Student Wanted To Kill Officer To Join Hells Angels

August 29, 2012  | 

A North Carolina State University student was involuntarily committed last month at the V.A. Hospital in Durham after telling campus police he planned to go on a killing spree, according to a court document.

The student, a former Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq, told officers he had been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and bipolar disorder, WRAL-TV reports. He also said he would daydream in class about robbing banks and killing people, as well as draw maps and outline the weapons he would use.

The student also said he wanted to kill a law enforcement officer to gain access to the Hells Angels motorcycle gang.

It's good that there was some intervention before something terrible happened. It's always tough to hear about a young man coming home after duty and having mental problems. What scares me the most is that he thinks killing a law enforcement officer would get him into the hells angels. I hope the hells angels are smart enough to not make that one of the requirements to enter the gang.

We think the cost of these two wars are expensive. Just wait for the bills to mount up for all the vets who not only come back with PTDS or Bipolar which is incurable, but controllable. The vets that are deaf, blind and loss limbs from IEd's. This will also be tough mentally and physically to handle. The only bright star is they get treated better than my baby killing Nam friends. The HA's wouldn't touch this guy. Just what they need more heat for shooting a LEO that has nothing to do with the club to begin with.

Yeah, and I heard that somebody said, that they heard somebody say, that some guy was saying that he wanted to kill a homeless man, so he could gain access to the Fullerton police department.

Stupid article.
