    Police officer credited with halting rampage called lifesaver - again

    Pinned to the ground with a man choking him and grabbing for his handgun, police officer Shaun Appler caught out of the corner of his eye a small figure leaping through the air to free him.

    From that day on, Appler called Kimberly Munley "Mighty Mouse." Now a civilian police officer at Fort Hood, she is credited with stopping a rampage shooting at the Army post Thursday, in which 13 people were killed.

    "She saved my life that night," said Appler, a former partner of Munley's with the Wrightsville Beach, N.C., Police Department

    Fort Hood suspect went to DC security conferences

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The suspected Fort Hood shooter has participated in homeland security conferences since 2008 at George Washington University while based in the Washington area.

    .....

    Cilluffo says he remembers Hasan wore Army fatigues to conferences, which seemed odd at the time. Cilluffo says he remembers cutting Hasan off once for rambling, though he doesn’t remember the subject.

    When they made the death toll of 13, did they include the pregnant woman mentioned at the end of the previous thread and her unborn as 2 people? They should if they didn't do so!
    Hasan needs the worst death penalty that can be thought of!

    My prayers to all those soldiers and their families!

    But it has EVERYTHING to do with what happened.

    How many terrorist crimes have occurred or been foiled in the last YEAR, all committed in the name of Islam?

    You can't, with integrity, turn your back on your fellow Islamics who perpetrate terror and say "they are not US". They ARE YOU. Take responsibility for your OWN!! DO SOMETHING about them. Don't just make pathetic, victimy statements to the press. Don't just separate yourselves from them, it's absurd. Every three year old can connect the dang dots!!

    In my humble opinion, those who wish to pay the shooter any measure of sympathy or absolution due to his religious preferences are in turn disparaging the memory of the fallen soldiers, civilian, injured servicemen, mp's, medical personnel and those returning from war that are truly suffering from PTSD.

    When is the journalism industry going to realize that America wants the truth, not sensationalized reports that cloud the truth and alter the publics beliefs of the clarity of the situation?

    Integrity, especially is the case of victims, needs to be the forefront of any articles. The soldiers of the United State Army, sacrifice for their country and their families well being every day they are in the service to our country. They in no way deserve to be compared to this heinous mad man/terrorist.

    How can a person who was perfectly willing to join an organization set up to defend the US interests, decide to turn against that organization, when his "comfort zone" is threatened? He had NO problem accepting an education, food, housing, pay, medical benefits etc. He is trained in the art of psychiatry for Gods sake. He had resources available to him that many soldiers are unable to attain. He had tools at his disposal that could have attained his goals of not deploying to a war zone, as he was obviously willing to commit such an insane act. All he had to do was go into command and tell them of his plan to kill his fellow soldiers, that he had weaponry to carry out the mission and he had given away all of his personal belongings.

    I hope that someone in government is willing to stand up and come forward with a clear and precise account of what this truly was. An act of terrorism against our soldiers and the USAn

    I believe the only way to get the journalism industry to change is to reduce their revenue by canceling newspaper and magazine subscriptions and sending a letter telling them why, by changing the television channel and sending a letter telling them why, and by changing the radio station and sending a letter telling them why. When they are losing subscribers, viewers and listeners their bottom line is affected. Only then will they be concerned enough to change. JMHO, of course.

    My prayers are with the soldiers and their loved ones. May the victims heal quickly, may those who died rest in peace and may their loved ones have the strength they need to get through this horrible time.

    May the shooter... well, I better not say what I hope for him.

    As humans we are all equal. No one is better or worse than the next.

    Something everyone here at WS has apparently forgotten.

    RIP to all of the fallen and injured individuals.

    Peace on earth and goodwill be done to ALL people!

    Most of these very "PC" newspapers are going out of business,part of it due to the internet,but part of it due to the fact that they produce crappy newspapers! Same goes with news programs. They need to check the ratings and see whose on top. There's a reason!!

    What Triggers Mass Shootings?

    <snip>

    After Fort Hood And Orlando Rampages, Expert Discusses Causes, Warning Signs Would-Be Gunmen Give Off, And How to React

    The nation is reeling from two mass shootings in as many days, leading many to wonder, yet again, what could drive people to such acts of mass violence. Are there warning signs -- red flags -- that can signal trouble may be brewing? And if you notice them in someone you know, what should you do about it?

    .....

    Dr. Alan Lipman, a clinical psychologist and director of the Center for the Study of Violence<.link>, in Washington., D.C., says there are three types of people who go over the edge like that: the person is psychotic and has lost touch with reality, the person is depressed and feeling hopeless, or the person is a psychopath and enjoys killing. "It's always going to be one of these three," he told CBS News.

    Lipman says people don't always just "snap" -- it's "not always so quick. "First of all," he explains, "there's a period of buildup, then there's more anger and hopelessness, and then, finally, there is the trigger -- something that causes them to go from just an angry person to being a killer. When Major Hasan (a devout Muslin), discovered he was being deployed to the Middle East -- that may have been was his trigger." Rodriguez complained to a reporter that the engineering firm had left him "to rot."
