In 2004 he was arrested in Seattle for shooting a construction worker car tires where he described it as "an anger-fueled blackout." He told police he had witnessed Sep. 11, 2001 terrorist attack in New York and "how these events had disturbed him," according to the police report. Mr. Alexis joined the Navy in May 2007, according to Navy records. While stationed in Fort Worth, he was arrested on Sept. 4, 2010, after an upstairs neighbor reported that he had fired shots up into her apartment. The neighbor said Alexis had often angrily confronted her about making too much noise, and she told police he scared her. "[The neighbor] told me that she is terrified of Aaron and feels that this was done intentionally," the arresting officer wrote on the police report. In 2011 he was discharged from the Navy due to many reported cases of him being mentally unstable with two incidents of weapon violations. He was pushed out of the military because of repeated incidents and arrests given a General Discharge which is not an Honorable Discharge; this meant he should have never been able to get the clearance he was granted by the vetting contract company. The icing on the cake; Alexis was hearing voices and was under treated for paranoia and a sleep disorder since August by the Veterans Administration; why didn’t they report him?
Our Presidents and Congresses, current and past, takes our tax money, cuts and diverts funds every year from the Defense Department making it weaker, and gives the majority of these funds to people who are lazy and refuses to work. This shows our military community once again pays the price with their lives due to a liberal maladroit political mentality constantly presented by our federal elected officials. They won't look at Aaron Alexis who had a General Discharge and would never pass a proper background check to work on a federal installation, they won't look at the violent arrest record he had which the contractor doing the security background check had to be sleeping to miss, and they won't check all the other red flags which were ignored to fix the problem but they will go after your guns. This shows the exact reason we need our guns; you can't trust the government; this is the same people who have been illegally spying on us and violating our 4th Amendment, and you want me to trust them to protect me? Your politician is imbecilic to think we will be protected or protected better by the government. If you have a politician like this; VOTE THEM OUT! Would you put your children in the hands of the government to be protected or do you believe your hands would be better?
