Ex-friend says temple shooter Wade Michael Page was a 'loner'

In the wake of the weekend's Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Chris Robillard, a former friend of Wade Michael Page, the suspected shooter.

Having served with Page in the army from 1995 through 1998, Robillard described the late 40-year-old by saying he was "always the loner type of person...even in a group of people, he [Page] would be off alone."

Although Page spoke openly to Robillard about an impending "racial holy war," Monday's guest didn't invest any concern into the remarks until early 2000:

"I've noticed then that he had gone through a dramatic change," said Robillard. "His talk about the racist war was even - you know, it was more like he really did believe it. And after he left, that was the last time I talked to him."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Morgan delves more into the unfolding details of this tragic event.

While l'acte gratuit based on deep seated, self-induced psycho-patholgy, the public gratification is induced by, you know....
