Shots fired into Knox Bush/Cheney headquarters

Shots fired into Knox Bush/Cheney headquarters
An unknown suspect fired multiple shots into the Bearden office of the Bush/Cheney re-election campaign Tuesday morning.

The headquarters are located at 4618 Kingston Pike, between Nouveau Classics and Lenny's submarine sandwich shop in the same shopping plaza as Long's Drugstore.

According to Knoxville Police Department (KPD) officers on the scene Tuesday, it is believed that the two separate shots were fired from a car sometime between 6:30 am and 7:15 am.

One shot shattered the glass in the front door and the other cracked the glass in another of the front doors.

Bush-Cheney volunteer campaign coordinator Suzanne Dewar says she originally planned to be in the office early Tuesday morning.

"If I had gotten here a couple hours earlier, I'd have been inside," Dewar explains. "And we don't turn the lights on until we open, so they wouldn't have know someone was inside."

There were no witnesses to the shooting. A customer at a nearby dry cleaning store noticed shattered glass on the sidewalk in front of the headquarters and informed an employee in the cleaner's, who then called police.

Volunteers and staffers at the campaign office say they have no clues as to who might have committed the crime. However, they add that the shooting makes them even more enthusiastic about working for their candidates.

"If anything, they've energized us," Dewar says. "Thank you. Not thank you for shooting at us, but, nothing's gonna slow us down."

Dewar says she can't imagine why someone would fire shots into an office where people could have been injured or killed.

"I don't even know what to say to the person that did this," Dewar says. "...Get a life. This is ridiculous."

Bush/Cheney volunteer Jo Catlett says the incident hasn't fazed her.

"I just don't feel like I have to be nervous," says Catlett. "I mean, I just believe in God and that He'll take care of me, so I don't worry about that."

In an unexpected twist, a bank directly across the street from the headquarters was robbed as KPD officers were busy investigating at the scene of the shooting.

man i get so mad at liberals sometimes, this is why no one can take us seriously. 99% of the time theres no violence, but the few times there is it takes a big stab at our validity.

where in the article (or the other news pieces on this story) that states that the investigators believe it was a liberal?

subquestion: how many liberals do you know who own guns?

why does the shooter have to be simply anti/pro bush?

furthermore, why does anti-bush = liberal?

I'll drink to that!

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

Ahhh, caucasians. Not bad, but too much milk in my tummy.

Damn, I gotta go make another drink.

Just crunched my last piece of bourbon flavored ice.

soy milk is key!  i'm lactose intolerant!
