Report: Navy Yard shooter had a “pattern of misconduct” while enlisted

posted at 8:01 pm on September 16, 2013 by Allahpundit

No details yet from the LA Times on what the “misconduct’ was, but per their Navy source, it was enough to get him discharged. Hmmmm.

An all-around bad guy or a guy with a strange, violent dark streak to him? Here’s a curious report from a Seattle website about an incident Alexis was involved in back in 2004. One day in May of that year, he walked out of his house with a gun and shot up the rear tires of a car owned by construction workers that was parked in the driveway of the home next door. Quote:

When detectives interviewed workers and a manager at the construction site, they told police Alexis had “stared” at construction workers at the job site every day over the last month prior to the shooting. The owner of the construction business told police he believed Alexis was angry over the parking situation around the work site…

Following his arrest, Alexis told detectives he perceived he had been “mocked” by construction workers the morning of the incident and said they had “disrespected him.” Alexis also claimed he had an anger-fueled “blackout,” and could not remember firing his gun at the victims’ vehicle until an hour after the incident.

Alexis also told police he was present during “the tragic events of September 11, 2001″ and described “how those events had disturbed him.”

His father reportedly told cops at the time that Alexis had helped with “rescue attempts” on 9/11 and that he feared he had developed anger management issues related to PTSD because of it. Did he … just snap today? He didn’t “just snap” against the construction workers; by their account, he seethed for a month at them. And read this Politico piece about the logistics of the Navy Yard shooting. The building where it all went down is very tightly secured, requiring multiple checkpoints to gain entry. This guy clearly planned things carefully. But why?

Here’s video of a couple from Fort Worth who remember him as a waiter at the Thai restaurant they frequent. Nothing too newsy, although for what it’s worse, the woman says he recently spent at least a month in Thailand. He spoke the language and was, per a friend who talked to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, a Buddhist. His political affiliation: None, based on voter registration records. Stay tuned.

Presumably we’ll now get a push for universal federal background checks—just like the one Aaron Alexis passed to get his CCW permit.

— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) September 16, 2013

But people saying “universal background checks!” have to answer this: Alexis passed Navy and CCW checks. Why would this be different?

— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) September 16, 2013

Which means . . . background check. MT @washingtonpost: BREAKING: Aaron Alexis had security clearance that allowed him access to Navy Yard.

— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) September 17, 2013

So, we have background checks for Navy, security clearance, and CCW permit. But background checks on private sales will end mass shootings!

— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) September 17, 2013

So, we also know that Alexis bought a shotgun legally from a dealer and that he passed the mandatory federal background check there, too.

Suspected U.S. shooter had ‘secret’ clearance, employer says.

“He did have a secret clearance. And he did have a CAC (common access card),” said Thomas Hoshko, CEO of The Experts Inc, which was helping service the Navy Marine Corps Intranet as a subcontractor for HP Enterprise Services, part of Hewlett-Packard Co.
Asked when Alexis was supposed to start work, Hoshko said in a telephone interview: “That’s what I got to find out, if he was supposed to start today … It’s not clear to me.”

One angle I am wondering about is whether he visited southern Thailand and became involved with Islamic extremism. This guy was clearly shiftless and troubled and if Buddhism wasn’t giving him what he needed, he may have turned to alternate faiths.

There’s too much we don’t yet know.

SteveMG on September 16, 2013 at 8:10 PM

President Bush was held responsible for allowing Muslim extremists into the country to learn to fly, but not land, airplanes during his predecessors’ tenures; and conjured up hurricanes that destroyed levees that must have been perfectly fine until his election because they hadn’t failed before; and should have known that all the evidence supporting complaints against Saddam Hussein collected by President Clinton’s administration was probably false.

So, yeah, Obama is just as responsible as Bush was.

AesopFan on September 17, 2013 at 1:04 AM

Even if this guy was a sleeper for a terrorist cell, or was committing a lone act of terrorism, don’t expect the government to tell the public. They wouldn’t want to admit that, with all the money we spend on federal law enforcement at DHS, that they missed another one.

mankai on September 17, 2013 at 8:06 AM

Alexis also told police he was present during “the tragic events of September 11, 2001″ and described “how those events had disturbed him.”

So he went out and murdered 12 unarmed, innocent people and LEO’s who were engaged in helping to fight back against the terrorists.

Makes sense to me.

Also, he was a Buddhist and “peaceful” person? Going out on a limb I would say, perhaps he was a violent, disturbed person with a criminal history that was most of the time very good at cloaking his real feelings.

A practicing Buddhist, peaceful person who was disturbed by the events of September 11th does not commit such heinous acts. A murderous, despicable, loathsome criminal miscreant does.

The reason the right is searching for the guy’s political affiliations is to defend themselves from authoritarian leftists who want to use this as a pretext to disarm the law-abiding populace, and also stoke anti-Republican and anti-Christian hysteria. “Both sides” are not “the same.” If the left stopped trying to use these incidents to harass their political enemies, then the right would care little about whether the guy is a Muslim or not.

