Well, he's a suspect.
And the worst part about it all is: he's Muslim. And the Chechnyans(sp) in Moscow? Muslim.
Some important Muslim needs to stand up REALLY quickly and denounce these fools.

Why? There's no indication that any of their actions were religiously-motivated. (The Chechens are demanding the Russian army out of their country.) If anything, that'll only validate the connection between Islam and terrorist violence to those already prejudiced that way. I mean, the Vatican didn't stand up to denounce Oklahoma City bombers Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols just because they had Christian backgrounds.

No, the more important connection here, IMHO, is that these killers had military backgrounds, military training, and worse--easy access to weapons to carry out their diabolical deeds. Why the average American citizen feels the need, much less the right, to own and use assault rifles, escapes the rational mind.

The Smoking Gun was awfully quick with the rich tapestry of this fellow's history in the criminal justice system: http://www.thesmokinggun.com/doc_o_day/doc_o_day.shtml. Sure he was one bad@$$-mofo, had all the right tools and know-how, but it's kinda strange for him to make that big leap to serial killer. Geez, he had kids of his own--and custody of them! The human psyche never ceases to amaze.
