“When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up. Let your reason get you back up.”~ Les Brown
I’m just speechless that another senseless act of violence and death happened yet again at Ft. Hood near Killeen, Texas.
Since the horrible events of 2009 where Nidal Hasan went on a killing rampage, it appears that another soldier carried out another deadly attack.
However the casualties are far less than what they were in 2009.
Nidal Hasan is in custody at the United States Disciplinary Barracks.
The soldier that caused the havoc in 2014 is dead by his own hand.
And so I watch all of these reports and they are constantly connecting 2014 shooting with Hasan’s rampage in 2009.
What they are NOT saying is that these two shootings are not the first time Ft. Hood has dealt with soldiers killing while on base. There has been others who have killed. But they are not talking about that.

PFC Dwight J. Loving (in custody)

PFC Dwight J. Loving was a soldier at Ft. Hood and he was involved in a series of crimes of robbing convenience stores. But what ties him to Ft. Hood and the base is the fact that Loving called for a cab and then he robbed the driver at gunpoint. Then shot him in the head, killing him.

Loving soon after called for another cab and he did the same thing, he robbed the driver and then shot him in the head and killed him in secluded areas of the military base.
Loving was apprehended the next day. Now he sits on United States military death row, waiting for his own execution. The same as Nidal Hasan. There are currently FIVE military members that are military death row.
Loving’s crimes happened in December of 1988.  Hasan was more than twenty years later and now this tragedy less than five years later.
I’m just so surprised that nobody is reporting on ALL tragic shootings for Ft. Hood.
