Such a tragedy. I actually read the man's manifesto and found that I agreed with much of what he was saying. Nevertheless, there was too much "poor me" dribble in it for me to take him seriously. I feel sorry for his wife and the family of the other person (IRA?) killed.

Tragic but surprising this sort of thing has not happened before now. I just hope it doesn't cause copy cats like so many other attacks have in the past.

What a state to get into, what about his wife and family. He must have been quite selfish really.

Yeah sad. This man owed the IRS so much in back pay and wasn't giving up what he had and if he couldn't have it no one was going to have it. My beat friend live in Austin and I seen the aftermath of it all. Total loss. It was bad. Very bad.

He wasn't selfish and loved his family. Very popular singing artist in Austin.
