    "That's what you're supposed to do. Most heros do that, so as not to be beaten into disclosing information, that may be of use to the enemy. He was a Veteran, and felt responsible for protecting his country, from those he chose to be his enemy. What was going through his head I have no idea, but every writer has both sides of the crime to consider."

    why is the news media so focused on this murderer? we don't need to know his family history, see his upset mother, see where he lived, know about his girlfirend, see his "upset" friends, etc. the man murdered and is NOT deserving of unending photos of him on TV/other media and his life story related over and over. the victims seem to be only given passing reference. what is wrong with this picture. giving such notoriety to murderers (that includes the theatre shooting, the Arizona shooting that maimed Gabby Giffords/killed many others) only encourages copy cats! no citizen needs to own assault weapons, clips holding large amounts of bullets, body armor but no one is talking about restricting these. I have no problem with people owning guns for hunting but, with the NRA's backing, we are regressing to living in a lawless society where people shoot first. a bullet cannot be recovered once fired.

    White supremacistsit was present back in 1964 to 1969 in the US army you had a choice to ignore it, some choice to join. There were whites who a problem with back. This was during the civil rights era, the military was desecrated, but outside the military base it could be a problem for backs specially in the south, the blacks would stay on base then to go into town. I lift the Army in 1969 and move back to El Paso, TX were the temple shooter was station in the 90s, you do not see White supremacists here, but apparently on base there was activity of White supremacists aganist muslim, this has been a shock to this community were 70%-80% is Hispanic.
