Kooks ...

Yesterday in nearby Santa Clara, a recently-fired high-tech employee, Jing Hua Wu, assassinated the CEO of SiPort, the company VP and the HR chief.  I went to bed thinking this was sad and ridiculous and hoped the perp would be found soon. 

It took the cops nearly 24 hours to do so, but he's been caught. He is a Chinese national and I am taking bets as to how long it will be until China accuses the United States of violating a Chinese citizen's rights.

At least Santa Clara county will seek the death penalty, but I predict an insanity defense. I also predict a public defender will be utilized, even though the shooter reportedly earned in the neighborhood of $110K over the past 6 months and was given a severance package even though he'd been fired for cause.

Strength to the families of Sid Agrawal, Brian Pugh and Marilyn Lewis.
