    The gunman was identified as Paul Anthony Ciancia, a 23-year-old New Jersey native who lived most recently in Los Angeles.
    Authorities declined to discuss the gunman’s motivation publicly. But a law enforcement official told The Times that a note was found on the gunman expressing “disappointment in the government” and saying that he had no interest in hurting “innocent people.” Ciancia also sent a sibling a text message last week suggesting that he was prepared to die, officials said.

    It appears the gunman targeted unarmed Transportation Security Administration agents. Another law enforcement official told The Times that investigators were looking into the possibility that the shooter “wasn’t a fan of the TSA.”

      A former classmate of Ciancia's said Friday the suspected gunman was a loner and had been bullied at their private high school.

      "In four years, I never heard a word out of his mouth," said David Hamilton, who graduated with Ciancia from Salesianum School in Wilmington, Del., in 2008 and is now an editorial assistant at a publishing firm in Philadelphia. "He kept to himself and ate lunch alone a lot. I really don't remember any one person who was close to him."

        Wilmington, DE. Once upon a time the Catholic church preached social justice. Since the abortion wars took hold it seems like more and more Catholics have become right wingers to a level that never existed back when I was growing up.

      The official said the rant refers to how Ciancia believed his constitutional rights were being violated by TSA searches and that he's a "pissed-off patriot" upset at former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. The note and the gunman's rifle each had an orange TSA inspection sticker on it.

    •  There was an interview somewhere (5+ / 0-)

      of a man who had been told to run by a TSA official, except he couldn't run because he was gathering his shoes and his belt, and the TSA dude grabbed his shoes and got him to run. He was separated from the TSA dude when the man encountered the gunman, who looked at him and asked him if he was TSA, then left him alone.

      The man got his shoes back from the TSA officer a bit later; TSA dude had taken a minor gunshot wound.

      :-o

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
