He was arrested before in Dallas Texas for discharging a firearm in the city limit. Aaron Alexis was in the Navy “ready reserve” and was a petty officer. He had a job at the Navy Yard as a contractor. Allegedly he was fired, and that would be a possible motive.
But, what is the talk about another shooter? Is that conjecture? On what evidence is that based? Answering that is a very important, of course, because it means the difference between a lone mass killed and a conspiracy.
The FBI is “seeking tips,” how about digging into the what are sure to be public records and facts from friends, neighbors, and employer?
What about his Navy training service and record? He didn’t just arrive out the blue.
From what appeared all day long is that our security and law enforcement gets spun up big time after an incident, while there are huge holes in security in between. Of course, there is an enormous issue about guns in America. It is out of control.
