Jerad and Amanda Miller wedding photo, December 2013
On Sunday, June 8, 2014, two shooters viciously gunned down two police officers and a civilian before turning their guns on each other. Early reports indicated they draped the slain officers in Gadsen flags and yelled "this is the start of the revolution."

Wonkette identified the shooters as Jerad and Amanda Miller. Their Facebook pages reveal an affinity for gun rights, Cliven Bundy, Tea Party politics, chemtrail conspiracies and New World Order paranoia.

This was posted only one day before the rampage:

Here is Jerad Miller posing with Tea Party militia leader Richard Mack—who was recently front and center in the Bundy Ranch standoff, claiming they were planning to use women as human shields at the Bundy Ranch in the event a gun battle broke out with the federal government.

One month before their deadly spree, Jerad Miller was asking his friends on Facebook for help getting a gun, as you can see below the fold:

And she posted this bitstrip cartoon just days after they got married:

It's now confirmed that Jerad Miller was at the Bundy Ranch during the standoff, even interviewed News4 in Reno, NV:

He also made a few rambling videos that he posted to YouTube. He made the one below for his wife just before he reported to jail last summer. In the video, he sobs about how much he'll miss her and thanks her for always bringing a smile to his face, no matter "how crabby of a mood he's in because of the New World Order":

Another bizarre video starts with roughly a minute of his cats and then moves onto a rant about drones and big government:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
