    4 dead 14 wounded...... they are saying the shooter was a Specialist. At least that's what they are saying on the radio. Most wounds they are saying were Head and Upper chest. Anyone get anything on that to validate?


    Fort Hood shooting reportedly leaves 4 dead, including gunman

    According to KCEN-TV, the four reported dead included the gunman. At least 14 were injured in the shooting, the Associated Press said.

    I've mentioned to him to tour Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery where my Dad's buried just south of Joliet, IL some day.
    Also just south of Chicagoland Nascar Speedway for reference.
    It is located on the old proving grounds of JAAP/APSA, a huge installation during the Vietnam War.

    Overwhelming to say the least, the computerized cemetary never looks the same between visits,
    with the incredibly large number of VETs dying every day from wars back to WW2.

    Though he pisses me off with this crap, I'll never give up on helping him find peace before he dies .

    Re: Source: Active shooter at Fort Hood

    Excuse me if I don't get into the pissing match here but this hurts to hear of another shooting of innocent people.

    If someone is willing to make it a suicide mission it is almost virtually impossible to prevent it. It is hard to comprehend what makes a person react like that.

    It is interesting that it seems suicide killers in the Middle East prefer bombs and here in the US they prefer guns. Of the two weapons if I had to make a choice I would prefer to deal with someone with a gun rather than a bomb. Am not making any rant about guns or bombs but just an observation so the pissers can go piss on themselves.

    Bombs are cheaper than guns.

    Do you have any evidence that this was a terrorist attack rather than someone simply going crazy? It is completely possible to shoot people just because a person is crazy, without having any political agenda whatsoever (which is required to define such an attack as a terrorist attack).

    Take the guy just last week who killed the sailor onboard the ship. Doesn't sound like it was terrorism, although his real motives are unknown at this time.

    And from what I just read, it sounds like it was some sort of fight between two people that got way out of control.

    Ft. Hood shooting was reportedly 'soldier on soldier' incident | Fox News

    So it seems this one may have just been the result of anger leading to very stupid and fatal decision, and then possibly fear or perhaps even insanity leading to further shootings.

    Wow that is sad, especially if it is true that it all started over a fight between soldiers.
