    Default Shooting at Wisconsin Sikh Temple.

    http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/loc...a4bcf887a.html

    Reports are coming out of Oak Creek that at least four people, and up to 30, have been shot at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin at 7512 S. Howell Ave.
    The Journal Sentinel of Milwaukee is reporting that there are possibly two shooters still inside the temple holding children hostage, although that has not been verified.
    A spokeswoman for Froedert Hospital, the main trauma center in the Milwaukee area, has told CNN that two men have been taken there and the hospital is ready to receive more.
    There are more than a dozen ambulances parked outside the temple, and police have corralled media and a handful of bystanders to an area near the temple.
    No further details have been released from the police.

    Just go for it!

    There are children inside the temple hiding and some are being held hostage. Still no word on how many shot/killed. It's live on CNN right now.
    Just go for it!

    Didn't take long for them to slap "domestic terrorism" onto this one...

    The shooter was identified as Wade Michael Page, a forty year old neo-Nazi and former Army vet who left under less than honorable circumstances in 1998.

    Default media will blame metal music

    Wade Michael Page, the alleged shooter in yesterday’s gun-related tragedy, founded and played vocals and lead guitar for a white-supremacist hardcore-punk and metal band named End Apathy.

    What a piece of trash. What the hell did these people ever do to him? I get not liking hoodlums (white or black) because of the crime they create, or muslim terrorists because of the people they kill, but serisously, what the hell would these people do to deserve this type of hatred besides looking different?

    Stupid ass white trash.

    Not all vets are "heroes." I've heard many people who served say this, that there's been some over generalization going on the last few years.

    Authorities have arrested Wade Michael Page's ex-girlfriend on a weapons charge.

    Misty Cook was charged with possessing a gun, which is illegal because she is a felon, said South Milwaukee Police Lt. Jason Walker.



    Walker released no other details and did not comment on whether Cook had any connection to Sunday's shootings at the suburban Milwaukee gurdwara, the Sikh house of worship, that left six people dead.

    I get what you're saying as our mayor in the town I live in outside of St. Louis just got busted on a DUI and went to rehab for meth. Turns out he also used city funds to buy personal items like tools, TVs, and even lap dances at stip clubs. His claim to fame? He was a veteran.

    At the same time even heroes are flawed. Serving your country on a voluntary basis is a heroic thing to do. They aren't serving soup to the homeless--they are putting their lives on the line as volunteers. Even if they fuck up in their own lives (or in this case, take the lives of other people), what they do is still a noble thing to do.

    However, being in the military doesn't give one a lifetime pass for being an asshole.

    pussy coward

    The FBI revealed today that Wade Michael Page, the Army veteran and white supremacist who killed six people at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin on Sunday, appears to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head after being shot in the stomach by a police officer who responded to the scene.

    Teresa Carlson, special agent in charge of the FBI's Milwaukee office, said at a press conference that the officer had "neutralized the threat" by shooting Page. "I have seen the video and it is an amazing shot," said Carlson, "and thank goodness. Subsequent to that wound it appears that Page died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head."

    Carlson did not identify the officer, but 32-year veteran Sam Lenda, the second officer to reach the scene, was previously crediting with downing Page.

    Authorities also said that Lt. Brian Murphy, the veteran Oak Creek police officer who was the first to reach the temple and was shot at least eight times, is recovering. "He's progressing amazingly and we're very, very thankful for that," said Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards. "Yesterday he was up walking [and] they had him sitting up for a period of time. Murphy was hailed as a hero for instructing other officers at the scene to assist other shooting victims before attending to him.

    Officer Shot 15 Times In Sikh Temple Shooting Shares Story Of Survival

    Oak Creek, WI — Officer Brian Murphy was the first responder to the Sikh temple shooting on August 5 in which six worshipers were killed. He was shot 15 times — 12 to the body and three into his protective vest — and is currently on leave from the force, undergoing physical therapy and additional surgeries.



    Yet Murphy insists that he is no hero.

    “I just do what you’re supposed to do,” Murphy told WISN 12 News. “And that should be reward enough.

    Murphy believes he was spared because of where the shooting took place.

    “I was protecting people who went in to worship God,” he said. “Maybe that assisted in whomever’s intervention to say, ‘No — you helped. And we’ll help you.’”

    Murphy said he managed to remain conscious and calm the whole time by focusing on his breathing. Concentrating on his breath helped him not to panic.

    WISN’s Joyce Garbaciak asked Murphy what he wanted to live for so badly.

    “I have an amazing wife. I have beautiful stepchildren. I have an awesome daughter,” Murphy said. “And I thought, I’m not going like this.”

    Murphy’s wife, Ann, said she wasn’t surprised her husband managed to stay so calm during the entire incident.

    “I always knew since I met him that if something goes wrong, he’s the person that I want to be right next to because he’s very good in extreme situations,” Ann Murphy said.

    Ann Murphy was running errands the morning of the shooting. She had sent her husband a text, but didn’t hear back from him. When she got home, one of the lieutenants from the police department was coming up her stairs.

    “So I knew something had happened, but it’s Oak Creek. So I thought maybe a car accident, something like that,” she said. The lieutenant told her that her husband confronted a gunman at the Sikh temple and been shot.

    “I will be forever grateful how he was able to get me through those first few minutes because he was able to tell me that Brian had been shot in the throat without me completely losing it,” she said.

    Police officer Sam Lenda shot at the gunman, white supremacist Wade Michael Page, who committed suicide after being shot.

    Murphy said the Sikh community had forgiven Page, but that he never thought about forgiving him.

    My forgiveness has no bearing on the matter,” Murphy said. “And honestly I give him the least amount of thought possible. I don’t want to give him any more power than he already took. I just don’t. He doesn’t deserve it.”

    Murphy’s focus is instead on recovering from his injuries. He undergoes physical therapy twice a week, and will be receiving additional procedures on his voice box and thumb in the future. He said some good did come out of the shooting.

    “Think about it,” Murphy said. “If I can get through that, there’s really nothing else I can’t get through.”
