Triple Killer Claimed Panic Attacks

Ali Syed

Last July Saddleback College student Ali Syed claimed he suffered from Deficit Attention Disorder, panic attacks and anxiety. On February 19 he murdered a girl in his parents’ Ladera Ranch home. During a subsequent police chase he shot and killed two more people before committing suicide upon being stopped at Katella and Wanda in Orange.

His disabilities were listed on an application for special testing accommodations, according to the Lariat. It was submitted after he met with an academic counselor. Syed’s grade average was .62 at the beginning of the Spring 2013 semester.

Syed used a shotgun given to him as a gift from his father. He left a suicide note on his computer an hour before the rampage, but details were not released by Sheriff’s investigators.

I hope that the ignorant or the deliberately malicious amongst us, don’t use this latest tragedy (that we ALL created, by the way, through our ignorance and our cowardice, like all of the other tragedies), to allow our criminal Federal politicians and bureaucrats to further erode our sacred Constitution, the SUPREME law of our land, and specifically, to destroy our sacred Second Amendment.

Ron Paul is my President — the Defender of our Constitution. END THE FED! I LOVE Mission Viejo!

Our founding fathers understood the basic intrinsic right for a father to buy his, admittedly, mentally troubled son a shotgun and that right completely trumps the rights of other people to live, because that’s like socialism and living together is so overrated.
