Deadly Shooting at Fort Hood

CNN.com - Breaking News, U.S., World, Weather, Entertainment & Video News

I'm hearing 2 shooters, 7 dead, and 30 wounded. This is just horrible.

They're not sure, but the gummen were wearing uniforms. Unlikely that it's terrorists, though not confirmed.

Kinda like a Full Metal Jacket deal. Apparently they have had an issue/history of over working soldiers.

Who knows. What's becoming evident is that we're having more and more domestic terrorist activity each day. This is really sad. They're saying one had an arabic sounding last name. Which will be unfortunate if it's true.

Here we are trying to deal with Afghanistan and Iraq, and our fucking soldiers aren't even safe on a U.S. military base.

Very sad. RIP.

They say an Army Major was one of the shooters that died. That's pretty high rank for a pre-planner type.

Why would it be unfortunate?

I think it'll lead to more profiling and suspicions of arabic speaking/sounding people that are U.S. citizens. But let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Good men have been shot and you're worried about fucking profiling?

You're right, I totally lost my head when I posted that. I completely regret posting that last bit and responding to 70Chip. My apologies to all in this thread and to the deceased and wounded at Fort Hood.

Please let's not politicize this thread or let this spin into something that would further dishonor the men and women involved or I'll ask the Mods to close it. Thanks guys.

And my apologies to you personally TTE. Let's just drop it and move on.
