Another Shooting at Fort Hood … 4 Dead Including Gunman … Shooter ID’d as 34 Year Old Fort Hood Soldier Ivan Lopez
If we learn nothing from history, be are destined to repeat it …
Sadly, yesterday we were witness to another shooting at Fort Hood where three people were killed and 16 individuals injured before the gunman killed himself. The shooter was identified as 34 year old Fort Hood Army specialist Ivan Lopez. According to Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley, the shooter served in Iraq in 2011 and was being treated for “behavioral health and mental health” issues. Lopez had been undergoing an assessment to determine whether he had post-traumatic stress disorder.
Have we learned nothing from the 2009 Fort Hood shooting where Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan killed 12 soldiers?
There was a shooting on Fort Hood on Wednesday afternoon.
Three people are dead along with the shooter, and 16 others were injured. All were active duty military.
Thirty-four-year-old Fort Hood soldier Ivan Lopez was identified as the shooter. General Milley said that the shooter was being treated for mental issues, but not yet diagnosed with PTSD. The shooter is married with family in the local area, and he just arrived at Fort Hood in February.
Lopez is said to have been the only gunman.
Gen Milley believes the shooting started when he opened fire in a building. He then left the building, got into his vehicle, and fired. He then got out of his vehicle again and went into another building. After entering the second building, he became face-to-face with an officer and that is when he shot himself.

UPDATE II: Press Conference (VIDEO)
The suspect, a soldier who had served in Iraq, “had behavioral health and mental health” issues, Milley told reporters late Wednesday.
The general said there was no known motive for the shooting.
“There is no indication that this incident is related to terrorism, although we are not ruling anything out,” he said.
The suspected shooter was wearing combat fatigues, said a U.S. official briefed on the shooting. He was armed with a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun that he purchased recently, said Milley.
Peter Lanza, the Father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza Gives First Interview: He Would have Killed Me ‘in a Heartbeat’ … “You Can’t Get Any More Evil” … “Wishes His Son Was Never Born”
Peter Lanza, the father of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooter Adam Lanza, gave his first interview since the horrendous mass murder in Newton, CT. Peter Lanza was interviewed by the New Yorker and stated, “With hindsight, I know Adam would have killed me in a heartbeat, if he’d had the chance.” Peter also had a motive behind the reason why his son shot his mother multiple times; “The reason he shot Nancy four times was one for each of us: one for Nancy; one for him; one for (his brother) Ryan; one for me.” He would later say with regards to the mass killing of children and teachers at the school,”You can’t get any more evil.”
The father of the Sandy Hook Elementary School gunman Adam Lanza says he carries guilt about his son’s violent rampage and then says something that probably comes as one of the worst thing they can ever say as a parent, Peter Lanza “wishes his son had never been born”. I bet there are families of 26 victims from Sandy Hook that would say the same.
The father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza said his son would have killed him if he’d had the opportunity.
“With hindsight, I know Adam would have killed me in a heartbeat, if he’d had the chance,” Peter Lanza told New Yorker magazine in an interview that appears in the March 17 issue.
It’s the first time Peter Lanza has spoken publicly about his son.
“The reason he shot Nancy four times was one for each of us: one for Nancy; one for him; one for (his brother) Ryan; one for me,” he said.

Peter hadn’t seen his son for two years at the time of the Sandy Hook killings, and, even with hindsight, he doesn’t think that the catastrophe could have been predicted. But he constantly thinks about what he could have done differently and wishes he had pushed harder to see Adam. “Any variation on what I did and how my relationship was had to be good, because no outcome could be worse,” he said. Another time, he said, “You can’t get any more evil,” and added, “How much do I beat up on myself about the fact that he’s my son? A lot.”
Depending on whom you ask, there were twenty-six, twenty-seven, or twenty-eight victims in Newtown. It’s twenty-six if you count only those who were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School; twenty-seven if you include Nancy Lanza; twenty-eight if you judge Adam’s suicide a loss. There are twenty-six stars on the local firehouse roof. On the anniversary of the shootings, President Obama referred to “six dedicated school workers and twenty beautiful children” who had been killed, and the governor of Connecticut asked churches to ring their bells twenty-six times. Some churches in Newtown had previously commemorated the victims by ringing twenty-eight times, but a popular narrative had taken hold in which Nancy—a gun enthusiast who had taught Adam to shoot—was an accessory to the crime, rather than its victim. Emily Miller, an editor at the Washington Times, wrote, “We can’t blame lax gun-control laws, access to mental health treatment, prescription drugs or video games for Lanza’s terrible killing spree. We can point to a mother who should have been more aware of how sick her son had become and forced treatment.” (read the full story HERE)
Let us never forget the 20 precious angles that were killed that day and the six heroic adults who tried to protect them.
Radio Host Nancy Lane Fired From Her Job at Forever Broadcasting Because of Her Deranged Ex-husband … “Regrettably Recent Events Involving Your Former Husband has Caused Severe Disruption to our Business”
Imagine being fired from a job not because of your actions or poor performance, but instead because you have a lunatic, psycho, deranged ex-spouse.
Nancy Lane was best known as Daisy or Lexi and was a popular radio host on two of Forever Broadcasting’s stations, WFGI-FM, Froggy 95, and WRKW-FM, Rocky 99, in Johnstown, PA. That was until last Tuesday when she was fired. But she was not fired for her poor job performance, she was fired because of the actions of her lunatic ex-husband. Her former husband, George Lane, has in recent months threatened Nancy, her family and her co-workers. Now. his actions have caused her to be fired. Nancy Lane said, “It’s defeating to me that my job now has been let go because of violent acts of a person who is clearly of not right mind and not right demeanor. Now another facet of my life is affected by this.”

