The media coverage over the death of Robin Williams was very childish. First and foremost, there is no evidence that Robin Williams killed himself. On the other hand, there is plenty of evidence that he is the last person in the world who would do something like that because the organizing principles of his life were hope, optimism and humanity.

Assuming Robin Williams did not kill himself, having studied victims of violence, we know that their greatest fear is to die without acknowledging the truth about their demise. Consequently, if one respects Robin Williams, the person, it is necessary to give him the recognition he deserves rather than to make him something he is not - a poster child for depression, suicide or any other cause.

Leave the man alone. He belongs to the ages, not to John McCain's regime change efforts.

Arizona Senator, John Mccain crossed into Syria without a visa to meet with anti-government fighters in 2013, the prolonged civil war he encouraged has created millions of casualties and refugees and that is not exactly the kind of cause that Robin Williams was prone to champion.

Robin Williams ought be remembered for his humanity, he is not a poster child for suicide, Parkinson's disease, regime change efforts in Syria or any other cause that confirms a particular bias or prejudice.

We rest assured that the people who are responsible for the murder of Robin Williams will spend the rest of their lives looking over their shoulders and/or planning their funerals because sooner or later, justice finds everybody.

Despite his demons, Robin Williams always exuded optimism and a contagious, friendly disposition, and that is the essence of the man who was murdered because he was too human for the sick rejects who routinely target anybody that does not satisfy their politically motivated agenda.

It is simply not plausible to believe that the 63-year old actor who was married to his work and was in the process of giving birth to 4 new babies/movies, killed himself.

On the other hand, it is very easy to think that some of the people who wanted a piece of Robin Williams, were prone to react with anger and hostility if they did not get what they wanted.

Unlike most people, Robin Williams was grounded in reality, in the sense that he did not take his celebrity seriously. In his own words, "to me, the true celebrities are scientists and people doing extraordinary work. To me, Mother Theresa was one of the most amazing women of all time. She didn't have the merchandizing down. But she was the absolute celebrity," and he absolutely meant what he said.

True to serving his vision of celebrity, Robin Williams saw the world as it does not exist and did his utmost to make it better.

In 1990, he testified before Congress and pressed for more long-term efforts to end homelessness, instead of just focusing on “Band-Aid” solutions. In particular, he was an advocte for the Homelessness Prevention and Revitalization Act, which called for more affordable housing, among other measures. "The important debate isn’t about how many people are homeless," Williams said, "but rather, how to help those who are. We must provide comprehensive social services in order to help homeless people live dignified, productive lives."

That is the authentic, Robin Williams. In 2004, a 13 year old girl named Jessica Cole was dying of a brain tumor. Her Make-A-Wish Foundation request to meet one of her heroes, Robin Williams, was rebuffed because he was in the midst of filming David Duchovny's House of D at the time. Robin Williams consequently invited her to visit him on-set. She declined because she was too sick to travel.

Williams, at his own expense, decided to hop on a jet and fly out to North Carolina to visit with Jessica in-person - and keep the entire thing hidden, so that the media wouldn't turn it into a publicity stunt. At first she had difficulty recognizing him due to the effects of her illness, but after he broke out some Mrs. Doubtfire quotes, she quickly figured out it was Robin Williams.

The two spent the day watching football, playing cards, and talking at length. Coincidentally, he received the call informing him that his good friend Christopher Reeve had died while there.

On August 11, 2014, Williams was found unconscious at his residence and was pronounced dead at the scene. The coroner's office ruled the cause of death as suicide by asphyxiation. He obviously didn't know a thing about Robin Williams.

Robin Williams said, “comedy is acting out optimism.” There is no room for suicide in that.

According to Joel McHale, who had recently worked with Williams, "I have never met anybody with a bigger brain than him ... When you talk to Robin you think, 'I have learned more in the last 20 minutes than I ever learned. He is such an open soul and one of the most sensitive and great guys, and I would kill for the man. And I have already offered to kill people for him."

The film A Merry Friggin' Christmas feturing McHale and Williams amongst others, was released by Phase 4 Films on November 7, 2014., the first film starring Robin Williams to be released posthumously, following the actor's death on August 11, 2014.

