Click here for a full recap on how the Navy Yard shooting unfolded on Monday
FBI officials have released the first photos of Aaron Alexis, deceased, who they say is the shooter that went on a rampage killing 12 individuals early Monday morning at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C.
Alexis served in the U.S. Navy Reserves as an Aviations Electrician for four years, enlisting in New York in May 2007 and being discharged in January 2011, according to the U.S. Navy.
Watch the press conference where the FBI identified the shooter as Aaron Alexis:
The picture, displayed below, shows Alexis, according to the FBI. It was not immediately clear when the photo was taken.
Chris Childs, director of TheBlaze TV’s “The Pat & Stu Show,” told us he frequently visited the Thai restaurant Alexis worked at in Fort Worth, and got to know him over time.
“The thing that really struck me was the fact that he was really big into the shooter video games,” Childs told TheBlaze. “We would talk about all kinds of stuff… I know the family that owns the Thai restaurant is devastated because they can’t imagine that he would do this. I can’t imagine it.”
Childs also said Alexis seemed like an “extremely normal guy.” He said the deceased shooter also spoke about his “out of the blue” visit to Thailand.
Further, Seattle Police said Alexis was arrested in 2004 for “shooting out the tires of another man’s vehicle in what Alexis later described to detectives as an anger-fueled blackout.’” He was booked in the King County Jail for malicious mischief.
On May 6, 2004, two construction workers saw Alexis “pull a gun from his waistband and fire three shots into the two rear tires of their Honda,” according to Seattle Police. The workers apparently told police he had been upset over the parking situation nearby and had “stared” construction workers down every day over the past month.
Alexis told police he had been “mocked” by the workers and had an anger-fueld “blackout.” Seattle Police also say he told them he was present during the 9/11 terrorist attacks and explained “how those events had disturbed him.”
Seattle detectives talked to Alexis’ father, who said he suffered from anger management problems associated with PTSD.
Alexis was also arrested in September 2010 for accidentally discharging a firearm, according to a police report obtained by KXAS-TV. However, the documents reportedly indicate he was never officially charged.Read More>http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013...-aaron-alexis/

Question: There is now speculation on how someone with the mental history and alleged history of violence can get clearance to work at this Navy yard. How much do you think affirmative action played into it?The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

In "What Buddhist Believe," the Venerable Dhammananda wrote,
"Buddhists should not be the aggressors even in protecting their religion or anything else. They must try their best to avoid any kind of violent act. Sometimes they may be forced to go to war by others who do not respect the concept of the brotherhood of humans as taught by the Buddha. They may be called upon to defend their country from external aggression, and as long as they have not renounced the worldly life, they are duty-bound to join in the struggle for peace and freedom. Under these circumstances, they cannot be blamed for becoming soldiers or being involved in defence. However, if everyone were to follow the advice of the Buddha, there would be no reason for war to take place in this world. It is the duty of every cultured person to find all possible ways and means to settle disputes in a peaceful manner, without declaring war to kill his or her fellow human beings."
Basically, Buddhism counsels peaceful coexistence, but not suicidal pacifism. And, of course a paranoid schizophrenic's interpretation of Buddhism is likely to contain some non-doctrinal ideas.
