This is just like a NCIS show that was on where the Shooter targeted Marine Recruiters. Don't know if the reason he did it was the same reason that he was turned down from joining the Marines or not. Just how many crimes are copied from TV shows, Movies, and video games? When will we if every get this trash off TV? If people see this everyday they think it's normal. I just don't understand. I spent 22 years in the Air Force for this Country and I hate to see it in the Shape it's in now.

Why are we giving these people media attention when that is their intended purpose anyway? Shouldn't we keep our focus on the support of the community and those we lost?

After reading this article, I wonder if the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community offered prayers for the murdered Marines, but not for the murderer because they suppose the Marines are in Hell and their killer is in paradise? I'm just saying.
