Weird story, not sure what to think. Very odd coincidence, same day and target as the terrorist attack in Orlando. Maybe a copycat? Then again the guy came all the way from Indiana.


When hate shared by extremists for a certain group is involved, it's not surprising that more than one person hits on the same idea from different ends of the country.

at least one tv news blurb quoted the cops as saying he had some kinda explosive stuff on him.


What I've heard is that he had Tannerite, which is a commercially available binary compound used to make exploding targets, which would be consistent with a guy who's going to do some target shooting. It's a very stable material, it needs to be hit with a high powered round to go off, and unless this guy also had blasting caps, isn't terribly suitable for bomb making. I'll be curious to see what other details come out on this one.

Seriously, look at his photo, he looks like that Hobbit!

He is pretty weird looking, I'll give you that, certainly not hot felon material.

The police said it's not coordinated with Orlando.

The man was a White Christian from the midwest, who is opposed to LGBT rights.

Wow you reached far with that one.....

You seem to do that frequently.

Not satisfying enough that he was white middle class from a shthole state (sorry anyone born there but it is)...had to embellish for add of anti gay and christian when not in the article nor likely with his history.

Quote:
Howell as having pointed his gun at his boyfriend in an earlier incident.

“James is going to get someone hurt,” one witness said, the article said. “He needs to stop pointing guns at people.”

Greeson said that Howell harbored no ill will toward gays or lesbians and added that Howell was bisexual.

But not a "cute stage " Elijah. Man that would have me wanting to watch the world burn >_<

He was going to attend, he is a weird, trigger happy bi-guy with ashort fuse temper and no sense of responsibility with firearms (you NEVER point at somoen you are not intending to kill...cuz shat happens) that is a loose cannon already prohibted by probation for having firearms. In trouble no matter what , but not what the thought.
At the worse case he was there to kill his lover.

Lots of guys do that, tape magazines back to back so you can just flip it over to reload, not particularly sinister in and of itself.

what are the odds that all this horror happening within a 2-day period [Christina Grimmie, Orlando massacre and now this] is not strictly random?

Are you suggesting that these people somehow coordinated? This guy didn't even do anything aside from get caught with a bunch of contraband.
