Why would a critically acclaimed director of such films as Mullholland Falls, The Edge, Along Came a Spider, State of the Union aka XXX and Die Another Day- a James Bond, film dress up as woman on the Hollywood Strip to, as a LAPD official put it, "The defendant was loitering on the sidewalk in drag and then approached an undercover officer in his car and offered to orally copulate him for money,"
55 year old Hollywood director, Lee Tamahori risked it all just to have sex, weird sex, deviant sex, disturbed creepy sex, but sex nonetheless.
He had money, fame, men and women eager to perform any act of sex he desired, for free, in private.
Why would a man do such a thing?
A thrill? Seeking to fulfill a longtime fantasy?
Why do men seduce their own children into their depravity, why do men force themselves viciously on others and why would David Wilson abduct Michelle Bullard? Why is it that some men seem to be powerless to control their deviant sexual urges?
If you look deep enough into Director Tamahori's past you will find some dark corners hidden away that have enabled him to create these fantasies he felt compelled to bring to reality. No matter what the cost, he did what he did because he was confident that it was the right thing to do.
I am sure that the popular director did not just fall out of the sky and land dressed in drag to proposition men. He had somehow grown comfortable in this direction. Little by little he made his way from the closet to the streets of Los Angeles.
Likewise David Wilson, the convicted cold blooded murderer, did not just fall out of the sky and appear at the doorsteps of the trailer that Michelle and her friends had felt comfortable in as they watched a movie late January 1st. Wilson most likely stood on many a doorstep, in front of bedroom windows, as he awaited the courage to enter the home. Who knows if this is the first home he has braved to enter? Who knows how many times he stood outside somewhere wanting to go inside?
To wonder why someone would commit such deviant acts and risk everything they had gained in life is a question for psychologists. We did just that this week and obtained a report about David Wilson's psychological profile that shows a man who was strong willed and in conflict over his strong secretive sexual deviancy.
Perhaps Wilson's twisted sexual life began in childhood. Instances of abuse both physical and sexual inside his family. Substance abuse at early age. An adulthood formed in the prison system of North Carolina. Incestuous relations both physical and mental can wreck a persons chance at a normal life.
Wilson was not used to powerful, seductive women. Not used to them being strong and independent. His women were subjected to aggressive instruction and frightening outbursts of anger. They cowered, forgave and feared speaking out.
Others in his family were like-minded. They were trained by abusive situations and as they became older they were put into prison. Becoming programed the same as David Wilson, perhaps carbon copies.
Why do they do it? Some would say they do it because they have to. I say they do it because society allows them to. David Wilson was allowed to plea down from a cold blooded First Degree Murder of a bar owner in 1975, was sentenced to 40-60 years in prison, served just under 22 years total. He was raised in an environment that was brutal to say the least and yet no one was held accountable.
Normal people do not even think of dressing up like a woman, abducting someone in the middle of the night. Normal people cannot even see the temptation necessary to weigh the risks of getting caught in such criminal deviant acts. However we all have our little secrets though and can easily see what it takes of our will to keep from eating too many cookies, or candy bars, or smoking too much, or even some odd personal solitary behaviors you wouldn't want anyone to know about.
We can grasp why Michelle is still missing, still out there somewhere but I am afraid we will never fully understand why she was taken.
