The TN shooter case is a reminder that Obama's security detail better be constantly vigilant
This loser, Adkisson, based on his writings, his reading choices, his comments, and his life situation has about a 60 IQ.

And he successfully killed 2 people and injured a half-dozen others just because they're "liberal".


How many Adkissons are there out there that aren't as inbred, aren't as completely fucking stupid, as this guy?


You know there are dozens of Freepers out there that would consider it a patriotic and heroic act to take out Obama.


Their leaders have spent the past months convincing them that Obama is a muslim-raised anti-christ bent on the destruction of the free market and turning our sovereignty over to the U.N.


There are lots of Adkissons out there... and some of them aren't as mentally challenged as him.



God-speed to the Obama Secret Service detail. Keep him safe.

1. Don't worry...they're on it.
My cousin is Secret Service. He's done Presidential detail and he guarded Theresa Kerry in 2004.

There's nobody I'd trust more with my life. This isn't a job to these guys, it's their life.

6. The funny part is that my aunt is a new-age pacifist type.
Three sons...one is becoming a Roman Catholic priest, one is in the Army, and one is in the Secret Service.

...hell, we couldn't even play with toy guns at her house when we were little (so my cousin and I beat the hell out of each other with stick "swords").

10. Interesting.
I can easily see, though, where idealists would find noble purpose in all three of those professions.

8. No he doesn't
There isn't any better security detail than the Secret Service. And I don't want ANY President to have a private security detail.

7. Secret Service is a lot more sophisticed than it was in JFK and RFK's day
And that's why there's never been a successful assassination of a president since. Don't get me wrong, he's still very vulnerable and needs to take as many precautions as he can. But I am confident that he's in good hands.

9. And, I agree with this writer on Huff Post that it was Terrorism..
"Unitarian Church Shooting is Terrorism"

"The shooting at the Unitarian Church in Knoxville, TN on Sunday that left two adults dead and seven wounded was an unequivocal act of terrorism.

Though the international community at the UN General Assembly has been unable to come up with a common definition of terrorism as it applies to existing groups there are broad elements of a definition that are widely held.

An act of terrorism is violence by a civilian or civilians against unarmed civilians for a political motive. Al-Qaeda attacking US servicemen in the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, or in the USS Cole, or in Iraq or even in Fort Dix, New Jersey is not terrorism. It is a guerilla attack. Al-Qaeda attacking civilians in US embassies in Africa or at the World Trade Center is indeed terrorism.

So is suspect Jim D. Adkisson's attack on civilians in the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church. Police found a letter in Adkisson's car expressing his " hatred of the liberal movement."
