Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“The ritual of mass shootings must include instant questions about the killer’s precise motive, as if his horrific deed can be truly fathomed. The most pertinent answer to that question in Texas as elsewhere is the killer did it because he could — he could get the firepower, a viciously effective Ruger assault rifle, and register his grievance as something supreme in his mind by applying destructive force upon the innocent.”

–From a Nov. 6 New York Times editorial, “Mass Shootings Don’t Have to Be Inevitable.”

Here’s a summary of the latest developments as of Oct. 6

    Congratulations Bovino! We’re blessed to have you among our protectors in Flagler County!

    I hope the FBI makes him take a course on ethics, so he can come back and teach the jailers that it is unethical to have sex with inmates. Four cases of this that we know about this year, I mean REALLY!
