Oscar Ortega shoots at White House: A crazy man can be recognised not by his words, but by his actions

The man accused of shooting at the White House, Oscar Ortega, calls himself a modern-day Jesus. Was his intention to try to kill the President or to get national attention?

For sure, the charges against him are serious. Psychiatrists will qualify him as “mentally instable.” It is a crazy and bizarre story, a typical “angry white man” action. It is unusual that an Oscar Ortega, certainly an American of Latino origin, would do such a thing.

Well, a crazy person is a crazy person no matter what he looks like. Shooting at the White House and calling himself Jesus are enough evidence that he is crazy. As the Acholi of Sudan say, “A crazy man can be recognised not by his words, but by his actions.”
