John Houser Lafayette Theater Shooting

John Houser Lafayette Theater Shooting --- ===

White Christian terrorist was is on the same team and acts the same as islamic terrorists, but not classified as a terrorist attack because he was a "lone wolf".

July 23, 2015 3 killed including suspect suicide, 9 injured  John Houser Lafayette Theater Shooting Mass shooting occurred at the Grand 16 movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana.John Russell Houser, (white right wing Christian pro-jihadist anti-American neo-confederate neo-Nazi  mentally ill anti-feminist) age 59 opened fire during a showing of the feminist comedy film Trainwreck, killing two people and injuring nine others before committing suicide. In a journal, he said he had hated America for 30 years and thanked and approved of the confederate flag waving black church mass shooter Dylann Roof though authorities do not believe the obvious possibility that the two cases could be connected. While authorities ignored any terrorist or political motive, on the liberal Huffington Post, political science professor John A. Tures called the attack just the "latest in a string of lone wolf domestic terrorists like Dylann Roof, the Charleston shooter, with a strong political agenda."

Connected by media: In the next month   police in Tennessee shot and killed a mentally ill homeless man who attacked a Nashville-area movie theater with a pellet gun, an ax and pepper spray, and jurors in Colorado were weighing a death sentence for James Holmes, who killed 12 moviegoers and wounded 70 others at a movie theater in 2012. One of a series of terrorist attacks on movie and concert theaters in Paris.

e 59-year-old Alabama man who killed two people and himself on Thursday at a Lafayette, Louisiana movie theater had a long Internet trail in which he cheered the demise of the U.S. and “saluted” Muslim fundamentalists.  The shooter, identified as John Russell Houser, was no radical Islamist, however. Instead, he appears to have been a Christian who found kinship with others who oppose what they believe is the U.S.’s anti-religion liberalism

 on Jan. 10. His profile entry reads: “Hitler accomplished far more than any other through ‘pragmatically forming.'”

And in one thread, Houser commented on so-called Muslim “no-go” zones which are said to exist in some neighborhoods in some European cities.

“Bring no-go to the US. I want in. Yes, I am saluting the fundamentalist Muslims. They have stood against evil,” Houser wrote.

And in another, Houser cheered Muslim extremists for defending their religion.


“Yes it’s true, Muslims are alone in shutting down liberals that mock their God. They have my complete Christian respect.”

“I’m with all who hate the filth farm known as the US,” he wrote in another post entitled “Islamists and ‘the right to offen

2015 Lafayette shooting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_Lafayette_shooting
On July 23, 2015, a shooting occurred at the Grand 16 movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana.[3] John Russell Houser, age 59,[4][5] opened fire during a showing of the film Trainwreck, killing two people and injuring nine others before committingsuicide.[6][7][8][9]

Shooting[edit]

The shooting occurred in theater 14[10] during the 7:10 p.m. screening of Trainwreck, held at the Grand 16 movie theater in Lafayette, just 60 miles (97 km) west ofBaton Rouge.[2] Houser, 59, went to the theater alone, bought a ticket ten minutes late into the movie,[11] and sat for several minutes in the theater's second-to-last row. Including Houser,[12] there were 25 people in the theater and 300 people in the building.[13][14][15] Houser was armed with a Hi-Point .40-caliber handgun[1] and equipped with two 10-round magazines. Shortly before 7:30 p.m., he stood up and started shooting indiscriminately, firing at least 13 rounds from the handgun and reloading once. He killed two people and injured nine others.[16][17][18]
The first two people he shot were sitting right in front of him.[13] The shooting was contained to one theater.[19] After the shooting ended, Houser exited the theater through a side door and apparently tried to head for his vehicle while blending in with survivors. However, upon noticing police sirens, he retreated back inside the building and fired three more shots at fleeing moviegoers. Then, he committed suicide.[12][18][20][21][22]
Prior to the shooting, two police officers were already on duty at the 16-screen multiplex. Four other officers responded to the scene in less than a minute after receiving a 7:28 p.m. report of the shooting. After witnessing audiences fleeing and hearing gunshots, they made their way in the auditorium. Upon entering the theater, two-and-a-half minutes after arrival,[23] they found Houser dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the mouth.[13][24][25] His body remained inside the theater for several hours.[26]

Aftermath[edit]

Following the shooting, the other local Grand Theatre was also closed, while the entire area was locked down[17][27] as law enforcement officials searched for additional shooters.[23] The Louisiana State Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), the Lafayette Parish Sheriff, and Lafayette Police Department police participated in the investigation. Police believe the shooter acted alone, but have not confirmed a motive.[17][27][28][29]
Upon investigation, officials found that Houser had been staying in a nearby motel, a Motel 6, and discovered wigs, glasses, and disguises.[30] This led officials to believe that he intended on escaping before being cornered by police, leading to his suicide.[31] Furthermore, he illegally switched his license plates near an exit door to the theater, and in his motel room.[13]
On late Thursday night, the police investigated Houser's car, a blue 1995 Lincoln Continental, and found two suspicious objects with wires inside. Fearing that the items might be an explosive, the police halted the investigation. On the morning of July 24, they called the bomb squad, who blew up its windows and trunk. Similarly, investigators found three objects in the theater that they feared could be explosives and had them examined with a robot. An apartment complex behind the theater was evacuated as a precaution. The objects in the theater and in the car all turned out not to be dangerous.[13][23] A search of the car later turned up more disguises.[30]
Investigators recovered a journal belonging to Houser, which contained the name of the theater and the time and date of the screening of Trainwreck.[30] They were also studying posts he made online to determine a motive for the shooting.[12] They finished processing the crime scene at the theater on July 27.[32]
Questions were raised about how Houser was able to obtain the gun used in the shooting. It was initially reported that he had been involuntarily committed for mental health treatment in 2008, which would have legally prohibited him from purchasing firearms. However, it was later determined that he was able to purchase the gun because a judge never committed him and instead had him undergo a mental health evaluation. Once the evaluation was done, medical authorities either had to release him, convince him to commit himself voluntarily for treatment, or petition a court to force him to undergo treatment. They never petitioned the court, but it was unclear if Houser was released or voluntarily committed. His 2008 evaluation was never officially reported to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.[33][34]

