But if you came in after the morning rush they would stop you to check IDs of everybody in the vehicle...I bet the shooter had a sticker due to being in the reserves, And timed it right.
He had a contractor badge from someone else that lost it a year ago was what I heard.

Keep in mind that reports will change alot in the next few days. I also heard there were 3 very different descriptions of the bad guy given ranging from black guy wearing black to white guy in olive drab military uniform. People have awful memories in emegencies.

I've read there were three suspects, one of whom was a tall black man. Another was a white man wearing an olive drab military uniform. S you prolly didn't hear conflicting reports of the same guy, but reports of two guys.

How's your wife?

Just a thought and my screwed up way of thinking but you use to never hear of shootings on a base. How many does this make since Willy disarmed virtually everyone on a base during his days as POTUS????

You bring up a good point. It's important to remember that stereotypes aren't always true, and not remembering that can lead one into big trouble. For example: if a armed citizen were in a scenario where a mass killing was happening, he or she might see a white guy with a gun and think that he was the killer and fire at them and he may have been a cop or another armed citizen, or the armed citizen may see a black guy with a gun and think that he was a cop or another armed citizen and he turns out to be the killer. Although a majority of the time the killer will be the white guy and the black guy will more likely be the cop or the armed citizen, it's never safe to assume.

Perfect. We just had our boy two weeks ago, and the girl is almost two. So we're done too.
