Now we learn that Rhode Island police warned the U.S. Navy last month that Alexis had reported "hearing voices." [Reuters] Alexis told police he believed people were following him and "sending vibrations into his body." Reuters also reports that the Navy gave Alexis an honorable discharge despite "a series of eight to 10 misconduct charges, ranging from traffic offenses to disorderly conduct."
He had been treated since August by Veterans Affairs for his mental problems, but the Navy had not declared him mentally unfit.
Why is it that obviously disturbed individuals like Alexis can waltz right through Navy security, but elderly handicapped individuals with walkers must endure strip searches before flying to Omaha?
Alexis opened fire at the Naval Sea Systems Command on Monday, killing 12 people before police shot him dead.
