“The suspect in the Antioch movie theater attack is Vincente Montano, 29, according to law enforcement officials.
Late Wednesday, police released information describing Montano as a man with a background of arrests and commitments for mental health issues in recent years.
Police spokesman Don Aaron said in a 7:45 p.m. press conference that Montano had been arrested on an assault charge in Murfreesboro in 2004. Montano had been committed for mental health care a total of four times, in 2004 and 2007, he said. He had also been reported as a missing person Aug. 3, Aaron said. …”
Here’s what I wrote on June 19th:
“And you know what? Next time there is a rampage shooting (Abdulazeez), and the next time after that (Houser), and the next time after that (Montano) … and talking heads wonder aloud about the “root causes” of “the sickness in America,” the same deadly cocktail of expressive individualism, fantasy ideology, and mental illness will rear its ugly head. When the next self righteous narcissist walks down the catwalk of the 24/7 cable news media, only the details will be different.
Oh, and that Confederate flag … that’s just a small, irrelevant detail.”
There, fixed it.
Oh wait, it sounds like James Holmes, Jared Loughner, Rusty Houser, Adam Lanza, Seung-Hui Cho, Dylann Roof, Elliot Rodger, Mohammad Abudalzeez, Andreas Lubitz and all the rest who were either crazy or had serious issues.
How do we blame this on the Confederate flag?
Note: The dude had a pellet gun! He fired it at the police!
