First they won't let him in the National Guard for desert storm, then he is fired after a year and a half as a cop, then he becomes a body builder, then he gets married, then he gets a divorce then he converts to islam......This guy is whack-a-do y'all.

From the article:

A former North Carolina police officer says he tried to join ISIL, the Islamic militant group responsible for the kidnapping and recent killing of a pair of American journalists in Syria, but was stopped while trying to enter the country.
Don Morgan, a 44-year-old Catholic-born North Carolina native, told NBC News he tried to enter Syria through Turkey but was turned away at the airport in Istanbul.
“My reason for the support of [ISIL] is because they’ve proven time and time again to put Islamic law as the priority and the establishment of an Islamic state as the goal,” Morgan said in an interview from Beirut before returning to the United States on Aug. 2, when he was arrested on a weapons charge.
At a court hearing in Brooklyn on Aug. 4 after an arrest at JFK, the FBI said it was aware of Morgan's support for ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also called ISIS), but the arrest was for his attempt as a convicted felon to sell a rifle online — and unrelated to terrorism.

But they promised they'll keep his name on file, and let him know if they ever have a vacancy.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

I wonder how many people out there with some instabilities would want to join ISIS just for a reason to kill people in brutal and sadistic ways. This guy sounds like a real winner, ISIS should have welcomed him with open arms so that he can endure the same wrath that they will face someday soon.
