1 thing clear from interview of suspects' dad: He had no clue what his kids were really doing in the US. Even the legal stuff.
One of the suspects was reportedly capt of wrestling team in HS and recipient of multiple awards. Attended prom parties. NOT disaffected.
Creators of fake Twitter accounts involving crimes should be charged with interfering with an investigation.
The WBUR discussion of the 2 suspects is incredible. Anyone who knew these guys thought they were wonderful, friendly folks.
@ndIRISHlc19 No. Sort of lost touch of friends out there. Was a decade ago. Gotta think they've all moved on.
@ndIRISHlc19 ...relationships with the law. We used to joke you never needed to lock your doors there b/c nobody is dumb enough to break in.
@ndIRISHlc19 yeah. Wow. I just found out where one of the shoot-outs was. Just insane. Lived right there. Some residents have complex...
@ndIRISHlc19 can you show them to me? Trying to figure out where exactly it's all happening. I've got lots of family around there.

"Gravitas" - a word I really want to use more often, but feel embarrassed about it to the pt of mispronouncing it most of the time.
@DoctahDean and the "people are stupid" thing is also why Jefferson worked so hard to make the system as it is.
@DoctahDean which is why nothing about people ever surprises me.
@DoctahDean but it's still beside my point: Has Congress ever acted against such polling levels before?
@DoctahDean then what about the 86% from the Post/ABC poll earlier this week? Still a shocking number.
@DoctahDean It wouldn't shock me at all that 70-90% of the US doesn't see background checks as impeding on commerce.
@DoctahDean ...happened before when the population is polling this strongly in favor of something.
