have Charles Epstein
he had severe damage
to both eardrums
with some hearing loss
and he also lost 3 fingers
June 24th 1993
David last name Gletner
I don’t know
you guys fuck
he lost his complete right hand
December 10th 1994
Thomas he died
and he was an advertising executive
April 24th 1995
we have Gilbert
Brent Murray
and he was a timber
industry lobbyist
and he also died
so that is the complete list
I was trying my best to
like keep that
kind of simple
but I feel like
I made it really confusing
I’m really trying
my best here
and that’s all I can do
now at this point
the FBI still had no idea
who the Una bomber was
the FBI called
the ongoing investigation UNA bomb
for university
and airline bomber
and then the
media took that
and they dubbed
the attacker
the UNA Bomber
and that’s how he got his name
still ted’s
identity was
was unknown to authorities
now of course
that all changed when Ted
sent his now
infamous manifesto
to the media
and this happened
in the summer of 1995
ted sent letters
demanding that his
essay entitled
industrial Society
and Its Future
be published
he sent these letters
to different
media companies
who ran newspapers
magazines whatever
and said you need to post this
or more people are
going to get hurt
naturally these
people are kind of torn
what do we do
do we do what he says
or do we ignore it
an FBI director
agreed that
the manifesto
should be published
now this was a very controversial decision
but they decided to do it
out of concern for
public safety
and mainly mainly
they were really
hoping that
somebody out there
once it got published
could identify
who this person was
because it wasn’t just like
any other writing
it was they’re just
like our words
being used that
somebody had to recognize
somebody would know
in this manifesto
Ted would go on to argue
that technology
and industrialized
society destroys
human freedom
because it needs to
regulate human
behavior closely
in order to function
so Ted wrote
the manifesto
on a typewriter
without italics
he capitalizes
entire words
to show emphasis
and he always
refers to himself
as either we or FC
FC stood for
Freedom Club
though there’s
absolutely no evidence
that he worked
with anybody else
just fucking
him by himself
now of course
you can read
the manifesto
it’s quite long
but I’m gonna
try my best
and summarize it
so this is gonna be good
ted ted ted
he writes that
technology has had
a destabilizing
effect on society
has made life
and has caused widespread
psychological suffering
he’s got some points
he’s got some points
he argues that
most people
spend their time
engaged in useless pursuits
because of technological advances
he calls these
surrogate activities
where people
strive towards
artificial goals
including scientific work
consumption of
and following
sports teams
and I must say
I read this
like go on now
he predicts
the further
advances will lead
to extensive
human genetic
and that human beings
will be adjusted
to meet the needs
of social systems
rather than vice versa
he calls for
a return to quote
wild nature
blah blah blah
blah blah now
he was calling for
a revolution
against technology
and it may be
possible but
for the most part
his manifesto
was all about
how technology
was ruining
society and
after reading that
because in my mind
this is a side note
has nothing to do
with Ted but
I always thought
as the unibomber
was just like
reckless and like
killing just
random people
because he thought it was fun
I read this
the manifesto thing
and I was like
dude this guy
look he had a
great point
he had such a
great point
and look where
where we are
today we are
completely controlled
by the Internet
by TV by media
these companies
are taking all of
our data selling it
so they can
control us with it
that’s a whole
another video
in itself and
if you’re not
worried about that
then that’s
that’s a big problem
it’s quite scary
anyways but
what he was
getting at is that
this needs to
be taken down
this system
needs to be taken down
and I was like
wow but look
the way he went about it
bombing people
obviously not
smart would not
suggest that
and I do not
stand by that
of course I’m not
here for that
but he actually
is making some
great points now
the feedback
of this manifesto
was actually
kind of good
you know not
everybody understood
quite what Ted
was getting at
kind of like
flew completely
over their head
but there was a lot
of a lot of
people who did
agree with what
he was saying
and there were
several essays
that were written
and published
in support of
his ideas of course
they did not
stand by what
he was doing
like harming
people in 1980
the FBI worked
with a profiler
to help like
identify the
Unabomber so
when they issue a
psychological profile
they create
who they think
this guy or girl is
and they describe
the offender
as a man with
above average
they believed
he was holding
an academic degree
in hard sciences
but this psychology
based profile
was discarded in 1983
they thought
no this guy
probably works like
for the airline
company now
before the Unabombers
manifesto went live
ted’s younger brother
David Kazinsky
was encouraged
by his wife
to follow up
on the suspicions
that Ted was
the Unabomber
ted’s younger brother
didn’t want to
fully believe
that the Unabomber
was his brother
but in the back
of his mind
he was thinking
you know what
Ted really hated
like technology
and where he thought
this was all
going and made
him very upset
but Ted has
never showed any signs
of aggression
there’s no way
this is him
like it was
just kind of a
silly thought
but david’s
