Some Details About the Shooter
More breaking news on the shooting-in this case, about the shooter.
-He is obsessed with grammar (and accuses others of being “illiterate”).
-He is obsessed with the currency and is in favor of the gold/silver standard.
-He mentions the Constitution and made anti-federal statements.
-He has some odd assertions about “dreamers.”
-He does makes specific references to District 8, which certainly suggests that Giffords was his target.
He sounds truly disturbed.
