The rash of shootings continue. Just saw that one cop KIA, one in extremely critical condition. Just got passed on H1 east by multiple HPD POVs and a HFD command center van.

The guy had a history of mental illness and was cited for calling 911 several times because he believed that there were government agents stalking him. There is a video of cops giving him a ticket where he is clearly intoxicated or mentally unbalanced and has no idea what is going on. We have no system when it comes to mental health other than let them run around loose on the street like feral animals until they get run over by a car or die of staph infections. The only reason this guy was not on the street was because of the kindness of the lady who he stabbed.

It doesn't matter.
We're all going to pay the price for the government's incompetence in dealing with mental illness.

God bless our police officers and emergency responders.  They do a great job.

News articles are stating he may have used the ever dreadful AR15 "assault rifle." Watch the local political scum use this as an excuse for more California like restrictions.

They're already calling for the outright ban on modern sporting rifles with SB 2626
No one is coming, it’s up to us.

Legislation should never be about depriving law abiding citizens of something, but rather taking those things away from criminals.

I know. I'm just saying the DemoncRATS will use this event as a prime example why they need to pass their unconstitutional bullshit. The house is still smoldering and they're going to cite this a reason why there's a moral imperative to cede more of our rights to these authoritarians.

The big question is whether there was enough information to have kept him confined. Was there nothing that could have been done or did the system fail somewhere?

Could something have been done by "the system?"

YES

Could something have been done by "the system" without violating the civil rights of everyone else who didn't kill anyone today, but who happens to fit the criteria they pretend predicted this one man would become violent?

NO

It takes training and skill to shoot two people in the head. Doesn't sound like it occurred up close. I wonder what his background was. The videos of him show that he has difficulty operating a pen, let alone a knife and a rifle.

Have to wait for more details before making any judgments on skill level.

At this point, it's just your/our imagination at work.

It doesn't take much imagination to know that it would be very difficult for an amateur to make those shots. Of course, Oswald seemed to have managed it, allegedly.

Seems like he was under the influence in the body cam footage where he's getting the citation.  Maybe that's just how he is.  In either case, the guy is obviously not well, or a very good actor.  From reports of his neighbors, I would tend to believe the former. 

And so much that isn't known at this point and we may never know.  Like mentioned above, rational folks tend to wait until more details and facts are known before jumping to conclusions.
