I was a security specialist with the US Holocaust Memorial Museum for 10 years with the Department of Protective Services Branch. Today is a sad day for the Holocaust Museum and the National Capitol Region.

Unfortunately, indicators for Lone Offenders often go by unchecked. However, some Lone Offenders may exhibit "key indicators" such as, expressing a desire to attack a particular target or collect information about the target. A Lone Offender may also express interest in obtaining or using weapons, explosives, and bomb making manuals to perpetrate violence.

Generally, Lone Offenders make it hard for law enforcement and homeland security officials to detect their plans and targets. In this regard, it is with great sadness that the Holocaust family was targeted.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family of the Security Officer and the Holocaust community.
