This is Breaking news so not many details are out yet. If I was a betting man I would say this is the first of many false flag operations to gain control of our guns.

It just seems way to odd in such a well policed area. It smells of a government operation. As details surface I will keep everyone up to date.

Maybe it was an unemployed, foreclosed on, pissed off American white male getting a little pay back on his corrupt and tyrannical government. Ahhh well I can dream can't I? LOL.

The North East section of Washington D.C. is a pretty rough and tumble area with a lot of violent gang activity.

It could always be just a spill over of vendetta or drug related violence.

Agreed, people tend to forget that Washington DC has an astronomically high crime rate due to its strict gun control laws (the stricter the gun control laws the higher the crime rate) and another factor which is not PC to discuss but very obvious when you look at the demographic factors of the most crime plagued areas.

Police say they shot and killed man near US Capitol after he brandished weapon.
Not many details available. Why would somebody brandish a weapon in a populated area?

Why would they not try to negotiate him down? Seems to be a little overkill. No pun intended. I still am thinking false flag.

My guess is they did not try to talk him down as the Police are worried that with all the people losing there homes and savings are starting to look around and see what is going on! And this feeling is spreading across the country.

This issue is getting bigger every day and more news about what is going on is getting out to the people at a rate they cannot control. So it seems to me that they ,the police are being told to use more force to try to stop this from happening . But it will not work as the force one uses the more worried the people get.

It was just announced a week or so ago that the company's are starting to fold and the land value is dropping for those type.
To me this is starting to explain why we are seeing more of the outlandish things done by the police!

And also we have to think about what they are being told about what is going on and or coming, even if it may not be true.
This is a government getting worried about what has been done and worried what the people are going to do to them as the word is getting out.

Who knows what happened?

Brandishing a weapon can mean that he pointed the gun at them or other civilians. Doesn't mean that he lifted his shirt to show that he had a gun.

Lets wait for more then a one sentance article before we start accusing the cops of using excessive force.
