You likely heard some of Steven Spainhouer’s accounts of what he said he witnessed upon arriving on the scene of the shooting at a shopping mall in Allen, Texas on May 6th. It was a gruesome, heart-wrenching tale that the apparent former Army officer and self-proclaimed “gun lover” used to get a message out to the media. Messages like . . .
“When you get hit with an automatic weapon fire at close range, there is no opportunity for survival,” Spainhouer told MSNBC. “I don’t know what the gunman’s problem was, but it wasn’t mental health that killed these people. It was an automatic rifle with bullets.”
“I have guns. But these [high-powered rifles] have got to get off the streets or this is going to keep happening. We’ve got to stop that at some point.”
Those quotes are from a Fox News article titled “Witness who called for gun control in aftermath of Texas mall shooting lied about his actions: police”
It includes gems like this:
“Mr. Spainhouer arrived between 3:44 and 3:52 p.m. and was not first on the scene, nor was he on the property while gunfire was occurring,” the department said, adding that Spainhouer “did not perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) or administer first aid” and “did not move a deceased mother who was covering a live child.”
Ultimately, the Allen Police Department stated quite clearly that Spainhouer is not a credible witness. More info in the Fox article HERE.
