    Texas dad may have stopped mass shooting by warning cops about son, police say

    Texas dad may have stopped mass shooting by warning cops about son, police say
    Morgan Phillips1 hour ago

    Police in Fort Worth, Texas, say a mass shooting may have been averted Tuesday after a man alerted authorities to say his 27-year-old son wanted to buy weapons and go on a rampage.

    "He wanted to kill many people. He wanted to do something that was very similar that took place in the Midland-Odessa area [Aug. 31] and he basically wanted to mimic that," Forth Worth Police Officer Buddy Calzada told KXAS-TV.

    Police said they were familiar with the man and had received calls about him due to his mental health issues before. When the man's father called, he told authorities his son was out attempting to buy weapons, and the father worried he might try to carry out a mass shooting.

    Police say the man had withdrawn a large amount of cash from his bank account and tried to buy guns legally, but was turned down because he failed a background check.

    "Kudos to those businesses that followed the law," Officer Landon Rollins with the Crisis Intervention team told reporters, according to The Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The man then attempted to buy a gun off the street, "which we all know is very accessible... you can get it done," said Rollins.

    The father gave authorities general directions where his son might be headed. The crisis team quickly caught up with the man, who Rollins said: "he was not living in reality."

    “He believed I was trying to kill him right then and there with my mind," Rollins added. "When he was detained and we interviewed him he had a very flat affect and said, point-blank, and I asked him what he wanted to do with these weapons and he said just "I want to kill people."

    Rollins said the man had not been taking his prescribed medications and not meeting with his doctor. He is currently in a mental health clinic receiving treatment.

    Police applauded the man's father for speaking up.

    "He was extraordinarily worried and he feared a mass casualty incident," Rollins told KXAS. "That takes so much courage to be able to do that on your own family and to reach out to law enforcement for that."

    And there's the propaganda being parroted.

    Don't lose sight of the fact he was not taking his meds...psychotropic drugs have a very negeative effect if the taker stops taking.....
    It's built in. It makes the users psychotic....keep that in mind with every shooter, wild eye's or not.

    Don't lose sight of who prescribes these drugs......and who they subscribe too.

    I understand what you are saying but there are people who do need these medications to function somewhat normally. I have a friend who is schizophrenic and without her psych meds she is downright scary to be around.

    Many blow it off but he is likely on one of the SSRI Psychiatric drugs.
    Granted these drugs may help some people, but if you start asking around you may get some surprising answers and info! Like calling the suff evil and having to ween themselves off this stuff after finding out they could not go cold turkey without going nuts.

    Why do you think soooo many combat vets with PTSD are turning to THC/CBD instead of the prescribed ZOMBIE meds the VA puts them on. If you were to take all the crap the VA prescribes you'd quite literally be a foot dragging barely functional mumbling fumbling brain dead zombie.



    And if you were to quit those drugs cold turkey you can quickly go from zombie to total wacko!! Good stuff that.....NOT!

    Bad thing about this is he will more than likely be back on the street in 72 hours. Maybe they can incarate him on street gun purchase but I think they will put him back out to play.

    Not really propaganda at all. How do you think most criminals get their firearms? They either steal them or buy them illegally. Depending on where you live if you have cash or drugs you can buy just about anything on the street including AR-15's.
    What is the lake of fire? What is it's purpose? Is the lake of fire eternal hell? Is there any hope of escape for those cast into this lake?
