Searching for "inner peace"...with a gun

The way to inner peace is not the piece in your hand. Put it down. Take a deep breath.

Why, why, why? Are you even up there?
CLOVIS, New Mexico - [Did God tell him to do it?] The teenager suspected of killing [shooting to death] two people and injuring four others in a public library had been searching for "inner peace" shortly before the shooting, the youth's Christian pastor said.
  • CORRECTION: NM-Library Shooting story of Aug. 31, the AP, relying on information provided by Clovis police, erroneously reported the age of one of the victims. Alexis Molina is 21, not 20. ( A corrected version of the story is here.
Whites don't kill people, black guns do.
White Christian male Nathaniel Jouett, 16, started attending Living Word Church of God three months ago and appeared to be turning his life around after having contemplated suicide several months earlier, Pastor David Stevens said.
Jouett is now awaiting charges for Monday's deadly rampage. Authorities say their work has only begun as they talk to his family and friends and comb through social media posts looking for clues as to what may have prompted the violence.
Can I kill for God, too? - You do, and I'll kill you! I want you to stay away from church.
Police on Tuesday confirmed that the young suspect, who was seen being led in handcuffs from the Clovis-Carver Public Library after Monday's shooting was Jouett, a student at Clovis High School.

"It's just more than we can comprehend. I don't know what happened," Stevens said. "His mind had to snap. I don't know any other way to explain it. He was a good kid. He had straightened his life out."
Authorities plan to charge Jouett with two counts of first-degree murder [but no domestic terrorism charges because he's white and Christain and affluent, so how would that look to the world?], four counts of assault with intent to commit a violent felony [like murder in the first degree], four counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and one count of child abuse [and maybe also littering because of the shells he left on the library floor], Police Chief Douglas Ford said.

The Associated Press generally does not identify juveniles accused of crimes. But [the AP will make an exception because he's been a particularly bad boy] it is identifying Jouett because of the seriousness of the crime and because authorities said they plan to file a motion requesting the case's transfer from the juvenile system to adult court.
You want me to kill this goat for You, Lord?
There's no indication Jouett knew the victims, and authorities have yet to determine a motive. They also are investigating where he obtained the two handguns believed to have been used in the shooting.
Clovis Mayor David Lansford said the initial shock that reverberated through the community is beginning to wane, only to be replaced by heartbreak and a call for answers.

He should read these good Christian books and repent of his handguns. - Amen. (AP)
My people love guns.
"It's such a senseless tragedy, and there really isn't a reason for it," Lansford told reporters Tuesday. "I think when it's all said and done, you can come up with a lot of explanations. But I don't think anyone will ever be able to put a reason on why these kinds of things happen."
Jouett was a sophomore at Clovis High School and appeared to be doing well after a troubled period, Stevens said. The pastor said Jouett's father had started coming to church with him.

He did the right thing. I hate libraries, too.
The pastor said Jouett, who was dating his [underage] daughter, was on a two-day suspension because of a fight at school when the shooting happened. Jouett had said he fought back after another boy hit him, but there was nothing to indicate the suspect was overly upset about it, Stevens said. More
