LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Photos of Wade Michael Page of the group End Apathy have been released following the temple shooting 2012 this weekend. Wade Michael Page was reportedly lead singer of End Apathy which began as a rock group in 2005. Police have reportedly identified Page as the alleged gunman behind this weekend’s tragic temple shooting.
On its MySpace page, End Apathy says that their “music is a sad commentary on our sick society and the problems that prevent true progress.” The group claims that they “began in 2005 with roots in old school … punk and metal influences.” The group last listed their location as Nashville, North Carolina. Their last login to MySpace was in February 2012.
But investigators tell news that the Wade Michael Page moved to a residence near the temple only two weeks before this weekend’s shooting rampage. On MySpace, Wade Michael Page’s alleged music includes songs like “self destruct”, “insufficient”, and “submission”.
Wade Michael Page’s alleged music was authored after he was discharged from the army. Page was given a less-than-honorable discharge after serving six years in the army. During his service, he specialized in psychological operations units. He was stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas and thereafter at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
This weekend’s Sikh Temple shooting ended with six persons dead, four persons injured. Police contend that the gunman’s death toll could have been far worse if a responding officer had not promptly killed the shooter. For more about the tragedy, click HERE.
