    Charges filed in Tranquility Park shooting

    HOUSTON - A man has been charged with firing shots in a downtown Houston park.
    Joshua Anthony Twohig, 21, was charged with aggravated assault against a public servant.
    Houston police said Twohig was seen firing shots in Tranquility Park on Rusk Street about 5:10 p.m. Monday.
    The man, calling himself the White Knight, fired at least 15 shots at the police, and various buildings and structures in the Tranquility Park area, while threatening several Occupy Houston protesters and police officers, All the time he was firing, he was ranting about police corruption. And you don't threaten cops here in Houston. He was shot twice by the police for doing that. In the process, it looks like he was attempting suicide by cop.

    OK, the man got his 15 minutes of fame. Now he will get about 15 years to revel in it, while everybody else forgets about him.

    Why are all the crazy gunmen such lousy aims?
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    No clue why, but very grateful many are not firearms expects.
    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.
