It's a sad omen to see the level of fear that is now occurring in reality. People like Glenn Bleck say they wanted to insight a revolution ... little do these poor people know they only want to put millions in their pocket and stir up the dumb masses. Let's just hope this isn't a normal course of events for the extreme right and left as we move forward.

Obviously this guy was a whack job. A career criminal already with 2 strikes against him. He was obviously up to no good (body armour, really!)and now we know his intended targets. Fortunately for all of us, CHP got to him first!! And, he did all this on a Saturday night, the buildings/employees wouldn't be back until Monday!!Who knows how many would hav been injured or killed in taking down this maniac.

This has little to nothing to do with Glenn Beck. This has everything to do with EVIL. He is a loser who should be spending the rest of his days in a very small cell. That is, unless the ACLU takes up his cause and claims somehow he was 'mistreated as a child'. That would be totally ironic, wouldn't it, considering the ACLU was one of his targets.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
