Capital Police News Briefing: Capitol Shooter "Was Known" to Police; "Nothing To Indicate That This Was More Than a Criminal Act"
— Ace

One reporter asked if the man in custody was the same man "from Tennessee" who had caused some sort of disturbance "last fall."

The cop giving the briefing decline to answer.

Various news outlets now claim the shooter is Larry Dawson of Tennessee. In October of 2015, he caused a disturbance in the House of Representatives by shouting "I'm a prophet of God!" from the galleries.

Silly man. That's Barack Obama's job.

Update: Early reports that a cop was injured (but not seriously) were apparently wrong. It was a bystander who was injured, and the perp himself.

26 OT, but CNB has a story out today saying the GDP reports are always wrong. The average error is 1.3 per cent, meaning a reported 1% growth might actually be 2.3% or it might actually be negative 0.3%. The "revisions" don't improve the situation, because they are wrong too. The government really doesn't know the quarterly growth rate for about five years, according to the article. http://tinyurl.com/gn6547g

51 "... the GDP reports are always wrong. The average error is 1.3 per cent, meaning a reported 1% growth might actually be 2.3% or it might actually be negative 0.3%."

To which also note, final revisions to the Q4 2015 GDP figure are in, for a whopping 1.4% growth rate. The Obama economic miracle continues.

Note also that 1.4% economic growth is less than population growth at this point, when you add in all of the tidal wave of immigrants, legal and illegal, to "population".

Per capita, America continues to be less and less prosperous with every passing year. Mouths clamoring for pie growing far faster than the pie supply. The Uniparty's response: we obviously need moar mouths!

53 regarding the sidebar well, perino is an idiot, more of a gop cheerleader, literally, than a serious analyst or commentator, however, she stumbled into something. disseminating the information about his capture made it easier for everyone to find out very quickly as well as in an unmonitorable way. Had everyone shut their belgian waffle holes about the story and not immediately confirmed everything, it would have been slower to make the rounds as well as giving the intelligence guys a chance to see who was sending and receiving information about the capture.

55 So, related: Want to know how we lose the Second Amendment? Easy. Nathan Deal showed how it would happen today, except a.) fast-forward 30 years into the future, b.) think "more multinational than national", and c.) this time put "United States" in place of "Georgia", and d.) replace "RFRA" with "any issue they think they can get away with". Nathan Deal is a fool. Once CEOs get used to the idea they can be SJWs, we'll see more and more of this we saw today. "Conform, or wither on the economic vine." That's the GOPe for you--always surrendering, without realizing that it only emboldens.

110 Ha, fox 11 had the soup Nazi on this morning, he has a new book out. The vapid moron female, mini skirt, high heel wearing hosts made him repeat the "no soup for you" line so many times that you could tell he was getting upset. There seems to be no expiration on the 15 minutes of fame anymore.

112 ...Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa said the suspect "drew what appeared to be a weapon and pointed it at officers" during routine screening at the visitors center. One officer fired and struck the suspect, who is undergoing surgery at the hospital (his condition is unknown). A weapon was recovered at the scene..... I was initially under the impression someone other than LEO fired shots in the Capitol. Now it may be a level of cynicism on my part, but I wonder exactly what "the weapon" will be found out to be. And I agree, if he is anything other than a full-on leftist, we'll hear about it ad nauseam.

115 To which also note, final revisions to the Q4 2015 GDP figure are in, for a whopping 1.4% growth rate. The Obama economic miracle continues. _____ May I remind you in January 2009 we were losing 17 million jobs a day? - every liberal when confronted with the shitty Obama economy

119 Margaret Cho has some kind of series,I think it is from Amazon.

All right, first Amazon blew 15 million rasbuckniks on Spike Lee's horrible turkey 'Chi-raq'; it augers in mucho pronto.

NOW yer tellin' me that Amazon is shoving money at has-been never was Margaret Cho? What, so she can re-do 'My Puss' in 3-D and IMAX?

Who the hell did they put in charge of their media wing, Bernadette Dohrn????

121 With all of the mayhem going on in Western capitols,  it's probably a good idea to keep one's hands out of one's pockets when approaching a security station.

Like, if the kid's face is dirty, don't reach into the purse/pocket for a clean wipe.

I believe his full title is "The Loon of the Senate."  Or maybe I'm thinking of Ted Kennedy.

126 The JCC in San Francisco has top security, 24-7. If you go into their parking complex they make you open the trunks and check the underside of your car with mirrors. And they ask you straight up if you are there to make any trouble.

128 I am curious as to who shot the tourist. The ambiguous statement causes me to suspect it was not the prophet.

129 "He's doing a sweep, looking for bombs. I ask my daughter about it. She blithely answers they always do that in the afternoons. Every day, they look for bombs"

Genuine security professionals never allow themselves to fall into a scheduled routine. Too easily detected and exploited.

130 "And they ask you straight up if you are there to make any trouble."

Reminiscent of those pre-employment psychological tests that ask questions like "Would you ever steal from your employer?"

You might get a few exceptionally dumb ones answering "Yes".

139 I watched a kind of good movie today. It is Inherent Vice based on a novel by Thomas Pynchon. I know, I know. But even though this movie is all weird and fucked up and shit it kinda makes sense. The Pynchon fanboys reviews on Amazon don't like the novel because even though it's all weird and fucked up and shit it kinda makes sense. The movie is about a hippy professional PI, part-time shade tree pharmacist, and full-time doper in groovy 1970 Las Angeles who gets mixed up in the disappearance of a real estate mogul. He meets a bunch of perverts and hipsters and Aryan Nations and Black Guerilla Family and teeny boppers and shit and kind of half way solves the crime. This is sort of like The Big Lebowski on acid except groovier. One difficulty; the stars are from the mumble school of acting and that given the unusual vocabulary and dialogue, however historically accurate, sometimes make it difficult to understand what's going on. Bonus: boobs.
