Things Alleged

November 1, 2013, CBS News

Police: Suspect LAX gunman sent “suicide text” to family

Paul Anthony Ciancia texted a suicide wish.

Or a suicide determination.

Or a suicide fear.

(Specifics have not yet been reported.)

So he shot a man he did not know.

Paul Anthony Ciancia did not get his wish.

The police don’t grant wishes.

Or fulfill our fears.

Just because we want them to.

They arrested Paul Anthony Ciancia.

They chased him in the airport.

They fired shots.

(Specifics have not yet been reported.)

Paul Anthony Ciancia is not dead.

But not for lack of trying.
