?? You tell me.
The gunman in Sunday’s Sikh Temple shooting is a Colorado native who led a music group that has been classified as one supporting white-supremacist ideology. He was honorably discharged from the Army in 1998 after six years of service.
The 40-year-old Army veteran identified as the shooter inside an Oak Creek Sikh Temple on Sunday was a Colorado native who sang and played guitar in a band that may have had white-supremacist motives.
Wade Michael Page, who was residing in a rented duplex in Cudahy, appeared in 2010 in an interview on Label56.com — which the Southern Poverty Law Center identified as being a white supremacist website. The discussion focused around his band, End Apathy.
“I am originally from Colorado and had always been independent, but back in 2000 I set out to get involved and wanted to basically start over,” Page said in the interview. “End Apathy began in 2005 and the concept was based on trying to figure out what it would take to actually accomplish positive results in society and what is holding us back. … (My lyric topics focus on) sociological issues, religion, and how the value of human life has been degraded by being submissive to tyranny and hypocrisy that we are subjugated to.”
Among music posted on his MySpace page are songs titled, “Self Destruct,” “Usefull Idiots,” “GCPC,” “Submission,” and “Insignificant.” The MySpace page includes photos of Page. Fox6now.com also has a gallery of photos of Page.
According to the band’s bio on My Space, “End Apathy began in 2005 with roots in old school hardcore punk and metal influences. The music is a sad commentary on our sick society and the problems that prevent true progress.”
At least seven people have been confirmed dead, and three in critical condition at Froedtert Hospital. Page, who was armed with a 9-millimeter, semi-automatic pistol during Sunday’s shooting, according to CBSnews.com, was also shot and killed by a police officer during the incident.
Witnesses described the attacker “as a bald, white man, dressed in a white T-shirt and black pants and with a 9/11 tattoo on one arm,” according to WPTV.com.
While no motive has been officially determined in the incident, officials have described it as act of domestic terrorism.
Sikh Indians, because of religious tradition, wear turbans to cover their uncut hair and have longer beards. They are often mistaken for Muslims and have been the targets of racially-motivated crimes by anti-Muslim people and groups.
A search on Wisconsin Court System Circuit Court Access shows no criminal — or even traffic — violation history for Page. According to BuzzFeed.com, Page pleaded guilty in 1994 to a Texas misdemeanor for causing criminal damage to property between $20 and $200. He also went by the last name Pierson.
His landlord, Kurt Weins, told the Journal-Sentinel he was surprised by what had happened.
“I had (Page) checked out and he definitely checked out,” Weins told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “The cops told me they don’t want me to say nothing right now.”
The mother of the suspected shooter’s landlord told Patch the man police are investigating as the gunman was “quiet” and that he had just broken up with his girlfriend.
Page served 6 years in the Army he was discharged for “under honorable conditions,” according to Fort Bragg Patch, citing a Foxnews.com report. That is less than an honorable discharge but not as severe as a dishonorable discharge.
Officials at Fort Bragg on Monday “could not confirm” Page’s assignment at the psychological operations unit, where Fox News said he was placed, or at Fort Bragg.
