What happened in Las Vegas was really strange. There is surely more to the story that hasn’t come out yet. We just don’t know what it is. Whirli, yes there are programs available for the homeless but if you have mental illness who knows what she was thinking.
The “3 hots and a cot” possibility occurred to me concerning the local drive-by shooting we had last weekend. No explanation has been forthcoming yet. The victim was totally random. There was just one shot fired. All that has come out is that the guy was unemployed and that he had the location of the police dept programmed into his GPS. Though he was a 5 hour drive from home he did not have a suitcase or anything with him that travelers would have. He fired the shot and 7 minutes later turned himself in at the police station. It seems it was all planned.
