Wade Michael Page, made by the US military

Wade Michael Page is the loser trained in the US military who went into the Sikh temple in Wisconsin killing innocent people. Where did he learn his hate from? Page served as a psychological operations specialist in the US Army from April 1992 to October 1998. Before he left the Army at the rank of specialist, he had received five Army Achievement Medals, two Army Good Conduct medals, and an Army Commendation Medal.

Not so good US military man goes off totally crazy once again- doesn’t even seem to know Sikhs from Muslims!

There’s not really too much to say about this. No doubt all the usual Right Wing idiots will be screaming for more more more guns again… Suspected Sikh temple shooter was discharged from Army after demotion And nobody but nobody hardly will mention the role the military plays in all this violence in the US.

OAK CREEK, Wis. — The suspect in the shooting rampage that left six people dead and three wounded at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin on Sunday has been identified as Wade Michael Page, law enforcement officials announced on Monday.

Mr. Page, 40, a United States Army veteran who served from 1992 until 1998, was shot and killed by police in the parking lot of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in suburban Milwaukee.

Officials at the Southern Poverty Law Center said they had been tracking Mr. Page for about a decade because of his ties to the white supremacist movement and described him as a “a frustrated neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band.”

They said he played guitar and sang vocals for a band started in 2005 called End Apathy.

“This guy was in the thick of the white supremacist music scene and, in fact, played with some of the best known racist bands in the country,” said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the center. “The music that comes from these bands is incredibly volent and it talks about murdering Jews, black people, gay people and a whole host of other enemies. It is music that could not be sold over the counter around the country.”

Mr. Page was living in a rented apartment in Cudahy, about five miles from the sprawling temple Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, a suburb of Milwaukee. He was shot by police after he fired several shots at a police officer tending to one of the victims, officials said.

Police Chief John Edwards of Oak Creek did not give a motive for the shooting, which is being treated as an act of “domestic terrorism.”

Mr. Edwards, speaking at a news conference, also identified the victims, five men and one woman, who ranged in age from 39 to 84. Three others were wounded during the shooting and are in critical condition at a local hospital.

The victims were identified as Sita Singh, 41, Ranjit Singh, 49, Satwant Singh Kaleka, 65, Prakash Singh, 39, Paramjit Kaur, 41 and Suveg Singh, 84.
