    Well, the last one was a jihad thing and yesterday the FBI was looking for another guy who was threatening the same. We'll see how this pans out.

    You may be thinking of the Navy yard in Washington DC.

    Let's hope it's not another "workplace violence" incident.

    It ain't, but this is the second time in recent history that there was an active shooter on this Fort.

    BTW, aren't all those laws about monitoring the People and gathering all our data and drones and patriot act nonsense supposed to stop things like this? Hmmmm...

    Ft Hood is not a restricted base...Hood has thousands of civilian workers. All is needed is a pass to get on post. Any number of workers could have easily brought a weapon with them.

    I live right next door to one of the largest, Joint Base Lewis McMcord (JBLM). JBLM, Hood, Bragg and Campbell are all in excess of 200,000 in population. Bragg is the biggest, followed by Hood, then Campbell and Lewis.

    And here I thought all those warrantless searches and massive data collection and analysis and the plethora of other Big Brother activities were gonna keep me safe.
