I think that’s more for keeping people from mobbing the train station versus preventing some nut from getting into the most secured building on the planet.
KRON covering weather. *sigh*
>> It is served by dozens of buses at all hours of the day, so the shooter could be a local boy gone bad <<
If it were a big-time ROP operation, surely it would have occurred on the train — not outside at an entrance. So my guess is that the incident involves a jilted lover or a drug dealer’s enforcer.
Man caused disaster?
Let me guess... the ROP struck again!
Once I saw that kristinn had beat me on the thread I requested that the mods pull my thread. I didn’t see yours, so perhaps it was my fault that they puled yours, cause I told the mod that kirstinn had already posted a thread.

“Shooting Near D.C. Metro Station Puts Pentagon on Lockdown”
Thursday, March 04, 2010
SNIPPET: “The Blue-Yellow line at the Pentagon station is closed.
No one is being allowed in or out of the Pentagon.”
YIKES! That’s unreal.
The Pentagon is in Virginia — not sure how gun laws apply.
Three people, including two Pentagon police officers, were shot Thursday at the Metro transit entrance to the Pentagon, Pentagon officials told NBC News.
The third victim was possibly the suspect gunman, NBC reported.
Two of the victims were reportedly taken to George Washington Hospital for treatment; the third was treated at the scene for what was believed to be minor injuries.
Update coming up.
Still sounds to me street thugs.
Drug deal gone bad. Whatever. Thugs with guns.
No problem. The Mod Squad does what it does. This thread was a bit more articulate, and by then may well have had more replies. Only La Lydia managed to post to mine.
From twitter :
chrisgolden: WaPo via Pentagon Force Protection Agency: one person in custody. 2 shot confirmed to be police officers #Pentagon
No kidding. If it was a damn mohammed who shot the unarmed people, then you can bet the farm that the stupid bastards at the FBI will state that this was not terrorism.
Meanwhile, that worthless weasel General Casey will soon issue a statement saying that this "tragedy" should never overshadow the importance of political correctness, or some such horsesh!t.
Lest we forget, they are everywhere now.
I now understand what Lincoln was saying when he spoke about how perverting the constitution ultimately just made it a suicide pact.
CNN adds George Washington Hospital tells them that they are treating three people from the incident, presumably the two officers and the shooter.
CNN further reports the lockdown has been lifted at the Pentagon except for the Metro entrance.

SNIPPET: “Local television station WUSA reported three people were shot. Two were taken to George Washington Hospital in Washington, the station said.”
The shooter got rushed to the hospital??
Now it’s police officers who were shot? !!!!
prayers for those involved.
Cripes. Dear Lord.
I was much more content with street thug shootings.
I wonder if the shooter was trying to get into the Pentagon and shoot everyone he could?
jawsjudd: OMG I was half way up the Pentagon escalator when I heard about 6 shots fired-scariest moment of my life
Some witnesses reported hearing gunshots being fired in the station and people screaming.
Maybe this is something like the CIA shooting where the muzzie ambushed people at the entrance.
"A family source said Bishop, a mother of four children - the youngest a third-grade boy - was a far-left political extremist who was "obsessed" with President Obama to the point of being off-putting."--Boston Herald, February 15, 2010
'Oddball' portrait of Amy Bishop emerges:
Prayers up for the officers and their families.
My nephew works there. My brother in law was there during the 9/11 attacks and my father worked there. I am curious to find out more about the shooter
Thank you Kristinn.
KRON finally ran the story. Only 34 minutes after FR.
Dear God. Yes, prayers for the officers and their families.
No wonder the Pentagon went into lockdown.

He [Bill Ayers] got off on the groups multiple explosions, too, and discusses them rather lovingly in his memoir.
Ideal Bombing Weather:
'Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon,' he writes (although he concedes it was really a group effort). 'The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.' (p. 256 in the 2003 edition.)

Even during 9/11 alot of the employees remained in the pentagon.
The upstairs of the Pentagon Metro is also a major bus hub.
“Breaking: Shooting Outside Pentagon Metro Station”
