    This is Trump's fault...prayers go out to all these families. This nut case drove 10 hrs to shoot up a predominantly Hispanic area in protest to race-mixing? Pure terrorism

    Agreed.

    Someone tried to smuggle a gun into Lollapalooza yesterday but was caught. I heard that Chicago PD are occupying/renting hotel rooms at the major hotels surround Grant park for these festivals only after what happened at Las Vegas (not seeing it advertised though):

    As long as it's white men doing it, nothing will change. Deep down, all of them are feeling threatened and defeated by the browning of America. The wm in power empathize with these murderers.

    I couldn’t figure that out either. But I assumed that the kids were dropped off at the mall or were Just in a different store than the parents.

    Honestly, my thought was that the kids (depending on age but the guy said he was picking them up) probably panicked and scattered. Before we do fire drills, intruder drills and lockdown drills in my school, I have to teach my kids how to react to the sounds of the alerts. For my pre-k students, it’s always shocking, even at the end of the year; there’s always kids that just freeze in fear or attempt to dart away.

    Yet if you look at history, race mixing wasn’t rampant until White People wanted to take over everything. The lack of logic with these terrorists is the scariest part of it all.

    I also attribute the sensationalism of these news stories to copycat shooters. Ever since Columbine these young white losers have been wanting their 15 minutes of fame. You know idiots don't have an original thought.

    White supremacist violence will continue to escalate as the 2020 election approaches (even more so if he wins again) and nothing will be done about it. I definitely miss the relative sense of safety I felt living in hella Black and/or nonwhite cities, but I guess this shooting shows that doesn’t matter anymore, they’ll drive to us to take a large number of us out.

    If we’re talking about not giving these shooters the attention they crave I’d remove it. Can’t speak for anyone else but I’m not going to read it.

    I'm not trying to sound alarmist but I truly believe they want a race war. They've been itching for Civil War 2.0 since the last one. Look at their rush to stockpile weapons when 44 won as if they already weren't outfitted in arsenals. And now they have political leaders stoking it and legitimizing their fears.

    Trump has emboldened the racist hate filled populous. Continuously Trump is unchecked or censored. Therefore those who share similar views or even worse than his see these heinous acts as justifiable.

    Some may desire a race war yet I believe majority want “ethnic cleansing”. These folks modus operandi is to terrorize in an unannounced way those who pose no real threat to them yet resemble those whom they despise.

    The government MUST call these incidences domestic terrorism and vigilantly DO SOMETHING before it gets even worse!

    i truly feel that these folks have some kind of schedule. i don't think any of this is random. they know they wont be killed. but in doing these 'missions', they take out part of 'the problem'. suicide bombers are never random. they are given their orders by someone.

    I am so sick of this mess!:( What can be done?
    I feel we have no leaders to speak out anymore. Everybody is only running for office to fatten their pockets.

    I wake up to hear about yet another shooting in Dayton where 9 people were killed and 26 injured. We cant go to the movies, schools, stores, bars without worrying about some crazed, evil person shooting people. Its sick. This is crazy. This is America.

    Between the shootings in the streets of my neighborhood and all these mass shootings I bailed out on an event that I really wanted to attend the other night all dressed up and ready to go at the last minute bc I didn’t feel safe with my options of getting home at such a late hour by myself. That is not like my character and I feel like President Obama encouraged us to continue to live our lives and not be afraid. This man does nothing but sow contention and discord. He continued his golf game when he was notified about El Paso and sent out a tweet late at night. I’m seeing myself becoming a hermit unless I have to travel for work and even then pretty much staying in the hotels. :nono:

    My boyfriend wants to go to a Rebelution concert this weekend, and this is one of many reasons I don’t want to go.

    It’s becoming more apparent that certain places are being targeted....wholesome, family-oriented, minority-dominant, or some other eclectic mixing of people who came together to enjoy something fun....the things that White supremacists hate. They hate to see a town like Gilroy, CA where whites, Blacks, and Hispanics came together to enjoy a weekend of food and music, so they decide to ruin so many lives and families because it doesn’t match their ideals.

    Same with El Paso....bunch of Black, Brown, and White families, who were trying to take advantage of the tax-free weekend, and prep their kiddies for school, and now another number of families have had their lives ruined, and some won’t get to see their children finish school.

    My boyfriend went to a concert in VA Beach a few weeks ago. Since the police knew the crowd was mostly the stoner crowd, the security checks were light. Doesn’t sit well with me at all....yeah the CROWD may be chill, but we have a lot of Trump supporters in this open-carry state. Maybe I’m being dramatic...

    And this country doesn’t care at all. I don’t believe that guns are the problem, but they have done NOTHING to make the vetting process harder for those who are trying to acquire weapons. Why does an average, non-military affiliates US citizen need a military-grade assault rifle?
