Right Wing Church Shooter


The gunman who yesterday shot up a Tennessee church that embraced gays and other liberal causes left behind a long letter fuming that he couldn't find a job and expressing a profound 'hatred for the liberal movement,' police said today.

Jim D. Adkisson, 58, ranted that 'liberals and gays' taking jobs had prevented him from finding work. He wrote that he expected to keep shooting parishioners until the police showed up and killed him, Knoxville, Tenn., Police Chief Sterling Owen told a news conference."
