Another shooting with a lone gunman, yet eyewitness reports differ.

    We now have the Sikh Temple shooting right on the heels of the "Batman" shooting. We have inital reports saying, "a family member whose parents were victims of the shooting said his parents told him there were “multiple shooters” involved in a “coordinated” attack. So, as before; which is it? Were there four or one? Just like with the "Batman" shooting, eyewitness say 2, cops say 1. Of course, this could not have been staged, because things like that don't happen in America, right?  I mean, this is not weird how it fits perfectly the narrative pushed by the Department of Homeland Security that veterans are a terror threat on a par with Islamic extremists. Just looney old Chris, thinking the government is plotting to take guns away from the sheeple, I mean people. Remember, this has been labled as an act of domestic terrorism by the federal government. Which makes it a lot easier to pass legislation banning weapons, as long as they title the bill, "The Patriot Gun Act 2012".

      Hi Chris. Howzit goin’?

      I am sure you realize you are trying to convince yourself to accept a conclusion based upon unsupported suspicions. You can believe whatever you chose, but if you truly want to reach an intelligent and rational conclusion, you must rely more upon what you know for certain and less upon what you would like to believe.

      It is possible that police interviews have determined that early reports are unsubstantiated. Eyewitnesses are known to be the least reliable forms of evidence. Mix in terror, confusion, and chaos and the result becomes even less credible.

      I am content to let law enforcement do the job they are trained to do. I will suppress my personal conspiracy tendencies until all the facts are disclosed and then I will try to reach conclusions based upon what is known rather than what is built on a foundation of unanswered questions. 

      Many may think differently than I do, but my strategy is what keeps me from becoming “just loony old” Quill.

      No, you are the fool for not giving a second look to a very disturbing situation that has occured and needs to be looked at hard. You need to look at what has slowly been happening in America. This country is a shell of it's former self, people are being conditioned to never question the "official story". Regardless of eyewitness testimony, and evidence. These two incidents (Batman) are having major repercussions across this country.

      People are now openly calling for the TSA to set up at movie theaters everywhere. Now with this incident, you better believe churches will now call for the same.
      Congress is begging Obama to push through major gun law changes and tougher gun control laws, where "stand your ground" will no longer be a right. With these two incidents happening so close together, there is little doubt new gun laws will be passed, and soon.
      This government survives on fear. Remember Rahm Emanuel gained notoriety for declaring his credo: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” You can bet the farm there won't, not with another shooting hot on the heels of another one. We are now one major catastrophe away from having troops on our streets, but I bet that would make you feel safer right?

      Our military veterans are now labeled potential terrorists by DHS!  Despite the fact that a number of different eyewitnesses reported multiple shooters, the narrative of the lone gunman, a disgruntled US Army veteran, has now been fixed. That bothers me. Apparently not you, but to each there own. You want to be a knucklehead, good for you. People need to see that we are less safe than we were 11 years ago, and it is because of occurrence's like these, that we lose more rights and more freedoms; until we have nothing left to fight for.

        I agree with one thing in your otherwise ridiculous comment:

        "This country is a shell of it's former self."

        We can't afford to pay teachers a decent wage, repair roads and bridges, let alone build new ones, keep public libraries open and so forth  thanks to the "billionaires and conservative operatives men behind the curtain" such as the Koch brothers, the Club for Growth, Sheldon Adelson, Dickster Armey and Karl Rove who are manipulating the ignorant TeaTards to their own ends (money in their pockets and Swiss accounts.)

    Despite a vast manhunt, America's most wanted man, John Doe No.2, continues to evade authorities

    Saturday, May 6, 1995 

    "The FBI has issued a warrant for the arrest of a man described as "John Doe #2." John Doe #1 has been identified as Timothy McVeigh and is in custody. A reward of up to $2 million has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for the May 19 bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building. Doe #2 may be armed and should be considered extremely dangerous"


    Has anyone heard of this "Most Wanted" individual in the past decade?

        I agree, a nationwide manhunt grinds to a halt because......?

    Funny there are only conspiracy theories around when the shooter is white.

      "A second gunman is in custody after a shooting at the Army's Fort Hood in Texas in which at least seven people were killed and 12 wounded, reports KCEN-TV of Waco. The report comes about two hours after a first suspect was captured, shortly after gunfire broke out. Authorities say the gunmen were dressed in fatigues, though it's not confirmed whether they are military personnel."

    Statements will always vary somewhat and should be victims and survivors that hold true rather than just the police until a investigation supports or defies said statements. I think there will be a rise in sales of 'security camera's' tongue
