Authorities suspect Ortega has been in the area for weeks, coming back and forth to the Washington Mall.Â Before the shooting, he was detained by local police at an abandoned house. U.S. Park police say Ortega may have spent time blending in with Occupy D.C. protesters.
Apparently the Secret Service raided the Occupy DC folks looking for this guy. If this had been a tea party, I can promise you that it’d be all over CSGV’s insurrectionist timeline. In fact, if this guy had even a hint of being right wing, I can promise you Brady would be all atwitter about another dangerous nut with a gun.
But since the left-wing occupy movement has embraced this guy as one of their own, he’s going to get a pass from these groups, who apparently only care about some kinds of gun violence. If you want to understand why Bloomberg is the future of gun control, this is why. It’s really hard to take them seriously anymore. I follow CSGV, Brady, VPC and ProtestEasyGuns because it’s worth a laugh, not because I’m worried about what they are going to do next.
