    Police warned Navy about gunman's mental instability 6 weeks ago, report says

    A Newport, Rhode Island police sergeant reported Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis to naval station police last month after the suspect told cops he was “hearing voices” through his hotel room wall and that three people were following him and sending vibrations into his body, according to a police report obtained by FoxNews.com.

    50 years ago the police would have been allowed to involuntary commit Aaron Alexis to a mental facility for at least a 2 week evaluation. he could have gotten the help he needed and saved the public from his mental breakdown that led to the shooting

    Yep, but nut control is neither Feinstein's nor Obama's priority.

    So it seems like there was negligence as well. Psychotropic drugs people, another common denominator in the last four mass shootings. And like others, warnings ignored!

    As they shouldn't be.

    So they are giving security clearances to known nutjobs and people are worried about what they are doing with all the raw data the government is gathering

    On a more serious note, I have had to deal with mental people. It can be hard. They can be normal when they are on the meds and in a stable life situation and be bat poot crazy if they are not taking their meds properly or life becomes too stressful for them.

    even if it would have saved the lives of 12 including his own
    how is it ok to infringe on the rights of the millions of gun owners for so called public safety, but not to do the same of the mentally ill for the same reason

    If Aaron Alexis was a Tea Party member he would have never gotten his clearance he would be on some government terrorist watch list

    Maybe the police should have warned the Navy that Aron Alexis was a liberal and an Obama supporter.

    Now that's a dead giveawy of mental instability.
