"I am horrified that he apparently didn’t give a damn about his wife and child."

Between this guy, and the guy who threw the 3-month old off the bridge this week, what is wrong with these people?

True, but with this recession, there's so much empty commercial real estate available, the plane may have hit an empty floor - or two.

Well, let's hope so, anyway.

STATT. Joesph STATT.

Maybe that’s why FNC is slow to give the name.

From Twitter:

MSNBC reporting the name of the owner of the Texas home that
was/is on fire as Joseph Stack.

Scanner audio indicating that the FBI has taken over investigation and interviews of witnesses.

Fox just ran a crawl again saying FBI does not think it is terrorism.

The guy in question here may be a Joseph Stack.

This plan is registered to a Joseph Stack...

look where the last flight plan ended....Georgetown, TX.

Now, I am still a bit confused here....it could be Stack was the victim of the theft and is not the person who flew the plane into the building here.

But, the plane is tied to him:

Based on the profile described for the wife, this seems to be her.

He supposedly has a wife and a 12-year-old daughter, Cheryl, who got out of the house fire ok.

And the house burns with whatever evidence is inside it.

Agreed -- I found the same thing with rented planes, except I thought they maintained them "by the book" because they didn't want to be liable for damages in the event there was an incident due to lack of maintenance.

That's true. One lawsuit could put their business under.

Another consideration is that many rental planes are associated with flight schools. When students take their checkride, they are quizzed on the aircraft's maintenance history and records. Candidates must demostrate to the examiner that the plane has been properly maintained, all airworthiness directives met, etc...

So far, it doesn't sound like terrorism to me.

Sounds like a guy whose life was coming apart at the seams (taxes and/or pending divorce, etc.), and he decided to go out with a bang.

I could be wrong, but that's what it smells like at this point. Details will tell the story in time.

There were idiots on the other thread expressing sympathy if the IRS was indeed targeted. That’s all FR needs, is to have views like that be reported in the MSM. If Olbermann and other libs latch onto those kinds of comments, who can blame them for calling FR extremist?

You should definitely point it out and bring that same content into a separate thread, then. That'll keep it super quiet and limited.

Wrong addresses, wrong names, Waco, Austin.... and Lord knows what else...TV just don’t know, but want to be the first to report it!

But for heavens sake...it isn’t terrorism! How in the world do they know that right now?

It’s just ludicrous to make that statement before all info is in!!!

While it probably isn’t organized terrorism, it is a terrorist act. It was designed to hit a visible, relevant target — that’s terrorism in my book.
