Amen to that!

I'd say in his mind there was a race war; the earlier SC Church shooting was prevalent in his thoughts.

 

It will be interesting to see details about him emerge. From what I've seen:

 

- He had a tendency of not staying at one place too long. If the last TV station where he worked is any indicator (that's where the reporter and photographer he shot also worked), he was volatile in the workplace and prone to fits of rage and anger.

 

- The lawsuit he brought against that station a year ago was "without merit". He perceived slights and prejudice from his co-workers, yet was unable to prove things in court; his sexuality and ethnicity gave no advantage in court in his bias lawsuit. Paranoia, delusions, or both? Or did the station just have better lawyers?

 

- On one hand, he expressed solidarity with the SC Church shooting victims (he supposedly carved their initials in each of the bullets he shot); on the other, he railed against the black community for the way he was treated as a gay man. Conflicted indeed.

 

The race war a sham: simply a justification in his head to blame others for his inability to socialize with with people.

 

I've been around folks like him many times; no matter how kind, how friendly, or how fairly you treat them, every effort on your part is either a failure, a slight, or part of a concerted effort by "everyone" to undermine and embarass them. Powder keg is right; he nailed it. He understood what was happening; he just didn't know why.

 

This case reminds me more of the former Navy Lieutenant who killed the policemen in California...

I don't know that this has been brought up in the press yet. Odd....

Agreed. You're spot-on.

 

At 90 years, he's lived a good life; hopefully he can squeeze-out a couple more.

I've had it happen 3 times now...

 

I do an internet search via Google. I see something posted at www.sporterizing.com. I click the link, and get re-routed to AdultFinder.com; not a member, nor have I been a member.

 

It's only happening with this site, with all of the many searches I perform. It's rather shocking expecting a photo of a Mauser and getting something else entirely.

 

I'm wondering if that's where the blacklisting is coming from. Somehow your domain is getting hijacked?

Looks like you were lucky; it could have been quite worse. It not being your shooting eye is even better. Do you know what happened? Why it detached?

 

For the time being, you can wear an eye patch and tell all sorts of war stories.

 

You Old Salt, you just need a parrot on your shoulder and need to start every sentence with "Arrrrrrrhhh..."
