    Unbelievable.

    Yeah, just reading on it. Very much so. Hopefully they can find the person who did this.

    Evidently the cameraman was engaged and his fiance was a producer. Today was the last day for her producing the show, and he was going to follow her.

    Now they're saying the gunman is a former reporter who says he filmed the shooting and put it on Facebook along with some twitter posts about what happened.

    Edit: now I've read he attempted suicide after the shooting.

    There are two videos out there. One he walks up to the crew doing the report, and pulls out the gun... the 2nd video is him shooting them.

    It's a messed up world. It's always been.

    Black employee who claimed he was dissed, drove away after shooting, chased by cops, and crashed. Found with critical gunshot wounds.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Yep. The **** filmed HIMSELF shooting her.

    Mad he was fired, said it was because he was gay and black.

    SDD is the bullet.

    I've got a lightly used Super-8 one that I would contribute for just the shipping costs*.





    *That would be hand-delivery, by me, in good fishing season.

    Actually, I'd like to meet Hextall someday, I gravitate towards twisted humor.

    Remember he wants a good whiskey poured over his grave after internment.

    You might want to filter it through your kidneys, first.

    An immaculate conception from Father Flanagans' long lost son, twin brother Jester from yet another mother instead of Vester's ? The facial hair is so indicative.......
