Guy Who Allegedly Shot a BLM Agent and California Patrolman Is Exactly the Type You’d Imagine

I’m not sure how this didn’t immediately hit the media bloodstream but apparently over the weekend there was a shooting in California, near the Nevada state line, that left a California Highway Patrolman and an agent for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management injured. According to the Sacramento Bee the shooting happened at a campground, with the BLM agent calling for backup from the California Highway Patrol. Both law enforcement officers were reportedly shot but neither of their wounds is life-threatening. The shooter was also injured and is currently hospitalized.
Now, about that shooter. The Bee identifies him as 60-year-old Brent Douglas Cole. A quick check of social media activity for that name turns up what appear to be the Facebook and Twitter accounts belonging to the guy police say is their gunman. As Charles Johnson over at Little Green Footballs says, the Brent Douglas Cole revealed in these timelines is pretty much your average “Sovereign Citizen” kind of crazy: a guy who rants about the Zionists and the gun-grabbers, who supports groups like the Oath Keepers and “Chemtrails Sky Watch,” and who talks about how Americans need to “get off the fluoride.” Cole is currently awaiting a hearing on a state of California weapons charge against him, which he’s defending as an infringement of his constitutional rights. He maintains a separate online presence at “United Truth Seekers,” where he posts about the Illuminati and how 9/11 was an inside job.
Oh yeah, he’s also a birther.
