    Gunman Kills Four People in Texas; Used Explosive: Police......

    A gunman used an "explosive device" in an attack at two different residences near Dallas, Texas, that left four people dead and four others wounded in an apparent domestic dispute, police said on Thursday.

    A suspect was taken into custody, Corporal Melissa Franks of the DeSoto Police Department told a news briefing.

    Police would not confirm the gunman's identity, though several local media reports said the suspected attacker was Erbie Bowser, a former special education teacher.

    Laura Jobe, a spokeswoman for the Mesquite Independent School District outside of Dallas, confirmed that Bowser, a certified special education teacher, worked at two schools there from December 2001 through March 2010, and left on good terms. He also coached football at the West Mesquite High School.

    "He left on good terms. He did resign, he was not terminated," she said.....snip~

    Doesn't say what type of explosive.....domestic dispute too. Plus he was a Dancer for the Dallas Mavericks football team. People called him a Gentle Giant. Must have been something to get him to go off then.

    Nothing like a good old-fashioned domestic dispute to drive someone over the edge. I think those are the most dangerous. A wifey's getting a divorce . . . the guy's out of work (which may be part of the reason wifey's getting a divorce) . . . he sees his whole life going up in flames . . . no light at the end of the tunnel.

    Yep. Cops hate domestic disputes for good reason. They can turn violent in a heartbeat.

    The facts surrounding the event are still a tad confusing. Was the "explosive device" he used some sort of homemade gun? It says the victims had gunshot wounds but that an explosive device was used.

    The gov't, NSA, CIA, FBI, DIA, etc. spend trillions of dollars on a war of terror and we don't really have a terror war, just the same ol', same ol' another day. Let's get rid of these gov't terror employees, let the Corporate World pay to defend from their own enemies and use the money for real local level jobs that actually produce something.

    This is what happens when the press is allowed to make wild speculation in the absence of factual findings.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
