    Gee…..who would have EVER guessed the shooter would be black with a record as long as his arm. Enjoy 3 hots & a cot for the next 40 plus years ( courtesy of the taxpayers ) until you're deemed rehabed….. ( AGAIN )

    Why would a man who is responsible for security not be armed? That makes him little more than Barney Fife to a criminal…and it seems like even Barney carried a weapon.
