This was last Friday. Since then, a good deal of new information was found out. I'm surprised nobody made a topic about it, considering that it's Los Angeles, not to mention people will be blaming GTA 5 for it.

 

 
LOS ANGELES—

The suspected gunman in last week's deadly attack at Los Angeles International Airport wrote a note saying he intended to die after killing at least one security officer, the chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security said on Sunday.

Twenty-three-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia also discussed weaknesses in airport security in the "suicide" note before Friday's attack, Michael McCaul, the Republican congressman from Texas who chairs the committee, told CNN.
 

Ciancia is accused of fatally shooting a Transportation Security Administration officer, the first employee from the agency to die in the line of duty since it was created 12 years ago. Airport police shot and wounded the gunman, ending the rampage.

"It's clearly one of those notes that reads, 'I'm going to kill people and I don't want to kill civilians,' with the idea that he's going to die at the end of this," McCaul, who said he had read the note, told CNN.

He said the note "talks a lot about killing TSA agents, and he said, 'If I just kill one, my mission is accomplished.'"

In a criminal complaint filed on Saturday, investigators said they found a handwritten letter signed by Ciancia in his bag that addressed TSA officials, writing that he wanted to "instill fear in your traitorous minds."

It was not immediately clear whether McCaul was referring to the same note mentioned in the complaint.

Authorities charge that Ciancia walked into the airport's Terminal 3 on Friday morning, took out an assault rifle from his bag and opened fire, shooting dead Gerardo Hernandez, a 39-year-old TSA officer at a document checkpoint.

Ciancia, authorities charge, then went on to shoot and wound two other TSA employees and a passenger, prompting a panicked evacuation of the world's sixth-busiest airport.

The U.S. attorney in Los Angeles has charged Ciancia with murdering a federal officer and committing violence at an international airport, crimes that carry the threat of execution if Ciancia is convicted.

McCaul suggested that the suspected shooter wanted to demonstrate what he viewed as lax security at airports.

"The other thing he wanted to talk about was how easy it is to bring a gun into an airport and do something just like he did," McCaul said of the note.

McCaul also said that police visited Ciancia's home after being alerted by worried relatives, but he had already left for the airport about 45 minutes before.

Ciancia's father, who lives in Pennsville Township, New Jersey, called local police before the shooting after Ciancia, who moved to California 18 months ago and lives in suburban Los Angeles, sent his brother a worrisome text message.

McCaul said police in Pennsville contacted Los Angeles police, who then "visited the suspect's home the morning of the shooting and missed him by literally, probably, 45 minutes."

A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department said on Sunday she was unable to confirm or deny McCaul's assertion.

In a message on Twitter, the Los Angeles Airport Police Division warned passengers to expect delays on Sunday as the airport returns to "full operations."

How can you blame GTA 5? I mean unfortunately Rockstar didn't even think about detailing an airport interior so I can't see how anyone could blame GTA.

I am wondering Why they 'grounded' the aircraft waiting to take off.

Nice generalization there.

 

How is this guy a "right-wing nut"? Let alone any of the other "mass" shooters in the last few years.

 

Your post is right inline with the media's agenda of making sure idiots like yourself believe the bullsh*t they spew hence your moronic post. Most of these "mass" shooters with "evil assault weapons" are both mentally disturbed and sociopaths. This sort of profile more appropriately fits your modern day liberal idiot.  ;)

Protocols are in place to make decision making as easy as possible during stressful circumstances.

I have said this to you at least 5 times now, nobody in the media is blaming video games for a story anymore except sh*tty underground media outlets trying to garner attention. Blaming video games is old news and you seem to be the only person mentioning it.

Yes, good old Protocols, SOP without complete thinking.

I would think the airport Authorities would want to get the people away as quick as possible.

Just think of it your plane is ready to take off, and the airport is attacked.

The Protocol is to keep the plane on the ground, so it too, is vulnerable to attack as it sits like a duck on the pond. Instead of winging off to safety it waits on the tarmac for the bullets to pierce the fuselage.

I think the assumption is that it could be a large-scale attack. If there were more attackers on the planes, or attempting to board the planes you wouldn't want the planes in the air; there would be even more risk then.

Just another day in the USA! Shootings with one fatality happen daily in my city so this is hardly news to me. I guess that it was in an airport makes it slightly more of a story.

And the fact that it was a federal agent shot to death. Even if just TSA.

Nine hundred and ninety-nine standing around... (Somebody had to.)

Just heard a news bite. Seems the TSA agents faded into their hidey-holes and left a woman traveler standing alone in the terminal. Kind of reminds me of the crews of some Cruise Ships.

 

So they have no responsibility to the people they are supposed to be protecting?

 

Another example of what happens when the 'people' are systematically disarmed.

Of course this time the Armed Response arrived in a 'minute' so the Authorities claim.

But, the guy is still alive (at the moment), which is a grave (pun) mistake. As now there will have to be a trial (unless they decide to use the insanity ploy).

 

Looks like the baggage X-ray and check in should be at the entrances.
