productions and police/FBI press releases.
Yeah, but the facts are in there. There's a trail of indicators.
You may choose to believe all you have been told. I accept the reported information, but I also understand that nothing that would interfere with the
narrative will be allowed to enter public dissemination. Color me 'jaded' in regards to anything which can be made politically 'expedient.'

It depends on who is exploiting the crisis, and what for. Since this could be any of several parties (including the media itself,) the question
cannot be answered with a statement of fact, only speculation. Of one thing I can be relatively certain...
They want us to hear - Exactly what you have heard thus far, and likely not much else.
The less repugnant answer would be that this man was a domestic terrorist, and not a troubled vet, a pointless distinction with no merit when measured
against the tragic loss of life. But it would make an objective difference to me.
