    Suspect might have had an explosive device in his vehicle too. Recruiters are both in "serious" condition.

    Not cool at all. Try having at least a little respect instead of politicizing this.

    My heart goes out to the families of both recruiters. Not much else you can say, really.

    (USA TODAY) A Muslim convert who said he was opposed to the U.S. military shot two soldiers outside an Arkansas recruiting station, killing one of the soldiers, police said Monday.
    "This individual appears to have been upset with the military, the Army in particular, and that's why he did what he did," Little Rock Police Lt. Terry Hastings said in a phone interview.
    "He has converted to Muslim here in the past few years," Hastings said. "To be honest we're not completely clear on what he was upset about. He had never been in the military."
    Hastings identified the man in custody as Carlos Bledsoe, 24, of Little Rock, who was going by the name of Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad. He did not have further details. The names of the soldiers were not released, nor was the condition of the wounded soldier.

    Wow. I really didn't expect this to be the case and hoped it wouldn't be.

    I figured it would turn out to be something personal, not political/religious.