The point is, Robin Williams was extremely active to the end, and if he stopped being funny, he would have been more dangerous than ever because he would gave gotten serious in an extremely fickle world where serious is routinely targeted and destroyed.

An eternal and brilliant optimist, Robin Williams said, “You will have bad times, but they will always wake you up to the stuff you weren't paying attention to.”

Daily Show writer, tweeted best when he wrote, "Robin Williams always seemed like someone so full of life it was bursting out of him in all directions."

That was not an illusion. It was the truth which was maintained by the conviction that "no matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world." That is what Robin Williams said and in fact believed and those who did not like the changes he proposed were evidently disturbed enough to kill him.

Who did it and why? I have absolutely no idea, but that is not the purpose of telling the truth about Robin Williams. This piece is about him, not them.

Robin Williams was found dead in a bedroom, clothed, slightly suspended in a seated position with a belt around his neck, with one end of it wedged between a closet door frame. This rather overkill effort to create the false impression that Robin Williams had killed himself is amusing. If he had been drowned in the bathtub, conspiracy theorists would have blamed the CIA (joking) but the baffling, has baffled everybody.

Looks like his murderers had a sense of humor but even the movies are more credible than the overkill effort to create the false impression that Robin Williams killed himself.

First and foremost, the superficial, transverse cuts on his inner left wrist indicates that the effort to market the suicide angle was poorly planned.

Experts who understand the contrast of the self-destructive patterns employed by males vs. those of females, ought to understand.

Females tend to be far more tentative, marking the tendency to make shallow, exploratory cuts. Males are usually more decisive. So if opening his wrists was Robin's first idea, he wasn't going about it in typical, suicide fashion.

According to Lt. Keith Boyd, Assistant Chief Deputy Coroner, when Robin Williams was discovered by his personal assistant he was;

"Clothed, in a seated position, unresponsive with a belt secured around his neck with the other end of the belt wedged between the cloths closet door and the door frame. His right shoulder area was touching the door with his body perpendicular to the door and slightly suspended. Mr. Williams at that time was cool to the touch with rigormortis present in his body and livor mortis positioned appropriately for the position he was located in. The inside of Mr. Williams left wrist had several acute, superficial transverse cuts. A pocket knife with a closed blade was located in close proximity to Mr. Williams. The pocket knife was examined and a dry red material was located on the blade of the knife which appeared consistent to dried blood."

Contrary to popular mispercption, Robin Williams was not hanging. He was in a sitting position. If Mr. Williams had positioned his own body the way it was found, the most damage that the belt would have done was to massage the muscles in the back of his neck. It appears that those marks were even more superficial than the ones on his wrist, to believe that Robin Williams had taken hisown life.

The media has not been very helpful with respect to getting to the bottom of anything. On Nightline, they played a clip of some local spokesman answering a question about a note. His answer was "we're not going to discuss the note at this time. A note, I mean. I'm not even going to confirm that we found the note that we found."

It appears that the authorities went through all of the notes that Robin Williams routinely penned and determined that three of them were potentially suicide notes. The three different pieces of paper that Williams had scribbled on during the days leading up to his suicide, are not very precise. One note stated, “I’m done with that” another, “Time to go” and yet another, “No more to come.”

If I was the authorities, I would not confirm the existence of any suicide note, either.

At the time of his death, Robin Williams had conquered his demons. The autopsy proved he did not have any alchohol or drugs in his system and it ignored the fact that the sweetest and the sanest "activists" are more likely to be murdered than to commit suicide.

The other guy who 'hung himself with a belt' was Aaron Schwartz, the co-founder of the social news site Reddit. His focus was civic awareness and activism and it appears that his demand to hold Congress accountable by spreading the word regarding the need for government reform, induced death by belt.

In the context of their lives and their extraordinary contributions to society, it is more reasonable to assume that some people are "suicided", to use the popular vernacular of conspiracy theorists, and in a society where less and less computes, we should not ridicule the obvious, simply because it does not conform to our peculiar prejudices.

Robin Williams said, "you have heaven in front of you especially if you have children. That's how precious that is" and his daughter Zelda consequently deserves the final word: "Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I've ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We'll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again."
