    It's little wonder I automatically wince before checking news headlines in these troubled, troubled times.

    Maybe everything happening with the economy, people are questioning their faith and the emotion which goes along with such creates a riper atmosphere for despair making Sundays and associated religious centers targets.

    This could end up being disgruntled employee or a guy who just went on a rampage with no real motive. Who knows? Makes me angry the POS would choose to harm the defenseless elderly or anyone else. He lived...so he can at least give us his reasons before they give him the DP.

    Not sure. I think Sunday tends to have an aura about it and thus, when something like this does take place, it shatters for many a day on which they celebrate spirituality, and thus the horrific event becomes extra-memorable.

    Sounds like his (the POS) wife may have worked there.

    Sorry no link, just guessing on my part from the presser.

    :(

    I hate that the vics, because of being in a nursing home and their age, were probably unable to get out of the way.

    What I got from the reporter's questions and the non answers from the authorities, it seems he was related in some way to a staff member, sorry if that isn't clear.

    This is just sickening.

    Thank you SuziQ for providing information. :blowkiss:

    I should have said the "no comment" answers. Didn't mean to be disrespectful to LE.

    I just watched ABC news and LE is now saying they didn't think the gunman was related to any of the victims.

    But IMO it would stand to reason that he might be related. Esp. since there was only one nurse who was killed, the others were residents.