wife who had
never met Ted
she only like
heard about
him and read
some of his
writings from
her husband
who was the
younger brother
she was like
you have to read this
this manifesto
he told his
wife okay sure
I’ll read it
only just to
prove to you
that this isn’t him
there’s no way
David the younger
brother and Ted
they weren’t
really speaking
at that time
the reason being
is because Ted
had disconnected
from everyone
and everything
it wasn’t anything personal
it’s just what
ted always wanted
so they just
kind of let him
be out there
anyways so David
the younger brother
is like okay lady
to his wife
I’m gonna read
this manifesto
and I’m just gonna
prove to you
it’s not him
like this is
just not him
but I’ll read it
so he reads
the manifesto
and he’s like
oh shit there’s
just a couple
phrases that
Ted had used
once before
in a couple
letters of course
david’s like
fuck David goes
through the garage
and he’s looking
for letters
written by Ted
dating back to 1970
and Ted had
sent letters
to newspapers
to protest the
abuse of technology
using phrases
similar to the ones
in the manifesto
it’s fucking Ted
he hires a private
David then went on
to hire attorney
to organize
the evidence
that was acquired
by the private
and make contact
with the FBI
the reason he was
kind of like
going around
the situation
is because if he
went to the FBI
he would get
bombarded by
the news media
and just really
lose control of the
the situation
plus David wanted to protect
his brother
from the danger
he feared like
a very violent outcome
it was also
his brother
and he felt
1t of guilt
David went to their
mother and said
I think it’s Ted
and kind of
showed her all
the evidence
of why he was
thinking this way
and their mother
well yeah their
mother said
oh David please
don’t tell anybody
and David told
his mom like
I’m sorry I already
I already did
once the FBI
was contacted
they showed them
the comparison
of the manifesto
on the writings
now based off of this
they were allowed to get a
search warrant
which would
allow them to
go and search
the unabomber’s
place the FBI
then contacted
David and David
asked the FBI to
please keep
this a secret
don’t tell anybody
I told you don’t
tell anybody
about me police
but of course
the information
was leaked it
was put out
there on CBS
News the media
cut onto it
and it completely
just blew up
so then April 3rd
1996 they got a
search warrant
to go into ted’s cabin
and they also got
the location
of the cabin
they got helicopters out there
surrounding the area
they went in
and they got him
and there is
where they found Ted
in a very disheveled
state and he was
surrounded by
bomb making
tools and parts
there was also a
like one live bomb
ready for mailing
he was arrested
and he was taken
in the media
played the arrest
like everywhere
so later that
month he was
indicted by
federal grand jury
on 10 counts
of illegally
mailing and
using bombs
he also was
being charged
with 3 counts
of murder now
his attorneys
wanted him to
enter an insanity plea
but Ted refused
and instead
just pleaded guilty
to all charges
the media was
calling him
crazy and once
you get that
crazy title
by the media
that’s when
people stop
taking you seriously
and he didn’t
want to say
that he was
crazy he’s like
I’m not crazy
I’m not insane
I’m well educated
my IQ was very high
I’m not going
to consider
myself insane
he was sentenced to 8
life sentences
with no chance
of parole at
the Supermac
Security Prison
in Florence
Colorado and that’s
where he remains
to this day
for some odd reason
I thought he had
died by now
but he hasn’t
he’s still there
so David the younger
brother of Ted
who turned him
in he wrote
a memoir called
every Last Tie
The Story of
the Unabomber
and His Family
which talks
about david’s
with his brother
and his parents
and the difficult
decision that David
and his wife
faced when they
came to suspect
Ted was the
Unabomber says
he has tried to
reach out to Ted
he has wrote him
many letters
at least one
a month and
he has yet to
get a response
this was back
in 2015 ted
did not want to believe
his brother
turned him in
and when he
found out it was
true it was
to him ted said
my brother would
never turn me
in he loves
me end quote
and then when
it was true
Ted just has not
never spoke
to him again
the latest I
could find was 2015
so it may have
changed think
it was 2016
ted actually
wrote a letter
to the media
saying I’m ready
to talk and I
would love to
tell my side
of the story
and how I’m not
crazy but nobody
really cared
they were like
sorry fool like
you are crazy
I was watching
a couple of
interviews with
David ted’s
brother and
you can really
see how the
guilt he felt
for turning
his brother in
like they were
such a loving and
close family
and then he had to
turn on him
which sucks
like that’s
your only sibling
and that’s your
only family
member yeah
but he had to do it
I mean he had to
that is the
story about
The Unabomber
pretty much
the Unabomber
wanted an anti
tech revolution
and it’s interesting
because I always
thought again
that The Unabomber
was this was
this person
who was targeting
innocent people
which he did
but he had great points
he went about it
the wrong way
if he didn’t
kill people
he probably
could have done
some really
great things
with his mind
cause he’s a
very smart man
let me know
your thoughts
down below I hope
that you have
a wonderful day
today you make
good choices
thank you so much
for hanging
out with me
today other than
that I hope
you have a very
wonderful day
today you make
good choices
and I’ll be
see you guys later bye
