This happened right here in Branchburg, where I work. A clerk at the Quik Chek across the street (where I go!!!!) spotted this ******* looking suspicious. The motel is about a mile from here. I absolutely cannot believe they aired one brief story on ABC news lastnight and that's it. I would have thought it would have made national headlines. They also found a turban in the guys room.

I guess he can't use "Deer hunting" as an alibi. If I recall no need for body armour.....deer don't shoot back.

Um. Sikhs wear turbans, Muslims do not. Sounds like a whack job. Glad they arrested him before he could do anything.

From what I heard it wasn't connected to a terrorist plot - rather one very sick individual - but yes, I'd consider it terrorism even if not connected to someone else...just a terrorist of one.

Amy, I'm just saying. They made a big deal out of that fact on the ONE news story I saw about it.

So it did make national news then?

yeah. GMA covered it. They also said something about they *think* he was awol - your article sounds like he's either not awol or has been awol for years...

Yea, from 7online : Woodson joined the Navy in his 20s and deserted after just a year.

Bail is only $75,000. Unbelievable. This scares the crap out of me that he was so close to my company. We have enough chemicals here to blow Branchburg right off the map.

It is scary; I saw it on the news too and they did make a big deal about finding the turban. I think he is just a crazy person (a crazy person with access to a lot of weapons), and everyone was very lucky that the convenience store worker reported it.

That may be, but sounds like a xenophobic report. People have been "going postal" in the US for a long, long time. Until they link him to an extremist group, how do you know he's not just a whack job who snapped?

That's not to say that it isn't scary, especially when it happens so close to home.

It's not big news because he is not Muslim and he didn't actually shoot anyone. If he was Muslim it would be big news. Or if he opened fire it would be big news. As it stands now, he is just one of many nutjobs in this country who amassed a pile of weapons (legal or illegal).

Yea, but you don't have to be Muslim to be a terrorist. :shocked: I can't wait to hear what other info comes out about him.

I agree. It just makes it more headline worthy if someone is Muslim.
