Matthew Murray's Threatening Posts Back on the Web

Moderators at an online forum for former Pentecostals have reposted the rantings of Matthew Murray, the gunman who killed four young people in Arvada and Colorado Springs this weekend, on their website here.

Joe Istre, president of the Association of Former Pentecostals wrote of the decision, "In the interests of public service in trying to understand what happened, the Board of Directors has decided to move the threatening posts to an open forum for the public to see to try and make sense of all this chaos."

Istre added, "We are reposting these publicly because, since the shooter has died, and it is not likely to compromise any investigation for law enforcement."
