Sad and scary deal. We truly have some mental issues in this country that somehow need to be dealt with



That's a very nice thought but years ago when they closed the mental health houses they set up this scenario where every once in a while some nut ball "wants to be famous". We are very lucky in this latest case that the only fatality was the criminal himself.


I don't know what the answer is, but societies view now is you can't keep these types off the street until they present a danger to society, and then it's too late.

You can't save the World. The best you can hope for; is to not be standing next to someone who goes off...

See something, say something.
My son in law rented his 40 f t diesel out over the weekend. His renter parked the RV on a main street in Nashville on Saturday morning to visit a museum and when they came out to the RV it was surrounded by the fire department and police department with canines searching the unit. They asked the renter if they could enter and search and he said certainly and they spent over a hour combing the rig for contraband and explosives. They found nothing of course.

Nashville agencies weren't takin any chances after what happened. Someone apparently thought they might have seen something and said something.

It's better to be cautious and wrong: than to be blowed-up...
(What were they thinking??? They had to know that the rig would attract attention.)

But its still crazy. I guess RVs are are going to be considered inherently evil - like guns - in the minds of unthinking fools.

Wait until they figure out that we might use them to carry plastic straws into California!

My mistake> the investigation of the parked rig took place in Louisville not Nashville a few days after the Nashville explosion. It still is a good example of authorities being vigilant.

Sorry.

Well the Oklahoma City bomber used a rented box truck and nobody gets all hyper about a U Haul.
