Tempe City Council’s Arbitrary Ruling Almost Ends In Mass Shooting At Super Bowl
Kurt Havelock, 35, planned to shoot people at the Super Bowl. He loaded up his car with an AR-15 rifle and 200 rounds of ammunition, then drove to a parking lot near the stadium. When he got there, however, he was suddenly hit with remorse, realized that what he was doing was wrong and decided that he couldn’t go through with it, so he turned around and went home. Unfortunately for Mr. Havelock, he’d already mailed an eight-page manifesto to the newspapers so it wasn’t long before the authorities descended and arrested and charged him for sending threatening communications (which was completely appropriate for the cops to do).
And what set the guy off?
The city of Tempe, Arizona refused to recommend his application for a liquor license for the bar he was trying to start up because six of the seven council members didn’t like the name “Drunkenstein’s“.
