Terrible business in DC. Appears to be a disgruntled employee type, akin to the LA Cop, Chris Dorner, or any of the number of other workplace shooters out there, who are usually steamed about being fired for some kind of integrity violation. We still have a lot to learn, including if there was another gunman. That said, the one thing I know for certain is that we won’t hear from President Barack Obama contributing to national healing by stating that if he had a son, he’d look like Aaron Alexis.
I bring this up not because this type of crime is peculiar to one race. It’s clearly not. But because it shows the impoverished moral imagination and selective sympathies of our president, who gets all hyped up about the Trayvon Martins of the world, that is to say self-defeating thugs who are the “victims” of cops and vigilant citizens, even when he treats his central job functions–national defense and foreign affairs–as afterthoughts.
