If you’re watching one of the mainstream cable channels, you probably haven’t heard about this horrific mass shooting in Spring, Texas; the mass media seem completely uninterested: 5 Children, 1 Adult Shot Dead in Spring Subdivision; SWAT Standoff Underway With Shooter.
SPRING, Texas - Six people were shot dead, including five children, Wednesday afternoon in north Harris County, according to Harris County Pct. 4 deputies.
The incident happened at a home in the 700 block of Leaflet in the Enchanted Oaks subdivision.
Deputies responded to a shooting and found the victims. Life Flight was called to the scene.
The victims were ages five to 40. Five children and one adult died.
It looks like we have another sovereign citizen trying to murder police.
***CAVEAT*** It is not yet confirmed that the links below are one and the same with this person.
A Bureau of Land Management ranger and a California highway patrolman were shot during an armed confrontation on Saturday, the Sacramento Bee reported.
Authorities identified the suspect as Brent Douglas Cole, 60, according to the Bee. The shooting took place in the Tahoe National Forest in Nevada County, Calif., which borders Nevada. The BLM ranger had called for the highway patrolman’s assistance, according to the Bee.
The injuries for the law enforcement officers were not life-threatening, the newspaper reported. Cole was shot as well and was in stable condition at a nearby hospital as of Monday.
Googling Brent Douglas Cole leads you to a load of links at kookspiracy sites like OPED News, United Truth Seekers, and what might be the suspect’s twitter feed. **NONE OF THIS IS YET CONFIRMED by authorities or media, if you share do so with disclaimers.***
All of that said, this guy appears to be three sacks of hammers full of Sovereign Citizen crazy.
And … he appears to be anti-semitic as well:

The suspect also appears to be a dyed in the wool Birther: see obamaconspiracy.org.
It’s also possible that he and a relative were served an eviction notice in Anchorage Alaska back in 2007.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, in research shared with TPM on Tuesday afternoon, linked Cole to an online profile in which he described himself as “a sovereign American Citizen attempting to thwart the obvious conspiracy and subterfuges of powers inimical to the United States.”
“Sovereigns believe that they — not judges, juries, law enforcement or elected officials — get to decide which laws to obey and which to ignore, and they don’t think they should have to pay taxes,” the SPLC has written in its summary of sovereign citizen beliefs.
Someone using the name Brent Douglas Cole uploaded Google documents that were purportedly filed in his defense for the January arrest. Those documents have not been independently verified by TPM, but they carry the same case number as the firearms case.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal has new details on the anti-government couple from hell, with the scary news that they were apparently planning to take over a courthouse building and execute public officials as part of their delusional crime spree.
The couple may have been planning a larger attack on an unidentified court building, but police said Monday the two appeared to be working alone and not part of a larger plot. …
Kelley Fielder lived next door to the Millers and called them her “best friends.” She said she didn’t know they were “that crazy.”
She was holding documents for the couple that included detailed plans to take over a courthouse and execute public officials. The file box full of documents, along with three empty rifle cases and an empty box for handcuffs, were confiscated by investigators during a search of Fielder’s apartment.
This is an eerie echo of Friday’s attack by “sovereign citizen” Dennis Marx, in which he tried (and failed) to drive an SUV into a Georgia courthouse, carrying weapons, explosives and zip ties to secure hostages.
Bad right wing craziness is afoot.
Meanwhile in Las Vegas, we have another mass shooting by apparent anti-government lunatics; a report at KTNV: Two Suspects Dead After Police Shooting at Walmart Near Nellis and Stewart - www.ktnv.com.
Two police officers were said to have been shot after two suspects took their guns and ammunition a local Cici’s Pizza near Nellis and Stewart. They were taken to University Medical Center. Their condition is currently unknown.
The two suspects allegedly yelled ‘This is a revolution’ as they left the restaurant and headed to Walmart.
When the suspects entered Walmart, they shot and killed one citizen before going to the back of the store and engaging what officers called a suicide pact.
More details from KLAS-TV: UPDATE: Police Source: 1 Officer Dead, Following Shooting Near N - 8 News NOW.
Police say witnesses told them the suspects took the police officers’ gear and, as they were walking out of the restaurant after the shooting, they said, “tell the police the revolution has begun.”
Today in Georgia’s Forsyth County, yet another far right “sovereign citizen” attempted to take over a courthouse with multiple explosive devices, weapons and a large amount of ammunition, wounding a deputy before he was killed in a shoot-out. The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported minute by minute: Report: Forsyth Deputy Shot, Suspect Dead, Courthouse Evacuated.
A Forsyth County sheriff’s deputy has been shot in the leg at the courthouse in Cumming, and a suspect is reported dead. Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporters and photographers are on the way to the scene. Return to ajc.com for minute-by-minute updates on the situation.
12:46 p.m. - Forsyth Sheriff Duane Piper said the actions of the wounded deputy, who was working the doorway of the courthouse when he saw Dennis Marx drive up, likely saved many lives. “It would be a guess to think how many lives he saved had he not engaged him right there,” Piper said. “Mr. Marx’s intention was to get inside that front door and to take hostages.”
12:39 p.m. - Suspect Dennis Marx had not been living in his house for 10 days. Deputies are searching that house now for explosives and booby traps. Sheriff Duane Piper said Marx “was known to us before. Quite a few things are under investigation right now.” He said many of the explosives that Marx was carrying were homemade. “He had been planning it for a while,” Piper said.
12:36 p.m. - Piper said suspect Marx was armed with multiple explosives and lots of ammunition on himself and inside the car. He also had water, supplies and “zip-tie” restraining devices. “He came for the purpose of occupying the courthouse,” the sheriff said.
12:21 p.m. - A law enforcement official familiar with the situation said explosives are suspected because Marx is a “sovereign citizen” well-known to local authorities. They are concerned about explosives because sovereign citizens are known to be involved with explosives.
12:15 p.m. - The sheriff has confirmed to Channel 2 that the suspect is Dennis Marx. The station reports that Marx has identified himself as a sovereign citizen, part of an anti-govenment group that has been tied to violent attacks on law enforcement around the country. He was due in court today to plead out on drug and weapons charges.

Yet another horrifying mass murder, this time by a highly privileged young man who hated women.
Police said they were examining a video posted on YouTube in which a man, sitting in a car, said he had planned an attack in Isla Vista because he was sexually frustrated and had been snubbed by women. The young man, who said he was 22, described himself as a virgin and said he planned an act of retribution because women had not found him attractive.
“We’re investigating that as evidence we believe is connected to the crime,” Brown said.
In the video, which the man said he was making on the eve of the attack, he said he planned to shoot students at a sorority near UC Santa Barbara.
“For the last eight years of my life, ever since I hit puberty, I have been forced to endure an existence of loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desires, all because girls have never been attracted to me,” he said, looking into a camera on the dashboard of his vehicle with palm trees in the background.
“I will punish all of you for it,” he said with a sinister laugh, saying he would enter a sorority. “I will slaughter every single spoiled, stuck-up blond slut I see inside there.”

The worst aspect of 'typical familyism' (as media-merchandised) is that it glorifies involuntary homogenization.
