I heard the same thing I believe on CNN and MSNBC. Even on the press conference afterwards, several media people asked aggresively about the weapons used, and the detective had to at least twice say they were (2) pistols. The media also said that first he was laid off form IBM, then second I heard he was laid off form a vaccume cleaner Co. and third, now I've heard he was a member of this group studying to become an American citizen.
What really gripes me about yesterdays horrible event is that these immigrants, coming here to America, were trying to do it the right way and were taking classes and working to become proper American Citizens. Unlike many others who cross our borders and live and work here illegally. The guy that commited this terrible act, was, IMO, a dullard coward, that either in his mind refused to or couldn't learn enough english to fit into our society. Hence, he bacame a "Loose Cannon on the Deck" and went stupid. As with the scumbag in Oakland, I hope this jerk burns for an eternity in Hell.
