And we've already hopped on the religious bashing bandwagon...I wonder why I keep having faith in the human race sometimes.

Why even have faith? We're apparently all gonna try to kill one another at some point (if the behaviour of many dumb shits worldwide is any indication) so why even put trust in us as a species?

I don't know I guess I keep hoping the more sane and positive aspects of humanity's psyche will win out. Recent events have shown this not to be the case but hope springs eternal they say. And hope and faith seem a better plan then climbing a clock tower with Cassandra ya dig.

Have they officially ruled out 'workplace violence' for this 'mishap' yet?

You keep on making that reference, but I don't know what it's in reference to. My first thought was that it was referring to Cassandra, the princess of Troy, but I think clock towers were a little bit past her time.

And yeah, hope is cool. Blue Lanterns can attest to that.

Scroll down for the English version.

That's all we know at the moment and it's likely that there won't be any important new information until the press conference.

Cassandra, it's the name of my C14 Timberwolf MRSW aka my military grade sniper rifle. She's chambered in .415 PGW ( it's a conversion kit she was originally in .338 Lapua Magnum). And she was named by my old warrant officer back when I was regular forces. Apparently the thing reminded her of her old girlfriend..I didn't ask though it seemed a juicy story

Ooohhh okay. If it's a sniper rifle then I guess assuming the name refers to the Trojan princess actually makes sense lol.

Wel... I obviously expect you to have gotten that story out of her at some point. Seems to good to pass up on.

I thank you for the more thoughtful re-post.

Sadly, a couple of others failed to take this request seriously. I've deleted those posts which will likely result in a few subsequent posts being displayed out of order due to that forum bug we are all pretty used to, but still annoyed by.

Well I did find out one titbit. This Cassandra ( the ex girlfriend not the rifle ) was a "biter" if you know what I mean. And the C14 does have some kick to it. Though I don't know the validity of the "biter" thing as it was an Logistics Officer that told me that. And we all know supply like to trump their own horn.

Merry religion of peace diverse Christmas!

What a tradedy. So terrible so close to Christmas. It would be regardless of that but that fact makes it even worse.

was the perp on terror watch lists and shown to be in constant communication with certain security agencies not too long before the act?


further review, nope

fishiest thing seems to be the dead passenger

semis arent easy to drive, most people cant just get in them and up and drive it......which might be why the guy crashed it so quickly.

(but if that's the case then that kinda indicates the dead man is some sort of plant to make it terrorism....but hey, that's why you flood the place with illegal immigrants before doing these sorts of things, then people cant even tell if its a copycat or if its the federal security services doing it.)
