Davidson County, Tennessee is the home to Nashville, the country music capital of the world. For the moment, however, it is also home to two men accused of mass shootings. Travis Reinking, the crazed "Waffle House" killer and Emanuel Samson, the Antioch Church shooter.

Both are currently being held in isolation, but are mere feet from each other for now. Previously they were being evaluated to see if they were psychologically fit to stand trial. Both have been deemed fit but are being closely monitored while in protective custody.

Emanuel Samson conducted the mass shooting at the Burnett Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch last September. He killed Melanie Crow and injured several others.

There is Emanuel Samson, the suspect in the mass shooting at the Burnett Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch in September of last year. He's charged with killing Melanie Crow and injuring several others.

Then there is Travis Reinking. Seven months after the Burnett Chapel shootings, police say Reinking targeted an Antioch Waffle House. In the case of the Antioch shooting, Sudanese immigrant Emanuel Kidega Samson <a href="https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/crime/2018/03/28/antioch-church-shooting-suspect-emanuel-samson-pleads-not-guilty-through-his-attorney/439374002/">authorities were reticent to bring up any specific motive</a> despite a <a href="

https://fox17.com/news/local/antioch-church-suspect-emanuel-samson-had-a-note-referencing-dylann-roof-case">note found that explicitly lists Samson's motive</a>: revenge for the Charleston church shooting.

Travis Reinking, the Waffle House shooter is accused of killing four people: Taurean Sanderlin, Joe Perez, DeEbony Groves and Akilah DaSaliva.

"When he first came in and all this was happening the question was 'was he competent to stand trial' and the answer was no," said Sheriff Daron Hall.

Recently, however, Reinking was evaluated at Middle Tennessee Mental Health for schizophrenia and is being seen as fit to stand trial.

Reinking had previously been arrested in Washington D.C. at the White House by the Secret Service while in a restricted area of the White House grounds. Apparently, Reinking, who considered himself a "Sovereign Citizen" believed he had the right to demand he speak to President Trump.

Both men are in "restrictive housing" at the moment with 22 hour lockdown in their cells with 2 hours a day outside the cell. Sheriff Hall says it is possible the two could converse from between their cells:

"They could have conversation, but they should not have contact. There could be conversation because they are doors in a rec area where they could communicate through metal doors."

He did not say whether the two are known to have interacted but says the jail staff monitor any such communication and, of course, anything they say could be used against them during prosecution.

Both men will remain in holding until their pending trials which should be sometime late next year. The charges against Reinking will be presented to the grand jury soon, no word yet on the Samson case, but

Both men will, of course, remain locked up pending trials which could come late next year.

The charges against Travis Reinking will soon be presented to the grand jury. No word yet on the status of the case against Samson. Samson pled guilty to all 43 charges against him <a href="https://www.upi.com/Tennessee-church-shooter-Emanuel-Samson-pleads-not-guilty/3901522286108/">including civil rights intimidation</a>, murder and 24 counts of aggravated assault. The US Department of Justice has also opened a civil rights investigation to determine if the shooting was racially or religiously motivated.

As recently as August of this year, Reinking, who had posted about the Illuminati and other conspiracy topics, was judged not fit to stand trial. Samson had also made some bizarre social media posts in addition to espousing black power, anti-white and anti-police views.
