SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - The gunman who went on a chaotic rampage killing four people before being fatally shot by police at a college campus planned the attack and was capable of firing 1,300 rounds of ammunition, the police chief said Saturday.
"Any time someone puts on a vest, of some sort, comes out with a bag full of loaded magazines, has an extra receiver, has a handgun and has a semi-automatic rifle, carjacks folks, goes to a college, kills more people and has to be neutralized at the hands of the police, I would say that that's premeditated," said Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks.
OH. Okay, since you put it that way ....would anyone be offended if I said that makes a weird sort of sense?
It sort of sounds like Dirty Harry's description of how he determined that the naked man he shot "had intentions of rape".
That's it. That's the "weird sort of sense" I meant.
Does that make the Santa Monica Police Chief "Dirty Jacqui"?
(PS: No, I'm not going to comment on the "just another spree murder" thingie. If I sound dismissive, it's because "The officers came in and directly engaged the suspect and he was shot and killed on the scene," and that's the way it should have ended. Just ... earlier.
