Jerad Miller has been identified as one of the two shooters responsible for killing two police officers and a civilian during a “revolution” this past weekend. He and his wife, Amanda Miller, entered a Cici’s Pizza restaurant and killed the two officers, both of whom were married with young children.
Jerad has a rap sheet that should have prevented him from owning a handgun, but that didn’t stop him from being able to acquire the weaponry necessary to pull off this act of violence.
At the scene of the crime, the Millers draped a “Don’t Tread On Me” flag over the bodies of the slain officers, a symbol that has become the preferred imagery of the Tea Party GOP.
The video below shows how deranged and unstable Jerad truly was, yet the Tea Party Republicans still think men like him should be able to carry deadly weapons without any oversight:
