    Police warned Navy - 6 weeks prior to shooting about shooter

    Police warned Navy about gunman's mental instability 6 weeks ago, report says

    A Newport, Rhode Island police sergeant reported Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis to naval station police last month after the suspect told cops he was “hearing voices” through his hotel room wall and that three people were following him and sending vibrations into his body, according to a police report obtained by FoxNews.com.

    In the document, the officer said that on August 7, he was sent to a local hotel to check out a suspicious person report involving Alexis, who told him he was a naval contractor and travelled often.

    The report said Alexis told the officer that while flying from Virginia to Rhode Island, he got into an argument with someone else at the airport who he believed had sent three people to follow him and keep him awake by talking to him and sending vibrations into his body.

    He also said he thought he heard these three people – two black males and a black female–talking to him through a wall of his hotel room and through the walls, floors and ceiling of a hotel on the Navy base.

    Alexis told the officer the trio was using “some sort of microwave machine” to keep him awake.

    The sergeant wrote in the report that based on what Alexis told him, “I made contact with on-duty Naval Station Police [officer name redacted.]”

    The Naval Station Police official told the sergeant “they would follow up on this subject” and determine if Alexis was, in fact, a naval base contractor.

    While it was good he reported to the navy, why wasn't this guy committed? He was obviously a danger to himself or others.

    Take what Fox reports as confirms with a grain of salt. 90% of what's reported in the next week will be speculation and hearsay.

    Unfortunately, Fox may well be the worst offender of all the major media outlets. They truly do make it up as they go and delete as their creations are proven to be false. Nearly nothing we've been told so far is likely entirely accurate.

    We're going to hear a whole lot on what should have been done with and about the shooter. The debates will go on along the lines of slippery slopes and individual rights, so on. To me, it all boils down to the fact that we all know that there are people out there who will do bad things. Security measures would sure seem more effective than banking on the guesswork of even employee screening.

    I don't secure my home by going out in public and attempting to figure everyone out and change those who would do me harm. I have a little system in place to where when my home is breached by a psycho, I will shoot him.

    It appears Feinstein is the only one with a reasonable answer. Let's ban all guns not related to the guns used in this shooting.

    I'm having a tough time understanding why this guy didn't pop-up on the radar a long time ago.

    Look how much has been reported and retracted already. From number of shooters, weapons used, number of shooters down, and gunfire at the White House. Who knows what the next never mind will be?

    And yet, it's the gun's fault. Not the fault of decreased mental health services, not the fault of the Navy police who did nothing after warned, not the fault of the police and DAs who did not charge and prosecute after his last 2 arrest, etc. Nope, just the gun. Gun control doesn't address any of those epic fails along the way.

    Excellent point. None of the recent laws proposed would have saved a single life in these horrific killings. Yet if they had followed up on existing laws and common sense some lives may have been saved. Look at the killings in Chicago. I'd like my odds on a bet that a majority of them are committed by folks who are already criminals and should not have a weapon.

    Putting more laws on the necks of the law abiding citizens won't slow down the activities of the criminals. It just makes for more soft targets.

    Senator Ben Cardin was on local radio this morning and sure enough got around to the typical response - we need "common sense" regulations on "clip" size and universal background checks.


    To his credit, the news guy asked him how this would have made a difference in this situation as he used a shotgun..



    No intelligible response......

    In general, it's very hard to get someone committed unless they specifically wig out in front of the police or in front of EMTs.
    And I hope people don't become more sensitive regarding schizophrenia in general. Only a teeny portion of schizophrenics become dangerously violent. Rest assured, the majority of this population have lives of quiet, nearly harmless, agony.
