    Saw it too. They may have noticed him (movement, etc) out of the corner of their eyes, but to watch him point the gun and they don't even notice it there...I don't mind saying that I wish I hadn't watched it.

    When I dabbled in media arts at Wash U, we were taught to constantly pay attention to the red light, and where it was focused. I got tunnel vision after one semester, and these people were pros.

    Considering his background, he knew that. It makes that POV vid he posted on Liveleak all the more gruesome. Dude waited until the cam panned back to her before he started shooting.

    From what I've heard about him and the people he worked with, everyone must have known this guy was mentally ill. Yet no one did anything about it. No word from the guy's family, if he had one. There is one sick SOB that Sharpton should be condemning right now. I hate crime pure and simple. Where is the outrage?

    You didn't get the memo? Hate crimes don't apply to us white folks. Slavery and all.

    What can anyone do about someone being mentally ill?

    Definitely a hate crime.

    No such thing as a 'hate' crime. This is a crime, plain and simple. His motivation might be hate, but then again he may have just wanted the attention. Doesn't matter, 'hate crime' is just a convenient handle to hang on something in order to make others feel a certain way about it.

    I think it Jayhawker who posted it a few years back...there are no surprises with these guys, only signs that were misunderstood or ignored entirely. In this case, I would say mostly ignored. It sounds like everybody knew he was a headcase, but so long as he wasn't their headcase, it was all good. Nobody was surprised to find out he was the shooter.

    Man, Obammy, Pantsuit all the REP contenders have spoken out about the call for more gun control. Poor gal who got murdered father is talking about "Loopholes" although I feel sorry for him and his loss, he is barking up the wrong tree.

    Not trying to diminish the loss of his daughter and the cameraman and I couldn't imagine how heartrending it must be for him and his family. However, two of our soldiers were killed in Afghanistan the other day by an Afghan who turned on them. Very little coverage besides a fleeting mention on any news channel. I know two of their "Own" were gunned down in a dramatic way with it all captured on video, but still I think about things like this and how they play out on the news.

    I have stood on the side of the road many times in Afghanistan when a "Fallen Comrade" procession is held on Bagram Airfield. A hummer with a flag draped coffin rolls by to be loaded on an aircraft to be flown to Dover. That will put more than a lump in your throat.

    Now Facebook is awash with claims that this was a put up job by the TV station and that the two folks really aren't dead...an "expert" has dissected the shooting video and claims that since there are no signs of "impact" on the female, no blood and the fact that she ran off, the BG was shooting blanks...One of his buddies claims that a 9mm hollow point would have "torn her in half".... The one thing these idiots have yet to explain is; Where are these two rather well-known individuals going to disappear to for the rest of their lives? Let's see -how many people would have to keep their mouths shut to pull off this conspiracy to grab our guns?

    Yeah, a guy called in to local talk radio and said basically the same thing...claimed the same for Sandy Hook. All a government sham. I guess there is no accounting for crazy.:silly:

    Now news stations are going to have to hire security for out in the field reporting. I think this might inspire other people to do the same thing. What a world we live in...
