David L. Madden, former Sea and suspected missing person in 2015, shot the county of Rice County and under-sheriff on Monday. He shot himself and killed his father at his father's house near Raymond, Kansas.

Monday's suspicion of central Kansas sheriff and sub-sheriff was suspected of being a former Seaman who kept an AK-47 machine gun under his bed once and stored two dozen pipe pipes and other explosive materials on his property, revealing federal court documents.

David L. Madden, from Alden, Kansas, was found dead in his father's house at 12:10 pm on Tuesday after a 6 1/2-hour residue with authorities. Madden's father, Thomas Madden, was found from Raymond, nearby Kansas, to death at home.

The onerous event that many rural Kansas communities put on the same day was sent by federal authorities in California to cause an old US Army to plot a terrorist attack in Southern California. And it came less than three months after prosecutors in Maryland caused a Coast Guard official to be a “domestic terrorist” who was caring for weapons and pulling up a striking list including Democrats. , two Supreme Court judges and television journalists.

The cases of violent acts of ex-armed forces soldiers continue to raise concerns among those who monitor extremists, and some say that the military is not doing enough to put them out.

“The Department of Defense is a very large organization with over one million people,” said Daryl Johnson, a former senior analyst with the Department of Homeland Security. “So, a very small percentage will think about society, and there will be some extremists in their ranks.

“But that is a few thousand people. And these are people who have access to classified information, special military training in warfare and martial arts, and some have combat experience. Even too big. ”

A spokesman for the Civil Service Marine Corps warned not to paint a wide pair.

“These events are obviously very newsworthy as they do not always happen,” said Capt Joseph Joseph Butterfield. “The Marine Corps returns quality citizens to the civilian world. That's one of the things we want to do. But I think we have to be careful about how too much is linked to a service as to why something happened or why a person took a terrible act. "

In the case of California, authorities said on Monday that they had a domestic terrorist plot aimed at “multiple goals”, including Huntington Beach, Long Beach port and Santa Monica Quay.

Officials said the suspicion, Mark Steven Domingo, 26, was trying to sue recent attacks against Muslims. Domingo also spoke about an assault similar to obesity in 2017 in Las Vegas and considered that it focuses on white nationals, Jews, churches and police, according to a document filed in federal court.

Domingo, who lives in Reseda, California, and a former Army infantryman in Afghanistan, said he was an improvised explosive device from an official under FBI, said the Department of Justice. The “bomb” was really inert. Domingo prosecutors were charged with trying to provide relevant support to terrorists.

In February, Lt Christopher Paul Hasson, 49, was ordered without a bond on drug and gun fees involving the federal prosecutors alleged to be a domestic terrorist plot. The prosecutors said that Hasson was a white national who inspired extreme ideas and wrote about biological attacks. Court documents said agents found 15 guns and more than 1,000 round ammunition in his apartment in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Last week, a federal judge in Maryland created a public conflict when he said Hasson was entitled to be released from detention before his trial after the public defendant argued that the continued government detention was illegal. The judge said that he still had a "serious concern" about the alleged acts of Hasson but that the charges did not require that point to be retained.

The violence began in Kansas shortly after 5 pm. Monday, when Rice County Underheriff Chad Chad was shot four times – including once in the neck – within 30 seconds from Madden to pull down a traffic stop just north of Sterling, Kansas, the city offers about 70 miles northwest of Wichita. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said Tuesday that Madden's wife and child were in the vehicle at the time.

Madden then fled and drove to his home in Alden, the KBI said, where he got guns and ammunition. Subsequently, the KBI said, he drove to his father's house, Thomas Madden, 65 years of age, in Raymond, Kansas, and it was fatal he did it. When County Rice Bryant Evans arrived at about 5:40 pm, David Madden turned him into the foot and then swapped guns with other officers, according to the KBI.

The remainder ended with multiple law enforcement agencies when the body authorities of David Madden received a 12:10 a.m. The KBI said that he suspected of dying because of self-attacks wound.

Murphy was sent to Wichita hospital and was in a critical but stable condition on Tuesday, said the KBI. Evans was treated for his injuries and was released.

Federal court documents show that Madden was indicted 23 April in the US District Court in Kansas on one count of an illegal possession of a machine gun.

The documents also say that Madden, 37, is a person interested in departing Megan Foglesong, Alden's wife reported to be missing in November 2015. A filed affidavit says that a special KBI agent was contacted by Foglesong cancellation inquiry. A special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives repeatedly reported that the KBI received information that Madden was suspected of explosives or explosive materials.

On February 22, 2017, the affidavit, under the direction of Madden authorities led a high speed chase that began in Ellinwood, Kansas, and went through counties Rice and Barton. Madden was arrested later that day after her standby with law enforcement officers at her residence in Alden, Kansas.

On February 25, 2017, a search of Madden's property consisted of two wooden crates in an outbuilding consisting of 24 metal pipe bombs, each covered with metal band wire and some wrapped in black electric tape, according to the affidavit. The following day investigates up to 12 smokeless powder containers and two live military ordnance projections.

Authorities conducted another search on March 9, 2017, and found an AK-47 machine gun under Madden's bed. They also found a torpedo railway, an explosive controlled object, and an excellent semiautomatic pistol .45.

KBI's agent interviewed Madden in Rice County Prison on 11 April 2017, according to the affidavit. In the 34-minute interview, Madden admitted that he had made and lit pipe bombs and said he was doing this since he was a child, ”says the document.

"Mr. Madden acknowledged that the machine gun was found in Fallujah, in Iraq when he was there fighting for the US Marine Corps," he says. Madden admitted that the machine gun was being brought back to the United States and that he knew it was a machine gun. ”

Madden's records released on Tuesday by the Marine Corps do not show that he was ever in use in Iraq. The records show that he served in the Marines from 19 June, 2000 to 15 April, 2004, who graduated with a Private First Degree, E-2 on October 9, 2003. He was a mounted armored vehicle crew, as he makes decorations. and received the National Defense Service Medal, to recognize all military members engaged in active duties during a “national emergency”.

At a Tuesday morning news conference, KBI's special agent, Stephen Rosebrough, said he had no knowledge of why Madden was not in prison on Monday. The records of the Kansas Department of Corrections list their current status as “absent” as at 11 February.

Rosebrough said that authorities do not know what he inspired Madden to do.

“We will never know what his true movement is,” he said.

Johnson, who now runs an analytics firm that focuses on domestic extremism, said that there is great concern for violent extremists in the army that the policies to keep them out are pretty strict.

“They have an entrance that says you will be disciplined if you have an active membership in a white supremacist group,” he said. “But if you're a member of a militia, you're fine; if you are a dominant citizen, you are fine. So you must be a member of the National Socialist Movement or attend a KKK rally to be disciplined.

“This loophole must be closed, as the majority of white or violent extremists are not active group members. If you are supporting or accepting or going online or taking part in a forum or whatever, there should be any concession. ”
