(07-18) 17:59 PDT Oakland -- A 45-year-old parolee, described by his mother as angry at left-wing politicians, opened fire on California Highway Patrol officers on an Oakland freeway early Sunday and was hit by return fire while wearing body armor, authorities said.
Just another angry man, a random act of senseless violence... Well, not exactly.
Williams' mother, Janice Williams of Groveland, said her son had been living next door and taking care of her father's house and land. She said he had been released from prison about 2 1/2 years ago after a felony conviction, which she declined to describe, and had almost completed his parole.
"He hasn't been able to get a job because he's an ex-felon and nobody will hire him," she said.
She said her son, who had been a carpenter and a cabinetmaker before his imprisonment, was angry about his unemployment and about "what's happening to our country."
Williams watched the news on television and was upset by "the way Congress was railroading through all these left-wing agenda items," his mother said.
Yeah, cuz the employment situation is entirely the LEFT WINGs fault? Gee, I wonder what News Station he could have been watching?
Exactly at what point do we start admitting that these guys are far more dangerous than one loud mouthed Neuvo Black Panther?
Is Fox News going to spend hour after hour after hour talking about how this guy is an example of a growing danger to our nation? Or about how he may be part of an epidemic of self-destructive hopelessness (including a rise in suicides, particularly in the Gulf states area) that has begun to grip the nation as the economy continues to stagnate?
Are they going to argue after 2 and 1/2 years of unemployment he must have simply not being TRYING HARD ENOUGH to get a job, or was spoiled by his past expectations so that now he was just aiming too high?
After the Pittsburgh Cop Shooting, the Holocaust Museum Attack, the Hutaree Militia - when is the media going to start wondering when these people are going to stop shooting at COPS - and start shooting at (Left-Wing) Lawmakers, or do they only think these things are serious when they're perpetrated by Muslims, rather than Right-Wing Christians?
Is Sarah (Shakes) Palin going to utterly Refudiate this type of assault on law and order, they way she immediately distanced herself from Mark (coloreds LIKE the Slavery) Williams, and showed those people wanting to build a house of worship two blocks from ground zero What For.
Somehow - I doubt it.
