It's considered radical and a "militia" group, although on its face it doesn't appear to be. As a group, it has shown up armed and ready to confront at protests. Looking from the outside-in, it appears a recipe for disaster.


I like the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars organizations; regrettably, they are great organizations in declining membership.

The Navy and Marine Corps are the two most convervative branches; they have both been the lone holdouts on the PC movement.


Had he been in another branch, he'd already be drawn-and-quartered.

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....
