Las Vegas Shooters Had A Dark Past

There's a clearer picture forming about the couple who went on a shooting spree Sunday that ended with five deaths including two Metro officers. The shooters were identified as Jerad and Amanda Miller, a married couple from Indiana. They came to Nevada a few months ago and joined up with militiamen at the Cliven Bundy ranch. But, eventually the militia asked the couple to leave because Jerad Miller has spent time in and out of jail on felony and misdemeanor charges dating back to the year 2000.

Reports from neighbors who knew the couple say the Millers were known to make constant rants about their hatred of police and the government. Jerad Miller has posted numerous YouTube videos spouting his views. And even though there has been a lot of mention of white supremacists groups, there has been no link between the shooters and any such group.
