I KNEW Big Sis and company would look
for an out for more monitoring, tracking.
They’re foaming at the mouth to shut us
down and control the web.

I still sense a change at FNC. Maybe they
were warned of a coming clampdown and watch
your p’s and q’s.

“2 Pentagon Police Officers Shot Outside D.C. Metro Station”
Thursday, March 04, 2010

SNIPPET: “The motive for the shooting in suburban Washington, D.C., wasn’t immediately clear, but Fox News confirmed the gunman was identified as 36-year-old John Patrick Bedell.

A second person was being questioned by authorities, but sources say that person may just be a witness and not considered a suspect .

The gunman was calm as he approached the officers at the main entrance around 6:40 p.m., Pentagon Police Chief Richard Keevil said at a news conference. The officers asked to see his pass to enter the building; he started shooting without saying a word.”

WaPost uses FR to fact-check their stories - so they will not be exposed and embarrased for their blantant biased propanganda mistakes

My BG on this was on the UNIBOMBER and the Beltway Snipers

They paid quick and careful attention about TK - slow and sloppy on the Snipers - Chief Moose as a racist goon I spotted from Page One “Two white men in a white van!” (I said a plain brown wrapper ex-LE-interceptor with 2 black Muzzies) Who was dead on?

Both were logical cases - esp. TK - but took some time to develop and refine

Reports: Pentagon Gunman From Hollister
2 Officers Injured In Shooting

POSTED: 8:01 pm PST March 4, 2010
UPDATED: 9:26 pm PST March 4, 2010

###

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Multiple news sources are reporting that a man accused of shooting two officers at the Pentagon complex on Thursday is from Hollister.

Law enforcement sources identified the suspect as John Patrick Bedell, 36.

KNX Radio, which is based in Los Angeles, originally reported that Bedell is from Hollister.

The Washington Post then reported that when a call was made to a home in Hollister, a man identified himself as John Bedell and said he had a 36-year-old son in the Washington D.C. area named John Patrick Bedell before hanging up.

Two officers suffered grazing wounds when a gunman drew a weapon from his pocket and opened fire at the teeming subway entrance to the Pentagon complex at about 6:40 p.m. EST Thursday.

The officers wounds were not life-threatening and they were being treated at a hospital, said Richard Keevill, chief of Pentagon police.

“He just reached in his pocket, pulled out a gun and started shooting,” Keevill said. “He walked up very cool. He had no real emotion on his face.” The Pentagon officers returned fire with semiautomatic weapons. Of the suspect, the chief said, “His injury is pretty critical.”

The assault at the very threshold of the Pentagon - the U.S. capital’s ground zero on Sept. 11, 2001 - came four months after a deadly attack on the Army’s Fort Hood, Texas, base allegedly by a U.S. Army psychiatrist with radical Islamic leanings. In the immediate aftermath Thursday, investigators did not think terrorism was involved but were not ruling that out and did not discuss possible motives.

That’s him, the father, it truly seems. This kid is from Hollister, California apparantly. I tracked it at least two hours ago down to the websites the kid ran, spamming trouble he got into, and lots of other things. Police are slow on this one, Freepers and CBS Radio apparantly are quick.

Hollister is nice rural country living in Calif.

The city is modern and we almost bought a house out there except a snake came down the hallway — I ruled it out.

To be fair to the Washington Post (barf!), tonight it was actually an online poster with no connection to them, just a reader, who showed up on their chat site at the story about this crime, and then the audacity of trying to tie this shooter Bedell to Free Republic. even if with a lame, sarcastic jok.e. Of course, she had to don her asbestos underwear shortly thereafter and was set straight i would say....

As was expected, with that kind of head wound. Prayers for his soul (I dont wish eternal Hell on anyone—well, except maybe Kim Jong il), and of course also prayers for THOSE RECOVERING IN D.C., those heroes there today. They protected our beloved Pentagon and really walked the walk.

I find it interesting that he has a link to the Marine Marathon on his facebook.

I wonder if he was a runner, or if that would have been a great place for him to shoot up a bunch of Marines. The marathon is in 33 days, so he might have been planning ahead.

The law says you CAN be fined, but I’ve
also read that no one has ever been fined.
