The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. is a national museum that is a living memorial to the Holocaust and those that suffered in it. The museum has over 13,000,000 tourists annually. Today, a gunman entered the main entrance and opened up fire with a shotgun on the guards. Guards returned fire and injured the gunman, who has been identified as James Van Brunn. The story is developing.

Apparently, James W. von Brunn is a World War II veteran.

It's unclear which side he was on.

How is that you can bitch about a post and THEN triple-post it? Now THOSE are stones.

Is dios counting on the other two both getting deleted?

Deliberate triple-posting is a crime, but it is not a hate crime.
