Shooting at Family Research Council

Post  Progurt on Wed Aug 15, 2012 5:21 pm

Security guard shot at Family Research Council in downtown D.C.
A security guard at the Family Research Council was shot and wounded Wednesday morning after a scuffle with a man who expressed disagreement with the group’s conservative views in the lobby of the group’s headquarters in downtown Washington, authorities said.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said the shooter walked into the lobby of the building at about 10:45 and was confronted by the security guard as if the guard were asking him where he was going.

The man then took out a gun and opened fire on the guard, Lanier said. The guard and others wrestled the man to the ground, disarmed him and waited for police, she said. The guard was then taken to the hospital and is in stable condition, the chief said. FBI officials said the guard was shot in the arm.

“The security guard here is a hero, as far as I’m concerned,” Lanier said. ”He did his job. The person never made it past the front.”

The shooter is in FBI custody and has not yet been charged, authorities said. A law enforcement official said at one point in the scuffle, the shooter expressed views that differed from those of the Family Research Council. The official also said the shooter was carrying a bag that had a Chick-Fil-A bag inside. Chick-Fil-A’s chief executive has expressed similar views against same-sex marriage as the Research Council.
Well, fuck.

America just needs to see a psychiatrist.

The shitheads on right- wing radio and FAUX NEWZ will be screaming " Ahhh! The leftists are going to kill us!" while just yesterday they were giving their drones the " the Left are a bunch of latte- drinking, Prius driving pussies" line.
Doublethink, baby. Everyday.

That would make a good slogan.

You can tell this was a shooting by a leftist because nobody was killed.

Presented for comparative purposes, and the numbers have only gone up.

This kind of event is a very different experience when I understand so personally the anger and despair that might have driven this man to such an act. It makes me even more sad for the state of things.

Psychiatrist no... Psychologist and social workers...yes.

No pill is going to stop what ails this country and sadly, that is what most psychiatrists are about these days. We need to rework and re-imagine the ways we relate to each other. We need a deeper understanding of what drives our behaviors. I am not talking about touchy feely therapies but of sociological and psychological understanding mixed with practical applications of information on how to approach solutions. It is a daunting task, but we need to stop all this violence before it becomes so common place that we just shrug and go about our business.

Soma. Granted it doesn't really fix the problem, it just makes it to where you just don't care.

I don't remember if the pill existed prior to Huxley, or if it took its name from the novel. That stuff will clean your clock if you aren't careful.

Brave new world 1932 first medical discussion on would become Soma 1959. The real world version is much more boring. If you've ever seen equilibrium, that drug would work nicely.
