Man in custody after firing shots at Texas Capitol

Thursday, January 21, 2010; 2:59 PM

AUSTIN, Texas -- A man fired several shots into the air Thursday while standing on the Texas Capitol's south steps before throwing down his handgun as state troopers closed in and tackled him, the Texas Department of Public Safety said.

Nobody was wounded in the shooting, department spokesman Tom Vinger said. The 24-year-old suspect from the Houston area was taken to the Travis County Jail and faces felony charges of deadly conduct, Vinger said. His name wasn't immediately released.


ZOMG Newsflash *facepalm*

Mexico City resident Veronica Briseno said she and her parents were approaching the Capitol for a tour.....In 2004, the family was in a Madrid subway station when a terrorist exploded a bomb there, Briseno said.

Remind me NOT to go on vacation with these people.

Sheriff's spokesman Roger Wade said a man preliminarily identified as Fausto Cardenas is in custody, but that authorities have not confirmed his name. Officials have said Cardenas is 24 and from the Houston area. A man by that name has been booked into the Travis County Jail on charges of discharging a firearm at individuals, a felony.


We won't confirm his name, but here is where he lives.

What does this have to do with teabaggers? Fark is too predictable.

apostrophes: Only two things come from Texas.

So it should be a simple matter of determining whether or not the shooter has horns.

Lumber Jack Off: texas? it probably was a teabagger.

Nah, pretty sure they're happy for now, what with the election and all. Probably just a nut.

Well, he may well be a teabagger (I mean, armed, crazy, and Texan), but this is probably unrelated to teabaggery.
 
2010-01-21 04:04:42 PM
He didn't even kill a politician.

If you're gonna shoot up the place at least kill someone nobody likes like a politician.

They can't even keep their border sealed. How will they defeat the Zombies, whom will surly Zombify all of Mexico?

Its the people up north, used to long winters and strong warm home who will survive.

So what really happened that day? Let's just for a moment speculate shall we? We have the epileptic seizure around 12:15, p.m. distracting the police making it easier for the shooters to move into their places. The epileptic later vanished, never checking into a hospital. The A-Team gets on the sixth floor of the depository. They were refurbishing the floors that week, which allowed unknown workmen access to the building. They move quickly into position just minutes before the shooting. The spotter on the radio talking to the other two teams has the best overall view, the God spot. B-Team one shooter and one spotter with radio gear and access to the building, moves into the lower floor of the Dal-Tex building. The third team, the C-Team moves into the picket fence behind the Grassy Knoll, where the shooter and the spotter are first spotted by the late Lee Bowers in the watch tower of the rail yard. They have the best position of all. Kennedy is close and on a flat low trajectory. Part of this team is a coordinator who has flashed security credentials at people chasing them out of the parking lot. Probably 2-3 more men are in the crowd on Elm. 10-12 men. Three shooters. Three spotters. The triangulation of fire that Clay Shaw and David Ferrie discussed two months before. They have walked the plaza. They know every inch. They have calibrated their sight. They have practiced on moving targets. They are ready. Kennedy's motorcade makes the turn from Main onto Houston. It's gonna be a turkey shoot. They don't shoot him coming up Houston, which is the easiest shot for a single shot from the Book Depository. They Wait. They wait until he gets in the killing zone, between three rifles. Kennedy makes the final turn from Houston onto Elm, slowing down to some 11 miles an hour. The shooters across Dealy Plaza tighten, taking their aim, waiting for the radio to say "Green! Green!" or "Abort! Abort!". The first shot rings out, sounding like a backfire it misses the car completely. Frame 161, Kennedy stops waiving as he hears something. Connaly's head turns slightly to the right. Frame 193, the second shot hits Kennedy in the throat from the front. Frame 225, the President emerging from behind the road sign, you can see that he's obviously been hit, raising his arms to his throat. The third shot, frame 232, takes Kennedy in the back pulling him downward and forward. Connaly you'll notice shows no signs at all of being hit. He is visibly holding his Stetson, which is impossiable if his wrist has been shattered. Connaly is turning here now, frame 238 the fourth shot. It misses Kennedy and takes Connaly in the back. This is the shot that proves there were two rifles. Connaly yells out "My God! They are going to kill us all." Somewhere around this time another shot that misses the car completely, strikes James Tague down by the underpass. The car brakes. The sixth and fatal shot, frame 313 takes Kennedy in the head from the front. This is the key shot. The President going back and to his left. Shot from the front and right. Totally inconstant with the shot from the Book Depository. So what happens then? Pandemonium.

Damn, if you're gonna fire shots in TX at public officials at least aim at the textbook czars.
