geez, pete, whats with you mensa people, now they are shooting up the holocaust museum in DC!!!!! this is just in on the guy that shot up the holocaust museum here in DC this afternoon!!! ...and to think he's one of yours!!!

Details on White Supremacist Suspect
Police are confirming that the name of suspect is James Von Brunn, a white supremacist, born 1920.

On a rambling, racist and bitterly anti-semitic website a man who identifies himself as James W. von Brunn claims to be a former World War II PT boat captain who was decorated for his conduct in battle, and was an advertising executive and film producer in New York City.

He claims to be a member of Mensa, "the high-IQ society," and in 1981 was convicted in D.C. Superior Court for an offense that is not made clear. He was "convicted by a Negro jury, Jew/Negro attorneys, and sentenced to prison for eleven years by a Jew judge. A Jew/Negro/White Court of Appeals denied his appeal. He served 6.5 years in federal prison."

all kidding aside. ..serious stuff....just very glad to see security working the way its supposed to . ..we kid/joke a lot in this town about these damn rent-a-cops at some of the museums/federal buildings and how lackadaiscle they look, etc. ..but so far, it looks like security at this museum worked the way its supposed to. . ..granted this nut is 88 years old, but he approached a museum full of tourists, many of them children, with a loaded shotgun, only got as far as the security gates at the entrance, got off a shot or two at the first security guard (hitting him by the way), and then other security guards converged on him, shooting him and putting him down....so far it appears that no other innocent bystanders were hit. ...good work guys!!!!

    Dang...Another reason I think I'll get my CC permit. While I can. Fruitcakes all over the place.

    Typically they target un-guarded locations.

  • they just announced that the guard that was shot has died. ...

    so please understand that while i was poking a little fun at our fellow eggor who is a mensa card holder and we've had a long running joke with him about being a mensa man, i do take this shooting very seriously. .. .

    this is my town after all....and i hate that we've turned it into an armed camp these past 8 years (those of you who i've taken on tours over the past 8 years have heard me rant about it for sure!!), and i've also spoken in not so nice terms about the quality of the security services they hire to guard the entrances of these museums and other public places. . . but again, in this instances, it sure seems from first indications and initial reports that this man, and his fellow guards really did their jobs, and in this man's case, made the ultimate sacrifice....if it was like most noontimes at that museum, that lobby was chock-full of old folks, parents, and busloads of young children. ..and they've now said that this old nut had a rifle, not a shotgun, so lord only knows how many lives he might have taken if not for those security guards quick actions. ... so my prayers go out to him and his family this afternoon. . .

    Sad...

    I remember going through the museum when we visited DC a few years ago. Until I toured the museum I could only relate to the Holocaust by what I read or what Hollywood showed me. After just a few minutes I can only imagine what went on in those people's minds as things got progressively worse for them.

    I can also imagine the ghost of Hitler as this nut came through the door with his gun thinking he was doing the world a favor.

    As a species we sure have not developed well.

    I know you are very proud of "Your Town" and hate it when something like this happens. But I think you represent most civilized people, especially Americans who think DC is their town too.

    Lets make it perfectly clear, this 88 year old man was ANTI-SEMETIC and a RACIST. It doesn't matter who was the Jury, the Attorneys, and Judges. The man was found guilty of a Crime. He also is a WHITE SUPREMACIST and has been one for a long time. So don't downplay the fact that the jury, the attorneys, and judges were either Jewish and/or Negroes. Last time I remember they are just as much of America as everyone else. This so-called "Hero" ain't NO hero.
  • GandolfGandolf Posts: 882
    Sorry Max, I don't think you can make up for this one.

    Even so, not in good taste. People lost their lives in this.
