FULL TITLE: Inside the mind of the Navy Yard killer: 'Paranoid' gunman was being treated for mental illness and was left 'devastated after Thai girlfriend dumped him when she refused to move to the U.S.'
Washington Naval Yard gunman Aaron Alexis began treatment for serious mental illness in August as friends of the shooter today revealed he was devastated last year when a Thai girlfriend left him broken-hearted.
According to anonymous law enforcement officials, Alexis, 34, sought treatment from the Veterans Administration for paranoia, insomnia and possible schizophrenia just one month before his shooting rampage which claimed the lives of 12 people on Monday.
Prior to this, Alexis visited Thailand in 2012 where he spent his time frequenting massage parlors and was crushed when a girl he liked rejected his offer to come and live with him in the United States because the woman 'didn't like black people.'

Indeed, such was Alexis' fascination with Thai culture, Buddhism and Thai people that he traveled to the south east Asian country in March and April of 2012.
According to the UK's Channel 4 News, he spent 45 days in the country and was shown around by Parin Suthamtewakul, a relative of Nutpisit Suthamtewaku. Gunman: Accprding to NBC Washington, this man Aaron Alexis, 34, from Fort Worth, Texas is the Navy Yard shooter
Gunman: According to NBC Washington, this man Aaron Alexis, 34, from Fort Worth, Texas is the Navy Yard shooter. A background check has revealed that this is the police mugshot for Alexis who was arrested but not charged for firing a gun in his apartment in 2010

They still aren’t saying what meds he was on.
If he was in real bad shape, the physiatrist should have reported him.
It says that the girlfriend didn’t like black people. Then why was she his girlfriend?
Also, I heard he was from NY, but had lived briefly in TX. But the media seems to focus on the TX part. No agenda there...
What was a nutcase doing working for a Contractor.
The guy went to Thailand and fell in love with a Thai whore, who gave him a rub job, but didn’t like black people.
This guy was Fugged up.
Name the so-called “anti-depressant” here: ______________
That which makes some people *care* - *less.* As in, being intellectually aware of what is right and wrong, but *still very much aware of how their conscience is suppressed:*
The thing that makes a person *FEEL* restraint and wonder, “Is this right? ... is suppressed for some patients.
That stuff does *NOT* work as well as its pushers claim.
This lady gets promotion “health care admin”
A little blatant
Apparently she resigned before the shootings.
Since he was in Texas and George Bush was also from Texas, it is obviously Bush’s fault. Well, Bush and the gun which sort of fired all by itself.
He was probably a mandatory hire to begin with. Just like that fired negro policeman that killed all those white folks out of revenge.
Can you imagine being self aware that you’re incompetent for a job and being surrounded by more qualified folks that knew you were forced on them and that’s you’re entire life experience wherever you’ve been? You got in not by competence but because of the threat of law and it was almost impossible to be fired.
That has to create a lot of mental baggage over time.
I just received word thru the grapevine that Alexis had worked at the Navy’s NUWC facility in Newport, RI prior to DC.
Inside the mind of a spineless military bureaucrat:
Sure his dossier indicates that he’s psycho, but if we classify him as that and take away his gun, he’ll claim we’re discriminating against him because he’s black.
They still arent saying what meds he was on.
I predict that will remain a deep secret a long time. I have a hunch there's a great deal to hide.
Looking for info
As an honorably discharged vet from a good ways back, I thought the VA was only for retired vets and disabled vets.
Especially, since this guy was discharged other than honorable.
How does it work, do ya’ll know?
Just...wow! I have had my heart broken so many times it’s not funny.
And I just keep keepin’ on.
Possibly money was involved. :)
And notice that he doesn’t seem to have any parents or family.
In the beginning it was promised forever if you actually needed it. I joined in 1957 along with a buddy and he was treated gratis at an Oklahoma VA hospital, until he died a couple years ago, it may vary from state to state. He was not disabled or retired but they honored his service anyway.
And yet he got a Secret Clearance to work at the yard......
Nobody that I've heard has said anything about him ever being deployed. Since when do Reservists get VA benefits, unless they were activated? Is this something new? Not earthshaking, just curious.
Reminds me of the Status I saw on the Facebook page of one of my son’s female Navy friends: “One more bad relationship away from having 27 cats.”
The scrubbing, the lies, the revisions, the false histories:
“Let the Games Begin.”
Please tell me how this deranged loser got a top security clearance; an automatic rifle and ammo; a top-of-the line auto; a room with a view at a swanky hotel, etc. etc. etc.
He was supposed to be so broke that he took his meals at a Thai restaurant in exchange for waiting tables. He was so dysfunctional that even the kind Buddhists couldn’t get through to him to “manage his anger”.
This maniacal robotic piece of crap couldn’t even tie his own shoelaces. (I bet he had velcro closures on his sneakers.)
And we are to believe that he pulled this off on his own.
The left will use this as an excuse to track “mental illness” even more, to prevent people from owning guns.
Not really the issue.
Here we have a dude that has had previous cases where he went off the deep end and started shooting stuff up.
He also has mental health issues.
He might have even been dishonorably discharged.
Most states have laws about who can legally purchase/own guns. Here in Washington, he would not have been able to buy a firearm.
Somebody dropped the ball, and I am betting CURRENT laws were not enforced.
Passing more laws and taking away everybody elses guns isn’t gonna do a darn thing to stop a maniac like this guy.
Probably the smartest move she ever made.
Is security at a military base not an issue here?
Security at most US military bases is very lax. They have become so complacent, 12 years out from 9-11-2001.
Government healthcare failure.
The guy is 34.
Claims he was stressed out by 9/11/01 NYC attack.
He would have been 22.
Was he even in NYC?
I guess the MSM is checking this out.
The loonies used to be kept safe from harming themselves and others in an asylum. The left released them and now they walk the streets in hopes that they’ll stay on their meds and off meth or bath salts. It ain’t working, just like every other liberal nutbag idea they force on the rest of us.
“suffering a host of serious mental issues, including paranoia and a sleep disorder. He also had been hearing voices in his head, the officials said.”
I posted this early this morning but it got yanked within two seconds by the mods for it being a dupe even though it was from AP and CBS so do with it what you will.
The local news in Austin, TX had an interview with his brother in law last night but I can’t find it on their site today. It was part of a story on him claiming the government was discriminating against him and that his benefits weren’t enough to pay the bills.
He has a brother in law? So he must have a sister or a wife. All the news accounts skip over anything about a family. I guess he sprang full-grown from the head of Al Sharpton.
His roommate in TX said he asked Alexis to move in with them after a noise disturbance with with neighbor. Yeah, shooting through the neighbor's floor might be considered a noise disturbance by some. The roommate also said Alexis moved out from them because he didn't like their cats.
Some FReeper/s found his parents and apparently he grew up in NY. Of course, the msm is too interested in playing the Texas card. They can’t have another East Coast raised mass murderer so soon after after the Boston Bombers and Hasan’s sentencing.
Events like this will continue to happen until we OUTLAW MENTAL ILLNESS.
Where did this guy get the money for all this travelling?
Lots of us were told medical treatment would be free if we served our hitch and was honorably discharged. Nobody told me it would be means tested just when I started to need it.
I’ve had some upstairs neighbors that sure made me think about firing a gun through the ceiling. I said “think” about it.
Well, Lynn-DAH-the-Dog keeps me busy enough already! LOL!
