Ok so the suspect IS alive, and the civilian(?) cop who shot him is female and is NOT dead either?

What's with the clusterfark of misinformation all day? Media sure screwed the pooch on this one.

But according to everyone posting in the main page thread, we know this guy is a rabid terrorist and we know everything he's said in the last 30 days to anyone around him and it's been completely anti-American.

Allegedly.

Well THAT part may still turn out to be true, but as far as I'm concerned there's really no difference between a Muslim going nuts over religion and killing people, a white guy going nuts over anti-government sentiment and killing people, an Asian kid going nuts over classmates taunting him and killing people, or whathaveyou. Crazy is crazy.

Are you suggesting that reporters do research and legwork before screaming at the top of their lungs?

Have you no respect for the storied traditions of journalism, sir?

As another thread points out, this guy went to Virginia Tech as well.

Oh, it may very well turn out to be true. But I can't believe that in the first four hours after this happened we would know anything about him to the level of detail that is being posited. So until we have the facts, you're right - crazy is crazy and we don't know why he did what he did.
 
2009-11-05 09:42:29 PM  
I believe the bit about both the suspect and the cop being dead came from law enforcement at one of the earlier press conferences.

Very good point. Being that for the last 4 hours he was dead as was the policeman who shot him, and now they are both alive and that policeman was a policewoman, I think we should all just wait until tomorrow for the facts to get sorted out before trying to make anything out of this all. Bad media information was bad.

Yes, because one internet forum speaks for an entire religion.

Just like Stormfront speaks for the whites in America.

Yes, because your link to forums.islamicawakening.com is a definitive source of news.

Actually, I'd have ask how you found such a site to use as a reference. Are you a turrist?

Federal law enforcement officials say Hasan had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.

The officials say they are still trying to confirm that he was the author.

One of the Web postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates homicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.

"To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause," said the Internet posting. "Scholars have paralled (sic) this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers."

They say an official investigation was not opened.

So what does that prove?
That is evidence of nothing.

Because the military is ridiculously strained by fighting two desert wars.

Muck4doo from the last thread- No, the General just said it was two non-Military-issue handguns, one being semi-auto.

I didn't feel like wading into the other thread, but what I've read here confirms my suspicions that it was an anti-Muslim trollfest.

Carry on.

Relax, it's Texas. His condition is going to go back to dead again soon enough.

I don't care. Seriously quit trying to draw some extraordinary conclusion about how this has anything to do with going to Virginia tech. No one gives a shiat. What you really should be talking about is how the Army allows crazies to be in charge of taking care of soldiers when they return home from seeing friends and loved ones destroyed.

Like I mentioned in the other thread... it has to do with PTSD. The Army and the Department of Defense is under a lot of pressure to get PhDs to theater in order to treat soldiers before problems emerge.

Great a crazy islamic of middle eastern heritage, acting as a psychiatrist from virgina tech, shooting people in Texas, can we get any more unlikely to get a unprejudiced courtmartial??

Just a thought, if they thought more than one shooter is involved, maybe they might want to say they killed the main guy? Get the others to despair a little?

/Looks like a lone nut case to me though.
