I am slightly confused by Paul's statement though. What I've found says that Capitol Police provides the security details for members of Congress. So did Scalise hire his own private security detail?


Scalise is Minority Whip so he might get a detail
(I see Flatbush already mentioned)

very very unfortunate. hope nobody tries to milk this politically, but these days it seems everything gets politicized.

ETA: Shot by security detail who himself was shot


Like, he shot the bad guy after having been shot? What a total bad ass.

Imagine putting that on your resume.

If they had been a the Capitol at work...

Baseball team, another way for congress to not do it's actual job. I am going to go with he's a general politician hater, not a left-right version.

Rand Paul was asked by a FOX reporter if he himself had security hired, to which Rand Paul correctly answered with "That is not to be discussed."

But I think Paul confirmed that Scalise had security with him and that his security was the first responders.

The part I'm confused by is that Paul said that Scalise's detail acted faster than Capitol Police. But shouldn't Scalise's detail have been made up of Capitol Police?

None other than POTUS #45 Donald J Trump.

Anyone else hearing that Texas GOP Rep. Roger Williams has also been injured in this incident. Can't find any official confirmation of it.

-Just to update, this appears to be untrue.

I wonder if that replaces losing part of your brain. Scalise will always have a limp reminding him.

And Gabby Giffords? I guess that it was her fault she got shot, being a far leftists and all.



She got a boat named after her.



A boat with guns on it.

He had his own personal Capitol Police detail and also there were Capitol Police stationed at the front of the park, apparently, each morning of practice.

I figured that was the case. Just the way Paul phrased it made it sound like Scalise's detail was not connected to Capitol Police.

Just leaving a quick update:

Two Capitol police officers and two or three congressional staff members were among the wounded, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said on CNN.

The shooter "was going after elected officials," Brooks said, noting that the location of the congressional practice session was well known in the area.

One person, not a member of Congress, was shot in the chest and appeared to be the most seriously wounded, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) told reporters.

LA Times
This makes me sick! As long as the MSM continues to feed this hate we will continue to see these things happen.
Seems maybe the news has turned into a terrorist organization. Wonder if CNN will call and take responsibility the way ISIS does?

Stooge: I'll calibrate the psychotronic device and place the order in with the CIA to procure an Oswald.

And then everything goes according to plan.

FYI, the gubment never attacks itself. They shoot up we the peoples venues, maybe. But never ever shoot at each other.

The Kennedys were the last time this happened and that was a long time ago.
