Where was it? Oh yeah. On a flier. Reply Matt in FL says: September 16, 2013 at 16:10 How’s he make his head expand and contract like that? Reply JAlan says: September 16, 2013 at 16:17 You can ask Barry Bonds. He seems to know the secret. Reply Jeremy S says: September 16, 2013 at 16:43 And shouldn’t “hair” be N/A? haha Reply BillF says: September 16, 2013 at 16:57 I thought the one on the left had a giant turquoise afro. Reply A-train says: September 17, 2013 at 10:09 I see his forehead, so it would be a Halffro. Bill says: September 16, 2013 at 16:10 Well, I’m just glad he wasn’t some white dude or all the sudden this would be all about anti-government, Alex Jones, Tea Party, etc, etc. Reply Ross says: September 16, 2013 at 16:13 Oh don’t worry about that my friend, they will find a way to spin it. Reply Robert M says: September 16, 2013 at 16:16 Unless it is a terrorist attack then it will get called Work Place Violence and sweep under the rug. Thanks Robert Reply gloomhound says: September 16, 2013 at 16:21 Might just be “Work Place Violence.” This time. Bill says: September 16, 2013 at 16:41 http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/09/16/active-shooter-at-washington-navy-yard at the 3:15 update it explains that he was seen taking the AR-15 from the cop he shot Reply NYC2AZ says: September 16, 2013 at 17:07 Interesting if true. Then the press (by a pure lazy reporting accident) would actually have a mass shooting with an “assault rifle/machine gun/bullet spraying death machine” (last one to be found on motherjones no doubt). Side note that nobody is going to hear in the news, if this guy was a contractor, he would have had to go through much more than a NICS background check for even a basic security clearance. Not that those facts will get in the way of a good “we could have prevented this tragedy if (insert ineffective law here) wasn’t obstructed by the evil baby-killing NRA” comment from our fact-reporting “news” outlets.

Let’s all assume nothing, shall we? Reply Blue says: September 17, 2013 at 09:45 You mean like the Santa Monica, Ft. Hood, and Va Tech shooters? Oh wait . . . Reply Brooklyn in da house says: September 16, 2013 at 16:13 Are those 2 pictures of the same guy? Reply Old Ben turning in grave says: September 16, 2013 at 16:20 Doesn’t look like the same guy at all. Reply Ing says: September 16, 2013 at 16:22 Maybe this is why there were so many reports of two shooters. Reply Cliff H says: September 16, 2013 at 16:27 First one probably from a very cheap mug-shot camera with a wider lens. Makes his head (and nose) look wider than they should. Wild ass guess. Reply Chris Mallory says: September 16, 2013 at 16:30 The lighting used for mug shots often makes the skin look lighter as well. I would guess the right hand picture is a military ID picture. He looks like he has lost some weight, boot camp will do that. Reply Jus Bill says: September 16, 2013 at 20:09 If he was Navy it was probably his ID picture. Jozan says: September 16, 2013 at 16:20 Texas Skinhead. Reply Blue says: September 17, 2013 at 09:45 lmao Reply ensitue says: September 16, 2013 at 16:24 No photo of the second Blk suspect: 50 YO, 5′ 10″, 180 pounds, Long Grey Sideburns. Green clothes and a Berret. Hard to spot that on a surveillance tape Reply Jus Bill says: September 16, 2013 at 20:09 Just described half of DC. Reply spacecoaster says: September 16, 2013 at 16:30 “Aspect Ratio” – It is so important in image editing… I am going to go out on a limb here and guess that there is no other shooter. This was just one pissed off dude, and a lot of hysteria. Not unlike the Sandy Hook reporting. Remember the guy in the woods wearing camo? It seems damn near impossible to get a straight story when chaos is ensuing. Reply ron smith says: September 16, 2013 at 16:32 Idiots. wtf. Maybe ccw permits will be issued in these new found victim zones.. Reply MurrDog says: September 16, 2013 at 16:34 You know what would stop to things like this? Concealed or even open carry on a military base for all service members and not just mp’s. Reply PeterZ in West Tennessee says: September 17, 2013 at 11:57 Don’t leave us trained and willing civilian employees out. Reply Andy says: September 16, 2013 at 16:44 Murrdog you are 100% correct,this is another Gun Free Zone shooting,when are they gonna wise up?Never goes against the antigun agenda,Boobama will probably come out with more antigun propaganda.Be prepared and ready.Keep your powder dry. Reply tdiinva says: September 16, 2013 at 16:56 The Washington Navy Yard isn’t exactly a classic gun free zone. Unlike the local mall there are guys with guns all over the place. Gun free means no one is armed. If it is true that Alexis shot a guard and took his weapons then this not going to be a good case for good guys with guns stopping bad guys with guns. But it certainly isn’t going to be a good case for gun control either. Reply Chase says: September 16, 2013 at 16:46 He’s not from Texas, he’s from New York. Reply ensitue says: September 16, 2013 at 16:56 Brooklyn Reply Alan Rose says: September 16, 2013 at 16:55 http://hamptonroads.com/2013/09/former-petty-officer-kills-12-washington-navy-yard “Cmdr. Timothy Jirus said he has a clearance that would allow him to carry a gun on the campus.” So here’s a non-cop who says he can legally carry a gun at the D.C. Navy yard. Interesting. Does this clearance also allow him to carry it through the District, where