PA Police shooter portrayed as right-wing nut job, he was anything but. UPDATES


They are spinning the shooting of two State police officers in Northeastern Pennsylvania as perpetrated by a right-wing survivalist. This from a local newspaper which cannot resist bringing up twice in the same story that he was involved in the school’s rifle team. It turns out he was anything but a right-wing nut case. Fox news is still spinning it as a “sharp shooting survivalist”, whatever that intends to mean. Picture just added by the Pocono Record newspaer. Updates as they come available. Why isn’t the media covering this?

Well, they are now covering the story since they can try and work it out to fit their agenda. Be sure and check out his MySpace page. These are leftist organizations that he supported. Just saying.

ABC News  Accused Cop Shooter Eric Frein Played Soldiers in War Films

The suspect in the shooting of two Pennsylvania state troopers has spent years reenacting military history and has shaved the sides of his head into a bizarre Mohawk as “part of the mental preparation” for his alleged attack, police said today.

Eric Matthew Frein, 31, is charged with killing one trooper and wounding a second last Friday and there is a massive manhunt underway for him. He is considered dangerous, possibly armed with a rifle and an AK-47. Schools in the district were closed today because of the search.

Lt. Col. George Bivens said today that Frein “belongs to a military simulation unit” that focused on Eastern European armies. More ABC News

Eric Frein is on the far right. He was a sophomore on the rifle team when this photo was taken in 2000.

Being a “survivalist”, if in fact he was one, doesn’t by itself qualify him as “right-wing”. Being on a school’s rifle team doesn’t turn one into an assassin.

Here is the header from Weasel Zippers:

PA Trooper Shooter Suspect Has MySpace Reference To Che Guevara, 13th Guards (Soviet Red Army Rifle Division)

Some stories have identified him as a “survivalist”, which some immediately are translating to “right wing nut”.

As with most things, best not to jump to conclusions till all the evidence is in.

In this case, it is clear from Frein’s MySpace account that he was an active participant in an Airsoft group, practicing shooting. There are a lot of connections to other Airsoft players.

There is also a connection to Che Guevara and 13th Guards. 13th Guards was a Soviet Red Army rifle division, also referenced on Call of Duty.

State police are searching for Eric Matthew Frein, who they say is armed with a high-powered rifle, extremely dangerous and the man they suspect in the fatal ambush shooting Friday at a Pike County state police barracks

Now how the local media portrays him:

Frein, 31, lives with his parents in Canadensis, about 20 miles from the Blooming Grove barracks.

Police say Frein, who was on the rifle team at Pocono Mountain High School and whose father describes him as an excellent marksman who “doesn’t miss,” is an extreme survivalist who has expressed a desire to kill law enforcement and commit mass murder.

Hated police

Police interviewed his father, Michael Frein, who told them that an AK-47 and a .308 rifle with a scope were missing from the home.

Michael Frein told police he is a retired major with 28 years in the Army, and that he had trained his son in shooting skills.

Michael Frein is quoted in a 1999 Pocono Record article advocating to keep the rifle team intact when the school considered abandoning the program.

At a press conference Tuesday, Noonan said Frein had for years expressed his hatred of police both in person and online.

    Wow, the sheer denial on this is insane. This guy is the very deffinition of “right wing nutjob”.

    1. Is he in love with guns…. check
    2. Does he hate the government….. check
    3. Does he wish harm on officials of the government ala Cliven Bundy….. Huge freaking check
    4. Does he like to prepare for the end of the world…. check
    5. Does he like to pretend that he is in the military (but not actually join)… check again

    If he only had one or two things on this list, sure you could say there is no real evidence that he is a right wing nutjob. Plenty of people like to camp or learn how to live without electricity, plenty of people like guns or mistrust the government. Some people even fantasize about harming those in positions of authority over them. But to my knowledge only one group can check all of those boxes and that’s… the ultra right wing NUTJOBS!!!

      Right you are. These were my old stomping grounds and still have friends and relatives very close to the situation. I learned how to handle a gun while on the Rifle team. Nerves are very frayed up there. It has been five days. With luck he may have blown his head off, but doubt it. Worries are he will turn up at a school. All are closed for now.

    “PA Police shooter portrayed as right-wing nut job, he was anything but” At least they did not say he was with ISIS/ISIL.

    “Being a “survivalist”, if in fact he was one, doesn’t by itself qualify him as “right-wing”. Being on a school’s rifle team doesn’t turn one into an assassin.”

    “… who has expressed a desire to kill law enforcement and commit mass murder.”

    Makes him a dangerous domestic terrorist. Bunkerville wants to split-hairs as to this domestic terrorist is Right Wing or not – is besides the point, he is dangerous.

    (Yes the accused is innocent until proven guilty; but as Bunkerville brought this up, .

        The intention of the media is to imply that dangerous gun toting Neanderthals are conservatives. Which, given so many recent extreme RW killings, is hard to contest.

    So then portraying this killer as right wing wing without evidence is like calling Zero a patriotic American, without evidence. Print all the news that fits.

      True indeed. I bet this story will drop off completely now that the back story doesn’t fit their agenda. Then again, if he shoots again, look to see the school rifle team get blasted. P.S. When growing up, I was on this very team. I learned a healthy respect for guns.
