Posted on 01/22/2013 10:34:00 AM PST by CedarDave
Bernalillo County Sheriff Dan Houston and one of his top investigators said during a news conference this morning that 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego had been planning violence for at least a week.
Investigators are still trying to determine who, if anyone, he told about his plans. Among those detectives are considering as someone who may have known is Griegos 12-year-old girlfriend.
Houston said that although he has numerous arrests in his past, it does not appear Greg Griego was a convicted felon.
[Sheriffs Lt. Sid] Covington said it appears some of the guns owned by Greg Griego including possibly those used in the killings had been purchased by Greg Griegos friends and then either sold or given to the pastor. BCSO is working with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to trace the history of those guns, as well as the two pistol-grip 12-gauge shotguns that were found in the Griegos home ...

Nehemiah then waited for five hours in a downstairs bathroom for his father to come home. When Greg Griego walked into the house, his son ambushed him, shooting him multiple times with the AR-15, the statement said.

Throw him in a lab, study him, then do away with the carcass after. Keep the brain I guess for later.
So this wasn’t a mass murder by a person with an AR-15. He used a .22 on the rest of the family. He only killed one person with the AR-15...that belonged to someone else. Presumably his father.
This monster wasn’t made overnight.
“This monster wasnt made overnight.”
Some monsters aren’t made; they’re born.
The apparent fact that this couple has 9 other children, who have no publicized history of any violence or problem, would indicate to me that this one wasn’t “made.”
Indeed, four killed with the .22 rifle. Reported yesterday that the guns were in kept in a closet at the home.
Well, there's your problem right there. It's a dangerous mix of the BATFE and dueling hand grips.
A 12 year old was his girlfriend? Wow.
The dead eyes of a psychopath.
he seemed like a normal kid, but was inhabited by a demon.
Theis latest rash of shootings should be a wakeup call to parents. Do not assume that your silent/antisocial/violent/scheming kid is OK.
The only thing under assault is constitutional rights by "assault-style" journalism.
According to ABC radio news, the kid was really into violent video games like Call of Duty etc.
They have the killer and the guns he used so why are the police wasting time tracking down the origin of the other guns? My guess is that those pigs are going to try and hang a crime around the neck of whaterver poor shlub sold or gave the guns to the Pastor. That will teach those proles not to sell guns to one another.
They will use it to bolster the 40% fantasy to get “100% background checks” on transfers.
Plus go after the original owners in multiple civil suits.
It’s only relevant that there was ar AR platform within a 15 mile radius of the event. No other firearms are to be mentioned. And, someone knew of this kids mind set. And, nothing was done. So why even mention a person in reporting? Just simplify things and say a gun went on a rampage and killed a family. Oddly, 100’s of millions of firearms didn’t do anything wrong yesterday. So for the .001% (or is it .0001%) of the ones that did act out, we MUST punish the rest.
Houston shooting? Doesn’t this all seem a little odd? “Whatever it takes”
