Theatre shooting update

I'm still not convinced that Mujtaba Jabbar's "random" shooting of Paul Schrum in an Owings Mills, Maryland theatre was a simple case of a nutter gone nuttiest.

In typical antique media fashion, the Baltimore Sun continues to report that Jabbar was mentally ill, their sole, uncorroborated source for that piece of information being Jabbar's sister. There's been no probing (or at least none reported) into Jabbar's religious beliefs or practices.

But then again, it would just be so wrong to profile someone on the basis of their ethnic background.
