Pseudo-commando Military Tactics

Pseudo-commando Military Tactics ---

Ninjapundit  Security Incidents by Category |Timeline

Mass murder attackers are armed and dressed for combat using military weapons and tactics, using backpack, vest pockets for body-carried ammo. Usually armed with some combination of a long gun (shotgun or semi-automatic assault rifle) handgun (semiautomatic or revolver) knife, and sometimes also using bombs or incendiary devices. Random criminals or murders only need one weapon, and only use one method of killing.

 Pseudo-commandos carry more guns and knives than necessary to harm one targeted person, and in the case of Elliot Rodgers combine multiple attack modes (vehicular homicide, stabbing, shooting) and targets (college sorority, convenience store, church service, Chinese students) as if it was carefully planned and scripted for maximum effect with an elaborate manifesto / suicide note which is always accepted by authorities without question by the media instead of being recognized as a cover story for what was actually a covert military attack on a civilian target.
