    I just watched the Dayton's mayor's press conference. The police neutralized the shooter within one minute. All those dead and injured in such a short time frame. Thank goodness for the quick response or this could have been way worse.

    I am not into the impotent hope and prayers stuff. But that doesn't mean I don't have the most empathy for these affected by both these tragic events.

    You know what struck me as what makes this country great. They showed the line of blood donors in El Paso this morning.
    There were people of every ethnic background in that line.

    As much as I agree with that, you and I both know it won't play out that way.

    Saw the blood donor line myself, refreshing to see the amount of people, and diversity of them, willing to help.

    Truly senseless. What a loss of innocent lives.
    I'm getting to the point that I try to avoid the daily news(on tv and internet) as much as possible.

    Just disgusting!!

    Kudos to all those who stepped in/up.

    Prayers for all affected by this ignorant senseless cowardly act.

    These acts have been out of control for far too long. Seems like no one has an answer on how to stop them. It makes you never want ro.leave the house.

    It was refreshing to see the blood donor line. That part restores my faith in humanity.

    Prayers go out to the families of the victims for sure and so close to our home here. That's an area I used to frequent and outside of a club (that has changed hands a few times now/ and names) I have performed in. Makes me glad I don't do small venues anymore but I do realize chaos can break out anywhere.
    I feel for the families that lost loved ones . Horrible.

    Thoughts and prayers are an insult.

    I feel sorry for the loss of all the innocent lives that have been ended by these psychopaths since Columbine, especially those very young kids in Sandy hook elementary. These guys are NUTS! Mental NUT JOBS!

    Usually outcasts.

    It happens all over the world. Nuts are getting JOY out of killing innocent people they don't usually know, because they feel it must be done to put themselves on a pedestal above those who do nothing about what they believe should be done.

    Hitler, Stalin and so many, many other Country Dictators have done a thousand or million times worse than these single nut-jobs. I keep hearing "white nationalists" since the Texas mass murderer posted a web post about how he felt about Latinos.

    The media is spreading BS that ALL white people feel the way he does. The media doesn't say the murderer is NUTS, NO, they spread the BS that he's doing what all white people want to do and the lie that Trump loves what white nationalists stand for and promote. Again the media pumps this into peoples brains daily.

    The media is Fing up this country more than these psychopaths with their continued yelling of RACISM where there isn't.
    Racism exists on all sides, I KNOW THAT! It always will. :s:'(

    I think Racism in our politics since Obama's 8 years of pedaling it where it didn't exist put fuel on burning ember. He gave Al Sharpton 80 visits to the white house. I'll bet ol' Al won't get one request to show up to our present President's white house. There's no racism welcomed there now!

    What I'm getting at is the Media that hates Trump is ALREADY saying the Texas psychopathic mass killer is doing what Trump has been advocating. I didn't want to respond because the news should be asking...how did this nut-case get to the point of wanting to KILL PEOPLE? The police spokesperson said he's answering every question they ask with outspoken cooperation and supposed honesty with out any hesitation, which is good to know. They might find out what was the tipping point in his twisted mind.

    The Vegas killings. The Vegas police were investigating that killers info for a few hours... WHEN the frikn JUSTICE DEPT and FBI quickly came in, took the guys hard-drive out of his PC and told the Vegas Police to step aside, permanently.

    Our Gov. covered it up because "white people" were killed. "Country music loving white people for the most part". Republican voters probably too. Can't have bad publicity pointing to a Democratic Party supporter who has a history of visiting Trump hating web sites now can they!?

    Have you seen the home this Texas shooter was living in? He was probably a spoiled brat who was bored. I think he had practiced shooting people on many video games and then took it to the real world.

    I went back and forth between news channels and just shook my head in disgust from what I heard on CNN, MSNBC. The accusations spewing from their commentators was infuriating and just racist BS.

    I'll find out more as the week progresses. I think I'll stay away from those insinuating news channels to keep my blood pressure down. I'm really too old for this kind of tragedy coverage.

    I knew I shouldn't have commented but I have.

    WTH is wrong with these young kids?!




    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I would submit that these things did happen. They just weren't the subject of a 24/7 news cycle all over the country. All news was local, and it had to be pretty horrific to make it up to Walter Cronkite's desk. Now we get amber alerts from CNN in Los Angeles for a kid swiped by their non-custodial parent in Portland Maine.

    The national attention these events get only contributes to a nutjob's real intent, which is fame and notoriety.

    This thread already seems more twisted than the usual mass tragedy condolences thread. Why we now have a pic of the perpetrator posted is beyond me.

    Because he looks totally normal.

    Would it be possible for you to remove the picture? I ask respectfully as this thread is for the victims, not the perpetrator. He does not deserve to live in infamy here.
