Crazy People Are Dangerous

Travis Reinking is crazy. Among other things, he believed that Taylor Swift was stalking him. Last year, he was arrested at the White House after crossing a barricade, saying he wanted to talk to the President. The FBI and police in his Illinois hometown were aware of Reinking’s craziness, but they failed to lock him up in the nuthouse:

The suspect in the killings of four people at a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee had an encounter with law enforcement days before the rampage, when he stole a BMW, led cops on a chase, but ultimately got away, authorities revealed Monday.
The Nashville Metro Police Department said Travis Reinking, 29, stole a BMW from a dealership in Brentwood on Tuesday and let authorities on chase before they lost him in heavy rush hour traffic.
Metro Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron told reporters cops chased the vehicle, but then opted to track the car via a GPS device.
The vehicle was recovered the same day at Reinking’s apartment complex in neighboring Antioch. Aaron said that authorities did not know Reinking’s identity at the time since he did not provide identification at the dealership before taking the vehicle.
“They had no idea who the man was,” he said. . . .
Reinking, 29, who was naked during the shooting except for a green jacket and assault rifle, may have “mental issues,” authorities said.

Reinking was captured this afternoon and will likely spend the rest of his life in prison. Too bad he wasn’t put in a lunatic asylum before he killed four people, but our society is so afraid to discriminate against the mentally ill that kooks are allowed to run loose.
