Keeping the WTF serious today for FT Hood.
I hope this doesn’t go where I think it does.
But judging by the video of the Major in a convenience store, and the length of his shalwar kameez, I don’t think I’m wrong.
From what has come to light so far, my theory of this is that he was trying to commit “suicide by cop”. Since actual suicide is forbidden by Islam (unless you’re taking 20 or 30 people with you in your bomb vest, of course), I think he started shooting in the hope someone would kill him, so he wouldn’t have to deploy. It’s convoluted and sick, but that’s how these people are.
He also fits the profile for the kind of person who goes on rampages. A loner. Unmarried. No real success in life. A boiling cauldron of rage and indignation. Like the V-Tech shooter, and that guy who shot up an aerobics class earlier this year.
So in short, I think he did what he did for entirely selfish reasons, not because he was a dedicated jihadist. Not that that is impossible either, just not in this case.
Oh, and a very special note to Virgil Xenophon: The person who took the shooter out was a …woman. One of those useless creatures you want nothing to do with.
