Another case of 'workplace violence' in Fort Hood?

Update:

When Nidal Hasan screamed ‘allahu akbar’ and murdered his fellow soldiers, (dirty kafirs for him) Hussein Obama termed this Islamic terrorist attack – workplace violence.  Complete lunacy.

Tomorrow’s headlines today: Muslims fear ‘backlash’ from todays Fort Hood attack

USA Today:

A soldier killed three people and wounded 16 others before shooting himself to death Wednesday at Fort Hood, the same Texas base that was the scene of the worst attack on a domestic U.S. military installation five years ago, officials said.

U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas told reporters that the suspected shooter is Spc. Ivan Lopez.

Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, head of the Army’s III Corps at the post, said the shooter was a veteran of combat in Iraq who had “mental health issues and was being treated for that.”

“At this time there is no indication that this incident is related to terrorism, although we are not ruling anything out and the investigation continues,” Milley said.

He said 16 people were wounded in the shooting attack. All those wounded and killed were military personnel, Milley said.

Milley said the shooter walked into a building on the post and opened fire around 4 p.m., then got into a car, fired more shots and then went to another building shooting before he was engaged by responding military police. His body was recovered in a parking lot, he said.

“He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Milley said.

The suspect used a .45-caliber semi-automatic weapon purchased recently in the local area, Milley said. The suspect had not registered it with the post as required, he said.

Milley said the suspect was undergoing “psychiatric treatment for depression and anxiety and a variety of other psychological” problems. He said the soldier was undergoing a diagnosis process to determine if he had post-traumatic stress disorder, but had not been diagnosed with it.

Milley said the gunman was not wounded in action, according to military records, though he said there are reports the soldier “self-diagnosed” a traumatic brain injury from Iraq.

“We’re heartbroken something like this might have happened again,” President Obama said in Chicago, after being briefed on the events.

The post was locked down and personnel directed to “shelter in place.” The lockdown was lifted Wednesday night.

Glen Couchman, chief medical officer at Scott and White Hospital in Temple, said the first four people admitted there had gunshots to chest, abdomen, neck and extremities and that their conditions range from stable to “quite critical.”

Fort Hood was the post where 13 died and more than 30 were wounded in the deadliest domestic military attack in U.S. history.

Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan was convicted and sentenced to death last year in the Nov. 5, 2009, attack on his fellow soldiers as they waited inside a crowded building at Fort Hood. Soldiers there were waiting to get vaccines and routine paperwork after recently returning from deployments or while preparing to go to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, speaking to reporters while in Honolulu to host a conference of Southeast Asian defense leaders, called the shootings a “terrible tragedy.” Asked about security improvements in the wake of other shootings at U.S. military bases, Hagel said, “Obviously when we have these kinds of tragedies on our bases, something’s not working.”

  1. Yes, theresaj that is indeed the commonality-antidepressants.

    But, the media or the government are not interested in investigating this link and it’s relevancy to gun violence. Because than they would be without a seemingly legitimate platform in which to chip away at the 2nd amendment private gun ownership.

    You may not be aware, but it is not just antidepressants that can cause serious mental harm, but other drugs like the cessation smoking drug called Chantix in the US, below is a link that lists it’s disturbing side effects,

    Additionally, the Chantix TV ad that runs in the US, used to have a disclaimer that said, something like “if you are having suicidal thoughts or may harm others, contact your doctor right away.”

    Here is their ad, notice the suicidal disclaimers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hp_y0wDFz0

    Lastly, an important and curious point of interest relating to the relevancy of psychotropic drugs and mass shootings that have suddenly occurred in in the last twenty years to ponder. Is the curious event of the 4 January 2013, it is the day that vocal critic and rifle manufacture, John Noveske, allegedly died in an automobile accident that involved only his car. Curiously, the accident occurred just days after he was very vocal about the fact that involved in almost all of the mass shootings in the US was the undeniable fact that almost all of the shooters were on or had recently been on psychotropic drugs. The names of the shooters and the drugs they were on can be attributed to Noveske’s posted research, now hard to find.

    Here is a link of the shooters and the known drugs they were all on.
