The thing I like about this article is that he exploits murder victims for political purposes while saying how grotesque it is to do so.

It's like how every time someone says a politician is trying to score political points, they're trying to score political points by bringing it up.

Can we all just start our own little island nation to get away from people? It'd be great.

Stush while the island you are on is pretty big it is in fact a nation so uh

You're already living the dream.

Perhaps you'd prefer moving to New Zealand? It's much smaller.

Details emerge about suspect

As authorities investigated the deadly shooting, across the country details began to emerge about the suspect.
The FBI said it identified Alexis using fingerprints and ID.

He was in the Navy's ready reserve, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus told CNN. In the past, he was an enlisted petty officer working on electrical systems. He was discharged from the Navy following a "pattern of misconduct," a U.S. defense official said. The military is reviewing his files.

The suspected shooter had an active ID and entered the base legally, according to a federal law enforcement official.

Outside Fort Worth, Texas, friend Michael Ritrovato said Alexis had recently been frustrated with the civilian contractor about a payment issue. But Ritrovato said his friend never showed signs of aggressiveness or violence, though he played a lot of shooting video games online.

"It's incredible that this is all happening, because he was a very good-natured guy," Ritrovato said. "It seemed like he wanted to get more out of life."

In Seattle, police said they arrested Alexis in 2004 for shooting out the tires of another man's vehicle in what Alexis later told detectives was an anger-fueled "blackout."

Pretty much no telling information about why in god's name he would murder 12 people, besides this mention of a "blackout" episode. I'm guessing it was rage-fueled and largely unplanned, beyond "kill people at the Naval Sea Command."

Fucked up.

Other news stories mentioned he was the conspiracy theory type, the "The MAN'S holding me back" type and that he suffered from paranoia and PTSD (which he was being actively treated for).

I think yeah, it was probably unplanned and that maybe his mental issues were somewhat worse than his doctors thought.

The occasional mass murder is just the essential cost of freedom at this point, really.

Again (for the third? time), split because I'll be fucking damned if we're going to have a thread were we lump every one of these tragedies together.
