Step away from the bath salts. Oops. I guess he will not be doing that again. The stupid, it burns

This was in Bath township, Michigan. I had to look because I'm close to bath schools in Lima, Ohio.

More news information on the shooting.

APD’s helicopter caught the shooting Tuesday night. They haven’t yet released the video to News 13, but Jonathan Mitchell’s family has seen it – and they say it shows the neighbor was looking for Mitchell.

Yeah, Michigan. Not Ohio.

I tell the Bath Township Police and Fire where to go. :-)

It was because of "Obamacare"

The "rats in a cage" analogy is a big part of it. In the 1950's, the population of the world was about 2 billion, if I remember correctly. Now it is over 7 billion. At least double what the Earth can comfortably support. The population of the U.S. was 160 million. Now it is 320 million. There is a resource shortage, there is little opportunity for city dwellers to just get out in the country or the woods and relax. That can put everybody on edge so the slightest stimulus can set somebody off. The "war on drugs" is a farce. The pharmaceutical whores are cranking out dangerous drugs that claim to "control" mental problems, but the tiny print contains a list of dozens of dangerous "side effects". People use the drugs to escape from reality, but they generate a reality that is nastier than their worst nightmares.
This kind of stuff was to some degree going on 60 years ago, but there was not a worldwide network of "news" media exploiting every incident for the sake of sensational headlines.

I agree. Population explosion is the real deep seated cause. The population doubles every 40 years. The "rats in a cage" is a proven scientific concept. No end or solution on sight.

Does the article even say what kind of gun Mitchell was "holding"? A handgun, a rifle, a squirt gun? It doesn't say if he threatened anybody before the SHTF, either. I hate to jump to conclusions, but it may be that the guy that shot him thought his carry permit made him a "junior sheriff". No violence occurred until he pulled up in Mitchell's driveway.
