An hours-long standoff at a Louisiana bank began around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday when a gunman — identified by police as 20-year-old Fuaed (FOO-od) Abdo Ahmed — took two women and a man captive at the Tensas State Bank branch in St. Joseph. One of his demands to authorities was that they get an implanted device out of his head. http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2013/08/14/us/ap-us-louisiana-bank-hostages.html?ref=us
On a Facebook page under Ahmed’s name that was set up in the spring, Ahmed describes himself as a native of Fresno, Calif. On the page, he is seen in photos smiling and wearing a baseball cap backward, and with friends.
Ahmed discusses philosophy of life from the Tao Te Ching, a 6th century BC Chinese text.
Strangely, Ahmed’s final post, made Tuesday just hours before the hostage standoff began, is of a photo of a man with a sword attacking a tank. Under the photo is a quote from the novel “If This Goes On,” a 1940 science-fiction novel by Robert Heinlein that speculates on life in a futuristic American theocratic Christian society.
Despite the 1966 Texas Tower shootings where student Charles Whitman climbed a 27-story tower on the University of Texas campus shooting dead 14 people, Colin Ferguson was the first mass shooter in recent US history. Although the 90’s represented a deadly mass shooting period for the Great Britain, Ferguson marked the start in the US. Columbine came later.
On December 7, 1993, Colin Ferguson boarded an east-bound Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) commuter train drew a gun and killed six people and injured another 19.
Several other passengers ran forward to grab his arms and legs and help hold him pinned across a three-seat row with his head towards the window and legs towards the aisle. While he was pinned, Ferguson said, “O, God, what did I do? What did I do?
Ferguson’s trial was broadcast live by local media and Court TV, and was constantly overshadowed by the O.J. Simpson murder case going on simultaneously on the West Coast
He admitted bringing the gun onto the train, but claimed that he fell asleep. He found a man who was willing to testify that the government implanted a computer chip in Ferguson’s brain. This individual, Raul Diaz, was a parapsychologist from Manhattan and claimed during a press conference on the courthouse steps to have witnessed an Oriental man press a chip into Ferguson’s head prior to the attack. According to Diaz, the Oriental man told him to behold what he was about to do prior to pushing the button. “He was lasered out by a remote-control device,” Mr. Diaz told reporters outside the courtroom. “He was zapped, just like that, right out of the twilight zone” and was “commanded to go up and down the aisle shooting people.”
