He just sounds too coherent, to be a run of the mill schizophrenic. Something weird is going on here.

You don't kill a 3 month old child if you're trying to stop child sex trafficking. This guy is either completely off his rocker or there's something else involved. Either way the only way he's ever going to be leaving a correctional facility is in a box.

Killing a 3 mo to stop child sex trafficking isn't normal, but on meth it is.

/Dude claimed he was doing meth
//But cops can only prove abuse steroids
///Still, something broke loose in his head

He was hunting, something?  But the specific address? Talking to god? Someone was whispering in his ear.

Its easy to say someone was crazy.

Bootleg: Killing a 3 mo to stop child sex trafficking isn't normal, but on meth it is.


Killing a 3 month old AND shooting an 11-year old and leaving her to die.

Even if there was an "Amber" he's killing more people than he could potentially have saved.
 
2021-09-09 11:59:05 PM  
It's Qanon shiat. They can read whatever they want into the intentionally vague messages and they're acting on it. Same thing with the dude who killed his two kids in Mexico and the guy who went to shoot up comet pizza.

IIRC shooter is an ex-Marine and private security guard who was licensed to carry a firearm. I suppose he was a responsible gun owner, until he wasn't

As I've said before on this particular situation, I don't normally support the death penalty but this sort of situation is why I don't believe it should be outright ended.

That said I don't say to end his life to punish him, I say to do it to permanently protect the rest of us from him, same as any other species would be put down if they killed for literally no reason.

Death is usually just a side effect of a good cruel and unusual punishment.  There's a reason they're banned in the bill of rights.

On the other hand, watch Dagon and tell me that doesn't seem like a fitting punishment.
 
2021-09-10 12:41:20 AM  
Qanon is a terror organized.  The DOJ needs to start using some of those scary Patriot Act laws to break up this terror network. Send the people behind this to Gitmo.

I don't see how that could happen.

I mean, you'd need, like, preposterously-funded and energetically-staffed streams of bizarre twisted hypnotic manipulative hate-inducement propaganda, running 24-7-365 in every known mass-communication medium, for like a generation or two.

Buuuut, I doubt that exists.

I've met a couple of schizophrenics as clients while working on mortgages in South Florida. They're paranoid, delusional, often make things up or remember things that never happened. Often they are totally divorced from reality.

I met a medicated one the other day who insists he gave me information that he did not and is now calling me and asking if he can trust the lender he's working with. The company is taking him at his word and they keep calling me asking about it.

A few months ago, I met an unmedicated one who insisted his condo was rigged with shotgun booby traps that would decapitate me if I didn't do everything just right. He said he had worked as a SEAL at Area 51 (an Air Force facility). He thought Hillary Clinton and Oprah Winfrey were following him by using a chip in his head. WTF.

The weird thing is they're totally coherent when it comes to their finances but then they immediately run off the rails and start talking about something unrelated.

These folks are often living in a different universe.

Aye. Polk county residents, by chance?

-though the panhandle and inland off the space coast is nearly as bad....

Basically in FL if you live far inland (or panhandle Floribama) you are a legit cattle Cracker/farmer, a crazed redneck, or a Swamp Person. And the coasts are lousy with old retired republicans.

The nature is AMAZING down here, the humans are mostly crazy. (With or without meth/synthetic weed add-ons.)

Shakin_Haitian: He was on a mission from god.


Why is it all the terrorists think God needs their help?

It's like god can make the universe, destroy any star with a supernova, and they think they need to kill or blow shiat up in God's "name".

I suspect they have no respect for god/allah/jehovah if they think god needs their help.

Riley's girlfriend told investigators that he recently claimed that he could speak "directly to God," Judd said.


Anytime anyone claims to speak to and/or hear directly from God it never ends well.  They're either dangerously insane or a con artist.

/ or possibly trying to build a case for an insanity plea

No...this is all in Broward County.

I knew a guy in college (UNF in Jacksonville) who was from I think Puerto Rico. His roommate was off his meds and stabbed the guy to death back in the mid-2000s.

Three days ago the local sheriff suggested 'It would have been nice if would have come out with a gun,' perhaps as an excuse to act as judge, jury, and executioner.

Not quite accurate. I recall so Q'ers (I think they tried to kill their kids) saying that death to a kid saved them from the evil sex/adrenal thing the Democrats would do to the kid. It's farrrked up.

This guy is a rabid dog.  Nothing more.  There are only two paths here: a) a cage or b) sleepy time.  It's unfortunate, but when serious, unchecked psychiatric disorder meets stuff like Q, corrupt religion, MAGA-like rhetoric, etc., then things are bound to get bad in some manner.  This guy is the extreme.

Executing someone who is severely mentally ill is immoral, IMHO, but his actions are so appalling he should get life without parole regardless of any improvement to his mental health.

/I know, my position is logically inconsistent
 
2021-09-10 5:58:49 AM  
This is the stress test for believing government shouldn't have the right to execute prisoners.

In the end, he had no problem getting a gun and finding people to indulge his insane beliefs, (hell, just as likely they're the ones who found him) and clearly had serious untreated mental health issues. Just a total list of failures all around. As much as I'd rather this guy was not alive, I'd rather those things get addressed first.

Republicans are now floating "The Party said they deserve to die, and I believe them" as a justification for murder. Lovely. There will be more of this. Lots more.