Nancy Lane told WJAC-TV that the past several years have been difficult on her, but things have amplified in the past few months with her ex-husband allegedly making violent threats against her and her former employer, Forever Broadcasting.
“Not only has my personal life been greatly affected and influenced, terror, fear, all of that, but I’ve worked very hard as a person in the public eye to maintain a certain reputation and now that’s been stripped from me as well,” she said.
Lane, who had a show on two Forever Broadcasting stations in Johnstown, says the termination letter she received — and partially read aloud to WJAC-TV — doesn’t mention poor performance as a factor in letting her go.
“Regrettably recent events involving your former husband has caused severe disruption to our business and has made this decision necessary,” the letter said, according to Lane.
This is so wrong that some one would be fired from their job because of some one who is a deranged lunatic and no longer even a part of one’s life. Nancy Lane is a victim of an abusive and crazy ex-husband, yet her employer is punishing her for it.

Miriam Carey, Woman Who Rammed Barriers at White House and Involved in Car Chase to Capitol before Being Shot Dead … ‘may have thought that President Barack Obama was stalking her’
34 year old Miriam Carey of Stamford, CT who led police on a car chase from the White House to the Capitol in Washington, DC before being killed by police may have thought that President Barack Obama was stalking her. Sadly, Carey suffered from mental issues, including in some reports postpartum depression. She also had a history of mental issues. No matter how one looks at it, she was just a woman with too many issues. Now I agree with the Vodka Pundit 100% in that “what happened yesterday wasn’t even an attack , it was a disturbed woman acting out her delusion”. And thank God she did not harm anyone else seriously, including her one year old child. But, I will say the following. Imagine if the optics were different and instead of a crazy black woman in a car going off the rails and claiming that Barack Obama was stalking her, it was an insane white, male, Tea Party member in an SUV? Do you think the news coverage would be different?
The MSM would be making calls of racism, but for some reason this story does not fit their usual narrative.
The woman who led authorities on a chase from the White House to the Capitol before she was killed by police may have thought that President Barack Obama was stalking her, law enforcement sources told NBC News.
The sources said that the woman, Miriam Carey, had a history of mental health problems.
The chase, on Thursday afternoon, stirred panic in the capital and briefly stopped the mechanisms of government. It happened two weeks after a man shot 12 people to death at the Washington Navy Yard.
Members of the House and Senate, in a standoff over the government shutdown, were ordered to stay in place. One lawmaker was cut off mid-sentence during a speech. A swarm of police startled tourists who were taking in Washington on a summery day.
If GWB was President, the MSM would have reported the following headline … Was George W. Bush responsible for the death of Miriam Carey?

Washington Navy Yard Gunman Aaron Alexis was Treated for Serious Mental Health Issues … He Had Been Hearing Voices in his Head
How many red flags were needed to have the Washington Navy Yard gunman’s security clearance taken away?
Now the AP is reporting that Aaron Alexis was being treated for serious mental illness. The man who would yesterday murder 12 individuals and wounded countless others was hearing voices in his head. All this and still no one thought that this guy was a risk to himself and others. Because some how being previously arrested for shooting a bullet into your neighbors home is not grounds to not get a security clearance when employed with a government contractor.
The more reports that come out about Aaron Alexis, the more we learn that yesterday’s massacre could have been completely avoided.
U.S. law enforcement officials are telling The Associated Press that the Navy contractor identified as the gunman in the mass shootings at the Washington Navy Yard had been 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.
Aaron Alexis, 34, had been treated since August by the Veterans Administration for his mental problems …
Seriously, how did this guy have any clearance what so ever? The NSA can tape everything we do but some how a guy like this slips through the cracks?
