The gunman behind the deadly rampage at Los International Airport planned to kill multiple TSA officers to “instill fear in your traitorous minds” when he unloaded his .223-caliber assault rifle, the Associated Press reports.
Gunman Paul Ciancia, an unemployed motorcycle mechanic, is heavily sedated after he was shot several times. But he told the FBI in a handwritten note that he is a “pissed-off patriot” upset over what he considered the constitutional violations of invasive TSA searches, the AP reported .
Ciancia also said he was angry at former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Ciancia could be sentenced to death.
