The killer was free on probation instead of in Jail
Jack Hammer, Crime Reporter – This pair of Mass Shooters do not fit the pathology of the FBI Mass (or Active) Shooter profile. The shooting may have stemmed from an argument that occurred inside the bar hours earlier, police said. A bartender, Jose Valdez, said the problem started when he refused to serve a man who'd caused problems months earlier. The man threw a glass at him and was thrown out of the club, Valdez said. A few hours later that man and a second man came through the back door armed with pistols and began shooting, he said. Sadly this is the new normal in rough bars across the country – arguments escalating into late night gun fights. If a person keeps his/her wits, they know better than to be caught in these dangerous bar/clubs. This event is also another example of the shambolic American Legal system – pokey, porous, and pathetic.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Both suspects in the October 6 Tequila KC Bar shooting that killed four people and injured five others were scheduled to be in court today. The two were both awaiting court dates scheduled for Oct. 10 for other cases when the shooting happened. Javier Alatorre, who is in custody, was indicted for possession of a controlled substance. He also has other court cases involving stolen cars and a robbery.
Police are still looking for Hugo Villanueva-Morales, the second suspect. He has served time before, and he pleaded guilty to trafficking contraband while in custody at Leavenworth Prison. The Leavenworth County Prosecutor asked that Villanueva-Morales serve nine years, but a judge gave him two years probation. He was still on probation when the Tequila KC bar shooting happened. On Thursday, a Leavenworth judge issued an additional warrant for his arrest because he didn't show up for court at a hearing to revoke his probation. "We asked for a prison sentence… Instead, he’s still doing crime." Todd Thompson, Leavenworth County Attorney said.