to do so would be illegal? Reply tdiinva says: September 16, 2013 at 17:06 Unless the LCDR is prior enlisted with Master-at-Arms rating he has no right to carry on any base. A security clearance means jack. I had clearances this guy never heard of and I was not allowed to carry. The only people who can carry on an everyday basis are MAA in an MAA billet. If you are doing tour in some not LE field you can’t carry. Reply Jus Bill says: September 16, 2013 at 20:13 With all due respect, the LCDR is full of ****. Reply Mark N. says: September 16, 2013 at 17:03 Grammar Nazi: Shouldn’t the headline be, “DID you know this man?” Reply Greg says: September 16, 2013 at 17:33 Another military personnel involved in a shooting spree and mass homicide….. clearly we need to take guns from soldiers….. Right. Reply Jay1987 says: September 16, 2013 at 17:41 Hey i seen that guy he’s that dead guy that shot up the Washington Naval Yard and i think he played Pennywise in IT the book not the movie Reply geoffb says: September 16, 2013 at 17:43 Feinstein cries “First!” Reply JAS says: September 16, 2013 at 17:51 There was shooting at the white house just now. Fox news is reporting. Reply JAS says: September 16, 2013 at 17:53 Secret service now saying it was firecrackers….. Reply Jus Bill says: September 16, 2013 at 20:15 Some idiot in a suit throwing firecrackers through the fence. Wish it was Feinstein. Reply Frodo says: September 16, 2013 at 18:00 Sen. Dianne Feinstein needs to get her facts straight before running off at the mouth. The news is reporting the shooter started with a shotgun then used weapons he took from security personal he shot to continue his rampage meaning to me anyway any assault rifles used belonged to security personal the shooter shot. Reply Alan Rose says: September 16, 2013 at 18:13 Buy a shotgun … buy a shotgun Reply Aharon says: September 16, 2013 at 19:00 He’s obviously a member of the super-secret radical-Constitutional pro-liberty pro- Bill of Rights pro-gun group known as The Black Iced-Tea-Bag Drinkers. Reply Rank Hank says: September 16, 2013 at 19:04 He is Obummers son. Reply Mike says: September 16, 2013 at 19:20 He’s insane, he can’t have a gun. Reply Craig M. says: September 16, 2013 at 20:33 The Seattle PD knows him pretty well: http://spdblotter.seattle.gov/2013/09/16/suspect-in-navy-yard-attack-previously-arrested-in-seattle-for-anger-fueled-shooting/ Reply anon says: September 16, 2013 at 20:48 I’m retired Civil Service. When the government does a background check, they (OPM) send out questionnaires to at least 3 people asking about the applicant (either for a federal job or as a contractor). The paperwork asks the recepient to be honest but then warns you that any information you provide about the applicant (including derogatory info) will be passed the the applicant. A SSSLLLLOOOOWWWWW person would realize that we are talking lawsuit so no one says anything bad about the applicant. How do I know that? There is no one at home at OPM or the background check people. I’ve known people whose backgroudn check was 10 months in coming. They were hired and NOT allowed to access the computer system as they had no clearance. How dumb is that? Politically correct is costing people their lives but who cares. Thank Clinton for no weapons on military bases. The shooting at Ft Hood is classified as a workplace violence incident and not a terrorist incident. Probably because someone in high places hates this country. Reply tdiinva says: September 17, 2013 at 08:29 There are two types of background checks for a security clearance. The National Agency Check Investigation or NACI and the Single Scope Background Investigation or SSBI To get a Secret Clearance all you need is a NACI. The NACI is a slightly more inclusive NICS type check. The references are handled the same as a standard employment reference — not very thoroughly. Basically all you need to do to get a secret clearance is fog a mirror and not have a record beyond a speeding ticket. Top secret, SCI or caveated [black] program requires an SSBI. That is a whole different animal. You fill out an extensive questionnaire, people get interviewed and some cases you get a counterintelligence and/or lifestyle polygraph. The process takes up 6-12 months. Sometimes you can get an interim top secret if your agency has a history on you and the SSBI is underway and nothing has come to light yet. Reply Mark N. says: September 16, 2013 at 22:24 I find it endlessly amusing that after all day saying that the gunman was armed with an “assault weapon,” this evenings report on NBCNews.com, reporting that he had relieved an officer of the firearm, referred to it as a “rifle.” So if the cops or the military use it, even if it is a full auto M4 (and this seems to have been), it is just a “rifle,” but if a civilian buys one, it is an “assault weapon.” The sad part is that they seem to have the gun banners fooled. Reply SDFreeman says: September 17, 2013 at 00:35 Well if BO had a son he would look just like Aaron Alexis Reply Angry AZ says: September 17, 2013 at 07:32 You mean if BO had a son who had lived through his drug smoking, hoodie wearing, fight picking teen years then he definitely would have shot up a naval base / or any other facility most likely. Reply A-Rod says: September 17, 2013 at 07:39 Alex was old enough to be his brother, not his son. Let’s just say that Mr. Obama’s brother went on a shooting rampage.
