    They are handling this very different from recent shootings. Within hours we knew at least a bit about what we were dealing with. Its taken 24 hours and we still have only the barest of accounts. Good and bad I guess except that it has caused so much mindless speculation. Thoughts and prayers to the families of the victims.

    I think it might be due to the higher potential that he may not be acting alone, or act alone. The Shooter in Colorado was a lone person, it appears this one was part of a either white supremicts or neo nazi's. Which may mean that others are out waiting to take action

    Has it been verified by a REAL investigative agency, or just the highly untrustworthy southern poverty communist center?

    True.
    And there have apparently been hundreds of such incidents.
    American ignorance is not to be underestimated - especially of those idiots committing these crimes.
    But this guy I think 'knew better'/the difference and apparently just went after non-whites even though they weren't Muslims.

    Sikh temple shooting suspect identified as former U.S. Army soldier Wade Michael Page
    By Liz Goodwin & Dylan Stableford
    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/...123748845.html

    The man suspected of opening fire on Sunday in a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis., was identified as Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old former member of the U.S. Army, police said on Monday......


    A U.S. Army spokeswoman told Yahoo News that Page served from April 1992 until October 1998 as a member of the psychological operations unit. He was never deployed, but was awarded numerous medals, including two for good conduct and one for humanitarian service. Page, a Colorado native, received basic training in Fort Sill, Okla., moved to Fort Bliss in Texas and finished at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. A psychological operations specialist is "primarily responsible for the analysis, development and distribution of intelligence used for information and psychological effect," according to the U.S. Army website.

    According to Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards, Lt. Brian Murphy, a 51-year-old officer, was the first to arrive at the temple shortly after 10:25 a.m. Sunday. He began to render aid to one of the victims in the parking lot when he was "ambushed," Edwards said. Murphy was shot 8 or 9 times at close range with a handgun, Edwards said. Other officers exchanged gunfire with Page after they arrived, Edwards said, killing him. The officers then found Murphy in the parking lot. "He waved them off, and told them to go into the temple to assist those in there," Edwards said. Murphy was carried to a squad car and rushed to Milwaukee's Froedtert Hospital where he underwent surgery. Three shooting victims, including the officer, are listed in critical condition at the hospital.

    Page was discharged from the army in 1998 for "patterns of misconduct," according to CNN, citing a Pentagon official. The U.S. Army spokeswoman would not confirm or deny the CNN report. Edwards said it was a "general discharge" and that Page was "ineligible for re-enlistment."

    Sources told ABC News the suspect was a "white supremacist" or "skinhead." And officials told NBC News he had "some kind of radical or white supremacist views," but was apparently not a member of any kind of radical organization. His past run-ins with law enforcement were described as minor.

    According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Page "was a frustrated neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band." The band, called End Apathy, formed in 2005. According to the group's MySpace page, its music "is a sad commentary on our sick society and the problems that prevent true progress."

    No motive for the suspect was released. Police searched his apartment early Monday looking for clues to his motive, Reuters reported....Members of the temple described the gunman as a tall male with what appeared to be "a 9/11 tattoo." Officials told NBC News late Sunday that the suspect had many tattoos.[........]

    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    Gosh, I thought white supremacists and neo-nazis were just figments of the liberal imagination!
