#1 So, plenty of warnings online. They can decide who is engaging in "hate speech" but they couldn't clue the cops about this guy? Color me stone cold skeptical. OTOH, they are all in favor of "red flag laws" where almost anybody can tell a judge you are a dangerous person who needs his / her rights summarily taken away without due process. Got it...

#3 Armed with an AR yet inflicted no casualties. Taken out by pistols. Remember that when gun grabbers go after ARs.

#4 On the front page of the Dallas News, but I couldn't find their article online. A number of articles on-line look like they have identical lead paragraphs.

Unexpectedly.

#5 Also this attacker was totally stupid in target selection. Each entrance has 6 armed feds standing behind a huge metal detecting apparatus larger than the ones at the airports. That allows for them plenty of protective cover to return fire immediately without having to retreat to cover. I am sure all 6 spayed his ass good.
In the video from the reporter caught in the action you here the responding cops trying to stop the guys leaks as he lay in the parking ĺot say, "There is another one?"

#6 The half dozen armed guys at the doors running the metal detector machines are almost always 100% African American middle aged guys who probably never thought theyed get to shoot their guns. They are serious about making sure nothing gets past the medal detecting conveyors. A lot of people come through. IRS Customer Service, Social Security Customer Service, Federal Courts are in there and the US Marshal Servïce.

I am going to dread going back in there again. Those middle aged armed metal detector guys are going to be extra coky now that they finaĺly got to shoot someone.

#7 Everyone in the building will be proud of them though. Those guys did good.

#11 That's how I read it. Tortured soul seeking to go out. Yet for his final act, he seeks out not only a hard target but perhaps the most hardened target of all.

In any case, I'm glad it didn't hurt anybody.

#12 Indeed. A federal courthouse in Texas... I can't imagine anything less than a whole strike force getting in there, and nobody would get out. I wonder if he ever really "meant" to kill anybody at some basic level as opposed to trying to off himself without pulling the trigger.
