White House Shooting Suspect’s Path to Extremism (Texa sTies)
Mr. Chapman, 21, said he had not heard Mr. Ortega talk of taking violent action. But more than a year ago, he recalled, Mr. Ortega and others watched an antigovernment film on the Internet called “The Obama Deception,” which was written, directed and produced by Alex Jones, a Texas-based conservative talk show host who has espoused a number of conspiracy theories involving the federal government.

And here we have Glen Beck setting up shop in Southlake TX.

1. Mentally ill - "White House cases"
It really doesn't take much to push someone who is mentally ill over the edge. And these talk radio hosts don't care if they do go over the edge either.

“These folks often end up in Washington as what we used to call ‘White House cases,’ ” he said. “A White House case classically is someone who comes to the guard at the White House and says they have a special message for the president, or they try to go over the wall. We’ve seen dozens. They almost always have paranoid schizophrenia, and they almost always respond to medication.” Among the patients being treated there is John W. Hinckley Jr., who shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981.


Ortega needs medical help and I hope he gets it. If they just stick him in prison, he's going to die there.

I feel for his family too.
