His landlord’s mother told Greendale Patch that Page had recently broken up with his girlfriend.

The gunman who murdered six people at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin was identified as Wade Michael Page.
It is still unclear what his motivation was for the shooting at the temple.
Yahoo-GMA reported:

The gunman who opened fire in a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis., and killed six people has been identified as Army veteran Wade Michael Page.

Page, 40, opened fire outside the temple before entering around 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning and killed six people. He served in the Army from April 1992 through October 1998.

Page was shot and killed in an exchange of gunfire with a police officer who sustained “eight or nine” gunshot wounds, authorities confirmed. Officials are treating it as a case of domestic terrorism.

Though police have not given any details on the motive of the shooter, but Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms Special Agent Thomas Ahern said Page had tattoos that suggested he had ties to white supremacists.

“It is being investigated. And what his tattoos signified is being investigated. They are all pieces of a possible puzzle to learn what was his motive in carrying out such a horrific act,” Ahern said.

While in the Army Wade served as a sergeant, and later as a specialist based in Ft. Bliss in Texas and at Ft. Bragg in North Carolina. Wade’s job was as a Hawk missile system repairman, and he then became a psychological operations specialist, defense official confirmed to ABC news.

On Sunday the FBI and a bomb squad arrived at a home in Cudahy, Wis., near Oak Creek, and ABC News Milwaukee affiliate WISN reported the action appeared to be related to the temple shootings earlier in the day.

There were some reports that the shooter had a 9/11 tattoo on his arm, leading many to speculate he was a white supremacist. Police later said they were treating the incident as “domestic terrorism.”

In a previous intervew Page told Southern Poverty Law Center he had been a part of the white power music scene since 2000, when he left his native Colorado on a motorcycle. He attended white power concerts in Georgia, North Carolina, West Virginia and Colorado. At various times, he said, he also played in the hate rock bands Youngland (2001-2003), Celtic Warrior, Radikahl, Max Resist, Intimidation One, Aggressive Force and Blue Eyed Devils. End Apathy, he said, included “Brent” on bass and “Ozzie” on drums; the men were former members of Definite Hate and another band, 13 Knots.

More… BG added this from IBT: Page was dishonorably discharged in 1998 for “patterns of misconduct,” a Pentagon official told CNN.

Update:  Law enforcement officials had been tracking Page for a decade.  But, there was not enough evidence to pursue criminal charges.

  1. While in the Army Wade served as a sergeant, and later as a specialist based in Ft. Bliss in Texas and at Ft. Bragg in North Carolina. Wade’s job was as a Hawk missile system repairman, and he then became a psychological operations specialist, defense official confirmed to ABC news.

    1. This story leaves out the salient fact present in other articles that Wade was less than honorably discharged.

    2. I find the fact that he served as a Segeant before serving as a Specialist (lower rank) telling – and the fairly frequent job changes. That seems to be a lot of different MOS for a mere 6 years of service.

  2. ” He was last stationed in Fort Bragg, N.C., serving in the psychological operations unit.”

    This fits the profile of scientology. L Ron Hubbard had a less than honorable military service record and made his post military career in ” self help ” mental therapies of wounded veterans. The massacre took place a couple blocks away from a scinetology church…same as the Aurora cinema 16 was also a couple blocks away from a scinetology church. These massacres are cult related , tied together, and should not be dismissed as ” senseless ” or ” isolated incidcents” . Both killers specialized in the study of the brain and yet the media wants them bushed off as ” insane” when they should be investigating deeper connections to organized satanism. ..> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Ron_Hubbard

  3. What is the likely hood of this guy committing suicide with death by cop. He took a lot of time to allow the cop to show up and be confronted. How is this different from the Fort Polk or Aurora killing except less. Mental deficiet is consistant. What makes this a hate crime. More so than the kids playing the knock down game

  4. So, he hasn’t been in the armed forces for 14 years, but his being a veteran is the salient point? Way to stick to the script, LSM.

  5. The media is desperate to tie him to some group on the right rather than treat him as what he is, a nut job with no real political agenda. Attacking Sikhs? What have Sikhs ever done to him or us?

  6. So we have an army psychiatrist, a candidate for a doctorate in neurology and now a former psy ops soldier, all of whom go off the rails.

    Looks to me like the problem isn’t guns.

  7. “There were some reports that the shooter had a 9/11 tattoo on his arm, leading many to speculate he was a white supremacist.”

    ——-

    Do ONLY white supremacists care what happened on 911?

    This sounds like the ‘white/male oppressor’ stereotype to me.

  8. LSM 101:

    1. A white guy committing a heinous act-Domestic Terrorism.
    2. A non-white guy committing a heinous act-random act of violence.
    3. If the white guy has served in the U.S. military-Military Veteran
    *ignore if it’s been years since service or dishonorably discharged
    4. ANY heinous acts committed by a white guy-No Guns.

    This administration, prior administrations going back 50+ years and Congress are at war with the american people & our Constitution. 2nd Amendment is the only thing holding back the tide of pure evil.

  9. Has the “speculation” by some about the tattoo unnecessarily involved people who were deeply affected by what happened on 911?

    Could the number have been ’311′?

    -

    Hate Symbols / ’311′ – Andi-Defamation League
    http://www.adl.org/hate_symbols/numbers_311.asp

    “The eleventh letter of the alphabet is the letter “K”; thus 3 times 11 equals “KKK,” or Ku Klux Klan. 311 is sometimes used as a greeting to demonstrate membership in the KKK or simply sympathy with the Klan and its ideology. There is also a popular rock band with the name “311″ which is not at all hate-oriented.”

  10. Why are they treating this as domestic terrorism if they don’t know the motive? But when Maj Hasam went a killing spree, they “didn’t want to rush in judgement”?

  11. Another lone shooter with 3 first names…..hmmmmm

  12. This is creepy! Look at the album cover from the ‘MySpace’ page::

  13. 1. A white guy committing a heinous act-Domestic Terrorism.

    I don’t recall the Aurora incident being widely called domestic terrorism by the media. And it was the FBI, not the media, who said the Wisconsin shooting may be an act of domestic terrorism.

    Your persecution complex here is ridiculous. This isn’t about you. Real people died here.

  14. After looking at his MySpace page, I’ve concluded that Wade is definitely a Nazi/Skinhead. (The Nazi flag kinda gives it away.)

  15. Gee, and he looks like such a thoughtful, sane individual…..

    The “irony” of rigging yourself up like a nutcase has long since lost its punch. If you shave your head and cover yourself in ink the world will take you for a madman.

    And it’s rarely a mistake, either.

  16. How does leaving the military in 1998 justify referring to him as a “military veteran” as if he just left the service? Is this to prop up Napolitano and her DHS calling ex-military people potential terrorists? If categorizing this guy as a “military veteran” that category would include a whole bunch of folks. If he were 90 years old and fought in WWII would they still categorize him as a “military veteran” so they can support their contention that vets are “dangerous”? What BS….

  17. People were also killed through fast and furious, hundreds, should those involved be labeled “domestic terrorist” Should Holder and Obama be so judged? I say more so.

    They will continue to use these events to disarm us, but only if we let them.
