The victims of last week’s Aurora, Colorado, shooting at Century movie theater will never be forgotten and all of the families are experiencing immeasurable grief as we watch their misery from afar. But, this tragedy could’ve occurred anywhere and security measures have been tightened because copy cats may spring up. It already seems that one man was going to attempt something similar at his job.
Neil Edwin Prescott, 28, of Crofton, Maryland, has been admitted to Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, Maryland, after he allegedly referred to himself as the “Joker” and said he wanted to “blow everybody up.” So far, authorities believe that Prescott found out that he was going to lose his job with a subcontractor for Pitney Bowes and had a meltdown.
According to Washington D.C’s local NBC4, in the warrant presented for Prescott, a supervisor contacted him about “a work-related matter,” but later in the conversation he said,
“It’s kind of foolish of me to say this kind of things over government phone.”
Apparently, he went a bit further with his threats because the search warrant included things he said:
“I’m gonna load my guns and blow everybody up,” and that he wanted to see the supervisor’s “brain splatter all over the sidewalk,” and “You don’ t know who the real Joker is; I am the real Joker.”
Prince George’s County police feel that they prevented a tragic event possibly of the same magnitude as Colorado’s. Authorities found in his apartment:
1 Assault Rifle
1 Beretta 40 Cal hangun
2 KAHR 9mm handguns
2 Mauser USSR rifles Re
1 Night High Power rifle scope
40 Boxes of Ammo
Yeah! This fool is crazy! Unless he thought the rapture was coming, he has no other explanation for having so much artillery. Check out the report.
