    He handled that perfectly..........

    What a bizarre situation for family members..............especially if the suspect wasn't particularly leaning any sort of way politically or idealogically.............as his brother said

    ^He did.. and yet reporters somehow wanted him to say something dramatic.. he did well... not forgetting he just lost his brother too! Imagine losing your brother and knowing he killed that many people and tried to kill many more...

    Well, I do think it is important to get as much information as possible
    If they had known if he had any affiliations or leanings

    Though that's the job of the police... and he'd spent all morning with them... go on... tell us what you didn't tell the police...

    Islamic State will take credit regardless...

    I just didn't think the questioning was that intrusive or over-the-line

    And yes, it sucks for his family to be thrust into this............but at least they aren't mourning a victim

    No, not a victim.. They are mourning a brother and a son without understanding and unable to say anything positive on his life even at the funeral..
    They will be looked and frowned upon by their community for the rest of their lives...

    I know and that is why I was the 1st to mention how bizarre this all must be for them

    But I'd still want to be in their position than a family member of the victims

    It absolutely sucks for his family, who did nothing to be dragged into this..............


    And to be honest, no matter how unexpected his violence was............I wouldn't struggle that I couldn't think positively about my brother after he did something so heinous
    My thoughts on him would always being negative..........the positive is wiped away

    I hope they find out why... if his dad was a psychopathic criminal as claimed by the Mail... then maybe he suffered some sort of mental episode? Then again everyone is guessing at this stage. Could be anything... it mentions possible large gambling losses too...

    The question that keeps bugging me is how it can be possible in a civilized nation to such a thing..

    What I read describes an arsenal that he took into a Hotel/casino..
    Meaning a place with tight security and trained receptionists and bell-boys that know what a suitcase should weigh..
    He must have shown signals like those of a cheating gambler and it must have been noticed the amount of weight he carried in his luggage?

    Of course apart from the fact that any fool can but Assault weapons "for his defense.."...

    Just saw your fool-in-chief doing his second grade reading assignment from a teleprompter..
    Some fairy-tail about how many lives the police saved and a lot about god and praying.. Hard to believe that religious patriot is the same guy who only last week told Puerto-Ricans to go fuck themselves..
    He would have failed his reading assignment in my class.. totally unconvincing..

    ..
    I think it's unrealistic to expect hotel workers to be trained in such matters
    10 guns in a big suitcase that is rolled by yourself would be easy to bring into a hotel looking like a normal bag

    It has happened in the UK... but not for 20 years... and there was that Norwegian guy... but not sure why the US has so many gun-related mass killings?

    150,000 people shot dead in the last 5 years... incredible really...
