Wisconsin temple shooter killed himself, FBI says

Wade Michael Page, who police say fatally shot six people in a Sikh temple in Wisconsin on Sunday, died that day from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head after he was shot in the stomach by a responding officer, Teresa Carlson, the special agent in charge for the FBI in Milwaukee, said Wednesday.

Police previously said that he was shot to death by an officer responding to the attack in Oak Creek.

Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran who neighbors say played in a so-called hate-rock band, was the lone gunman in the rampage at the temple, police said.

    So, in other words had he not killed himself he would have been another mass murdering white guy living without catching a bullet himself. Funny thing is police are shooting minorities everyday with no gun on them let alone mass murdering

    Further, if you could test in intelligence (or lack thereof) of these hate mongers, you would see that the members of such groups are the mental midgets of modern society

    Regardless of whether he shot himself or a peace officer whacked him, an overewheming number of individuals are yammering about the money saved in court, money saved not having to serve prison saving tax money.
    One shload of tax money was spent on law enforcement having to deal with this animal in the first place. Money spent to preserve a crime seen and launch a homicide investigation. Money spent to bring the help of the Feds in (room and board, and meals), ect. Money spent on multiple rescue squads and paramedic teams. Money spent in hospital expenses (surgeries,ect). Money spent in funerals.

    I know I'm a little off the reservation with this, but I would bet the damage estimates of what that one man did in that movie theater are into the several millions of dollars. Needless to say the loss of life, you can't even put a dollar amount on. The court cost and prison stay is nothing more than a 50 cent tour of prison life for that pr!ck.

    With the shooter dead, we will never find out why he went mental and did what he did. There never is a good explanation to insanity.

    Thoughts and prayers to all the victims and their families and friends.

    Began as gentle, kind child. If we knew of the stressors acting upon him we all would know what to avoid to keep from his misery. Our surrounding, companions and music affect our lives. Choose carefully. Do not carry bigotry or attempt to judge character by color. Truth lets us find understanding and lose the burden of anger between peoples. Stop hurting each other.

    The cop "Murphy" is a hero... usually these hater types (white and black) have internal anger issues. They attach themselves to some hatr group and feel part of something (gangs in s. chicago killin more littl bros than war ) Violence is glorified in music and movies... the lone wolf type is romantized by idiots in hollywood. So the young innocent boyz mind is polluted with violence and fustration...he becomes a bitter broken man with nothing to lose and acts out in such a way... whats scary is that all serial killers and monsters have been "white".... ? nazi s ,evil european slavers ,kkk,inquisition etc. Jeezuz was a jew and not from europe...lol Shalom
