Police across Maine were alerted just last month to 'veiled threats' by the U.S. Army reservist who would go on to carry out the worst mass shooting in the state's history, after concerns he would 'snap and commit a mass shooting'. It was just one of a string of missed red flags that preceded last week's massacre at a bowling alley. The revelations came as more than 1,000 people packed a cavernous church on Sunday night, with hundreds more spilling outside, to hug, sing, weep and seek comfort in the wake the state's most deadly mass shooting.

So he told the police what he was going to do and the government still couldn't prevent it. Seems like they want mass killing with guns to occur.

Constitutional rights cannot be forfeit based on suspicion, not action, or we all become subject to nefarious accusation and/or "thought crime" But, how do we stop the unstable from harming themselves and others? Freedom is a conundrum

Well once it becomes evident that a person is very likely to hurt or kill other people because of a mental health situation there should be a legal way as a part of due process for the medical privacy laws like HIPA to be waived and prior restraint actions like removing the person’s firearms by law enforcement could be legally enforced.

In Florida we have the Baker Act. When someone makes such a threat action is taken and the person is confined on their threats.

#2 is correct! You have to do the crime before you do the time. "Thinking about it" isn't chargeable, apparently. And considering government these days, giving it the power to punish for "thoughts" would result in gross injustice. J6 is an example.

This is usually a component of these Manchurian Candidate mass shootings. Someone always knows beforehand, usually law enforcement.

You can thank the ACLU and Clinton for stopping people who show signs of mental illnesses from being hospitalized. The ACLU claimed it is against a person’s constitutional rights to be confined to a mental hospital. Ole hound dog agreed. Many patients were released and had no place to live. So they lived on the streets. Homeless and mentally ill. So don’t go blaming cops for not doing something about Card six weeks before the massacre. Can’t put in jail. He did nothing at that time, wrong. Can’t have him admitted to a hospital. Against his rights. What I don’t understand is the guy has a therapist. Why didn’t the therapist do something?

If a person falsely yells, "Fire" in a crowded theater, that should be a crime, right? If a Congressman pulls a fire alarm when he knows there is no fire, that should be a crime, right? If a drug addict lies on his gun license application, that should be a crime, and he should never be allowed to purchase or own a gun after that. If a person tells police, "I might snap and commit a mass shooting," that should be a crime -- not a thought crime, but a threat crime. And that person -- after a fair trial -- should never be allowed to purchase or own a gun again. Can we all agree on that? If you threaten to commit a mass murder, you should not be allowed to own a firearm. If you don't agree, then I think you are letting your legitimate respect for the 2nd amendment cloud your judgement about human nature, insanity, and evil.

Forgive me. I am as freedom loving as the next person but there were a dozen red flags for this guy included previous commitment, countless threats, LE bulletins and surveillance, statements from others close to him. This isn't a random Karen calls the cops because she feels "uncomfortable." THIS GUY was schizophrenic and untreated and thus a "risk to himself and others." He should have been brought in on a 72 hour psych, then adjudicated thus, and institutionalized for a prolonged period to get him stable and on meds. And yes, the guns should have been taken away.

An Israeli airstrike on Hamas targets Tuesday who had taken over civilian buildings in the northern Gaza Strip appears to have killed several terrorists — and caused underground tunnels to collapse, apparently expanding the initial damage caused by the strike. News reports Tuesday claimed, citing Hamas’s notorious health ministry, that 400 people had been killed and wounded in an airstrike on the Jabaliya neighborhood in Gaza, known officially as a “refugee camp,” though it consists of multi-story buildings. Hamas later downgraded the estimated number of casualties to 200 — 50 dead, it said, and 150 wounded. Photos showed a scene of collapsed buildings,

Over the past few years, we have been lectured to by professed scientists to “follow the science,” echoed by the corporate media that often sees financial gain in following particular views of science. For example, Pfizer is alleged to sponsor 15 television news shows, a sure fire way to get their version of “the science” (and their products) out to the masses. Much of the COVID dogma broadcast by the medical establishment and health authorities turned out to be wrong, from masks and lockdowns to vaccine efficacy and safety. Yet these views could not be challenged without threat of losing one’s employment or licensure, in the case of health care workers

Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday if President Joe Biden believes pro-Palestine protesters are “extremists.” Anti-Israeli protests have soared across the U.S. since the Oct. 7 attack on Israel launched by Hamas, an Islamic terrorist group. A handful of protestors have chanted antisemitic slurs, held up swastikas and blamed Israel for the deadly attack. “Does President Biden think the anti-Israel protesters in this country are extremists?” Doocy asked. “What I can say, is we’ve been very clear on this.

What dominates the mass media is often fleeting importance for the enduring political landscape. Nevertheless, some events can harbinger momentous changes despite their initial ordinary nature. A particularly telling example was the initial shift of small number of White Southern Democrats into the Republican Party in 1964, a little-noticed event that foretold the shift of nearly all Southern Whites into the GOP. Such shifts are tectonic insofar as they may eventually fundamentally change the political landscape. We may now be experiencing a tectonic shift of major magnitude, namely the exodus of Jews from liberalism.

The U.S. doesn't plan to send in troops to aid in the conflict between Israel and Hamas on the ground level, Vice President Kamala Harris said on Sunday. Meanwhile, new House Speaker Mike Johnson plans to bring a standalone bill to the floor this week that would provide monetary aid to Israel in its ongoing conflict with Hamas terrorists. Hamas terrorists based in the Palestinian enclave of Gaza invaded Israel earlier this month in a surprise, multi-front attack that led to the largest single-day massacre of Jewish people since the Holocaust.

Col. Richard Hecht confirmed to CNN that the Israeli military had launched the strike, and said it was targeting a senior commander from the Hamas militant group.

It comes days after it emerged China plans to double its arsenal of nuclear warheads to over 1,000 by 2030. America's proposed new B61-13 nuclear gravity bomb would be dropped from aircraft including the $692 million B-21 Raider stealth bomber, which is currently in development. Gravity bombs are unguided but the new one would have a tail kit helping with targeting and making it more accurate.

“This machine cannot be stopped,” declared Israeli defense minister Yoav Gallant earlier today. At the very least, Israel will not stop the IDF, now fully unleashed in Gaza, short of total victory. Instead, Gallant offered Hamas a different deal, which sounds remarkably like Hamas’ true ‘offer’ to the Israelis. “Die or surrender” sums both up nicely, no? This is the same ‘deal’ that Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran have offered Israel for decades. It’s the same deal that the other Arab nations offered between 1947 and roughly 1979, too. For the last sixteen years, Israel has hoped that withdrawal from Gaza might moderate those enemies similarly as Egypt and Jordan moderated