The Wash Navy Yard shooter had 3 guns including AR-15 assault rifle – same killing machine used at Aurora and Sandy Hook.

Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) September 16, 2013

How would ‘common sense gun laws’ prevented this?

He LEGALLY purchased the shotgun.

He STOLE the GOVERNMENT-PURCHASED AR-15 off of the dead body of one of his law enforcement victims.*

He STOLE the GOVERNMENT-PURCHASED handgun off of the dead body of one of his law enforcement victims.*

He PASSED a Federal background check to get into the Navy.

He PASSED a Federal background check to work for a defence contractor.

He PASSED a Federal background check for a CCW.

He PASSED a Federal background check when he purchased the shotgun.

He PASSED a Federal background check to obtain his ‘secret’ security clearance.

He was on a Navy installation that was a Gun-Free Zone.

He was in DC, which already has some of the most draconian gun laws in the country.

SPECIFICALLY, how would MORE gun control laws have prevented this obscenity?

BTW, how did scissors, whistles, menstruation, threats to vomit, urinate, and/or crap, and those deadly ASSAULT STAPLERS work out for the disarmed at the Navy Yard?

*Based upon current information

Resist We Much on September 17, 2013 at 9:33 AM

So we have Fort Hood and now the Navy Yard. I’m curuious how this might have been handled in pre-firearms eras. Did military personnel always walk around unarmed with their swords, daggers and bows piled neatly in a storeroom, or were they armed at all times? If you motice, most of our military are wearing fatigues every day because we are in a state of war. So if they’re wearing fatigues, why do they not also have their sidearm strapped on??

After all that is now coming out about this killer, he was still given clearance?????? I also read he was given an “honorable” discharge from the Navy?

And he passed a background check by the contracting firm???

This is what happens with PC. They all have blood on their hands imo.

Anyone having that kind of record with gun violations & complaints would most likely not get employment as a cashier in the private sector.

If you motice, most of our military are wearing fatigues every day because we are in a state of war.

Nutstuyu on September 17, 2013 at 9:38 AM

No, they’re wearing ‘fatigues’ because they are comfier and easier to wear than the mre formal uniform. “Inculcating a warrior ethos” is just an excuse to dress comfy.

Every fat-a$$ cop who hasn’t been on patrol or left a desk in 15 years still gets a sidearm.

Nutstuyu on September 17, 2013 at 10:04 AM

Not necessarily true.

Your conflation of medieval castles with modern military office complexes is rather silly, to say the least.

The indecent leftist scum (two repeats already) are all feeding on carrion, again.

That stupid Martha MacCullum, with a straight face, reported “the motive, not released, yet, is cutting the security budget”.

Why does Faux hire ‘pretty’ stupid heads to report the serious news?

All who feed on carrion, the leftist politicians, like the highly indecent E. Holmes and others, the stupid psychiatrists/psychologists on TV, and assorted morons, incl. the one in the WH, media too, I hope you all choke on it, for good. YOU fools deserve NO less.

NO law would have prevented this. However, stupidity contributed. There is a cure against it. Get over your moronic PC, or be killed by it. I hope your stupid heads go first.

It’s nauseating. I saw Martha and the rest of them, speaking nonsense. Then Thune was on talking about Obamacare which shows he has more nerve than sense. That was enough of Fox for me today.

I concluded, what difference does it make NOW! Idiots all. Too many share the blame in this and also Ft. Hood.

I’m trying to find out what would merit a dishonorable discharge.

Time to eliminate the ban on firearms Bill Clinton imposed on all military bases.

Amen to that! Let Feinstein et al defend keeping it. Strike while the iron is hot!

Let’s get Rand Paul & Sessions and the fighters on this!!

Yep. We tell our soldiers to go out and fight the worst human filth ever to curse this planet and when they get back it’s “sorry, you can’t be trusted with that sidearm”.

If Obama had a son, he’d look like Aaron Alexis.

NoPain on September 17, 2013 at 9:10 PM

No doubt…..
Alexis was not flagged and no action was taken because he looked like Obama’s son….

Just like the Fort Hood shooter….the military is infected with PC.

It will take some strong medicine to cure the military of it’s PC infection.

Hell, I think they should be able to carry rocket launchers around! But that’s just me.

redguy on September 18, 2013 at 10:03 AM

normally i would be going skumbag lowlife deserved to get blown away.
But the more facts come out this guy was not (in my opinion0 totally responsible.
Ok its known he had issues both anger and mental

So the VA in all of its wisdom put him on a cocktail of anti psychotic and anti depressents, to the point his brain is pickled and he could not tell reality from call of duty.

and look at the results
also
the aurora colorado shooter was on massive meds
and the connecticuit shooter also

He’s a screeching lunatic with mental illness that would scare the stripes off a tiger.

But, hey, don’t let that put you off your food.
