TIME for Colton Harris Moore

Who would have thought that Colton could have made it to the "inspiring" TIME magazine this week. From one epic journey to the next, Colton seems to be making headway as each new article draws him closer to infamy. Quite honestly, I cant imagine what will happen next, whatever is written about in TIME is certain to find its way into the record books. We will see what the responses are once TIME publishes the next issue.

Colton going Hollywood

If they do make a movie about Colton, They most apparent title would be 'Fly Colton Fly.'

It looks like two anonymous producers are hanging out around Camano Island in-order to catch a sighting of Colton.

"The company claims to have had a film crew in and around Camano Island since last week, with more footage to be shot tomorrow here in the city. (More on that later, hopefully.) The pretty obvious reactions they're getting from locals: "We just want this guy caught." No kidding."

Although Headlines are somewhat dry regarding Colton these days, other than investigators trying to haphazardly pin a shooting to him, people are waiting to follow this one out to the end.

Colton, if your out there, your fans have one request, don't get killed.

Colton Harris-Moore and the Media

​In the past week, two anonymous Hollywood producers have used The Daily Weekly as a carrot with which to lure Barefoot Burglar Colton Harris-Moore out of the upper Washington woods. It hasn't worked.

An open letter to the residents of Camano Island

Dear Residents of Camano Island,

As a so called "fan" of Colton Harris-Moore, I want to first express my deepest sympathy for the anguish that he has put you through. I was listening to the radio today and heard one of the locals on the island discuss the heightened security your community has faced since the increase in theft and crime committed by Colton, and believe that your voice needs to be heard.

As a respectful citizen of the United States, I understand how any kind of threat to a community can cause change in ways that are not always beneficial. The resident commented that due to the threat, many residents are being more cautious with their valuables and that some members of the community are purchasing weapons in order to protect their property. However, as i lament the plight your community is in, I recognize the un-tamable nature of Colton as a dieing trait in our culture.

I am a fan of Colton for many reasons. Anywhere from the tenacity he has to teach himself how to fly a Cessna, although mistakenly forgetting that landing such vehicle requires serious training; to his willingness to overlook the multiple threats he faces and commit to daring need I say extremely dangerous acts and actually succeeding in them. I dare to say that many of the people who have become fans have done so because they understand the same societal 'restrictions' that he is confronting or even escaping.

There is a longing in everybody to experience this sort of empowering and I think that any time people are confronted by a rebel, they tend to project their own personality onto that person. Somwone who has risked it all for that moment of satisfaction, especially when a direct threat exists. Since the beginning of time, man kind has done this, from Jesus to Jesse James, although different types of rebels, the nature of man to go against the established system emboldens even the weakest of characters.

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.”

Members of Camano Island, and the greater Seattle area, especially those of you who have become frustrated by Colton, we express our deepest sympathy and wish all of you the happiest of lives.

Manhunt for Colton

It looks like Colton has been stirring up a lot of trouble lately. We need to recognize that this story will cause many people to have strong feelings either way. Ultimatly, as a criminal, this young thief is under the law. So what is going to happen to him. Does Colton stand a chance against the powers that be in this country?

As many of us are repulsed about this mans discretion, we cannot help but dream of doing the same things he is. In the words of Hellen Keller "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.” This life only offers so many ways to escape, many have dared to live this adventure and had their lives cut short. As an indiscriminate human, the adventurer will entertain dangerous journeys to escape into a new reality. For young Colton, his adventure involves making use of the resources of others inorder to reach his destination. Unfortunaly, this means that his story will only last so long.

Colton Harris Moore

This morning I opened up my local News Paper in Santa Barbara and read a cover story about the 18 year old serial-burglar/ self taught airplane pilot from Island County Washington. This young teenager, has investigators anxious to his whereabouts as he is suspected of 50 robberies in addition to stealing 3 small aircraft. Wow! I knew I needed to do something about this young Catch-Me-If you Can teenager, who has frustrated officers as he has been . One officer describing that at one moment he was there, the next he was gone.

Although Island County Sherriff Mark Brown remarks that Colton is not some young "folk Hero," Harris is going to become a modern Frank Abagnale Jr. at the rate he is going. Please check back for more details as I can gather information regarding this illusive suspect!