John Russell "Rusty" Houser[15] (November 22, 1955 – July 23, 2015)[35] had a history of anti-government and far-rightviews,[36] including those on race, gender, and the future of the U.S.[37]

Personal life[edit]

Houser, who had been estranged from his family, was described as a wayfarer and a drifter.[38] According to law enforcement, he was raised in Columbus, Georgia, and graduated from Columbus High School and Columbus Technical College. According to an online LinkedIn account belonging to him, he also attended Columbus State University andFaulkner University.[18] He owned a number of bars in Georgia.[12] He once attended law school but dropped out.[18] His last recorded residence was in Phenix City, Alabama, where he purchased his firearm at the Money Miser Northside Pawn shop in February 2014.[18][34][39] In 2006, Houser tried to get a concealed carry permit, but he was denied it due to his arson arrest and domestic violence complaint.[20][40]

Mental health problems[edit]

Houser was said to have mental health issues,[41] for which he was treated in 2008 and 2009.[20] In 2008, Houser underwent a mental health evaluation.[34] According to his wife, he suffered from bipolar disorder.[12]
Houser had some previous arrest and complaint records including arson, domestic violence, stalking, and selling alcohol to a minor, although these records were at least a decade old. In 2008, his wife and daughter, along with his daughter's then-fiancé and his parents, issued a protective order against him during his mental health evaluation.[34] The order cited his violent and erratic behavior and reasoned that he had tried to stop his daughter and her fiancé from marrying. Houser's wife also hid his guns away from him for protection. After the order was issued, his family members apparently ceased contact with him.[33][40]
In 2014, when Houser was faced with the threat of eviction from his home in Alabama, he booby-trapped the house by twisting out and igniting the gas starter tube in the fireplace, after removing the logs, in an attempt to make the house catch on fire.[42] In March 2015, a week after his wife filed for divorce, Houser called her and threatened her, then went to a retirement community where his mother lived. There, he threatened to commit suicide outside if she didn't give him money. The mother called Houser's wife and was urged by her to have him hospitalized again. Instead, she gave Houser $5,000.[15][43][44]

Prior to the shooting[edit]

Houser is said to have entered Louisiana around July 2 or 3 and spent his time exploring the state along Interstate 10, apparently searching for a location to attack.[22][45] During the week of July 13, Houser visited a food bank in Lake Charles twice and requested aid from them.[46] He had been at the Grand 16 theater at least once before,[18] and had also visited several other movie theaters in the state.[47] According to witnesses at one theater, Houser was dressed up to look like a woman and was behaving erratically.[45] Houser also appeared to have made some getaway plans.[18][39] His only known connection to Lafayette was an uncle who once lived there, but died in 1980.[1][13]
On July 27, The Hollywood Reporter reported that investigators believed Houser chose to commit his attack in a theater playing Trainwreck due to its feminist themes and characters, as well as its lead actor's Jewish background. Houser was said to have been a misogynist and praised the actions of Adolf Hitler on online message boards.[48]

Victims[edit]

Two women were killed by Houser in the shooting. One died at the scene, while the other died at a nearby hospital.[26] They are:[15][19][25][49]
  • Mayci Breaux, age 21, of Franklin, Louisiana, who died at the theater. She was a student at Louisiana State University Eunice and worked at the Coco Eros boutique. She died from a single gunshot wound. She was accompanied at the theater by her boyfriend, Matthew Rodriguez, who was injured in the neck and in the armpit.
  • Jillian Johnson, age 33, of Lafayette, who died at the hospital. She operated a gift and toy shop in Lafayette and played ukulele and guitar for a band called The Figs. She died from two gunshot wounds. She was accompanied at the theater by her friend Julia Egedahl, who was injured in the torso and suffered serious fractures.
The injuries of the survivors ranged from light to critical and were inflicted either from gunshots and/or during accidents while fleeing. The victims' ages ranged from the late teens to their 60s.[19] Among the injuries were two women who were friends and employees at a local high school. One of them, a librarian, jumped on top of the second woman, a schoolteacher, to save her life and was shot through the leg. Both women were ultimately shot, but the woman who was jumped on was able to stand up and pull the fire alarm.[50] Also injured were the cousin of Louisiana Representative Charles Boustany and her husband.[51] Egedahl, the last victim discharged, leftOur Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center on August 14.[49] One victim was shot four times.[1]

Responses to the shooting[edit]

Political response[edit]

Theater and film response[edit]

Amy Schumer, who wrote and starred in the film being shown as the shooting occurred, posted on her Twitter account, "My heart is broken and all my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Louisiana."[56] She later joined U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, a cousin of her father's, in calling for stricter gun control and increased mental health funding.[57][58]
Universal Studios, the film's distributor, also released a statement, saying, "All of us at Universal Pictures send our heartfelt sympathies to the victims of this senseless tragedy and their families in Louisiana."[59]
The theater and its parent company, the Southern Theatres, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Security was increased at the other Grand movie theater in Kenner, Louisiana, and at the Esplanade Mall in Kenner.[16][60] They later issued a statement, in which they said, "All of us offer our thoughts and prayers to the victims and the community of Lafayette. We are grateful to all local officials and to the governor for their efforts."[59]
